"Stormclouds" Bead Set

"Stormclouds" on Etsy:Triton and Ivory Encased Bead SetStormclouds by BeadAbundantThese were made with a base of Triton and Ivory, swirled together and then encased with Aether clear from Double Helix. I love the organic reactions between the Triton and Ivory!

Hi Mallory and Sue! the blue color comes from encasing a reduced color like shiny Triton or Aurae.
To get the blue under the encasing, reduce the bead until the glass is shiny, then encase as quickly as possible so you don't have to put the reduced bead back in the flame and lose the reduction.
