Artist Description by Mike Shelbo:
"Works beautifully, melts smooth and creamy. Peacock is one of my favorite opaque colors Glass Alchemy makes because of how much ease there is in working this color.
A peacock blue opaque that can be worked with or without encasement and has natural variations in the finish depending on whether or not you intensely spot heat detail areas of your work before it goes to the kiln. The variations are tints of a bit darker peacock blue that can be controlled by layering color and adding detail, which adds to the natural finished look of the piece.
Peacock should be worked like other opaque and Crayon colors, yet will hold up in a more intense and long working session without encasement or need for concern of surface finish." - Mike Shelbo
