Default CIM Little Boy Blue

It's not supposed to be blue, is it? It's green in the rod, and it stays green after it's melted. Or am I doing something wrong?

Thanks Patty!

It's funny, but my Little Boy Blue doesn't look like that. It is definitely green.

I don't think I'd call any of the beads I made with LBB green, but I did get a greenish cast on where I reduced some silverglass too hard... I wonder if they mislabeled some? Do you have any photos of what you've made, and of the rods?

Okay, here is a picture - one bead of a set I made that is LBB with Moody Blue on top. And three rods for comparison - one of my LBB, one of Effetre light turquoise (which I always think has a slight greenish cast), and one of Vetrofond pearl gray.

The LBB in the bead is way green, which may have been because of the silverglass - but I'm sure it was pretty green even before I added the silverglass.

I'm not saying it's a bad green, I'm really just confused about the name and wondering if it's supposed to be blue?

I have never seen it, but I notice that inside the hole it looks rod color. Maybe the silver glass is changing the color?

I would definitely blame the silverglass for that. If you look around the wings of my birds with the metallic wings, you'll see the same effect. I know some people reported that LBB didn't fume with silverglass, I found that it actually did, if you gave it a good long reduction. When I've super lightly reduced, there hasn't had a problem. (BUT I've never used Moody Blue, either, so maybe I'm way off base!)

Mine stayed a pretty blue green, I think it reads as a blue to me. Based on your picture I agree the silver glass probably fumed it to a green color
