Black glass with a silver patina

511885

This colour is part of the CiM colour archive and not generally available (last checked 9/2/2020)

  • Gunmetal is a very soft glass to work with, melting quickly and remaining fluid as white and pale opaque colours tend to do. 
  • It can flow to spread over the top of surface decoration if worked for a long time in the flame. 
  • I find an oxidising flame will bring out the metallic patina most successfully.

Picture description:

Gunmetal beads in various shapes. Some have been decorated with white latticino surface decoration.

I made these beads in autumn 2009.
