A pretty all-season blend with a bit of sparkle. Avoid overheating to retain the sparkle effect, otherwise this versatile blend is fuss-free.

I loved the cool tones of this blend, and the sparkle. I found it worked really well with the opaque and transparent blues and greens, and the lighter transparents. It encased well in Lauscha and had some great reactions with silver foil. I think some of the beads I made would be perfect for Christmas or for Saint Patrick’s Day themes. Many of the beads came out looking “pepperminty” to me – cool and fresh.

Here are some rounds using Emerald Glacier.
Next, here are some lentil beads using Emerald Glacier with some of the more reactive Moretti base colours.
And finally, here are my paddle tests of this blend. It doesn’t demonstrate the 104 palette in full by any means, but gives a pretty good idea of how the blend reacts with a variety of colours.
