Belladonna: Aqua Splash

Belladonna is a Boutique glass - just offering a few, select, specialty colours. This is Aqua Splash. It is an intense aqua colour that reduces.

These are 5 self-colored spacers - all reduced. 


This is a base of white, with stripes of Aqua Splash, then reduced. The white has fumed to a dark ivory colour. The Aqua Splash kept going muddy on my, and I had to unreduce it a number of times. Finally, I got it to reduce in a manner that I didn't hate.


It's not so much a metallic reduction as more a misty/cloudy type effect. With some hints of iridescence.

  1. I really like your final results; the Aqua Splash on each end of your bead reminds me of DH Gaia, when it is reduced. The spacers came out interesting and pretty akso. Thanks for sharing.

    I found your blog from roaming beadFX...I love your work, but I must say that your NAILS impress me! :) I work with my hands all the time and I wish I could have them look half as nice as yours!

    Lovely work - I'll be sure to keep your blog bookmarked!
