NEW COLOURS FROM GAFFER
Raw Umber #169
A rich opaque brown just like the raw umber used by painters for drapery and skin shadows.
A dreamy opaline redolent of the South Seas. Not as opaque as our regular opals.
A compliment to Oceana. A revival of the very popular Zimmermann # Z-87.
A rich yellow through to amber when blown thicker. A cheaper alternative to silver bearing glasses. Non lead.
# 045 Indigo and #021 Midnight Blue were too dark. We have lightened both of them up by 25% and made Indigo more violet. We hope you will try them again. Look out for Melt # 5452 or later for Indigo and Melt # 5441 or later for Midnight Blue.
We are pleased to be able to recommend a new 96 cullet designed by Peter Kuchinke and manufactured by Cristalica in Germany. The fit with Gaffer is good and our analysis of the recipe shows it to be easy to melt with excellent working properties. Contact www.cristalica.de
