Day 388-Opaline

Blenko Water Botle Topaz

Blenko Water Bottle Opaline

I am calling this color Opaline to be consistent with other water bottles from this “batch” of glass that I have already posted.  If you search Opaline on the blogs search there will be 2 examples (Day 232 and 298)  which, like the example above, are etched 2009.  The color in the base where the glass is the thickest matches the color that Blenko calls Opaline which is most often seen in bowls and other utilitarian pieces.  Although the photo makes this glass look a little “peachy’, it is actually more of a yellow but very pale.  Jonna thinks that this may have been a color made from cullet.
