This shuttle has DEPTH!
The base color is 'clear' which allows the brilliance of the underlying copper to shine up and through. The blue crackle design features are created with a transparent blue and an opaque light blue.

Watch for future posts of the crackle enamel tatting shuttles I have been producing. I will also be posting on my FB page: ShuttleSmithTatting
This is one of my first 'crackle' shuttles and is actually quite a complex design.
The base is probably a clear, transparent enamel which allows the copper metal to shine through. The coloration is a mix of a transparent blue, opaque red and yellow.
