Aquatic Carnival was originally developed as middle density in a triad; Spring Luster as the tame one and Amazon Night as the robust color. The color is a playful striking color, yielding creams to metallic color. It can provide very distinctive red colors when reduced.

"Aquatic Carnival really taught me the potential of the Carnival series. It is a very deep teal transparent, packed with silver and copper. A neutral flame keeps the piece looking like the cane before being fired. An over oxidizing sharp hot flame setting may scum or boil when repeatedly immersed into the fire. To best avoid unwanted effects, either work your piece in the middle of the length of your torch flame or pre-encase with clear. When Aquatic Carnival is on the surface you can repeatedly reduce in the torch flame to bring out an array of color and effects. Try rotating the area you want reduced until a soft orange glow (not molten) appears, then remove from flame and wait a moment to see the result. Reduction at the end of the creation process yields completely different results than a piece worked in a reduction flame the whole time it was made. Bursts and gradients of greens and blues on the top of the deep teal creates beautiful tones, very reminiscent of water and the play of light on the ocean." - Mike Shelbo
