Beads and jewllery on Folksy


Messy testing - Diaphanous, Fjord, Pond Slime and Aquamarine Ice ltd run

Today I am looking at some of the new colours available soon from Creation is Messy. I have beads made from 4 new opal colours, all of which are available in a Misty and Milky  version.

The first hearts here are made with Diaphanous ltd run. The beads on the left are Diaphanous Misty decorated with white dots. The heart pair on the right are Diaphanous Misty decorated with Reichenbach black stringer and dots.

Both pairs of these off white glass hearts are beautiful though for me the more translucent misty version just has the edge. 

Fjord ltd run is a stunning new aqua blue opal addition to the CoE 104 palette. I find the misty (white dots) and milky (black stringer) versions have a similar opacity with the Misty version only looking more obviously translucent when the beads are held up to the light.

Creation is Messy make absolutely fabulous opal green glass and Pond Slime ltd run is no exception. Again the misty (white dots) and milky (black detail) versions appear to be quite similar until you hold them up to the light and then it's easy to see that the Misty version has much more translucence.

Arctic milky ltd run looks to be a pale opal blue shade in rod form. When I opened the kiln I was very surprised to find these lovely warm grey hearts. 

As before the misty version of this glass has more translucence (white dots) but also I find that Arctic milky opal looks more pastel than it's misty counterpart.
