Inchworm Ltd Run (511451)<br />A bright opal green.

A bright opal green.




"Inchworm is a bright juicy green that is more transparent than CiM's Poison Apple, which is a more standard opalino and can strike lighter and more opaque. Inchworm [like Chartreuse] didn't opacify at all and remained a lovely uniform misty transparent." Read more at Heather's blog. – Heather Kelly

"The left side of this bead is Inchworm, and the right side of this bead is Poison Apple. . . .  But here is why the result was so surprising. Rod colour-wise, Inchworm and Poison Apple are very similar. Inchworm looks a touch more yellow, and a little more translucent. Inchworm seems greener and more transparent than I remember the much-loved, now-defunct Vetrofond Parrot Green being, but it is what I wanted when I first bought Poison Apple. It seems like this colour could easily replace Poison Apple in the palette, because I don't think anyone buys Poison Apple for the first time hoping for it to opacify and be much lighter after working than it was in the rod. Poison Apple is beautiful in its own right, though, once you get to know it, so maybe enough people love it that we need both after all." Read more at Melanie's blog.

"Inchworm was a joy to use, very smooth and luscious when heated. I don’t often use the opals because of bubbling problems. Inchworm had no issues. I loved it."

"This glass works beautifully with silver with no adverse reaction lines. It seems to have an inner glow that is bright and cheerful for this spring and summer!" Read more at Darlene's blog.

"If you thought Chartreuse was juicy [and it is] - then Inchworm is a close second. Less yellow, but a very bright, green - translucent - not quite a totally transparent colour." Read more at Dwyn's blog.

“Inchworm is the juiciest lime green I've ever used. The left hand beads are plain, Inchworm on the bottom and Vetrofond Key Lime on the top. The next beads are encased in Moretti Super Clear, Inchworm on the bottom and Key Lime on the top. The beads to the right of those have a dot pattern in clear, which did not show at all on the Inchworm. You can see it faintly on the Key Lime. The next beads have been rolled once in Silver Lake frit [I find it to be one of the most reactive frits, therefore a good one to use in colour sampling]. The far right hand beads have fine silver wire wrapped around them.”

"Grape Ape splits nicely in the swirl bead; really lovely as a base for stormed Ekho. Mainly yellows from the Raku frit on the bird."

"Inchworm is a lush, lollipop lime-green. Unlike Poison Apple, this slightly opalino glass does not tend to lighten when pressed or worked for a long period of time. The color remains vibrant and true."
