Egg White (left) & Lemonade (right)- The translucency of each is not created by striking in the flame or by tweaking the flame chemistry, this is exactly how each glass works up in a neutral flame.

"Lemonade is a pale ivory semi-opaque colour. I had the same kind of unluck with it at first that I had with Egg White, and wish it was less prone to streaking and boiling. I did look on CiM's page though, and see that other people [probably ones who work cooler than I do] had much better luck with it. The best results I got with Lemonade came when I covered it in silver glass. Also, it separates Copper Green, and I love that effect a lot." Read more at Melanie's blog.

"Lemonade is a pale yellow misty opal paired here with a mixture of several Double Helix silver glass and streams of 99% fine silver wire encased in clear. The spacers show the beautiful pale yellow in this lemony glass." Read more at Darlene's blog.

"On the left, Lemonade, and on the right, Egg White. The Lemonade is clearer, the Egg White, more translucent. The second from the left shows a lot of bubbles, but in all fairness - I got it really freakin' hot and I saw it bubble up like crazy when I made it. I'm currently working on a Nortel Arrow, which can deliver a laser-like level of heat. . . .  I am really liking this trend with the matching colours in different translucencies."

"A nice translucent misty whitish yellow. Looks good encased. I really like the color. When heating in the flame, it is a beautiful translucent yellow- I would call it Hot Lemonade."
Suzanne Cancilla-Fox
"Lemonade is another misty opal. This bead has some gold dichro encased in Lemonade with Double Helix Aurae shards. I love Lemonade- it does seem more yellow with silver glass. It does retain its mistiness nicely."
Caroline Davis
"Lemonade is a zesty new transparent glass. The fresh color is a welcome addition to the CiM line. True to the name, the color is quite a match for lemonade. No shocking or bubbling occurred during testing."
Heather Sellers
"Such a pretty pale misty opal colour from CiM. It's a baby sister to Egg White, more translucent with a touch of cloudiness about it. I found that this one liked to be worked a touch cooler, but the results are well worth the patience. Lemonade is a great base, reasonably neutral and a far cry from a boring beige. This worked well with the frit blend and silvered ivory, and etches really well which shows off the colour beautifully! Another winner from CiM!"

"Lemonade is described as a misty opal, it looks to me to be the palest possible shade of yellow and has a lovely cloudy look to it. Another stiff and well behaved glass to work with. Lemonade also does not react with either turquoise or with my handmade Effetre silvered ivory stringer." Read more at Kitzbitz Art Glass' blog.

"Lemonade is a beautiful colour - it’s clear with a hint of misty creaminess. It’s like a misty opal version of CiM Egg White. The rod I had was quite shocky with a couple of big bubbles in it but after I nipped off the end couple of inches I had no more shocky-poppy issues with it. The glass did have a few microbubbles in it but these are nothing terrible. Lemonade goes a really bright yellow while it’s heated which I found amusing and novel. [I’m easily pleased.] Lemonade has a nice level of opal mistiness to it. It’s subtle but it’s there. Lovely glass. The photograph was taken indoors in natural daylight." See more at Laura's tumblr.

"This colour really looks like lemonade! Lovely to work with, I found working higher up the flame works better with this colour, looks lovely just on its own as well as being mixed with other colours. Lemonade would make a wonderful base for a mythical/foggy, ethereal style bead when mixed with frits and swirled."

"These are Lemonade with a little bit of dichroic mixed in. They look like Ethiopian opals! My new favorite!"
