"I did have a couple odd reactions with a few of the new colors- apparently they didn't like the 1050 garage temp of my kiln and the color went whackadoodle!"

"This white opal is like an opal marshmallow that is semi-translucent with a delicate inner glow. A slightly off-white that is just stunning."
Juliette Mullett
"This is London Fog and Unicorn. Variants of Cirrus, these two really show off CiM’s misty opals and translucents. The best news is they stay translucent through sculpting, reheating and annealing. Brilliant! Also worth noting is that they were put in annealing bubbles and then batch annealed. No cracking, didn’t need to baby them through the sculpting process. None of the beads I made cracked. Not even when I couldn’t decide which pink I wanted to use for the ears and nose."

"Unicorn is a translucent opal white that plays nicely and works really well with stringer. The silver core bead here is decorated with scrolls in Effetre Periwinkle 220. Unicorn is a really good base glass and it would work well for sculpting too – not too soft, nor too stiff." Read more at Laura's blog.

"Made in the same hue, London Fog is a misty opal and Unicorn its translucent counterpart. Unicorn is a gorgeous translucent opal, and here I've compared it to Marshmallow. It's much less dense and when I've used frit, the effect is so much softer."
