Candlelight Ltd Run (511322)<br />A pale transparent yellow.

A pale transparent yellow.




"My rod looked very pale, so much so I almost discarded it, but I'm so glad that I didn't. Like many pale transparents, their real beauty shines through when you work them up into beads. I like to add simple textures to the surface of transparent beads to allow the light to bounce and reflect through them. The clarity in this glass is superb, and the colour builds up to show it's true potential! Make sure you don't overlook this one!" – Trudi Doherty

Messy Tester's Feedback

  • Candlelight was melted in response to requests for a transparent non-striking non-lemon yellow.
Here you can see that Candlelight is substantially paler than Effetre Straw Yellow. I am excited about this colour and want more of it, because it has so much potential for fun. Read more at Melanie’s blog. – Melanie Graham

“Candlelight is a very pale yellow transparent colour. It comes out very true to the colour of the rod, although while you are working it it blushes a deep yellow. . . . One of the tests that I like to do with pale and medium transparents is to see what happens to silver foil when I use them to encase the foil. When I do this test, this is exactly the reaction that I am hoping to find - check out how golden and beautiful the silver foil went under Candlelight. This means that Candlelight will also make wicked silver glass frit stringer." Read more at Melanie’s blog.

"Candlelight is a transparent that at first glance appears clear but has just a tint of yellow to it. Lemongrass is an opal glass with a slight yellow hue. Both of these colors melted very smoothly and had no shocking or bubbling. As with other opals, the glass is somewhat stiffer than your typical transparents but it makes shaping a dream! The beads I tested had the colors laid side by side and were not encased. The Lemongrass fades into the Candlelight for a really nice effect. For those who shy away from the colors that seem un-encaseable, I challenge you to use them in different ways so that you can learn how the glass can work for you. Overall Lemongrass is a color I would love to see permanently in the CiM line!"

"Candlelight, a lovely transparent yellow, with Chocolate & silvered ivory shards, created subtle patterns." Read more at Darlene's blog.

"As soon as I saw this glass I knew I would love it and I was right. Candlelight is probably my favourite out of all of the new CiM glasses. It's perfectly named too. Candlelight is a transparent very pale yellow. It melts *perfectly* and it is just the right consistency to work with. Sometimes pale transparents can be quite stiff but this is just right. The glass has a wonderful clarity to it – no bubbles. If I get my hands on more of this I swear that it will never see the tumbler because this glass needs to shine; the way the light plays with it is magical. Oh, and this is probably irrelevant but I’m saying it anyway: the way it looks when it is molten is absolutely marvellous! While hot it is the most amazing golden yellow and it’s mesmerising to see."

"This was a surprise, don't judge by the colour of the rod. When heated, it looks just like delicate candlelight! The magic in this glass is its ability to dance in the light, not a solid hue but one that changes as the light bounces off it and through it. So beautiful."
