An opaque yellow.




"Yellow Brick Road is a fascinating colour, warm caramel brown tones with a blush of warmer and darker milk chocolate brown in places. It is easily going to become one of my favourite glasses to play with." Read more at Kitzbitz Art Glass' blog. – Jolene Wolfe

Messy Tester's Feedback

  • Yellow Brick Road was mixed in response to requests for a pale yellow. In rod form, it looks quite similar to Honey Mustard. Generally testers reported that it melts differently from Honey Mustard.
Yellow Brick Road is a buttery hue, while Honey Mustard has a rosier cast. – Heather Sellers
Yellow Brick Road is essentially the same as Honey Mustard. – Gloria Sevey
Yellow Brick Road takes on a lovely colour variation that Honey Mustard does not have. – Jolene Wolfe

"Yellow Brick Road is like the Effetre Opal Yellow of old in that you can get it to go different colours depending on the way you treat it. I found that if I made a spacer with Yellow Brick Road, let it round up outside the flame and put it straight in the kiln, I got a lovely even pale lemon yellow. If I gave it a few wafts through the flame after rounding up, its colour darkened slightly, producing a deeper yellow. The intensity of the the yellow also depends on how much of it had been used. Where there is less yellow glass [like in the scroll bead] the yellow is paler, whereas in the spacers and the raised flower, it has a much deeper hue. I noticed that when encased [like the petals of the flower] Yellow Brick Road tends to go much darker and take on an almost pale apricot tinge." Read more at Laura's tumblr.

"Yellow Brick Road is a golden kissed Dijon. The color is a more subtle tone of Honey Mustard. When initially introduced to the flame, the glass is extremely milky in color. During the heating/cooling process of working the glass, the golden tones begin to bloom." Read more at Heather's blog.

"Yellow Brick Road is another opaque yellow deeper in tone and casts caramel tones as it is heated. I sprinkled some Glass Diversions Persian Paisley frit and created the twists in the melted in frit." Read more at Darlene's blog.

"The two round headpins are pretty evenly coloured, but the flattened one on the right shows a rosy blush from the rapid cooling and re-heating to firepolish." Read more at DragonJools blog.

"Yellow Brick Road is a winner in my book. It’s hard to find soft yellows that behave and it did. The bead that has the interesting browns was overheated and probably mistreated."
