Canoe Ltd Run (511728)<br />An opaque silver brown.

An opaque silver brown.




"Canoe melted smooth and easy. No problems with shockiness or bubbles. It is similar in color to Safari, but is definitely more golden tinted than Safari. It would be a great color to use for various animal fur colors. It is a unique color to the 104 palette. There was not a problem encasing it. The only reactions I noted were on the P-276 Dark Ivory a slightly darker brown ring appeared on the outside of the Canoe dot. Also, there was a reaction with the silver foil and frit, the frit turned to a dark red brown." Read more at Paula's blog. – Paula Schertz

Messy Tester's Feedback

  • Canoe is a unique addition to the 104 lampworking palette.
Canoe is a warm, toasted chestnut. The glass features a blush of russet when worked with a cool tool. When placed in a side by side comparison with Effetre Red Roof Tile, Canoe has a lovely hint of espresso brown. A lovely and unique addition to the 104 palette. – Heather Sellers
The closest colour to Canoe is Stone Ground which is a more reactive colour and you can see on here how the silvered ivory band is narrower . . . the Stone Ground has 'swallowed' some of this. – Trudi Doherty
"Here is Canoe with Kugler Beadmaking 104 Silver Petrol [previously known as ASK Silver Rattan], CiM Pumpkin Unique #1, ASK Caramel Apple [now known as Iris Savanne], Kugler Silver Brown [previously known as ASK Silver Cinnamon], and CiM Stone Ground. ASK Silver Brown, in this picture, looks almost the same colour as Canoe, but I don't think that Canoe, even with the addition of silver, strikes to as dark a colour as Silver Brown does. Canoe is substantially browner and darker than Stone Ground." Read more at Melanie's blog. – Melanie Graham

"Canoe is a striking silver-rich brown like Canyon de Chelly and the ASK/Kugler browns. It has some lovely light and dark streaks, and can go a yellower or redder brown. The rod itself was exceptionally well-behaved, especially as I had a slightly thicker one. With silver-rich colours some shocking at the end is fairly usual, and nothing of the sort happened here."

"You can see typical turquoise/ivory [copper/sulfur] reactions. The Canoe bleeds into the ivory and turquoise, but doesn't form a dark line." Read more at DragonJools blog.

"I tried working this at different temperatures, and I have to say - across the board, I got pretty consistent results." Read more at DragonJools blog.

"Canoe is a lovely warm brown, perfect for animal beads. It reminded me of Canyon de Chelly a bit in how it struck in the flame so I tried it as a base for some Double Helix Psyche. Wow I love it as a base for silver glass."

"Canoe is a gorgeous, tawny striking brown. People who make sculptural animal beads are going to go nuts for this colour, since it is decidedly lion-coloured. It's also really well-suited to organic bead designs, because it's fabulously reactive without any of those reactions causing unpleasant blackening and muckiness. This colour is a striking colour. These spacers were made at the same time, but the rightmost one got an extra blast of heat in a reduction flame before being popped into the kiln, resulting in a darker, warmer colour."

"Canoe is a rich caramel color that shows some different shades when worked a bit. The second from the top example was dabbed with a bit of Terra and reduced which didn’t seem to change the base color."
Gloria Sevey
"When you melt Canoe it looks like a washed out and pale beige, the colours come in when you bring the bead back to the flame to strike it. Canoe also strikes in the kiln, the spacers in this set were made 2 to a mandrel, the first spacer was struck as the second was made and the second went into the kiln un-struck. As you can see, all of the spacers have come out of the kiln a uniform shade. There is a reaction between Canoe and fine silver leaf, no colour change as such but a lovely metallic sheen is left when the leaf is vapourised in the flame." Read more at Kitzbitz Art Glass' blog.

"In the rod Canoe is a rich caramel colour, but this one is a striker and changes shades up to a deep chestnut. I've added some silver ivory stringer to one bead and it sits nicely without over reacting [the bead was made in a normal flame with no extreme heating]. When I made the polka dot beads, I made them on the same mandrel. I could see as I was making them that the beads were striking, and before I put them in the kiln I heated them both to try and even out the heat. As you can see that striking did not settle out and they have colour variation in them. This would make an interesting glass for sculpture beads!"

"When introduced to fine silver, the glass actually becomes lighter in color." Read more at Heather's blog.
