  • Banana Cream was melted in response to requests for more pastel opaque yellows.
It is a bit like Effetre ivory. – Miriam Steger

"Banana Cream is a pale, opaque yellow. It's similar in colour to Effetre Opal Yellow, but is less reactive and less prone to separate on top of and underneath other colours. Here you can see that when I reduced the Banana Cream, it got a hair darker. I didn't notice any very significant striking behaviour in the other beads that I made with this colour, so I'm guessing that the colour change is just because the reducing flame is less clean, so the colour got dirtied up a bit."

"Banana Cream does not react with copper based colours which makes it a wonderful alternative for Effetre pale ivory if those pesky reaction lines are not what you are looking for. The little beads here are Banana Cream with Vetrofond dark turquoise dots. The centre row of turquoise dots have been partially covered with Butternut. You can clearly see a reaction line between the Butternut and the turquoise and no reaction line between the turquoise and Banana Cream." Read more at Kitzbitz Art Glass' blog.

"When I paired it with Double Helix silver infused Helios glass in dots, scrolls and lines, the silver glass fumed the Banana Cream a deep golden color. The spacers are quite light in comparison." Read more at Darlene's blog.

"Banana Cream, non-streaky, non-reactive light ivory. CiM calls it a pale yellow, and it does have a creamy overtone, but that fades with long working times. It looks like Dark Ivory in the unworked rod, but gets lighter when heated. This - worked fairly fast, retains a bananary creaminess." Read more at DragonJools blog.

"I love this color, it is a beautiful pale creamy yellow, literally the color of mashed  bananas. It really comes alive when used as a base for silver glass. I made a heart with Gaia stringer, Banana Cream fumed to a golden yellow! This effect was less noticeable when a striking glass was used. Banana Cream melts beautifully with no shocking or bubbling."

"Described as an opaque pale yellow, this colour does not disappoint! This melts like a dream and is totally fuss free! I did notice while working it did go a very pale off white, but this did strike to a stable pale yellow without any help from me. I made polka beads with Effetre Lavender and silvered ivory. The silvered ivory did spread more but that is more characteristic of ivory, but you can see that there was no reaction with either the silver or the ivory. The two beads on the left are Gelly's Sty on Painted Hills."

"Banana Cream is a soft, pale yellow. The color of this opaque glass is similar to fresh churned honey butter. The warm tone nicely bridges the color gap between Buttermilk and Painted Hills. No shocking or bubbling occurred during testing." Read more at Heather's blog.

"Banana Cream melted smoothly with no shockiness, and no bubbles. It is a new color to the 104 palette. It is similar to Painted Hills, but Banana Cream is a bit more creamy yellow compared to the bit more golden hue of the Painted Hills. Encased with Lemon Drop it is very pretty and has some rosy hue spots on it. It is a gorgeous butter yellow hue on both the Tuxedo and the Black Ivory."
