A lime green misty opal.




"Budgerigar is a slightly greener version of Elixir. The slightly transparent glass falls between Chartreuse and Jelly Bean in the CiM family. No shocking or bubbling occurred during testing. Here, Budgerigar is used as a lens for the layered accent dots on a base of Weeping Willow." – Heather Sellers

"Budgerigar is a misty opal green. It’s like a slightly greener, more transparent version of Ectoplasm. Budgerigar melted without any issues. A lovely glass to work with. The photograph was taken indoors in natural daylight." Read more at Laura's tumblr.

"Budgerigar is a new misty opal green, close to Mantis but has noticeably more yellow tones, and is more translucent than Jelly Bean. It melts smoothly in the flame with no issues. As these new opals have been developed to stay translucent, they are ideal for layering which can open up to a whole range of colour possibilities! I have used it to encase over Effetre Daffodil and CiM Foam, and it gives a gratifying depth to a bead. On the heart bead I used it as a base for a reactive lustre glass and it really makes it sing! A truly beautiful shade."

"A beautiful misty opal green that is heading more of a kiwi opal green. Easy to work, fuss free. Seen here with Double Helix Triton outer decoration. Absolutely beautiful."
