Porpoise Ltd Run (511828)<br />An opaque gray.

An opaque gray.




"Porpoise melted smoothly with no shockiness or bubbles. It works excellent alone or as a base color. It is a fabulous base for frits. A base of Porpoise was a gorgeous base for Val Cox Starry Night frit blend. Porpoise was a fantastic base for the stipple stitch bead with Triton stringer. I love greys and Porpoise is no exception." – Paula Schertz

"It must be tricky making grey glass and coming up with an interesting name for it. Porpoise is a good name, though. Much better than ‘John Major’ or ‘Filing Cabinet’. Porpoise is a nice medium grey. It’s quite streaky but melted fine and the rod was well-behaved on the shockpoppery front. Porpoise goes green when it’s hot and for a while I thought I’d open the kiln to green beads but then I remembered that no, porpoises are grey and yep, the beads ended up that way too."

"A beautiful grey green that reacts beautifully with silver glass. A creamy consistency that can leave some trails of colour the more it is heated, giving a more organic look. Here shown with Effetre black 064 dots and DH Triton dots over the black dots."
