A misty opal white - same hue as Unicorn.




"Incredibly beautiful sums up this glass. Beautiful in rod form, even more beautiful when transformed into beads. The opalness and inner glow is just absolutely stunning, it gives a mystical look and feel. Works beautifully with silver glass and the light accentuates the hues as it bounces off the colour." – Juliette Mullett

Messy Tester's Feedback

  • London Fog is a misty opal white - a misty opal version of a cross between Cirrus & Marshmallow. Its milky opal counterpart is Unicorn.
“London Fog gives a more consistent colour than Cirrus.” – Trudi Doherty

"I love Cirrus, London Fog, Swan and Unicorn!"
Suzy Hannabuss
"Swan is very similar to London Fog but I still prefer London Fog. I really like all the misty opals."

"London Fog is a lovely color very close to Cirrus...just a bit mistier."
Gloria Sevey
"I have encased these with London Fog, while still translucent, to me it looks far better than encasing with clear. London Fog gives a gentle filter and the result is a much softer effect!"

"This is London Fog and Unicorn. Variants of Cirrus, these two really show off CiM’s misty opals and translucents. The best news is they stay translucent through sculpting, reheating and annealing. Brilliant! Also worth noting is that they were put in annealing bubbles and then batch annealed. No cracking, didn’t need to baby them through the sculpting process. None of the beads I made cracked. Not even when I couldn’t decide which pink I wanted to use for the ears and nose."
Lori Peterson
"London Fog is the misty opal version of Unicorn. It’s more transparent and has that really beautiful opalescent colour flash thing when the sunlight hits it. I encountered no shockiness, bubbling or pitting, but I found it is quite soft so don’t get working it too hot. The heart bead kept losing its shape as I was working on it but the glass stood up to repeated heating, cooling and shaping really well. Very pretty glass!" Read more at Laura's blog.

"London Fog is a beautiful white misty opal. It is smooth and no shocking. Another one of my favourites."
Suzy Hannabuss
"Made in the same hue, London Fog is a misty opal and Unicorn its translucent counterpart. I was excited to try out London Fog to see how it compares to Cirrus. As I make a lot of smaller beads Cirrus didn't always go cloudy for me. London Fog has a beautiful surreal misty quality that also shines, even in smaller beads. I also used it to encase over Firedragon and it acts a bit like a filter to soften the colour. The tiny bead at the end had the etch test, and unlike Cirrus this one etches."
