"I did have a couple odd reactions with a few of the colors- apparently they didn't like the 1050 garage temp of my kiln and the color went whackadoodle!" – Joy Munshower

Messy Tester's Feedback

  • Summer Haze is a yellow misty opal; its milky opal counterpart is Lemongrass. We melted Summer Haze/Lemongrass in response to artist requests for non lemon yellow opals.
  • Special thanks to Claudia Eidenbenz for providing the photos in this section.

Claudia Eidenbenz’s "Vetrothek" (glass library) is a great resource for color comparisons.

"Effetre emerald green base, Double Helix Gaia streaks, Summer Haze torso-nice, viscous. A little reduction on right breast-had to pluck out. Like butter. Love this color."

"Summer Haze is an unusually good base colour for silver glass. My reducing silver glass and striking silver glass both really bloomed on top of it." Read more at Melanie's blog.

"Summer Haze is a misty opal in a pale straw yellow. Goes a bright lemon yellow when hot, but reverts to straw when cool. How it looks depends a lot on the light. Such a nice pale color, more of a neutral than a yellow. I'd like to play more with this one." Read more at DragonJools blog.

"My first beads with Lemongrass came out of the kiln significantly darker than the rod which surprised me. There’s clearly a range of tones that this glass can offer depending on exact heating conditions. I found Summer Haze to be slightly more transparent than Lemongrass and on the darker side colour wise, but I suspect this is affected by exact heating conditions and my hunch is that a range of colour tones could be achieved here too. Both are very easy to work with, I think they will make lovely base colours."

"The barrel bead is a base of Summer Haze with blown shards of Onyx with Pendragonfyre frit!" See more at Darlene's blog.

"Summer Haze is another gorgeous, unique, misty opal yellow. It’s just a tinge browner than its close cousin, Lemongrass. I love, love, love them both."

"Summer Haze is a yellow misty opal. Experimenting using it as a base and encasing copper foil with Double Helix clear glasses Aether and Zephyr. I added a few drops of silver glass for a bit of added glitter." Read more at Darlene's blog.

"Summer Haze is a really pretty and unique colour, it's the misty opal counterpart to Lemongrass, but it is far more transparent, while keeping a mysterious mistiness quality! Here I've paired it with my own frit blend Coast, going for a rustic beach vibe. There is something special that keeps drawing me towards this colour, and even though I'm automatically drawn towards bright happy colours, I feel that this still achieves the same happiness in a neutral shade. Just look at how the light shines through it! Love!"

"The name of the glass really does sum up what you see. So delicate and pretty - reminiscent of the summer sun beating down and filtering through a camera lens, that soft summer hazy glow you see in photos. Neutral enough to go with so many other colour palettes but beautiful enough to stand alone. Love it."
Juliette Mullett
"This is Summer Haze and Lemongrass. Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous. A dream to melt, no fussiness or shocking, fabulous for sculpture because it doesn’t mind being heated and reheated. Summer Haze is a misty opal and is slightly more translucent than Lemongrass. No weird reactions to pink, which is nice."
Lori Peterson
"Summer Haze and Lemongrass are very needed! Thank you!"
Olga Ivashina
"Summer Haze is the same hue as Lemongrass but it’s one of CiM’s misty opals so it’s less translucent than Lemongrass. It’s definitely got that opalescent glow to it when the light shines through it. Summer Haze is totally unfussy and a pleasure to work with. The silver core bead here is Summer Haze with CiM Monarch scrolls." Read more at Laura's blog.

“Today I tested Summer Haze- I’m really into this color! It has some of the best opalescent flash of any glass I’ve ever seen. It’s extremely hard to photograph but I think the picture shows what I’m talking about. Bright orange highlights and green undertones. The rod definitely looks more pale than the finished piece does, it seemed to develop more orange color in the kiln. A great ethereal color that I’m very interested in working with further... I don’t feel I’ve discovered all its secrets."
Alexis Berger
"Such pretty glass that I have just made plain beads with them both. The light catches them both beautifully. Summer Haze reminds me of Swarovski Sand Opal crystals! Colours I've not seen before in 104. CiM has spoilt us again! Both of these melted just fine with no pre-heating."
