Dollhouse Milky Ltd Run (511928)<br />A milky opal pink.

A milky opal pink.




"This glass is very similar to Peony from last year. So, of course I love it. Dollhouse Milky and Misty are both so dreamy and super easy to work with. No shocking, no popping, and as smooth as silk to melt. Great for sculpture. Just a love fest all around." – Lori Peterson

CiM Tester Feedback

  • Dollhouse Misty/Milky is our 907 Rose Quartz formula turned into a misty/milky opal. So were Ballerina/Peony, but Dollhouse is a more successful rendition.

"CiM have been working towards a more standardised amount of opalescence across their Milky and Misty opal glass lines. They have also simplified the naming by giving a single name to the hue followed by the tag Milky or Misty. These pretty pinks are called Dollhouse. The difference between Milky and Misty glass in these two shades is much easier to see when you have the beads in your hands. I have found it very tricky to capture in a photograph. Milky beads on the top row, Misty beads on the bottom row. I hope it gives an idea of the very subtle difference between them. Milky beads look whiter or more pastel to my eye."

"Dollhouse is a beautiful pink and really nice to work with. Dollhouse Milky in my opinion is a match with the old Rose Quartz. A beautiful opal pink."

"Such a gorgeous opal pink. A definite favourite of mine. Highly recommend pre heating the rod. Melts beautifully and colour stays true. Love the inner glow this colour creates. If you love pink you will love this."

"Dollhouse Milky is not shocky and I had no issues with bubbling or scumming. Played nicely with dichroic and silver glass on the same bead!"

"Dollhouse Milky [on left] is milkier than its misty counterpart [on right], and more opaque yet still translucent. A really lovely colour and glass. Again, no trouble with it at all." Read more at Laura's blog.

"Over the past few production runs, CiM has not only been working on gorgeous colours, but gorgeous colours that keep their transparent/translucent qualities even after heating & cooling and garaging. They have for some colours, also split their production pot to make two versions of the same colour  … a misty [more transparent] and a milky [more translucent] version, giving artists much more control over the kind of beads they want to make rather than being restrained by what the market offers. These pinks really have the Miami art deco meets ice cream sundae vibe! Misty falls between Ballerina and Peony while Milky is more saturated. Both are beautiful strong pinks. And I'm really glad that they share the same name, as it's obvious that the colours are related. Both melted smoothly with no issues."
