Beeswax Misty Ltd Run (511328)<br />A misty opal yellow.

A misty opal yellow.




"Beeswax Misty is a lovely pale yellow. When I layered it over Canary, it did react and turned a greenish grey [which appeared before I applied the silver glass]. Not shocky and no issues with bubbling or scumming. Played nicely with dichroic and silver glass on surface." – Terri Herron

"The closest colour to Beeswax is Lemongrass but as you can see Lemongrass is much lighter. I spent some time striking the opal glass and did get a much deeper richer yellow. Beautiful colour and again so much nicer to work with."

"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. Beeswax is a new opal yellow glass hue which has also been formulated with two shades of opalescence. On the left is Beeswax Misty, on the right is Beeswax Milky. 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 look whiter or more pastel to my eye." Read more at Kitzbitz Art Glass' blog.

"I found Beeswax Misty to be quite soft to work with. No shockiness. The beads in the photo are just plain Beeswax Misty with polka dots in Effetre Turquoise 232. As I expected it to, Beeswax Misty reacts with stringer; you can see the polka dots are slightly darker in the middle. The beads here were photographed outdoors in the morning sunshine."

"Holy moly! Beeswax Misty is a dream. It has incredible opalescence to it. It’s so much fun to see the way the light bounces around inside of it. You get a gorgeous amber light when it is lit from behind, and a beautiful greenish overtone when lit from the front. You almost feel like you can see the whole rainbow inside. I’m in love! It’s also really easy to work with as well, I noticed no problems with cracking, scumming or compatibility. Perfection!"
