Beeswax Milky Ltd Run (511329)<br />A milky opal yellow.

A milky opal yellow.




"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. – Jolene Wolfe

"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."

"Beeswax Milky is a lovely translucent pale yellow. Not shocky and no issues with bubbling or scumming. Played nicely with dichroic and silver glass on the surface of the bead."
Terri Herron
"The milky version of Beeswax reminds me of the lemon part of a lemon meringue pie. This glass isn’t as soft as its misty partner but it reacts with stringer way more. These beads are plain Beeswax Milky with polka dots in Effetre White 204. I had to go really careful and slow melting the dots down flat otherwise they distorted quite badly. No shocking, no scumming. The Beeswax Milky beads were photographed indoors in natural daylight." Read more at Laura's blog.

"Beeswax Milky is a beautiful milky opal that shows hints of CiM Ghee but for me the end result was more of a sunshine pale lemon yellow that radiates from within, such a cheery and beautiful colour. I preheated this rod to avoid any shockiness. Melts like butter and beautiful to work. Repeated heating and cooling strengthened the colour and milkiness that worked well with other colours from both other brands of glass. No bubbling or any issues when working the glass in the flame and when heating and cooling on repeat. Melts like a dream."
