“The ‘Streamer’ colors like Carnival make playful, fun beads. I made a simple spacer bead. I also made a second bead with a base of Effetre Super Clear. The left side was then encased in Effetre white to represent the opaque, the middle in CiM Marshmallow to represent the translucent, and finally the right remained clear to represent the transparent. Carnival was then wound onto this bead. This gives the opportunity to see encasement in a variety of common beadmaking situations.” – Kim Fields

"Orange and yellow ribbons are combined with a light blue transparent glass. As with all of the transparent based streamers, I like it best over another opaque glass. Shown here over white and as streamers."

"Carnival on Peace, applied hot and pulled. The bead on the right is Carnival by itself in just two wraps—slow and thick."

"I found Carnival an unusual glass to work with because it contains tiny stripes of colors that are veiled by a light blue exterior. I felt like the light blue overshadowed the stripes and created a muddied effect. I tried it over white as you will see in the group shot and it looked a bit like Stonewashed or Streaky denim. When encased with clear, it became almost non-existent. Pale blue dichro on the surface created a magical look. It was easy to work with as it was not shocky poppy- that was impressive to me. I think this might be a good glass to use when trying to re-create the look of ancient Roman glass."

"The hearts here were made with a core of Effetre dark teal encased with Carnival streamer glass." Read more at Kitzbitz Art Glass' blog.

"The hollow focal bead and small barrel beads were capped on each end with Double Helix Aurae silver glass. Each bead was reduced to bring out the metallic shine. The spacer beads are pure Carnival glass. Carnival is elegant in my opinion and would be would be beautiful on a simple silver chain." Read more at Darlene's blog.

"The base glass is a cross between grey and medium blue, almost antique looking. I preheated this rod to avoid any shockiness. This glass wasn’t stiff but didn’t melt like butter - more of something in-between these two. I worked these on fairly small beads [15mm] and you can see the streamers inside. Carnival can produce both a subtle or striking look depending on the size of the beads and how the randomness of the colour is applied and worked. Either way on small or large beads this colour will either give you a subtle look [smaller beads] or more of a celebration style in bigger beads with layers of glass built up. I do feel that the effect of this glass would be more suited to a larger bead that allows for many layers of glass with a carefree/freehand design to really showcase the streamers inside. Worked great with silver glass. No bubbling or any issues when working the glass in the flame and when heating and cooling on repeat."
