Messy Color™ Brown Eyed Girl

Brown Eyed Girl (511734)<br />A transparent brown.

A transparent brown.




"Horehound is a very pretty light honey shade that looks even prettier under encasement. Burnt Sugar is a golden shade of transparent brown with a slight orange tone to it which makes me think of Topaz. Brown Eyed Girl is the darkest of the 3 new colours and more of a true brown rather than tones of amber or topaz. All 3 of these transparent colours were wonderfully well behaved in the flame, no boiling or micro bubbles at all." Read more at Kitzbitz Art Glass' blog. – Jolene Wolfe

"As soon as I saw this colour I mistook it for Maple. I love Maple and as Maple has been unavailable I was happy to see a replacement. I put Brown Eyed Girl against Maple and honestly could not see a difference. Like Maple it melts beautifully and holds its colour. Absolutely beautiful in my opinion and a winner without a doubt."

"Brown Eyed Girl is a truly transparent brown in my opinion. Not shocky and no issues with bubbling or scumming. Played nicely with dichroic and silver glass on the surface of the bead."

"Two transparent browns, yet very different. Burnt Sugar [left] is a peachy, warm brown. Brown Eyed Girl [right] is a yellowish, cool brown. Both are super interesting, nice colours." Read more at DragonJools blog.

"Brown Eyed Girl is a much darker shade, when I first glanced at the rod I thought it may be similar to Maple ... so I did compare the two. Maple has definite khaki undertones, while BEG has warmer tones with a touch of red."
