“Like the colour of those herbal candies. So close to Brown Eyed Girl. Crystal clear and smooth melting. Lovely autumn shade. Beads left to right: Maple, Horehound, Effetre light Topaz, Brown Eyed Girl, Burnt Sugar, and Indian Summer.”

Learn how to pull stringers with Horehound and goldstone by watching Maria's YouTube. In the video, Maria also shows a comparison of the Horehound encased goldstone to other encasings, like Brown Eyed Girl and Lingonberry.

"What a beautiful combination these three colours make, I used #cimburntsugar as the core, #cimhorehound on the surface and #cimlingonberry on the edges. Love everything about these."

"Horehound is a really nice melt. Here, self wrapped and on Peace."

"Horehound is a beautiful pale transparent brown with hints of pink, works wonderfully with silver glass. No issues at all, a pleasure to melt!"
Juliette Mullett
"A pale, true neutral brown. A paler version of Brown Eyed Girl. A great addition to the transparent, neutral CiM palette. 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. Horehound was then wound onto this bead. This gives the opportunity to see encasement in a variety of common beadmaking situations."

"Horehound is a nice pale yellowish brown. It works nicely with silvered ivory stringer. It's easy to work with. No shockiness, boiling or scumming."
Heather Johnson
"Horehound is a light transparent brown that really sings with silver glass! This set of beads combined Horehound with Double Helix Helios streamers reduced to glorious gold metallic shine. The color stayed true with no reaction to the silver." Read more at Darlene's blog.

"Horehound is a beautiful lighter brown which will be a great addition."
Suzy Hannabuss
"Horehound is a very pretty light honey shade that looks even prettier under encasement. 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
"Horehound is a transparent tan in my opinion with a yellow undertone. Not shocky and no issues with bubbling or scumming. Played nicely with dichroic."
Terri Herron
"Horehound is quite a light shade with yellow undertones."
