"Consuelo Misty and Milky. The long body fish is the Misty, the short one is the Milky. It might be a bit more intensely colored, hard to say. Gorgeous color."
Dwyn Tomlinson
"Consuelo Milky is beautiful. I used it in this jellyfish bead and I am pleased with this stable color. Easy to work with, and retains this smooth translucent color."

"Turquoise colour so beautiful and easy to work with. This tropical shade is slightly more opaque than Consuelo Misty but really close in opacity. Love this calming shade."
Jean Daniels
"I LOVE this color! Consuelo Milky is a vibrant fun teal blue that reminds me of the Caribbean Sea. Over a white core, not shocky or bubbly to work with, takes enamel very well. End result somehow has an inner glow that I haven't seen with the other blue opalinos. I will definitely be adding this color to my glass stash!"
Tammy Mercier
"Consuelo is such a deep and velvety teal blue! I had a hard time with my Sony camera which seemed to want to make it too blue and not deep enough for some reason. This one comes in both a milky and a misty version and they are both gorgeous. I noticed very little difference between the two. My working notes: minimally shocky, nice melting, no scum, easy to sculpt.”
Lori Peterson
"The rich blue green hues of Consuelo just call to me to pair with Double Helix silver glass. These beads show the potential to use DH Melia silver glass under DH Zephyr encasement as well as for raised decoration." See more at Darlene's blog.

"This is Consuelo Milky with Double Helix Aurae dots. The dots reacted and left the Consuelo base with a random mottled pattern."
Bianca Gruber
"Consuelo Milky is a gorgeous blue green opal! The Milky version is a lovely shade of teal that glows from within. It was a little stiff to melt but not shocky even from cold. I found it too easy to crack if the bead cooled too much so keep it close to the flame! It’s a shade I don’t have so going on the list!"

“I made a sculptural bird bead with Consuelo Milky. Nice teal color and it was easy to work with. I began with a clear ‘core’ body and then encased in Consuelo Milky. This gives an opportunity to see encasement with the color. The head, wings and tail were added straight from the rod. I used Reichenbach Deep Black for the base of the beak followed by Effetre Pastel Yellow. The eyes were also Reichenbach Deep Black.”
Kim Fields
"This little trio of hollow beads is yummy! We have left to right: Consuelo Milky, Pond Slime Milky, and Honeydew Milky! I love them all, but the Honeydew is callin’ my naaame!! Prior to today I had kiln warmed all the glass prior to working it . . . this time, nope . . . didn’t warm it a bit and all three colors did fantastic! No bubbling, scumming or flying bits of glass! All of these milky glasses have a glow from within, a translucence that is captivating!"
Angela Dose
"I just love these opal colours!! They blend so well with transparents, giving a soft transition rather than a harsh one that you'd get with an opaque. Having a fantastic range has opened up a whole range of possibilities for my patchwork hearts. Notice how the look changes when it's partly layered over clear to when it's solid . . . I love that ombre effect. Consuelo is a beautiful soft, yet rich teal opal. One that I look forward to working with more."
