"Diaphanous Misty is an ivory misty opal that melts smoothly with no shockiness. I have been told that this glass was related to a previous CiM transparent glass called Peachy Keen- I unfortunately did not have any left in my CiM stash, so I picked up a rod of CiM Nectar and used it for this set of beads. The round beads are a 50/50 of Nectar and Diaphanous Misty with a sprinkling of Double Helix Aurae fine frit. Each bead was wrapped with 99% fine silver wire and reduced to bring out the metallic glitter of the silver glass. Four round beads of Diaphanous Misty were coated in fine frit and reduced. Plain spacers of the base glass complete the set." Read more at Darlene's blog.

"I quite like this color! Layered over a white core, Diaphanous Misty has an ever so slight peachy pink tone to it. I'm inspired to use it on its own. The rat is created with enamels directly on it - no white base. Like most CiM opalinos I've tested, this batch is not shocky at all!"
Tammy Mercier
"Summer in a bead! This was made with Diaphanous Misty and this color did just what I hoped! It helps to mute bolder colors and create lovely shades of sherbet pastels. For those that know me, I LOVE color layering and blending and colors like this make that possible!"

"Like a soft translucent veil. Started off with an egg white when heated but then turned out to be a beautiful soft rough white quartz colour. Melt is so smooth."
Jean Daniels
"This is a pretty transparent glass with a hint of peachy warmth when compared to CiM London Fog. This glass is an attempt at a misty and milky version of Peachy Keen. Very nice glass and a change from existing cooler transparents. A dream to melt with no shockiness. The bead shown is a hollow bead and you can see it still holds its peachiness against the CIM Peace dots."

"Described by CiM as misty & milky opal ivories, both of these have warm peachy undertones and a moonstone glow about them. I can't wait to see what everyone creates with these colours! While both melted with no issues, I did find that the milky was noticeably softer than misty."

“I made a sculptural bird bead with Diaphanous Misty. Loved this color and easy to work with. Much warmer tone than the other ‘moonstone whites.’ I began with a clear ‘core’ body and then encased in Diaphanous Misty. 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.”

"The Glycerin hearts are the pair at the top that look the most opaque [let the least light pass through]. Moving around in a clockwise direction, the next two hearts are Diaphanous Milky and the last two hearts are Diaphanous Misty [white dots]. Aside from looking obviously more opaque, Glycerin has a much cooler icy looking tone. Diaphanous looks positively toasty in comparison!" See more at Kitzbitz Art Glass' blog.

"The hearts here are made with Diaphanous. The beads on the left are Diaphanous Misty decorated with white dots. The heart pair on the right are Diaphanous Milky decorated with Reichenbach black stringer and dots." See more at Kitzbitz Art Glass' blog.

"The color change with this glass was unexpected. I can only guess that it was due to a chemical reaction with the silvered ivory. Despite that, I actually really like the color it turned out to be. When layered over the silvered ivory core it changed to a very pale, warm gold color with just a hint of opacity. The two glasses played well together and I didn't get any cracking. I'd buy just because I like the color I did get with it . . . a nice 'happy accident.'"
