Messy Tester's Feedback

  • Peacock Green does not etch in the same way as other 104 colors. Celia Friedman's tumble etching recipe for Peacock Green:
"Put your beads, a drop of dishwashing soap, a handful of small glass beads, and a spoonful of silicon carbide grit in a lapidary canister, add enough water to cover that plus a bit more, and tumble for 2-3 hours.
 
Time and grit rating will determine the finished product. 1000 grit for two hours gives a smooth, subtle frost with a pearly gloss coming through, while 800 or 600 will give rougher results.    
 
The extra beads should be small, and many sources suggest 3-4 mm, but if you are tumbling large-hole beads those will get stuck in them, so I use mostly 6 mm.    
 
Tumbling doesn't texture glass inside grooves or depressions, so unless you like the artistic effect of a partially etched bead, it works best with evenly rounded or perfectly flat beads. Because dimpled hole ends don't etch, I make my tumbling beads with flat ends and dremel down the edges later.    
 
NOTE: once you put silicon grit in a canister you can never, ever use it, or anything you put in it, for polishing metal." – Celia Friedman

"Peacock Green doesn’t etch. I thought it provided a nice textural contrast to the 'sea glass' finish of the other beads."

“Peacock Green does not etch like other 104 colors. Here it was put in etching solution for 20 minutes. You can see the slight variation of the etched bead looking a bit more dull, but not really what I would call a proper etching.”

"I made a bead in every green shade of CiM I own, and also in similar Effetre shades." See more comparison beads including etched versions at Lush Blogs.

"I noticed it's a spreader. The pic on the left shows white dots on a Peacock base, the white dots have been swallowed up by the Peacock and have a little dot in the middle -  see how the white dots on the Kryptonite bead on the right are unaffected." Read more at Lush blogs.

"This is where Peacock Green shines, in a larger bead - where the colour becomes more intense, but you get to see through the glass as well." Read more at DragonJools blog.

"I really like to use these colors [Cirrus, Peacock Green, & Halong Bay] as encasements over intense dichroic scrap beads." Read more at the Frantz Art Glass blog.
