Tangerine Ltd Run (511208)<br />A transparent orange.

A transparent orange.




"Tangerine is orange, maybe even yellower in nature than in the picture, but it is so difficult to get the color. In general, the colors of translucent red, yellow, and orange have to be struck so that the glass is allowed to cool until the glow of the glass is extinguished and the surface is reheated so that it does not melt again. These beads had to be cooled and reheated many times, so that it took quite a while to make them. One bead is still lighter on the other edge." Read more at Maikki's blog. – Maija-Leena Autio

"Here you can see in the bead on the right that I had some trouble striking this glass. The bead on the right is reduced, so either I didn't strike the glass properly before reducing it, or striking it in the reduction flame unstruck the colour. It's sort of hard to say without conducting some more tests to be sure." Read more at Melanie's blog.

"Tangerine is a lovely shade of glass, this trio of nugget beads have pretty wisps and striations and colour variation. I found it nigh impossible to strike Tangerine to a consistent single shade but the ethereal look of these nugget beads is just delightful." Read more at Jo's Kitzbitz Art Glass blog.

"The rods in my sample pack were inconsistent in look with some rods being completely transparent while other rods took on the classic filagrana style appearance with an opaque seam of colour running through the centre."
