"Here you can see how Absinthe looks when worked for longer and struck multiple times. This nugget is half and half Absinthe and Peace with a band of dilute goldstone stringer around its middle. It has fully opacified and is a delicious pale pastel opal green." Read more at Jo's Kitzbitz Art Glass blog. – Jolene Wolfe

Messy Tester's Feedback

  • Special thanks to Heather Kelly for providing the photo in this section.
"Absinthe looks like Peacock Green but has to be worked much longer. Peacock Green is self striking for me, but Absinthe won't work unless it's struck several times." – Gloria Sevey

“Absinthe is an opal/translucent and it appears it takes a bit of effort to make it do that. It has the slightest hint of mistiness in the spacers I made. . . . It either doesn’t etch at all, or needs a lot longer in the etching liquid.” Read more at Heather’s blog.

"The glass is a stunner. I love it. . .  This is one of CiM's 'moonstone' glasses which means that when used for anything more than about a 10mm plain round, it'll start to develop milky, translucent wisps." Read more at Laura's blog.

"Of the three smaller beads, the one on the left is unstruck. The second one is struck once and the third multiple times."
