"To my eye Musk looks like a light version of Mojito so I decided to use them both side by side in the same set. This first set of beads has been made with thick cores of Musk [round beads] and thin cores of Mojito [tumble etched donuts]. The rounds and donuts came out of the kiln looking much closer in hue than they do in rod form due to the relative thickness of the cores and thickness of the encasing layer on top."

"A birdie made with Musk, rolled in iris orange. I loved the birdie before I tried to etch it. My normal etch made a mess of things as Musk does not like etching. I thought I had ruined it. But I have another kind of etch, an alkaline glass etch that works slower, that I thought I would try. Musk is not easy to etch,  but as you can see, it is lovely when it is."

"Musk has an odd consistency. It moves in a weird way. Or, to be more precise, it doesn’t move quite like a transparent glass does. I found that it moves more like an opal glass. It’s kind of soft for a transparent and it gets an orange-yellow glow going on when it’s hot, like an opal glass does. It also got the wispy, thin veiny effect that some of the CiM opals get when they’re worked." Read more at Laura's tumblr.

"Musk is a transparent, honey-kissed, mountain dew. The vivid color is very similar to Effetre Kelp 090, but Musk is slightly more intense." Read more at Heather's blog.
