Larger beads are a base of Koala, encased in Effetre steel grey and decorated with Peace polka dots. Smaller ones are plain Koala.

"Koala is a lovely true medium neutral grey - not too blue and not too brown. It's lighter and cooler than Adamantium. In rod form, it actually does have a bluish cast, but that goes away when melted, for the most part. As a plain spacer, it retains much of its shade, but when encased in clear Koala lightens up quite a bit, as you can see here with the spacers I made." Read more at Kandice's blog.

"Koala melted well in a moderate flame with no issues. You can see that the end of the rod has rings of colour ... suggesting it may be a striker, but the beads I made all came out a consistent colour [maybe something to bear in mind if you work it longer in the flame or even the soak time in the kiln perhaps?]. It's a beautiful soft grey that sits between Effetre 268 and 248."

"This dark slate gray flows with ease and is a joy to sculpt. When introduced to enamels, the glass did not bubble or matte like other grays, but remained clean and true to the original color."
