Messy Tester's Feedback

  • Pachyderm was melted in response to requests for a neutral that would work well with silver and reactive colors.
  • Special thanks to Jolene Wolfe & Trudi Doherty for providing the photos in this section.

"As a rod, this glass looks like a medium grey. When melted it lightens and warms up into a sort of fawn grey - not completely brown and not completely grey . . . Pachyderm does tend to strike softly as you work it, warming up a little more the longer it's worked. They grey spots seem to disappear after a short while, leaving it a light tan."

"Pachyderm is a warm brown toned grey which has lots of striations and will strike to even warmer tones in the flame. . . . This bead is a much better example of the colour variation you can see within Pachyderm." Read more at Kitzbitz Art Glass' blog.

"This elephant inspired color is a bit deceiving in rod form. Once flameworked, the glass goes from tones of gray to beige which creates interest, depth, and contrast in the final piece. "
