"Cornsilk is a very pretty cream opal colour with a gorgeous putrescent lustre. It is very well behaved in the flame, melts easily and on the slightly stiffer side to work with." Read more at Kitzbitz Art Glass' blog. – Jolene Wolfe

Messy Tester's Feedback

  • Cornsilk was engineered in response to requests for a soft light yellow. It is a unique addition to the 104 glass lampworking palette.
I can definitely say that Cornsilk is unique to the 104 palette. – Gloria Sevey

"Cornsilk is a soft opalescent yellow that stays a beautiful translucent colour no matter how you abuse it in the flame. I found two of my three rods of Cornsilk to be a little bit shocky, and I did get some bubbling as I was working it, but in the long spaces between those issues, this colour was pleasant to work with, smooth, and buttery. In case you're wondering, Effetre Yellow Opalino and this colour are not really anything alike. Yellow Opalino is much less reactive with silver, much more yellow in colour and tends to opacify."

"Cornsilk is not reactive to silver so the beads with 99% fine silver wire really glow with it's soft yellow hues." Read more at Darlene's blog.

"I really like this color as it is not reactive to silver so it can be used with layers of silver glass or wire without that yucky brown reaction. I really like this color for its buttery look and inner glow." Read more at Darlene's blog.

"I love this colour, which is a uniform opalino beige. It is less streaky than Reichenbach's mystic beige or pearl beige, and has a nice amount of translucency. Again, it does not seem to strike lighter or more opaque when worked for longer." Read more at Heather's blog.

"It goes deep yellow when heated, giving you the initial impression that it might strike, but cools right back to the original rod colour." Read more at DragonJools blog.

"An opalescent cream / pale yellow rod, the nearest I have is Reichenbach Pearl Beige. It melted well, a little shocky half way down the rod. I made two spacers, no scumming or bubbles, as a base for stormed Ekho it gave some soft pinks and yellow. I did some plunged dots on a base of Poseidon but due to its opalescent nature the colour contrast wasn't good. Grape Ape splits nicely in the swirl bead and Mermaid and Grumpy Bear react too."

"A pretty semi translucent glass with soft yellow tones. Melted beautifully in a moderate flame with no issues. What you see in the rod is what you get in a bead. I made plain beads and some with a frit decoration .. the frit melted in without any fussy reactions ... perfect. It reminds me a little of Reichenbach's Pearl Beige but without the pearlescent effect."
