"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. – Dwyn Tomlinson

"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."

"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."
Sandy Kelly
"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."
Trudi Doherty
"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.
