Safari Ltd Run (511726)<br />An opaque brown.

An opaque brown.




"Safari has more colour in it that the Van Dyke, with a more yellow tone. On working a long time with a lot of heating, cooling and reheating it tended to lose a lot of the variations of colour in it. However when worked quickly, cooled and then spot heated it really sang with a wide variety of colour. The base of the focal and the dots are in Safari and it was reheated and shaped a lot. However the spacer beads were just simply made, cooled and spot heated and you can see the colours pop completely! Overall, Safari is a great colour that is easy to work with." – Claire Morris

"It looks fantastic etched- bringing out the different shades."

"Safari had a yellow core in the rod which I hoped would yield some interesting variations in colour and I wasn't disappointed. It behaved well with no spitting; it seems the longer it is worked the paler it becomes. It is a good base for Ekho."

"It's a pretty brown that gives several shades within the same bead ranging from french mustard to warm chocolate brown. The darkest areas show where I have formed facets by pressing the hot glass with a graphite paddle." Read more at Kitzbitz Art Glass' blog.

"Introduce the molten glass to a cold tool or bead roller and a rich honey-blonde color blooms on the surface."
