Buttermilk Ltd Run (511315)<br />An opaque pale yellow.

An opaque pale yellow.




"Buttermilk is a lovely neutral color. The bead on the left has a small wrap of Double Helix Terra which was reduced just a bit. The Terra didn’t react with the base color except to fume it just a tad. The middle bead was marvered with a cold tool and the color changed to a very pale, slightly yellowish ivory. The bead on the right is Buttermilk all on its own." – Gloria Sevey

"Buttermilk is a very pale, opaque yellow. It strikes in the flame, blushing a little more yellow as you work it, but doesn't darken significantly. The consistency of it is beautiful, and my rods of Buttermilk were not shocky. Like Bone, this colour fills a gap in my palette that has been open since Vetrofond stopped making us nice pale neutrals. . . . On the whole, this colour is not very reactive and I found it to be quite stable." Read more at Melanie's blog.

"Bone and Buttermilk look quite similar. These colours were dipped into a frit blend containing Blue Chalcedony [note that these were not in the flame long, and did not go in the kiln]."

"I made beads with bands of Dark Multicolour, silvered ivory and Rubino. Neither Bone nor Buttermilk show any sign of reaction ... which I love! But what is more noticeable in the beads is that the Buttermilk has struck to a pale primrose yellow."
Trudi Doherty
"Buttermilk is a warm opaque cream. The glass is as smooth as its name through the beadroller, yet holds crisp detail nicely. When compared with Bone, Buttermilk is a warm, creamy ivory. When paired with silver reactive glass, Buttermilk doesn’t develop the strong line of demarcation unlike Effetre Light Ivory." Read more at Heather's blog.
