"What I can say for sure is that sometimes Flax struck to bright yellow on me, and sometimes it did not. In the beads where it did, the common factor is that I pressed them with a cool tool. I am guessing that it is repeated, dramatic heating and cooling that will move it away from its beautiful, pale, champagne colour into a more 'electric yellow' hue range. So, if you want to keep it pale, keep it cool!" Read more at Melanie's blog.

“Flax - super-reactive with silver. . . .You can see that the Flax has reacted with the silver to make a beautiful, rich root beer / topaz colour. The monster air bubble stayed silver so the reaction only happens where the flax touches the silver.” Read more at DragonJools blog.

"The focal and one of the sets of pairs are etched Flax. The yellow colour is much more apparent when etched and puts me in mind of lemon flavour boiled sweeties." Read more at Kitzbitz Art Glass' blog.

"A few years back I bought an odd lot of Vetrofond amber. It was a really pale champagne colour . . . the few bead sets I made with that glass were really popular. Flax is almost identical to that Vetrofond odd lot. Flax is a very pale yellow; think white wine or champagne. Unlike champers, the glass is bubble free and it's a superb consistency. It etches like a dream too." Read more at Laura's blog.
