"This is a coral red. It does look slightly darker here under my halogen light than under incandescents or sunlight, but it doesn’t change nearly as much as some reds. It’s pretty uniform and not streaky, which can again be an unwanted issue with many opaque light reds." Read more at Heather's blog.

"This is a test paddle, and not annealed. You can see that the rapid cooling of mashing it did some interesting colour things. . . . I'm not a huge fan of opaque oranges, or 'corals' - but this definitely does some interesting things. If you miss the old Effetre coral glass from a few years back - this might be a good replacement for you." Read more at DragonJools blog.

“Caboose is a warm coral-red. When compared with CiM's Poppy, the pink undertones are readily apparent. The color remained free of gloss striations throughout the bead making process.”
