"Another colour I adore ... there's nothing else like it!"
Trudi Doherty
"CiM puts Moonlight in with the blues and says that it was a response to requests for a very pale tint. I personally thought it had more of a greenish tint, but it was just a hint of a tint. Anyway - what I get in the Moonlight was lots of tiny bubbles. Thinking maybe I was overheating it - I slowed down and switched to the smaller torch - which did eliminate most of them - but not all."

"Moonlight is a very pale transparent grey with a scum issue."

"Moonlight is a smooth, bubble-free, easy-to-work, Goldilocks just-right kind of glass. It etches well. In its natural shiny state it has a lovely silvery quality to it." Read more at Laura's tumblr.

"Moonlight's lavender undertones nicely magnify the silver reaction of the base bead during encasing. Created a quality, crystalline encasement without distortion or bleeding. No hazing or bubbling, even under intense heat. When pulling into fine stringers, the glass bubbled and created a bit of haziness. In larger diameters, the glass didn't bubble or haze. Overall, a lovely glass for encasing."
