Indian Summer Ltd Run (511718)<br />A transparent brown.

A transparent brown.




"I have to tell you, Indian Summer is one of the easiest transparents I have ever worked with. It has a wonderful clarity to it, and has no scumming or bubbling issues. It seems to be the perfect consistency, and is really easy to strike. And as you can see from the pulled petal sample, it would be wonderful for making leaves! I adore this color."

Messy Tester's Feedback

  • Indian Summer is our chemist's experiment in mixing Crocus and Cirrus. Yes, Crocus is an opal purple and Cirrus is a milk white moonstone. He can't explain it either.
  • Special thanks to Jolene Wolfe for providing the photo in this section.

"I really like Indian Summer as it is a rich transparent that strikes into a rich hue and is smooth to swirl and marvers without surface pitting. This barrel shows the richness of Indian Summer on the ends. . . .The two spacers at the back are Indian Summer as well." Read more at Darlene's blog.

"Indian Summer is an interesting one – it’s a striking amber. . . . Indian Summer didn’t etch particularly consistently – the very dark bead appeared to etch more." See Heather's tests with Indian Summer and silver glass on her blog.

"Indian Summer is a striking glass. But don’t let that stop you trying or buying it. It’s easy to get gorgeous results with it without even really trying. The glass is brown with an orange-pinkish-red about it. Perfect autumnal colour. Not shocky, smooth to work with, lovely consistency for encasing with. Only downside is that it doesn’t etch very well." Read more at Laura's tumblr.

"In rod form Indian Summer looks quite a bit lighter, maybe it strikes a little in the kiln as I didn't notice any signs of the glass darkening up [striking] in the flame and was surprised just how dark my test beads looked when they came out of the kiln the next day."
