  • Painted Hills was melted in response to requests for a pale yellow.
Painted Hills is really neat in that it works like a really pale version of Canyon de Chelly. – Joy Munshower

"You may have noticed that Stone Ground is a bit thin on the ground right now at the distributors, and you might be wondering what is your best bet as an alternate, and how they stack up. In which case, you might want to have a look at CiM Painted Hills. On the face of it, Painted Hills appears to be much too light to function as an equivalent, but it may actually be closer to Opal Yellow than you think. Here is the bead, still hot, before mashing. From the left, Opal Yellow, Stone Ground, Painted Hills. The dots are Double Helix Aurae." Read more at DragonJools blog.

"Here we have, left to right, self coloured Painted Hills, actual Effetre ivory, with turquoise dots, and Painted Hills, with the same turquoise dots. Look ma - no reactive line around the dots! Is this a substitute for effetre Ivory. Possibly not. Are my results anomalous? Maybe. But it bears further investigation. This might be the non-reactive-ivory you have been looking for."

"Painted Hills is a warm vanilla color. Initially, the glass is milky white when heated, but the soft golden yellow tone begins to bloom as the glass cools. A beautiful addition to the CiM family." Read more at Heather's blog.

"Painted Hills is an opaque soft yellow that gives a bloom of other shades depending on how you cool and heat the glass while working it. It is similar to opal yellow so I decided to see how it would mix with fine silver wire. As you can see from the photo, it turned the silver wire to a warm golden glow with unique striated effects in each bead." Read more at Darlene's blog.

"Painted Hills is very much like the old Effetre Opal Yellow which is fantastic news. I found that it can take on a pale salmon pink hue in places, just like the bygone Opal Yellow used to. Most of all it has similar Opal Yellow-style spread-inducing properties. . . . Painted Hills washes out to white as you’re using it but will bloom yellow as you reheat and work on your bead. I found that it fades to a soft cream towards the bead holes. The yellow continues to develop during the kiln annealing process." Read more at Laura's tumblr.

"Painted Hills is an interesting light creamy yellow that really reminds me of the lighter batches of Effetre's famous Opal Yellow. . . . When used as a base, you can get blushing creams and yellows with a hint of rosy ivory at times. The longer you work it, the more color you can get." Read more at Kandice's blog.

"Painted Hills is a winner in my book. It showed some pink areas around the mandrel. It’s hard to find soft yellows that behave and it did."

"Painted Hills is decorated with Emperor over Peace. Painted Hills is a pretty pale faun colour which tends towards grey. It can give subtle pretty striations between melted in wraps." Read more at Kitzbitz Art Glass' blog.
