A transparent gray.




"Mockingbird is more grey than CiM Slate; I’d say that Mockingbird is a blue-grey and Slate is a grey-blue. These photos were taken under a daylight lamp." Read more at Laura's tumblr. – Laura Sparling

Messy Tester's Feedback

  • Mockingbird was melted because we have frequent requests for a transparent gray that tends toward blue.
  • Mockingbird is a color shifter.
Mockingbird is a gray under bright sunlight, but in soft light it has a blue hue. – Heather Sellers

"Mockingbird is a lovely grey that reminds me a lot of CiM Twilight, but slightly on the bluer side and just a hair lighter. There aren't a lot of cooler greys in the 104 palette, so this is a nice addition. The rods look a little more blue than what the glass actually comes out as after being annealed. CiM also reports that Mockingbird is a color shifter, but the difference under fluorescent lights vs. daylight bulbs is very, very slight." Read more at Kandice's blog.

"All of these colours were easy to use, they were well behaved, not shocking unduly or scumming or boiling. All of them stay the same color nicely - although the Dark Steel Grey and the Mockingbird can get quite dark when used thick. It's really striking how different grey can be."

"Starting on a base of Mockingbird, a transparent gray on which Double Helix Ekho silver glass frit was sprinkled and reduced. Mockingbird is a great base for silver glass and assists in coaxing out metallic hues of blue, pink, silver and gold." Read more at Darlene's blog.

"It's grey. It's hard for me to get excited about grey. Other tester's report that it colour shifts, becoming bluer in some lights. Whatever. It's a nice, well-behaved transparent grey." Read more at DragonJools blog.
