Bone Ltd Run (511826)<br />A pale opaque neutral.

A pale opaque neutral.




"Bone is a grayish ecru. The opaque glass is perfect for Halloween designs and sculptural work. A truly unique addition to the CiM family. When wrapped in fine silver foil, the glass blushes a rusty burnt umber." Read more at Heather's blog. – Heather Sellers

Messy Tester's Feedback

  • We have many requests for a neutral ivory color.
"Here is CiM Bone with Vetrofond Biscotti, Vetrofond Cream, Reichenbach Porcelain, Effetre Wood, and Effetre Ivory. As you can see, it's very similar in colour to Vetrofond Cream." Read more at Melanie's blog. – Melanie Graham

"Bone is a neutral cream color that has ever so slightly darker blushes of off-white color to it. [For color reference, the teeth are made with Effetre dark ivory]. It is very close in color to Buttermilk, although it appears to be a slightly cooler shade. Melts wonderfully, no issues at all with bubbling or boiling."

"Bone is a true neutral. It's not ivory, it has a more brown undertone. Bone is really the perfect description of the color. It is a perfect base for silver glass, and it doesn't fume when reduced which is a property that is very hard to find in glass. I will be buying quite a bit of this to use with my silver glass."

"This bead is Bone on the outer two segments, and Effetre Light Ivory on the middle segment, with dots of Effetre Turquoise, and a dot of the base colour [Bone or Ivory] on top. Certainly - there is little in the way of classic sulfur/copper reaction. However, it is quite difficult to stop this glass from smoking up. . . . Bone will open doors for those looking for a non-reactive neutral cream color, I think, but will challenge a lot of people with its tendency to change colour in a less than fully oxygenated flame. Some folks gonna love it - some gonna hate it. " Read more at DragonJools' blog.

"Bone is a lovely, pale neutral colour. It's reactive, but much less volatile than other Ivories that we currently have available. Bone is paler and cooler than Effetre Ivory, and I think you'll like its reaction profile. Do you miss Vetrofond Ivory and Yellow Ice? Bone isn't the same, but it is Ivory in colour, is not reactive in a muddy, negative way, and is beautiful with silver, which are the three things I miss most about those colours. . . . Since Effetre ivories are fun with silver, I thought I'd try silvered stringer with Bone.  Here's what silvered Bone is like - not as veiny as Effetre Ivory but a very interesting, mottled organic effect."

"Bone is a beautiful, clean neutral. The beads from left to right are Bone, Bone with Quetzal dabs, and Bone with reduced Double Helix Terra."
Gloria Sevey
"Bone reacts with fine silver but seemingly not with glass containing copper such as Effetre light turquoise. Interestingly, when using the silvered Bone stringer to make dots it seems that the organic effects are confined to the surface of the stringer while the centre of the dot remains the original pale creamy shade. This gives a very pleasing dot on dot effect. The last pair of beads were made with a base of Bone decorated with Effetre light turquoise dots. There is no reaction line apparent at all."

"Bone and Buttermilk look quite similar. These colours were dipped into a frit blend containing Blue Chalcedony [note that these were not in the flame long, and did not go in the kiln]."
Trudi Doherty
"I made beads with bands of Dark Multicolour, silvered ivory and Rubino. Neither Bone nor Buttermilk show any sign of reaction ... which I love! Looking very closely at Bone it has very very very slight pink tones."
