"This focal bead was created on a base of Ectoplasm with a dusting of Double Helix's Kronos 2 powdered frit. The bead was then decorated with twisted dots made of a combination of CiM Peppermint Cream, Double Helix's Melia encased with Zephyr. Melia reduced dots complete the bead."

"Ectoplasm is a medium-to-light green semi-opaque colour that is a bit more muted than some of the other new shades of green in this new lineup of CiM colours. It is a pretty shade of green, has interesting reactions with other colours, and is nice with both silver and silver glass." Read more at Melanie's blog.

"Budgie [right] and Ectoplasm [left] are another matching pair, with Budgie being the misty opal [yes] and Ecto being the translucent [also yes.] And good colour match." Read more at DragonJools blog.

"Budgerigar is a misty opal kiwi green while Ectoplasm stays translucent after annealing. To me, the colors were quite different. Ectoplasm looked a bit darker green and had a lovely translucency while Budgerigar was more transparent and looked brighter with a touch more yellow when melted." From Marcy's article in Glass Bead Evolution Volume 7- Issue 2, 2019.

"Ectoplasm is a pretty spring green. It did darken for me in the bead with stringer design on it. I am not sure if that is due to the heating and cooling from the stringer design or if it reacted with the CiM Lapis that is the stringer. It is a lovely color and retains its beauty and even its translucency."
Caroline Davis
"Poison Apple, Wheatgrass, Eclectus Parrot, Mantis, Ectoplasm, and Budgerigar all melted smoothly with no shockiness or bubbles. They bring some beautiful new colors to the 104 palette. I am loving the new translucents and misty opals. These are great and don’t bubble and boil like some of the alabasters and opalinos."
Paula Schertz
"This is an amazing candy color that reminds me of bright green jade. It is about the same opalescence as 511450 Chartreuse, but in a bluer 'apple green' tone. Melts like a dream with no boiling at all."
Renee Wiggins
"Ectoplasm is described as ‘an opal that stays translucent’ and yep, it does just that. It’s a sour yellowy green that looks like it might taste of Haribo Tangfastics. [Do not eat beads!] The glass melted like butter - so smooth and flowy but not overly so. It didn’t bubble and I had no shocking or rod-poppery. Ectoplasm is a lovely springtime green and I think it would look fab with pinks and lavenders. The photograph was taken indoors in natural daylight." Read more at Laura's tumblr.

"Another beautiful opal green that is like an opal apple green, a lovely subtle hue that is fuss free and beautiful to work with."
Juliette Mullett
"Ectoplasm is true to the colorful sci-fi name, the color looks like something slimy born in a mad scientist’s lab. Similar to Budgerigar, this glass will remain opal if worked with a tool and repeatedly heated/cooled. No shocking or bubbling occurred during testing."
