"Lemongrass is a translucent pale yellow. The glass is quite soft to work with but it’s very well-behaved. The silver core bead is a base of Lemongrass decorated with scrolls in CiM Monarch. The stringer worked well on the Lemongrass base." Read more at Laura's blog. – Laura Sparling

Messy Tester's Feedback

  • Lemongrass is a yellow milky opal that stays translucent after annealing; its misty opal counterpart is Summer Haze. We melted Summer Haze/Lemongrass in response to artist requests for non lemon yellow opals.
  • Special thanks to Claudia Eidenbenz for providing the photo in this section.

Claudia Eidenbenz’s "Vetrothek" (glass library) is a great resource for color comparisons.

"My first beads with Lemongrass came out of the kiln significantly darker than the rod which surprised me. There’s clearly a range of tones that this glass can offer depending on exact heating conditions. I found Summer Haze to be slightly more transparent than Lemongrass and on the darker side colour wise, but I suspect this is affected by exact heating conditions and my hunch is that a range of colour tones could be achieved here too. Both are very easy to work with, I think they will make lovely base colours."

"Lemongrass is an opal glass with a slight yellow hue. Candlelight is a transparent that at first glance appears clear but has just a tint of yellow to it. Both of these colors melted very smoothly and had no shocking or bubbling. As with other opals, the glass is somewhat stiffer than your typical transparents but it makes shaping a dream! The beads I tested had the colors laid side by side and were not encased. The Lemongrass fades into the Candlelight for a really nice effect. For those who shy away from the colors that seem un-encaseable, I challenge you to use them in different ways so that you can learn how the glass can work for you. Overall Lemongrass is a color I would love to see permanently in the CiM line!"

"Lemongrass decorated with mixed frit of hot colors. This glass melted smoothly with no issues. Spacers are solid Lemongrass which maintained its translucency in each bead." Read more at Darlene's blog.

"Lemongrass is a unique, gorgeous, translucent, pale yellow opal that behaves itself very well in the flame."

"I did have a couple odd reactions with a few of the new colors- apparently they didn't like the 1050 garage temp of my kiln and the color went whackadoodle!"

"This is a beautiful translucent opal with happy yellow hues, not so different from Cornsilk. I sure do love this type of glass as they are a great base for frits [I've used Val Cox's Cherry Blossom] and they have a soft glow that makes them stand apart!"

"This is Summer Haze and Lemongrass. Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous. A dream to melt, no fussiness or shocking, fabulous for sculpture because it doesn’t mind being heated and reheated. Summer Haze is a misty opal and is slightly more translucent than Lemongrass. No weird reactions to pink, which is nice."

"Summer Haze and Lemongrass are very needed! Thank you!"

"Such pretty glass that I have just made plain beads with them both. The light catches them both beautifully. Colours I've not seen before in 104. CiM has spoilt us again! Both of these melted just fine with no pre-heating."
