"They are all such beautiful colours. I have to say I really love the misty opals the best. They have a lovely glimmer inside. So my preference would be Sea Glass, Nymph and Ice Mint but how is one to decide? They are all so beautiful!" – Suzy Hannabuss

Messy Tester's Feedback

"CiM are really outdoing themselves with their misty and milky opals at the moment! They are all gorgeous! Sea Glass is a very pale and delicate misty opal - it definitely lives up to its name. Nymph is another misty opal which is a gorgeous shade of light turquoise and Ice Mint is a more translucent opal which again, is a yummy shade of turquoise. I wouldn't normally photograph beads in direct sunlight but the way the light goes through these needs to be seen to be believed, it's really magical. I've also included Sea Foam which is distinctly greener and much more of an opaque opal."

"In testing, I found no pitting or boiling and hardly any issues with shockiness. I experienced the teeniest amount of the very tip of Peacock Feather popping off but warming it in the back of the flame seemed to do the trick and subsequent meltings seemed to be fine. Once again my pleasant surprise that the silver wire I use .999 does not seem to effect these glasses and gives that lovely contrast and elegance with no reactions. These glasses are also part of the pairing system of Misty Opals and what I call Milky Opals. They have the same base batch but then one is tweaked to either remain more translucent while the other keeps more opacity. Overall these colors all offer us a beautiful gradient color palette in which to create with! Whoever said you can have too much of one color was clearly not an artist!"

"Ice Mint is a beautiful misty green with a tinge of blue that catches the light beautifully."

"These shells are absolutely tiny, no more than 13mm high and 6mm thick. From left to right there is: tumble etched Ice Mint, glossy Ice Mint [misty], tumble etched Toothpaste, glossy Toothpaste [translucent]. It is not easy to tell the two colours apart once they have been tumble etched." Read more at Kitzbitz Art Glass' blog.

"Ice Mint is the misty opal version of Toothpaste. Another well-behaved minty blue-green which has that opalescent glow when the sun shines through it." Read more at Laura's blog.

"Green is my favourite colour, and minty greens are on the top of my favourite greens so imagine my joy when I saw these in the tester pack! Toothpaste is a gorgeous mint green that keeps its translucent properties even after being annealed! Ice Mint is the misty opal equivalent and is such a gorgeous glass, more translucent than Toothpaste. Both melted well, with no issues."

"Be still my beating heart! In this new batch of colours, there are some beautiful fresh minty greens. They kinda go in pairs as CiM has made some misty opals and coordinating opals that stay translucent. I've pictured them all together so that you can easily compare them!"
