Avalon Misty Ltd Run (5114002)<br />A misty opal pale green.

A misty opal pale green.




"Avalon Misty makes my heart sing. Quite similar to Ice Mint, this is such a gorgeous opal ocean green, like the seas of the Maldives. Semi translucent with a beautiful inner glow that radiates throughout. I preheated this rod, as I believe it would be quite shocky otherwise. Once pre warmed it melted like butter. You can make this as subtle or more dense by layering, such a pretty colour. A must have for all opal sea green lovers. I cannot find anything to dislike. I adore this colour." – Juliette Mullett

"I have pictured Avalon with Lady of the Lake and Sea Glass as these were the closest colours. It is lighter than these two. A lovely soft misty/milky green."
Suzy Hannabuss
"More delightful misty & milky colours. Avalon is a glorious pale shade of green that lends towards a blue ice tone. The colour builds up noticeably more in the milky version, while the misty has a more ethereal effect. Both gorgeous! I am imagining these etched to look like seaglass. Now I need to go and play some more!"

"Like most of the other CiM opals Avalon Misty does that ‘batik’ effect thing with stringer. This bead is pure Avalon Misty with scrolls in Effetre Lavender Blue 247. You can see the yellowish flash that the CiM misty opals have when the sunlight shines through them. Avalon Misty is a very pretty glass that was fuss-free to work with." Read more at Laura's blog.

"Avalon Misty is a very pale minty green. When layered over an opaque middle green, it is a lovely bright pale green! Not shocky and no issues with bubbling or scumming. Played nicely with dichroic and silver glass on surface."
Terri Herron
"I think that Creation is Messy's move to naming the misty and milky opals with the name of the variant, instead of a new name is smart. The less I have to remember, the better. This is Avalon Misty, and I have Avalon Milky yet to test. But I don't want to get them mixed up in the kiln, so that's for another day." Read more at DragonJools blog.
