“A beautiful bluish jade. Like Avalon Milky but more diaphanous. Easy to use.”

"Avalon Misty & Milky are soft, minty, pale green, translucent colours. They melt beautifully, with no bubbles or scumming. These glasses are really only different as regards their opacity, so I feel like it makes sense to post about them together. In general, I typically prefer the misty colours to the milky ones because I enjoy the brightness of them, and this was true for me with Avalon as well. . . . Silver Foil under Avalon turns an odd lemon yellow colour." Read more at Melanie's blog.

"Avalon Misty reminds me of the water in the Venetian lagoon, soooo serene! I did experience some shockiness with this glass; it would benefit from a pre-heat before working. Shown here over silver foil."
Janet Evans
"These pairs of fish beads were made with Avalon which is a very pale pastel green opal glass. It is available with two levels of opacity. The set with Fremen [light turquoise] fish is made with Avalon Misty. The pair with Oobleck [bright lime green] fish are made with Avalon Milky. It's easy to see the differing levels of translucence between the two as spacers but less easy to tell them apart as larger beads." Read more at Kitzbitz Art Glass' blog.
Jolene Wolfe
"At first glance, the Misty and Milky colors looked identical. After using them, I found the Milky to be much more intense than the Misty. Both mixes are beautiful. I made a simple spacer bead. I also made a second bead with a base of Effetre Super Clear. The left side was then encased in Effetre white to represent the opaque, the middle in CiM Marshmallow to represent the translucent, and finally the right remained clear to represent the transparent. Avalon Misty was then wound onto this bead. This gives the opportunity to see encasement in a variety of common beadmaking situations.”
Kim Fields
"Avalon Misty & Milky are pleasant colors, not my favorite, but nice. On their own, they have a soft calm color over white. With black stringers, the colors look grey."
Suzanne Cancilla-Fox
"Avalon is a very pale green that comes in a Misty and Milky option. The Misty version is more transparent and the Milky version is more opaque. Both are lovely and both are very easy to work with. No shockiness at all, even without pre-heating. The Misty is on the left and the Milky is on the right. Many, many possibilities with this one. It will go well with so many colours!"
Heather Johnson
"I love the moonstone look of Avalon Misty, just lovely."
Anna Miller
"Avalon Misty is an opal pale green. This glass melts easily and behaved in the creation of the hollow bead sprinkled with a band of Pendragonfyre hand blended glass frit. The barrel beads were wrapped with 99% fine silver wire that fumed an ever so slight golden cast." See more at Darlene's blog.
Darlene Collette
"Avalon Misty [shell] and Milky [drops]. This is a really pretty, very pale opal green. It behaved well in the flame, no shockiness or bubbling. I added a little silver foil and frit to the beads being careful to keep an oxygen rich flame as I wanted to avoid any fuming effect and resulting discolouration on the surface. The difference between the misty and milky can clearly be seen in the beads."
Josephine Wadman
"Avalon Misty and Milky glass testing. Just a gorgeous, subtle tint of blue-green. They are both smooth and buttery to melt and great for sculpture. The Avalon Misty had an opalescent glow that was particularly nice and the milky had just enough pigment to have even the thinner parts read as that lovely pale blue-green. I really enjoyed both of these."

"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!"
Trudi Doherty
"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
"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.
Laura Sparling
"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.
