Atoll Milky Ltd Run (5114006)<br />A green milky opal.

A green milky opal.




"Atoll Milky is a green milky opal leaning to the blue side of the spectrum. Starting on a base of this glass, I layered dots of Birchwood, a creamy opaque ivory, and a silver glass from my stash of 2016 Double Helix Garage Sale simply labelled as TC366. Clear portal dots of DH Zephyr were added to capture the stormed reaction of the silver glass producing the most brilliant blue portals that shine in the light. CiM's green glass stayed true to its original tone and melted beautifully and stayed stiff enough to maintain the layering without drifting or shifting. Dots of Double Helix Aurae complete each bead. End beads are solid Atoll Milky." Read more at Darlene's blog. – Darlene Collette

"Atoll Milky, on the mandrel, bottom, and Misty, jammed back onto the top of the mandrel. Side by side, not much difference. Beautiful either way."

"Just like the Misty version with a more opaque look to it. A firm melt that works a good quality of time in the flame without altering the colour. Beautiful shade for spring and summer."
Jean Daniels
"I am reviewing Atoll Misty, Atoll Milky, and Menthe together. I love all three of these colors. For me, they are all similar to Peacock Green. They melt beautifully - no scumming or burning. Menthe is stunning. It’s slightly more intense than Peacock Green, beautifully translucent, almost glowing. Atoll Misty/Milky is very similar to Peacock Green. Both are such lovely colors."

"Here is Atoll Milky and Atoll Misty. I'd say they are more or less identical in color and workability [which is great! No boiling or shocking issues.] Gorgeous sea foam shades."
Bling Squared Cute Glass
"Atoll is a lovely, pale minty color and I just love it. This one comes in both a milky and a misty version and they are both gorgeous. There is a noticeable difference between the two. My working notes: minimally shocky [milky] and not shocky [misty], nice melting, no scum, no pitting, easy to sculpt.”
Lori Peterson
"Atoll Milky is just sublime. A very versatile colour, beautiful in rod form and in finished form. You can make this as subtle or vibrant as you wish. I prefer the subtle look as it makes it easy to create a unique look. Works wonderfully with silver glass. Melts like butter, no boiling or scumming, but would recommend pre-heating."
Juliette Mullett
"Atoll is a lovely new spearmint translucent glass in the CiM range. Misty is left, milky is on the right but they are pretty close even outside in sunlight. I’d probably choose the misty over milky. This melted lovely with no shocking or need to preheat [as long as you heat gently of course]!"

“I made a sculptural bird bead with Atoll Milky. Love this color! Very similar to green fluorite. Easy to work with. I began with a clear ‘core’ body and then encased in Atoll Milky. This gives an opportunity to see encasement with the color. The head, wings and tail were added straight from the rod. I used Reichenbach Deep Black for the base of the beak followed by Effetre Pastel Yellow. The eyes were also Reichenbach Deep Black.”

"Here’s a fun little 'test glass' pendant! I grabbed three random new CiM green/blues from my test batch and made a bead! These are all 'milky' versions of Arctic, Atoll and Fjord. I pre-warmed all the rods to minimize any possible shocking and they were problem free. I love the milky versions of CiM- they have a soft, serene quality in my opinion."
Angela Dose
"There's something about these colours that makes me feel serene. Atoll is a beautiful soft shade of green with cooler blue tones. They're both beautiful colours to work with, non fussy and melt like a dream."
Trudi Doherty
"Atoll Milky is virtually identical to the sample I made using the 'misty' version. However, the milky version didn't develop a crack. I guess it didn't mind the silvered ivory as much as the misty version did. It's a pretty color."
Joy Munshower
"I love that Atoll Milky held its color, when I got it really hot I wasn't sure if it would. So I was very surprised. I also liked that it didn't change or burn my silver foil."
