A lime green milky opal.




"Refreshing is the word that springs to mind with this colour, aptly named Honeydew, that's in the yellow end of the green spectrum. It's very pale yet not washed out, a perfect balance not always achieved. Notice how different the small rounds look [they have mica inside] in comparison to the hearts, it's quite surprising! Beautiful to work with, this melted smoothly with no issues. One that's on my favourite list for sure!" – Trudi Doherty

“While quite similar to Pond Slime, Honeydew is slightly paler and not quite as yellow. I love the translucent softness of this shade. There were no issues with working this glass nor was it shocky. Honeydew is shown here in rod form, as a sculpted flower, encasing silver foil and encasing white.”

"Honeydew [far right] is lovely and easy to work."

"Honeydew Milky is a lime green milky opal. I had no issues with melting this glass. It flowed easily and smoothly with no bubbles or shocking. Each bead was sprinkled with my own Pendragonfyre blended glass frit. The glass color stayed true under the frit as seen in comparison to the Honeydew spacers." See more at Darlene's blog.

"Just when I thought Pond Slime was a delicious new green, enter stage left Honeydew Milky. There’s no Misty version available of Honeydew but this Milky is just fine! Again, no problems melting even without pre-warming. No bubbling or shocking. This is an oh-so-lovely light milky soft green tipping slightly towards the yellow side. Paler than Pond Slime and sweeter in name. Melon anyone?"
Bianca Gruber
"I made a sculptural bird bead with Honeydew. Loved this color and found it easy to work with. I began with a clear ‘core’ body and then encased in Honeydew. 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."

"This little trio of hollow beads is yummy! We have left to right: Consuelo Milky, Pond Slime Milky and Honeydew Milky! I love them all, but the Honeydew is callin’ my naaame!! Prior to today I had kiln warmed all the glass prior to working it . . . this time, nope . . . didn’t warm it a bit and all three colors did fantastic! No bubbling, scumming or flying bits of glass! All of these milky glasses have a glow from within, a translucence that is captivating!"

"I was a little surprised this color changed when layered over the silvered ivory. It darkened a bit and yellowed and the silvered ivory end caps fumed a blue sheen over the surface. Another 'happy accident' as it looks like an earthier toned sea opal and really pretty. I love the reaction I got and the color it changed into."
