… where nothing turns out as expected.
On my first set of beads, I envisioned those two moonstone colors – a milky green and a milky clear, mingling in some thousand year old glacier. Well, the CIM Cirrus glass turned opaque white on me. I made test beads, and in those beads it stayed a lovely milky moonstone transparent. So when I opened the kiln this morning, I was disappointed to see this:
And the second set, I was hoping for a cleaner, stronger hot pink (mixed with peaches and apricots). Instead of that the colors look a bit livery to me. I know, it’s because I mixed the Gold Pink with peach and apricot, which gives it a warmer tint … but it was just not what I expected 😦
