Default pearl color and shine?

Is anyone aware of a pearlized (natural - cream) color in rod form - any coe is fine, lighter than an ivory.

Thanks!
Barbara

Does it have to be 104? Maybe shampoo glass if not? I have seen pictures and it is very pretty.

yes second the pearl beige. It is listed as a mystic, under transparents for some reason on the Olympic color rod site. There is a darker one as well. I love the pearl beige, and i will say that you need to work all the mystics a little cool, and not overwork them

I've heard that Effetre white opalino is pearly looking, I think it's #504 maybe?

I've actually gotten that effect from Marvelous. It's beautiful.

I seem too lose the pretty and subtle shine of shampoo glass unless i melt one huge blob and place that hot blob on the mandrel without further heat to shape the bead nicely. looks like a croissant when i'm done!

I don't have any of the suggested colors, will try the Olympic Color first

Where do I find "marvelous"? Is it Effetre?

I ordered a beige color from Double Helix and will try it tonight.

Thanks so much for all the suggestions, keep them coming!

Czech shampoos have to be worked cool, cool, cool. If you see little sparkles flying ... the sheen is burning out.

Czech has a white shampoo and I have a cream/beige that only comes in pressing rod form instead of lampworking cane. It could be blended with white if too dark.

However ... I agree with the statements on Pearl Beige. They also have Mystic Beige but I don't like that as well ... it seems to stay more tranparent for me than the Pearl. Love it as a base for silver glass as well since it is Non-reactive!!
