Don't kill me for this, but Devardi has some of the most beautiful op peaches that I've ever seen!

Devardi- true. Also, perhaps have a look at CIM phoenix- although it can also strike to orange.

If you can use COE 96, Gaffer 111 Salmon is a gorgeous peach.

There are some Devardi colors that I like so much that I am willing to baby them to use them. One is a beautiful pink called Lipstick. They do have some lovely peaches.

Thompson has a nice peach enamel if that would fit your application.

Thanks for all the suggestions.

I have a box of the Devardi when it first came out so will check if there's any in there. I'm just not a fan of the huge amount of babying it needs.
I looked at the Gaffer Salmon too and it is lovely but man, it's expensive !
Kristin, I have the CIM Phoenix and tried that this morning so we'll see on that one.
Mary, I have that peach enamel so will check it out.

CIM Adobe - I have some I would be willing to sell but it's not cheap.

I agree with devardi having nice peachy colors but it is what it is. I also agree with the CIM Phoenix, on both counts

I have the CIM Peaches and Cream and while it's ok, sometimes it just looks washed out or if overworked, dark in spots. It's a kind of fussy color.

Thanks Shawnette.

Thanks to all for the help. Much appreciated.
I went with several options. Ordered the Gaffer after all and of course didn't stop at the Salmon ! Also ordered some really pretty frits from Val Cox which will work as well.
I'm also gonna try the peach enamel.

Moretti carnelian, encased in clear pink. Lovely, and carnelian is a overlooked color with amazing results.

Expensive? 0.25kg bundle of cane (small rods) (1/2 pound) is $10.83.

Diane, the first time I looked at the website and prices, I saw over $3.00 PER ROD but was looking at another color. I didn't edit my post but guess I should of.
If you look at post #14 you'll see I placed the order.

Sorry, I didn't see that. Yeah, the Gaffer colors are gorgeous and I am glad you ordered some. Peach is one of those colors that is really hard to find. Have fun with what you got!

Some of the Vetro odd Seashell Swirl will turn a lovely opaque peach if you really cook it.

I have been wanting a really nice peach for quite a while now. I've tried Reichenbach apricot, CiM opaque and transparent peach, and a couple of others. After reading this thread, I bought a few Devardi peach colors, and am in love with opaque salmon! Some colors were the proverbial "frit on a stick", but this one was buttery smooth to melt. Their transparent peach is nice too.
Of course, I ordered some pinks, and a lime green, and they are quite nice also. Sadly, the marine blue/green was frit, but I gathered up all the blown apart bits with some effetre white, and it made quite the pretty beads.

That sounds pretty too. I'll try that next time I torch. I tried encasing a Devardi opaque peach in the tranparent, but both beads cracked. It may have been from them cooling too much, but I'm not sure.
