Default "Apricot" Coral ?

I actually am missing the 500 varieties of coral. I only have orange now and a couple rods of 'persimmon'. It's been a good while since we've had any new tones of coral.

A customer asked for "coral" and I had to laugh in my head. Of course the dress she showed looks like "poppy". Is there any glass 96 even that comes close? I ordered Reichenbach Flamingo and Apricot and both are just flesh colored boring.

One thing I have noticed about the corals...

You can NOT trust the rod color to be an authentic portrayal of the REAL color once it is melted.

Be careful!

I have about 15 different versions of Effetre coral.
And yes, they are all different.

Try mixing. Is there a translucent white in the 96 color line? Try mixing it with colors like coral, persimmon, orange, or apricot. You might come out with something interesting. In the 104 line, CiM has a number of translucent whites to play with. Marshmallow was a good choice.

Tom Gronwall had some beads on Facebook that exact color. He said it was 591419-O.

I don't have any of that one, so can't confirm, but if you google "Tom Gronwall Etsy" (or search for Jewelweaver on Etsy) you can find examples in his listings or his sold items.

I just went out and looked for you but the only color that even came close and looks just like the color on my monitor was orange sherbet.

I realize now I think I've asked this before I was asking even for an enamel this color...anything. I just really want something other than orange.
I'm just surprised there's nothing, no bullseye? Lauscha? Anything other than boro, if this existed I'm in.

Shrimp, I could mix for this one customer, if it were one bead. I remember a fb group that was just for mixing glass, this was one of the colors, a couple came close but I can't remember what, and it was not what we would've imagined.

I have this, mine is very orange. Cool streaky oranges, but orange. It's one I'm sending her, I'll try and get a pic.
(next to it is Reichenbach Apricot, while it is a tan, it is not this dark)

-edit wow ok, so all those beads he's calling apricot are this color? It's orange though, that's why it's called Apricot Orange on Frantz, I'm stumped

There is 591419-O and 591419-OO. What I have is older and just marked 591419.

Maybe Tom just got a different batch?

ETA: beads by Tom Gronwall.

ELizabeth those are yours? Yes then I would assume without the O is the pretty apricot :/

Mine is the -O in the pic, I also have OO and it's oranger.

So, just a heads up if you order thinking it'll be like his, it's not anymore, I have a batch from earlier and from a couple months ago.

Still searching, I wonder if it's like making pink and that's why we never get this hue?

Tom Gronwall’s beads. He said it was 591419-O. I don’t have that one, as I said up above somewhere.

I can suggest Effetre 420 POP, Coral Poppy and Effetre 420 PP, Peach Persimmon.

I also think you might consider CIM Phoenix.

CIM Phoenix is sadly bright orange now. It was always orange, but a striking orange, now it's just straight up bright orange, brighter than my pic up there of Effetre Apricot Orange.

None of those are in production anymore

How much do you need? Is this for a special project?

Or, are you wanting suggestions for glass in production?
