Default pink opalino - Effetre

Does anyone know, does this glass get sooty easily?
Thanks for your help.

I would assume it would, like all other opalinos from Effetre. I have been gravitating towards R-bach and I really like their mystic pink for a pearly look...it just doesn't take shaping and reheating well before it loses color.

I suppose you could carefully try the opalino if you have it already, preheating and working high in the flame, etc. It is a pretty color and I don't know of many substitutes that don't have their issues, also.

I've not had a problem with soot, but I work with NG.

I had problems with boiling as well as with devitrifying along the border with other colors.

Oh bummer. There's a periwinkle alabaster that boils ridiculously. It's so disappointing.

What about pink alabaster? Same issues? I have good results with the Nile green opalino.

I just work those colors way out at the top of the flame. They don't like to be worked hot at all.

I gave up on the idea. Well, I did order 1/4 pound of pink opalino. But the second it even frizzles, I'm out. Can't stand dealing with such issues. Besides, I have a terrible habit of working too low in the flame and too hot. Sigh...

I tried my Effetre pink opalino a couple of times and do not see where I can use it. May be over something sparkly it worth the effort ? I did tried it with HH though. May be with my new NG/oxy set up it might work.

Czech glass has an amazing pink opal that's super easy to work. I'm loving it

Patti, it's perfect. Was it a very slow melting ? I gave up on my opalino's after trying on NG and it boiled. It would be too frustrating to add it to the bead and screw it up at the end. I might try it again for clouds (might turn into sponges though )

Sweet beads, and that pink glows! Glad you persevered.

I have a mini CC and it was fine. I just have to remember to melt high in the flame and not too hot. I have a habit of being low and too hot. It wasn't too hard. =)
No boiling.
My fav's are Effetre Nile green, CIM Frozen (white) and this pink.
Oh and several other CIMs. Kryptonite is excellent. A turquoise one which I can't recall the name.
The opalinos are great because they are stiffer. When I am focused on an area for stringer work, the spot doesn't melt away. It can be a struggle with opaques.
