Celadon

Hi there
I have a request for a bead with a celadon base. I thought about using opalino but I need to add decorations that I can only do using the normal colors and I am afraid of breakage. Any suggestions ?
Thanks
Anne

try the very pale emerald green over white or maybe over ivory. It will probably be lighter than you want, but it's the closest thing I can think of, and very pretty.

Carolyn Driver posted her recipe for celadon awhile back - it is sage, dark grey, and grass green, in equal parts. I haven't tried it yet, but some other folks have and said it's gorgeous. (Kinda like everything Carolyn does...)

By the way, Anne, silly question: how do you say glass beads in french? We have a guy here at work who saw some of my beads and wanted to translate it into french, but didn't know how. Neither did I.

I have used Carolyn's recipe and got a lovely shade of celedon. One of the beads I just auctioned off "Seafoam Barnacle" has that glass on the ends of the base bicone.



I use a postal scale to measure out the glass by grams. Then attach the pieces, one by one, to a steel punty and mix.

Mona, what a wonderful bead! I love the colors combination and the way you are able to get just enough "decoration" without going overboard! Keeping it simple in style and form!
That takes discipline.

Anne, I have had great luck using the Opalino, and in the Celadon (jadish) green color, with decorations of Moretti all over them and never had one to break of react strangely. I like to use the Opalino and if you take it slow, you should not have a problem. IMHO!
Let me know what you do.
THe best,
Beth

because everything sounds so classy in French?

(even things like "booger" ... the things one learns by hanging out on glass forums ...)

Humh,

Now that would take looking it up in my French slang dictionary which is unfortunately at home. I never managed to learn a lot of slang during my year in Paris but I can read just about any art historical text. I still use my French everyday in my job along with the normally useless degrees in history and art history. Too bad I never learned to speak the language fluently .

I make a nice celadon by mixing ivory, pastel "pea green" (I can't remember the number, but it is the lightest moretti pastel green) and a tiny bit of transparent cobalt. This makes a wonderful, stable celadon. If too much cobalt is added the color grays a bit. Sorry, no photos.
