  • Description

1/4 Kilo of Porpoise (Ltd Run) CiM Glass Rods, 11-12 rods.

Ltd Run colours are manufactured in extremely small quantities and might not be repeated again so the advice is always to buy as much as you can if you like it.

Porpoise is described as "an opaque grey"

I like this color, it is easy to apply and has many uses.

"Porpoise is a streaky medium grey. It makes a great raccoon. When it is heated it goes green in the flame and I thought maybe I had gotten my Porpoise rod confused with my Bayou rod, however when cool it is a neutral grey rather than a grey green."

"These textured ammonite beads have been burnished with fine silver leaf." Read more at Kitzbitz Art Glass' blog.

"Porpoise melted smoothly with no shockiness or bubbles. It works excellent alone or as a base color. It is a fabulous base for frits. A base of Porpoise was a gorgeous base for Val Cox Starry Night frit blend. Porpoise was a fantastic base for the stipple stitch bead with Triton stringer. I love greys and Porpoise is no exception."
Paula Schertz

"It must be tricky making grey glass and coming up with an interesting name for it. Porpoise is a good name, though. Much better than ‘John Major’ or ‘Filing Cabinet’. Porpoise is a nice medium grey. It’s quite streaky but melted fine and the rod was well-behaved on the shockpoppery front. Porpoise goes green when it’s hot and for a while I thought I’d open the kiln to green beads but then I remembered that no, porpoises are grey and yep, the beads ended up that way too."

"A beautiful grey green that reacts beautifully with silver glass. A creamy consistency that can leave some trails of colour the more it is heated, giving a more organic look. Here shown with Effetre black 064 dots and DH Triton dots over the black dots."
