Default Is there a nice, true transparent orange? 104?

Hello! I'm searching for some nice, true transparent orange. I've seen tangerine and some yellows, but nothing nice and true orange. Does anyone know of something I might like?

Thank you!

Is that the one with the tiny line down the center of the rod? If so, I have a few of those, and they come out red. The line inside looks orange, but once struck, it's just red.

Effetre has a striking red, yellow orange. It's possible you may have the red one.

Hey Mel! I use Lauscha's transparent orange.



It's a nice orange. Although I don't use much orange in my beads, I've never noticed it turning red. Maybe if you mixed or layered your transparent orange with transparent yellow -- that might help. Back when Effetre still made translucent yellow, that was a GREAT base for transparent orange.

Those are luscious! Now I need to make something ORANGE!

You know, I should NEVER respond to any question having to do with transparent colors. Since my work is blown, and the walls are thinner, more light passes through, making the color totally different from what it would be in most beads.

I'm sitting here drooling over the orange color combos. Yummilicious!

This is hands-down my favorite transparent orange. It's oddlot 937 Vetrofond Arancio Perfecto. I typically use it with quite a bit of clear, to let the light shine through.

I've just fallen in love with CIM Clockwork. OMG is it juicy!!!!! A lot of other oranges tend to go streaky the more you work them. Clockwork will, too, but it seems to take a whole lot more effort to do it. This butterfly is a layer of Clockwork, a wrap of copper dichro, and another layer of Clockwork, with stripes and dots of Black Nebula. Not my best butterfly ever but the glass gods told me to stop when I did, so I listened.

Thanks, Karen! I'm looking forward to meeting you! You really should give the Arancio a try....it's bulletproof. You can work it forever. It's a bit fussy to strike, but that just makes it exciting, lol.

I checked my stock.. the ones that have the reddish line down the center is the transparent red. The orange is almost totally colorless. It has a SLIGHT tint of yellow to it in rod form

Thank you for checking that! The rods I have, have a real thin line down the center, and it looks orange. Tomorrow when I have better lighting, i'll take a pic and show you.

I really like clockwork orange and I really like it together with leaky pen.

I like the fact that clockwork orange can be both opaque and transparent.

Dang Sherry! Awesome bead! It seriously made my mouth water. I think I'm hungry for oranges, lol!
I need to go play with orange. Or eat an orange.
