Jellybean is a striking opal color that shifts from a bright violet in daylight/LED lighting to transparent opal blue under CFL's. Jellybean is a striking opal color which means it will develop a milky opalescence when struck in the flame. The opalescent strike can be brought out by heating the glass to a light orange glow then allowing it to cool to non-glowing before reheating once again - repeating these steps will grow a milky opalescence in the glass. Kiln striking will not bring out any opal effects. Imploding/encasing Jellybean can also bring out more of the milky strike.
Jellybean is soft working when hot and is easily sculpted - we have not found any compatibility issues with clear, other colors, or encasement but suggest trying a test piece if working with difficult colors or a high-stress technique (like murrini). Jellybean may show surface texture on some rods and tubes but will melt smooth when worked in the flame.
