  • Description

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.

Koala is described as an "opaque neutral grey"


"Koala is a deep dense grey that stays grey - not brown, purple or blue. Not shocky to work with. Photo shows consistent colour after being worked for 4 hours in the flame"
 Tammy Mercier
"Koala, in the rod, at my torch, looked like a warm brown, but here at my computer - it is more of a blue grey - pretty close to neutral though" Read more at DragonJools blog.

"Koala is the actually grey one out of all these grey-looking rods. It has striated here next to the New Ivory and produced strong dark lines but from the bottom of the bead looks like it would stay pretty uniform away from that" Read more at Heather's blog.

"Koala is a lovely true medium neutral grey - not too blue and not too brown. It's lighter and cooler than Adamantium. In rod form, it actually does have a bluish cast, but that goes away when melted, for the most part. As a plain spacer, it retains much of its shade, but when encased in clear Koala lightens up quite a bit, as you can see here with the spacers I made" Read more at Kandice's blog.

"Koala melted well in a moderate flame with no issues. You can see that the end of the rod has rings of colour ... suggesting it may be a striker, but the beads I made all came out a consistent colour [maybe something to bear in mind if you work it longer in the flame or even the soak time in the kiln perhaps? It's a beautiful soft grey that sits between Effetre 268 and 248."

"I like the bright crisp tone to this pretty grey, it does not appear to have striations when worked" Read more at Kitzbitz Art Glass' blog.

"This dark slate grey flows with ease and is a joy to sculpt. When introduced to enamels, the glass did not bubble or matte like other greys, but remained clean and true to the original colour"
