  • 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.

Portal is described as a "misty opal white "

Testers reported

Portal is a new opal white. This bead set was created using Portal as the base glass. Layered dots of CiM Prussian Blue, a deep opaque blue laden with silver, and rare Double Helix Olympia Rain. Clear portal dots of Double Helix Zephyr were added to capture the stormed reaction of the silver glass. Each portal turned a pretty green as a result of the reaction between the two silver laden glasses." See more at Darlene's blog.

"Portal is a fabulous white moonstone color, I love how it keeps its translucency very consistently. It was not prone to scumming, popping or cracking. Easy to work with. [I work on a Hot Head.]"
 Alexis Berger
"Portal is an ethereal cloudy white similar to Cirrus. It was a bit soft to sculpt with but worth the effort. I just love the effect."
 Lori Peterson
"I encased this bead in Effetre superclear 006. Sometimes I get a yellowing if the clear goes on a bit too hot with the white opals. To be honest, though, I think it adds to its delight."

"Portal is a lovely glass that when used as encasing will soften the colors. Portal is more translucent than Gossamer. I needed to preheat it to avoid shockiness. No issues with bubbling or scumming. Played nicely with dichroic and silver glass on the surface of the bead."
 Terri Herron
"Portal is a stunning opal-moonstone colour. Subtle yet elegant with a misty veil illuminating throughout that dances in the light. I preheated this rod as similar colours like this I found very shocky, so I would recommend preheating. Works well with silver glass and once preheated it melts like a dream. I love everything about this colour as you can make it as subtle as you want and jazz it up with other glass."
