000009 Reactive cloud opal (BEgt) May react with Cu and Ag. Stron red reaction
Ret
000013 Opaque white (BEgt) Stable. No color shift.
(LL) According to BE sheet glass does not contain leas, rods do.
Ret
000024 Tomato red (BEgt) Color opalizes upon firing, becoming more consistent. Color may dapple with excessive heatwork. Ret
000025 Tangerine Orange (BEgt)Opalizes upon firing, becoming darker and much more consistent in color. Ret
000034 Lt peach cream (BEgt)Stable. No color shift. Ret
000100 Black (BEgt)Although termed an opal due to its almost total lack of light transmission, this is (in terms of its composition) actually a transparent glass.Low viscosity. Will flow sooner and more than other glasses. In very thin sections the color may vary from reddish/gray to bluish/gray. Ret
000101 StiffBlack (BEgt)Stable. No color shift. Ret
000108 Powder Blue (BEgt) Stable. No color shift. Ret
000112 Mint Green (BEgt) Stable. No color shift. Ret
000113 White (BEgt) Opalizes upon firing. Slight dappling apparent in transmitted light. Ret
000114 Cobalt
Blue
(BEgt) Stable. No color shift. Ret
000116 Turquoise blue (BEgt) A copper glass. May have dark color reaction at interface with cadmium/selenium or sulfur glasses (000125, 000120, 000124, 001120, 001125, 001122, 001137, 001437, 000137). Ret
000117 Mineral Green (BEgt) Stable. No color shift. Ret
000118 Periwinkle (BEgt) Stable. No color shift. Ret
000120 Canary yellow (BEgt) A cadmium glass. See notes on reactions with ( 001116, 001408, 001417, 000144, 000145, 000146) Ret
000124 Red (BEgt) A cadmium/selenium glass. Can react with lead-bearing glasses or overglazes. Possible reactions with (001311, 001215). Much color variation typical upon firing. If specific color is important, always test before beginning project. Use glasses from same dates. Do not assume that sheets of the same color when cold will fire identically. Ret
000125 Orange (BEgt) Cadmium/selenium glass. Can fuse darker (more red) or lighter (more yellow) than cold sheet.
(LL) May get dark reaction with copper glasses
( 000116, 001408, 001417, 000144, 000145, 000146)
Ret

Only rods
Ret
000132 Driftwood
grey
(BEgt) Stable. No color shift. Ret
000136 DecoGray (BEgt) Stable. No color shift. Ret
000137 French Vanilla (BEgt) A sulfur glass. May react with gold-bearing lead (001311, 001411, 000301, 000305) and copper (001116, 001408, 001417, 000144, 000145, 000146) glasses to create dark interface (lead sulfide, copper sulfide). Very viscous; will flow later and less than other glasses. Generally more sensitive to heat-history and more likely to show variation in color after fusing than many opals. When fired on edge, a clear distinction between outside and interior surfaces is commonly seen (a variation used by designers). This glass may become increasingly white with repeated firings. Consider using glass from the same batch for a given project.
(LL) A very interesting glass, of which I have heard many comments
Ret
000138 Marzipan Striker (BEgt) As cold may appear mostly transparent with variation in color density. Opalizes to a consistent, marzipan/off-white upon firing. Ret
000139 Almond
Striker
(BEgt) May appear mostly transparent with lacy patches of color.
Opalizes to a consistent almond/off-white color upon firing.
(LL) A new glass of which I have't heard much comments
000141 Dark Forest Green (BEgt) As cold partly transparent. Dappled backside. Opalizes upon firing. Dappling may occur, especially if exposed to excessive heatwork. Ret
000142 Neo Lavender (BEgt) Will appear more pink in incandescent light; more blue in fluorescent. Stable. No color shift.
(LL)The color is sensitive to illumination both before and after firing.
Ret
000143 Lacy White (BEgt) White translucent glass with clear dapples suggesting lace. Clear dapples will strike to white, disappearing. Translucence of this now entirely white sheet will vary. Ret
000144 Teal Green (BEgt) Some light/dark variations common on surface. Light/dark variations generally disappear on firing. Dark interface reaction likely with sulfur glasses (001137, 001437, 000137). Ret
000145 Jade Green (BEgt) Some light/dark variations common on surface. Light/dark variations generally disappear on firing. Dark interface reaction likely with sulfur glasses (001137, 001437, 000137). Ret
000146 Steel Blue (BEgt) At tack fusing temperatures, the surface frequently develops a metallic gray film. This usually disappears at full fusing temperatures. To avoid metallic filming, use an overglaze or cover with thin clear glass. To maintain the metallic effect, fire as quickly and low as possible. Consider stencil spraying of an overglaze to create patterns of metallic and non-metallic blue. Dark interface reaction likely with sulfur glasses (001137, 001437, 000137). Learn more by downloading Special Effects: 0146 Steel Blue (LL) The silver greay reaction is irreversible. If the glass id fired trough reaction zone back to blue, the surface color is stable. One has tosandblast or grind away quite deep to get a new reactive surface. Ret
000147 Deep Cobalt Blue (BEgt) Stable. No color shift. Ret
000149 Coffee Cream Striker (LL) Not produced any more Ret
000164 Egyptian Blue (BEgt) Opalizes upon firing. May contain thin threads of color variation. Ret
000203 Woodland brown (BEgt) Opalizes upon firing. Color becomes slightly lighter with slight dappling.
(LL) In principle may react with all reactive colors, but the reulting hue is pretty close to original.
Ret
0000212 Olive Green (BEgt) cold:Consistent color. Partly transparent. Slightly dappled. Fired:Opalizes upon firing. Consistent color, slightly lighter than the cold sheet. Ret
000216 Lt Cyan (BEgt) As cold very slight orange-peel mottling. At full fuse, capped or uncapped, the mottling disappears and the color is consistent, even and pure. At slumping temperatures and low-tack fusing temperatures (1150-1250°F/621-677°C), gray clouding may occur (similar to Steel Blue 000146), especially where contamination from oils and/or cleaner is left behind during the cleaning process. Solution: cap this color with clear or test for each specific application. The clouding can be erased from an uncapped piece by capping with clear glass and firing to a full fuse Ret
000220 Sunflower Yellow (BEgt) Matures to a consistent deeper yellow. Color will shift toward 000120 with excessive heatwork. Ret
000224 Deep Red (BEgt) Color may contain streaky variation
(LL)Red color that apparently does not react with blue/green group.
(Barbara Muth) Reacts with itself like French Vanilla. There is a reaction stripe between pieces,

(LL) Red color that apparently does not react with blue/green group
Ret
000227 000227 Golden
Green
Cold: Browner than in the struck sheet, the color matures to golden green during the firing process. Fired: May reveal subtle light/dark green wisps in a full-fuse firing.

000236 Slate grey (BEgt) Stable. No color shift. Ret
000243 translucent
white
(BEgt)Striker. May appear mostly clear with patches of thin milky white. Opalizes upon firing. Consistent color, thin milky white. Color may become slightly streaky and transparent with excessive heatwork. Ret

000320 marigold Yellow (BEgt)Cold:May appear partly transparent with wide variations in color density. Overall look of a lighter, brighter yellow such as 000120. Fired: Matures to an opaque marigold yellow. May appear slightly dappled. Ret
000321 Pumpkin
Orange
(BEgt) Matures to pumpkin orange, which may contain slight color variations. Ret
000329 Burnt Orange (BEgt) At full fuse and capped with clear glass, the mottling may remain but become faint in transmitted light. Lighter wisps may appear in reflected light. When uncapped, the mottling tends to even out and the color becomes more consistent and even. Ret
000332 Plum striker (BEgt)Striker. Color darkens in extended firing Ret
000334 Gold Purple (BEgt)Matures to a consistent gold/purple. May become much darker with excessive heatwork.
(LL) I regard it as a striker
Ret
000336 Deep Grey (BEgt)Slightly dappled Ret
000337 Butter
Scotch
(BEgt) At full fuse and capped with clear glass, the mottling usually remains. When fired uncapped, the mottling is less obvious and the color evens out to become more consistent. Ret
000403 Opaline striker (BEgt)Slightly dappled. Works well over bright opal colors to create pastels Ret
000421 Petal Pink (BEgt) Stable. No color shift.
(LL) A reddish color that apparently does not react with blue/green group.
