CiM 306 Honey Mustard

Yep - CiM Honey Mustard is just that colour - or maybe Dijoinaisse. Certainly not the virulent yellow of French's (gack!) Mustard - but a soft, warm beige. Like antique paper.

The bead on the right was not struck before going into the kiln - it was significantly lighter, but has come out of the kiln functionally the same colour as the bead on the left, so while it looks different going into the kiln, apparently it will darken up by itself.

Nice creamy organic colour. Try this for ponies or a substitute for Ivory. Don't know if it reacts with turquoise. Might be interesting to try fuming it or working with silver with it.
