replacement for opaline 0403

Dear Mary Kay,

You mentioned in another post that this was a curios glass. I am now on a roll making cone bowls, and really like the combination of the opaline with a strong base color.

Could you please suggest a replacement for this curios opaline that would give me a similar result?

I have to import the glass, therefore would really appreciate your advice, so I can order the right one...have only got 3 pieces left, :cry:

Many thanks, myvalley

Hi Myvalley,

Try using Opaline 000403-0030-F in your bowls. It should work similarly to the curious version in the shot of four cone bowls. Or, for more translucency, you could try the thin version: Opaline 000403-0050-F.

Good luck with your bowls!
