6-8mm diameter Lauscha dark brown-orange translucent rods. New colour 15/02/12.
The brown-orange translucents are new colours from Lauscha: they are striking colours that are a little more opaque than the transparent oranges. From my tests, they seem to come out more streaky when worked less.
This is the darker version. Again, it has an extra depth that opaques do not and it will look more transparent when used thinly. Etching it gives it a soft velvety look and makes it appear significantly darker.
Used thinly it is brighter and more obviously transparent. I used it in some murrini.
Average weight per rod: 35
