I don't know about Butter, but I have a Egyptian white that, if you start it slow you can get it very hot without bubbling - it has to get to a certain stage of "hottness" before you can really hit it with heat

Butter is a Parramore color.

I have made a lot of eyeball pendants. I like Sno White - doesn't bubble or turn yellow and it is smooth and creamy.

Just so you know butter is a soft yellow so unless your doing eyes for someone with liver trouble I do not think that the color your looking for. I do know there are a lot of people on facebook calling colors butter as a slang for a color that melt smooth and creamy.

for eyes i like asian white encased in thin layer of clear or jade white. other i have talked to like borobar white or Snow White.

Good luck.

I like sno white powder. If you learn to do a decent, even coverage, you can get a nice white that's just dirty enough to not be a bright white, which can look "off" in eyeballs.
