Default CiM - Mink

I am using CiM Mink to make a string of round beads, it is turning out quite nicely..... BUT how do I keep the Transparent consistency of the glass which I think is it's true color rather than it turning an opaque gray, which is ok but not what I am trying to achieve.
Thanks in advance for any insight on this

I'm so glad I looked at that CIM link, I love the color mixes everyone has been doing with mink. I have been wanting better browns for so long.

Here, did you see DragonJools:

She recommends to use over clear or white to retain the translucency. If it is overworked, it may also tend to opaque.

I need suggestions on what to use it with, I make organic beads mostly but I just can't get into Mink. Great for mushrooms lol.
