neither, in fact ............   I'm sweet enough as it is  ;)   ...............  but have to say that apart from my dry January months, I've become addicted to a drop of a good single malt in the coffee - does wonders for the flavour ;D

How about forgetting the coffee all together and attack the malt straight away? Sounds like you've got some catching up to do.

Sorry for letting myself go everybody, and dragging Paul along in the process ... back to topic now.

It goes way beyond my knowledge also Anne.  But I honestly don't think the thickness of a mold is the only, or deciding, factor.  I think the batch or recipe is probably the primary cause of pieces looking nearly opaque v those which are handblown looking very translucent.  I said 'think' because I honestly don't know as I am not a glassmaker  :-[

came across this article accidentally and remembered this deep blue opaline vase with a fluted rim (and the green one on CW also with a fluted rim).
This article shows a number of vases and patterns with the relief molded flowers ... none have a fluted rim though  ???
