Painted Hills is a warm vanilla color. Initially, the glass is milky white when heated, but the soft golden yellow tone begins to bloom as the glass cools. A beautiful addition to the CiM family. No shocking or bubbling occurred during testing.
Yellow Brick Road is a golden kissed Dijon. The color is a more subtle tone of Honey Mustard. When initially introduced to the flame, the glass is extremely milky in color. During the heating/cooling process of working the glass, the golden tones begin to bloom. No shocking or bubbling occurred during testing.
Class M Planet is an exciting new addition to the CiM family. This blue version of Canyon de Chelly exhibits an assortment of lovely tones including moody denim, soft French blue, and mossy green. Definitely on my "must have" list. No shocking or bubbling occurred during testing.
Splash is a pale periwinkle with a hint of sapphire. The lovely transparent glass is in the same tonal family as Halong Bay. No shocking or bubbling occurred during testing.
Blue Arrow Frog is a deep, lapis blue. The rich opaque color is darker than Ming and more on par with the vibrate color of Royal. A nice addition for a variety of projects and designs. No shocking or bubbling occurred during testing. (Blue background color for the koi cabochon pictured above.)
Garnet is a dark, berry-stained red. The glass easily strikes with little effort. The rich color blooms into a saturated blood red. From Valentine's Day to Halloween, this glass is perfect for fun Holiday designs throughout the entire year. Counting the days until the release date! (Accent rounds in the Ogre Toe bead set.)
Prairie Grass is a happy, citrus green. Akin to Elphaba this color is not streaky with extensive gloss striations. No shocking or bubbling occurred during testing. (Main color in the Ogre's Toe bead.)
Spearmint is a refreshing minty blue. The color addition spans the gap between Kryptonite and Mint Lozenge. The glass is a dream to shape and mold. No shocking or bubbling occurred during testing.
One of life's great troll quandaries, why bother to put on clothes when you live under a bridge? Meet Twitch the Troll. During the week, he works for the NY Port Authority monitoring E-ZPass violators along the Staten Island Bridge. This tough as nails troll has a softer side and I'm not talking about his hair. On the weekends, Twitch enjoys riddles, the Sunday crossword puzzle and lounging with his 3 cats. #gingertroll
