Gypsy is a dark, ink purple. Initial observation led me to assume the glass was a transparent black, boy was I wrong! Pulling stringers reveal the true dark violet color. The transparent stringers flowed nicely into a abstract "cloud" shape in the vessel, retaining the crisp, clean line without distortion. The No shocking or bubbling experienced.
Project Recommendations: Organic themes, purple iris frit, floral cane for a hint of deep violet, sculpture.
Trapeze is a transparent, medium lavender. The vivid color is a wonderful addition to the CiM color palette. The stiff glass is perfect for sculpting or creating vessels, but flows easily for a lovely encasement. No shocking or bubbling.
Project Recommendations: Hearts, encasing, etch projects, floral projects, frit, a base for scrolling stringer work, sculpture.
Whisper is a pale opal pink with tones of gray. When layered over a transparent such as trapeze, the subtle opalino will take on the hue of the base color and render a lovely stippled texture (as can be seen in "Cloudscape" on the right-hand side of the vessel, above the Gypsy detail). No bubbling or shocking experienced.
Project Recommendations: Organic themed beads, hearts, combining with transparent glass for a milky effect.
Ice Floe is a transparent, light powder blue. Expecting the glass to have an aqua cast, I was happily surprised by the soft, cloud blue color. The glass was a dream to sculpt and shape. The neck and opening of "Cloudscape" were wound from Ice Floe. Over the hour of heating and reheating the vessel, I never once had to "fight" the glass or touch up the crisp lines of the vessel's neck. No bubbling or shocking.
