This page will serve as a quick link to my "Let's Create" posts. The posts are strictly my personal opinion based on years of working with glass. I will compare and contrast new additions to the CiM palette with other 104 CoE brands such as Effetre, Vetrofond, Lausha, and Double Helix (to name a few).
I currently work on a Carlisle Mini CC. The adjustable flame accommodates the wide variety of detail and allows for torching larger focals. My studio set up includes an EX-15 Oxygen Concentrator and dedicated natural gas line which produces an incredibly clean flame. No bothering with changing out fuel tanks or refilling tanks, which is a nice plus.
Readers will be able to reference colors by name, compare finishes, and preview reactions in full detail. I hope my finding will provide a guide for flameworkers and assist in capturing their own creative vision. The shared experiences and insights will help readers to predict end results before ever lighting a torch and instill true color confidence. The process of color testing CiM glass will be a journey I hope you join me on.
