Creation is Messy New Color Testing: Velveteen, Pistachio Ice Cream, Toto, Tamarind, Experimental

Colors from left to right:  Toto, Pistachio Ice Cream, Velveteen

Velveteen Ltd. Run is an alabaster beauty.  The glass begins as a soft caramel with slight pink undertones.  When flamepolished for an extended period time, a burgundy blush blooms in the glass.  Truly a unique beauty in the CiM line.  No shocking or bubbling. 

Pistachio Ice Cream Ltd. Run is well named.  The opaque glass has a soft gray-green hue which will pair nicely with any seasonal palette.  The versatile color was a joy to work with.  No shocking or bubbling. 

Toto Ltd. Run is a rich tortoise brown.  The glass initially is a bit muted in color, however when flamepolished for an extended period of time, a deep, rich golden-brown emerges.  A very desirable color for sculpting or organic forms.

Experimental Ltd. Run
Experimental Ltd. Run is a clean, crisp transparent.  No bubbling or hazing during testing.  When used for encasing a silver rich glass during flameworking an implosion technique with gold mica, the glass flowed nicely.  In comparison to Effetre 004, the CIM glass is buttery soft and encases easily, where the Effetre is sift and a bit unforgiving.
CiM experimental is on the left and Effetre 004 is on the right.
