Creation is Messy New Color Testing: Harvest, Monarch, Canoe, Bone, Tardis
From Left to Right (Phoenix, Harvest, Creamsicle, Monarch, Alley Cat)
Harvest is a festive Fall coral. The new color addition is slightly lighter than CiM's Phoenix with a blush of pumpkin. The glass is quite firm which nicely lends to sculptural projects. No shocking or bubbling occurred during testing.
Monarch is an opaque Autumn butterscotch. A lighter version of CiM's Alley Cat, the new color has a hint of burnt umber. No shocking or bubbling occurred during testing.
Canoe is a warm, toasted chestnut. The glass features a hint of russet when worked with a cool tool. The new color has a lovely hint of expresso brown and is a unique addition to the 104 palette. When introduced to fine silver, the glass actually becomes lighter in color. (See photo below)
Colors from Left to Right: 2 beads made from Tardis, 2 beads made from Bone, 2 beads made from Canoe.
Bone is a grayish ecru. The opaque glass is perfect for Halloween skulls and other sculptural work. A fantastic new addition to the CiM family. When wrapped in fine silver foil, the glass turns a rusty, burnt umber. No shocking or bubbling occurred during testing.
Tardis is a polar blue. The color is vibrant in sunlight, yet subtle under indoor lights; a bluish green Ming of sorts. Inert when paired with fine silver (see example photo featured earlier in this post). No shocking or bubbling occurred during testing.
