Creation is Messy New Color Testing: Peppermint Cream, Egg White, Lemonade, Baked Alaska

(Left to Right:  Peace, Peppermint Cream, Egg White, Lemonade, and Baked Alaska)

Peppermint Cream is a soft, muted verdant linen.  The color looks to fall between Muskmelon and Dirty Martini in the CiM family.  The color could easily be mistaken for a neutral since the hue extremely subtle in nature.  The longer the glass is worked in the flame, the more muted the color becomes.  Easily molded and keeps a nice crisp edge through the heating process.  Fantastic for sculpture and holding detail.  No shocking or bubbling occurred during testing. 

Egg White is a lemon cream opal.  The glass is very similar in color to CiM Lemonade, however not as transparent.  During the heating process, the glass appears to be striking yellow, however do not let the butterscotch color fool you.  Once annealed, the lovely color of Egg White reappears.  On a unique note, when a transparent encasement or lens is layered on Egg White, the glass appears to sparkle from within.  I believe it to be the magnification of minute bubbles in Egg White.  Still, this is an unexpected, eye catching effect.  No shocking or hazing occurred during testing. 

Lemonade is a zesty new transparent glass.  The fresh color is a welcome addition to the CiM line.  True to the name, the color is quite a match for lemonade.  No shocking or bubbling occurred during testing. 

Baked Alaska is a cupid kissed buttercream.  The color can range from light cream to a golden custard with a hint of blush.  The glass is perfect for a variety of projects from nature inspired sculptures to the silly spectrum.  Looking forward to adding this color to my studio supply.  No shocking or bubbling occurred during testing.
