CiM - Creation Is Messy 2022 Color - Diaphanous Milky Ltd Run

Creation Is Messy’s 2022 Diaphanous Misty Ltd Run is the misty sister of the milky glass that I previously tested. This ivory misty opal melts smoothly with no stockiness. 

I have been told that this glass was related to a previous CiM transparent glass called Peachy Keen Ltd Run I unfortunately did not have any left in my CiM stash, so I picked up a rod of CiM Nectar Ltd Run and used it for this set of beads.


 
The round beads are a 50/50 of Nectar and Diaphanous Misty with a sprinkling of Double Helix Aurae fine frit. Each bead was wrapped with 99% fine silver wire and reduced to bring out the metallic glitter of the silver glass.


Four round beads of Diaphanous Misty were coated in fine frit and reduced. Plain spacers of the base glass complete the set.

CiM - Creation Is Messy 2022 Color - Ocelot Ltd Run

In this fun new Creation Is Messy streamer glass for 2022, Ocelot Ltd Run is described as a clear base with orange, yellow, & black streamers.
Previously CiM had experimented with other streamer glass combinations. My favourite was in 2020 with Circus Tent Ltd Run, see my previous post about it here. 
 
I decided to pair Ocelot with a complimentary brown glass from my CiM stash - Brown Eyed Girl Ltd Run.
 


This set of tapered barrels used Ocelot as the focal centre stripe with ends of Brown Eyed Girl. I am please with how the streamers remained clear and visible with no smearing nor did they disappear or blend together. Both glasses melted smoothly and was a pleasure to work with.

 
The spacers are solid Brown Eyed Girl.

CiM - Creation Is Messy 2022 Color - Rare 2021.09.25

Each year when I have the wonderful opportunity to test new CiM - Creation Is Messy colors, there is always a rod or two of a surprise color that was part of their color recipe experiments.

This time around it was a rod of a light yellow cloudy transparent simply called 2021.09.25. It was not put into a production run, but the color is so pretty that I hope it may be created again in the future.

 
In this set of simple frit beads, the base glass was sprinkled with Val Cox Painter's Series - Neptune frit. 
 
 
This frit appears to no longer be available on Val's site, but I do see that it is in stock at Nortel Glass in Toronto.

 
The spacers are solid 2021.09.25 test glass. It melted smoothly like butter and I love the soft yellow tone.

CiM - Creation Is Messy 2022 Color - Diaphanous Milky Ltd Run

Just a quick post to show another few beads made with Creation Is Messy’s 2022 Diaphanous Milky Ltd Run. As I mentioned in a previous post, it is an ivory milky opal melts smoothly with no issues. It is a more opaque in comparison to its misty sister glass.


 
This mini set of beads was created with a base of CiM's new glass, on which Val Cox Royal Ballet glass frit was added. Diaphanous Milky's peach undertones mixed with the rich pink transparent of the frit created a delicate set of very pretty beads!

CiM - Creation Is Messy 2022 Color - Diaphanous Milky Ltd Run

Creation Is Messy’s 2022 Diaphanous Milky Ltd Run is an ivory milky opal melts smoothly with no issues. It is a more opaque in comparison to its misty sister glass.


This glittering set of beads was created with a base of CiM's new glass, on which Double Helix silver glass, Aurae frit was added and reduced to glittery goodness!


The silver glass fumed slightly with a golden glow which I think enhanced the peachy hue of the base glass. 

Spacer beads were included to provide a comparison between the decorated beads and the plain spacers.

CiM - Creation Is Messy 2022 Color - Glycerin Milky Ltd Run - Part 2

Just a quick post on another quick glass frit test using Creation Is Messy’s 2022 Glycerin Milky Ltd Run.

As I mentioned in a post on May 1, 2022, Glycerin is an off-white milky opal that bead testers describe as a moonstone. It is a clean white in my opinion and it melted smoothly with no issues.

In this mini-set of beads, I used Val Cox Montmartre. This frit pairs generous chunks of Purple Rose with a blend of golden transparents to create beads that appear to be illuminated from within.

Worked in a neutral flame, these beads were easy to complete with a sprinkling of frit and a wrap of 99% fine silver wire.

The spacer beads are pure Glycerin to note that the change in the color came from the orange and gold transparent rather than a reaction to the silver wire.
