CiM 2020 New Colors - Round 5

This is now Round 5 of my CiM - Creation is Messy 2020 Testing. Only a few more glass rods to complete the testing over the next couple of weeks.
Each of these tests are posted on Instagram individually so below is the summary post.

In this set of dotted beads, used CiM’s Vintage Rose as the base with CiM Peace white dots. The spacers are pure Vintage Rose.


On a base of CiM’s Swan Ltd Run, layered silver glass dots were added and capped with clear portals. There is a golden yellow shift in Swan rather than staying as a white hue.


CiM - Creation Is Messy’s new Sea Glass Ltd Run is a pale green misty opal that melted smoothly and worked well with Double Helix silver glass to create wispy petals within these Waterlily beads. The spacers are Sea Glass. and CiM Peacock Feathers.



New CiM - Creation is Messy’s Swan Ltd Run decorated with mixed frit. This glass melted smoothly with no issues except that it didn’t stay white for me. Not sure if it was due to having other beads in the kiln with reduced silver glass or if the extended session caused it to turn yellow.


This crystal shaped bead were created on a base of CiM Ballerina with Glass Diversions Himalayan Rose frit. 


New CiM - Creation is Messy’s Goldfish Ltd Run decorated with Lumiere Lusters Picante glitter encased in Zephyr clear.  This glass melted smoothly with no issues. 



New CiM - Creation is Messy’s Goldfish Ltd Run decorated with Double Helix silver glass and encased in Zephyr clear.  This glass melted smoothly with no issues. 


I was so sad to open the kiln and find a compatibility issue between CiM’s new Pink Lemonade and Val Cox Trickster frit (96 COE). I made the lovely round beads and encased them in a thin layer of clear glass only to get lots of little cracks in the final beads. You may think it was the encasement, but the issue was confirmed when one bead without clear glass split in two pieces. The pink is so pretty, but I will avoid any non 104 COE frit as it was just too much of a difference.


A core of CiM Adriatic Ltd run with layers of clear and silver glass created this bicone focal bead. Spacers are pure Adriatic.
So that sums Round 5 of test results. Check back next week for another post of glassy goodness!
