A Study of Pinks and Purple Tones - CiM - Creation Is Messy Limited Runs

 In this blog post, I am revisiting a few pinks and purple CiM - Creation Is Messy glass offerings.

CiM’s Inca Rose Ltd Run is a cloudy pale transparent pink in CiM’s  offerings of limited runs.
This set of zulu shaped beads was created with a base of Inca Rose with a sprinkling of Val Cox’s Songbird frit.

As with other cloudy transparent, I preheated the rod to reduce the stockiness and allowed the glass to melt smoothly.
The bead on the end shows the Inca Rose base color for comparison.

CiM’s Rosaline Pink Ltd Run is cloudy transparent pale pink that is a nice neutral glass with pink tones. I have used it in the past and despite it’s stockiness, I was pleased with the resulting color as a base for frit beads.

This set of tile beads combined Rosaline Pink with Val Cox Moonflower frit. The plain bead provides the comparison of the base glass.

Finally, CiM’s Yours Truly Ltd Run is a pinkish purple transparent with a wide variety of color results, depending on your working atmosphere. 

For my set of frit beads, I used Val Cox’s Oleander frit. This is a beautiful blend of gold pinks transparent and translucent frits, with an accent of spring green. 

As a result, I see the base CiM Glass in more pink tones than purple. These photos were taken under an OTT light for the most natural tones.

Although the CiM - Creation Is Messy website shows Rosaline Pink as Sold Out, it is still available through Nortel Glass in Toronto.
Reach out to Jennifer or Jean at Nortel as they  still have stock of some of Val Cox frit used on these beads that may not be available from Val's site directly.

Be quick as some stock is low and going quick.
