Effetre 912 Violet

Effetre 912 Violet. Violet is a perfectly nice, easy to use medium transparent reddish-purple. Well behaved doesn't bubble or scum , very nice to use.  The three beads are a self-coloured, that is a solid coloured Violet bead, layered over white, and the third one in the very interesting shade of purple is the Violet layered over periwinkle. Pro-tip, nearly all the transparent purples look amazing when layered over periwinkle.

Effetre 915 Pale Pink

Effetre 915 "Pale Pink"  Hint of Pink or Polar Pink  might have been a better name. This is a very subtle pink. It's a striking pink but you don't seem to really see the effects when it's hot. It just come out of the kiln a variegated, very subtle, off-white, slightly Rosy colour. Which is not to say that it doesn't have its uses, but if you're looking for a Pepto-Bismol, it's not going to make your heart sing

Effetre 526 Sky Blue Opalino

No idea how long I  have  had this package of Effetre 526 Sky Blue Opalino. Rather a long time, I suspect. It comes out very pale, like glacial icy blue white. I think that at one point I would have been rather disappointed with this colour, but now I really like the subtlety of it. The more you try to get more light on it to emphasize its translucency, the whiter it looks. When it's not backlit it looks pale blue and when you put a lot of light behind it it looks like whiteish blue.

Double Helix RX-783

RX-783, from #doublehelixglass This is a technical glass that comes as a transparent mid-sapphire blue, and goes transparent purple as you work it, leaving some streaking of the blue, depending on how you work it.
Some of the beads are a core of Zephyr,  some are encased with Zephyr.
Very, very pretty.

Double Helix Hyperion

Hyperion is a dual glass, it both strikes and reduces. The 3 beads are struck once and then reduced, and encased (Zephyr), the other piece is struck and reduced.

There was no sun when I shot this, so some photos were taken with a flash. You can see that the flash punches through the reflective surface and shows you more of the colour.

CiM 321 Summer Haze

CiM 321 Summer Haze A misty opal in a pale straw yellow. Goes a bright lemon yellow when hot, but reverts to straw when cool. How it looks depends a lot on the light. see other pics. Such a nice pale color, more of a neutral than a yellow. I'd like to play more with this one.

CiM 576 Peacock Feather

CiM 576 Peacock Feather. This one's surprised me a little by being a little bit more subdued, grayish, Smokey, than I anticipated.
There's a lot of these lovely blue Greens in the latest batch of new CiM colours. I'm really enjoying the subtle variations in colours, and I think there's a lot of potential for doing shaded effects.😍😍😍


e explain to me why the Google speech-to-text thinks that smokey and greens should be capitalized in the middle of a sentence? But not this sentence. Smokey. Greens. Smokey green Smokey green Smokey greens. Makes no sense.😝
