CiM Harvest and Chartreuse

Posted on

I tested two colours for Creation is Messy recently – Harvest and Chartreuse. Here are my results! Also I’ve come to realize that this website needs a bit of a makeover and some updating, so I will be working on that. I’d really like to get back to blogging about my glasswork and colour experiments so stay tuned! These spacer beads are available through my Etsy shop, http://madeforyoulampwork.etsy.com/

This was a beautiful buttery soft and creamy opaque orange. It gave me some really pretty blush as I worked it (the glass was not all one tone but gave me some nice variation). It also etched beautifully.

This is a really brilliant bright acid green. A tiny bit shocky and bubbly to work with but I am never “gentle” with glass – I tend to go right into the flame with it. And I found it manageable once I got the rod going. This glass only etched very slightly.

Creation is Messy Colour Previews

Posted on

The new colours are (almost?) out from Creation is Messy! I know that Frantz should have them all in stock by mid/late February. I was lucky enough to get my hands on them a little early so here are some previews. Definitely some of these that I will be adding to my regular lineup. Are there any here that you would like to see more of? More photos coming soon as I still have quite a few rods to try out 🙂 My favorites so far are Aegean, Frozen, Duck Egg, Tortoise, Nectar, and Pollen.
