color experiments

CiM Harvest and Chartreuse

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,

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.
