I have been doing some colour testing for Kathy of CIM (Creation is Messy). This is the first of what I hope to be many blog posts about their colours. This is CIM Chartreuse and 104 Parrot Green.
I found the CIM Chartreuse to bit a bit bubbly but even with the bubble in the rod it was not shocky at all, I found it easy to work with. These were made on a cricket torch with propane and two oxygen concentrators Y’d together. The left hand beads are encased in Moretti Super Clear, parrot green on the bottom and chartreuse on the top in this photo. The beads to the right of those have a dot pattern in clear, which did not show at all on the chartreuse. You can see it faintly on the parrot green. To the right of those the beads have been rolled once in silver lake frit. I find it to be one of the most reactive frits, there for a good one to use in colour sampling. The far right hand beads have fine silver wire (32 gauge) wrapped around them.
The Chartreuse is a pretty green very close to Parrot Green but a little more translucent.
