Apple Pie is a pale minty green. Much lighter than the new Turtle Power, the color is a more vibrant mint than 50's Kitchen or Primavera. No shocking or bubbling occurred during testing.
Turtle Power is an earthy green. The color is slightly lighter than Meadow, with a hint of emerald. When paired with silver reactive frit, the glass remained clean and crisp. No shocking or bubbling occurred during testing.
Juniper is a pine needle green. A nice stair step darker in shade from Turtle Power, the color has a green-blue hue when compared to CiM Olive. No shocking or bubbling occurred during testing.
Colors from Left to Right: Chartreuse, Jelly Bean, Elphaba, Pixie, Blarney Stone
Buttermilk is a warm opaque cream. The glass is as smooth as its name through a beadroller, yet holds crisp detail nicely. A lovely alternative to Effetre Light Ivory. No shocking or bubbling occurred during testing.

Colors from Left to Right: Spook, Enchanted, Venus, Siren, Poolside
Venus initially looks to be a pale pink in rod form, however when the glass meets the flame a light peachy amber hue emerges. Light hazing occurred during testing. See photo above for bead sample.
Spook is a heavenly white. The glass remains clean and crisp when paired with other CiM colors. Over a Effetre Pastel White base, the glass mimics Mother of Pearl. No shocking or bubbling occurred during testing. The glass does not reveal any hint of red, other than a pale pink glow when paired with purple. The glass becomes murky when combined with Rubino Oro.
Enchanted is a pale pink lavender. When compared to Effetre Transparent Dark Lavender, the new CiM color has a lighter plum hue (see sample photo below). Light hazing occurred during testing but cleared up as the glass became molten.
Colors from Left to Right: CiM Enchanted, Effetre Trans. Dk Lavender
Siren is a pale transparent green. The glass seems to color shift during the final flamepolish on the hollow example bead. During the initial testing of the ribbed round, the glass remained clean and crisp in color. There was a bit of initial hazing during the flamework process. No shocking or bubbling occurred.
Poolside is an exciting new addition to the CiM family. The vibrant transparent teal has an electric look in bright light. The glass held crisp lines during sculpting and the color remained clean when paired with fine silver and silver reactive glass.

The kids woke up bright and early, dawned their kevlar lined hazmat suits, and ventured outside to gather up some zombie squirrel eyeballs. Like picking up pebbles on the beach, the plagued peepers just roll right out of their little eye sockets. A bountiful harvest indeed! After a quick rinse to remove the crusties, the petrified eyeballs are ready to be strung and worn in a Halloween jewelry design. They measure approximately 10 mm in diameter. Just message me on FB if you are interested in a set.
Due to recent advancements in squirrel to human translation technology, we know the squirrels are just as disgusted by the zombie plague: "Gus, you're hideous dude! Oh look, more delicious pine nuts..."
Until a cure is found, the public has been advised to lock their doors and hide their mixed nuts. Feeding wildlife and loitering on park benches is strictly prohibited within the hot zone. Be safe and survive. This has been a public service announcement on the ongoing ZSA (Zombie Squirrel Apocalypse).
