Colour testing: CiM It Ain’t Easy Being, Flax, Hazelnut Mousse, Jupiter Storm

Here are the other CiM limited editions I tested at the weekend.

It Ain’t Easy Being

Greeeeeen! Not a Kermit green though, a light blue-tinged green.

I made a gremlin! (Over a core of clear). Marine behaved fine thus far making the little hearts on top of this green.

Here’s a comparison between It Ain’t Easy Being and Mint Chip, which was in the last lot of limited editions. The new green is a bluer one.

Flax

Flax is a very pale yellow transparent.

I did the heart to see if it did the faux boro effect with iris gold frit, like Effetre straw yellow. No! Ah well, bit of a fugly heart as a result. (The little hearts have marine or green lantern over It Ain’t Easy Being).

Hazelnut Mousse and Jupiter Storm

These are another pair in the beige range. Hazelnut mousse is on the left here. It strikes a little, as visible on one of the spacers, and is a warm beige. The heart with Double Helix psyche dots has gone a darker brown, as you would expect.

Jupiter storm is the interesting one. It starts as a grey beige and strikes to an orangey colour. Good for silver glass – the psyche dots are sharp and have little outlines. Unusually, it hasn’t fumed from the silver glass – the orange is from striking.

I made a gremlin too – this angle is to show that the psyche heart is right next to a more unstruck part that is still grey – no colour change from being next to the silver glass.

Gremlin! I like this colour – it works like Effetre tongue pink, but is sufficiently different. Tongue pink is white when unstruck, not greyish, and it strikes to a less orange hue than jupiter storm does. Tongue pink also fumes much more.

More to come next time – I have a fair few reds and oranges to test too.
