CiM colour testing: Tiger Lily, Poppy, Heartthrob, Cinnamon Jelly

Creation Is Messy have sent me some more colours to test!

This post is for some juicy reds and oranges.

Tiger Lily


Tiger Lily is a semi-opaque/semi-transparent orange (whichever way round you prefer to describe these!). I used a core of clear for these gremlins, so you can see where that changes or doesn’t change the body colour. Here you can see there’s a difference between the body and lips, but the body is still opaque enough not to see through. It is also streakier.



Poppy is a bright light red, also semi-opaque. It came out fairly uniform here, whether over clear or not.



Heartthrob is a darker semi-opaque red, more of a blood red. This colour darkens more under halogens than the others, so is a tad brighter in sunlight, but still darker than Poppy. Again quite uniform in colour.

Cinnamon Jelly


Cinnamon Jelly is streakier and more transparent than the others – you can see that a bit at the corners of the mouth. It’s a dark orange-red.



Here’re the red gremlins side-by-side.


I also used these four colours to make dots over Effetre white. Tiger Lily and Poppy had a bit of a tendency to bubble on the rod as I was making dots, which are the smeary ones. Possibly should have done that cooler. I had the base shape a little smaller on the other two, so they fit the press better and were worked less.


Side by side, which stops the white bases melding into the background.


I made a pair of nuggets in each colour as well. You can see that Cinnamon Jelly is definitely the streakiest, and also the least opaque when used solidly like this. Tiger Lily and Poppy are lovely and bright, and again Heartthrob can look a little brighter in sunlight.

ETA: Here’s a pic in sunlight.


You can see Heartthrob is lighter, though we also have a problem with them all being oversaturated by the camera… The Heartthrob gremlin on its own is a reasonably accurate representation.
