“This bead kebab shows where about Chateau falls within the CiM palette, something quite close to [the now sold out] Fostoria Ltd Run. From left to right you can see Dusk, Fostoria, Chateau and Sepia.” Read more at Kitzbitz Art Glass’ blog. – Jolene Wolfe

"According to CiM's website, this color was created to be similar to Sepia, but without the reddish undertone. It fits the bill nicely - it's a true pale brown without any reddish or greenish undertones, and works nicely as an encasing layer for any browns or creams. One thing I need to mention is that this glass can scum easily if you heat it too fast. Work it under a cooler flame, and when using it as stringer, don't let it get too melty or it will bubble up. It's not too stiff, so there's not much of an issue getting it to melt." Read more at Kandice's blog.

"Chateau is a gorgeous transparent light brown. Less yellow than Effetre’s transparent Light Brown 018 and less pink than CiM Sepia, it has a slight greyness to it. A smooth glass to work with and not too stiff. Etches beautifully. Love it!" Read more of Laura's testing.

“Chateau is a transparent champagne. When placed in a side by side comparison with the golden undertones of Sepia, Chateau has a faint, woody hue.”
