"Peat Moss is an olive glass with strong brown earthy tones. It sits nicely between Effetre's Kelp and CiM's Moijto. I started working in a hotter flame and it melted like a dream - just like butter. But I did start to notice some micro bubbles forming on the bead, but not the rod at all. Afterwards I made some smaller beads in a more moderate flame with no issues at all. Could be that this does not like prolonged heat ... or possibly may need to adjust flame settings. I don't have enough glass to test throughly." – Trudi Doherty

Peat Moss appears much darker by itself than it does when layered with the Mint Chip.

Messy Tester's Feedback

  • Peat Moss is unique to the 104 lampworking world and fills a gap in the color palette.
Peat Moss does come out dark in photographs and I had to adjust the tones slightly to show on screen what I saw with my eye. – Trudi Doherty

"When you put this next to the bright greens, it looks brown, but on its own, you would just classify it as a green in the olive family. Peat Moss was also inclined to form lots of small bubbles." Read more at DragonJools blog.

"I loved the clarity of this color. One thing to keep in mind though is that if you heat too fast, it might bubble a bit. Heat gently, and if haze or scum appears on your gather you can burn it off by gently heating more. That being said, I was able to make the sample and the spacers without much trouble. Once pulled into stringer, layering was simple."  Read more at Kandice's blog.

"I tend to use mainly opaque glass so this was a bit different for me, the glass was easy to work with a few bubbles but no scumming. It is a good base for stormed Ekho, with Raku on the acorn the colours were pale but pretty. Not a unique colour- I likened it to Effetre Olive, although it's a tad more brown."

"Peat Moss is a deep amber toned green, a very classy, a unique and welcome addition to the 104 palette." Read more at Kitzbitz Art Glass' blog.
