Messy Tester's Feedback

  • Testers were divided on whether or not Sangre & Oz make the perfect holiday red & green colors.
"Another great Christmas color that was just recently introduced by CiM – Messy Color is a transparent green called 'Oz', which as it turns out is a perfect green to pair with Sangre to produce the green and red that is the hallmark of most Christmas themes." Read more at the Frantz Art Glass blog. – Patricia Frantz
"That red [Sangre] certainly does pop. And it's [Oz] a nice bright green. But in my mind - holly leaves are darker, and berries darker and bluer." Read more at DragonJools blog. – Dwyn Tomlinson
"I think that Oz is a perfect Christmas green, but while I love the Sangre it has too many wonderfully interesting properties and variations to be a perfect Christmas red." – Bonnie Polinski
"I love working with these two colors and worked correctly, they are the perfect Christmas colors." – Chris Haussler
"Definitely Christmas colors. I don’t usually make 'theme' beads, but if I were to make something for Christmas these colors look perfect." – Gail Witt
"They are a good color combination for Christmas colors. I love Oz. It is a great Christmas color." – Jan Whitesel-Keeton
"Yes with Oz, but not so much with Sangre." – Kathy Coon
"Sangre is the perfect Christmas red, but I would go for a darker green, same tone." – Elizabeth Long
"Yes, they're perfect! Oz is a great dense emerald green, and Sangre is the perfect shade and density of 'Santa' red." – Renee Wiggins
"Yes, Sangre & Oz are dead on perfect." – Starleen Colon
"Sangre will probably be the best red and most true to Christmas Red. To me though, Oz just didn’t make it to a true Christmas Green. I think there it is more of a dirty green than the vibrancy from Effetre Dark Emerald Green." – Sue Stewart
"I do not believe that Sangre and Oz are indicative to Christmas – they are too dense, even for spacers." – Vonna Maslanka
"Oz is a green transparent which is rich in color. It has less blue tones in it than Effetre Dark Emerald and slightly richer/deeper in color with less of a yellow tint than Effetre Dark Grass Green. Even though it is richer in color it is not so dark that you miss the beautiful color. Oz has an 'evergreen' tone to it that really does make it a believable color to use for leaves, trees, wreaths, etc." – Bethany Lemasters

"This set of 9 goddess series beads was created on a base of CiM's emerald transparent glass, Oz, with layered dots of Effetre Dark Ivory and a mixture of silver glasses. Double Helix's Kronos and Olympia Rain silver glasses create the multicolored portals captured under each drop of clear glass." See more at Darlene's blog.

"A wonderful rich emerald - the colour that emeralds wish they were! Beads of plain Oz are fairly dark, but the bead here is over white. It really is a wonderful transparent green." Read more at DragonJools blog.
