Messy Tester's Feedback

  • What does the name Journey mean?
One of our shipments was delayed during the summer of 2011. When the container was opened, it appeared some of the cartons had been gnawed on. We received a notice from US Customs that it was being sent to a facility to determine the nature of the "critters" inside. Turns out that the critter was a kitty! We welcome our little illegal immigrant to the States. The cat was adopted by an employee at said facility and named "Journey." We named this color in the kitty's honor.
  • Journey has a purplish hue in rod form but generally works out to a grey color.
  • Some testers reported that Journey has a tendency to boil.
"Journey is sensitive to boiling like Sapphire. Work further back in the flame to avoid this." – Genea Crivello-Knable
"I found Journey to be a little less user-friendly than some of the other recent CiM transparents because of its tendency to boil. Working it up high in the flame helps manage the boiling problem, but on the whole I prefer to use colours that don't need this kind of special treatment."

"This glittering set was created with a base of Journey Ltd Run on which Double Helix Ekho fine silver glass frit was generously sprinkled. Each bead was then reduced to bring out the glorious metallic bling in hues of blue, gold, copper and rose!" Read more at Darlene's blog.

"Journey looks like a transparent grey - at an angle or just handling it, most of the time - but stick a sheet of white paper behind it, and it's 'Huh? I have a rod of transparent light purple?' However, it works up to be a warm, smokey grey with a brownish overtone." Read more at DragonJools blog.

"This photo shows a single spacer which was worked with more propane [slightly reducing flame] and worked longer. You can see the brown streaks starting due to the hotter reduction flame. Double spacers were worked in a neutral flame. I think that depending on the torch chemistry, it will go brown in the presence of too much propane."
