CiM Tester Feedback

  • Charlotte & Paris are very similar transparent pinks [both are mismelts of the Sakura formula].
Our testers agreed that neither batch could pass as Sakura, but they disagreed on whether or not they were similar enough to give them the same item number/name.
It has been our experience that, especially when it comes to very expensive glasses, artists want to know that they are re-purchasing exactly the same color. We chose to market these two batches separately to ensure that customers can choose exactly the hue they prefer.
"Charlotte and Paris – is there any difference? These colours look the same in rod and bead form to me." – Julie Fountain
"These sample beads look more different than the rods, I don't think Charlotte & Paris would pass for each other even if they were the same formula." – Jolene Wolfe
"In bead form, Paris is just a tad more saturated than Charlotte. They are very close. To my eyes, they are both a little more saturated- especially with a bit of orange- than Blush." – Gloria Sevey
"In my opinion, Paris and Charlotte are a perfect color match." – Heather Sellers
"I love Charlotte. It looked indistinguishable from Paris as a clear but it's pinker and a little more saturated when etched." – Celia Friedman

"Charlotte is a warm pink that is saturated enough to hold its own. I don’t think we’ve had anything else in 104 quite this colour. Here’s a comparison with a couple of other pinks I had to hand – Lauscha transparent pink is a baby pink and cooler in tone than Charlotte. I think the very pale one is Effetre rose quartz 067 – it is definitely Effetre, and their transparent pink tends to be a little peachier most of the time. You can see how well the colour shows in the etched Charlotte." Read more at Heather's blog.

"I wanted to see how Charlotte and Experimental would react to 99% fine silver wire. It encased with a few expected bubbles but certainly stayed a true pink color. Very pretty." Read more at Darlene's blog.

"As with many pink transparents, Charlotte and Paris like to be worked on the cool side, with less fuel than normal. Work them gently to avoid that pesky bubbling and scumming. It's a bit of a balancing act keeping these cool enough not to bubble, but warm enough not to crack. Staying on the higher edge of the flame works best for me." Read more at Kandice's blog.

"Charlotte is a gorgeous girly pink, a beautiful shade. It melted well too. A few scummy bubbles if worked too hot, but you get that with many pinks to be fair. So I worked a little cooler and found it to be well behaved . . . better than most Effetre pinks!"
Trudi Doherty
"The glass is smooth, bubble free and a great consistency, making it fab for encasing with. Don’t get it too hot too fast, though, as it is prone to boiling and nobody wants to wreck a bead with boily bubbles, do they?" Read more at Laura's tumblr.
