CiM Tester Feedback

  • Dragon is a mismelt of the Tortoise formula, which was mixed in response to requests for a "green version" of Canyon de Chelly.

"These headpins were all made with one rod of Dragon! The range of greens, blues and purples this glass is capable of just blows my mind.
I have to admit, when I first saw this color I almost passed it up. The swatches I saw weren’t all that interesting. But I was in the market for a turquoise that didn’t get livery so I decided to give it a shot. All I can say is wow!"

"Dragon is a blushed avocado green bearing many similarities to Ogre, but with a more intense saturation of sage green. Easy to shape and extremely forgiving. No bubbling or shocking occurred during testing." Read more at Heather's blog.

"As it cools, it turns opaque light blue, and then continues to cool back to green. Overall - it is primarily green with some blue streakiness and some potential purpliness." Read more at DragonJools blog.

"In rod form Dragon looks like a flat pastel greyish green. After being worked in the flame it comes alive, becoming stunning striated mass of subtle colours from warm grey through pale pastel sage green and even some pale browns." Read more at Kitzbitz Art Glass' blog.
