CiM Tester Feedback

  • We have frequent requests for a transparent denim blue.
Denim exhibits the perfect color of denim blue with a nice balance of gray, but without any green. No shocking occurred during testing. Light bubbling/fizzing occurred, but quickly corrected itself. – Heather Sellers

"Greys are usually very light when layered thinly, even when they are dark in a rod. Anyway I decided to test the shades Mockingbird 822 and blue gray Denim 541 with some older grays I happen to have in the shelf. Other colours are Effetre 086 and 088 and CiM Twilight. Well, besides Denim all the glasses diluted to almost nonexistence, and Denim is classified as blue at CiM's homepage, but when layered heavy, we can see the different shades well. Eff 086 turns to brown, Eff 088 lightly to green. Mockingbird is neutral true gray, Denim blue gray of course and Twilight another true gray, close to Mockingbird, just a bit warmer."

"Denim is a very dark, transparent smokey blue, that seems to shift a bit from a blue to a slightly greener shade after being worked. Maybe it just depends on the angle of the light. " Read more at DragonJools' blog.

"Denim is a nice smooth glass to work with. It didn't shock, pit, bleed or bubble at all, and it's not too stiff for layering - which is really nice! I actually really loved how it melted in when placed on top of the Blue Steel, on clear-encased black - it created very crisp flowers. Denim is definitely a winner in my book. There's no other color like it that I know of, and it fits right in to a neutral palette." Read more at Kandice's blog.

"Denim is a transparent dark steel blue with just a very subtle hint of green to it. It’s more saturated than Mockingbird and more blue than Slate is. It doesn’t fizz like Leaky Pen does and it’s a nice consistency to work with. A really lovely glass." Read more at Laura's tumblr.
