CiM Tester Feedback

  • We have many requests for an evergreen color with blue tones.
Juniper is very close to Sherwood but is just a bit more olive. – Gloria Sevey
"Juniper reminds me a lot of another Limited Run called Army Men, except that Juniper is more on the blue side and maybe a bit lighter than that colour. This colour is very similar in hue to ASK Aloe Vera / Kugler Isar Blue, although it is a touch lighter and less reactive. Here is Juniper with Effetre Green Cave, CiM Commando, CiM Eucalyptus, CiM Split Pea, and Effetre Moss Green. It is darker and bluer than Split Pea, and is both brighter and bluer than Commando."

Juniper is a good palette alternative for Kugler Aloe Vera/Isar Blue with the added benefit that unlike Aloe Vera/Isar Blue, it does not react negatively with Ivory and other sulfur colours. – Melanie Graham

"In the pics you can see a bigger bead which base is half Effetre White and half Effetre Dark Ivory. Next there are three basic beads, upper made with reducing flame, middle oxidizing flame and last with neutral flame. Then there is a bead covered deliberately badly with clear, and a black bead with dots over it. Juniper is a well behaving glass. It does not bleed very much, when covered badly with clear glass. Juniper dots over black are perfect." Read more at Maikki's blog.

"Juniper is a darker, bluer green. Similar kind of tone – another good organic colour. Again, it has darker streaks in it. I found the rod could be shocky when going back into the flame after cooling, and the first time in it peeled a bit at the cut end – it was fine when still a bit warm. When molten it was very smooth and viscous. . . .  Here there’s quite a lot of black webbing in the New Ivory and a dark line between it and the Juniper in only some places. " Read more at Heather's blog.

"Juniper is a rich streaky dark green opaque shade. It puts me in mind of Sherwood. I used simple parallel mashers to create these beads. The mashers have created concentric chill marks on the surface of the leaves which I have not flame polished out as I think it adds an interesting and subtle texture to the finished design."

"Juniper is a well-behaved, somewhat streaky green with no overtones of yellow - in the bluer sage family of greens. It doesn't remind me of anything, so it may be a unique color to the glass palette." Read more at DragonJools blog.

"Juniper is very close to Sherwood. I really like this green, it is a bit streaky like most greens are."

"Unlike CiM Army Men, Juniper does not yellow with the addition of silver. Reducing and encasing silver on top of Juniper makes the silver into a smooth silvery blanket that turns blue at its edges." Read more at Melanie's blog.

"Juniper is a pine needle green. A nice stairstep darker in shade from Turtle Power, the color has a green-blue hue when compared with CiM Olive." Read more at Heather's blog.
Heather Sellers
"Juniper is a a rich green, not quite earthy enough to be Olive, it is brighter/lighter. Juniper melted with no shocking and was very smooth. Here shown decorated with Peace polka dots, and you can see Juniper has nice crisp edges."
