CiM Tester Feedback

  • Serenity is a medium transparent teal. We engineered it to replace [our sold out but still sought after] Breeze Ltd Run.
Serenity is a new color to the 104 palette. It is similar to Aegean, but more saturated and slightly darker. – Paula Schertz
Next we have Serenity - a medium transparent teal. Now, CiM has done a lot of batches of transparent glass in the blue-green spectrum. Like, a lot. But I'm not mad at that. I love the variety of color. This particular shade sits right in the middle - it's bluer than both Aegean and Poolside, and greener than Zoe, Pulsar, Blue-yah! and Birthstone. It's medium in saturation, making it a lovely color to layer - my favorite thing to do! Read more at Kandice's blog. – Kandice Seeber
Serenity is a very good match for the now impossible to find Breeze Ltd Run colour that came out in spring 2013. – Jolene Wolfe
Serenity is not as saturated as CiM Great Bluedini but it is around the same shade of teal. It is a great deal bluer than Effetre Light Teal and is both darker and greener than Effetre Light Aqua. – Melanie Graham

"When you etch them you can see the difference."
Cathy Beaumont
"Serenity is a gorgeous medium teal transparent. It's a beautiful shade of teal blue and really fills a hole in my palette. Although it is a blue-green and does react like one, its reactivity is far gentler than other colours in the same hue range, making it possible to use this colour with Ivory and other sulfur colours without significant discolouration. I found Serenity nice to work with. It can boil if you let it get too hot, and you can see some small bubbles in one of the spacer beads, but on the whole, bubbling problems with Serenity are avoidable by working cool."

"I will never tire of Creation is Messy making beautiful blues. This heart bead was made with Serenity which is a transparent blue teal. It’s more blue than Aegean and it’s utterly beautiful. No shocking, bubbling or scumming - just smooth blue loveliness." Read more at Laura's tumblr.

"In these big hole beads, I wanted to see how Serenity would pair with silver glass and encasement. I used Double Helix Psyche in dots and stripes encased with Double Helix Aether clear using Serenity as the canvas. Aether brings out more green in the silver glass under reduction so next time I will also try it with Double Helix Zephyr to see if the color stays more blue under the encasement."

"This is a beautiful transparent teal, it is slightly darker than Aegean. It makes a perfect base for the lusters. It etches well, which gives it a glow that is difficult to capture on film."

"Serenity is a Dark Aqua with a smidgen of green, but not enough to push it into Teal territory. It is a colour that is usually called Blue Zircon in the commercial bead biz. You don't see it nearly often enough, in my humble opinion - as it is a truly beautiful colour. There is no shift in colour from heating - what you see is what you get. For comparison's sake, from the BOTTOM, Serenity, Effetre's light and dark teal - just a bit greener, and CiM 508 Leaky Pen - quite a bit darker." Read more at DragonJools blog.

"It is another brilliantly behaved colour in a hot flame which also suits me well. Not a sign of boiling of bubbles at all." Read more at Kitzbitz Art Glass' blog.

"There's not much to say about the workability of Serenity - I experienced no bubbles or scum [a nice departure from most transparent blues and greens], no shocking, no spreading or bleeding and no pitting. It's not too stiff, and doesn't seem to react to much - it's just your basic, easy glass." Read more at Kandice's blog.

"Serenity is a splashy, tide pool blue. A dark version of Poolside, the new transparent color boasts a hint more green than Pulsar. A lovely crisp, clean glass to showcase frit and a variety of decoration. No shocking or bubbling occurred during testing." Read more at Heather's blog.
Heather Sellers
"Serenity melted smoothly with no shockiness, and a small amount of bubbles. Kryptonite is beautiful encased with Serenity, a beautiful light teal shade. It is a gorgeous shade of light teal on Peace and a darker teal color on Dark Ivory. On the Dark Ivory it has a dark rim around the dot from a color reaction. It was a pretty base for the Kalera’s Romance frit blend with organic colors. Serenity with silver foil and Poseidon frit blend is very pretty with blues, greens, and browns."
Paula Schertz
"Described by CiM as a transparent teal, it's in the same family of colours as Aegean ... but on side by side comparison you can clearly see that Serenity has more depth of colour. This melted really well without issue. The Fremen dots do appear to have 'sunk' a little, but the edges are still crisp. Silvered ivory sat well with no reaction and it was an easy glass to encase with."
