A soft opaque green with a touch of gray.




"Weeping Willow is a beautiful, soft shade of green with a touch of grey to it. It’s a little streaky, but that’s opaque greens for you. It’s a trouble-free glass to use and I really like the colour." Read more at Laura's tumblr. – Laura Sparling

"Weeping Willow is a soft green with a hint of grey. It is a little streaky but it's not too noticeable in the final bead. The barrel bead is a base of Weeping Willow with Tahitian Pearl stringer."
Caroline Davis
"This pair of heart beads are a Weeping Willow/Aiko combination with a wrap of silvered ivory stringer to separate them. As with Troi, you can see some striations and streaks that give clues to how additional glass was added to form the shape. I think it looks very pretty! Weeping Willow does not seem to be affected by fuming from the silvered ivory stringer." Read more at Kitzbitz Art Glass' blog.

"Two new beautiful colours from CiM that go well together: Peppermint Cream & Weeping Willow. Weeping Willow is a pretty green, close to Spring Meadow but has more yellow tones. I made base beads with each and put polka dots with the other, notice how Weeping Willow spreds over Peppermint Cream, but on it's couterpart the colours behave normally. In the rod Weeping Willow seemed to be sensitive to being briefly cooled and reheated, so once used I popped my rod on top of my kiln to keep it warm."

"Weeping Willow is a muted green. The opaque glass reminds me of my Mom’s split pea soup. Easily shaped in a bead roller, the glass can also hold form when decorating with layered dots. The glass is lighter than CiM Olive, but more gray then CiM Meadow. No shocking or bubbling occurred during testing."
Heather Sellers
"A milky sage green colour that makes a great colour for leaves or a subtle green. Would also compliment the neutral hues very well. Seen here with Effetre Light Lavender Opaque."
