CiM Tester Feedback

  • Charcoal is an extremely dark transparent grey.
Frantz's batch of Charcoal is an extremely dark transparent grey. Tuffnell's first batch of Charcoal in 2009 was a blue based formula. In 2010, we shipped the grey version to Tuffnell as well.
Messy Tuxedo is more black than both of these batches.

Darlene Collette’s beads with Charcoal & DH Aurae were featured in Bead Trends magazine.
Darlene Collette used Charcoal with shards, dots and wraps of Triton.

"Double Helix Aurae fine silver frit was reduced bringing a metallic bling to the bead. There is no fuming of the bead keeping the CiM Charcoal gray clean and classic." See more at Darlene's blog.

"Charcoal on white shows its true nature - when melted very thin, it shows a very nice, pure grey, with no overtones of blue, purple, or anything else." Read more at DragonJools blog.

"The first [bead on the left] is Charcoal which has an ethereal smokey quality to it. The colour has remained quite black but become quite transparent." Read more at Kitzbitz Art Glass' blog.

"I recently discovered a reaction between Charcoal and Effetre Periwinkle. It's rather fab, a bright blue central line surrounded by silver and a little blurring into the Charcoal."
Sue Reynolds
"Silver glass loves Charcoal, and Charcoal totally seems to love it back." Read more at Melanie's blog.
