CiM Tester Feedback

  • How does Appletini compare to other 104 greens?
"Appletini is pretty similar to Effetre Pale Emerald Green [green batch]. I believe Frantz has a slightly blue lot and a slightly green lot. I also tested Appletini against Vetrofond Light Grass Green. Appletini is a bit more green than the other 2 colors, but close in hue." – Genea Crivello

“These colored transparents are really really stiff, and when you’re encasing with them you really have to get them nice and hot. And don’t drag the glass- just lay it on top of stuff. Don’t drag it over, gently lay it on top. . . . Because if you try too hard, and you drag this really stiff transparent, you’re going to smudge your designs.” Watch Maria's YouTube demo encasing copper cut outs with Appletini.

“The beauty of these Appletini Styx is that when you apply your dichro, it will already be encased. Not only that, but because of the rounded sides, when you reheat... the flame will not be able to reach around and burn out the dichro, eliminating one of the major causes of failure with dichroic work.” Find out more about CiM Styx.

"My first go-to color for making 'beach glass' beads is Appletini. In rod form, this color is a little more intense than the traditional pale emerald tones, but when it is etched, it makes a beautiful, velvety bottle-green color."

Appletini with DH Psyche Light. "The silver glass was reduced to bring out the iridescent metallic hues of blues, green, purples and pinks. The metallic bling seems to shift in hues when looking from different angles." See more at Darlene's blog.

"Appletini encases silver colors beautifully without bubbles or scum."
Sue Stewart
"Appletini melts like butter with little to no bubbles. It reminds me of a crisp green apple or maybe a classic green Coke bottle... depending on the light. And it combines with silver glass like magic!" Read more at Darlene's blog.

"Appletini is a bright, fresh green that leans closer to yellow... sort of like a Granny Smith apple. It's great for Spring, and the silver foil muddles on the surface... hiding the true color of the glass underneath. The Silver wire left light trails in the glass when melted, which is a nice effect." Read more at Melissa's blog.

"Appletini is a LOT like the handpulled Effetre Pale Emerald, except it is perhaps a little more saturated [seriously, not much though] than that colour and it is a little stiffer. Like Pale Emerald, Appletini does not change the colour of silver when used to encase it, and is a fairly stable, minimally reactive colour." Read more at Melanie's blog.

"This shade falls somewhere between Effetre Pale Emerald and Effetre Yellow Green. It fits nicely into the 104 coe palette - not an exact replica of anything, but close enough to substitute if you desire. The main difference between CiM Appletini and its Effetre counterparts is that CiM's glass tends to be less scummy, clearer and a little stiffer. This shade isn't as stiff as some of CiM's transparents can be, so it was great for layering and encasing." Read more at Kandice's blog.
