Enough of a rant. I have been suffering from a nasty cold/flu and have not been up to torching, so nothing new to me for the time being, and me with new glass, too, so here are some of the ones I have lying around.
CiM mermaid doesn't do much interacting that I can see, except with copper leaf, ivory, and EDP. With copper leaf it goes black and crusted on its own and blue under encasement. I like this effect. I like the effect I got with the triton unencased. The oddball silver glass bead is with aurae. With ivory that grey line comes back. Not a surprise. With EDP, the purple pops and the mermaid separates. Neat. I like the purple and green combination of the mermaid and copper red green, and wouldn't you know the mermaid and intense black bead chipped just where it was going to be pointing up.
Will I buy this color again? Probably. It fills a niche not found in any other coe 104 glass that I know of.
