For a bit of beady goodness on the blog hop, click here.
One of the things I love to do is try out new colors and techniques. Creation is Messy has been wonderful enough to keep coming up with new colors to keep glass addicts like myself checking our mail boxes and I hope to be able to say something coherent soon about their newest colors.
For now I'd like to share that they've included some of my blog posts on their product pages. This is so flattering and I can't believe they're so wonderful. Here are some of the posts and the links to their website so you can see what other folks are doing with their amazing glass. One point I'd like to make is that I do not prewarm my rods unless I know they're going to be trouble (the Effetre hand-pulleds spring to mind) and CiM colors seem to be super-annealed or something because they simply do not cause trouble. Just saying. Really fun to work with.
If you go to the CiM website and look up African Gray (which is sadly sold out) you'll see my beads here.
I got listed as a tester on this one, which I get a little kick out of because every time I sit down to torch it's a bit of a test. http://www.creationismessy.com/color.aspx?id=38
I need to take better pictures. Or something http://www.creationismessy.com/color.aspx?id=22
OK, I'm stuck on watermelons, but Cranberry is really the only glass to use for them.http://www.creationismessy.com/color.aspx?id=25
