CiM Testing: Vintage Rose

Handmade lampwork glass silver core big hole charm bead by Laura Sparling made with CiM Vintage Rose

Vintage Rose is one of CiM’s new cloud colours. It appears somewhat paler once worked compared to how it looks in its original rod form.

Creation is Messy Vintage Rose

In the photo above you can see how these cloudy glasses work – repeated layers of clear/pale transparent and a colour, so that when it’s melted you get a translucent misty cloud effect.

This colour is a delightful, soft, powder pink blush. Lovely! I decorated the bead with scrolls in Effetre White 204.

Vintage Rose was fine to work with – no fussiness or shocking.
