CiM Testing: Burnt Sugar

Handmade lampwork glass beads in Creation is Messy Burnt Sugar

Burnt Sugar is a transparent brown that has a beautiful warmth to it due to its subtle coppery and almost rosy tones. It has a great working consistency – not too stiff and not too gloopy – and it melts smoothly without any scumming or hazing. Not at all shocky either.

These beads have a core of CiM Foam encased with a heavy layer of the Burnt Sugar and they’re decorated with polka dots in Effetre Red Roof Tile 440. The spacers are plain Burnt Sugar and they are slightly paler than the main beads. I reckon that this is because the longer you work the glass, and the more you cool and reheat it, the warmer and more saturated the end result will be.

Burnt Sugar is a glorious colour and a really well-behaved glass. I love it.
