A bright opaque red orange.




"Pimento is a nice bright orangey red that I like a lot. In the rod it appears a little less orange than Effetre carrot red, though it is a similar sort of colour." Read more at Heather's blog. – Heather Kelly

"Pimento is an opaque tomato red. This bright addition served as a lovely, stiff canvas for the fine stringer work. After the initial shaping process, this firm glass accepted generous heat without becoming soupy or loosing form."

"Two of these beads have a core of Pimento, a touch of silver foil burnished on and burnt off which has then been encased with Effetre 006 clear glass. The other three are solid Pimento, fine silver foil and then have been rolled in a touch of Zimmermann Z7911 Orange Yellowish frit." Read more at Kitzbitz Art Glass' blog.

"Pimento is very saturated. Like intensely so. I am shocked by how much color is in this glass. It overtakes everything! It's your basic opaque - not too stiff, doesn't bleed, or spread, and is consistent in shade, for the most part. It pretty much acts like an opaque red in the flame - it turns black when hot and can burn easily." Read more at Kandice's blog.

"I was able to encase Pimento in both Bead #3 and Bead #5 with Reichenbach Crystal with no problems at all. Good news, because sometimes you want to encase red/coral/orange and I haven't had a lot of luck encasing the Effetre hot colours." Read more at Melanie's blog.

"This one had dots of a light turquoise CiM Fremen - you can see there has been a reaction and there is a handsome dark grey line around the Fremen." Read more at DragonJools blog.

"Pimento [outer circle] is a dense red-orange, and completely opaque. Compared to Phoenix [inner circle], it is about the same shade value, but the hue is more red."
Renee Wiggins
"Pimento is a very unique color. It has a strage planetary look to it, very bright with some neat effects. In rod form and melted into a lentil, it looks very similar to carrot red. But when I pressed a little flat piece it has this depth to it."
