"Looks just like watermelon with a streaky hue- can look like spun silk if applied in layers and swirled. Pretty lush colour, perfect for summer." – Juliette Mullett

The heart pendant is just Watermelon on its own. Used this way the colour is dense and you can just about see its wispiness.

"Watermelon describes this colour perfectly. Quite an orangey-red on its own, this glass can add a lovely tint when layered over other colours. It melts smoothly and easily. Very much a no-fuss kinda glass." Here shown plain and over Effetre white.

"Watermelon is another cloudy/streaky transparent. I keep wanting to call it strawberry. I think it is more in between watermelon and strawberry."
Suzy Hannabuss
"Watermelon is one of the new 'cloud power' colours that CiM has developed, made with clear glass that contains colour pigments giving a striation effect. The first bead I made was the heart bead, made purely with Watermelon. This made the bead look more like a solid colour, as I wanted to see the striations, I decided to experiment by adding layers of clear. The round one in the middle was made with a layer of clear, encased with Watermelon and repeated. The donut shape bead on the right was made with a thick clear base and encased once with Watermelon. Both of these show the special effect of the glass, and means a little will go a long way! Watermelon is an interesting glass and you can get different effects depending on how you use it."
Trudi Doherty
"This heart pair is made with solid Watermelon. I really like the bright juicy colour and semi transparent 'powdery' look. The negative with this glass for me is that I like to add small dots of glass at a time to the faces of heart beads and press several times to build up the perfect shape. I am finding that the tip of the rod boils easily and leaves micro bubbles when I add the extra glass." Read more at Kitzbitz Art Glass' blog.

"Watermelon is an orangey red cloudy transparent and it’s lovely. Again, it’s a very well-behaved glass and it requires no striking or faffing to get consistent results. The photo shown here is all Watermelon over Effetre White 204." Read more at Laura's blog.
