CiM Tester Feedback

  • Linen is an opaque ivory-ish color.
"Looks close to Uranium Yellow by rod color, but more saturated. It's like a darker Uranium Yellow." – Genea Crivello

"This is a pale neutral that leans to grey-green. I suspect, like most good neutrals - it will look quite different, depending on which glass you pair it with. Next to white, to me, it looks like a clay-like grey with a hint of green. Next to black, the greenish tone fades away. On cream, it almost seems to blend in." Read more at DragonJools blog.

"Just for fun, a black bead with dots, from the left, two rows of offset dots of Cardamom, same of Linen, same Peaches and Cream [you can see that it is translucent here!], and Coconut Milk. The Linen does look like Ivory in this context." Read more at DragonJools blog.

Jolene did a study of which glass colors [including Linen] make the best white chocolate. Read her blog for the interesting results.

"A lovely soft ivory coloured glass that lends itself nicely as a bead base colour! This glass melts easily and becomes ‘heavier’ in colour once worked in the flame over time, becoming more of a ‘coffee latte’ colour instead."
Liz DeLuca
“Linen is a pale neutral colour, and is the closest thing to a Light Ivory that is available from CiM. In terms of its consistency, it is closer to Vetrofond Light Ivory than to Effetre, however it is not really like either colour because the reactions are quite different, except for it being a pale, neutral, opaque colour. In terms of hue, prior to any reducing or fuming, the colour of Linen is slightly more on the yellow side than either Effetre or Vetrofond Light Ivory.” Read more at Melanie’s blog.
