CiM Tester Feedback

  • Mint Chip is an opaque pastel green.
I think the Mint Chip and the Apple Pie nearly indistinguishable. Read more at DragonJools blog. – Dwyn Tomlinson

"Mint Chip is a lovely shade of pale spring green that is less greyish than Dirty Martini, less bluish than It Ain't Easy Being, less yellowish than Primavera, and slightly less vivid than Cardamom." Read more at Kandice's blog.

"Mint Chip is an icy pastel green, with a hint of gray. The glass remains clean and without streaking when used in combination with Effetre Light Ivory. No bubbling experienced; slight initial shocking, but easily remedied with gently warming in the flame. Admittedly, I am not drawn to glass with a green hue, however the color is quite lovely and fills a needed color gap in the palette of CoE 104 glass."

“I tested Mint Chip with copper green and Psyche. The Mint Chip has gone a bit streaky under both of these, but more so with the Psyche. The copper green has done its thing where it goes darker in the centre with a pale halo, but it has also greyed up a great deal. Psyche has fumed the base yellow and is showing up as brownish purple. That’s fairly expected.” Read more at Heather’s blog.

"This glass goes very pale when hot - almost grey, but returns to a soft green colour when cool." Read more at DragonJools blog.

"This glossy Mint Chip goddess has been partially wrapped with silver which has then flashed through a very hot torch flame. The reaction is much less pronounced that you can see with Muskmelon but has given a very pretty contrasting reaction with the silver none the less." Read more at Kitzbitz Art Glass' blog.

"Imagine CiM Dirty Martini but a touch greener. . . . it's not streaky, it etches like a dream, works as stringer and is a doddle to use. I do like an unfussy glass! It does appear quite a bit paler when encased with clear but that is totally normal." Read more at Laura's blog.
