"Loch Ness is nearly dark enough to be black, but shows some hint of being green. I like it. Very little fuss with it." – Chris Haussler

CiM Tester Feedback

  • Loch Ness was engineered in response to requests for a green based black. Testers report that Loch Ness is especially good for making vine cane.
  • Special thanks to Jolene Wolfe for providing the photo in this section.

"Silver dissolves in a fun way on top of Loch Ness, looking almost like a starscape or galaxy. When the silver is reduced and encased, it opacifies on top of the Loch Ness and develops hints of blue here and there. This colour has potential as a good base colour for silver glass. Both my reducing silver glass and my striking silver glass got great colour on top of it." Read more at Melanie's blog.

"I had some weird stuff happening with the Loch Ness marble. I encased the color in Aether to keep the green from touching the ivory. The silver fumed onto the clear and it made the color look bluish, not deep green."

"CiM has a great selection of super saturated glass colours in their palette which are just perfect for making stringers and murrini that don't look washed out. The vines and leaves have been made in two ways - the hearts on the left have vines made with CiM Goldenrod encased with CiM Loch Ness [though any bright yellow opaque glass under Loch Ness will work just as well]. The vines on the right are made with CiM Weeping Willow under a layer of Loch Ness." Read more at Kitbitz Art Glass' blog.

"Loch Ness is a transparent swamp green. The heavily-pigmented mossy color becomes more readily visible when used as a decorative frit or encased. Otherwise, the glass appears almost black in intensity."

“In the picture from left to right these decorated egg shaped beads use Slytherin, Loch Ness and Slytherin Unique-2.” Read more at Kitzbitz Art Glass’ blog.
