CiM Tester Feedback

  • Celeste was engineered in response to requests for 104 compatible "tints" - very pale transparents.
Celeste is such a pretty shade, very similar to but a touch lighter than Frost. – Jolene Wolfe

"Celeste is a dazzling blue. When pulled into fine stringers, the glass bubbled and created a bit of haziness. In larger diameters, the glass didn't bubble or haze. Used to create the 'water' effect on the duck cabochon, the glass held its shape without any touch ups in the intense heat. Overall a lovely glass for encasing." Read more at Heather's blog.

"Celeste is similar to other CiM pale transparent colors in that it can tend to scum a little on the surface when you start heating it, but as you continue to melt the glass, the bubbles will mostly disappear. It's not as stiff as some transparents, which made it easy to layer and encase with." Read more at Kandice's blog.

"Celeste is similar to Effetre 038 Pale Aquamarine but it’s much nicer to use. It’s smoother and very clear. It etches like a dream. I’ve used Celeste with CiM Foam in the beads pictured. Celeste is a bit like CiM Frost but not quite as saturated." Read more at Laura's tumblr.

"Celeste was far better behaved for me in terms of coping with the high heat. From left to right you can see Bullseye Juniper Blue 1807, Celeste, and Celeste etched with Dip N Etch. Celeste really comes into its own when etched, which is something that Bullseye glass just does not do easily or well." Read more at Kitzbitz Art Glass' blog.
