Pixie Ltd Run (511444)<br />An opaque green.

An opaque green.




"It's hard to classify Pixie, because it's kind of green, but not real green. If that makes any sense. It's too dark to be called Celadon, [in fact, CiM's Celadon glass is lighter.] It's kind of sea-foam-y. It's gorgeous, and I love it. Pixie did really well making encased stringer - it holds its shade nicely and doesn't wash out when melted in. Pixie was smooth to melt and had a really nice consistency while working. I love that CiM is filling holes in the 104 color palette." Read more at Kandice's blog. – Kandice Seeber

Messy Tester's Feedback

  • Pixie fills a hole in the 104 glass lampworking palette.
Pixie nicely fills the color transition from green to green-blue in the CiM palette. Very minor shocking occurred during testing.   – Heather Sellers

"Well, this one was a mighty pleasant surprise! Pixie is a vibrant green with a touch of blue to it. It’s very similar to CiM Celadon in hue but it’s less streaky which pleases me no end. Very smooth, no pitting and no bleeding when encased." Read more at Laura's tumblr.

"To me - Pixie is almost indistinguishable from Celadon. It's a little streaky, reacts with dark ivory and is a very pleasant turquoise green colour. Definitely a keeper!" Read more at DragonJools blog.
