CiM Tester Feedback

  • Siren was engineered as a replacement for Aloe Juice [now sold out]. Testers report that Siren is a successful substitute for Aloe Juice.
"The focal hearts to the right are made with a thick core of either Siren [decorated with turquoise flowers] or Aloe Juice [decorated with purple flowers] encased in Effetre 006 clear glass. It is very easy to see from these beads what a close match these two colours are." – Jolene Wolfe
I can't tell Siren apart from Aloe Juice. – Gloria Sevey
"Siren is a transparent shade that was to be a remake of the color Aloe Juice - and for me it's a dead ringer! This is exciting, because Aloe Juice was one of my favorites, and I was sad when they ran out." Read more at Kandice's blog. – Kandice Seeber
"Siren is, huewise, right between Effetre Pale Aqua and Pale Emerald, although it is more saturated than either of those." Read more at Melanie's blog. – Melanie Graham

"Siren is a pretty, pale teal green transparent colour. I found that this colour worked up sort of cloudy, giving me the same boiling / scumming experience I am prone to with the other light CiM transparents. Working cooler and higher up in the flame really seems to help with this, but is unfortunately not second nature to me." Read more at Melanie's blog.

"I did have problems with Siren boiling and scumming a little. I tried working it cooler and slower, and it helped a little. You can see from this close-up - quite a lot of bubbling at the edges. Whether you can use this to your advantage in your designs, i.e. a trail of bubbles from a fish in an aquarium bead, or if it will just make you crazy - that is up to you."

"Siren is a nice green transparent however it needs to be worked very cool to prevent bubbling." Read more at Darlene's blog.
Darlene Collette
"This is a total success! Siren is indistinguishable from Aloe Juice. It does bubble a little if you get it too hot but so did Aloe Juice. Siren is a perfect transparent green,  not too yellow not too blue and not too pale."

"Siren is a gorgeous shade of light green with just a hint of teal. I would call it pale teal green. It pretty much has the same simple characteristics as Aloe Juice. It's got great consistency, doesn't bubble or scum or shock, is a nice viscosity, and layers very well. Siren is just a bit bluer than Appletini and slightly greener than any of the teal shades. It's a great addition to the palette, as there is no similar shade other than the sold-out Aloe Juice." Read more at Kandice's blog.
Kandice Seeber
"I was asked if Siren etches and so I did a quick test by dipping this rod in tub of etchall fluid for a minute or two and neutralising it with baking soda in water. As you can see it etches beautifully." Read more at Kitzbitz Art Glass' blog.
Jolene Wolfe
"Siren is a pale transparent green. The glass seemed to color shift during the final flamepolish. There was a bit of hazing during the flameworking process. Similar to Refresh, but with a hint more emerald green." Read more at Heather's blog.
Heather Sellers
"I'm in love .... green is my favourite colour and I have always loved Aloe Juice. The team at CiM have come up trumps with Siren a re-make of Aloe Juice. I'd say it was so close you could sell it as Aloe Juice and no one would know the difference! It melted like a dream with no issues at all."
