CiM Tester Feedback

  • Camouflage
Camouflage is a new color to the 104 palette. It is similar to Army Men, Leaf Men, and Troll, but just a bit different in color to each of those. – Paula Schertz
"Here, I've shot Camouflage and Amphibian spacers, side by side. You can see that Camouflage is darker and greener than Amphibian, which has a softer, slightly bluer and greyer hue." Read more at Melanie's blog. – Melanie Graham

"Camouflage is a medium green opaque glass. It's quite streaky, separating on itself in lacelike patterns, and this behaviour seems to be aggravated by the addition of silver, becoming more pronounced." Read more at Melanie's blog.

"This green set is made with a lovely grey toned olive green called Camouflage. I've used this pretty green as a solid colour in the spacers and under a thick encased layer of clear glass to make the rounds. This green is just gorgeous, this shade looks like it would be equally at home as a swatch from a high end paint range - retro and modern at the same time." Read more at Kitzbitz Art Glass' blog.

"My first thought was that CiM Camouflage was just a shade darker than CiM Amphibian, but it turns out to be much more like Effetre Copper Green in nature. . . . Where it really gets exciting is once you put it on ivory. Thin trails of Camouflage over light ivory. In some places, it broke up more than others, not sure why." Read more at DragonJools blog.

"Camouflage is like copper green x intense black. Look at the webbing effect I got on light ivory."
Dwyn Tomlinson
"Camouflage is an interesting light grayed olive. It’s easy to work with and has cool reactions the longer it’s worked."
Gloria Sevey
"Camouflage is an incredible peat moss color with a hint of gray. The opaque glass begins to show webbing when repeatedly heated and prolonged working. The 'webbing' which occurs is similar in nature to the antique effect found in Effetre Ivory, where the gloss tends to separate through the flamework process. No shocking or bubbling occurred during testing." See more at Heather's blog.
Heather Sellers
"Camouflage melted smoothly with no shockiness or bubbles. It made a really nice olive green encased with Peat Moss. There was no reaction on the Peace, but on the Dark Ivory there was a darker line around each of the Camouflage dots. With the reaction I created another Dark Ivory bead with dots of Camouflage dots raked, there was a very pleasing reaction once again on the Dark Ivory. The Kalera’s Romance frit and silver foil with Savannah frit both created nice organic colored beads."
Paula Schertz
"Described by CiM as an opaque green, looking at the rod I would describe it as being a very light olive kind of green with blue/grey tones. But it was the effect on the bead surface that has me baffled, it's not something I have come across before. I wound the glass around the mandrel as normal, but when you look at the bead it looks as though I have 'dabbed' on the glass as it has a kind of mottled effect. I have looked at the rod again, and there is nothing unusual about it, and it melted fine with no issues! There was no particular reaction with silvered ivory, but look at the dots made with Peace- they are really soft around the edges and somewhat mis-shapen! Once melted the beads do look darker than the rod."

"Camouflage was doing something interesting, like a weird texture in the colour was coming out as I worked it. It was interesting encased too."
