An very pale opaque green, almost a neutral.




"Peppermint Cream melted smoothly with no shockiness or bubbles. It works excellent alone or as a base color. I did have a crack on the Peppermint Cream encased with Maple. It was a great rich color. Peppermint Cream was a fantastic base for frits and I can’t wait to try more frit combinations on it. What can I say about Peppermint Cream as a base for the stipple stich with Clio stringer…OMG…what a gorgeous color and the beautiful fuming that happened. I look forward to making more stipple stitch beads with other beautiful silver glass colors, to see what fuming happens." – Paula Schertz

Messy Tester's Feedback

  • Peppermint Cream was melted in response to requests for neutrals in varied hues.
"Peppermint Cream is a pale, yellowish green opaque colour. It is soft and creamy, and my rods were very well behaved, not shocking at all in the flame. It reminds me quite a bit of an older colour called Linen, except that it has a greenish cast to it . . . . This colour is a touch lighter than Dirty Martini and just a shade or two yellower."

"Two new beautiful colours from CiM that go well together: Peppermint Cream & Weeping Willow. Peppermint Cream is an off white with the palest hint of green, makes a superb neutral base. I made base beads with each and put polka dots with the other, notice how Weeping Willow spreds over Peppermint Cream, but on it's couterpart the colours behave normally. Peppermint Cream is a soft glass and melted with no issues."

"When I encased Peppermint Cream after putting silver on it, it cracked under my Effetre 006 Clear. This doesn't mean you shouldn't encase it, but it definitely means that you shouldn't encase it after putting silver on it. This has happened to me with other colours that are otherwise perfectly compatible like Effetre Petroleum Green and CiM Linen. Just proceed with caution, and make a test bead before embarking on a big run of beads the way you always should anyway." Read more at Melanie's blog.

"Peppermint Cream is a very very pale pastel green. It’s like a light ivory mixed with a dash of green. It works really well as stringer and it retains nice crisp edges on dots and scrollwork. The glass melted fine with no shockiness or bubble troubles. These beads are Bayou with a thick encasing layer of Effetre Super [Crystal] Clear 006 and the decoration and spacers are Peppermint Cream. The photographs were taken indoors in natural daylight."

"Beyond the shockiness, Peppermint Cream is a nice, opaque neutral color that I mostly just used as a base. I wasn't able to encase it for stringer because the rod kept shattering, but I was able to make some spacers and a couple of beads with it. Once it is hot, it has a nice consistency and stays opaque. I did notice some specks of what might be dirt or something in the petal I pulled, which may account for the shocky nature. You can see this if you look closely at the picture. I don't have much else to say about Peppermint Cream - but if they end up reformulating it to remove the fragility, I will gladly test it again. I'd like to have this shade in my arsenal - it's nice to have a cooler off-white color as a base." Read more at Kandice's blog.

"This neutral colour makes a perfect base for blending with other colours, just enough colour without domineering other colours used alongside it."

"Peppermint Cream is a soft, muted verdant linen. The color looks to fall between Muskmelon and Dirty Martini in the CiM family. The color could easily be mistaken for a neutral since the hue is extremely subtle in nature. The longer the glass is worked in the flame, the more muted the color becomes. Easily molded and keeps a nice crisp edge through the heating process. Fantastic for sculpture and holding detail. No shocking or bubbling occurred during testing."
