Messy Tester's Feedback

  • Your Majesty was melted in response to requests for transparent purples that aren't too "brownish."
This is an appealing new purple, at first glance it is very similar  to Effetre 042, but it has brighter, lighter pink tones. Melts beautifully in the flame with no issues at all. – Trudi Doherty
Your Majesty is a new color to the 104 palette. It is a gorgeous rich color that lives up to its name, Your Majesty. – Paula Schertz

"Your Majesty melted smoothly with no shockiness or bubbles. It works excellent alone or as a base color. It is a fabulous base for frits. I am going to want to try more frits with this as the results with the two I tried were yummy."

"Next, we have Your Majesty, a medium transparent plum/purple. It seems to be a lighter version of Simply Berry, CiM's dark amethyst shade. I would say that even though Your Majesty has less of a brownish cast than its Effetre cousins, it is still much more plum than purple. I do like that it's not too dark - this will make it a nice color to layer with light purple and blue opaques. I can't say this is the most exciting purple in the world, but it's better than some of the alternatives. Your Majesty was a tiny bit stiffer than usual, but not enough to keep it from layering well. It didn't have any reactive properties, and didn't spread, bleed or scum. It's got great clarity as well." Read more at Kandice's blog.

"A beautiful rich deep burgundy wine colour that looks stunning on its own as well as used with silver glass decoration as shown here. Melts nice, no scumming or pitting. Seen here with Double Helix Triton."

"Your Majesty is similar to Effetre transparent Medium Amethyst 042 but it doesn’t have the brown tinge that the Effetre does. It’s a reddish pinky-purple. The glass is very clean with no bubbles or scum but it is quite stiff to work with. For these beads I used a thin layer of Your Majesty over a core of CiM Heffalump. The decoration is Effetre White 204 and the spacers are CiM Wisteria. Your Majesty is a very pretty colour and it’s a no-fuss one to use. The photos were taken indoors in natural daylight."

"Your Majesty is a regal transparent purple. The magenta glass holds shape nicely when sculpted and blown into a hollow vessel. No shocking or bubbling occurred during testing."
Heather Sellers
"Like many darker colours, silver glass loves this as a base and it brings out the best in them. Layered over CiM Lapis [not to be confused with Effetre, as it's quite different] it makes a rich velvet purple, quite similar to Eggplant but richer and with more depth. A truly pretty glass, and another on my wish list!"
