CiM Tester Feedback

  • Butter Pecan is an excellent neutral base color.
“Butter Pecan is good as a replacement for ivory if you don't want dark lines with reactive colors.” – Chris Molter
“I used it with several 96 frits, got less reaction than I get with ivory.” – Evil Glass
“This color is fairly nondescript, it is somewhat of an ivory, somewhat of a tan, it doesn't react with anything I used with it, so it isn't an exciting color. Some of the darker colors, like Bordello seem to "sink" into it, as if it were softer. That blurs the interface between the two colors. ” – Tim Gottleber
"This seems to be a nice glass to work with, as it gives a different shade to the 'ivory' category for me. It does have the streakiness of the ivories, so would work well with something you didn’t want an antiqued look too. I was hoping the finished glass would have the pearl look that the rod has, but was not able to achieve this.” – Jan Whitesel-Keeton
  • Although Butter Pecan is, in general, a non reactive glass, some Messy Color testers reported occasional reactions.
“Butter Pecan’s reaction with Celadon is one of my favorites of this glass line. I make a lot of floral beads and use this reaction to add interest to my beads. I also love how this glass can be used as an alternate to white . . . a bit warmer so it makes a great background color.” – Gail Witt

“I love making these ocean critter beads, the sandy beach effect is really pretty I think. I make this look by wrapping Butter Pecan with silver leaf and then vapourising it in the flame.” Read more at Kitzbitz Art Glass’ blog.

"We have started a project in Switzerland which is similar to Beads of Courage in America. Children who are diagnosed with cancer get during their treatment various beads for each step in their therapy. If they lose their hair, they get a little hairless head bead. I use Butter Pecan or Ginger for the skin color." Check out their organization Mutperlen or Mutperlen's blog.

"Butter Pecan was rolled in 99% fine silver foil and sprinkled with Coffee Bean frit from Robin Koza. The frit has webbed among the micro drops of silver to create a rich set of 14 lentil beads." Read more at Darlene's blog.

Butter Pecan is a great fleshy tone.

"This 7 barrel bead set was created on a base of Butter Pecan, creamy opaque beige, on which blossoms of Double Helix silver glass, Psyche Light were placed, reduced and encased in clear glass. Dots of Double Helix Aurae highlight each flower centre and along the shoulders of the beads." Read more at Darlene's blog.

"This is a Ginger base on the left and a Butter Pecan base on the right, with dots, Butter Pecan on the left and Ginger on the right. When hot - it is really difficult to tell them apart, but once melted, they are quite distinctive." Read more at DragonJools blog.
