CiM Tester Feedback

  • Lake Baikal is our 539 Jet Stream formula with red & pink cloudy transparent pigment added.
  • Many testers report that our cloudy transparents are prone to shockiness or breakage. **Please pre-warm / pre-anneal rods accordingly.**

"Pretty shade like a darker Larkspur or Bashful. Works so good in neutral flame with wisps of dark pink but looks orange. Pretty blue/lavender colour glass."

"Lake Baikal is a lovely cool transparent blue mixed with flecks of rosy purple. The mix of colours add an interesting dimension to this glass. Shown here as spacers, over silver foil and over white."
Janet Evans
"This is one of CiM’s cloudy transparents – transparent glass with cloudy transparent pigments added to it – and it’s a beauty. Lake Baikal is a transparent blue with red and pink pigments that give the blue a soft purple glow when the light hits it just right. It’s flipping lovely. More hollows because I was in hollow bead mode, or to be more precise, refining hollow bead mode, and figuring out how to get consistent results with them. . . . Anyway, Lake Baikal is a really well-behaved glass and a gorgeous colour." Read more at Laura's blog.

"Lake Baikal is named after this beautiful lake and is color rich in a range of blues. As it is a cloudy transparent, I created a hollow round bead in order to show the depth of the patterns within this glass. A wrap of 99% fine silver wire gently melted to the surface completes the bead. The spacers are pure Lake Baikal."

"A unique blue with subtle variegations of lavender and pink. Quite unusual. I made a simple spacer bead. I also made a second bead with a base of Effetre Super Clear. The left side was then encased in Effetre white to represent the opaque, the middle in CiM Marshmallow to represent the translucent, and finally the right remained clear to represent the transparent. Lake Baikal was then wound onto this bead. This gives the opportunity to see encasement in a variety of common beadmaking situations."
Kim Fields
"Lake Baikal is a nice color. Over white, it stays true to color and works with stringer. The lentil and donut bead look the same transparency."
Suzanne Cancilla-Fox
"Lake Baikal is a gorgeous blue. This colour is a light version of CiM Sapphire. All of the new cloudy transparent glass is so much nicer to work with than the last batch. They are not shocky at all. When I encased Lake Baikal over white, it cracked. I put that down to leaving it out of the heat too long before putting it into the kiln. The other colours did not crack when encased over white [except Stonewashed]. So if you are going to encase Lake Baikal or Stonewashed over white be sure to put them directly from flame to kiln, do not allow to cool too much.""
Suzy Hannabuss
"I was apprehensive about Lake Baikal in rod form as the red inclusions seemed very hit and miss and subtle, but this is what makes this glass beautifully unique. Yes, the inclusions are subtle, but these blend in so beautifully with the lavender hues that surround it. This allows the light to bounce around the inside and give off a pretty inner purple glow, it really is beautiful. I preheated this rod, as I suspected it would be quite shocky. No issues whatsoever, melted at a lovely consistency, not too stiff but not buttery. A unique colour that will appeal to a lot of people, I don’t know any another colour like this with these kinds of inclusions. Lake Baikal is a must have for all glass lovers that like something a bit different."
Juliette Mullett
"I got a plum purple with Lake Baikal layered over a bright transparent purple [not the color I expected but lovely]. Not shocky and no issues with bubbling or scumming. Played nicely with dichroic and silver glass on surface. The red and pink cloudy transparent pigments were not visible in the bead I made."
