CiM Tester Feedback

  • Prometheus is clear with 203 Pimento, 569 Smurfy, and 217 Harvest streamers.
"Love the idea of Prometheus, but the streamers show more as streaks in my beads. I would like it better if the streamers were a little more pronounced. Not shocky and no issues with bubbling or scumming." – Terri Herron

"Prometheus has ribbons of warm oranges and red encased in transparent clear glass. In my opinion, it’s one of the more exciting streamers. Shown here as spacers, over foil, over Peace, and over Effetre Periwinkle."

“The new CiM Streamer glasses are all transparent with stripes of various opaque colours running the length of the rod. When used they result in ribbons and wisps of colour suspended in the glass. I’ve put these together in one post because usage wise the Streamers are all pretty much the same. They melt smoothly with no shocking, hazing or bubbling. Great to work with. This glass needs to be used carefully to get the best out of it. You can’t just slap it on the mandrel all cattywampus and expect it to look great. You need to wrap it or layer it on with care so that the streamers can stream. I feel that this glass lends itself perfectly to discs and hollows due to the way these types of beads are constructed. I opted for hollow beads and all of the ones pictured were made with the two disc method, not blown.” Read more at Laura’s blog.

"Prometheus was another interesting glass to work with because it contains stringers of varied colors encased with clear. Unlike Carnival whose blue surface tendered to obscure the interior colors, Prometheus’ clear surface allowed the true colors to be seen. When made as solid beads, the colors naturally seem more intense. At the same time, the hollow vessel had a wonderful array of swirling colors that have an energetic feel. I can imagine using this glass to make tentacles for jellyfish and stamen for flowers if folded and pulled. Prometheus was easy to use as it flowed easily and was not shocky poppy. A real pleasure!"

“The ‘Streamer’ colors like Prometheus make playful, fun beads. 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. Prometheus was then wound onto this bead. This gives the opportunity to see encasement in a variety of common beadmaking situations.”

"These are Effetre dark teal hearts encased with Prometheus. You can create areas that have a latticino type of look to them if you twist a streamer glass rod as you lay it down over the base." Read more at Kitzbitz Art Glass' blog.

"Prometheus is a clear glass that has fine lines of red, orange and pale blue running the length of it inside. To make this large heart, I have wound Prometheus around a core of clear glass and shaped. I finished the bead with some handmade twistie cane." Read more at Kitzbitz Art Glass' blog.

"After feedback from last year's Circus Tent, CiM has produced similar styles that they call streamers . . . a very fitting name don't ya think! To get the pretty streamer effect, I found rather than melting and pulling the rod around the base, I held the end of the rod in the flame until it softened and gently laid it onto the base. I also like the white base as it really showcases the beauty of this glass! An unusual glass, and fun to play with. Prometheus melted with no issues."

"Here Prometheus is self wrapped, and on a base of Peace [twisted while applying]. Nice colors, and thickness of strands, and density-ratio of strands. I think this is the perfect ‘formula’ for this new style of streamer glass."
Jenefer Ham
"I used the various streamer rods to make birdy bodies. The glass makes pleasant wispy swirls in the transparent glass. I rotated the rod fairly slowly while in the flame to make the base beads. The wings, beak, and tail are clear and the head is lightly reduced Clio. [Left to right: Sea Anemone, Prometheus, Solar Storm, Bird's Nest.]"
