"Limeade in my opinion is a pale lime green with a yellow undertone. Not shocky and no issues with bubbling or scumming. Played nicely with dichroic and silver glass on surface." – Terri Herron

CiM Tester Feedback

  • Limeade is a cloudy transparent. Many testers report that our cloudy transparents are prone to shockiness or breakage. **Please pre-warm / pre-anneal rods accordingly.**

"This group featuring Avalon Milky [new personal favorite- left], Limeade [middle] and Beeswax Milky [right]. All of these play very nicely and aren't shocky like other semi-transparent colors."

“This streaky translucent [cloudy transparent] resembles green alabaster. My second test rod of Limeade was not shocky. Like the Effetre translucent line of Opalinos and Alabastros, it has a tendency to boil, especially when thinning to flamecut. Gently heat to flamecut and tuck bleb into the body of the piece. Be prepared to pluck out inevitable scummy areas. Also like the Opalinos, you need to use an oxidizing flame to prevent carbonizing the surface. Unlike the Opalinos, the CiM cloudy transparents are not too viscous [stiff] so they are more malleable and less likely to boil, making them ideal for sculpting.”

"Limeade is a lovely semi-transparent soft yellow-green, very reminiscent of its name. No issues with shockiness, it was easy to work. Shown here as spacers and as a base bead with DH Arke and Hyperion."
Janet Evans
“My first test rod of Limeade was a bit shocky. Limeade needs to be treated with care. The flame needs to be kept off the section being thinned, and the piece needs to be moved away from the torch while flame-cutting. If the thinned section is in the flame or too close to the torch, it will scum up almost 100% of the time. The nib remaining after flame-cutting needs to be lightly heated and pressed into the body of the piece. Scummy areas can be plucked out. It’s like Goldilocks- the flame can’t be too oxidized or the glass is likely to get scummy. But it can’t be too reduced or the glass carbonizes. You need to dial in the perfect flame. The cloudy transparents do have just the right amount of viscosity to be perfect for sculpting. With very little heating, the glass is ready to accept manipulation, yet stiff enough to hold the details as long as you don’t accidentally hit it with the flame too long. There is a short learning curve to get the timing down.”

"Limeade is a lovely zesty hue. I would say this is more of a lemon and lime mixed, more heavy on the lemon side from my experience. It is such a beautiful colour. I preheated this rod, as I believe it would be quite shocky otherwise. Once prewarmed it melted like butter. I did experience a few bubbles, which may have been intentional judging by the name. Even if the bubbles are unintentional, it does add to the beauty of the glass."

"A very pale translucent lemon-lime color. A gorgeous color over white or clear. 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. Limeade was then wound onto this bead. This gives the opportunity to see encasement in a variety of common beadmaking situations."
Kim Fields
"The cone and disc here are Limeade. It’s fuss free, I had no problems with this being shocky. I introduced it as usual [straight in without pre warming] and it did great. Love the wispiness of this color and it sits between a pale lemon and pale lime to my eye- kind of like the perfect blended margarita! Love this one! In this image, I have used both Scotch Broom and Limeade along with a twisty of Kniphofia, Butternut and Pea Green. The orange wrap is Kniphofia and the pink dot is Lingonberry."
Angela Dose
"Limeade is a lovely soft lime colour. Very subtle. All of the new cloudy transparent glass is so much nicer to work with then the last batch. They are not shocky at all."
Suzy Hannabuss
"I found Limeade to be a dream to work with and made a very sunny lemon yellow tending toward green."
Lori Peterson
"Limeade in my opinion is a pale lime green with a yellow undertone. Not shocky and no issues with bubbling or scumming. Played nicely with dichroic and silver glass on surface."
Terri Herron
"This is a very pretty cloudy, a very pale, fresh green, lovely for spring. After my experience with Stonewashed [another cloudy transparent] I preheated the end of the rod in my kiln. The glass melted beautifully with no shocking or bubbling. The pair on the right is decorated with pure silver foil and a Val Cox frit blend."
Josephine Wadman
"Limeade is a very yellowish green, and a cloudy transparent. I did have some shocking, although not so bad I couldn't work. I did melt up the shocked pieces on a blob of clear to make the spiral horn. Good color for spring. It is similar to Chirp, which was a very small batch, but less shocky and a little greener."
