CiM Tester Feedback

  • We often have requests for a more orange-ish version of Maraschino & Firecracker. Goji is our response to that.
  • Special thanks to Claudia Eidenbenz for the photo in this section.

"Goji is a super bright orange red. Semi-translucent or almost opaque. Lovely bright shade, sculpts well, and it appears to be a nice stable color."
Anna Miller
"Goji is described as a red towards the orange-ish side of the spectrum. It is semi-transparent, not quite opaque but not fully transparent. The working time for flowers is very short, so there may be a difference to be expected with a longer working time. Goji is a beautiful color, one I want to add to my palette."
Chris Haussler
"Goji . . . Oh Goji . . such a beautiful new orangey-red. It is bright, strong and holds its colour so well. A little goes a long way. Melts like a dream."
Suzy Hannabuss
"Goji is a lovely red with an orange undertone. It is very similar to CiM Poppy which was just slightly darker. It melts beautifully and doesn’t get dark or livery with extended working time."
Caroline Davis
“Goji is an orange red semi-opaque glass that really shines through as the kind of shade that we need in soft glass. It plays nicely with surface decoration and was a dream to melt. Just an overall great color!”
Michelle Veizaga
"Goji is a great orange-red. It's very like CiM Sangre in the way it's not fully opaque and not fully transparent. It's probably closest to Effetre Carrot Red in shade, but Carrot Red doesn't have the juicy translucency that Goji does. Goji melts beautifully and is really nice to work with. It barely needs striking to keep the colour strong and true. I love using Sangre and Clockwork Orange to make colourful sheep so Goji fits in perfectly. I've taken pictures for you in sunlight so you can see how wonderful these colours are when the light shines through them."
Heather Johnson
"A beautiful warm red/orange. Smooth melting with lovely striations. A separation of clear and opaque upon melting but ended up opaque. Love the variation in this shade."
Jean Daniels
"Goji is an exciting, bright, vibrant, semi-transparent orangey red glass. I found it fairly easy to blow and easy to sculpt. I noticed that it acted in some ways like a striking color—one that had already been struck. While heating it, I observed that the color would sometimes disappear and then suddenly re-appear when I bathed it in the upper flame. [I took a picture of a stringer I pulled so you could clearly see the color difference I experienced.] If worked too long or too hot, it will scorch a bit; I have a small scorch mark on the back of the heart. My rod was a little shocky. When I first introduced the rod to the flame, a chunk came off. Later on, it happened again. Overall, I think this glass is lovely because of its perfect balance between red and orange. The user should be careful to introduce it gently into the flame and to not over heat."
Susan Parry
"I expected that this glass would maintain its color through multiple heating and cooling cycles as I created my goddess style beads. This bead set was created using Goji as the base glass. Layered dots of Café Au Lait which has some silver content and rare Double Helix Kronos silver glass. Clear portal dots of DH Zephyr were added to capture the stormed reaction of the silver glass. Each portal turned a beautiful blue as a result of the reaction between the two silver laden glasses. As the Goji glass was heated and cooled, the silver glass deepened to a darker orange-red hue. Dots of DH Aurae Light complete each bead." See more at Darlene's blog.
Darlene Collette
"Goji is a beautiful, luminous red leaning toward the orange side. It is partially transparent if heated certain ways, as seen here in my two cats. Work it cool to keep it opaque. Effortless to strike and smooth to work."
Lori Peterson
"Goji is a fabulous almost fluorescent orangey red. This glass is opaque when layered thickly or given a lot of heat, transparent when thin and worked on the cooler side. I had no issues with shockiness and found it easy to work. I love the vibrancy of Goji! Highly recommended, it is on my definitely must-have list. Goji is shown here in rod form, as spacers, as a hollow heart and pulled into a flower."
Janet Evans
"Goji is the perfect name for this colour. It’s a goji berry orange-red that is not transparent enough to call transparent but also not fully opaque. I didn’t strike the glass as such; I just made beads with it in my usual way so if there was any striking it would have happened while I was rounding up the beads and adding the spots. These beads have a core of CiM Creamsicle encased with a thin layer of Goji. There are slight colour variations towards the holes where I moved the glass with a brass tool, and this normally occurs with reds, oranges and yellows, but they barely show. The glass was smooth to work with and it didn’t shock or bubble." Read more at Laura's blog.

"Goji is very rich in colour, both in rod form and in its final end product. Although it is a striking colour per se I found that it self strikes so easily and further striking can make turn the colour deeper. I felt I had complete control over how deep I wanted the colour to turn. The vibrancy of this glass makes it so versatile to work with other colours including silver glass. A sure winner in my books. Melts like butter, no boiling or scumming. As I live in a climate that is naturally chilly I always preheat the rods."
Juliette Mullett
"Goji is a lovely orangish red and a very dense transparent. Nice and easy to work and did indeed melt to be quite transparent. It didn’t need striking back to its colour like Clockwork does. Holding up my test bead to the light it is quite opaque but I can see some beautiful transparency in the thinner areas so would make for some amazing sculptural beads I think. In my test bead line up, it comes between Effetre Medium Red [432] and CiM Clockwork. This is an orange red I didn’t know I was missing!"
Bianca Gruber
"Goji is about as red as an orange can get and still be orange in my humble opinion. It is not technically an opaque, but is so dense that it reads like one. It does opacify as you work it. Truly an amazing, intense color."
Dwyn Tomlinson
“I made a sculptural bird bead with Goji. Found this color very similar to CiM Poppy. The ‘striking’ of the color was inconsistent with some transparent spots while the rest was opaque. Once the bead was completed, tried to restrike it in the flame, but was unsuccessful. I began with a clear ‘core’ body and then encased in Goji. This gives an opportunity to see encasement with the color. The head, wings and tail were added straight from the rod. I used Reichenbach Deep Black for the base of the beak followed by Effetre Pastel Yellow. The eyes were also Reichenbach Deep Black.”
Kim Fields
"A little bit of Goji . . . a little turquoise and sky! What’s not to like about this color combo! Goji is another 2022 CiM glass and I’m gonna say it’s probably my favorite so far! It’s a bit red . . . a bit orange red! The longer I worked this glass the deeper red it got, the quick spacers were a bit more orange red. This is one color I’ll need when the glass hits the retailer. No 'fussy' stuff happens with this glass like I’ve experienced with some of the Italian red glasses, what you see is what you get! A dream to melt and plays well . . . Double bonus!"

"Goji - I LOVE this color!! It's bright, cheerful and fun! And a dream to melt and play with! A bright poppy light red with a hint of orange."
