CiM Tester Feedback

  • Inca Rose is a cloudy transparent. Many testers report that our cloudy transparents are prone to shockiness or breakage. **Please pre-warm / pre-anneal rods accordingly.**
  • Special thanks to Claudia Eidenbenz for the comparison photo in this section.

"Delicate warm pink, almost salmony pink. Light and translucent with great working characteristics, smooth and pliable, yet stays in place when sculpting."
Anna Miller
"Inca Rose is a little pale for my taste, hard to really see the details of the sculpture."
Dwyn Tomlinson
“A semi-transparent, you can see wisps of colour suspended and running through the glass. This gives Inca Rose a soft, romantic quality, sort of like a faded dusty rose. As advised by CiM, I did preheat the rod before working it. However, despite the preheat, I did have a few small shocks while melting this glass. If I was to use it again, I would put the rods through a full annealing cycle first. Inca Rose is not quite vibrant enough for my taste, but if you are looking for a quieter pink, you may want to give it a try. Shown here in rod form, as a sculpted flower, a hollow heart and as spacer beads.”

"Inca Rose is a cloudy transparent pink. It appears to be just a shade darker than Ballet Slipper. Cloudy transparents are prone to shockiness so pre-warming is recommended. As a base for my Goddess style beads, this glass melted smoothly. Layered dots of Cafe Au Lait which has some silver content and DH Kalypso silver glass. I played with layering on these beads and ended up with a bit of change in each bead. One of the beads has a layer of rare CiM's Black Currant between the silver glass layers. Two of the beads have a layer of CiM's Gypsy between the silver glass layers. The bead on the right was just layered with Cafe Au Lait and Kalypso and produced more pink as a result. Clear portal dots of Double Helix Zephyr were added to capture the stormed reaction of the silver glass. Each portal turned into reduced storms of purples and pinks as a result of the reaction between the two silver laden glasses. The base glass of Inca Rose stayed true and kept its pinky peach hue. Dots of DH Kalypso complete each bead." See more at Darlene's blog.

"Beautiful rose quartz colour. Smooth melt. Working in a cooler flame eliminates any scumming. A more beige tone in the pink. Love this shade!"

"Inca Rose is a cloudy, transparent pale pink glass. Very beautiful and melted nicely but I pre-heated the rod so had no problems. Slightly darker pink than Ballet Slipper and slightly less cloudy but both are delicious delicate watery pinks. Class in glass!"
Bianca Gruber
"Inca Rose is almost the perfect delicate pink with just a touch of peach tone. I warmed it thoroughly in the back of the flame and had no issues at all with it being shocky. The color lays down consistently and provided a great base for the fine stringer detail that I add to practically all of my work. I am really happy with how these new pigment cloud colors have evolved!"
Michelle Veizaga
“I made a sculptural bird bead with Inca Rose. Seems like a darker version of Ballet Slipper. Found the color a bit streaky and a little shocky. I began with a clear ‘core’ body and then encased in Inca Rose. 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.”

"Inca Rose was a little shocky initially but I just warmed the end of the rod in the kiln by hand and it behaved after that! I like this color, the longer I heated and shaped it the more saturated it became while still maintaining its wispiness. I enjoy the slight wispiness in the glass, it gives the piece a soft internal interest when looking closely. The body of the heart is Inca Rose, and while you can’t really see them, there are polka dots of Elegance there."
Angela Dose
"This glass rod has rings like a cored cane. And wow! I LOVE this color!! It's a peachy pink, or at least it is when layered over silvered ivory. It melted nicely, the rods weren't shocky, wasn't prone to boiling and played well with silvered ivory. All high score wins in my book! Yummy!!"
Joy Munshower
"When I'm using these translucent colors, I like to put a bright background behind them so that you can see them. And Peace just seemed to make sense. These translucents- I found that you have to work them kinda cool . . . Otherwise I do have issues with burning them." Watch Maria's demo of Alex the Axolotl made with Peace and Inca Rose on YouTube.
Maria Schoenenberger
"A beautiful pink, and a new addition to CiM's cloudy transparent range. I did pre-warm my rod and worked in a cooler flame and had no issues at all with this colour. Inca Rose gives a delicate wispy effect and is perfect for the old-fashioned romantics out there."
