CiM Tester Feedback

  • Testers compared Soylent to Italian grass green.
"Soylent is not as soft [as grass green] and doesn’t run over other colors as badly as the Italian. It works well as a core for leaf cane and it stays as an opaque where the Italian goes transparent and then back to opaque. What you see is what you get. Soylent seems tamer than the Italian." – Chris Haussler
"Soylent is more vibrant and has more 'ooomph.'" – Claire Morris
"Soylent seemed a bit lighter and brighter than grass green." – Donna Dorman
"Soylent is close to grass green but a little 'dirty' or grayish to me. I use Petroleum Green myself for most of what I would use it for." – Sue Stewart
"I think Soylent looks and works the same as grass green, only Soylent is stiffer." – Elasia
"Nice and streaky just like I like. Soylent does bleed into white, but not as bad as the Italian greens." – Jan Whitesel-Keeton
"Soylent looks slightly less yellow to me – which I prefer." – Kathy Coon
"Soylent is very striated. It is very much like Celadon in this manner--where it doesn't just striate around the bead in a linear manner, it sort of looks like a cobble stone or webbing type of effect. While some people may come up with great designs using the effect to their advantage, I prefer colors that striate as little as possible." – Bethany Lemasters
"First I chose Effetre 214 Nile Green to compare with, because it is in a rod almost the same colour. In a bead Soylent was darker than 214, same colour or even a little bit darker than 216 [Grass Green]. Soylent is streakier than both 214/216; it reacted more strongly with dark ivory than 214 and maybe even a little bit stronger than 216. All the colours reduced, when reduced strongly. 216 reduced to brick red, others reduced to a little bit browner." – Maija-Leena Autio
"Soylent is not exactly the same color [as grass green], and one that I like a lot." – Marcy Lamberson
"Soylent is not as bright or as yellow [as grass green]. I liked it for floral beads." – Pat O'Brien
"Soylent is a more vibrant tone. It has a bit more punch to it." – Starleen Colon

"Soylent might look a little familiar, it is similar to Effetre 216 Grass Green and very close to Effetre 214 Nile Green [the crossed rod is the Soylent]." Read more at DragonJools blog.

"The primary colour My Lemongrass Murrini is Soylent, chosen for my club members who work with hot head torches because it is much less reactive to flame chemistry than Petrol Green." Read more at Kitzbitz Art Glass' blog.

"Soylent is a streaky colour anyway - but when you put it with EDP - look at what happens! Both the Soylent and the EDP separate, and in the case of the dots of the EDP on the Soylent - they come out a markedly different shade of purple. They are just reacting with each other and doing cool things all over the place!" Read more at DragonJools blog.

"Soylent with shards-  reduction brought out some of the red coppery look."

"I made my first pumpkins of the season, changing up the green for the scrolling vines to CiM Soylent encased in Effetre Grass Green. I really like the difference it makes - the green is still earthy, but a little more vibrant than I have had in the past." Read more at Kandice's blog.

"Soylent is almost non-distinguishable from grass green. I did a test bead with a stringer of Soylent over the grass green and the only way I could see the stringer is the line that forms in the middle of the stringer and it’s a bit more on the yellow side. I do, however, like the reaction of the line down the middle. There is also a little spreading and brown on the edges on black."

"Here is a photo of Soylent with Effetre white dots. Like many other 104 greens, you can see the ghosting around the dots. I think if you continue to heat it, Soylent will eventually swallow the dots more and more."

"I made a bead in every green shade of CiM I own, and also in similar Effetre shades." See more comparison beads including etched versions at Lush Blogs.
