"There's absolutely nothing in this color that says 'brown' to me. In rod form, it looks like some kind of bright caramel candy - or maybe a light, vivid terracotta. I didn't see peach at first, at all, so I waited awhile before trying it. When I finally melted it, it went much lighter. And when I tried layering it with a pale pinkish transparent, I got a warm, sweet peach color." Read more at Kandice's blog.

"I love Adobe! It is such a nice neutral base and combined with ivory, Hades, and transparent amber it rocks!"

"This second batch of CiM Adobe Limited Run is similar to the first batch, but has enough differences that for me it is not really the same glass, although the colour is very similar. Compared to the first batch of Adobe, the colour of this second batch is a little lighter and a little cooler. The first batch of Adobe pinkened, darkened and sheened up when reduced, but this one does not. Regardless, I am thrilled that there will be more Adobe in some form or another. When a colour is this appealing, I'd far rather have it be slightly different from batch to batch than not have any of it at all." Read more at Melanie's blog.

"Put it with ivory and you get some crazy stuff happen'! From the bottom in this pic, the rod of glass, a mandrel with a solid Adobe, and a bead with an Adobe base, ivory dots with Adobe dots on top. Look at how they have crawled and bled and deformed! On the 2nd mandrel is an ivory bicone. Thin trails of Adobe were laid down, heated and raked. Check out how the ivory has a crazed look between the Adobe- and how it has separated." Read more at DragonJools blog.

"CiM might classify this as a neutral, but I call it a stunning earthy coral. An opaque coral that is not at all juicy bright orange like typical Moretti corals, but warm inviting light coral color that pretty much goes with anything. As usual, I tried it out with the silver foil, silver wire and frit. I adore it. I definitely need more of it. The foil becomes becomes metallic after coming out of the kiln."

"Silver leaf on top of Adobe turns a bronzey colour and fumes the Adobe to a rich brown. When the silver leaf is reduced and encased, it turns quite blue under the Clear. The Adobe is a little lighter once it's been encased, but not much." Read more at Melanie's blog.

“Adobe is definitely browner after working than it is in the rod, where it appears more of a brick red.” Read more at Helen’s blog.

"This little lentil also features Adobe, but as the base of the bead under all kinds of silver and silver glass. The Adobe fumes a much darker shade with the addition of those elements." Read more at Melanie's blog.

"This photo shows a group of beads made with different base colors but each has the same DH Ekho dots. It is clearly visible how the dots on Adobe are much brighter and more colorful than the dots on Unique Adamantium -1 and Unique Butter Pecan -5. Each bead was made in the same way with the same amount of reduction before being encased in clear dots."
