Creation is Messy Color Testing

I am so excited. I was able to test glass for Creation is Messy. I know it is a lot of work, but so very worth it. Plus, it will force me to actually blog again. I shut the site down for several months and lost all of my prior blogs. I guess it is time to get myself busy and doing something here.

First up I have the new Messy Color™ TARDIS.

Tardis melted just slightly stiff, but was still easy to work with. I didn’t have trouble with shockiness or bubbles. It is a unique color in the 104 palette, it seems a bit more saturated in color than the other semi-opaque Messy Color™ blues. It encased beautifully and I didn’t have any reactions with the colors I used with it.

 

Next up is the new Messy Color™ Canoe

MESSY COLOR™ 728 CANOE LTD RUN

MESSY COLOR™ 728 CANOE LTD RUN WITH SILVER FOIL WITH VAL COX OSCELOT SPOTS FRIT BLEND

Canoe melted smooth and easy. No problems with shockiness or bubbles. It is similar in color to Safari, but is a definitely more golden tinted than Safari. It would be a great color to use for various animal fur colors. It is a unique color to the 104 palette. There was not a problem encasing it. The only reactions I noted were on the P-276 Dark Ivory a slightly darker brown ring appeared on the outside of the Canoe dot. Also, there was a reaction with the silver foil and frit, the frit turned to a dark red brown.

 

Yep, there is still more...Messy Color™ Chrysalis

Chrysalis melted smooth and was not stiff. No shockiness or bubbles while melting. My bead turned out opaque and very, very close in color to Kryptonite, but I would say a bit more green than Kryptonite. It is gorgeous encased with Peacock Green. The frits and silver foil I used on it turned out beautiful. It does appear to be a unique color to the 104 palette. It did not react with any of the other colors I used with it.

 

Now comes Messy Color™ Spooky

MESSY COLOR™ 825 SPOOKY LTD RUN WITH SILVER FOIL WITH DOUBLE HELIX TRITON FRIT

Spooky melted nicely, no shockiness, but I did get some bubbles. It appears a bit more golden white to my eye than Marshmallow and more opaque than Cirrus. I do believe it fumed a bit with the silver foil, I do want to try just some foil without the frit to see what it does.

 

Introducing...Messy Color™ Monarch

MESSY COLOR™ 216 MONARCH LTD RUN WITH SILVER FOIL WITH GLASS DIVERSIONS PHOENIX FRIT MIX

Monarch melted smoothly with no shockiness or bubbles. It is a new color to the 104 palette. It was similar to Alley Cat, but a bit lighter. I did get a darker orange outline on one of the dots on the P-276 Dark Ivory, but not on all of them. Monarch encased with Spooky was a very pretty pale pink color.

 

Guess what's next...Messy Color™ Poolside

MESSY COLOR™ 553 POOLSIDE LTD RUN WITH SILVER FOIL WITH VAL COX ORIENTAL BLUE FRIT BLEND

Poolside melted with some bubbles, but no shockiness. I find it to be a unique color to the 104 palette, slightly less saturated than Aegean. I did get a little color reaction with the dots of Poolside on P-276 Dark Ivory, there is a darker ring of Poolside at the edges of the dots.

 

Another great new color Messy Color™ Venus

MESSY COLOR™ 911 VENUS LTD RUN

MESSY COLOR™ 911 VENUS LTD RUN WITH SILVER FOIL WITH GLASS DIVERSIONS APRICOT NECTAR FRIT BLEND

Venus is a beautiful shade of transparent coral. It is slightly lighter than Sakura. I didn’t have any trouble with shockiness, but did get a lot of bubbles. The problems with the bubbles was much better working it cooler, further out in the flame. It is a very pretty color and well worth the time to work it slower.

 

And the last one that I have completed to date...Messy Color™ Jelly Bean

MESSY COLOR™ 461 JELLY BEAN LTD RUN

MESSY COLOR™ 461 JELLY BEAN LTD RUN WITH SILVER FOIL WITH MESSY COLOR™ 505 FRENCH BLUE FRIT

Jelly Bean melted like butter and without shockiness or bubbles. Jelly Bean makes me think of a chartreuse version of Cirrus. It is definitely unique to the 104 color palette. Jelly Bean is a hit with me. I don’t know if it was the frit reacting with the silver foil or a combination of the frit, silver foil and Jelly Bean, but the French Blue frit developed a cool little bullseye in each frit dot.
