A couple of months back I sat down to test two glass colours, or more specifically compare them. There appeared to be very little difference between in rod form so I wondered how they would differ, if at all after being in the flame.
CiM's Mermaid was a breath of fresh air to me when it was released. Looking at the sample online I just knew that it was going to be a perfect match to the only shade of 'blue' (it is really teal but slightly more on the blue side) I like to wear these days. I can never find any clothing with that particular shade in it, aside from a favorite top I purchased a few years ago, so a nice necklace & bracelet will be the perfect accessories to pull in an idea I have centring around that colour.
Somewhere along the way I got carried away in my testing, pulling out rods of glass that I thought would be a shade lighter than the previous one until I got to the palest in what I had available & then I started on the blues.I stopped before I went through my complete palette of blue glasses realising that every colour I had used was a colour that I had seen water appear. From deep freshwater springs & tropical lagoons to huge bodies of ocean & inland lakes. Put together like this it really makes one realise what an amazing element water is.
