Test Results :: Juniper

CiM Juniper (CiM459) reminds me a lot of another Limited Run called Army Men, except that Juniper is more on the blue side and maybe a bit lighter than that colour. This colour is very similar in hue to ASK Aloe Vera / Kugler Isar Blue, although it is a touch lighter and less reactive. Juniper is quite a pretty colour, which helped me to forgive it for being a bit shocky. It is very streaky.

Juniper doesn't change when you reduce it.

Here is Juniper with Effetre Green Cave, CiM Commando, CiM Eucalyptus, CiM Split Pea, and Effetre Moss Green.

It is darker and bluer than Split Pea, and is both brighter and bluer than Commando.

Unlike CiM Army Men, Juniper does not yellow with the addition of silver. Reducing and encasing silver on top of Juniper makes the silver into a smooth silvery blanket that turns blue at its edges.

Striking silver glass is pretty on top of Juniper. I got a beautiful starting strike our of my TerraNova2 frit.

Juniper separates on top of everything I used it with here except for CiM Peace.  Copper Green, Opal Yellow, and Ivory all separate on top of Juniper. Additionally, when these other colours are used on top of Juniper, it takes on a quite billowing, curdled appearance underneath the other colours.  I love that this colour does not develop a dark line reaction with Ivory.

Here are some other beads that include some Juniper.
