Test Results :: Lemonade


CiM Lemonade (CiM318) is a pale ivory semi-opaque colour. I had the same kind of unluck with it at first that I had with Egg White, and wish it was less prone to streaking and boiling. I did look on CiM's page though, and see that other people (probably ones who work cooler than I do) had much better luck with it.

The best results I got with Lemonade came when I covered it in silver glass. Also, it separates Copper Green, and I love that effect a lot.


Here you can see how ham-handed my initial approach to Lemonade was. This colour scums and boils very easily, and I work sort of hot, so I got a lot of scumming in my test beads.


Silver disappears on top of Lemonade, and when it is reduced and encased it sits like a solid whitish blanket under the clear.


Lemonade makes a pretty base colour for reducing silver glass frit on top of.


Copper Green separates on top of Lemonade, and Ivory thins out and almost disappears on top of it. The Copper Green thing is cool, the Ivory thing is a bit odd. I don't think I've seen this effect before.

When I used Lemonade on top of Copper Green, the edges of the stringer work curdled.

I don't seem to have any pictures of other beads made with Lemonade, but if I find some or make more, I"ll come back and update this.
