CIM Cranberry for me. It's beautiful by itself but if I try to put it over anything, it cracks, even just a little bit.

Here is the cool webbing I mentioned:

It is just drops of Hades over StrikingColor then encased.

If you do a search you will find several threads about Cranberry cracking. I think it is just one batch that had the issue.

Joy that webbing with Hades is awesome! Gonna have to try it!

Diane thanks for idea of lot and get one labeled color each, can tell I will run out of money before I get to end of list of "wants", so great option.

I appreciate the ideas also about trials & glass mishaps, I need to keep better notes re: reactions, cracking etc (with all my types of glass)

Whenever I can get to torch, I just want to play (free fall!) ...not take notes etc! Of coursem I can never replicate anything beacuse am not sure what I used.

My 10hr work days kick the stuffing out of me!

This glass order feels like such a joy to me & can't wait. I appreciate you all for the suggestions

Thanks Sheila, funny how new color (or new glass type) can be motivating.

Am already trying to imagine what a bead encased with Marshmallow would look like, or an Army green organic bead...etc etc!

I will list colors no one else has mentioned.

I love French Blue and Cornflower. Both limited runs now because they were recently discontinued. Blue is my favorite color and those are just gorgeous.

I also love Grape Ape. It is a nice purple on the cheaper side. I tend to not buy anything that is over 3.00 a quarter pound.

I've liked every color I've tried from CIM. I think my favorites are Gelly's Sty, Canyon de Chelly, Kryptonite, and Crocus.
