  • Description

1/4 Kilo of Mantis (Ltd Run) CiM Glass Rods, 11-12 rods.

Ltd Run colours are manufactured in extremely small quantities and might not be repeated again so the advice is always to buy as much as you can if you like it.

Mantis is described as "a lime green misty opal"

"Poison Apple, Wheatgrass, Eclectus Parrot, Mantis, Ectoplasm, and Budgerigar all melted smoothly with no shockiness or bubbles. They bring some beautiful new colors to the 104 palette. I am loving the new translucents and misty opals. These are great and don’t bubble and boil like some of the alabasters and opalinos."
Paula Schertz

"There are a lot of greens in this new batch of colours and many of them are opals. Mantis is a vibrant green and it has a slight misty opalness to it. You can see faint wisps of mistiness in the spacers but its subtle translucency is more apparent in the heart bead which was worked for much longer in the flame. Mantis melted well with no shockiness, bubbles or scumming. This photograph was taken indoors in natural daylight." Read more at Laura's tumblr.

"Mantis is a new misty opal from CiM, and if you like your greens bright then this will be one for you. This melted with no issues at all and has a normal viscosity. This is so pretty I just let it sing with the addition of some colourful raku frit. This stays translucent, but with a slight misty haze. A joy to work with, and I look forward to working with this glass more to see how it looks layered over other colours!"
Trudi Doherty

"This really is a lovely fresh, almost aloe vera green with a slight foggy but semi translucent inner appearance that appears to glow from within. Very pretty."
