  • Description

1/8 Kilo of Watermelon (Ltd Run) CiM Glass Rods, 5-6 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.

Watermelon is described as "a cloudy transparent watermelon orange"

"Watermelon is a very good color! A little problem with cloudy transparents like Watermelon- they are very delicate and easy to burn. That means that on the bead surface white foam is visible. These color needs to be heated on a very small fire."
Olga Ivashina

"Watermelon is an interesting 'cloud power' glass that is new from CiM. The rod that I was given to test had quite a few bubbles making it a bit shocky so prewarming it in the kiln was necessary to conserve the glass. This set of beads used CiM Unicorn as a base with Watermelon encasement and original Poison Apple ends. Note this is the older formula of Poison Apple that turns opaque after annealing. Dots of Double Helix Oracle Black created clean dots on each bead. Spacers are solid Watermelon and Poison Apple." Read more at Darlene's blog.

"Watermelon is a unique, gorgeous, cloudy, swirly, orangey-pink. Very, very nice!"

"Watermelon is my winner for the latest round of testing. It's a brighter, more saturated colour than Fruit Punch. It's hard to describe the colour, more of a light red than a pink. I like it." Read more at DragonJools blog.

"Watermelon describes this colour perfectly. Quite an orangey-red on its own, this glass can add a lovely tint when layered over other colours. It melts smoothly and easily. Very much a no-fuss kinda glass." Here shown plain and over Effetre white.

"Looks just like watermelon with a streaky hue- can look like spun silk if applied in layers and swirled. Pretty lush colour, perfect for summer."
Juliette Mullett



"Watermelon is one of the new 'cloud power' colours that CiM has developed, made with clear glass that contains colour pigments giving a striation effect. The first bead I made was the heart bead, made purely with Watermelon. This made the bead look more like a solid colour, as I wanted to see the striations, I decided to experiment by adding layers of clear. The round one in the middle was made with a layer of clear, encased with Watermelon and repeated. The donut shape bead on the right was made with a thick clear base and encased once with Watermelon. Both of these show the special effect of the glass, and means a little will go a long way! Watermelon is an interesting glass and you can get different effects depending on how you use it."

"This heart pair is made with solid Watermelon. I really like the bright juicy colour and semi transparent 'powdery' look. The negative with this glass for me is that I like to add small dots of glass at a time to the faces of heart beads and press several times to build up the perfect shape. I am finding that the tip of the rod boils easily and leaves micro bubbles when I add the extra glass." Read more at Kitzbitz Art Glass' blog.

"Watermelon is an orangey red cloudy transparent and it’s lovely. Again, it’s a very well-behaved glass and it requires no striking or faffing to get consistent results. The photo shown here is all Watermelon over Effetre White 204." Read more at Laura's blog.
