Testers reported

"I've used Lingonberry here over white on the flowers and over a core of white on the small beads. It's a lovely bright berry pink which behaved well in the flame. I kept an oxygen rich flame and didn't get any grey flecks as sometimes happens with rubino. There was no shockiness and the colour didn’t disappear leaving the gold look you can get with pinks. The paler beads are Heather with Elphaba dots and the green beads are Limelight with Elphaba."

"Pretty much every tester mentions that Lingonberry has a ‘butterscotch cast’ or that it yellows in certain lights. I didn’t find this at all. I notice that Alexis Berger used a Hot Head torch and she didn’t get the butterscotch/yellowing either which makes me think it could be a working temperature thing? I work slow and cool so maybe that’s a reason for no yellowing? Now, on to the unfun part of my findings… I made six beads with CiM Foam encased with a thin layer of Lingonberry. As I was cleaning the beads three of them cracked. The other three are okay at the moment but that doesn’t mean they won’t develop fractures further down the line. We shall see. The cracks are compatibility ones as opposed to thermal ones. The photo shows the fractures. Obviously this only means that I found that Lingonberry has compatibility issues with Foam. It doesn’t even mean that others couldn’t combine those two glasses and create stable beads. As I always say, there are so many factors and variables involved in beadmaking – torch, working style, technique, what phase the moon is in etc – and two beadmakers can use the same two glasses but get entirely different results."

"Lingonberry is a rich juicy hot pink shade. It worked very nicely in the flame with no issues. Here I have used it to make my own filigrano rod, layering it over a white base, and encasing over it with clear. The colour is quite saturated that you don't need much to achieve a gorgeous pink. I've then used the cane on the bottom part of the heart to create a swirling ribbon effect! Another winner!"

"Lingonberry is beautiful. Truly deep garnet color. It can have a bit of butterscotch shimmer, but not too much."

"Lingonberry is a very deep pomegranate/rose in my opinion when used as a thick layer. It is a darker rose than Pink Pansy. When layered over white, it is a lovely rose. Not shocky and no issues with bubbling or scumming. Played nicely with dichroic and silver glass on the surface of the bead. I did not incur any livering when I reduced the silver glass. In certain lighting there is a butterscotch or gold tone that appears on the pictured bead which I assume came from the reducing which is reminiscent of gold fumed beads."

"Beautiful in rod form and quite unexpected in bead form when mixed with silver glass. A gorgeous ruby pink colour. The end result was a slightly less ruby pink; more muted in colour with a subtle yellow tinge but just as beautiful. As I started melting the tip of the rod for the gather it quickly became apparent that this is a sort of striking glass and so I worked it with heat, cool, heat, cool and repeated until the colour darkened. As I was heating and cooling I noticed a very subtle yellow tinge to the glass. I wanted to see how this glass behaved with silver glass and the results were amazing. It created a mustard like threading throughout along with the iridescence, a really unusual combination, love it!"

"I used Lingonberry to make a glass flower [on my Hot Head] and I know that others have experienced a yellowing with this ruby color. I had no problems with that, it just looks like a fantastic Rubino Oro glass to me. In fact, I think it was one of the best in terms of staying clean and not developing black spots."
 Alexis Berger
"This photo is lit from behind. There is a butterscotchy sheen on the surface of the beads. I laid a very fat clear stringer on the larger beads and didn’t see any significant difference."
 Gloria Sevey
"Pink Pansy is more pink than Cranberry Pink. Lingonberry is just dark. Both Pink Pansy and Lingonberry seem to yellow in certain lightings, with Pink Pansy doing it more readily."
