I have several new Creation is Messy colors to show. None are available to order yet, but couldn’t wait to show off my findings. I have even added them to the color gallery yet. These are all limited runs.

First we have Sunset Crush, C0211. It is a nice mellow orange, hinting a bit towards coral. There are subtle signs that this color will strike from light to a darker

This is Orange Crush, C0211. It is a strong transparent orange. Not much fuss. Does need to be struck with maybe a bit more patience than other batches of transparent orange I have worked with before, but not by much.

This one is called It Ain’t Easy Being Green, C0428. I would describe this color as a neon Dirty Martini. It is a a pale green, falling in line with being lighter than Copper Green.

This is Ocher, C0308. These went in the kiln slightly transparent, but came out totally opaque. A gorgeous color. Love that it stays nice and bright!

And here we have Jupiter Storm, C0812. It is definitely a striking color. I would equate this one with Powder Pink in workability. This one needs to be cooled quite a bit and then reheated high in the flame to get color. Nice peachy pinks though!!

This is Jellyfish, C0604. In direct sunlight, this is even more beautiful than Dark Lavender. (Which, btw, is currently OOS everywhere! Has been for awhile and doesn’t look like it will be back anytime soon either.) Under fluorescent light this stays the same, no color shifting to blue like other lavenders either. This is a big plus.

The bodacious blue is called Marine, C0525. Love it! Want more! Was expecting it not to etch like Leaky Pen, but look…it etched nicely.

Gypsy, C0613. So dark of a purple it looks black. (Which we all know that effetre black really is a super dark purple. So there….might just have to try this out and see how it stands up to whites and such. I did work this over New Violet and its perfect. Gorgeous solid purple. Will just need to be used sparingly to see the color.

Here  we have Flax, C0715. A booger to photograph since the color is so pale. But this will be a nice shade of pale amber or brown to use. Even more pale than Straw Yellow.

Lastly, we have Rudolph, C0113. A transparent reddish orange, that went a bit cloudy on me quick.
