Serengeti is described as an " opaque earthy brown with red undertones"

Messy Tester's Feedback

  • Serengeti is a unique addition to the 104 glass color palette.
Serengeti is a new color to the 104 palette. It is similar to Canoe, but with a more red saturation compared to a more golden tone with the Canoe and much darker than Autumn. It is a beautiful color. – Paula Schertz
"The warm, yet earthy glass is a unique addition to the 104 palette and lighter than CiM Canoe." See more at Heather's blog. – Heather Sellers

"Serengeti is a lovely warm tan color, it is slightly less reddish than Canoe. Perfect for animal beads. Serengeti melts beautifully with no shocking or bubbling."

"Serengeti is a very fun glass with many faces. The longer it’s worked, the more the lovely reds come to the surface. Winner! Winner!"
Gloria Sevey

"In rod form Serengeti looks caramel brown, and a dead ringer for Stone Ground, right down to the rings of colour at the ends. Once melted, I found that Serengeti bloomed into a rich burnt orange colour. Intrigued by the similarity with Stone Ground I wanted to see how they would compare melted. While they do strike to different shades, the reaction to silvered ivory is the same with both spreading and webbing wildly across the beads [I only added thin lines]. This melted like butter, and while it caused me no issues I did find that bubbles did appear as I melted. The rod was not shocky in any way, but did fascinate me!"
Trudi Doherty

"A Serengeti test revealed the initial rod color to be a warm caramel, however upon melting the opaque glass becomes more vibrant. The color reminds me of a Caloplaca [orange lichen]. No shocking or bubbling occurred during testing. Variations in color can be optained with quick cooling vs. extended heating." See more at Heather's blog.

"Serengeti melted smoothly with no shockiness or bubbles. I can see using it for a great color for animal fur for foxes, horses, dogs, etc. Encased with Maple, it is a nice shiny shade of golden brown. The Kalera’s Romance frit and silver foil with Calico frit both created nice organic colored beads. I will be using it as a nice base for frit, as the colors turned out fabulous."

"Absolutely loved the reactions with Serengeti when encased in particular."
