I always am curious to see if translucent colours will stay that way, or if they will turn opaque, so I could hardly wait to try this one.
This pair of self-coloured spacers have retained their translucency, except, on the far right of the rightmost one, where is has started to opacify (is that a word?) - turn opaque.
This is Mint Lozenge dots on white (left) and on ivory (right). The dots have sunk in like transparent, making a nice effect.
And this is done on the Sirius system mandrel - and here you can see the opacity vs translucent very strongly.
When making these, I keep the "leading" edge - the smooth edge (bottom - this picture) -warmer, to smooth the ridges together, so this it brought back to glowing several times - vs the trailing edge - which just generally cools and I leave it alone. This accounts, I think, for the opaque vs translucent.
CiM Mint Lozenge - lovely colour, Sea Foam or Amazonite - definitely a must for me.
Very pretty colour, and a great wave pendant too.ReplyDelete
