CIM 651 Grape Ape; CIM 703-3 Butter Pecan Unique

Some great grapes coming from CIM - some very nice purples.

First up, we have an opaque purple, very reminiscent of the Mor. Dark Violet - even down to the slight grey discolouration it develops. And the slight streakiness. (Left bead)

On the right, we have an oddlot (Unique) of Butter Pecan. Much richer in colour than the original butter pecan, I would categorize this as a dusty rose. It goes grey when hot, like the coral family of glasses. Nice colour, a little streaky - could be a good tanned skin colour for sculptural work. Would probably look awesome w Turquoise. Might have to try that.
