Mor 256 - Dark Rose

Lovely colour - and this is a lovely batch of it. Moretti 256 - Dark Rose (or Dark Pink).

Repeated light heating shifts it to a purple - reheat to molten to bring back to pink. The pink one, I had to reheat to flowing to get it round - I let it get off centre - see the colour difference?

Slightly reactive with turquoise - well, the term reactive is confusing. The turquoise reacts with ivory to form a line at the border (old news) - this is more of a separation - where it looks like a clear version of your opaque magically shows up in the centre. Try turquoise on EDP (Mor 254 - Purple, Orchid, or otherwise known as Evil Devitrifying Purple) to really see this effect in action.

Here's the same shot again, a little closer. Notice also how the ivory dots on the far right bead bled like crazy. (Got fuzzy around the edges.)

And the big lentil, the rapid cooling of mashing has given it some wonderful colour variations.

Really pretty, girly colours.

Oh, and Kung Hei Fat Choy! Wishing you a Happy and Prosperous Year of the Ox!
