Colour I'd Like to See

Hello - anybody out there making new glass colours and looking for inspiration?

Here ya go. Magenta. I'm sure that I am not alone in wanting a super-saturated opaque magenta.

Not just a red purple - but capital M Magenta. As in the three primaries in printers' ink (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow - CMYK - the 4th colour is the Key colour - generally black. How's that for trivia? )

The pic on the left is the a pair of pliers, and the wristband from the GAS wrap party - Glass Artists Society - that I was at - geez it was only two weekends ago. It seems like a lot more now! Anyway - I thought it looked like an awesome colour - and it looked fabulous w my turquoise beads - and I don't have anything remotely like that colour.

So - Magenta please. I'm sure others would agree!

Vote with your comments!


  1. Ooo! Yes please! I'm with you on magenta. We NEEDS magenta to add to our glass palette :D

  2. Yeap, there are just some things that I don't understand ... why is there no magenta? No opaque hot pink (which is more or less like magenta I guess)? Why is there such a lack of nice browns ... all I can find is either a red-brown or something I would call something-else-brown. Still looking for a really nice olive green, even though one of the new CIM colors (Commando I think is the name) is pretty cool. And how about a really nice navy blue ... not lapis, not cornflower, not cobalt, but navy?

  3. I think in our first lesson I asked about hot pink - you can bet that I'd be one of the first in line for it!!!
