I like CiM 788 Mink for making ponies - it's a very nice brown, and quite unlike any other brown. I have blogged it before.
However - I got a very interesting reaction/effect/whathaveyou the other day. Notice the crackle effect on the horse.
I thought that the next one I made didn't have the same pattern - see second photo, but I see now, that with the magnification that the photo affords me - that I did get it a little.
The first one is on white base, and the second is on ivory.
Not sure what happened. I may have inadvertently been working in a slight reduction flame - or perhaps there was a contaminant on the glass. Whatever it is - it's a pretty cool effect.
So - now I have to figure out what's causing it.
