And this is pink. A beautiful, sweet, innocent pink. Your challenge will be to keep it a pure and dainty pink.
(Photo to the right here shot on my phone and in bad lighting. Colour is pretty close though.)
Photos below shot in studio lighting - colours more intense, makes it easier to see the differences.
Because, as you work it, it drifts to a richer, more salmony colour.
Here are 4 self-coloured spacers. They have stayed pretty. And pretty close to the rod colour.
Here are 4 more simple spacers, with a core of white, or periwinkle. For retaining that pretty pink, the white core is your best bet. The pink layered over the periwinkle gives you a lovely shade of purple that is hard to get otherwise.
Lovely. Not as pink, but still lovely.

And head to head. I don't know if encasing the pink in clear would stop the transformation, or if it is a function of the repeated heating and cooling cycle. It's worth a shot.
Sakura does NOT seem to have a problem with reduction and low-oxygen (like the Effetre Rubino). I have no trace of black smudges or grey build up when I turned the oxygen down.
I think this one is a winner. A really pretty pink. And I'm not a "pink" person.
