This post documents part of a sample strand project my guild did back in 2011.. Shown here are
- oz [pretty much a standard transparent emerald green, so no notes.]
- pumpkin —this color ‘self cases’ in transparent if heated hot enough
- desert pink —slightly scummy, cf (compared) to other opqs (session I); less scum using sm. slightly oxygenated –i.e. blue flame. 1 rod had a bubble 1/2 way thru, otherwise easy to work AND color retains well, doesn't burn out (session II)
- french blue
- grape ape —pretty opq mauvey purple
For those interested, these beads were made on a lynx with propane and regalia 10lpm concentrator. They would've been made on either 3/32 or 1/16 inch mandrels, probably using fusion release.
