Yes… more beads 😉
Who can resist shiny glossy ball shapes?!

So this time I wanted to post my results when I mixed some of the new pinks I’d purchased early summer with my Formentera-inspired glass colours.

And, to add a little excitement to this experiment, I invited two gorgeous Reichenbach glass rods to the torch party: one called ‘Pink Lady’ (#L-2015-T) and the other ‘Opal Raspberry’ (#L-6219-O).

I also applied stringers of the lovely Effetre ‘Evil Purple’ to some of these beads; on closer inspection, there are some interesting reactions to note! However, cataloguing all the chemistry can become a bit overwhelming… albeit addictive!

Whilst working in the flame, I ‘felt’ the difference between the Effetre glass and the Reichenbach glass. The latter seems firmer and takes a little longer to melt.

After working with so many rods at the torch, even in the short time I’ve been lampworking, I find it very amusing to sense such differences. Perhaps the fingers and brain develop a new intimate sensory language all to itself…?

A romantic thought indeed 🙂
