Thanks Patty!

It's funny, but my Little Boy Blue doesn't look like that. It is definitely green.

CIM Little Boy Blue

It's not supposed to be blue, is it? It's green in the rod, and it stays green after it's melted. Or am I doing something wrong?

I want to make layered dots on white. I've done it before, but of course the BD no longer works. I'll have to try Tuxedo - Reichenbach seems to be a bit pricier.

Non-Spreading Black - Does it Exist?

I was buying Black Diamond from BellaDonna, but my last batch works just like Intense Black from Effetre - and spreads all over the place. Are there any blacks out there that behave?
