Looking at my auctions this week it looks like I only bought 5 colours... Pink, violet, clear, white and black....







I'm not usually a "pink" girl but this pink I love!

Kikki,

I don't ever leave home without my Reichenbach... I use it alot with hand pulled moretti colors...silver pink, opal yellow, ink blue... I reacts great with the high metal content in those colors and gives you amazing gradients and a color pallette moretti just can't offer...

these beads are a base of silver pink, or opal yellow. wraped in silver foil then lavished in reichenbach colors



this bead is a base of dark ivory (amazing with a lot of reichenbachs) and heliotrope over silver pink.


this bead is on a transparent purple moretti base, with lines of ink blue with lt. iris blue, dots of opal yellow with salmon, light turquoise with iris blue, dark turquoise with iris green, ink blue with heliotrope, opal yellow with fuchsia...


have fun...

Beautiful colors, Cindy!

That's what we did in Kimberly Affleck's class too - using a small amount of Reichenbach/Kugler with Moretti . . . just like using 96 COE frit, with no compatibility issues at all.

Cindy-those are insanely gorgeous!

I use tons and tons of reichenbach for my bones. These were all done w/the dark iris brown (dark raku).

Maybe you all know of this page, but at the Reichenbach website, there is a great chart showing the colors. They are just so saturated, that it is just hard to tell what they should be.
Take a look!

Here it is again - http://www.farbglas.de/rangeofcolors.html

Kikki,
I use the dark iris brown frit in almost all of my organic beads.
It looks great on a dark ivory or opal yellow base with silver foil.
Make sure you work it quickly cuz it will boil if you work it too long.

Nice beads!

I love this frit, and if you do boil it, just etch the bead and you can get this:

(over Effetre white and a few swirls of lapis blue on top of the frit. This one was really worked and "cooked")

Lisi,
Thanks for the tip, it makes me want to pull my hair out when
I am making an awesome bead and that damn frit starts to
boil. I have found that layering a transparent color over the areas
that you cooked can save the bead.
