Default Color ID help



I may add to this a lot, I have shorts and I don't really know what is what in a bunch of shorts I have.

This color though I want to buy more, I thought it would be greenish but it's not, it's better

TIA

The rod looks a little dark to be english ivy. Unfortunately thats as much input as I too have a bunch of shorts and may just hijack your thread in the near future. Mwa ha ha ha.

Definitely a member of the Amber Purple family. English Ivy, Loki's Lipstick are two similar colors but that looks more almost brown rather than light green or red.

Also abrimagery's website sometimes has the rod in their pictures for some colors. It has helped me identify a couple of colors.

Isn't it frustrating when they aren't tagged? We have pictures of the colors we stock that show the rod color before and after being heated with a flame. You should be able to match pictures. Click on the picture and it will enlarge. We sort by brand: Northstar, Glass Alchemy, TAG and Momka.

Silver colors always look different in unworked rods between batches, so it's tough to say!

From the color of the rod, I would also vote for green flambe. Especially if it goes very clear when hot.
