Default Looking for "Apricot" frit

I have some Reichenbach Apricot and it's sort of a blah color. I'd like some frit in the same family for it, but the peachy/salmon/apricot blends I see usually throws a hot pink, yellow or orange into the mix that I do not want.

So something salmony (lol)

I like the look of Val's White Onyx, but it seems that has a yellow, or is it soft enough it may not show up on apricot?

I've looked into Georgia Peach, it looks like it has an orange in it?

Echeveria, that I've looked at, does it strike to white easily? Looks interesting.

Wish they still made rods

I suppose I could buy a bunch of Gaffer frits and make my own, at least I don't have to buy a ton like Reichenbach. Some salmon, some coral...hmmm

Not sure, I have not used mine. I think Gaffer sells 2 tsp samples.

You may be able to find what you're looking for here:

I still have loads of colors to test to add to all this, I'll try to get to that this summer. Please note I don't sell the glass, I just tested it.

If you're looking for a blend, it's easy to make your own. You can probably get the amount of a color you want from That Frit Girl.

I've looked at your site, and many others, like I said it seems every mix has some hot color thrown in, yellow/pink/orange. I do appreciate your site.

Leslie is my go to since she sells just the colors and not only blends.

Thanks, will try it out. Funny I have both Reichenbach Apricot and Flamingo in rod form, and they're both blah fleshy colors, virtually identical. Looks like salmon would be nice as is.

Do you use Bullseye at all? Sunset Coral is a really pretty color.... also of course Gold ruby over opal yellow also makes a really pretty peachy color.
