Default Double Helix Olympia Rain

Hi..I misplaced my very small stash of the very first 3 colors of DH I purchased when they first came out.I carefully put it wrapped and away so I wouldn't lose it as I had only ever bought Effrete and it was like gold to me.So of course I lost it in my overwhelming compulsion to buy more and more new glass.I finally found my DH and noticed I had not only the regular sized(about 4mm) rods but had a big handful of 8-9 MM rods.They were not labeled but I tested both batches today and they indeed are DH OR.I know there were problems with it but don't remember what they were and I would like to actually use it.Does anyone have tips...photos especially of what to do with it...and if you recommend I send it to you for further testing..well..you for sure will make me laugh and I could use a good laugh today

you can go to DH's website and see pics of some things people have done, and get tips on how to work it. I love this color!

Seems to me that Olympia Rain is the best for Amy's storming tutorial! DH did a limited run of OR after they'd discontinued it because she begged/pleaded/demanded!

Have fun!!! (I wish I had some OR... I've been storming Aion and Aion2)

Smile One I thought worked out nicely...



This is Stormed Aion, over CiM Hades, encased in Eff 006 clear, with a base of TAG Dalai Lama, Dk. curdled Ivory, with reduced Aurae accent dots...

When I remember to take notes, I start from the "inside" at the mandrel and work my way out. eg. Dalai Lama/Dk.Ivory/Hades/stormed Aion/Eff 006/Aurae
