Default What are your favourite boro mix recipes?

oki...
I got some boro from Smiley a while back and now I have some rods that I got from danelady in the Chinese Auction. What I need to know is what works best together and what doesn't? I'll list what I have from danelady, the things I have from smiley are little flat rectangles.

oki this is what is labeled:
Peacock Chameleon
Cobalt Lite
Caramel
Millenium Moss
Emerald Lite
Teal Sparkle
Poppy
Black
Turbo Cobalt

Then i have three unlabelled colours
One is a kind of shimmer coral red colour, that has one tip that is white
The other two are greens
One looks like Millenium Moss but without the slight sparkle to it
And the other its a light olive colour also without the sparkle to it

Any and all help is GREATLY appreciated, I would like to try it sometime, but I don't want to get too addicted to it seen as I can't get it here in Holland yet...

Thanks in advance!

Stripe Caramel, Peacock Chameleon and Poppy over either the black or the Turbo Cobalt, put a stripe of clear between the color stripes (use a 3 or 4 mm rod if necessary).

Make your stripes a total of about 1" long. Heat, partially melt in.

Then either pull as a twisty cane for beads, or twist in place, melt in, mash flat and pull a loop and make a pendant.
