Default Whats the difference between these colors?

Zimmerman z-99 and z-851 lilac rose, cane is mostly what I'm wondering about but the frit is good too.
I haven't had a chance to try the lilac rose.
Do they work up and look different when melted?
If you have pics I would really appreciate seeing them.
Thanks a bunch

They are very similar in color and reaction. You will be happy with lilac rose, imho.

If I get out to torch tomorrow I can make a bead with both colors but the soonest I could have pictures would be late Wednesday.

Thanks Elizabeth.
I have some old purple rose and just got some lilac rose so I will try to use a little of both soon here to see how they behave and appear after being melted.
Hopefully I can get to it soon but will also be looking forward to any pics you have when they're available.

Hi Bubby. I thought I posted a quick response to this thread last night, but I guess not. I was going to say last night that the lilac rose is just a half a shade more grape colored and that I'd be back today with a scan to show you. So anyway, here is the scan.

Has anyone compared it to the Reichenback Lilac Red. I bought it because it looked like the z-99 rods but it doesn't have all the rings to it.

Killerbeadz that is a beautiful set!!!

Just for you, Irene, I added the scan of R-97 below the first chart for easy comparison.

Thanks Kay.....Looks the same on the first two colors but totally different on the rest. It's a really great color but those zimmerman colors were awesome. It's a shame that didn't want the glass to continue....
