Default What is EDP?

I just bought Corina's color reactions booklet. Seems a good buy for 5 bucks.

But there are a lot of references to a color that is called EDP.

Could not find reference to EDP on this site. Nor could I find anything about it on Franz when doing a search there either.

Thought it might mean extra deep purple, but that search did not help either.

Newbie question for sure but what is EDP?

cheers

Effetre Purple #254. Also known as Evil Devitrifying Purple. It can go chalky and whitish when overheated. I love it.

Ahh, yes thanks. I seem to remember Corina talking about that in her book "Passing the Flame".

It is Effetre pastel Purple 591254, and I don't see it on the Frantz site. Some like the older stock better.

Looks like they are out. I do get similar effects from 253 known as striped pink. Also Sedona...might be a few others. Sedona is awesome.

I love sedona, striped pink...what I have seems to be more bubble gum pink, maybe I need to revisit it.

I've used edp before, i just couldn't find it. And as said, I swear someone just asked and Mike said it was in or coming in, but I can't find that convo.

All very interesting. So much to know.

Out of 90 beads featured in Corina's color reactions booklet, 17 used EDP. Seems it would be a popular color but appears that it is not (readily) available.

Older stock of EDP is still floating around. One important thing to remember is that old EDP is a leaded glass, about 27%. This may be a problem for some people so it's a good thing to keep in mind.

Frantz usually has some fun and reactive stuff on sale. (Posting this on June 10th of 17) I still have EDP. It can be tricky if you're not used to working with it. I either work it hot or cold but if you reheat, especially repeatedly you get the dreaded "yuck" look. You can get it nice and hot and the yuck will go away. They reformulated EDP to try to fix the yuck problem and then they ended up making it not as fun.

You might find a better solution with the Gaffer Girls version of Z99..I forget the exact name but it has "purple" in the name. Now that is some fun stuff!

Reichenbach has a couple purples in 104 that are fun too. Purple Rose and something with Lilac in the name maybe?

I've tried the Reichenbach's, those are great, but I want that pink. Those are mostly blue purples, or at least the ones I've tried ? I've tried some of the pinks too but it must be the lead I'm looking for, that bright pinky purple. I'm open to color suggestions always.

Agreed. I've used EDP for years, one of the first colors I bought was that.
Gaffer no longer makes lampwork cane though Though Reichenbach has a version as well, Purple Rose.
