Yummy. How did you know I've been on a "find the perfect pink" kick?

You could have spent that time making jellies

I got mine in Tucson from ABR, but I haven't seen any since then. Maybe we could convince NS to make us some more! I think it can do far more than I showed. I didn't try to flame strike it at all. I believe it can yield purples.

Parramore white - bought some from ABR and it goes a long way as just a base for beads. Really nice white, not boily at all. Did I send you some to play with? I thought I did, but my memory is ridiculously bad these days!

I only get mine in Tucson from ABR. I've seen them online but I think that they are hard to keep up with and probably not worth the trouble of photographing etc when they only get a limited one-time amount of it to begin with. I would call Dave at ABR and see if he has any right now. He gets shipments throughout the year for shows, but I don't know the schedule for that.

I needed to build up my confidence to even TRY the jellies. Off mandrel stuff is intimidating (but very fun). Hoping to get in the studio today; if I make it I'll give a jelly a shot. But you have to promise not to laugh!

I love pinks too - I finally decided to color test and keep the beads in the studio so I would have a reference on what color looks like what. Still have several pinks to go, but working on it! I'll share whatever I get done but I hope you aren't in a hurry. lol!

Love all of them, especially the funky citrus! Thanks so much for posting all of the beads. Do you mind sharing what annealing schedule you are using to get these great pinks? I've done searches on them, and have found 6 diferrent ones, so confused

Rated your thread 5 stars

thank you, Donna! My Glasshive came programmed but I'm pretty sure it's Brent's (Mr. Smiley's) schedule. I'll dig around and see if I have it written anywhere. I have a fuji, not sure how to pull the schedule out of it.

Thank you Angela! I got the beads cleaned today, hope to photograph them tomorrow. Love playing with pink glass, always exciting to open the kiln. Yum!

Default Amber Purple & Loki

alrighty, finally got them photographed. I am not posting the Mai Tai, as the colors just didn't come out right. I know this is an awesome color, I'm certain it is operator error. Need another go round with this one - I've seen the pics of what Mai Tai can do, but I'm a Mai Tai rookie. I'll post when I get more beads made. Really sorry about the fuzzy beads. Didn't catch that in time to redo pics.

Amber Purple (inside and full sun):

1. AP encased
2. AP not encased
3. white base, AP, encased
4. white base, AP, not encased


5. white base, AP, lg clear frit, not encased
6. white base, AP, lg clear frit, encased
7. clear base, AP, encased
8. clear base, AP, not encased

Loki's Lipstick (inside/full sun):

1. Loki, not encased
2. Loki encased
3. white base, Loki not encased
4. white base, Loki encased


5. white base, Loki, lg clear frit, not encased
6. white base, Loki, lg clear frit, encased
7. clear, Loki, not encased
8. clear, Loki, encased

Default Loki

I really liked the Loki with the white base and clear frit not encased so I made a set of those. Hard to see this bead in the group shot, so I'm showing it separately too as the set. AP done this way is very close to the same look.

No problem! I know I have learned so much from others on LE and the web in general, so it's nice to give back. Feel free to post any pics you have of pink stuff!

you're welcome, my pleasure.

Here's a set I did last week with Tequila sunrise (white base), silver creek frit and partially encased with clear stringer.

Have you ever heard of a GA color called Atomic Kumquat? It looks pinkish and was wondering if it was difficult to work with -

It's either really new or an experimental. Watch Maui Greenstones color testing thread ... I'm pretty sure he has it on his list!! I can't wait to see what it does for him ... I'm seen some really awesome pictures of it.

Do you have a link for the color testing thread by any chance?

It's says Atomic Kumquat is an "old school" color that has been new and improved for less air, more UV reaction and better working properties.

I think this is the thread magpie was talking about, but I don't see that color on the list. http://www.lampworketc.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=243016

ETA: I did find this one from Maui tho, with AK shown in a jelly: http://www.lampworketc.com/forums/sh...6&postcount=10

Atomic Kumquat is a old Glass Alchemy that they had retired and now are bring back to there line up with those improvements. i never have the old stuff but got some of the new and when you use it it is almost clear in regular light and then under the black light you get a light pink glow not that strong but still cool.

http://www.mountainglass.com/Alchemy...at-GA0263.html

From the results i get i can tell you the bright area at the top and on some of the bump that i thought looks purplely pink is the reflection of the purplish florescent black light bulb. which show how close the black light needs to be to get a good pink glow. but i do think it we have some cool applications. But just remember it is clear with out the black light.
