Since Moretti doesn't make a fushia or even a dark pink, does anyone know what colors to mix to come up with a very dark pink or fushia? I have tried mixing light red and white and get a rose color, it's pretty but not what I'm looking for. Any ideas? Thanks. Joan

Color Mixing Chart (http://www.listen-up.org/kitty/beads/mix%20chart/color%20chart.htm) by Kay (listenup).

Also, at the very bottom of the chart is a link to more color mixing.

Looking through both charts, I don't see any dark fuschia.

Hopefully someone will have another suggestion for you!

Do a search of the technical archives for many more discussions about pink/fuschia glass ideas.

It seems I have gotten some fairly good hot pinks by mixing: EDP and rubino, Lt. Pink Moretti and Rubino, and the Dark Pink Alabastro moretti and rubino. I KNOW I have some things that are fairly dark and bright pink...lol...just trying to rack my brain to remember how I made them. If using a technique where layering is doable, any of these combos ( solid on bottom, Rubino on top) should give a fairly vibrant pink. Don't try Coral and rubino for this though...that color is pretty (IMO), but is more of an Old Rose shade. The mixing charts are excellent, and you should check them out. In fact, I'm going to take my own advice and go take a peek myself! :)

For a nice hot pink/fuschia - try mixing Bullseye cranberry pink with neo lavender, both transparent. It's yummy! This bead is that mix with neo lavender dots. :)

Lisa that is yummy! So tell me, just how long does it take to melt bullseye on a hot head? Twice as long as Moretti? Three times as long?

I'm still sending Santa vibes about that oxegyn generator to go with my minor torch sitting in a box.... :)

Not sure about the HH with B/E.
Here are B/E pinks, and neo lavender!
Always have fun!

I'm on a HH, and it is a little slower with the BE, but not even twice as long to melt. If your beads are small, like up to 12mm or so, then the difference compared to Effetre is not that much. Get a few rods and try it out, the colors are wonderful!

Making Hot Fuschia Pink out of Moretti is a real challenge. Iíve had some success by layering several pinky/purple shades over each other.

So far the nicest Fuschia is a base of Evil Purple, a thin layer of Gold Ruby topped with a layer of Dark Lavender. Itís really yummy.

Check glass has a gorgeous transparent fuscia. It take time for the color to strike, but I just love the color! Sorry, no pics at this time (on the road).
