Carolyn, thanks for the link to all of your favorite mixes. Mambobeads, great idea. I'll be trying it soon. One man's waste is another's treasure...
As the result of an overheated and overworked cased bead, i mixed trans dark amethyst with dark ivory. The resulting color on that bead was pretty, though the bead itself wasn't. I'd post a pic, but I don't think my scanner will do it any justice. I need to get a digital camera.
