Lori,

This is great! I've been trying to make some beads to match a strand of stones I have that have a greenish gray base bead with specks of marine blue and mustard. I don't know what the stone is called but it's really cool looking. I had to mix the mustard color because the Moretti mustard changed. I don't know if any of you noticed. It used to be a true mustard and is now a brighter yellow. Loren Stump taught us some more intricate color mixing techniques and we found that you can get the right mustard color (like the old Moretti mustard) with a rod of the new mustard and some grass green. You would have thought that it would be black or brown eh?
