White Glass on Black

Hello Everyone:

I'm wondering if anyone can recommend what is the best soft white glass to use when working on black glass. Mine seems to be dull, gray and simply not giving me that nice bright white. Thanks and enjoy the weekend. Deb

I found the BE whites as you described, they look greish and muddy on black. My favorites are the italian glass whites, nice, bright and dense.

Cheers, seachange

If you are using 104coe I'd suggest CIM Peace, it's a nice opaque white )

Re: White Glass on Black

Corina did a white study a while back and found that the moretti white store bought stringer stayed the whitest. It seems the stringer is more of a dense white. Not sure if that was in one of her news letters or what... but I use stringer when I need something really white.
