wow! thanks for that link...
ive never thought of gathering it since mostly i just stripe directly onto the clear and it works great. lately their batches have been really sucking. im not sure what changed but a year ago almost all of their stuff was fine. This is the absolute worst ive seen so far:
this is tangerine. the good stuff from my old stash is on the right. the new stuff i just got a couple weeks ago is total trash. notice how dark and shiny the good stuff stays even after being heated directly in the flame and striping onto clear
the new stuff (TOP) is dull, colorless and not smooth or shiny at all:
i havent had time to contact the company yet. hopefully i can be re-imbursed. several of their colors ive gotten lately have been like this. though not nearly as bad as this tangerine
