Re: Moretti rod color names + rod numbers + beads to see

This thread has been really helpful. I've wasted so much glass making rather ugly beads because the combinations just don't work. My current dilema is pink! I'm looking for a really strong pink that I can put over black and will show. Any suggestions? I'd even consider a white base, then adding pink, but many of the moretti pinks are so light (or alabaster, which I kill every time I use it!). I'd really appreciate suggestions!

I tried several things on the colors in the marbles to get pinks

Good luck!

Check out Devardi glass for some really strong pinks. They react differently than Effetre pinks, too. They are stiffer, and in my experience, the transparent dark rose does not react to ivory and turn into a dark brown mud.
