Title: mixing Bullseye coe 90 and Reichenbach/Gaffer coe 94/96
Post by: flame n fuse on October 24, 2016, 05:18:14 PM
Hi
Just wondering if anyone has experience of mixing these in beads. Do I have to stick to the 5% rule, or can I get away with more?

Interesting question. Don't know the answer but would like to learn from other peoples experience.

I have not found a hard and fast rule. Some pieces I have got away with more than 5% and others I have not. When using a lot of different sometimes the cracks are not overly visible. sorry thats not much help.

I would personally stick to 5% or less just incase.
