Following on from a different thread, I've been layering Kalyso over other colours to see what happens. These beads were made from a large spacer of white, with colour X over it, encased in clear, encased in kalypso, heated snot hot and lightly reduced, encased in crystal clear, then pressed, just with mashers to spread the colour out a bit.

Starting from the knot in the string, about 3 o'clock and going clockwise, colour X is teal, striking yellow, striking orange, rubino and striking red. So although the kalypso goes pink the base colour still comes through, the red and orange base colours show the best bright pinks.

This carried on from the goddesses I did last week.....
Just kalypso over white

And over coral though she looks more pink in person.

The difference in the colours is merely the base colour showing through as there's a layer of clear between the base colour and kalypso in all the beads, so shouldn't be any reactions between colours.

I love the pinks, but the teal is also rather gorgeous!

I like the rubino one, that's a lovely effect.

I have a rod of that, but not got up the courage to use it, shall have to have a play next time I get torch time. Maybe EDP as well.
