The colour of the month challenge is jointly sponsored by Off Mandrel (thank you Sean and Gillian!) and Frit Happens!

Each month the lucky winner, chosen by a random number selector, will receive a 20 gift voucher to spend on-line with Off Mandrel. The draw will take place at the start of **October** Last entries before midnight of the last day of September so make sure you get your entries in to be in with a chance to win the goodies!

A reminder that the entries should be new work.

So, the colours for the month for September 2013 Nile Green (this will be Effetre 591214, we had '212' a few years ago so if there is any uncertainty we want the glass with the part number 214  Wink ). Come on let's see your creations!

Good luck!

Um Krysia, 591214 on Tuffnells site is listed as Opaque Pea Green, which is very different from Nile green, which is an opalino??

Hiya

Right go for the Glass numbered as 591214 which according to tuffnells is Pea.

... and when I get my glass out of storage I shall relabel my stash  Wink  Roll Eyes ...

The good news is that Pea does interesting things with rubino

  Undecided On the Effetre wiki here http://www.frit-happens.co.uk/wiki/Effetre there seems to be two Nile greens, the 214 and also the opalino which is 216.
Maybe the 214 has been renamed to avoid confusion!

I think I may have a rod of 214, off to have a look.... Smiley

It's Nile Green both as an opaque and as an opalino!
212 is lime green or pea green!

In line with last month, should this month's challenge be "make something with any glass you've got that's vaguely garden pea coloured??"  Grin Grin Grin

I had some Nile Green lying around, so I'd figured I'd try making something and enter this challenge/contest as well Grin
Soo... can I enter? *have never done this before*

It's not brilliant, but I'm getting better each session. Also, it was a nice way of practicing dots Smiley (I have very poor dot-controle due to unstable hands, unfortunately)



All beads are just nile green and opaque brown. I think brown and green combine well Smiley In the front you see a pair of earrings that I made with implosionbeads in these colours. In the back you can vaguely see some basic beads with a lot of dots. I'm sorry - I'm not very good at phtographing beads yet, haha.

It is fun to have this challenge to direct my attention to. It is a nice oppertunity to try out colours and techniques that I would not otherwise have tried. Thank you for that Smiley

Jeske, I think you are very hard on yourself. I  think you are producing remarkable work for someone who describes themsleves as relatively new to beadmaking.

awwh thanks. I actually am really proud of these results. It's just that I get very self-conscious seeing all of the perfect beads made by you all ^^ (I'm always very impressed by the posts in the gallary)

My first ever entry to the colour challenge!

Clear / silver black / pea green.

Hope these are OK... my first big "matching" set of beads, and my first big heart focal!



NB: They still need to go through the kiln annealing cycle, hence the large amount of bead release still visible... can't wait to wear them!
