Many thanks to everyone who has taken part, Jo x


As many of you may know, I have been working on putting together a resource document for the forum about Effetre and Vetrofond glass listing their properties and reactions.

I have started to play with my odd lots too.

This one is petrified wood with effetre ivory and ivory stringer. The Ivory looks like it has bleed into the odd lot.






I am off to play with some more now. Grin

Oh Anna that sunset bead is lovely  Smiley

Some of them are a bit shocky aren't they - I haven't managed to make anything but frit (scattered all over the floor) out of rhubarb  Embarrassed

One more from me. This isn't for the competition Jo as the base is ask silver cinnamon but the swirls are red jasper and there is a clear reaction between the two. The bumps are psyche. The interesting thing with red jasper is that it looks different when you use it thinly on top of other colours. The colour is much more flat in this bead, for instance, than in the silvered lentils I posted earlier. So if I want the colour variations I use it for the base and add anything else afterwards.



I also just remembered that I had compatibility problems between wasabi and ask silver rattan. Its a real shame because it makes a great base for the land on a landscape or tree bead. But it happened twice (and they are definitely those little hairline cracks) so I abandoned the combination.

Hi!
I also have something to add:
This set was made with marbled avocado and Terra - except the bead with the scrollwork, this was Moretti dk. ivory with nyx.

These probably need to be in the newbie show and tell but they are Vetrofond so from left to right:
1. Lemongrass with efetre ivory and Beadysam yellow iris frit
2. Lemongrass with effetre yellow (not sure which one as not labelled - in starter pack)
3. Just lemon grass and Sam's frit again.

Going to try some more of my sample pack this weekend Grin Grin

Gorgoeus!

Another from me:


This is the Jasper, on its own in the lentils, then in the focal it is with Terra, effetre dark ivory and vetrofond ivory. At one end the jasper has turned darker from being lightly duster with terra powder.

This is frit on a banana cream base (I love that colour it has a real pinky tinge). I thought these colours looked a bit Clarice Cliffe?
