Thought I was being clever by using my Google Photo account.

Will have to try again.  Sorry.

But tbh, I'm having the devil's own job finding a BRIGHT purple from which I can make the spirals.
Currently using either Reichenbach Opal Lilac OR Effetre 591271 Light Silver Plum.
Would either Effetre 591059 Mosaic BLUE or Reichenbach's Purple Rose be better / brighter?
The green is 591216 Opaque Grass Green and seems to be working OK when applied adequately when making the twisties.

Any advice appreciated.  Thanks,

Rob


Depends on what sort of purple you are looking for, but CIM Lapis is a nice opaque purple.

CIM Lapis is a nice opaque purple.

Can't see CiM Lapis as available from our favourite supplier.
But CiM Blue Arrow Frog appears barely blue.

This is what I'm trying to match (the handlebar tape)

Cadbury chocolate purple, I think there have been discussion on this forum before about this colour. If you find the right class, I'd like to know!

Lovely beads Rob
Purple mixes that may work are -
Effetre dark transparent violet over white
Thin dark transparent violet over silver but might be patchy
Reichenbach pink lady transparent over effetre periwinkle but make sure to strike the transparent glass to bring out the full pink effect. You could also use Rubino, I seem to burn it every time so stick with pink lady

Edited - Reichenbach make pink lady, not CIM!
