CiM Leaky Pen on Moretti 276 Pastel Dark Ivory… very reactive, a bit too muddy in my opinion


Moretti 204 Pastel White base, with (from bottom to top) Moretti 219 Pastel Copper Green, Moretti 213 Pastel Grasshopper Green, and Moretti 026 Transparent Blue Green. Spacers are Moretti 026 Transparent Blue Green. There is CiM Leaky Pen frit on the barrel bead.


Clear base with (from bottom to top) CiM Leaky Pen, Moretti 026 Transparent Blue Green, CiM Leaky Pen. The spacers are clear with CiM Leaky Pen over top. The leaky pen is a really dark, very saturated transparent glass, I had heard it works well over top of something else but is too dark on its own.


This focal has a Moretti 204 Pastel White base, with (from left to right) Moretti 026 Transparent Blue Green, Moretti 213 Pastel Grasshopper Green, and Moretti 219 Pastel Copper Green with CiM Leaky Pen frit overtop (slightly reduced). The spacers are Moretti 219 Pastel Copper Green, again with very slight reduction (which seemed to make it a bit more metallic). Apparantly copper green and leaky pen both reduce to give some reddish tones, so I’m not sure which one of them is giving the reddish tones on the swirly part.
