Lampwork Colour Guide -> Frit Blends -> Val Cox Purple Salmon

This frit, by Val Cox, is a very pretty mix of opaque purples and salmon pink.

Purple Salmon 204 Black Currant
Weird reaction here. Base is Moretti 204 Pastel White, with CiM Black Currant, and Val Cox Purple Salmon frit. I had some really weird colour separations so these are going to go in the orphan pile 🙂 I am pretty sure it was the Black Currant creating the weird reaction, because the frit on just plain white gave me no problems.

Purple Salmon 046
Moretti 046 Transparent Pale Purple with Val Cox Purple Salmon frit. I had some problems with devitrification so I decided to etch these beads – see below.

Set above, etched. I wasn’t really crazy about these beads etched either to be honest, they might end up in the orphan bin too!
