1 is plain, 2 over white, 3 over ivory, 4 with silver foil, melted in and 5 is the same, encased. There is an attractive greenness to it that, naturally, doesn't show up well in this picture. 6 is with intense black dots, 7 is with copper green and 8 is with triton, melted in, partially reduced, and encased. I like the only barely reduced part and wish I could have got more definition in the lines of triton. 9 is with triton, just reduced and 10 is with ivory stringer, melting all over the place as I tried to apply it. I have to practice this some more. It might be a good cow bead. Actually, that is what this color is--the perfect Brown Swiss color. Chocolate milk, anyone?
Right now I'm on a drama kick and it's hard to get excited over a neutral. I'll look at these pictures again when I'm in a different mood.
