this treasury list.
I also made quite a few beads, a few of which I hope turned out. There are always so many that aren't what I thought they were going to be.
One of the things that kinda freaked me out glasswise was my last batch of CiM Stoneground. It is a wonderful color that I had been having pretty predictable results with. CiM is known for the consistency of their colors and when they have one that doesn't perform within parameters, they label it as a unique. Their standards must be pretty high, because some of their uniques are practically indistinguishable from their standard colors.
The last batch of Stoneground I got was not a unique but for me it's not at all like the last two I bought. It comes out lighter and strikes differently. I don't know if it is because of the silver content and the extreme variability it adds to glass (which is why a lot of us like it) but for whatever reason it strikes pink and purple like Canyon de Chelly instead of the golden brown I'm used to. Here are some pictures to illustrate
I'm getting used to the new batch and if I look at it as a different color, I like it just fine. I love striking glass and glass that does weird stuff. Now I just have to learn this one's tricks.
