Talking Question for Squid regarding hot pink

Thanks so much.

Hey Squid, I've tried twice to post a message to you and somehow I flubbed it up. I think I deleted it by mistake. Anyway is that orange clockwork orange or trans. orange 072 or does it make a difference. And, do I put the clio over the orange and strike or reduce it and then what. It turns pink? Which is it strike or reduce? I don't know the process. I am getting ready to order the orange so....I don't know which one to get.

From what I have read, clockwork is the CIM transparent orange. I think I have seen people use both that and the effetre striking orange. I think I actually ordered some, but haven't used it yet. I can send you a short of each if I do have it, and if you can wait a few days so you can experiment. Let me know, & I'll go verify I do have it if you want to wait & experiment a little.

clockwork is the opaque and there is another clear orange. I looked it up on Frantz and saw the two colors. I just didn't know which one to use. By the way, did you make the sister shubert ham and swiss rolls yet? I can just order some of each. It isn't much and I hate for you to go to all of that trouble. Thanks so much.

According to the CIM site, clockwork is a striking orange, that can range from transparent to opaque. http://www.creationismessy.com/color.aspx?id=20
I have seen posts with both clockwork and Effetre striking orange with the cleo. If you look through the 2nd thread (on clio) I posted, you'll see samples of each combo.
So you may just have to give them a try to see which one comes closer to your vision?

No, I haven't made the rolls yet unfortunately.

I looked through your posts and got lots of tips. As soon as it warms up here in Charlotte I'll try some things out. It got freezing here today after 70 yesterday. I'm ready for spring. I will check out the CIM colors too.

Thanks so much Eileen. You guys out there in LE land are great to answer questions. If you need a special recipe, I'm your gal.

I prefer the look of transparent red (the light one) under the Clio. It gives you reddish blue tones. Start out with a very small red base and keep rolling until you get the length you want and make sure you encase the red well before you add the clio.

You mean you encase (in clear) first BEFORE you add Clio?

OMG this silver glass thing is gonna be so hard.

I discovered, before learning that one needs a layer of clear in between Clockwork and Clio (thank you Eileen!), that I sometimes got a blue tint where the Clio lay over the Clockwork (and sometimes it just turned the Clockwork brown; yuck).

Cruddy pic, but you can see what I mean:

Obviously not pink; I suspect the clear does something to cause the pink colors to reflect thru the Clio instead of blue, so def use it!
