Question How to Make Vivid Purple Glass Beads?

Question, so I do understand how to accomplish vivid pink. I am still learning this craft and it does seem to take a while to master.

Are there other vivid colors that can be accomplished? Is there a vivid purple that is bright like this pink? I can see elements of vivid purple in this bead.

Try dark amethyst over periwinkle. It's cheap, easy, reliable and looks awesome. Add some rubino if you're feeling bold.
Yes, I am FosterFire Bead Release.

The picture you posted appears to be made with Double Helix Clio. You use a base of orange ((CIM Clockeork orange works well. Encase with a thin layer of clear. Then add a thin layer of Clio. Reduce the Clio and encase in clear. If done properly you will get beautiful pinks.
