Default Help! Color ID.. What color did I use?

Help! Color ID.. What color did I use?

I made this piece a few years ago. I thought it was Loki lipstick.
It is not.
Then I tried my favorites:

Light blue A/P
Silver Tears
Amber Purple
Double amber purple

I just can't seem to figure out what color I used. Does anyone recognize this color?

Looks like silver fume implosion with trapped air bubbles to me.

The consistency of the bubble placement reminds me of a florists frog with such even spacing.

But I haven't ever fumed nor have I worked any boro colors so I could well be talking through my hat here.

I don't ever fume so it can't be that. I have lung issues so I stay away from fuming even though I do have a great ventilation system. I know working with the silver glass in boro has silver anyway but I pick my battles.

As for the dots, I use a tool from Weaver Industries that is similar to a frog.

Did you use the same color backing on your tests? That can make a big difference.
I want to say triple passion, but I don't think it is.

Yep! I like Turbo cobalt fine frit for the backing. I tried triple passion. I tried two different batches and did not strike the colors at first. Then ran the kiln again and did a strike. Both results were different but not the same colors. They went purple not blues. Thanks!

Mai-Tai? Queen Bee?
Those are the 2 colors that came to mind.
I played with boro for a short time, and I remember those 2 have a look like that.
But I am just throwing that out there.
It's pretty what ever it is!.
