Genny, I really like the GQ frit and orange/yellow combos you came up with! Pretty! And, just to mention that we can use the test colors with any Momka glass for our experiments.
Kay, great pics!!! Ooooh! Glittery!!

Thanks Kay and Anita -

Anita - I love the idea of the orange and yellow with gypsy queen frit but think it needs a lot more frit to make the same statement you can get with the green dragon and brown. Maybe the crayon colors absorb some of the frit's colors - but I love it so will try to do again this weekend or would love to see some other experiments. I love the gypsy queen rod but agree that the frit is really amazing!

Heya - can any of you testers scan the form we are supposed to fill out and email it to me? I can't find my forms for the life of me!

Thanks!

Oh, I'll also need the address to send it to. We had some work done on the
house (plumbing exploded) and everything got moved all over the place.

Finally had a chance to test the new colors. My initial reaction was how smooth and silky the colors melt. I'm on a Cheetah with OG-20 generator.
Gypsy queen is quite colorful and makes nice murrini and twistie stringers.
Great color for quickie colorful spacers. I struck mine in the flame to pull up
those pretty ethereal colors. Brown glitter is pretty in a subtle earthy way. Green dragon is also a very subtle and natural color has a dragon scale shimmer. Here are a couple of pieces with Brown glitter and Green dragon. Vessel is base of Almond Nugget. Tube hollow is Amethyst Ice twistie with Green dragon and Silver Beach. Just imagine more sparkle because I couldn't capture it well with my set up and it's raining. No outdoor shots today. Thanks for looking. Lori

I have to admit, I wasn't that thrilled with these colors, but everything I have made with them has sold! The brown glitter and gypsy queen seem to be the favorite over the green dragon though.

Did Gypsy Queen become "cirque" in the Momka multi series?
