Default A very vibrant purple?

Not sure if this is the right place to put this--did I dream about a color called something like Galacia or Galatica Purple? I swear I saw this today and now when I search for it, can find it no where--a very vibrant sort of electrical purple, like EDP on crack

Perhaps you are thinking of Glicine Purple 039.

http://www.dichroicimagery.com/produ...oducts_id=7817

It's a dark transparent and must be used over white or a light pastel to look bright.

Yes, Elizabeth, that's it! And the search was inspired after reading your post trying to identify the wisteria I thought i was losing my mind! Yep, and appreciate those tips because I did not know that. Going to see if this can be added to an order I placed yesterday. Thanks!

Just fyi, some of my favorite 104 purple pastels are Messy Lapis, Reichenbach Lilac and RL-2202 Purple Rose, Effetre 999 Viola and Lauscha Blue Violet.

I'm all about purples. And pinks.

That's gorgeous.

I would love to see beads to see if it works up the same color as the lollypop on the web site.

They don't, unless you use it over white or a light pastel.

ha ha--I had a shopping cart all loaded up with all purples and pinks today, and then thought, wait, didn't you just place a big honking order for a lot of glass yesterday. Slow down and play with that first! I did order that extra purple to my order though--will get this next week in time for a three day weekend next week--yay. Wll go in and check out those others colors.

Elizabeth .... Regarding the Effetre 999. I seem to remember something about the color not looking "as purple" as the original paddle Art Glass House showed. Not sure I'm correct about this but thought some people were disappointed so I never bought any. Do you happen to have a pic of a bead using 999 and idmlove to see Lauscha Blue Violet if you have one too
