Default New Vetrofond Odd Survey

In May we released six new Vetrofond ODD colors. We airfreighted in six bundles of each of these new colors and have 1400 more pounds sitting at the Vetrofond Factory.

These colors are selling very quickly and we are trying to decide if we should airfreight in more, or wait til October for another seafreight.

So the questions will be answered by our customers. Have you tried them?
How do you like them? Can you wait til October to get more if it all sells out within the next week or two?

Here are the new colors:

I love them all, but have held off purchasing any of them for two reasons. First, knowing that you will be getting more of these colors in later, I'm trying to take advantage of your deeper discount sales. Second, again since I know you will be getting more in later, I don't feel as if I have to have them right now, where there are probably other lampworkers who do.

The Verde Muschio and Pale Pesto are both TDF!!! I have some of the Mauvelous but have not tried it yet, and have not tried the other three. I will definitely want more of both the Verde and the Pesto before the summer is out - I think they are "hoard-worthy" colors.

My favorites in order:

Purple Plum
Verde Muschio
Mauvelous
Biscotti
Pale Pesto
Cream

If you are running out I need to order more Purple Plum, I am in love with this color and then I could wait until October if I had to.

It's killing me that I don't have any of these yet, but I'm saving my money now for the Bash and for Glass Stock.

Why October? Why not in time for the Bash? I would really like to buy some of these colours when I'm visiting in August, so if that means that you need to airfreight some in, that's my vote.

Hey Mikey!!!

Well, to be honest...my straight up answer would be they don't really knock my socks off.
To view links or images in this forum your post count must be 1 or greater. You currently have 0 posts.
I have to agree with Pyro and Kandice that most of these colors look similar to what is already available, and I too prefer the solid, stable colors versus the swirly, speckled stuff. In addition, several of these colors look beyond washed out. Mauvelous? Hum...to me, at least, not so much... More like "Marbleous"

Mike,

Can we purchase a sample pack containing 1 rod each of these colors so that we can try them out first, and tell you which ones to order? I have to agree that the speckles aren't one of the better assets in the new glasses. Those are generally things we try to avoid by keeping our glass rods clean. On the other hand, they do add an interesting touch. I say go to Vetrofond and tell them to get back to work and bring Poppy back into their line.

I'll pass on the greens. The neutrals might be interesting to try. I am not a huge fan of the swirled colors, particularly the greens. ( I do like green, just not the odds I have).

I agree with those so far who have said that none of these colors are a must have. I wish the manufacturers would produce some actual new colors and stop tossing us all these streaky, washed-out mishmashes that look like they swept a bunch of old cullet into a batch of white. Maybe if we could leave it piled up at the factory, they'd get the idea that it's not what the market is looking for.

There seems to be a very remote possibility that Aleta might like to see Poppy available again...but that's just a guess on my part...

I do lubs Poppy which is why I hoard what I have. The other colors, love the Purple Plum but am in no hurry to get some.

Right you are Watson! BUT....not enough to pay "scalp" prices! So Mike, would you be kind enough to relay our wants to Vetrofond? Pretty please!

I might be one of the only ones, but I love the muted colours. I am really lusting for the Biscotti and the Pale Pesto. I want to try Mauvelous, too. The other ones are too bright and too much like glass I've already got.

Pale Pesto is the only one that tempted me enough to order some. And now I am so glad I did. It does remind me of ELO and that reminds me of Dirty Martini, which I just loaded up on. It's not easy being green.

Kevan, you sure made good use of the Pale Pesto! The speckles do add a touch of antiquity to your goddess beads.

I like Biscotti, but that's because I'm on a neutrals kick right now. Pale Pesto is pretty too.

If you want to talk about colors that you can't get anymore, I love Petrified Wood. I found one rod in my stash, made beads, loved it and then found out its not available any more. Ugh.

Pale pesto is definitely it! And I really like Cream... yeah, it has some specks in it, but doesn't matter much for what I'm using it for! Verde Muschio? Not so much as of yet.

Kevan could take baby poo color and make it look amazing. Personally, I was happy to see "new" colors, and then not so interested when I saw them. I am in the crowd that likes new hues instead of mixes.

I just made sample beads of all the colors and I have to say the only 2 I think I will be re-ordering are Pale Pesto and Purple Plum. I'm glad I only ordered 1/4 # of each to start, sample packs (1 or 2 of each rod) would be a lovely idea in the future.

791819 Biscotti Love this one. I need to play with it, but I got a shimmery gold reduction on a flower disc by accident the day before I left for B&B. I didn't know until I was pulling out the beads I had cleaned in the dark before leaving.
791820 Pale Pesto - Love this one too.
791821 Verde Muschio - Not so much but I like having it in my stash
791822 Cream - eh, not sure what to do with it
791823 Mauvelous - ick
791824 Purple Plum - reduces easily and reminds me of the light silver plum I already have

The Verde reacts nicely with raku, silver, and striking silver glasses. If I can ever get on speaking terms with my camera again, I'll try and post some pix. I definitely want to stock up on more of this as a base color.
