Lauscha Brownie test179 viewsAfter annealing.

Looks like I made a mistake and it was in fact the Caramello that turned pink... I only used it in two beads - in the centre up the back - and yes, they are definitely pinker than the others...

Who feel stupid now???

That'd be me... DOH! hehe

Lauscha Brownie test155 viewsWell, as you can see, this colour does change depending on the heat. These are just off the mandrel and they are set out as to how they were made on the mandrel. Made in sets of 3 for the spacers and sets of two for the others. It seems that giving the beads just enough radiant heat to keep them from cracking, is what can cause them to go lighter in colour...

The two stripey ones are Nuclear Brownie and Ivory.

The two top left beads are both made with Nuclear Brownie and Caramello, in that order. See which colour turns pink in the kiln... Noooo, it's NOT the Nuclear Brownie is it... *rolls eyes* What a wally... Seriously... [add more eye rolling here]...
