Frantz Art Glass recently received another shipment of “Odd” neutral colors from Vetrofond and they are:
These “Odd” neutral colors are a fabulous base color for working with many of those expensive silvered glass colors made by Double Helix, Trautman Art Glass and Precision 104.
About two years ago, Effetre Dark Ivory – 591276 use to be the base color of choice when working with the fancy silvered glass colors. When I used Effetre Dark Ivory – 591276 with the silvered glass colors I would get heavy fuming with lots of black veining in it. This is great if that is all you want out of the color combination’s, but for something more subtle, I find this new group of “Odd” neutrals to be a wonderful base glass. The super cool thing that this group of Vetrofond neutral colors does is produce soft, subtle sepia colored fuming over the surface of the bead when a highly reactive silvered glass color is applied instead of the black veined fuming that develops on Effetre Dark Ivory.
There was another Vetrofond “Odd” color called Yellow Ice – 791947 that has been around for several years and gained an avid following as a base for working with the fancy silvered glass colors, but that supply has run out and can only be gotten from the Artist Points Store at Frantz Art Glass and Supply now and I think that this group of “Odd” neutrals from Vetrofond make a good alternative to this now unavailable glass color.
I have been looking through the bead forums and have really liked the color reactions I have seen other beadmakers are getting from these new Vetrofond “Odd” neutrals. I see great fuchsia and pinks developing from using glass colors like “Fire Lotus” by TAG 104 over Cream – 791822.
