Same color. Two different looks.
Both of these sets of beads were made using the exact same ivory color mix from Lynda Moseley's Faux Ivory tutorial. The only difference being the colors that surround them.
In the top photo, copper pearl ex was used as well as a coppery mixture I created using alizarin red and a bit of gold. Varying the amounts of gold gives a wonderful variety of copper colors to choose from.
In the lower set, I used carbon black pearl ex. Warning: a little carbon black goes a very long way. I am still learning how to control it.
The top beads look almost like porcelain. They remind me of lamp finials.
Anyway, more to come.
