Need help with color please
Can anyone tell me the best 96 or 104 transparent purple to match an amethyst stone?

Val Cox 2018-07-12 12:05pm

this 96coe Red Amethyst R12

or this 96coe Amethyst R13

both are gorgeous colors I have enjoyed working with. Val

Thanks Val Cox. Do they go dark if I’m making a 14mm round?

Have you already tried Effetre light or dark violet? 591041 and 591039 I think.

Yes, just not true amethyst. Hoping I have the 96 Val suggested.

I find all of the Reichenbach transparents to look too dark alone as a small bead. Maybe over clear?

Yes they are very saturated in color and may appear dark. Layer over clear or white to get the correct shade--beautiful hues!

In 104 range you can play with CIM Saphire on top of CIM Cranberry.

This bead is not perfect at all, but I like how sapphire plays with cranberry and shifts the color to the purple side.

got any of the lauscha? Val's suggestion is good if you got it

If anyone has the old Vetro dark transparent purple, it was perfect assuming you mean a good quality amethyst.
