I know that Sandstone has been a big seller to some but I'm also happy to see the dark fossil back! Will these be regularly stocked going forward...and how are the stock levels now?

Thanks

Duane

Hi

We have hundreds of pounds of these colors so they will not sell out right away.

Effetre does not make these colors very often. The Dark Fossil is actually from a past run that was in the factory and they offered this to us and of course, we said YES!!! We will take it all!!

Sandstone-we have asking them for a few years to remake and they finally did. We had to buy the entire production of this color but did so gladly as we know our customers miss this sold out unusual Ivory.

Happy Thursday!

We at Frantz call this "Little Friday"

Your friends at Frantz Art Glass

Also, thank you for keeping the color paddles up to date, I really appreciate that I can have a better guess at what a current batch is. It is a lot more work for you but very valuable information for me.

We try our best! Each time we get a shipment of one of those colors that can vary from production to production we will make beads, take photos and post.

Thanks

Just got my Sandstone today and it is gorgeous! Can't tell a difference from the original in color, reactions- great curdling, etc.

i'd like to add my two cents in about the new sandstone.

the application i used sandstone for, in the first batch, was for it to be a grayish ivory base that held very thin CIM tuxedo lines crisp and sharp. the new batch, while it definitely has the nice gray ivory look to it, to me, it seems much more reactive than the previous batch.

in my studio, i keep all of my ivories separate..so, yeah..i have probably 20 different ivories. i usually have some endearing pet name for them all..much like the odd lot names given to glass like "river rock" or "curdled" ivories.

this sandstone is a good batch, but in my studio it will be endearingly named "curdled sandstone". the rods are considerably rougher than the original run. it is absolutely more reactive this time.

Thanks Ali, for this great feedback. We appreciate that you took the time to share your results with the LE community.

This color,
To view links or images in this forum your post count must be 1 or greater. You currently have 0 posts.
, is selling very fast, we have sold about 25% of the entire production so far. Folks have been waiting for Effetre to remake this color and are now taking advantage of stocking up on a once-sold-out, but now remade color.

Now, if they would only remake 081 (Lavender, dark, transparent) we would be deliriously happy! We always put this on our orders to Effetre and maybe one day our dreams will come true!

Have a wonderful week LE'ers!
