There were quite a few different shades in bright pinks, deep purples and a couple of blues. Must have been the constitution of the papers I used. The jug on the right was what I used whilst hot. On the left, half the cold original, unused, quite a difference in colour. I used the jug on the left to do the lace and a couple of small pieces of cheesecloth:

  2. My goodness those colours are lovely. I do love the periwinkle blue colour.

    God bless.

    1. Amazing aren't they, so many different hues.
