I recently received some murrini from Mallory at rosebud101. One of the bags contained "reactive" glass murrini. I wasn't sure what that was and I told Mallory I would do some research. She urged me not to do research, and to just play with it and see what happens. So what did I do? I waited. I thought this reactive glass would require a big plan, and I didn't want to mess it up. The murrini was white and what looked like gray on the outside. I couldn't figure it out.
I finally took a chance and made a black pup. Then I added some of that reactive murrini and voila! The part I thought was gray was silvered ivory! Little bits of silver shone on the bead and the silvered ivory crackled on the doggie's coat. I loved it!
