It's A Sickness!

If you are a craft person/artist who buys supplies you know how it can be. You collect items and supplies because they are fabulous and beautiful. Then you have to figure out new ways to store the items so they are readily available. And in your brain you have a running inventory of what you have and if that fails you go back and look through your supplies periodically to refresh your memory. LOLOL! It is fun though and I love it. I have more supplies now than I probably will ever use in my lifetime.

But as the new Pantone color of the year came out I got excited and went online to order more glass supplies. Frit to be specific. I love to use frit on the lampwork beads I make: as added color, design or background. Frit is wonderful. Of course I had to buy purple to see if I can match the new Pantone color of the year. The tone seems to be more of a blue purple than a pink purple. Here is what I found at Val Cox Frit. What do you think?

Purple Rose

Violet Storm

And my last choice is Hyacinth Violet

Which do you think are closest in shade to the Pantone Ultraviolet?
