I wish I shared your guys opinions on these. The more I look at them the less I’m digging the colors. That blue is that blue. As I’ve stated it’s very difficult( at least in my experience) to alter it whatsoever. I used two teaspoons of pearl powder in 8 oz and barley got the effect. I call it black hole blue cause it just swallows whatever you put in it, but stays the same. Even those tails, I was in a hurry to test my presto/stirrer/pid setup. So I didn’t wait for my pearl powder to arrive and went ahead with some pearl gold I had. So they came out more ‘cream’ colored than anything. The good news is my setup worked perfectly, so I was happy. Needless to say I’ll be spending time refining this combo, it’s my curse, when I have an idea how I want something to come out I can’t settle for ‘close’. I think 2XL nailed it when he started this convo a while back. I’m sure to be using his recipe as my starting point.
