Rich's Color Thread for COE 104 Glass



Moretti/Efretti is soft glass that is made on the Island of Moreno, Italy.

Here is the Moretti (COE 104) color rod list for you to use. I have included the rod number and the name of the rod color.

I have made beads and marbles using the colors and I hope they can assist you when you decide: 1) buying your colors and/or 2) making glass art.

I especially hope that my color thread helps the new glass artist just starting out as I sure wish there was something like this when I started out...lol.

Keep in mind I am showing the COLOR combination and didn't take time to make sure the ends were perfect nor did I become concerned with a perfect shape.

Then NOT in a pattern, place #448 dark brown AND #444 light brown dots randomly all over the

the add 456 rubiano - be careful, it's rubiano - work it OUT in the flame where it is a bit cooler to TRY and not burn it!








Marbles #146: Here I am trying to get a good pink.

So, this marble has 4 attempts (A,B,C,D) inside the implosion and I tried a 5th (E) on the bottom of the marble.

Do the glass and pull into a stringer, then decorate your work: make sure you mix fully when mixing before pulling into your stringer.
