"Next are beads I made with Heffalump and Count von Count. I heard that they are color change glasses depending on the light and as you can see in these photographs it truly is. It looks purple in fluorescent lighting and very blue in natural lighting." Read more at Chris's blog.

"Count von Count is a wonderful colour and it's a great glass to work with. It melts nicely and it behaves a little better than Effetre Dark Lavender, which is probably its closest match in the 104 colour palette . . . I love to use Count von Count as an encaser. If you try putting it over CiM Heffalump and add a touch of CiM Lapis you'll be in some kind of purple paradise." Read more at Laura's blog.

"This color is almost completely identical to Effetre's 081 Dark Lavender. Most people probably won't be able to tell the difference. It works up just pretty much the same." Read more at Kandice's blog.
