"First up, on the left, a dark opaque purple called Eggplant. It looks slightly translucent in the rod, but works up to be functionally opaque, although it would probably be worth it to try it as a thin layer over clear. The new purples, Plum, Grape Ape and Eggplant form a harmonious colour range, really being varying shades of the same purple. Eggplant is the darkest." Read more at DragonJools blog.

"I was thrilled to see the March 2011 issue of Bead Trends is now out to the stores. I was honored to be featured in this issue with my design named 'Our Love'. The design is a combination of rich purples including CiM's Eggplant [a great base for silver frit], Effetre Purple Glycine and lots of Double Helix silver glass decorations."

“Eggplant etches normally. This bead was put in etching solution for 12 minutes."

“I didn’t even realize this was an opalino! It works up like a regular transparent glass and I didn’t have any problems at all using it.”
