Need a judgement call

Postby poorboy » Mon Aug 23, 2010 1:27 pm

Was final washing some pieces when I noticed this oddity. It looks clear except for a blue or aqua hue around the edges. So what color does one classify it as? Is it two tone or clear or clear/aqua two tone or what.

Without checking my guide for colors in this embossing, I would say either ice blue/aqua or blue/aqua tint. Definately not a 2-tone. The book you're waiting for will explain the difference between ice and tint, but basically, tint is between clear and ice, ice is between tint and light (in this case) aqua

Thanks for your reply. I guess I should quit using the online price guide as it seems to be confuseing as to colors for certain CD #'s and embossings. Hopefully my book will be here in a couple more days.
