"Here we have Crocus, au-naturel. Reduced, unreduced, it's all the same. I also didn't find that I got much colour change or opacification from Crocus when I repeatedly heated it, which was nice since it happens a lot with other semi-opaques." Read more at Melanie's blog.

Crocus & Double Helix Clio.

"This is Aurae stringer on a lentil made with Crocus. Remember, Crocus does some interesting things, depending on the light. . . This third photo is under a mixture [of types of lighting], in photo tent. Green. I'm thinking that there was some fuming going on from reducing the Aurae, and it has made the Crocus colour shift even more dramatic." Read more at DragonJools blog.

"The top mandrel is CiM Crocus - a truly lovely reddish lavender purple. The bottom mandrel is the same color - with a trail of Double Helix Triton, and reduced. The effect of the Triton reducing on the Crocus is quite dramatic! The Crocus now looks much more pinky." Read more at DragonJools blog.

"Incidentally, these are two separate blue frits over Crocus. I was going for less coverage but they spread out a lot! You can see the translucency of the base gives them a glow, though." Read more at Heather's blog.

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

"A nice strong colour too - didn't wash out the way Heffalump did. But, pay attention when photographing it. You might have to follow the light around the house to get good pictures." Read more at DragonJools blog.
