It was back to the drawing board this weekend to try and improve on my faux lavender jade recipe. I had to tweak it a good bit, but am really happy with the results this time. The color is a gorgeous, soft, translucent lavender, with red tones instead of blue.
The jade pieces have been very popular, espcially the little green "Burmese" jade Koi fish, and I found a dragon stamp I liked very much.
Okay, of the 6 colors of natural jade, I've recreated green, black, lavender, and yellow. I'll be back at the drawing board again to try and improve the color of the Red and the White recipes, which is not as easy to do as it sounds. Stay tuned!
