I went through my sample book and amazingly enough! found I did not have the ideal colors for this. What a surprise! (I'm being sarcastic here, since I often end up not having the colors I most want despite my large and ever-growing collection of colors). In particular, I'm missing a strong clear orange and a red that tends to the orange rather than the purple. Sigh. I ended up choosing 4 colors: a golden and an orangey yellow, a very light clear orange of which I only have a bit, and the Aoko 105A, which is a tad more orangey than the 105B- it's a good match for many garnets, in fact. I think they'll do.
This whole process was made less pleasant since the air conditioning in the studio, on which I was counting to compensate for the kiln, is not working. Again. This happened last year, too, when the guys who installed it replaced a potentially-leaky cap and said if it failed again, there was another leak and they'd look for it then. I guess now's the time. We are not looking forward to either hassling with those idiots again, nor of paying someone potentially more competent to fix their poor work, however. Sigh. I hate this sort of thing.
