learning curve

I tried my first double color drop (picking up two different pieces of color bar and applying them as one) with my lava platter and loved the result. Of course, that meant I had to try it again. And with a different color.

The first attempt was not quite what I had in mind. While the black and blue looked gorgeous together, the black was a bit too dominate.

But, the swirls that appeared where the colors danced and flirted together was a nice surprise.
