This is a Cornflower base on the left and Ming base on the right, with Ming dots on the left and Cornflower dots on the right. Notice the Cornflower has done some wonderful things in terms of separating and showing patterns.
On top of Ivory, Ming spreads in a crazy, blotchy, I-think-I'm-a-transparent sort of way. The Ivory underneath it clots like cream. On top of Ming, the Ivory lines and dots have good cohesion, but you can see some marbling in them and the blue of the Ming breaching their boundaries.
The reaction between Ming and White is very similar to what happens with Ivory, but because White is a more translucent colour than Ivory, the lines and dots of it over Ming are not as crisp, and the odd curdling of the White on the right side of the bead has even less real definition to it.
Over Copper Green, Ming thins out to almost nothing, looks completely transparent and really befuddles the surface of the Copper Green. It develops light turquoise halos around it and odd, grainy veins of Ming concentrate in the surface of the dots and lines of the stringerwork that remind me of cracks in cement walls.
CiM 821 Ecru - only a little boundary reaction with the turquoise (almost greenish), but the turquoise did do a lovely job of pooling or separating. Nice, eh. I think putting those dots closer next time and letting them touch might look cool.
The bead on the left is a self-solid, the one on the right, is Black Currant, white dots, and black current again. Notice how the dots have crawled and are unevenly coloured - giving them an almost inside out look.
CiM 428: It ain't easy being. It also reminded me of Copper Green, so this bead is It Ain't Easy Being on the left, and Copper Green on the right. There are ivory dots at the ends, and EDP dots in between. You can see that the Copper Green is much more strongly reactive, especially with the EDP. But still - similar sort of reaction.
