My preconception when selecting rods was that my favourite white chocolate colour would be D followed by C then F. It turned out that F was my hands down favourite but I had this niggling feeling that although it looked pretty it was nowhere near the most realistic shade of the 6.
Craft Pimp Forum and on my Facebook Page this morning and asked the girls and boys over there for feedback on most yummy looking/most like white chocolate. I collated the results after 12 hours of canvasing for opinions and scored the feedback.
If someone chose a single clear favourite then I awarded that bead 3 points. If more than one bead was selected then I awarded points on a sliding scale as follows -
Prefers X then Y, X gets 2 points, Y gets 1 point.
Likes X and Y (and Z...), 1 points each.
Thinks X or Y (or Z) is good then 1 points each.
- A Reichenbach 104 Porcelain
- B Vetrofond Dark Ivory 262
- C Effetre Dark Ivory 276
- D CiM Linen
- E Vetrofond Honey Crunch 540
- F Vetrofond Belgian Lace/Yellow Ice 947
What this little experiment tells me is that I have 3 excellent options to choose from when I want to make yummy looking white choc beads - Vetrofond Belgian Lace for plain and textured chocs, CiM Linen which is much darker in tone than Belgian Lace holds up well to being "Iced" and Effetre Dark Ivory as a good all rounder option.
Thank you to everyone who played along and shared their opinions today.
