Yes I agree about discontinuing colors that nobody really uses anymore. Kind of wish that Pearl Fuchsia was still available. How long ago did that get discontinued?

Balloon Chit Chat / Zoom Balloon Workshops
« Last post by Graham Lee on January 20, 2021, 03:48:29 PM »
I'm looking into running some Zoom online balloon workshops. I'm doing a couple of trial ones this week,
and if all goes OK I will then purchase the Zoom Pro and offer up to 90 minute sessions.
The plan is to have a minimum of 5 people and a maximum of 10 to keep it small and intimate.
Plus I think that would be a manageable number and a better learning experience,
the sessions would be £10 each and would include VAT.
You can claim this back on your yearly accounts.
If all goes to plan the first workshop will be on a Valentines Day design.
Any thoughts and comments most welcome 😁
Random picture below 😉

Here they are close up.
I was trying out a new neck technique, still playing with the idea at the moment.

Just trying some different variations to what looks best.

Balloon Chit Chat / Re: I wish Q-Tex still had the shades of color from the 70s/80s

Yes I remember burnt sienna but I never used those.
That is why things change and move on due to some colours being more popular than others.
I think colour choice is down to colour sales really.

Pretty much all the same but just the standard assorted are slightly different shades from 30 something years ago, especially the green yellow and blue. They used to have this pearlized Fuchsia (not pearl magenta which still exists) in the 90s. Yes I remember burnt sienna but I never used those.

So what shades do they not do now? Burnt Sienna is one I remember.

Like the dark green, dark blue, and yellow were slightly different. I think they were more see-thru. Somewhere between jewel tone and opaque. The only place that the “original” green exists now is the Pioneer Water Grenades. When did they go to the current shades? I think around 93ish is when they changed.

I also wish I could talk to more people about this.
