more Luster blending

So I have some pieces that I keep using to add colors or techniques too, experimental pieces. This weeks color blending experiments. Red carmine. Another interesting tidbit, the same color can fire differently depending on SOOooooo many things. so far this red carmine has run the gamut from a dark magenta like pink, to a rubyish red color, in a recent test I darkend the tone with a brown luster, just a Bit. and got a kindof burgundy maroon. if you look closely , you can see the darker tones.

I also overlayed it on some of the other colors, the iris yellow and green of the leaves. In the kiln now is another mixed piece. I will post it when it is cooled.
I would love to hear you thoughts, Or if you have favorite color combos in your luster journal. cscarminetest1
