Our 3rd installment of Endless PETG adds some more HTPLA favorites to PETG. Galactic Empire Purple and Mermaid’s Tale Teal are both gorgeous and glorious. Both were custom designed for Rose “Maz” Moore and named by the community. How cool is that?
In designing Galactic Empire Purple (GEP), the challenge was to design a dark purple. Maz likes her purples dark! As intended, it's dark, but the abundance of pearl and glitter lighten things up to create a dynamic color that dances in the bright sun. If this is your first time experiencing GEP, you’re in for a royal treat! So park your star destroyer and enjoy!!!
Mermaid’s Tale Teal (MTT) is a sheer anomaly. The challenge was to match the ink of a pen Maz provided and like a gift from the gods, one attempt led to a match! There is something indescribably and indefinably special about MTT. The Filament Librarian literally had trouble quantifying this color. Equaled only by Cupid's Crush Metallic Pink, this Metallic Teal has spectacular sparkle that can only be fully appreciated in person!
Lucky you! You’re experiencing some of the best of Protopasta, and we hope you enjoy!!!
