Moon Face bead!

I just love making the Moon faces, it is a kind of therapy to create something so at peace and tranquil.
I love that the faces are the same but each background is different, this ladies face is made with Tongue pink, who would have thought that that is such a nice colour! I saw some one use it on LE forum and fell in love with it straight away!

The shape is really pleasant too, a very slender lentil shape 42mm but only 13 mm deep

I disagree! The faces are not the same. I was just thinking as I looked at this one: how does she (that's you, btw) achieve different feelings/moods with a few simple lines?
Now to the base color: congrats on using the Tongue Pink successfully. I haven't used it in years because I had dreadful results.
Naturally, you made it sing.

Hi Ellen,

Thank you, yes usually the mouth is a bit different and adds a uniqueness to each face :)
You know I can't remember tongue pink to be a nice color, but you really don't do anything special to it and it comes out so peachy! Perhaps they improved the glass??
