Colors are cool and can make a difference!

I ususally tie in a few strands of bright blue mixed with a few strands of hot pink mixed together (three of each) as cheeks on my flatwings. The mixture produces both a hot violet sheen and also the individual colors as well as reacting to the background yellows & chartreuse to give a range of different effects as the materials move. Fish seem to like it too!
