Pink Frosted Igloo
Posted 17 January 2004 - 02:24 PM
I purchased an frosted igloo and it has arrived now. But it looks a little strange to me . The snow has a light pink. Does someone of you have the same problem ?
The stones and the other details are looking nomal to me .

Some of the igloo's the snow turned yellow and they were recalled but I haven't heard of pink snow.

Yes, it does look a lttle pink but it is hard to judge color from the photos.
That seller sometimes sells solids that have been sent back with a defect.
If you like the pink solid I think it would be nicer than the yellow ones that were sent back. Yellow snow is not a good thing.

Ann I wouldn't have thought you'd get snow of any colour where you are!

Oh my goodness.
Looks like maybe the red sled color ran when they poured the enamel.
It is kind of pretty though.
Did know EL had trouble with them turning yellow but have not seen this.
Thanks for bringing it to our attention.

Tonight I was moving some of my solids and I placed the igloo on a white surface and the enamel is pink.
I know it was white when I got it so it must be turning pink.
Has anyone else checked their igloo lately??? Put it on something white.

You are right! Pink snow! It must be associated with the red sled like Ann said.

What's the reason for this fancy colour . Maybe the glue ? How can it change the colour - it is plastic. I have heart about when plastic gets into extreme sunlight it can get harder and porous but it cannot change the colour. And who
will display solids in extreme sunlight no one needs melted perfume right ?
Someone else here with other colours ? We are open for exsperiments

Mine has been in a cabinet with not much light and that's why I didn't notice it.
Ken thinks maybe the enamel is reacting to the red sled somehow.
If the sled was glued on first ,then the enamel poured ,then the red from the sled could be leaching up from underneath.
The ones that turned yellow I always thought that it was from to much light but this is strange.
