Hi Michaela,

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. biggrin.gif

Oh my goodness. huh.gif

Looks like maybe the red sled color ran when they poured the enamel. huh.gif

It is kind of pretty though. wink.gif

Did know EL had trouble with them turning yellow but have not seen this.

Thanks for bringing it to our attention. biggrin.gif

Tonight I was moving some of my solids and I placed the igloo on a white surface and the enamel is pink. ohmy.gif ohmy.gif ohmy.gif

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.

Michaela,

Wow!

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

Hey what had happend here!
What's the reason for this fancy colour blink.gif . 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 cool.gif no one needs melted perfume right ?

Someone else here with other colours ? We are open for exsperiments sad.gif blink.gif

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.
