Re: Defining Black/Flow Black/Mulberry/Purple
Tim, I'm no expert on this subject but it seems to me that people often think mulberry is a purple color when in fact the patterns categorized as mulberry are NEVER purple. It is always a more or less gauzy transfer ranging from dark gray to black. As for the amount of "flow" in mulberry patterns, that varies a lot just as it does for flow blue. I don't know how the term "mulberry" got selected to describe these types of transfers (was it used by the factories themselves?) but it sure has caused a lot of confusion for a lot of people.
