Awesome!! The colors look great -- very vibrant and saturated. :-)

YAY! They look fantastic! I love the saturation, can't wait to wear the red pendant for spring.

The new colors look great well done. It s also great to hear that there are a few more colors in the works that you are still tweaking. I was very hopeful that the new colors would reflect those colors shown on the clock in the earlier blog - I waited up till 3am (Australia time) to see the new colors and was a little disappointed .

As for new colors check out 'Kitty Bitty - Ongoing Project: 99 rainbows'. manicured photos on flickr - there are some colors I would like to see.

Hey, is anyone else having trouble ordering the new colors?

I edited my listings to have the new colors, but for some reason only still see the old ones to purchase.

Same problem here, new colors are not visible after editing.

But I also noticed that purple is more expensive than red and black. Is this because you make purple with red and blue :-) ?

Me too, I've just tried minutes ago to upgrade my colour list but it's still showing the old colours. I think we have to wait.

However, nice colours! I'm waiting to test and see them.

One of the new colors is on the window sill now...

LOVE it...

Two questions, coming any other colors?
Or only red (might be okay) and purple (no need). If not it mean for me a
real step backward.

Still need a blue and any green, yellow would be nice.

And what is about the amazing squishy material (my last hope...).
#12 schnellingo on 2012-04-06 13:08 (Reply)
Working on a blue. :-) Green is in the pipeline as well but after the blue.

As for the squishy, we are getting closer and closer. Since this is a new material (for the entire industry) it's taking some time to tweak just right. When we launch we want to make sure we deliver quality squishiness to you guys.

Hi Nancy
i hope you will make us as next blue a deep outremer blue or klein blue
as brilliant for the blue than the new red

Is a metallic colour an option? Metallic blue would be nice!

The colours look nice but it is a shame that there are only two of them. Is there a technical reason other colours can't be used in 3D printing? Hopefully a full range of colours will be available eventually.
