Description

A one ounce mix of sun and gear styles.  Each murrini contains both striking and reduction colors. All murrinis are 50mm in length.  After experimenting we found that 50 millimeters will allow you to cut the murrini to length cold or hot and still provide a variety of styles in each ounce.
