Wow. Those are pretty cool. I wish I was clay creative.
For some reason they look like ecstasy pills...not that I've seen one. *cough cough*
Lol.

awesome idea and well executed too!
i always find it hard to judge exactly how dark colours will turn out after a bake. could be worth mixing up a batch and baking each colour (labelled of course) before making the cane itself then you could adjust colours accordingly Smiley

Colorblindness is fascinating and your earrings are amazing! :]

this is such a good idea!!

perhaps if you coated the earrings in some liquid clay the colours would be less vibrant and maybe work??

Thanks to everyone!

my colorblind husband couldn't see it. 

Yay!!! Not for your husband of course, but I'm glad they worked on somebody!

this is such a good idea!!

Interesting idea. I might try that just to see how they would look, although liquid clay and I aren't getting along that well this week.

I was using a lot of scraps for this project so the colors weren't an exact science  Smiley That would work really well if there was someone who is color blind nearby that I could bug.

I'm going to facebook this for a colorblind friend.  I'll let you know if they work for him. 
the idea is wonderful though.  How on earth did you ever come up with it?!

My son could read them.  He's red/green colorblind--mostly muted and pastel colors.  I can always tell when he's sorted the laundry.

My boyfriend couldn't see them. Must be varying degrees of colorblindness. I noticed the color saturation difference too. It seems like those tests are more faint and pastel, but it looks like they work to some degree.

This is what my friend said about  her husband

" yes he can see the 45s in the earrings. can only only see numbers the top and middle ones on the lefton the actual colour blind test chart Smiley she probably made it too dark therefore too much contrast!"

So that's his story, but it sounds like it works for some people, so I guess you'd just need to make a few diffferent shades and go from there!
