Thanks! When I marketed the Ireland commemorative copper cups, I furnished grey close-up mats with most of them, because the balls were either dark blue, red or white.

On a black table if you use silver or chrome cups I would use red, yellow, blue in bold primary tones.

Copper is a bit tougher.

Describe your set up, base and cups.

Ok color mavens, some help here please.

If you were doing a routine with three different colored balls, what combination would look best. I am so not a color guy.

I found the blue ball vanished (not in the good way) on a green background. I've settled on red white and blue for the ball colors with a black tabletop. The blue is pretty light but I still think it may wash out in the black.

I'd seriously appreciate your input.

Pete, Bill???

Bill - I got Brown colored balls with my set of Ireland Copper cups.
They go with the cups great though.

Those should have been (probably) a maroon or dark red. Morrissey sent me equal numbers of red, white and blue balls.

There shouldn't be any problem with copper or brass. Each of these colors will contrast quite well with copper or brass. The problem is contrast between the balls and the table top. The specific problem is that unless you have an actual choice of the shade of blue, then you will have problems with a blue ball showing up against a black mat.

There are only a couple of sources of crocheted balls. One is Morrissey. They use a very dark blue. Sherwood uses a much lighter blue with metallic highlights.

If you can make them yourself, then the problem is solved.

Frank at the ambitious card can get monkey fist balls in different colors, though.

Hi Bill,
These are most definitely dark brown. Quite nice though.
