Special Combos

Well, I know there are a lot of you who are interested in knowing more about the Special stuff.

Tom Baker was the originator of the first line of Specials way back in the day. He didn't know what he had at first, and then when he got his hands on a Mojave (around 2006*, which back then was EXPENSIVE!), he produced the first Crystal and paradox Crystal.

(*I'm not 100% sure about the year, so....yeah.)

There are a few other lines of Special out there, including the BHB line, the TCR line and the Noco line of Specials.

They are all similar, although the Super form from Noco seems to be darker and with richer colors than that of the Baker line.

What has been done with these Specials?

They have been combined with (that I am aware of):

Super Pastels
Pastel Special

And to make Crystals:

Pastel Mojaves
Pastel Sulfurs
Sulfur Mojaves
Spider Mojaves

Now again, I'm sure I'm probably missing something, but those are the most prevalent combinations that I know have happened.

Things happen behind the scenes that aren't quickly shared with the public, so this is not an exhaustive list.

I don't have photos of a lot of these combinations as I am not the one who created them. I'm sure you can find them if you do some Google searching.

If you have anything to share that you are aware of in terms of Special combinations, feel free to comment.
