This is a dark grey slate - reminds me of CiM Admantium actually - and you can see the layers in the cross section.
It works out to be a rich, dark streaky slate colour with a hint of warmth to it.
A simple wound bead doesn't show the streakiness much.
But beads made using the "full gather" method show much more streakiness - almost as good as using a cane or twisty.
This bead is a base of Chocolate Noir, with ivory dots, and more Chocolate Noir on top. The Chocolate Noir is breaking up and spreading in a most satisfactory manner.
This bead is:
- clear base (more stable)
- encased in ivory
- trails of Chocolate Noir
- heated significantly
Definitely looking forward to using this more!
