CiM 512 Halong Bay

Can't believe I haven't blogged this one. This is NOT a new colour - but arguably one of CiM's most beautiful. This colour alone could justify their existence. ;-)

This is CiM 512 Halong Bay - one of Creation is Messy's translucent colours - in the most gorgeous shade of blue. I seldom get around to mixing it with other colours - as I just haven't gotten tired of looking at it just the way it is.

This is a spacer made with Halong Bay by itself. It is a light translucent - by which I mean that it is quite transparent - it takes a fair build-up of it before you loose that translucent, light-transmitting quality.

BTW - Halong Bay is a real place, in Vietnam. The name literally translates to "Decending Dragon" - how cool is that? - and you would probably recognize it instantly from numerous movies as the tropical waters with the big rocks sticking straight up out of, i.e. in "Tomorrow Never Dies."

And this is Halong Bay over white.

And finally, Halong Bay over a core of Dichro. Purdy, ain't it?

  3. Halong Bay is wonderful. I like to make hearts with it, the thicker it is the more translucent and shimmery.
