Cim 502: Midnight Ltd Run
This is CiM Midnight - a very, very, very dark transparent grey.
You can, if you hold it up to a light, see that it is dark grey, but just laying around on the desk - it looks like a black.
Here, on the left, is a clear bead with very thin trails of Midnight, melted in - and it has come out as a very pale grey. On the right, a self-coloured spacer.
This was horizontal stripes, heated and allowed to flow over the white. Where is has stretched out thin, it looks grey - but where it is thicker, it looks black.
Which does open some interesting possibilities. I wonder if it is reactive? It might be another way to get a true black as opposed to a purple- or blue-black. Hmmm.
Interestingly enough - the CiM website says that this colour shifts between Navy Blue and Purple - depending on the lighting. I don't see any of this at all. Curious.
