CiM 805: Obsidian (Again)

CiM's Obsidian, as I've mentioned before, is a very, very dark, warm grey - that reads as black when used by itself.

I thought I would try it with some Opal Yellow (Effetre 266)  in a twistie.

The Obsidian does bleed out into the Opal Yellow, but in a very pleasing way - the warm grey/brown working nicely with the warm, buttery Opal Yellow. The end result is a sort of toasted zebra effect. 


  1. That is a really neat color combination. I like how, on the single doughnut bead, the yellow almost looks transluscent and gives the stripes a 3D effect. Stunning!

  2. Lovely color combination - love it.
