CiM African Gray

CiM African gray is a limited edition colour. The rods have a shampoo-like sheen and unlike most of CiM’s colours, they actually retain this effect after being melted. I only have one rod of this colour for testing, but I would love to have more. If our vendors get any over here I’ll grab some while it’s available. I do have some CiM hippo, another limited edition grey – it is a bit browner and doesn’t have the sheen.

I made one plain pressed bead – you can see that the colour darkens slightly as you work it. I was specifically trying to keep the streakiness here. The nugget has silver foil on the surface and was reduced. The foil has fumed the surface darker, developed some interesting colours, and the grey’s sheen makes the foil seem to almost float on the surface of the bead.

Same two beads, another side. You can see the fumed colour better.
