CiM Limited Editions Sept 2013, part 3: striking and silver

To test the striking colours in circumstances where they’re more likely to strike, I made pressed lentil beads.

Radio Flyer: definitely opaque-looking.
Bing: has opacified a bit more. You can see the mandrel hole, but I’d list this as semi-opaque.
Absinthe: still very transparent.
Tandoori: has struck much oranger and has gone cloudy. (Though slightly unevenly at one end, which is lighter than the other). I also did a bead with psyche scrolls on tandoori – the psyche shows up as dark blue with plenty of shine and the tandoori has darkened more.

Here’s a close up of the tandoori beads.

Next I tested mint chip with copper green and psyche.

The mint chip has gone a bit streaky under both of these, but more so with the psyche. The copper green has done its thing where it goes darker in the centre with a pale halo, but it has also greyed up a great deal. Psyche has fumed the base yellow and is showing up as brownish purple. That’s fairly expected.

Here is psyche on the other neutrals.

Cake batter has stayed very clean-looking and has only been fumed a very small amount. The psyche appears very brown.

Antique Lace is a bit streaky, has stayed a pinkish brown and the psyche is fairly brown.

Muskmelon has gone streakier and fumed darker, and the psyche has blue hints. This seems the most reactive base out of the three.

And side-on.

    My only wish is to get those colours here in Australia. No one is stocking them. It’s an expensive purchase from elsewhere in the world. Love this post, really great to see how nicely those reds work up.
