Effetre Dark Brown is a very dark, reddish brown opaque colour.
Reducing Dark Brown does not appear to have any effect on its colour. It doesn't noticeably strike or reduce, and its colour is very smooth and even.
On top of Dark Brown, silver crusts up. When the silver is reduced and encased, it turns blue. It also seems to dissipate a bit with the heat of encasing, because as you can see, a lot of the blueness in the rightmost bead is blue without the benefit of any crusty silver underneath it.
Dark Brown is an indifferent base for silver glass.
And Dark Brown doesn't really do anything with other colours. There is a tiny amount of separation in my Copper Green stringer dots and lines on top of Dark Brown, and Dark Brown thins out pretty singificantly over Peace so that it looks almost translucent, but that's about it.
I haven't done much with Dark Brown, but I did make these beads.
