Test Results :: Spooky

CiM Spooky (CiM825) is a translucent white colour. I found my rods of Spooky to be a little bit shocky, and I also found that Spooky was a little sensitive to heat - it's not a chronic bubbler, but it is also not difficult to boil this colour by accident if you're not paying attention and park it in your flame for too long.

Nothing happens to Spooky when you reduce it.

Here you can see that Spooky is far more opaque than CiM Cirrus, but slightly more translucent than CiM Marshmallow.

The addition of silver fumes Spooky a gentle amber colour. When the silver is reduced and encased, most of the amber colour disappears in any non-silvered areas, but you can still see it under the silver. The silver turns a greyish colour after reducing and encasing it on top of Spooky.

Spooky is quite interesting with silver glass. It fumed yellow when I reduced this silver glass frit on top of it, and then in the rightmost bead I got a good starting strike from my TerraNova2 frit.

Copper Green separates on top of Spooky, but gets and stays so dark in colour that the only way to enjoy that reaction would be to etch the bead so that it is more visible.  Opal Yellow, Ivory, and Peace all separate on top of Spooky as well.   Ivory gets a light brown reaction line with Spooky. It's similar in colour to the line that forms around Opal Yellow when you use that colour on top of Ivory.

When Spooky is used on top of all of these colours, the only noteworthy thing that happens is that Ivory gets a darkish tan blush to it at the edges of the Spooky dots and stringer lines.

Here are some beads made with Spooky. The darker blues are Vetrofond Light Cobalt and Effetre Dark Periwinkle, and the white dots and stringer work are Effetre White.
