Test Results :: Serengeti


CiM Serengeti (CiM729) is a medium, yellowish brown colour. On CiM's website it says that Serengeti has reddish overtones, and the paddle colour is very orange, but achieving colours like that with Serengeti was not possible for me.


Serengeti is a striking colour. The bead on the right was reduced, but reduction is not necessary to darken it. It will darken with repeated heating and cooling as you're working your bead.


Silver crusts up on the surface of Serengeti, and I think I see the faintest hint of a reddish blush underneath it. When I reduced and encased the silver, it turned pink and blue.


Serengeti seems to make a decent base colour for silver glass, but not a magical one.


When you put Tuxedo on top of Serengeti, it makes the Serengeti separate and raise up in halos around it.

Serengeti does a very interesting thing when you put it on top of Ivory. It both separates gently and if you look at the dots of Serengeti on top of Ivory, it almost looks like there is space underneath them and you could pry them up. The Serengeti separated underneath Ivory as well, screwing up the edges of my stringer lines and dots.

The colour of Serengeti can apparently be made more vivid by applying it on top of Peace or White in thin layers.

These beads all contain some Serengeti:
