Wonderweb - Unique Hades 511820-2

Unique Hades 511820-2 is an extremely dense black but has a different formula to regular Hades. It webs and spreads beautifully on the surface of a bead but also picks up wisps of silver in an oxygen rich flame in much the same way as CiM Gunmetal. It is much stiffer to work with than Gunmetal however and looks a true black when pulled thin as Hades does. In my opinion it displays the best properties of both of these two CiM blacks.

The silver/black webbing in this bead came from applying a stringer that was about 0.8mm across over my encasing layer of Effetre 006 clear and then simply melting it down flat in a fairly hot, slightly oxy rich flame.
