Messy Tester's Feedback

  • Onyx is a dense and shiny black.
Onyx was really nice - not bubbly or boiley. – Joy Munshower

"Onyx looks to be a very good substitute for the traditional Effetre intense black. It is very very black- it is possible to get a slight purplish tone if you really stress it and stretch it thin. It will web when heated a lot. It also seems to have just the slightest hint of a metallic sheen in some places." Read more at DragonJools blog.

"These little striped lentil beads show how Onyx behaves over Swan [left] & Cotton [right]. Over Swan it holds its crisp edges quite well, though I have overheated [boiled] it whilst melting the stringer down flat and caused some textured micro-bubbles to form. Over Cotton it looks quite different, those crisp edges are nowhere to be seen and the Onyx stringer has taken on a feathered look as I melted it in over the top."

"Onyx is a dense black with no major metallic reactions. But it was a happy accident to see that it did bring out some beautiful blues with my own hand blended Pendragonfyre frit. As Onyx is so dense, each of these beads has a CiM Clear core with just a layer of Onyx. This makes it an economical choice for using up shorts of clear as they are hidden in the finished bead."

"Onyx is the shiniest black I’ve ever worked with. Even when overheated and marvered, it still stays super shiny. I pulled a stringer from it and it stays black with no other hues. I love this color!"

"Onyx is a new black. It is very dense but does bleed on Peace."
