"Auburn seems to make Opal Yellow curdle . . .  where I've used Opal Yellow over Auburn, Opal Yellow has developed brownish orange rings around itself, which has to be my favourite reaction out of this bunch." Read more at Melanie's blog.

"The base is made with the new CiM Auburn with Ekho dots and while the photos really don't show the colors and reaction very well, you can still get an idea of how cool this combination is." Read more at Chris' blog.

"Opaque red has a tendency to be unhappy about being encased. . . . And here it is, Auburn encased. It is a little streaky - but no issues with cracking, and looks fine." Read more at DragonJools blog.

"Auburn is a very dense red - that will mostly read as an opaque - a little redder when worked than the unworked rod, and looks brown in cool light." Read more at DragonJools blog.

"Auburn [outer circle] is a gorgeous very dark purple-red. It is almost the same hue and shade value as Effetre Brown Dark Red [inner circle], but is slightly cooler in color. It is a dense opaque that doesn’t transmit light."
