An extremely dark opal cobalt blue.




"Here we have, from left to right, Effetre 242 Medium Lapis, Effetre 240 Light Lapis, Effetre Earth, and CiM Blue Suede Shoes. In this photo, on my monitor - and take my word for it when I say that this dark blue is exceedingly hard to photograph and reproduce faithfully - the Light Lapis and the Blue Suede Shoes look like a near match - but in real life - the better match is Medium Lapis and Blue Suede Shoes."

"And this is Blue Suede Shoes on the left, and light Lapis on the right. Once cooled, it is a near perfect match. Oddly though, when hot, it is significantly lighter than the BSS, but when they came out of the kiln - they all matched." Read more at DragonJools blog.

"White dots are Effetre white and interestingly fuzzy over Blue Suede Shoes."

"All in all, this is a pretty color, if you can get it to behave, don't mind a little bit of inconsistency in color, and if you like opals in general. It's not cobalt, though, in my opinion. It's closest to lapis blue." Read more at Kandice's blog.

"Dots on white. A little bleeding around the edge. Well - more like 'fuzzification.'" Read more at DragonJools blog.

"Dark, dense, opal cobalt blue. There was some degree of translucency but hard to see- more like a bit of a glow when there was a bright light shining behind it."
Gloria Sevey
"Blue Suede Shoes was really creamy and smooth, and I was surprised by how much it darkened in the kiln. I thought it was more of an opal color, and it may be an opal if not worked too hot, but I heated and reheated the bead many times to get the flowers attached properly, and this may have caused the color to become more opaque."
