Tuxedo is described as "a regular black"

"Tuxedo rolled in Double Helix Triton frit. Spiralled with Effetre transparent Pale Aquamarine 038 and then encased with it." See more eye candy at Laura's tumblr.

"For encased twistie with fine black stripes head for Tuxedo [far right bead] as on balance it is the least expensive and most readily available of the three CiM glasses tested."  Read more at Kitzbitz Art Glass' blog.

“In the photo you can see that I used SIS on a base of Tuxedo black. You will notice the pretty webbing, but if you look at the edges of the band of SIS you will see that it doesn't spread!” Read more on Genea’s blog on Art Jewelry Elements.

“On a base of Tuxedo, 99% fine silver foil was added and layered with Val Cox Wild Raspberry frit, a fine mix of pinks. The combination was then melted into the surface. The result is a golden peachy-rose brown silvered pattern on each bead.” See more at Darlene’s blog.

Silvered Tuxedo shards reduced over Stone Ground.

"Hades and Tuxedo are very different colors. Hades has more of a green/black base while Tuxedo is a 'super blue' glass. Both sets of shards are silvered [rolled in fine silver foil before blowing] but that does not appear to have affected the base color. Interestingly, both still appear black on the glass when laid down in shard form but the shards of Tuxedo appear to reduce to a denser blue than the shards of Hades."
Carol Oliver

“But the biggest surprise result in this test is the colour of the different blacks - I expected the Effetre black to appear quite purple when etched, but look at that Tuxedo – it’s indigo!” Read more at Lush Blogs.

"The small disc beads in the pic have been fumed with fine silver in a fairly propane rich reduction flame - nothing happened until I turned the oxygen right down. I found that the results are a little flat, dull and inconstant for me after seeing the beautiful shimmers, silver droplets and hints of iridescence that I have been able to achieve with the silvered Tuxedo stringer. The large oval bead in this picture is a Tuxedo base, with silvered Tuxedo stringer, wafted quickly through a reduction flame." Read more at Craft Pimp.

“Double Helix Psyche shards were applied to Tuxedo. Like magic, this silver infused glass that is normally purple, turned shades of metallic blues and greens! . . . Droplets of CiM's Gunmetal were added."
Darlene Collette

"I did a bead that was a base of Tuxedo and wrapped in silver foil, added some silvered ivory shards, reduced, then encased in Lauscha. The colours in the base are just the Tuxedo reacting with the silver!"
Claire Morris

"These are dots of Reichenbach Magic on black CiM Tuxedo super heated, and mashed. Nice range of colours, and the speckly web pattern in the middle of the dots is interesting too." Read more at DragonJools blog.

"You can see how much the Tuxedo bled and reacted over the base color, which made me think of an animal print pattern. I was surprised by the brownish bleeding effect and it made me immediately think of fur. I thought it might make some great Tiger skin beads, so I combined it with Peace white to make twisties, then layered them between transparent Amber to get these." Read more at Lori's blog.

"Here is a leopard print heart using Messy Tuxedo and Effetre light & dark topaz. Where the black lines are heated and cooled with a bit more concentrated heat, the black spreads a bit giving it a more soft line. This softness of the black lines gives a more natural animal print look rather than sharp black lines."

"Red end then Hades, Tuxedo and Gunmetal on the bottom. Each spider differently. Stringers were approximately the same diameter. Hades has a more green/brown edge, Tuxedo has a more blue/violet edge and Gunmetal a much warmer brown sometimes violet edge and spiders with the most variation in color."
Leslie Anne Bitgood

"Tuxedo is great for all the situations where you would use a regular black, it resists bleeding and is priced to be competitive with the blacks made in Italy. Tuxedo is a very nice black glass to work with because I find that it rarely if ever pops when heated directly in the flame, like the blacks produced in Italy."    Read more at the Frantz Art Glass blog.
