Hi All,

Hope you are all having a nice start to the New Year 2017 and getting in some clay play. 

I had a lot of fun doing some exercises in a book on color theory for polymer clay (Polymer Clay Color Inspirations, by Lindly Haunani and Maggie Maggio). 

One thing I did was spend a few minutes arranging my raw clay stock in a color wheel. Then of course I had to make a color wheel for each brand, which led to a shopping list of missing colors!

The point of the exercises from the book that I did today was to see how colors mix, and how they can be altered with additions of white, gray or black. Labeling the results of the exercises leaves me with great reference tiles for future mixing as I go.


The images: a collage of four of the color mixes; recipe and map of one color Yellow, and the colors before mixing, 



Cheerios, Amy

I finished up with what I could do with stock colors and have a nice starting reference catalog!

 And I started on the next exercise which is to make little buttons that show two-color mixes.

the center of each button has a 50% tinted version and the flip side has a pie-chart recipe of the colors used in the mix.

its really nice to discover how to mix colors from the basic primary and secondary colors.

Wonderful work!! You are doing something vital to design. Since you know how your colors will behave, you'll be freed up to design new projects and have confidence in the end result.
