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.
