Winter decided to visit us in February after a spectacularly glorious January of 75 degrees, cool breezes, sleep weather nights.. It was actually colder when I got home here to SoCal than it was in New Jersey at the Clayathon!
My new format here for the NCT is still evolving and you will notice that I'm now labeling those sub palettes I pull out - just in case anyone is clipping and saving them! It's kind of my favorite part- creating those sub-palettes. Instead of just imagining them, I am actually creating them with cloned versions from the original photo.
Anyway, you will see that Cinnamon is still my star (although Jade is now sneaking into my orbit a little more each time I'm at the clay table!) I really like thepallet that you see with the 1:1 mixes in the bottom line of the master here. It's different, it's earthy, it's got attitude. That Cinnamon/Pistachio 1:1 is a neat color - kind of a bolder neutral than Premo Ecru or Souffle Latte.
Crazy stuff happens when you mix with Pistachio - I NEVER know what I'll get! Check out the first sub-pallete - Cinnamon, Jade and Cinnamon/Pistachio 1:1. Virtually any other of the colors could sub in for the Jade with these two other colors paired up!
That Cinnamon-Robin Egg-Jade/Pistachio is an interesting sub-palette with the Cinnamon warmth balancing the two cool colors. Nice colors for a study or an office don't you think?
And the Robin Egg-Pistachio-Robin Egg/Pistachio 1:1 mix is just a happy Spring palette. Looking for neutral baby colors? This is it! Julie Eakes could use these colors for her grandbaby arriving this Spring. (I've never seen a more EXCITED grandmother)
I've got the March NCTs all completed and Robin Egg will be my base color (yes, Cinnamon makes a few appearances!)
