Yes, indeed. I've learned my lesson! If I see a new color and think, "ugg", it's GUARANTEED that I will soon be cooing, "ahhh" about that very same color. And yes, it's happened AGAIN. The new Souffle color Mocha didn't impress me when I pulled my unextruded lump of Mocha out of the (treasure) box of new color samples I received. You see, I'm a die-hard Latte fan- can I find room for TWO neutral beiges in my clay life? The answer (of course) is ABSOLUTELY!!! So, I decided that I would feature my new love in the NCT mixes for May - using 2 other new Souffle colors and 2 of the older (but still favs) Souffle colors. Oh, and by the way - try mixing the Mocha with Premo! Gold 1:1 - it's Gold with a Souffle surface!
First up, my new fav Mocha meets the king of color, Sea Glass. Every single one of these mix colors is a HOT interior color for homes right now! (Broken foot, binge-watching Property Brothers) I think I want a coat in every one of these colors as well! What about using one of these mixes instead of black as the accent color, edging on a summer necklace? Ohh, with a mango-like color? A light lemon color? My hands are literally itching to try that!
And with that, I think it's time to fire up the knee scooter and scoot out to the studio!
