Yeah, I admit it, I get obsessed with a color from time to time (okay, ALL THE TIME). Right now it’s Souffle Guava – a regular pink in the package that somehow transforms to a warm pink when cured (although it doesn’t actually change color). And look how nice it looks with the 18% grey background. I’m also currently obsessed with 25% grey which is a lightly darker grey, so the Guava really pops against that as well. I thought I would start the month with three of the bright cheery colors in the Souffle palette and then add a fourth bright color and see what happens. Look at that Guava/Pistachio 1:1 mix – what a lovely soft golden color! And the green next to it! Fresh Spring. Canary and Pistachio 1:1 made kind of a brighter version of Key Lime that I will certainly use with my dirty steel color! Guava continues to surprise me when I mix it!
Lets look at the sub palettes:
#1 has the beautiful calming colors I love in the Summer. They also make me crave lemonade for some reason. #2 is my typical bouncy warm colors that I adore. Did you notice that the Robin Egg/Pistachio 1:1 mix looks like a cool green in the #1 palette and a warm green in the #2? Magic! #3 is just the right balance and warm and cool tones with the Robin Egg anchoring the brighter colors.
