Sunset colors

Sunset colors

The sunset pinks are some of the most amazing colors – they are also some of the most short-lived in the sunset.  At my beach, they tend to tint the clouds floating away from the sunset and only right after the sun has finally set – may for 5 minutes or so. The warmer  the air, the more pink appears also.

 

Mar 1b1So first let’s start with a Premo mix of Fuchsia and  Orange.  The mix chart looks like a sunset on it it’s own!

 

 

 

 

Mar 3-1But the pink color pulled out in the color chart is a very soft pink, so let’s go with Premo! Blush and White (Yes, this is the mix that started my fascination with Blush!)  We very quickly nailed that soft pink of the color chart.  Now I want to mix it with Ecru and see what happens..oh!  and Rhino Grey!  I bet that would look awesome!  And I don’t even like pink and I want to mix this color with EVERYTHING..

 

Next week, we mix the purple and Premo Jungle goes for a joy ride through several other colors as well.  We also need to start thinking about what to mix for April – maybe Spring flowers?

 

Join me on my live CraftCast on March 18th!  I will be showing you how I transfer sketches to Souffle clay and then color them with Chameleon pens after baking. Want to get a jump on the class?  I have a link to my photographs, converted to line drawings that I use for transfer: https://synssculpeyblog.files.wordpress.com/2014/10/syns-flowers1.pdf  You need to download it to see the images.
