Paying my dues

My Fairy God Mother of Color

I get by with a little help from my friends!

One of my biggest challenges has been mixing the colors I want and getting the perfect color palette. Now thanks to Nancy Ulrich and her new Color Mixr App I can mix colors WITHOUT pulling out my hair and WITHOUT wasting clay guessing the color ratios. This app lets you use whatever picture inspires you and then it breaks it down by the colors you want and then it shows you HOW to mix those colors using either Premo or Fimo.

Here I have shown you what my inspiration pic was after it was loaded to the Color Mixr and I have the screen that shows how to mix each color and then my VERY HAPPY results! As you can see I used the colors in a skinner blend to come up with these great blends. Have you ever done a skinner blend and just gotten MUD??? Well this App will make sure the colors are complementary you can look and adjust them in your mixing wheel.

This design was thanks to my  guild friend and mentor Diane Villano this is a class she taught for her technique Airbrushed beads. Diane teaches many of her classes at this great shop in Cheshire Ct Kandu Beads check out their webpage for more upcoming  classes!
