Colour Inspirations

Colour Inspiration Boards

For a while now I have been a bit frustrated with my colours when using my clay, I have never been getting quite the colour I have imagined in my head and have been working a lot on guess work a bit of this and a bit of that and ending up with quite a lot of mud.

I ordered Polymer Clay Colour Inspirations Book by Lindly Haunani and Maggie Maggio. Its a great book and I have been working through the exercises. Here are my collages from one one of the exercises for my interpretation of the what the colours mean to me.

From the top they are Cold/Warm, Earth/Rich and Vibrant/Hard, though these are my interpretations of these colours when asking around the family what the colours said to them they had differing feelings from the colours.

Slacking off so soon

Dinan, Brittany France
Ahh but I have a valid excuse, I've been on holiday to Dinan in France and had a wonderful time. Its such a lovely place I want to move there !!!

Obviously I wasn't on holiday all this time when I got back I set about making changes to my website to allow for me to accept orders and payments direct from my site and today it is complete at last (apart from a few minor tweaks ;)

Please take the time to have a look and I hope you like it as much as I have enjoyed the hard slog of getting it up and running.
