I have never had a really good eye for color. I always thought it was something that artists are naturally born with. I have been struggling to create striking color schemes with polymer clay. It has become obvious to me that you have to have some contrast of light and dark or the colours seem drab. Choosing those colours isn’t easy for me.
At a recent workshop someone recommended a beading color book.Beader’s Guide To Color. It’s very interesting and I’m realising that perhaps you can learn to create good color schemes. There is some science to all of this, and I’m all about the science.
In fact in a previous life I was a computer programmer and have created a couple of apps over the last couple of years. I just finished working on one to help me create and save polymer clay recipes. I’m calling it Clay Box and it’s available in the App Store
I just recently started making a few Christmas ornaments and really liked this green I mixed. Now I have it saved in the Clay Box app so I can find it again next year. As well as sharing it with other clay addicts...
