The top row of the large photo contains the 3 colors that I’m mixing with the featured color on the far right. The bottom 3 colors are the colors mixes created by mixing the color directly above with equal portions (1:1) of the featured color.
I’ll admit it, I’m obsessed with Premo™ Champagne Pearl! I’m NOT a pink person, so this is quite alarming to me that I would love this color sooooo much-LOL. It’s a perfect light background for silkscreening and transfers because it is not a white, not a grey, but a warm light neutral -and the sparkles in the pearl just add to the detail.
Oh! And it is quite a mix color as well – you know, when you want a pearl color that doesn’t exist and you want to keep a little warmth in the mix? Try THIS color for that mix. Speaking of mixes – every one of these great mixes are a lighter, sparkly version of the original color – maybe slightly warmer. But still rich colors on their own. I can’t pick a favorite, but the Teal and Spanish Olive are really lovely, especially next to each other. I was also surprised by how much pearl came through on the Sculpey Soufflé™ mixes as well.
I love when a gently unassuming color turns out to be a Super Hero in color mixing! My favorite pairing is the Champagne Pearl with Antique Gold like these heishi earrings I made. The silkscreen earrings are created with an Antique Gold acrylic paint as well.
And get this! I even SCULPTED a little with it. I used to sculpt mushrooms out of Plaster when I was in high school, so I tried my hand again to create a background for some of my “tillies” or air plants. The Champagne Pearl has a role in all these colors, not just the stems (which are straight Champagne Pearl). The small mushroom tops are Premo Copper/Champagne Pearl 1:1 and the large mushroom is Raw Sienna/Champagne Pearl.
