HELP with color recipe!

Post by klk Beadwork » Thu, 30 Dec 1999 04:00:00



I've just come across a whole block of rather hard mint (39)
Fimo.  What I need is to make this color into a wedgewood
blue.  I have a lot of colors on hand to get mixing colors
from, but right now can't get OUT to buy any new colors.  I
need to make the mint I have into wedgewood blue.  Does
anyone have a color recipe or suggestions for this miracle
I'm asking?

I can't see how it would possibly work, as green comes from blue but not the
other way around.  And isn't Fimo mint a metallic?

Search DejaNews for wedgewood blue -- I think this had been discussed a
while ago, though I'm pretty certain it didn't include mint.

Sorry to bear bad news, and good luck,

This is the only link I have for any sort of color mixing. I don't think it's
what you need, but it might help.

Good luck.

Hi Kelly,
   Your best bet is to try adding your strongest ,darkest blue and a touch of
red. Make a small sample first to see if it will work. I'm not familiar with
the Fimo colors anymore since I switched to Premo, but the mint green *might*
be light enough to function as a white. Normally, I'd mix Wedgewood blue by
adding a bit of ultramarine blue and alizarin to a lot of white.
Good Luck!

I don't know if this will help, Kelly, but here's my recipe for
the light jasper blue, also known as Wedgwood Blue, using the Premo
pallet:
1 part colbalt, 4 parts ecru, 20 parts white

The colbalt/ecru blend produces a dusky cerulean blue (turquoise), with
some emphasis on the dusky quality.  So adding a small amount of colbalt
(1/8th?) to your mint, then blending in the white just might get the mix
you want. As mint is a pastel, I go with 12 to 16 parts white instead of
the twenty.

Hope this helps,
Katherine Dewey
