I haven't read the group for awhile but I just saw a message about a color mixing guide.  I would love to find out more about this.  Anyone know who has this wonderful tool?

Let me fix this.....there.  I'm interested in the color chart someone
mentioned.  Who posted that in the beginning.  I would love a copy.

A color chip chart is in the works, and hopefully it will be ready to
mail out the first "editions" by the end of the month.  I hesitate to
give much more info right now, since we're still in production.   The
projected price is $10 plus p/h.   It will have actual 1/4" "dots" of
all colors of Fimo, Cernit, Promat, and Sculpey 3, as well as Granitex.
It's done by hand, carefully baked at standard temps as suggested by
each manufacturer, for 15 minutes average.  (less, of course, for the
white/transp. colors)   Thus, you won't have to try to guess what color
any given product will look like, baked.  It will be in front of you!

The first run will be of 300 charts, around 100 of which are already
"spoken for" by a local wholesaler/retailer here.  Anyone thinking this
is a small run needs to try punching out 300 each of close to 100
colors.   Good thing insanity doesn't run in my family...this project
would set things rolling, for sure!  <g>

We will make a general announcement when we're about ready for mailing,
so folks can get their checks to us.

I've purposely not given the name of my co-worker in this, since she may
not want the e-mail traffic until we're ready.  If she wants to say
anything now, she can step forward!   Otherwise, we'll get back to you
in a couple of weeks---at that point we'll be ready for you all to get
your chip charts in time for holiday sales projects.

WeeFolk Creations in Prior Lake, MN (phone 612-447-3828, fax 612-447-8816)
sell a small color mixing chart for about $3.00.  It has mostly pastels,
divided up by themes:  Countrycolors, southwestern, etc.  I have used
several of their formulas.  Wee Folks also has great prices on Fimo and
molds and books,  and they take credit cards.  I think the minimum order
is $50 and they have been very nice to deal iwth.

I think mostly everybody knows already, Kel!  I posted a survey yesterday for
people to e-mail to me if they want to be added to the notification list, or
to watch rec.crafts.for_sale when they are done. (I have about six replies
already.) By the way, in case your e-mail trouble is still happening, I'm
UPS'ing 300 blank charts today!  Should arrive next week.

The color mixing chart I can get is not the same as Kelly's mine is one
that has about 60 different colors and it is printed-ah the inconsistencies
of printing processes as Kelly can attest by the differences she found in
making the color chip chart.  I think Kelly's is a must for all who do the
clay since it is hard to know if the Red from Fimo is the Red from Cernit
is the Red from Sculpey without buying them and cooking them.  I do  lots
of strange stuff like making beads from flowers and spices but I don't
think I would tackle the project that Kelly and Sherry are.  Go for it  and
good luckIn article

-> clay since it is hard to know if the Red from Fimo is the Red from Ce
-> is the Red from Sculpey without buying them and cooking them.  I do

You hit the nail on the head as to why we were inspired to do it.  It's
not fun to plan something, hope the color sheet is even CLOSE to the
tone you want, and then find out it's got blue rather than red
undertones... grrrr!

-> think I would tackle the project that Kelly and Sherry are.  Go for i
 good luck

Sherry has designed a wonderful folder!   The only unlovely thing about
this project is punching out all those 1/4" dots.   This ain't a
mechanized operation, folks!  <snort!>

   Hi:  This sounds wonderful, having the colors in front of you.  I've
got this list of color mixes, and that list, and another, etc. and it's
hard to find the one I want, when I want it.  So 100 colors with a sample
is well worth the money.  Tell me how do I go about getting one?
