Help! Lost color chart

Post by Deb Jens » Sun, 02 Jun 1996 04:00:00



Ack!

A while back I bought a handy little color-mixing chart for FIMO.  It
was a three-part fold-out job from the local craft store, showing colors
and recipes for "Victorian Colors", "Frosted Colors", etc.  I put it some-
where safe, and now of course I can't find it!  Nor can I remember who
published it.

I am so bummed - I have chips for some of these colors, but not all, and
wanted to try some new ones.  Anyone know what i'm talking about and
where to get it or something similar?  Yes, I know trial-and-error
color mixing works
too, but i'm looking for shortcuts here....

Thanks,

Aloha,

deb

Hi Deb,

I have the chart you are speaking of. Gwen Baker got it for me from a shop I
believe in Columbus, Ohio. Gwen isn't online at the moment so I'm not
sure if she is able to get anymore. Is there a specific color combo
you wanted?

Diana

I saw it a few years ago at TSI in Seattle, and when I went back to buy
it they were out. I never got around to going back again to get it, and I
don't know if they'd still have it, but you could try ... 1-800-426-9984

What the heck, why reinvent the wheel! Some people enjoy process and some
enjoy product... A local polymer person (who has a MFA in photography)
said one semester all they did the entire semester was photograph a grey
card, and she said the color exercises in PolyInforMer reminded her of
that semester. She said she learned a lot and her photographs improved
technically a lot, but she wasn't "up" for doing it again with clay.

So good luck in finding it
