Pantone Spring 2014 Fashion Color Sand

Sand is another one of the Pantone Spring 2014 fashion colors that is more neutral.  It is a rich warm beige with a slight yellow tone just like the sand on a tropical beach.


Here (see picture below) I used the color mixing formula from my Clay Color System tutorial to combine the Pantone color Sand with the hot and spicy Cayenne.  Included with my system are cards to print out for saving and organizing your color blend chips.  You will notice the changes in the Cayenne as more of the Sand color is added to it.  It not only becomes lighter but slightly muted as well.


I then used this color mixing formula for creating several styles of Bargello motif clay veneers.  The bargello veneer on the left with the Cayenne in the background is bolder than the veneer on the right that has the color  Sand.  The veneer in the center is another Bargello style with no background showing.  Each one has a unique look all used from the exact same blend.


Here is the clay color recipe
using Kato polyclay:


* The White Mix # 1-2 is a base mix clay recipe found in my Color System tutorial which is available in our Etsy shop (as an instant download) or in our ArtFire Studio (which will be e-mailed within 24 hours).

** If you would prefer to have our color recipe 4x6 index cards (without the complete color system), we now have them available in our Etsy shop as an instant download.  Click here to view.
