Pantone Spring 2014 Fashion Color Placid Blue

The Pantone Spring 2014 fashion color Placid Blue is a soft pastel that is a wonderful compliment to the strong and bold Dazzling Blue.  Pantone describes it as a picture perfect, tranquil and reassuring sky and induces a sense of peaceful calmness.  This shade of blue can also be used as a neutral so it could be combined with darker colors when creating a skinner blend or working with a mokume gane technique.  I didn't have any time to play with my clay colors yesterday so hopefully I will today and have more ideas to share with you later.

So here is the clay color recipe
using Kato polyclay:

* The Dark Blue # 9-2 and White Mix # 1-2 are base mix clay recipes 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.
