Pantone Spring 2015 Fashion Color Scuba Blue

The color Scuba Blue is, as Pantone describes, an invigorating turquoise that conveys a sense of playfulness.  This vibrant, yet cool shade, adds a splash of excitement to this new spring palette that offers a feeling of escape to some tropical island.

Pantone suggests pairing this turquoise shade of blue with Classic Blue and Lucite Green.  That was my first thought when I was mixing up the new spring colors and will share with you my results as soon as they are finished.

Scuba Blue

This color is identical to the Teal recipe found in my "Clay Color System" tutorial* but with a slight change:

Follow the recipe for Teal # 8-4 * but replace the pearl with 3 parts of the White Mix #1-2*.  The white mix will give it the lighter tone it needs and brighten it up more.
