Pantone Fall 2016 Fashion Colors Lush Meadow, Spicy Mustard and Bodacious

The last three colors in the Pantone fall 2016 Fashion Report are fun and vibrant.  Lush Meadow is a rich almost emerald-like shade of green.  Pantone describes Spicy Mustard as a spicier, zestier yellow than other seasons.  Bodacious is a bright rich purple with a hint of pink.  When I first mixed up this color, I found it to be quite similar to Radiant Orchid but with more Violet and less Magenta.

I think combinations of these colors would all work together but you could combine any of these with Aurora red as well.

So here are the last three clay recipes using Kato clay for the fall fashion colors:

Lush Meadow
10 parts Kato Green
1 part Kato Blue
1 part White Mix # 1-2 *

Spicy Mustard
9 parts Kato Yellow
1 part Kato Gold
1 part White Mix # 1-2 *

4 parts Kato Magenta
3 parts Kato Violet
3 parts White Mix # 1-2 *

* Note:  These clay color recipes are created using Kato Polyclay.  Any of the base color "mixes" used are from my Clay Color System.
