Pantone Fashion Colors Greenery, Kale and Primrose Yellow

What better way to start out the new year and distract us from the cold weather outside than to mix up some gorgeous spring colors.   Greenery was chosen as the color of the year which is a yellow green found in nature.  It was only natural to create some leaves by combining it with two other colors, Kale and Primrose Yellow.



All three colors were combined by making a skinner (ombre) blend and then formed to create the leaf 'cane'.  We had to add one of our signature lady bugs to finish them off.


So here are the recipes for these three Pantone Spring Fashion Colors using Kato clay.

Greenery

10 parts Kato Yellow
1-1/2 parts Kato Green
1/2 part Kato Gold

Kale

10 parts Kato Yellow
4 parts Kato Green
1/2 part Kato Gold
2 parts Kato Black

Primrose Yellow

12 parts Kato Yellow
1/4 part Kato Gold
2 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.
