While these two colors look nice together their tone changed somewhat when combining the clay and they tended to fight against each other. It is worth further experimenting later but in the mean time I decided to create some stenciled prints using these colors as a background. Here a clay sheet of Shaded Spruce is combined with the Neutral Gray in the form of silver acrylic paint.
The metallic black paint really pops on the Golden Lime clay. I was looking for a unique pattern and found this one among other stencils available at Shades of Clay. Stencils can work similar to silk screens but can also be used in other ways making them more versatile.
So here are the recipes using Kato clay:
7 parts Kato Turquoise
2 parts Kato Black
1 part Kato Pearl
1 part Kato Green
6 parts Kato Yellow
1 part Kato Gold
* Any of the base color "mixes" used are from my Clay Color System.
