Pantone Fall 2019 Fashion Colors - Fruit Dove and Paloma

The last two colors of the Pantone Fall 2019 fashion color palette are a pink, Fruit Dove, and a grey, Paloma.  Fruit Dove is a bold yet pretty pink which Pantone describes as "extroverted" and "creates a presence that cannot be ignored." Paloma is "unpretentious and yet elegant".  It is one of the Fall Classics and was also one of the colors in the Pantone Spring 2014 palette.  You can see my post about it here.

Pantone Fall 2019 Fashion Colors - Guacamole & Eden

There are two shades of green in the Pantone Fall 2019 fashion colors -- both very different from each other.  Guacamole is my favorite type of green and is considered one of the "Classics" for the fall.  Pantone describes it as a "nutrient-enriched green and establishes a refreshing foundation.  Eden is a forest green and if you have my Clay Color System, you already have this recipe as it is the same as Cilantro #7-3.

Here are a few samples of these colors combined with some of the other Pantone Fall colors.  I didn't get the chance to play with the color Eden yet but I will have some samples later.


Here are the recipes using Kato polyclay:

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

Eden

Cilantro #7-3 *

Pantone Fall 2019 Fashion Colors -- Rocky Road, Sugar Almond and Vanilla Custard

Many of the Pantone Fall Colors for this fall seem to be named after food.  Not only do the names sound yummy, I find the colors are too.  I am not a real fan of browns but they seem to keep creeping into my wardrobe.  The nice thing about them, however, is they are a great neutral than can be worn with so many other colors.
An all time favorite, for instance is teal or turquoise combined with brown.  This color combination seems to be one of my best sellers in my jewelry collection as it can be neutral yet so stunning.

Sugar Almond and Teal Blue

I don't have any samples using the Rocky Road yet, however if you have my Clay Color System, then you already have this clay recipe.  So here are the recipes for these three colors using Kato polyclay:

Rocky Road
Follow clay recipe for
Burnt Umber #3-2 *

Sugar Almond
5 parts Kato Brown
1 part Kato Copper
1 part Kato Orange
1 part Kato Gold
1/2 part Kato Black

Vanilla Custard
2 parts Ecru Base #2-7 *
1/4 part Kato Yellow
2 parts Kato Pearl
4 parts White Mix #1-2 *

Pantone Fall 2019 Fashion Colors - Feeling Blue

There are three shades of blue in the Pantone fall 2019 Fashion color series.  Galaxy Blue, Bluestone, which reminds me of washed denim, and Evening Blue, a classic navy.

If you have my Clay Color System, then you already have the recipe for Bluestone -- Denim #9-8 -- and Evening Blue -- Navy # 9-7 which are both pretty close matches.  Here are some samples of these blues in a few combinations.

Pantone Fall 2019 Fashion Colors Chili Pepper and Biking Red

There are two shades of red in the Pantone Fall 2019 fashion colors that are both so rich and gorgeous and yet quite unique from each other.  Pantone describes Chili Pepper as "a spicy red that adds drama and excitement as it stimulates the senses.  Biking Red is an adventurous deep red that is strong and powerful."


I combined these two shades with the Creme de Peche and Peach Pink to create some snaps for my interchangeable jewelry.  I love how the colors contrast yet combine so well.

Pantone Fall 2019 Fashion Colors

My sweet hubby Dave use to tell me that time was my worst enemy.  That was so true and it seems I am always trying to beat the clock when I have deadlines to meet.  I am sure many of you can relate to this as well.  Between filling orders, I am preparing some new pieces for the Lake Country Art Walk which is barely 3 weeks away.  Part of my new collection for this show is in the new Pantone fall colors.  I did promise to share with you these new clay recipes soon so here is the start:

The color of the year for 2019 is Living Coral.  You will find the clay recipe I shared with you in the spring 2019 color recipes here.
I really love the new fall colors.  Leatrice Eiseman (Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute) describes them as "ranging from easy and sophisticated to strikingly different and unique". 





When mixing up my fall colors I like to make some extra color chips to play with.  They are a handy little tool when looking for various combinations.


So to start of the color recipes I thought I would start off with two colors that are from the same family as the Living Coral: Peach Pink and Crème de Pêche (a lighter version of the Peach Pink).

Peach Pink
1 part Kato Magenta
1 part Kato Orange
2 part Kato Yellow
12 parts White Mix #1-2 *


Creme de Peche
1 part Peach Pink (recipe above)
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.  You can read more here why I use Kato clay when mixing up my Pantone colors and still my preferred clay type.
