Orchid Hush - Pantone Fall 2011 Color

Orchid Hush is very similar to last seasons' Pantone color, Lavender (see recipe # 10-6 in my Clay Color System), except much paler and with a touch of silver.

Here is the clay color recipe for the Orchid Hush:

     12 parts of White Base Mix #1-2 (from my Clay Color System)
     1/2 part of Mix # 10-2 (= to Premo Purple)
     1 part Silver

This will make an excellent compliment to the Pantone color Phlox when working with a mokume gane, creating canes or other favorite techniques.  Try using it in place of white when combining your colors.
