Pantone Color Recipe French Roast and Rose Smoke

I have two more Pantone Fall 2012 clay color recipes to share with you this time:

French Roast
6 parts Kato Brown
1 part Kato Black

Rose Smoke
5 parts Ecru Mix (recipe # 2-7) *
1/4 part Kato Magenta
3 parts Kato Brown
8 parts White Mix (recipe # 1-2) *

* (base mix recipes found in my Clay Color System)

Here are some beads I made using my "Mini Mokume" technique combining the colors French Roast, Rose Smoke and Pink Flambe.

Just a tip about mixing your clay colors.  I like to use large cutters to mix up larger clay color batches and find using a square shape is easier for more accurate measuring when you need to measure out 1/4 or 1/2 parts by cutting from corner to corner.

I hope you are finding these clay color recipes useful so far.  Have you mixed any of these new colors up yet  and if so, what are your favorite combinations?

Cutting out shapes for consistent amounts of colors is sheer brilliance! Thanks for the tip. I love brown and pink together.
