Polymer Clay Color Recipe for Grayed Jade

The Pantone fashion spring 2013 color, Grayed Jade is a soft pastel shade of green and combines well with the jewel-tone Emerald.  Think of combining this soft pastel with Emerald when creating a cane, skinner blend or Mokume Gane technique rather than using it on it's own.

Here is the polymer clay color recipe for Grayed Jade using Kato clay:

1 part Mix # 7-3 - Cilantro *
1 part Silver
6 parts Mix # 1-2 - White Mix *

* See my Clay Color System for these clay base recipes.

Tip for Mixing Up Color Recipes and Such:
When I am mixing up my color recipes, I like to write the "ingredients" down so I can keep track and don't forget what colors and amounts I just used.  I found this inexpensive "white board" for writing on and when I have the  recipe just right I can record it onto my recipe card with my clay color chip.  My white board can then be easily erased, ready to use again.

Happy New Year Carolyn! I've been 'lurking' around your site for some months now, but just downloaded your pdf for mixing colors, which is just great! I have been collecting your Pantone Color recipes this morning... goofing off before i get back to work on my daughters Wedding Invitations. ( my task for the week) Thanks for the White Board idea too!
I've been enjoying all your cool ideas and items for some time now, and thought it was time to thank you for all the inspiration and encouragement I get from you! Thank you! I hope the New Year brings you and your family joy, peace and prosperity. Naomi &:-)
