Pantone Fall 2013 Fashion Color Koi

The Pantone fall 2013 color Koi is a deep orange similar to the color of goldfish in a pond.  When selling our jewelry we have found orange to be a color that people are either not crazy about or just love.   I generally like to use orange within a design as opposed to a stand alone color.
When we make our flowers, however, it is another story as we find it is one of our top sellers. These flower beads were made using the Pantone color Koi combined with the two yellow greens, Linden and Deep Lichen.

Here is the color recipe using Kato clay:


6 parts Kato Orange
1 part Kato Red
1 part Kato Gold
2 parts White Mix #1-2 *

*Note: This base color mix is found in my Clay Color System Tutorial.
