Quetzal Green and Limelight - Pantone Fall 2018 Colors

Pantone describes Quetzal Green as a deep elegant blue-green hue suggestive of rich plumage.  I have found purple and teals to be a very popular combination and this blue-green shade combines well with the Ultra violet and Crocus Petal.

Pantone describes Limelight as a pungent yellow-green, however, I  see it more as a pure yellow and having a difficult time trying to make it fit in with the remainder of the fall palette colors.  It does pair well with the Quetzal Green and I will do more experimenting which you will eventually see in some samples later on.

In the meantime, here are the recipes for the Pantone Fall 2018 Fashion colors Quetzal Green and Limelight using Kato clay.
