31 Days of ASCP, Day 19….Mixing Color!

Hav you tried mixing color yet?
We have done a little bit of mixing and playing to make new colors.  
The easiest way to start is to make different shades of your favorite colors is by adding Old White to them.

We like to play using teaspoonfuls, that way you are not using too much of your paint experimenting.  
Another important thing to remember is to RECORD your mixes in case you want to make them again!  Paint a swatch on a sheet of paper and right down your formula under it.  Another way we’ve seen it done is to use paint stirrers with the color on it and write down the formula on the paint stir stick.  
Mixing is not just for Old White….mixing 2 and 3 colors together is really fun!
This glorious apple green was made with 3 colors – Antibes Green, Arles and Chateau Grey!
One color we have failed at over and over is Orange!  So, we are super excited that Barcelona Orange will be back anytime now!  We can’t wait to pop the lid on that paint something Orange!  
Have you mixed anything together yet?

Do tell…we know there are some fabulous recipes out there!
