So yes I know it’s not Monday but this week has totally gotten away from me…so sorry! I painted 10 pieces in the shop on Monday (our closed day) and most of them (or all of the colors) were custom mixes. The girls in the shop hate when I do this b/c then you guys come in and want a color I have on an items and I don’y know the exact color combo!
This is suppose is the artist in me I just start popping the tops and mixing away. Since I paint a lot I get tired of the same colors. How this usually happens is I go for French Linen or something and we don’t have enough for my project so then I just start mixing paints (this by the way is probably one of my favorite things to do!).
So I wanted to share with you one of the recipes I used this week in the shop. I randomly created a wonderful grey. It is a mix of Graphite and Cream (never would have guessed). It makes a wonderful true grey not too blue or brown. The large console in the shop is done with this combo and a lighter versions of it is on the table in the picture below.
