New Color Tuesday – One More Week

July 6Oh SURPRISE syndee!  There are FIVE Tuesdays in July!  Here I was bidding a fond farewell to Souffle Mai Tai and welcoming Souffle Pistachio as my August color mixer and we still have one more week in July!  Actually I’m happy about that, because there was one mix I didn’t try and that was Mai Tai and Robin’s Egg.  I love the 2:1 and 4:1 Mai Tai mixes in this group.  That 2:1 mix should look great  with Latte and Cowboy or Latte and Key Lime.  I’m curious to see what the 4:1 mix will look like with Turnip or Royalty.  Oh!  With Sea Glass – I gotta try that one!

I particularly liked the Latte, Pumpkin, Cowboy, Sea Glass combo in the lower left, but I like that Royalty, Jade and Pistachio combo too… Ack, I like them ALL! my souffle moku I’ve used them all in one Mokume Gane too (well almost all..)

And my all-time favorite (for now at least) – Bluestone, Pumpkin and Canary.  Souffle is just such an exceptional clay for this technique!  It slices so easily and maintains the sharpness of the patterning.
