Women’s palette: What’s the color code assigned to 2013?

It has already been predicted. This season designers and other creative people have taken note of consumers and their desires to be awaken by color.  Green is going to be the popular go-to color trend that we will express energy and nature. There are going to be interesting complimentary color combinations assigned to the color green as well. Looking toward the color wheel you an expect to see orange and green combine and that my friends, is one example of an exciting color combo!

Many shades of GREEN will be the hot trend to wear in 2013.

Many shades of GREEN will be the hot trend to wear in 2013. Do you have anything in emerald-green?

Along with the green hues, you can expect to see a variety of green. Vibrant yellow greens, subtle jade tones, greens with grey undertones. Gem-stone emerald-green and all nature inspired green tones will adorn clothing, make-up, jewelry accessories, fabrics, interior designs/home decor and more.

There are also great colors combinations that will introduce themselves as statement colors such as the colors deep violet, bright poppy red, nectarine/citrus, and refreshing lemon tones.

For evenings, the highlighted colors are dusty blues, and warm neutrals.

Looking forward to the predicted color trends of 2013.

Do you have items ready to fill the bill of the color green explosion?  Have you thought about how you can combine the bright statement colors that will also be popular?  If you are not sure about how some of these colors look together, be brave and try the different color combinations, I know I will in my future art creations.

Happily, I am ahead of the curve in creating some items that already have these combinations incorporated.  To view and purchase jewelry art that is fashionable and on-trend, as well as hand-made, please browse the Club Creative Studio website. You will certainly view Art That Sets You Apart.

Color Me Happy

17 Jan

                                                  An artist, uses some aspect of color theory everyday.   I hand mix my clay colors and when I  hand-torch my glass, I combine the molten glass rods together in different ways each time using color theory as a basis for making a variety of colors in the creation of my hand-made beads which are incorporated in jewelry or in a home decor item.

The understanding of the color wheel gives one an opportunity to appreciate the relationship between colors and their combinations.   Bands of color are arranged in a segmented circle or “wheel” to show their relationships more effectively.

The use of color is a skill that needs to be learned.  In interior design, color can arouse appreciation, and invoke and stimulate more thoughts and feelings than any other aspect.  Color and the combinations of color can stimulate, soothe, or enhance your world.  In clay, I color myself happy too.

Within the color wheel, red, yellow and blue are known as the (primary colors) .  Mix together two specific primary colors and you will create one of the (secondary colors) violet, orange and green.  Mix red and yellow to make orange, yellow and blue to make green and red and blue make violet.  Mixing equal parts of primary and adjacent secondary colors will produce tertiary colors.  For example, red and violet make crimson, blue and green produce turquoise, and yellow and green create lime. 

When I work with clay, I mix my own colors to use in my art.  I mix by hand and by use of a pasta machine.  Clays are simply twisted and rolled together or when I use a pasta machine, the clay is folded over after each pass through the rollers until the color is solid or until the marbled effect is achieved.  I have many considerations when I mix colors. Learning simple rules means that I can adapt, interpret, and break the rules to suit my own aims.  That type of messing around with color makes me happy.  Color me happy!

Examples of color use for me are: harmonizing …color combinations with similar tonal value … no one color stands out from the rest, contrasting …color combinations which strongly contrast with each other (black and white, or light and dark, etc.), accent …a small amount of color used to add a spark of contrast or interest.

There are other ways that I am able to color clay.  Alcohol-based inks can be added to white or translucent clays.  Oil paints, pastels, fabric dyes, acrylic paint in small amounts even concentrated tea an also be added for clay tinting.  Inclusions like powders, pigments, dry tempera and crayon shavings can also be added to clay for tints.

I use the color wheel many days to define hue, value,and  intensity. Color scheme considerations are the next step to consider what I will mix.   I discovered a site that will help you if you need a site to ”color you happy” easily, it’s a professional color-matching application that will help you build beautiful color schemes quickly and easily.  The site: http://www.colorschemer.com/online/ and software at  http://colorschemer.com takes it a step further. 

Color yourself happy.
