I'm really glad I decided to do a color wheel as suggested.
It really will inspire me to try different combinations.
I bought 5 colors from Dick blick
Yellow, red, navy blue, turquoise and purple as well as black and white.
Using 4 parts per sample I combined 1 to 3, 2 to 2, 3 to 1 and 4 to 0 (the package color).
Used my matrix ruler to divide up the clay, I rolled each combination and put them on index cards - labelled with the color combo! (don't drop these!).
Put holes for wire and baked at 275 for 30 mins. (only burnt 1 load....) I learned to preheat oven before putting samples in......
here is the result:
now I'm going to try Skinner blending!!!
