Colour Focus – Nickel Azo Yellow

Hey everyone! Today’s colour focus is going to focus on one of my favorite yellows, Nickel Azo Yellow, PY150. I love this colour for it’s bright glowing washes, and it’s rich mass tones. This pigment is a staple in making the new versions of my beloved Quinacridon Gold as well!

I love the variations of colours you can achieve with mixing this, I had a hard time getting all the colours to appear correctly for this one, those purple tones of to the right, are actually more brown with purple undertones, as you will see in the video, but the rest of the colours are true.

I hope you enjoyed the video, of course I have a small product list for you all.

KRaftin Kimmie Stamps - Cool Critters - Jessie Banks

I decided to pull out my watercolours and paint up this adorable little mouse. Once the card front was painted it felt like something was missing, so I pulled out some of my metallic paints and added a little shimmer to the glow of the lantern.

Colour Focus – Sap Green

Hey all! This weeks colour focus is on one of my most reached for colours, not for the bright vivid lively colours it makes but for the earthy side of it for leaves and grounding and all that stuff! I truly do love Sap Green.
