Top, left to right: Blues and greens came out great! I was shooting for a darker green. Turquoise always sells almost as fast as I make it up. I was hoping for a blood red, and this is kinda on the pinkish side. The purplish colors are fine, and purples always work up nicely.
Bottom, left to right: I think this mushroom/taupe color may be just about right. The very dark color is essentially a really dark mauve. It’s pretty, and it’s the closest I’ve ever gotten to charcoal gray or black. The two in the middle were intended to be combinations of blood red and black, and are instead funky maroon things. Not sure if either of these will get very far. But the painted red/purple looks fantastic.
These will be completely dry later tonight, and I’ll wind ’em up on my little bobbins. Wish list: charcoal gray/black, bigger variety of greens, bluer purples, a nice rust color. I wonder if I could even get close to recreating my handpainted corals thread. I still have enough of it for a pair of earrings.
