Glaze Color Charts and Their Use
It's really starting to feel and look like spring out there! Do you have your spring glazes in stock and ready to go? If not, here are some recommendations from BCS.
What colors do you think of when you think spring? Me... well, pink, purple, yellow, green, blue... all in pastel are the ones that immediately come to mind. They remind me of Easter, and Easter reminds me that spring is here.
One of the easiest ways to get your "color on" is to check out the color charts available from the different glaze manufacturers.
Let's take a look at the Amaco Velvet Underglaze color chart. Immediately, I'm drawn to a few colors that remind me of spring. For instance, the Peach V315 is the perfect pinkish color for me. Not too pink, not too orange or red, just the right touch of them all.
The next color that sparks my interest is the Iceburg Blue V328. It has the right undertones for me and what I plan on using it for. It also goes really well with the Peach.
The next "go-to" chart for me is the Coyote Cone Six chart. I use a lot of Amaco glazes, but I think I have more Coyote in my supply closet then any other glaze.
They have a variety of colors that fit my own personal style, and a lot of them come in pre-mixed gallons, and dry form. One of my favorite spring colors is Turquoise Matt 033. It reminds me of a robin egg and is perfect for spring decor!
My customers love having the ability to pick that "perfect" color, and I'm happy to have the charts available for just that reason!
