Behind the scenes: Quick Tip: Fresh Palette Picks

We set up a color palette exercise in-house to see what would come of it.

The criteria:

  • Select colors from current production styles
  • Include one or more new green styles
  • Name the palette and document the color palette with a photo (optional)

We customized a sample set, which so conveniently contains accurate color samples based on fired 3mm sheet glass, included a stack of numbered forms and a camera. Set up between workshops, we turned out about 50 color palettes in less than a day. Thanks to everyone who jumped in! It was good fun & might be something we’ll set up again. It’s no surprise that we’re all about color.

Plaid not required.

We picked five favorites and made them the basis of Quick Tip: Fresh Palette Picks.

So much good material!

These images are from the studio session. We used the plexiglass stand to let light into the transparent styles.
