I considered not chiming in, I too found it more like an old MTV Jazz video ( am i aging myself) than helpful. im fairly new and im sure with some of the co'lors you need different top fusing consideraions - I may be wrong.

Still a big fan of your videos

While I think there's room for improvement like others have already mentioned, I didn't really have trouble with the lesson. I simply stopped the video and did screen captures of each color swatch, then compiled all of them into my own version of a poster to print.

Yesterday I went one step further and spent a little over two hours making the samples in 1.5" tile size. Thrilling to have 80 new colors to add to my work!

Valerie,

Those samples and photos are just awesome! I hope we can print a poster someday, but it takes awhile to get things through the queue here--people just suggest so many good ideas!

Good on you for forging ahead by making your own new color samples!

Thanks Mary Kay! There's nothing like having actual samples to work with, in my opinion. Of course, as was the intention of the lesson, now my mind is reeling with all the other possibilities!

To me this fits hand in glove with color theory from painting. I did have to pause to reflect on the numbers but the hold button made that easy and see if RGB or CMKY wheels were being applied. Since I work in custom frit blends it provides a base but not a direct road map but is a good springboard of info. I will need to test concepts through the platform of choice. But it has eliminated a lot of the work I'm going to be doing and provides a laser focus for me to fine tune for my needs since there are 360 color degrees and thousand of custom options by combining frit colors; you just cut my work in half and that is much appreciated! A process improvement to test tiling what you think works against known standards for cyan, magenta and yellow. My old method worked but was personal knowledge and my tendency went darker than needed so I think I'll save time there as well. Thanks Valarie for posting your test tiles appreciate your efforts as well.

This was very difficult to follow. I kept waiting for an explanation as to combining colors and transparent glass. Would love a tip sheet.

The music is Cordonnier Breakaway (Hodel & Terry's Summer Sun Remix).

I agree with the other commenters who requested a chart that shows the colors used to create other colors. This video is more like a commercial for Bullseye than something people can actually use.
