On day 4 I played with lumps of clay that were laying on my work table. I really do need to clean up my work area once in a while! I like to mix colors!!! Mixing colors is one of my favorite things to do. Not just clay...I like mixing paint colors, too. I mixed several lumps together and got a lovely coral color. I decided it looked pretty good with some left over Midnight Blue that was sitting there so this is the flower that came from this combo.
Next I had some of the coral left over so I lightened it with white and put it with some lavender.
For this last flower I used the left over lightened coral and added some yellow that was sitting there to get more of an orange. I put the orange with some brown and a buttery yellow that were just waiting for this opportunity and got two canes with a bit of a Mexican flare. I really like how this flower turned out!!
Just a note: I made the canes on day 4 and the flowers on day 5.
