A good range of gum colors
OK, fall is here, September has begun, and it's time for all of us to quit the summer fun stuff and get back to work!
I thought I'd post a page of all the gum colors I use here to jump start the list from its summertime blues:
I usually teach tricolor using a PV19 magenta, a thalo blue, and an azo yellow, but students often wish they could have experimented with more color choices so I made these charts of the colors I switch around in. When I get more time to scan I can perhaps put a print next to different swatches so one can see the combinations in practice. It's not really like switching around in colors is going to make a great gum print or anything, in other words it is not a magic bullet, but it is so much fun! My latest favorite is a combo of PB60 Schmincke delft blue, PR179 Daniel Smith Perylene Maroon and PY153 Daniel Smith New Gamboge.
