As the leaves begin to change and the air turns crisper, it's time to infuse your creative projects with the cozy and warm colors of the season. To help you achieve that and as part of our fall-themed offers, we have put together a new MEYSPRING color palette called Autumn Spices, which draws inspiration from the aromas of the season and the rich hues of delicious spices. In this article, we'll introduce you to the four pigment powders in this color palette and offer some tips on incorporating them into your autumn crafts.
Fall Color Palette of the Week: Autumn Spices
This palette showcases a mesmerizing mix of intense shades reminiscent of saffron red and golden curry tones. The lively colors are complemented by a subtle touch of white-gold interference, giving your fall-themed designs a high-end and sophisticated appearance.
The MEYSPRING Pigments included in this palette are:
- Wine Red: A rich and sultry red shade that evokes the aroma of a good wine.
- Golden Labradorite: A warm, golden hue with a touch of earthy sophistication.
- Bronze Stone: A deep, lustrous bronze tone that exudes luxury.
- White Chalcedony: A delicate white-gold interference pigment that adds a touch of shimmer and elegance.
Pairing colors like a pro
To create the Autumn Spices color scheme, we assessed the potential emotions and atmosphere your projects would evoke. So, this palette enables you to create a warm and inviting ambiance while incorporating vibrant highlights in critical areas. The reddish, golden, and brown tones also elicit the season's scents of cherished family dinners and tasty spices.
Wine Red and Golden Labradorite: These two mica powders closely resemble the primary colors of red and yellow but with warmer, deeper tones. Combined, they create a harmonious and inviting base for your autumn-themed projects. The intensity of Wine Red complements the golden glow of Golden Labradorite, making it the perfect combination to capture the cozy essence of autumn.
To add an element of complexity and contrast to your creations, consider using Bronze Stone. This lustrous brown shade with stunning gold undertones can bring depth and richness to your projects, making it an excellent choice for highlighting certain elements or creating a dominant neutral color base.
On the other hand, our White Chalcedony mica powder adds a contrast of value to this palette, which makes it a refreshing addition. It will enhance the elegance of your creations with its delicate white-gold interference, adding a premium touch to your autumn-inspired crafts. Whether you use it as a highlight or a base color, with its luxurious look, White Chalcedony is the perfect finishing touch to elevate your creations to the next level.
Crafting with Elegance: The 60-30-10 Rule
Using the 60-30-10 Rule when pairing and distributing colors in your artwork is highly recommended to achieve balance in your piece. This will help your audience appreciate your work while easily moving their eyes across. The idea is to color 60% of your project with the dominant colors, only 30% with secondary colors, and no more than 10% with the accent color. We have added a sketch below, colored with this palette using the 60-30-10 Rule for your reference.
When working with the Autumn Spices palette, consider the following tips:
- Balancing Act: Using the 60-30-10 Rule, you can achieve a harmonious balance by combining the rich, warm tones of Wine Red and Golden Labradorite with the more neutral Bronze Stone and the light shimmering elegance of White Chalcedony.
- Focal Points: Use Bronze Stone strategically to draw attention to specific elements of your artwork, creating focal points that captivate the viewer's eye in contrast with the light provided by White Chalcedony.
- Elegance and Shimmer: Pair the golden undertones of White Chalcedony and Bronze Stone with the metallic hue of Golden Labradorite to create a predominant base when the intention is to develop red highlights with the Wine Red.
