Welcome to Crafted Colour – Practical Colour Theory for Craft, which is aimed at helping you develop your Colour Confidence and Craft with Colour.
Sometimes when you make a colour palette it seems fine at the time but when you come back to it later you realise something is not right. Just like the Crystal Colour Palette below, I know the colours are reasonably accurate and all are found in the picture, but I’m just not happy with it.
I decided to tweak the palette to make it more interesting and usable, unfortunately it won’t be accurate to the photo anymore. The Palette Picker app allows you to import the photo with the palette attached or just the palette separately. I saved the palette by itself and had a play with Colour Values. Below you’ll find the results.
I think I’d be more than happy to use any of the alternatives (especially the Tones!) but I decided to go with a mix of all three mostly because I’m rather in love with the pink in the Shade row.
So, here’s you third Crafted Colour Rule – Play with the Values, especially if you’re not happy with your initial selections.
