Mad for Monday - Frit!
I'm not a slave to fashion or anything but every so often, I figure I better check out what colors are in style. Honestly, if you've done any shopping lately, I don't know how you can miss the orchid, mauve, deep blue that is out there. Every shirt or blouse I've liked is either orchid or mauve. People have commented on it too, as if it were something I was trying to do. Heck, it's the only color available!
Sometimes I feel that way about glass too. The color palette is dictated by the glass manufacturing companies, meaning you only can get what they make. I don't think any of the factories take a look at the Pantone color palette when they make glass colors.
I add to the palette by using frit. I hopped on over Val Cox Frit to select a few frits that would match the Pantone fall color palette.
First, there's Bittersweet, a deep chocolate brown.
I contrast the Bittersweet with Fairydust, a cool greenish-blue.
Then I'd tie the colors all together using Champagne Rain, a mix of browns, tans and creams.
I'd put the frit on a neutral glass color like white, ivory, black or even taupe. What do you think of my color palette?
