Candied Fabrics Lesson 8 : Naturals Triad - Shades Tints and Tones

 I finally finished up the labels for the Candied Fabrics Lesson 8 : Tints, Shades & Tones.  
I used the Naturals Triad.

 Here's the color wheel with all 18 "pure hues."
I was actually using the other color wheel, but I neglected to take a picture of it ...

 Here are all the color swatches for this lesson, laid out, and ready for fusing.

 Here's a closeup of the labels.  Since this is what's been holding me back all these weeks, I finally decided to print them to regular paper and fuse the paper on the wool background.  This will never be washed, so it should be fine.   My printer is just a plain old HP Laserjet.  Not the kind that prints well to fabric.  Although I could have done it with my own handwriting, I wanted it to look a little more refined.  And so, problem solved!

Here are some of the blues. Isolated for the fun of it.

Finally done!  Now all that's left is to go through the Conclusion lesson.
Then I'll be able to dye whatever I want whatever color I desire!
I just happen to have a few blank dresses from Dharma.  
Now the hard part is deciding what lucious color(s) do I want?
Decisions! Decisions! Decisions!

Oh so pretty! I love these against the black! And the teals in this triad are just awesome!

My original Candiotic Table had paper peel and stick labels on it for YEARS and only a couple fell off, so I wouldn't worry about the paper labels. (LOL, it took me writing this class to make them fabric).

I'm so glad you enjoyed the class, you've really taken each lesson to the max, and because of it you've got a real handle on color now - wahoo!!!

Love your tints and tones. I am inspired to keep working on my charts. I still don't have my Candiotic tables completed. Can not wait to get this all done though. It will be a fabulous resource.

Thank you for sharing on your blog and for the link to the online lessons. I am going to sign up to see if it will help me with my experiments in dying wool and yarns.

The blue fabrics turned out just LOVELY.
