Candied Fabrics : Earth Triad Shades, Tints and Tones

I'm still dyeing samples from the Candiotic Table.  This is the Shades-Tints-Tones sample set from the Earth Triad.  I finally got the labels affixed.

 In the Candiotic Table below, you see the Earth and Sky Triads I dyed earlier this spring/summer.  Earth is lower right; Sky is upper left.  I took the pure hues from the darker Earth set and parsed them out into Shades-Tints and Tones.  
Quite a difference between them and an exercise worth doing.

Some of the pure hues were so dark, I didn't have much hope for them being anything but dark dark dark.  But this exercise really lightened them up (for the most part) and really showed off some of their personalities!

I am finished my tints, shades and tones of all 29 of my colors, plus the pyramids...yikes! Not sure if you are taking Candy's "Dyeing 102: Texture on Fabric" or not, but it is OUTSTANDING. BTW, I never tire of looking at your quilt of Oliver. So lovely.
