Colorful All Saints Day…

The day after Halloween, also known as “The Day of the Dead” celebration in Mexico and All Saints Day- moves away from the black and orange of Halloween to the bright vibrant hues of food color tinted sugar sculls …ColourLovers  has an interesting post on the history of the color pink, complete with a time line.

Hint: to mix this bright supra-saturated color using polymer clay…start with four parts magenta or fuchsia, one part white and five parts neon/fluorescent  pink.

On a semi-related topic…the color of the end of daylight savings time (to me at least) a dull, insipid grey= 3 parts white, two parts zinc yellow, one part fuchsia, one part cadmium red, two parts cobalt blue…and a looking forward to the celebration of the spring equinox and the earth pastel colors of spring … don’t forget to turn your clocks back!
