Mixing Colors - Part Three: CORAL

For Part Three of my amazing color mixing series, I give you Coral!

Mmm, don't those multi-layered globs of paint look yummy? I mixed this color using (roughly) equal parts of Permanent Rose (Winsor & Newton) with "Bittersweet Orange" and "Pretty Pink" (Ceramcoat brand craft paints).

I think I forgot to mention this in my previous posts - each piece needs to be painted with two coats before the design goes on.

After painting the design:

And that's pretty much the story of the coral bowl (which I am calling Coral Reef - you can find it in my Etsy shop here).
