It’s called ColorMixr, and it’s for polymer clay. I think you could use it for beads and fabrics and paints, and here are some color palettes I’ve created. These are all taken from photographs. Let me show you the geisha.I look for Asian images to use with kumihimo, and she was in my photo gallery. In the app, you have these options:I clicked on, “Image from gallery, and my photos opened. I chose the geisha and this is what the app did with it.It isolated five areas from the photo, and created a palette at the bottom. Three of the areas were black, and I didn’t need them, so I moved those spots to another colored area. You just touch them on the screen and drag them where you want.Now I could use these colors to choose cords for kumihimo, or fabrics for a quilt, or paints to recreate the image.
ColorMixer goes a step further and gives recipes for mixing polymer clay to get these colors. Then, I could sculpt her! The app has a grid you can download for measuring “parts.”
The next screen will allow you to save your palette and when it saves the palette, you can name it.It will also save your photo and the color recipes to your photo gallery on whatever device you are using. I am using iPhone.
What else the app can do, I have yet to discover, but I’m looking forward to it!
The app was developed by Nancy Urlich, and at this writing, is free! Find it in whichever app store you use. Look for, “ColorMixr,” and have fun!
Candie Cooper shared a demo from FlatLand Artistry at the Dallas Pinners Conference just a little while ago. It was so interesting and inspiring, I had to save a link. I can’t seem to share it here, but look it up on Candie Cooper’s facebook page, under videos, Sept. 13, 2019. Here’s a screenshot:
on my quilt square jewelry, but getting a lot done! I found some pendant trays that are square, so a few of my “quilt square” necklaces will actually be square!
Luckily, many of the Quilt Square Girls’ designs have elements that are round!
I am really happy with these. I hope the Quilt Square Girls will be. I’m anxious to order more blanks!
Somebody remind me!
I will piddle and fiddle and nip at something till I eventually ruin it. I have done enough to this little chakra bar pendant. The chain can wait till tomorrow. I’m walking away!
Well, maybe just turn it over so the beads are in the right order!
Vivi had tried her hand at weaving potholders at school, but really got the hang if it when I told her to alternate colors!
Here’re my latest frames from JTV. I am very pleased! I’ll have to pack them up for now, but someday…
