Video: Color Combinations with Dylusions Ink Sprays

Color Combinations with DylusionsWelcome to Part 2 of my Dylusions art journal series. Before I finally start using her products, I wanted to share one more information with you. And that is which colors work well together.

I guess there are several color combinations with Dylusions ink sprays, but this combination is the “easiest” for me to work with. I (and Dyan Reaveley confirmed it during the class) sort colors for cold and warm tones. This way I don’t need to worry about brown or muddy colors when they accidentally mix together (which they will…) πŸ™‚

Cool Colors

In general, cool colors are the blues and greens of this world. During the class I learned that very bright yellows count as cools as well. For the Dylusions sprays that means (in no particular order):

  1. Lemon Zest
  2. After Midnight
  3. Poisoned Jade
  4. Calipso Teal
  5. London Blue
  6. Dirty Martini
  7. Fresh Lime
  8. Chopped Pesto
  9. Vibrant Turquoise
  10. Cut Grass

Warm Colors

Warm colors are all the reds, oranges, and pinks. For the Dylusions sprays that means (in no particular order):

  1. Squeezed Orange
  2. Bubblegum Pink
  3. Melted Chocolate
  4. Ground Coffee
  5. Cherry Pie
  6. Tangerine Dream
  7. Funky Fuchsia
  8. Pomegranate Seed
  9. Pure Sunshine
  10. Postbox Red

Neutral Colors and Purple

Neutral colors in general are black and white and the tones in between, so grays. For the Dyslusions ink sprays these are the White Linen, Black Marble and Slate Gray.

Purple is a little tricky. It doesn’t really belong to the cools or the warms and mixes only with specific ones inside each color family. I would mix purple only with blues or pinks (explanation why is in the video), but you are more then welcome to try things on you own and mix purple with other colors. This is only for “wet” mediums like sprays. If you think about card making and what type of patterned paper to mix, purple and yellow look great together!

I explain all this and a little more in this video:

I’m preparing more videos and try to upload one per week. Let me know, if you have any questions or want to see something in more detail πŸ™‚
