Wet Canvas & Lampwork Etc. Color Mixing Chart 1


Unless otherwise specified, all colors are Moretti/Effetre. 104 COE.

Please note that due to variations in monitors, settings, and color batches
from the factory, your results may vary from those seen here.

Solid Mixes     Layers     Enamels

I'm quite often asked what the numbers that follow the 'x' mean. They're how you measure out the mix. You pick the units of measure (oz, gm, in, cm, mm) and then add the number to it. For example: in the first mix pictured and if the units of measure are oz, it would be 1 oz 456 Rubino, 6 oz 068 Pink, and 2 oz 016 Dark Topaz.

Misc. Notes - Depending on the degree of translucency you want, you may have to add more clear/white till you get the results you want.

To turn a transparent color into a translucent one, mix transparent with an equal amount of 204 White.. 060 Cobalt Blue mixed this way gives you . Created by Kitty
To turn an opaque color into a translucent one, mix with an equal amount of 004 Clear. I mixed 1 part 436 Dark Red with 2 parts 004 Clear to get . Created by Kitty
If you want to make a color pastel try mixing it with 268 Pearl Gray. Lori Robbins
