Millefiore Magic: Exploring Color Choices

Choosing the right colors for your canes is critical since their relationship changes as the cane is reduced. Can you predict how your colors will shift?

I will share some simple tips and tricks that will give you the information you need to avoid disappointing surprises and help you design and make beautiful canes.

Learn how to see color in a whole new light as you focus on value contrast – the magic key to making your designs work at a small scale.

Practice auditioning your colors by testing combinations and explore the creative process of moving colors around in a variety of placement options until the colors come alive.

Bring one or more magazine clippings in a color scheme that your are interested in exploring. At the end of the workshop you will have a color coordinated collection of simple leaf and flower canes to take home and use in future projects.
