Coy Koi

A playful blend of warm and cool tones. The blend includes an orange strike color (coy), so you can decide how many koi you’d like to see.

Amy’s Notes: While this blend probably is not the most versatile of the Painter’s Series in terms of the number of different ways it can be used, it is actually one of my favorites. And don’t get me wrong – it works very well with many base colours, and produces some interesting reactions as well. It encased well with Lauscha clear, and the reaction it produces with silver foil is really cool.

And finally, here are my paddle tests of this blend. It doesn’t demonstrate the 104 palette in full by any means, but gives a pretty good idea of how the blend reacts with a variety of colours.
