When I was working on it, I discovered that by using a palette knife I could mix up colors as though they were paints and really get the color I want in small amounts. That is how I got that interesting purple color in the stems. I just mixed fuchsia, cobalt and a bit of zinc yellow.
I am thinking that you could actually paint that way with the clay. Maybe later. Right now I am enjoying these heat set paints. if you haven't tried them you should. Karen at Clay Alley sells small sampler packs and they seem to last a good long while.
I am trying to limit my computer time so back to work.
