New Colors!

The new kits colors are in the Etsy shop now!  I've got seven new colors and I think in the future I'll be able to get some lighter and darker variations of some of these new colors.

First, we have two new bright colors, Brilliant Blue and 80's Fuchsia. 

Yes, the fuchsia is just that bright, but either color will look great paired with the Just Black kit:

Next we have what was called Straw, but it looks more like Golden Vanilla to me.  Besides, Golden Vanilla sounds nicer than Straw.  As you can see, this color is lovely by itself or combined with Wedgewood Blue, Herb Green (HG has a slight blue tinge, too, makes for an interesting color) or Desert Rose.

BTW, the Wedgewood Blue kit has wider elastics for the bottom elastic (5/8" instead of 1/2") and for the straps (3/4" instead of 1/2"), plus the larger rings and sliders.

I've also dyed up a color I'm going to call Shell Pink.  This dye is actually labeled French Vanilla, but came out this pretty pale pink color.  This is actually the color I thought I was going to get with Lobster Bisque, so I'm glad I finally have a dye for this color.  As you can see it would combine well with either the Herb Green or the Desert Rose kits.  You can see that blue tinge to the Herb Green better in this photo.

This month sometime I plan to do some hand painted kits.  I've always wanted to try that, and I think it might make for some interesting final products.
