50 Shades of Greige by Toni

Hi everyone, Toni here with a new canvas. Now “greige is all the rage” and if your not sure what that is it’s a combination of the warm tones of gray with the cool tones of beige….. hence “greige”. It’s muted tones are easy on the eyes provide a sense of tranquility and peacefulness. Coupled with black or walnuts provide a wonderful cozy organic feel. 

Using only a few different products and mixing them either with whites to highlight or black to deepen allowed me to get several different shades of “greige”. Some of the canvas I would like to refer to as a happy accident. 

Art Anthology’s Stone Effect Sandstone really provided that pretty beige tone as well as texture to the project, and the Sorbet in Black Leather Jacket and Linen helped to tone down and deepen my Metal Effects Silver here and there on the canvas.

I believe the addition of the black cardboard and walnut chipboard provided a richness and gave it a more masculine feel. 

I hope I have inspired to become a chemist in your craftroom, start mixing those colors and see what you come up with. You never know you may discover the next color trending on Instagram and Pinterest. Happy creating !!!
