I had so much fun in the dye studio last week. Sometimes I meticulously plan what I'm going to dye, sometimes I wing it and sometimes I have a little plan. These 2 new gradients are the result of a little plan. It carries a lot of risk with gradients because they generally require a meticulous plan. Last week I lucked out.
At least, I think I did because I love both of these new gradients.
Can you tell that I was thinking about the beach with this one? This one reminds me of the lighting at the very end of the day when everything looks a little faded. You are out for your last beach walk of the day and you are enjoying the vista of seafoam, seashells and driftwood on the sand.
Reds and oranges are my favorite colors and it's been a while since I designed a gradient for myself. Coral Atoll is for me and hopefully someone else will like it too! I can't wait to design a project to use with this one. The color is definitely coral. Not red and not orange but something beautifully in between.
There's even a new Shades Pack, Coral, to coordinate with the gradient or to use separately in your project. In the swatch photo you can see how Coral falls between the oranges and the reds.
What would you do with these new gradients?

The new gradients are beautiful! I like the soft colors in Sunwash. I have never seen you do such a light colored gradient before so I think this will be a big hit. The Coral Stoll - I like the contrast between the strong coral and the soft beige. The darker blended bits between the two really bring these colors together. I hope you dyed a lot because they are going to go like hotcakes!
