Mixing Celedon and a GIVEAWAY

[It has been pointed out to me that I have misspelled CELADON.  Whoops!  Very bad manners.  I won't change it in the post or video; just humor me and my misspelling.  (Thanks, Lucie).]

I get asked about this color pretty frequently.  Celedon.  It's a color from Blick Matte Acrylics, and it is only available in 2 oz bottles.  I typically put four to six bottles of it in each Blick order.  I recommend you do the same, so that they might consider offering it in the 8 oz size.  However, you can mix your own, and get some variation and nuance to your taste:




This is the "piece" I made with the leftovers.
This piece obviously relies heavily on this celedon range of color.  This is an example in my Balancing Opposites composition course: balancing large areas with small elements.
This is the GIVEAWAY!!!
I am offering a giveaway that includes:
  • 8 oz bottle of Black
  • 8 oz bottle of White
  • 2 oz bottle of Celedon
  • 1 oz (I think) of Golden Open Hansa Yellow.  (The Open acrylics take longer to dry, but mixed with other colors they just extend the working time a bit).
To enter the drawing, just comment on this post, and identify yourself.  I will post a winner on Wedneesday, February 18, and it is the winner's responsibility to contact me with a mailing address.  Good luck!  And have fun mixing your own celedon and other beautiful neutrals.

I live in Connecticut and would love to someday take one of your passes or more than one if I'm able. I hope to meet you someday soon. Thank you, Jennifer Johnson.

  26. Can I ask a question though? Those acrylic paints you get from Blick Matte Acrylics, are they more like good quality of craft paint in fluid form? I wonder if I can get something similar in the UK ... quality and price wise ... (Golden is sooooooooo much more expensive here). Thank you ,Jane.

  29. Just love to watch your expert hand mixing color. I am so inspired, even though I've seen you in person (Omega), especially when I feel stuck in my collage-making. I love the Celedon, both purchased and home-made. I love it when you blend in your unused paints and use that as your background for something new. I especially love the bottom picture with the bits of newsprint. Thanks so much for these postings.

  37. I adore that color, and I think I like the options using white, black and various yellows even better. The only thing I don't like about those Blick matte acrylics is that the 4 oz. plastic bottle is almost impossible to squeeze. It is exceptionally difficult for old hands like mine. Otherwise I like those paints.

  47. I fell in love with Celadon last summer after trying it out in a series of deli paper prints inspired by your online demo. As Connie R. said, the bottle is impossible to squeeze. My own formula for the color is: 2 Tablespoons Titan Buff, 1/2 tsp Sap Green, 1/4 tsp raw umber (Golden liquid paints). I like my invention as a starting point but it doesn't have the matte finish nor is it quite so opaque as the Blick product. Guess I'll have to switch with the opaque matte white or gesso if I want to get the opaque look. For storage, I have purchased empty 1 oz. bottles directly from Golden and they are far more squeezable. As you show here, the fun comes with the close variants. God is in the details! And speaking of details, Agnes' plumage is glorious. So glad to see her strutting her stuff again! Hope you and she haven't been too snowed under in all those blizzards that have been slamming Vermont!

  163. We'll forgive you the misspelling of your second favorite color - of course quin gold is first. Great video and info about variations on the theme of celadon.

  164. Hi Jane: I just found out on the Encausticos website that Hansa yellows are not suitable for encaustic as they degrade at 150 degrees. Who knew, but I thought you might like to know as you sometimes do encaustic -which by the way I would love to see more of your process with that -how you incorporate all your wonderful techniques in that medium.
    Cheers
