Here's something a little different from Kim+Kat Glass.

We're a couple of old dogs trying new tricks with glass. For the first time, the content presented will not rely upon video lessons, but instead will provide a comprehensive PDF reference e-book for your studio. There is so much to look at here! We have found our newest passion in powders. And we have cooked up numerous color tiles with blends and dilutions to help you imagine your projects with a much larger color palette of Bullseye powders than you currently have on hand. If you're an artist whose childhood heart went pitter-patter at the thought of a new box of 64 Crayola Crayons, you are in for a treat.

Not all heroes wear capes. Some wear Band-aids.

__A.G., glass artist

More than 1,400 unique color combinations

Using most of the powders in the Bullseye catalog, we have made dilutions with white, so you can see a color become lighter. We've blended with Deco Gray, in order to provide a softer and more muted palette. And we've played around with Neo Lavender, just for the heck of it.

But our favorite new hues come from seemingly random, interesting blends that provide some truly breathtaking colors. Spring Green blended with Light Turquoise? Be still, my heart. Salmon Pink with Neo Lavender? Wow. And just for fun, we took a stab at creating some blends to approximate some BE colors that are not presently offered as powders. Do you wish you could buy Robin's Egg or Peacock in a powder? We have the recipes for those.

Our blends are made with two colors, and most of them follow this 25% increment method. And there are a couple of quick how-to videos to show you how we made our combinations, just to make it super-simple for you to recreate these blends — and discover new ones — on your own.

Your new go-to ebook: a 100-page PDF document with 1,400 unique color blends

Our beautifully designed PDF will become an essential reference book for your studio. It would take a lifetime to whip up all possible blends from all available powders, so we have carefully curated well over a thousand two-color sequences that we found to be useful and interesting. So feel free to use this e-book as a reliable jumping-off point to explore blends that suit your particular creative needs.

Color, color and more color

This is a very small sampling of our blends, just to give you a tiny taste of what's possible when you fade from one color to another. While this color cookbook is not an exhaustive library of all conceivable color pairs, we have tried to give you as many blends as we reasonably could, with the aim of getting you started in your own color mixing experiments. You'll be baking custom color combinations in no time!

If you cook up a new recipe and would like to share, we have a private FB group for artists who wish to connect over their common obsession with BE glass and color.

This is our favorite chapter. We made some wild and crazy combinations to find out how far we could truly stretch the powder palette.

Chapter 7: Bullseye Color Approximations

There are a small number of sheet glasses that are not available in powders, so we took a run at getting close to a few of them. We are loving the Robin's Egg Blue mixture we discovered.
