Tips for choosing your own colors

Esther said that she has made these mandalas in 3 color combinations, but there are more than 100 colors in the Scheepjes Catona range. This means there are many colorways that you can make these mandalas in. I have a few tips for you when choosing which colors to use.

First choose the main color you want your mandala to be, this is Color D in the pattern. For example, in the Forest Fern colorway this is a green color. This color will be used for all the outer edges of the mandala, hence it’s the color that is most visible.

Next choose a neutral shade that matches your first color, this is Color E in the pattern and is used to attach the mandalas to the rings. Good colors to use here are shades of whites and light grey.

Now choose two accent colors, these are Colors B and C in the mandala. These colors are used to make the flower petals in the center, and they should complement color D.

Lastly, choose two colors to match all the colors what you already have. These are Colors A and F in the pattern. Usually lighter or darker shades of what you have already selected works well. If you want to make all three mandalas in only one color, you will need 4 balls of Scheepjes Catona 50g.

You can go to Scheepjes Catona product page and order your own Colourway.
