Understanding contrast and value is very important in making blends. Sometimes you will want a dark to light blend that goes almost to white. Sometimes, you will want subtle, rich color blends that go from light to dark without losing intensity. These canes from my Picture Cane Tutorial use the more subtle blends like the Leaf blend and Ocean blue blend.
The subtle blends are basic with only two colors. So far, the only way I’ve learned to make glowing blends is to use at least three colors. Because these are a little more involved I’ve made printable stencils for the Sapphire Blue and Glowing green. Glowing color blends
This is Premo brand Ultramarine, Turquoise and White
To make an Ocean blue blend (the block on the left), just make a basic blend from Ultramarine and Turquoise.
Here you can see the difference in value.
