One of the best things about being a professional craft designer is that I get to work with the latest products my clients release. I'm currently on the design team for Faber Castell's Design Memory Craft blog and just a received a package of new product! One of which is their new Iridescent Gelatos! These are super- shiny colors that reflect light.
In celebration of my new craft supplies, I thought I would share my process of working with new products for my business. When I get new colors (in whatever medium) I typically make myself a palette that shows how the colors look out of the package and in use. This really helps me when I'm brainstorming projects or even just want to paint something in my sketchbook. Since I was breaking in my new set of Gelatos, I thought I would make a video of my process in case you wanted to see what a day in my studio looks like when new products arrive. It's in three parts. I hope you enjoy it!
