Purple Foxgloves Palette | Premo Recipes Vol-086-B

Purple Foxgloves Palette by Polymer Clay Tutor1-B: Chestnut
Purple Foxgloves
Plum Wine

After we filmed Taking A Moment Video last week, Doug shot some still photographs of the Foxgloves in our backyard as well. And when I saw this picture, all I could think of was taking the afternoon off… relaxing in the garden with a glass of wine.

While picking the colors, I decided to choose names for them that reflected not only the color itself, but also the thought of my picnic in the garden.

Now I have never actually had a chestnut with biscuits and Plum Wine… but if the name fits… sometimes you just have to go with it :)

I do hope you enjoy this inspiration for this next Vol-086-B Series color recipes for July 2015.

[wp_ad_camp_1]Chestnut is a rusty red brown, found on the stamens of these dangling foxglove blossoms. Biscuit is a nice tan brown, also found on the stamen stems. Purple Foxgloves is the vibrant purple which is the most dominant on this beautiful specimen in today’s photo. And Plum Wine is the gorgeous dark plum color found in the shadowy edges of the blooms as they dangle and sway in the breeze.

Cindy I too love Foxgloves, I cant wait for the first to show their beautiful heads in spring. Our wild variety are a light purplish and much nicer than the ones grown from seed. I always have to pick one vase full, although I don’t like to pick wild flowers. They look better in nature, but they are a cheer for anyone in spring. And so is this color palette. You have scored again Cindy and Doug. ~Ritzs

Very pretty colors. I have never seen a foxglove flower, they are pretty. The inside dots on the flower look like they came from an extruder cane!! I also like the stories you share with us. You always make my day. ~Jeanne-C

Quite the interesting palette! I love your stories, and this one about foxgloves is no exception. Seeing them blowing across the fields must’ve been a glorious sight! Your ‘very hardy’ breed is beautiful, and makes for a cool polymer clay palette. Thanks so much for the recipes, and for all of your inspiration (as always!) Cindy & Doug, you ROCK! ~Phaedrakat

Love the history and your stories with this one. I have always loved Foxgloves too. Now that I have a little more time I can look into their horticulture for this Spring. ~Pollyanna

    I am a new guest. How do I get the recipes for each of the colors in the free monthly recipes (this month’s Purple Foxgloves)?

    Welcome to the community Diane.

    For the complimentary B-recipes, currently you must download them to your computer when my email newsletters arrive in your inbox each Friday. The links expire after a couple of weeks, so you need to be diligent about grabbing them while they are available.
