Olive Me!

Sometime I have to take a break from filing orders, olives as and enhancement to another crafter's product, and try some thing new. Olive green, makes me think about jade, jade makes me think about sculptures, jade sculptures make me think about Buddha figure. So a diversion from olives to something new for me.

I find all greens are unnatual before the are mixed. This is the formula I like for olive green using fimo soft: green #50 + yellow #16 + brown #7. The green on the left is 1.2.1 and the darker one on the right is 1.1.1.

To get the jade for the little Buddha I have mixed the smallest amount of green with translucent. mixing several batches and bunching them gives the faux jade a more natural appearance.
