Rules for Mixing and Blending Colors

1} White can be mixed with any color.

2) Except for white, leave the purple alone.

3) Ked, orange anil yellow can be intermixed and blended.

4) Browns mix well with orange, red, yellow and white

5) Make grey by mixing whit* with black or by adding distilled water to black.

Spectacular effects can be achieved by blending the colors in the skin letting one color flow into the nest This is a rainbow effect, and the ranges of color In a rainbow make a good guideline to remember the blending scheme.

Purule__

Red_

Rainbow colors orange

Yellow_

Green__

Blue

Any color can be blended with the color next to it on the rainbow Different color values of the same color can be blended also. In between the two colors will be a zone with the two colors being mixed together. This is where the two colon meet and blend. For example, let's color in a leaf. The outline for the leaf is done and it has black shading by the stem. The darkest color is done [the black and black shading) and now some green must be added. It will go from black shading by the stem to a dark green, fading to a light green, and then a little vellow on the very edge- It's all right to color over shading as the black shading will show through. Wash out the machine and needles very good (prescribed elsewhere) and tattoo in the dark green around the shading, right over the shading and feather it ou: toward the edge. Leave space for the other green Wash out the machine and tattoo in the light green. Color in slightly over the dark green and color in the leaf almost to the edges, maybe slightly feathering iL out on the edge. Wash out the machine and add in yellow or white, mixing it in wiih light green Wipe with green soap spray and coat with Vaseline every color change. A super color blend is achieved Shis way and must be practiced It's best to do this blending in one sitting while the ink is still "wet" in the skin and the ink mixes a lot better this way.

White is the last color you put in a tattoo. White pigment is lighter than human skin and it won't stay pure white for long It's a fickle color and it is highly subjective to the sun. tanning and turning a skin tone. Cue it sparingly by itself It is particularly good though for lightening other colors. It looks good in eyeballs Some pretty results can be obtained by tatlooing an area white, wait unlil it's entirely healed, and then put a tattoo over it in the regular fashion. It is also possible to do a more subtle work like using a dry shader, willi no color in it (put a very light coat or Vaseline on the needles) and a very light coat of dry. powdered red (or other color) across the skin and then sweep across it with your shader for a pretty blush.

After having finished a tattoo, it should be washed off with green soap and sprayed with an alcohol solution. It would now be a good time to take a few photos for the portfolio and then carefully bandage Ihe tattoo up. They look great when just finished. All glossy and sharp. Tattoo's look their best when just finished and it's a great time to photograph them, at their peak condition Before Dking a photo, be sure to blot the tattoo perfectly dry and don't have any Vaseline on it or the results will he a poor photo.
