Hair color wheel


Hello! For this post, I had to share this information with you. Two years ago, while I was making a wig for one of my dolls, I was tired of wasting time and money looking for a proper hair color. That’s when the idea came to me of buying a chromatic color wheel. This wheel, like all color wheels, is intended to clearly illustrate how the colors are related to one and other. When the colors are face to face on the color wheel, they become complementary. Complementary colors, placed side by side intensify the appearance of these two colors, but when two complementary colors are combined in a proper proportion (as when applying color to the color correction), they are neutralized. This tool is awesome and I can’t live without it: I use it religiously. The colors are maybe not accurate, but I can live with that!

Allo! Pour ce post, je devais partager cette information avec vous. Il y a deux ans, alors que je fabriquais une perruque pour l’une de mes poupées, j’en étais fatiguée de perdre temps et argent à la recherche d’une couleur de cheveux appropriée. C’est alors qu’il m’est venu l’idée d’acheter une roue de couleurs chromatiques. Cette roue, comme toutes roues chromatiques, vise à illustrer clairement la façon dont les couleurs se rapportent l’une à l’autre. Lorsque les couleurs sont en face à face sur la roue chromatique, elles deviennent complémentaires. Les couleurs complémentaires placées côte à côte intensifient l’apparence de ces deux couleurs, mais quand deux couleurs complémentaires sont combinées dans la proportion appropriée (comme lors de l’application de coloration pour la correction des couleurs), elles se neutralisent. Cet outil est génial et je ne peux m’en passer : je l’utilise de manière religieuse! Les couleurs ne sont peut-être pas exactes, mais je peux vivre avec ça!

    1. Hello! Congratulations on your journey on making BJD! I started more than five years ago with polymer clay, which I still do. My first dolls were static ones. My main goal at the time, was to find the perfect polymer clay in the market, but it changed over the years, with practice and experience. Since my dolls are tall, an average of 50 cm (21 inches), polymer clay for static dolls (entirely sculpted with polymer clay on top of a wire armature) was not a good idea: there was some cracks due to the heavy weight of the clay once fired and cool down. So I switched, for BJD in polymer clay, which works great! There are many great books and DVD’s in the market and the ones, that I used to start with, are: Yoshida Style Ball Jointed Doll Making Guide (Japanese Book)available on AMAZON & for making BJD in polymer clay and I think you will like this one!
      Hope I was helpful!

      Best regards
