Last week you worked through your inks, pens and markers. This week you’ll want to add your other coloring agents to your color catalog.
Follow the same process using the “Peel-a-Hue” color charts or print colors charts from the manufacturer website(s).
What you’ll need
This can be quite a messy process. Be prepared with the following items and it will help simplify the process.
-Peek-a-Hue Color Charts – download links below
– Paint Brushes
– Cup of Water – For cleaning paint brushes
– Quilting Pinks – for unclogging glitter glues
– Paper Towels and or Baby Wipes
– Double-sided tape – for glitter examples
– Pop Up Trash Can
– Label Stickers – Optional
– Fine Tipped pen or marker
– Storage Containers – ideas at the end of this handout Step 1 – how will you store your times?
Choose your storage containers-
Think easy access. Things you can keep on your workspace if you always craft at home, or things that are easy to bring to your worktable and put back quickly. If you’re “lite” on coloring items, it might be best for you to store your items together by color, rather than by type.
Step 2 – Gather, Sort, Label
– Gather all your products together
– Sort items by brand and product type
– Label each of them a number/name (note: most are already numbered/named by the manufacturer, use the manufacturer number/name to keep things easy.)
Step 3 – Create Color Catalog & Manufacturer Catalog (optional)
Group products by type (glitter glue, enamel drops, embellishment paste,) make color swatch samples, then enter the assigned number and or manufacturer name of each item next to the watch in your catalog pages. You may ant to create catalogs – one to keep in your Rainbow Section/catalog , and one that is manufacturer specific.
Step 4 – Store Products
Store cataloged products together by type in your chosen storage system.
Storing all color products together by color is an option for crafters who have less.
This week’s Checklist
– Decide on and, if needed , purchase the storage tools that work with the way you craft.
– Gather all your coloring agents together by type and brand.

Storage & Supply Cases
“Mix-n-math” the interior drawers to create the perfect drawer organization system for your supplies. The Storage and Supply case shown below was created by combining 2 Storage & Supply (1 Six Drawer SASC and 1 Two Drawer SASC. I used 1 drawer from the 2 drawer Storage & Supply Case and 3 drawers from the 6 Drawer Storage & Supply Case – the end result were 2 cases, each with 4 drawers – 1 of them is shown here loaded with red supplies.
Thank you for joining me on this 12 Week journey – I know you’ll be so glad you did!
