Jewels by Crystin -- A paint collection by Crystin Min
We asked her why she picked these colors. And here is what she said:
I am a furniture artist who is passionate about design and color is an important component of that. Over the years, I have used over a hundred paint colors from various brands. I saw the need for certain shades that weren’t quite the perfect color I needed.
A slight depth whether lighter or darker, a cold tone or warm tone, colors blended together, the tiny difference makes a huge impact. I also experience various qualities in paints which gave me the idea of what would be versatile and easy for a beginner to use. I love jewel tones because they have a rich depth.
Beautiful Charoite: A rare gemstone, it is a dark aubergine. I like to blend it with lighter colors in order to create a mysterious and
Cleopatra’s Pride: Who isn’t familiar with Cleopatra? Famous for her beauty she wore green eyeshadow made of malachite. Royal and regal is this shade of green.
Falling in Love: How does one describe the feeling of descending into adoration? Falling in love for the first time can be passionate but I think the innocence of it to be pure and true. This is why it is a delicate color that is light and gentle.
Love and Romance: It is a brighter purple that makes me feel alive. It has a royal, luxurious aspect which draws enthralls.
Mermaid’s Tale: I chose teal because of the blend of blue and green tones to create a deep shade of teal that is less bright than other teals and more rich in tone.
Paraiba’s Tale: Blue is such a calming and spiritual color. I chose a shade that is lively and yet calm. It is what I feel when I am peaceful
Pink Malaya: I love femininity. To me it is a gentle and delicate sort of character which I find to be beautiful in a lovely way. This shade of pink is a bit dusky for a mature love.
