Ok! I have tried to mix colors for the first time so bear with me! I think, though, with a little bit more mixing, I have a canteloupe!
I used all Effetre (Moretti): butter yellow (418), transparent orange and swipe of white in the mix.
The not-quite-fully-mixed color combinations have their own charm that I like very much - however, they need to be mixed a bit more to get a whole bead of canteloupe.
I enjoyed trying to do this! Thanks, Patti for suggesting it! :-)
