Amethyst is another popular choice for bead artists because it comes in many colors, including purple, lavender, mauve, and gray-green hues. In addition, the gem is prevalent in shades of pink, peach, and rose gold tones that can work well with most designs (unless you’re going for a very modern look). It’s also an excellent choice for creating designs that incorporate flowers and vines because of its natural earthy feel.
How to Ensure Your Gemstone Coloring Comes Out Clear
It’s easy to get carried away with the mesmerizing beauty of the gems and shift your focus from their details. So here are some tips on how to ensure your gemstone coloring comes out clear:
· Check for the contrast between your chosen colors and the base color of your project.
· Ensure enough contrast between the base color and the line art so that it is easy to see where to to color.
· If possible, use hard-edged markers instead of blending pencils or crayons when coloring line art because they will show up more clearly on the page.
With these guidelines, creating the most intricate gemstone is not daunting. Ideally, the catch lies in creating ultra-crisp lines. Always ensure you use markers with fine tips and opaque ink when creating the frames, and anything else will be a breeze to execute.
