Color tests and weekend homework

The bootup chimes of my computer were music to my ears when power was restored this evening. I’ll assign you some weekend homework to keep you busy as I catch up.

Did you see the color test in the left colum? It looks easy and it’s great eye training. I’m already getting messages from readers about how it’s harder than it looks. I thought I’d ace it. I didn’t.

In response to your questions, the book in which Laura Timmins has found her recipes for financial success is Crafting as a Business by Wendy Rosen. Laura admits that following the formulas is a tedious process but well worth the effort.

Interested in metalwork or other online classes as mentioned in yesterday’s post? Connie Fox invites you to also visit her site, Jatayu, which offers an array of online metalworking classes.

The weather is spectacular. I can finally do laundry, plug in the pasta machine motor and get online! Should be a great weekend.

    Ahem. Sorry, I got carried away.

    I guess I’m going to have to try out that color test… but not before I finish my coffee…

    Connie Fox’s site is wonderful! She not only has some wonderful educational info there, but she also sells some terrific supplies. I try my best to buy from her a few times a year. Her prices are reasonable (sometimes way cheaper than Rio Grande) and have passed the “Connie test”, which means they are all of the utmost quality (the tools) and beauty (tdf lampwork beaads).

      I learned the basics at Connie’s site years ago. Great!!
      And I agree about her supplies. I have purchased from her and the quality and price are excellent!

        Wendy Rosen’s book is excellent. When you go to a Rosen show can see how high the expectations are. Go if you can. You will not be dissapointed. Here is a link:

          The test says “You have perfect color vision!”. I like that. *lol

          • reply Kristen Hermanny ,

            This is the test that all printers and ink mixers have to take before getting a job in the printing industry. Except when it is taken for work, there are black circles around each color and it comes in a case and looks like you are going to play backgammon. The computer version is easier, but close to the test for printing.

              I have Wendy’s “Crafting as a Business” 1994. If will be interesting to see how much business has changed…

                Either I am not sure of what to do with the color test or I am going blind? I have great color ability with my painting and polymer clay but i only got a 66 on the test, Bummer. Dyan

                  Skinner Blends!!!

                  Got a 4 (I presume that’s 4 wrong out of all the options?) So pretty good, considering my crappy vision and my questionable monitor.

                  A tip for those having trouble. Move the tile where you think it goes and compare to the ones on either side — is it ‘bluer’ (or whatever than it should be? Does it fit better one over to the right?

                  Kind of fun!

                    Great test, I scored ‘dead average’ for my age/gender…….I thought I’d do better, especially since I make so many Skinner blends! My laptop monitor isn’t the best, so I think I’ll retry the test on the desktop PC, the monitor is much better quality….

                      My monitor is a reflective one and to be honest, I didn’t think I’d do as well as I did. I’d love to try it on a calibrated lacie. 😉 Neat test.

                              How well you do on that color test is also a function of how good your computer monitor is. 🙂
