Jennifer Parker Botanicals Palette from Superstar I’m so excited to introduce this new Superstar Palette, which I designed to complement my Botanicals Face and Body Painting Class. I selected these colours to paint the range of flowers and foliage that I teach, from Poppies and Daisies to Chrysanthemums and Foxgloves. I've chosen a few shimmers, which I find useful for bases and also for highlighting, as they blend beautifully with the flat colours underneath. Some are colder and work well for wintery scenes, while others are warmer and lovely for hazy summer florals and autumnal designs. The White Shimmer (140) is one of my favourites from the Superstar range, I had to include it as it’s so versatile, and has become an essential part of my kit. I've also included some darker colours which are great for shading and offer a more natural appearance than shading with black. I make a point of discussing this in the Botanicals class, as true black is so rarely seen in nature, and with a basic understanding of the colour wheel, we can produce the darkest shades simply by choosing the correct colour. Try mixing the Ronnie Red (128) with the Dark Green (241) to see what can be achieved with colour. I left out a true Orange because the Bright Yellow (144) produces various shades of orange from coral to tangerine when mixed with Fuchsia (101), Baby Pink (062) and of course Ronnie Red (128). There are three greens that work together perfectly, and really allow you to bring your leaves and foliage to life. For quick work, I tend to paint with Olive Green (042), highlight with Lime (110) and shade with Dark Green (241), but you can mix with just about all of the other colours in the palette for an endless array of new greens, to make them zestier, earthier, or more delicate. It’s well worth having a play with mixing colours; Superstar paints blend so easily, I especially love to find new ways of using the shimmers and flats together, I’m sure you’ll come up with your own favourites! I love this little palette, and hope you will too.
