Tips & Techniques Tuesday: Making a Color Chart


Hello, fellow Stickles-lovers! :) Welcome to our tip/technique/tutorial Tuesday!

It's Melanie today and I'm going to show you a good way to make a Stickles color chart.  First, print off the one provided by Ranger Ink site. 


  If you can;t get them to open, print out multiples of the one that works.  Then label WHAT type of Stickles they are going to be.  If it's not the original set, you may want to white-out some of the existing names.


Next, write in the names of the color set for the chart you are making.


Apply the Stickles to the chart.  This is a good time to test new bottles.


When you are done, you will have a chart of all the Stickles colors you own and those you don't yet.  


This is a really good tool to decide which colors coordinate best for your project.  It also shows the color when it's dry, which is sometimes different than how it looks in the bottle.
 
 
*Note - Ranger has charts for all types of Stickles (Regular, Ditress, & Ice).  But it may difficult to open the file or you may receive an error message when trying to do.  If you would like a copy, please send us a message at allthatstickles@gmail.com

  1. Great idea. I do this for my Spectrum Noir markers but did not know Stickles had a chart.
    Guess what I'll be doing today.
