ADOPTED

OOAK 12
Babies by Glo

I present you with "Travis" This little one can be a boy or a girl, as you wish. Travis was born on May 5, 2008, he's 12" and weighs around 1 pound.
Travis was made with a great imagination and God's help. Travis has 3/4 limbs and a mohair wig. I left the hair a little long so that mom can cut it or style it. Travis is filled with glass pellets and polyfill, so he can travel anywhere in the world.
Travis will come home to mommy with his t-shirt and diaper, his booties, outfit and hat and a butterfly paci I made specially for him. It is not magnetic.
Travis' will be calculated on distance and weight for the 50 US States.
International will be calculated on distance and weight as well. If you are interested on adopting this baby, please contact me at glo@babiesbyglo.com

Mixing Colors

Color Mixing
Color mixing for me has always been like a recipe: If you mix yellow and blue, you get green. In part, that's what it is, but it gets a little bit complicated at times and then advantageous at others, because you can create your very own OOAK colors!
I'll start with the "Primary Colors" that are basically where all the other colors come from. The three primary colors are: Red, Blue, and Yellow. In theory, we can create any other color, plus black and white, from the three primary colors, but these,can never be created from any toher color
The secondary colors are: Orange, Green, and Purple. These are created by mixing any two primary colors together; For instance: Yellow and blue makes green, red and yellow make orange and red and blue make purple. Now, depending on the mix you make, you'll get either a truer color or not, because these colors cannot always be mixed 1 to 1.
Tertiary Colors are created by mixing the secondary colors together. Results are often browns, rusts, and muds.
Tints result when any hue is mixed with white. The more white added, the lighter the hue becomes.
Tones result when any hue is mixed with gray. Mixing gray into a hue results in a more muted color than the original hue.
Shades result when any hue is mixed with black. Even tiny amounts of black added to most hues result in a deeper, darker hue than the original. Add more than a pinch, and you won’t be able to tell your new “color” from black!
Color Palettes are comprised of a selection of red, blue, and yellow hues from which you mix secondary, tertiary, tint, tone and shade hues from. For example, you can use “pure” red, blue and yellow, or fuchsia, turquoise, and yellow, or even florescent pink, florescent blue and florescent yellow as your primaries. The choice is yours. All of the colors mixed from the three primaries you choose will be unique from those mixed from a different starting color palette.
