Happy Tuesday my friends and welcome to the 7th day of 12 Days of Giveaways!! Crooked Brook has been incredibly generous giving away their products, but I thought it was time to supplement with a few of my other favorite things. Most of you know by now that I teach a series of Dusting classes. I think there are lots of great flower teachers out there, but most do not have time in class to really share the art of dusting. As I started to teach classes on dusting (and on painting), my students would always ask what colors they should buy. They wanted to take home the class set of colors.
I worked with The Sugar Art (www.thesugarart.com) to create the Beginning Dusting Kit. I now call it my Dusting Collection 1. It has the 25 perfect colors that let you start almost any project. I’ve had numerous people say that when they open their dusting drawer to pull out colors, 9 times out of 10 the first color they grab is from this collection. I believe in the value of this collection. I sell it on my web site (www.RuthRickey.com) for $80. Lately, these dusts have been retailing for about $4 per jar, making this a $100 value. I have always considered it an investment. The colors last an incredibly long time, so this may take you through several years of decorating. When you look at it that way, it seems even more like a great deal!
Here are the pretty colors in the set:
But seriously, that photo doesn’t even begin to do them justice. Here’s another shot with them grouped into color ranges.
