We played with the fawn base of A Stormy Blend PERLA hand painting it with soft and ethereal tones and speckles, just as in watercolor paintings where you can still see the paper underneath here and there.
Acquerelli in fact means watercolors in Italian, and we imagined the 6 shades of this collection taking shape in splashes of colour alternated to the natural undyed shade of the alpaca fibres that are the core of A Stormy Blend.
After the colors were done, they reminded us soo much of CORTO MALTESE, the iconic antihero main character of Hugo Pratt's graphic novels, that were often drawn in dreamy watercolored scenes.
So we came out easily with 6 tables, one for each of our shades:
Peachy tones - Occidente
Blue tones - Una ballata del mare salato
Pinky tones - Favola di Venezia
Violet tones - Avevo un appuntamento
Greenish tones - Le Celtiche
Yellow tones - Escondida
Acquerelli is a limited edition collection, and it's ready to ship!
