So, I'm trying to do something large and fancy-- namely, this. However, it presents a problem. I can only seem to find one tone of grey, and this calls for a few. Ideas/suggestions/things I've completely missed?

There is a 'transparent black' that works with spot shading. Otherwise, I'm unaware of lighter shades that are readily visible.

Perler and Hama make different shades of grey-but they're really close to each other and practically the same. Only the most discernible of eyes will spot it.

I find with sprites that have many shades of grey, I can use different shades of a certain color instead. It sucks that neither Perler or Hama have thought to make multiple shades of grey but that just comes with working with the medium.

For example, I did some Ice Climbers Sprites.

The original sprites had shades of grey in the lining of their coats.

Here is what I did:



The picture is small, but you can see in the final Bead Sprite that I used shades of brown to compensate - along with the grey, I think it had a nice effect.

For one thing, darling, YOU'RE NOT SINGLE.

SWM indeed. Although it could always have meant "sexy..." >.>

Anyway. My order's being processed and should arrive sometime next week, so we'll have some idea of how well the new Hama silver works as a different shade of gray. It's so hard to tell from just the pictures, but I am hopeful.

Perler pearl functions well as a light gray.

Perler's clear glitter almost-kinda-sorta works as a very very light gray, but it does tend to look a bit weird. Regular clear just fails.
