Vellum is one that will shock you, especially if you’re not expecting what color it truly is. When I first got it, it appeared to be just another highlighter shade as it’s white in the pan and doesn’t look any different than Gesso. So I tossed it aside and on a whim one day tried using it as a blending shade in a look. Needless to say I completely ruined the look! What you get in Vellum is a blue, pink and purple duochrome color, depending on what you pair it with. I love how easily it melts into combos using these colors and it’s such an easy, buttery finish to work with. The color itself reminds me A LOT of Crystal, not so much in a side by side comparison but moreso in the looks themselves; you’ll get the same effect. So if you don’t have Vellum but want to recreate some of these combos, try using Crystal in its place. And likewise, if you need more combination ideas, check the Crystal post for more inspiration. This duochrome quality can make it hard to pair with other colors, but if you think along the lines of its hidden colors, you’re sure to discover some great combos, so just think pink, purple and blue!
