A12 Alchemy Black
This is Paula Nadelstern's newest all-over print design. Alchemy has 11 different colors, most multi-color, some more tonal in nature. |
The Alchemy design has a very organic feel to it. Hard to describe, almost looks as if you're looking through a microscope at something on a slide.
This is what Paula has to say about this design. "Alchemy looks like a left-over chemistry experiment gone wrong. It’s an all-over with a forgiving temperament that will look the same from any angle. Fabrics like this with a lot of color in a tiny area will energize a project. Put the fabrics on a design wall and step back to see whether they work the way you intended or not."
Alchemy Black is clearly a reads-like-a-solid fabric with a deep black background and a slightly lighter black to give it some visual texture. It is not flat looking at all. Paula adds "the really deep, rich tonal black is a paradox. That black, defined as the absence of color, is the one that lets the other colors display their true hue. Stockpile truly dark black patterns like this one that aren’t grayed or blotchy.
