Pink Tequila comes from a pink sandstone, but the resulting paint or pigment color isn’t pink at all. Or at least, not very much. It’s closer to orange, but there is a slight pink tinge to the orange.

This one, like so many others have the past year, surprised me. As a stone, it looks quite pink.

But once I had it ground up and the pigment mounded on the mulling board, there wasn’t a grain of pink in sight.

The pigment doesn't look pink at all anymore.
What happened to the pink?? Once ground up this pink stone became a gorgeous hue of orange.

The Swatch

Since I only picked up that one small rock, I didn’t get much paint from it. I got enough to make several mini cubes. This one is in the new sets that I’ll have with me at the end of the month at the South x Southeast Art Tour.

The color is a few shades more orange than the yellow of Cromwell’s Sunrise, and it’s a gorgeous color. I named it the first thing that came to mind: Pink Tequila. And no. I don’t know if there is really such a thing as pink tequila. If there isn’t, I think there ought to be.

Pink Tequila – a warm shade of orange with just a hint of pink. From a pink sandstone, whole stone.

These will go on sale first at the South x Southeast Art Tour, where I’ll be set up with the Wild Ozark booth at Terra Studios. It’s March 30-31. After that, I’ll upload any of them left to my online shop and the Etsy shop.
