I wanted to tie The Three Amigos in three different colors and I wanted the colors to have a nice blend. Here is a step by step turorial. I hope it all makes sens. Sometimes I get rather nerdie when It gets to flytying, but I know I am not the only one and some of you will love this.
I can`t say how much I like sitting down for hours and hours and just fiddling with mixing diffrent colors. I do think the colors turned out great. The beads I use is a 3.4 mm tungsten bead and tied on a smal size 6 hook and I use kevlar thread. Let me take you thru the steps. Enjoy. PS. - It`s all just seal-fur.
Overview colors step 1.
Here you can se all the colors I have been using to make "The Three Amigos" basecolors. Ginger Ale, Fiery Brown, Magenta, Drak Olive, Black and Pruple.
Color No. 3, No. 2 and No. 1 is basecolors for the next step.
No. 3 = 20% Ginger Ale. 60% Fiery Brown. 20% Magenta.
No. 2 = 20% Magenta. 80% Dark Olive.
No. 1 = 20% Dark olive. 60% Black. 20% Purple.
here is the finished color for Amigo No 1.

Here you se the three basecolors in the top (No 3, No 2 and No 1.) and the finished colors in the buttom (No 1, No 2 and No 3.)
