As an experiment, I cropped and combined the image to get a better look at the possibilities. Eventually, I went to the MexicanTiles.com website and was pleasantly surprised to see the tile already placed together in several configurations, much like the ones I made myself. (See Figures 2 and 3 below).
I imagine a border around the basic tile before it is combined to emphasize one of the colors in the "eye." My next step was a trip to Sherwin Williams to use the ChipIt! tool. Here is the palette I created:
Since I am not the smartest cookie in the color-mixing jar, I will refer to my color recipe ebooks from Crafts By Chris.
With the vast number of color recipes available in Chris's collection, there is sure to be a match for each of the colors in my palette.
At some point soon, I will mix up a batch of each color and attempt to construct a cane and turn it into a cane sheet.
