Psyche: Summer Butterfly Collection

Since summer is coming up soon I figured I'd share the base color information for this collection. It is being named Psyche. Since the main reason for naming my company was based on butterflies, since both my grandmother and myself have a love for them, and for anything Greek related especially mythology. Wikipedia states (plus some other sites) "The Ancient Greek word for "butterfly" is ψυχή (psȳchē), which primarily means "soul", "mind"." So that's how I came up with Psyche Minerals.

Now on to the fun stuff! Here is a list of the colors that I'll be making for this collection. These are just base colors at the moment, and later on will probably have some added shimmer or douchrome properties added to them. If you have ideas let me know! I love imput and feedback!

Goliath: a medium yellow green (Named for the Goliath Birdwing)

Xerces: a light lavender (Named for the extinct Xerces Blue)

Karner: a medium purplish blue (Named for the Karner Blue)

Peirrot: a matte black (Named for the Red Peirrot) ** I'd like this one to have silver glitter with a red duochrome**

Judy: RIch purple brown or maroon brown (Named for the Plum Judy)

Painted: a light or medium tan(Named for the painted lady)**I'd like this one to have turquoise reflects**

Morpho: A bright clean tealed blue (Guess which one this is named for) :)

Monarch: a clean bright light orange (take a guess)

Queen Alexandra: a medium tealed green (Named for the Queen Alexandra's Birdwing)

Zerene: bright clean yellow (Named for the Southern Dogface)

This is everything so far. There may be more or I may remove some depending on if I like the finished product or not.

What do you think?
