TKB Trading’s How Big is the Universe? collection

By the time this group of colorants was released as a collection, I’d long since owned all of these colors. Most are warmer shades, and so Emerald does look a bit odd mixed in with the others. However, the two reds and the orange make a decent trio, as do the yellow-brown-green colors. If you’re interested in trying some TKB Trading colorants, this can be a good collection to start with. Just be aware that Sparkle Rose and Sparkle Gold are larger-particle sparkle shades, and can’t really be completely buffed down. (Emerald, Passion Orange, Sienna Fine, and Oriental Beige can all be buffed and blended from shimmers to satin finishes fairly easily.)
