This whole set took a little less than 1 cone of variegated yellow and 2 balls of solid yellow. The mat on this one is a little wider than I prefer. I really need to write down my formulas so I can keep them consistent. I posted photos of both sides of the pot holder because I just think that the contrast of the bold yellow and variegated looks really neat on both sides. I generally don't like to use white on kitchen items becuse of staining but I thought this was pretty.
