    1. Hi Kathryn,

      Thanks for your comment! I focus largely on black/white mixes because that’s what I know, and I don’t want to pretend to know what it’s like for others. The educators’ guide, however, and the anthology it accompanies, are about all different types of mixtures. Hope that clears things up!
