Handmade: How to Customize Colors

Because Handmade was created before WordPress implemented the Customizer, it does not have any color customization options. It is also a graphically designed theme rather than a flat or CSS-only theme, therefore re-styling it takes advanced customization. The following template can assist you in customizing basic aspects such as colors, font styles or borders. For advanced restyling such as graphic/background fill replacement, changes in the layout or adding elements, please refer to this article.

Note about Fonts

Note that most font elements can be customized using Theme Options  Typography.  See the Typography article for more information.

Using these codes

Copy the code for the element you want to customize and paste it into Theme Options in the Custom CSS box, then edit the style information with your desired attributes such as font pixel size, font name, color code, etc.
