New Color Tuesday! It’s All About the Sunset Pt 2

Um, Um, UMM!!  I love me some golden oranges.    In fact my office that I’m sitting in right now is painted a color between the first two mixes.  That final mix is my new favorite yellow mix as well – kind of a maize color?  That mix will look amazing with Peacock Pearl or

Getting Trendy

Current trends inspire my polymer clay work all the time. Ring dish bowls are also on trend as they create a safe and trendy place to keep your rings, earrings, and

New Color Tuesday- It’s All About the Sunset

Sunset Pearl (and Mai Tai in Souffle) are two colors I seem to forget about in my color palettes.  In fact, I seem to forget about the reds pretty much altogether (except for Orange tones that I want to bathe in).  But apparently my cat likes the reds, she kind of tore up the side

Building a Polymer Clay Cane Collection

by Sherri Kellberg Here is just a small sample of some of my raw polymer clay canes. When the mood strikes me I’ll make a bunch of different canes, I find it relaxing and fun. I usually work on about 3 projects at once. If I get tired of working on one, or can’t

New Color Tuesday! That Flashy Peacock Pt 5

Okay, this one kind shocked me.  I didn’t think I would get any color, other than a mud look, when I mixed premo! Sculpey Accents Peacock Pearl with premo! Orange.  I not only got colors, I got COLORS. That 4PP/1O mix is a really nice Teal!  Then when I added the 18k Gold to the

New Color Tuesday! That Flashy Peacock Pt 4

Oh yeah, I couldn’t play with Peacock Pearl without getting Purple Pearl involved too!  Want a Navy Blue Pearl?  Look at that first 1:1 mix!  That is a gorgeous color that would look so classy combined with Silver wouldn’t it? Then of course, the next mix (1PP/2P) creates kind of an ultraviolet metallic color.  And

New Color Tuesday! That Flashy Peacock Pt 3

Well, since I mixed with a Gold last week, I decided I better give premo! Sculpey Accents Silver and White Gold Glitter their opportunity to show us what they can do when mixed with Peacock Pearl.  Naturally, there is a “Frozen” aspect to all the mixes, but that 1:1 would be gorgeous with Copper or

Sharing Your Work Online

by Nadia Michaux The internet is a great platform for any polymer clay artist to share their work with the world. I’m an independant artist so I do not have a budget to advertise my miniatures so I fully utilise social media to get new clients. Social media can be great since everyone is practically

New Color Tuesday! That Flashy Peacock Pt 2

I was so intrigued with the 3 part mixes I did last week using premo! Sculpey Accents Peacock Pearl, Copper  with 18K Gold that I thought I would start with just mixing the Peacock and 18k together to see what happened.  They all mix to a lovely shade of green – that was no surprise.  But

New Color Tuesday – That Flashy Peacock

I got so fascinated with premo! Sculpey Accents Copper that I had to carry it over into August as well – starting with one of my other favorite Accent colors, Peacock Pearl!  I always say that I see things in a sheet of Peacock Pearl in the way the mica shifts through the clay and

New Color Tuesday! Ya Got Me Copper Pt 4

First of all, these two colors look really nice together don’t they?  Sunset Pearl is usually a pretty strong color, but the Copper seems to temper it a little. I also love every one of these mixes. They would be gorgeous with a deep Turquoise, or how about premo! Sunshine? Wisteria? Peacock Pearl? ohhh, JUNGLE..

New Color Tuesday- Ya Got Me Copper Pt 3

I like these!  I don’t know why I like a purplish copper, but I always do.  It would be so gorgeous embossed with a stamp and then highlighted with Gold Pearl Ex or gold paint. Or even in a fall leaf motif as a counter to the warmer colors of the season. (but what do

New Color Tuesday! Ya Got Me Copper Pt 2

This one was interesting….I mean, I expected a little green to come out because that seems to happen whenever I mix ANYTHING with premo! Sculpey Accents Peacock,  but the two middle colors?  I think that they are super cool metallics – what perfect colors for picture frames, draw pulls, even a different bezel color than

New Color Tuesday (on a Wednesday)

I figured we would all be outside enjoying the holiday yesterday, so I decided to wait until today to post the NCT for this week!  Well, I’ve done it again, become infatuated with a color that has languished in my clay locker forEVER.  premo! Sculpey Accents Copper has always been the red-haired stepchild to my

New Color Tuesday – A Little Goes a Long Way Pt 4

Well, it just doesn’t feel like a NCT month without a Glitter Gold mix as well!  These last two mixes take me back to the 60s – they look like a kind of glittery avocado green. I imagine a vase with this sitting on the end table to accent the gold, orange and avocado green

New Color Tuesday! A Little Goes a Long Way Pt 3

I loved the  premo! Sculpey Wasabi/Turquoise mixes so much, I decided to give it a try with Cobalt Blue.  I like the cool greens of the mixes, but they aren’t as tealish (is that a word?) as I had thought they would be.  They are all lovely, calming colors.  The first two remind me of

New Color Tuesday! A Little Goes a Long Way

Last week I played with one of my favorite colors, teal.  This week I’m playing with another favorite of mine – premo! Sculpey Accents Bronze. Mixing Bronze with Wasabi? Really??? It worked out even better than I thought! Not only did I get a more copper-looking color with the 2B/1W, I got one of the

New Color Tuesday – A Little Goes a Long Way

My assumption when I decided to feature premo! Sculpey Wasabi for my June mixes was that it would basically just “punch up” the colors for me.  Well, surprise!  Just like it’s namesake, a little goes a long way!  My first mix was actually a request from last month for a “verdigris color”.  I love verdigris

New Color Tuesday! Lots of Latte Pt 5

Well, I can’t do a mix without having a premo! Sculpey Accents Bronze mix as well!  And I vote YES on all these mixes..especially that 1:1 mix.  Oh, in a combination with Purple Pearl and/or Bright Green Pearl?  Even premo! Orange. And that 4L/1B looks like an expensive camel hair coat color to me, so

New Color Tuesday! Lots of Latte Pt 4

I am not the biggest fan of purple.  I know, it’s a surprise, given that I love bright colors right?  I do have to admit though that I’m loving those first two mixes though (Oh GOD!  I’m liking subdued colors?Am I becoming OLD????!?? Nah, body may age, but the goofy tastes will remain).  I’d like

Let me back up a bit and tell you when I learned this technique which is called “chalking” in the ceramic world. One of my very first crafts after I got married was ceramics. It was similar to the ‘paint your own pottery’ shops you see today, but it was a ceramic store with many bookshelves of ceramics in the dried slip stage. They would teach you how to clean up the seam edges with sharp tools (that I still have believe it or not) from where the halves went together. I used a moist sponge for smoothing I believe.

Chalkboard Flowers

Post by Shirley Rufener With the popularity of chalkboards this season I wanted to mimic the look with polymer clay for adding accents, and it worked! I was so excited when the first flower was finished that I put it right on a chalkboard. I am in the process of adding a complete step-by-step chalkboard technique

Well, I’m back from another great trip to Florida for the Fandango retreat!

New Color Tuesday! Lots of Latte Pt 1

I’ve become fascinated lately with mixing Sculpey Souffle and premo! Sculpey Accents colors together. (Ya’ll know that I use Accents Bronze and Souffle Cinnamon 1:1 on almost a daily basis right?) So I was wondering what would happen if I mixed Souffle Latte into some of the other Accents Pearl colors to see what happened.

NCT (Thursday) When Gold Isn’t Enough

I was goofing around yesterday (you know, instead of ACTUALLY doing the thing I was SUPPOSED to do) and I found that I needed to match a bronze Lumiere paint in a scrap piece I was playing with.  (Hey, the commissioned piece was actually drying before baking). Regular premo! Accents Gold was just too bright,
