    New Color Tuesday! Introducing Premo™ Turquoise Granite- Pt 4

    Of course I had to throw a little of my beloved Sculpey Soufflé™ into the mixes! The texture of the Soufflé really adds to the illusion of stone in the marbled mixes as well. #1 Ohhhh Latte! I love this color with the TG. And the mix? Wow, it looks like sandstone mixed into the granite! #2 This is a...

    Got Scrap?

    First of all, I don’t think of scrap clay as SCRAP.  I usually think of it as “Round Two” of my designs. And Sometimes, I even try to purposely create scrap clay – that’s a lot harder than it sounds actually! This is a 1:1 mix of these 2 colors for a NCT post. Every month when I go through...

    My Love Letter to Etch n' Pearls

    If you know me, you know that I love the Sculpey Tools™ Etch n’ Pearls.  Those odd little metal pokey things that are sold in a set of 3.
