This guide is for you if you are wanting to get into making cute charms out of polymer clay or have already started and consider yourself a beginner. I have been making kawaii style charms since I first picked up my first blocks of clay in 2012 and have learnt lots along the way, so

New Color Tuesday-18k Pt 3

Now we already know that Souffle Turnip can do magical things, but check out Cherry Pie! We now have a Orange/Mango Glitter! And how about Royalty with that cool Brass tone? Guava makes the 18k warmer and richer while Turnip gives us a deep Rose Gold. The mica in these mixes is just lovely. To

New Color Tuesday-18k Pt 2

Ahh, it’s the Souffle blues and greens week – just in time for St. Patrick’s Day! (my mother was a Murphy) I’m still amazed that Pistachio, even at a 1:4 ratio, still makes itself known. And who would guess that Jade would almost bow out while Sea Glass definitely holds it own (and I love

Understanding Terracotta Clay

It doesn’t matter if you’re new to clay or you’ve been working with this medium for many years. With so many types of clay out there, it can be hard to remember exactly how they’re similar or what their unique characteristics are. Terracotta and polymer clays represent two different types. If you’re new to this

Mixing Brands of Clay by Rachel Hateley

I have found that with the many years I’ve been sharing my polymer clay work online I often get a lot of questions about different the techniques and processes I use, which is great because crafters are trying to learn new things and further improve their skills. Some of these questions are quite advanced and

Sculpey Souffle Colors Mixed Bluestone, Cowboy, Cinnamon, Pumpkin

New Color Tuesday- 18k Pt 1

YES, Premo Accents 18K Gold is my current Color Crush! Especially when I mix it with Souffle – any Souffle. I love to see how the Souffle disperses the mica throughout the mixes. This month I’m going to mix with colors kind of in groups. This week it’s the natural tones (of Fall maybe?). I

New Color Tuesday! All that Glitters Pt 4

Well, February was over in a flash! Actually, a splash where I live – historical amounts of rain and snow here in SoCal. This week I’m mixing the Glitter Golds with Souffle Sea Glass, which is one of my favorite mix colors because I never know if it’s going to go blue or green. I

New Color Tuesday! All That Glitters Pt 3

These are interesting! Again, you can clearly see what each of the Glitters bring to the table in terms of warm/coolness. I think the Rose GG/Turnip is my favorite! I kinda want that in nail polish.. To the sub-palettes! #1 Yes! I would totally use this sub palette – especially for jewelry, but I can

New Color Tuesday! All That Glitters Pt 2

Ohhh, I love the greens! Jade has been an underused color in my palettes that has lately risen to the near top (which is permanently occupied by Cinnamon). I love all three of these mixes for their unique color properties – the Rose mix is rich and warm; the Yellow is warm and bright; and

Polymer Clay Color Mixing By Jenny Sorensen

One of the best things about Sculpey polymer clay is experimenting with all the amazing colors that are available.  By taking some notes as I blend my own colors, I can easily recreate them. I’ll share some of the ways I take my colors to the next level and create a completely customized palette. Here

New Color Tuesday- All That Glitters Pt 1

I decided I wanted to see just how well the Souffle disburses the glitter in the Premo Accents Glitter Golds since I love how Souffle disburses the mica in the metallics. I started this month with one of my current favorites – Souffle Guava. I got so entranced with the mix I did of Guava

New Color Tuesday-Well HELLO New Year! Pt5

I wanted to take the last NCT of January to show you two mixes from this month that I thought were just extraordinary. The first is Premo Accents Silver mixed with Souffle Poppy Seed, Guava and Bluestone. I don’t know about you, but I seem to forget about Silver from time to time because I

What Surprised Me About Souffle

First, as I’ve said many times, the colors really surprised me when I opened the test box of clay. But after a full day of working with it, I realized how they were designed to go together and pop against each other. They look like custom colors right out of the package. Second, when I

New Color Tuesday! Well Hello New Year Pt 4

I love me some 18K Gold, so I decided to add it to my mix list this month. Of course, I used some of my most favorite Souffle mixes with it – Latte, Pumpkin and Guava. Now I DO tend to come and go with Pumpkin, but then I find it again and think to

New Color Tuesday – Well Hello New Year Pt 3

Premo Accents Copper languished on my clay shelf for far too long.  Then when I picked it up again, I was like “hmm, why have I left this for so long?”  Now it’s one of my staples, especially for mixing because it adds a richness to the colors without the boldness of mixing with Gold.

My Souffle Fan Mail

I am probably the biggest fan of Souffle out there! (and you probably already gathered that from all my posts..LOL) It wasn’t always that way…. Part of what I do for Sculpey is create projects with the new products and items for the packaging photos.  I also like to say that it’s my job to try

New Color Tuesday! Well Hello New Year

Remember when last year January felt like it was 15 weeks long?  Well, this year on the calendar it IS long – 5 weeks!  This week I’m mixing  Premo Accents Antique Gold with Souffle Poppy Seed, Bluestone and Pumpkin.  The souffle combo is an unlikely favorite of mine – it’s not a light palette or

New Color Tuesday! Well Hello New Year

                              Looking for a way to get a slightly more pastel color, maybe a little sparkle as well? My method to do this is to mix with either Premo Accents 18k (for a warm tone) or Premo Accents Silver (for a

New Color Tuesday- 2018 The Final Chapter

Happy Holidays to you all! I’m speechless that it’s the LAST NCT of the year – where did the time fly by?  For me, a lot of time was flying by while I was gleefully making a mess at my clay table.  A lot of time was spent traveling from one retreat to the next,

The Craft Fairs

I tend to participate in craft fairs only during the holiday season. I’m sure I could pursue farmer’s markets and summer craft fairs if I really wanted to. However, there’s something about the season of gift-giving that makes me all giddy about presenting my art to the community.  I want my art to be the

Making holiday sculptures

by Megan Durocher Before the snow starts to fall, I’m working on holiday and winter-themed sculptures. As soon as there’s a chill in the air I start looking at the red and green clay. I’m very much a home-body, so when winter arrives it’s really an excuse for me to stay in, bundle up, and

New Color Tuesday! syn’s Favorites from 2018

It should come as NO surprise that a palette that yielded greens would be in my Favorite List!  Let’s look back at March for these wonderful soft Spring greens. The soft look of them comes from, of course, the Latte mixed into them.  I also have to point out that these 3 colors have yielded

Becoming a Sculptor

by Megan Durocher We all have someone who inspires us. For me, that was my stepfather, Dennis. While he was on hospice, I took care of him. During this time, he told me that I needed to do something for myself as well. I tried to think of things that I could pursue and find

New Color Tuesday – 2018 Looking Back Pt 1

I want to start my look back with my favorite mix of the year.  I have mixed these colors over and over and used them whenever I could sneak them in.  They feel both retro and on-trend to me and, of course, greens are always timeless to me!  The fun part of mixing with Souffle
