New Color Tuesday! What About White? Pt 2

My adventure with Igloo continues..  and I’ve decided to put all the palettes together so that they stay sorted correctly (THANKS ANNA!)  This is a fun palette because the starter colors look very nautical, until you add the pop of Canary and, of course, I’ve never met a green color I didn’t like!   Canary can

Plants and Polymer Clay?

When Was the Last Time You Looked At Plants? I mean had a really long, hard, good look at plants? From the thickness of their foliage, width of their stems, hardiness of their shoots, to the wide variety of colors and textures of their blooms. For many of us in the US, we just got

New Color Tuesday! What About White?

I realized in last month that in all the years I’ve done NCT that I’ve never featured White as a mix color.  So this month, Igloo is my featured color-and, as usual, there were some surprises along the way.  I started with a kind of nautical palette of  Souffle Sea Glass, Igloo and Lagoon, but

Polymer Clay Projects for Kids

Kids love to play with clay. It gives them the freedom to build anything they want, squash it and start all over again to make something new. Plus, they love the way cool, soft clay feels in their hands. They’re allowed to get messy and let their imaginations soar. In addition to being fun, there

New Color Tuesday! Another Clay Crush Pt 4

I won’t deny it – warm, bright colors are my Happy Place – and this weeks mixes make me very, very HAPPY. I can see myself using all three of these mixes often – I love those two golden mixes (Cinnamon/Canary 1:4 is still my favorite Maize mix though).  And I really kind of like

New Color Tuesday! Another Clay Crush Pt 3

I know, CRAZY right?  I just triple checked my master photo to make sure that I had these laid out correctly.  I expect one or, maybe two, surprise mixes, but not ALL THREE!   And Souffle Sea Glass?  Apparently, it’s as weird as it’s Premo counterpart Peacock Pearl!  You NEVER know what the mixes will be

Learning Japanese characters and words with clay

I have always wanted to learn Japanese but it is quite challenging to learn such a difficult language especially when I am living in rural England with no access to Japanese language classes or tutors. Since I am learning a 3rd language by myself, I relied on free tutorials online and even Google translate. I

New Color Tuesday! Another Clay Crush Pt 1

Yeah, I admit it, I get obsessed with a color from time to time (okay, ALL THE TIME).  Right now it’s Souffle Guava – a regular pink in the package that somehow transforms to a warm pink when cured (although it doesn’t actually change color).  And look how nice it looks with the  18% grey background.

New Color Tuesday – April is a Little Jaded Pt 4

Ah now, we have some Spring/Summer colors here! I am fascinated at how boldly Souffle Canary mixes with other colors.  And I have a new color crush – Guava.  In the package it looks a little to blah pink, but it’s magic once it’s baked.  I don’t think it shifts color, but it like solidifies

New Color Tuesday! April is a Little Jaded Pt 3

Wow, I didn’t know when I picked that title that April would actually be the “January 96th”.  My heart goes out to all those caught up in the huge storms this week!  It really makes those of us in the sunshine states feel guilty (like, why am I inside writing on my computer when I

New Color Tuesday! April is a Little Jaded Pt 2

The week was an interesting experiment.  I took the three Souffle colors that have captured my Squirrel!-like attention lately and mixed them with Premo Accents Silver (another color that I tend to forget about). All three of the mixes are beautiful and elegant.  The Silver toned down the “hey look at me” portion of the

What’s Your Favorite Color?

by Anke Humpert “People observe the colors of a day only at its beginnings and its ends, but to me it’s quite clear that a day merges through a multitude of shades and intonations, with each passing moment. A single hour can consist of thousands of different colors. Waxy yellows, cloud-spat blues. Murky darknesses. In
