  1. New Color Tuesday! Summer Sea Glass Pt 2

    Oh yes! Greens! I love me some greens and gold and what says verdant Summer more than these color combos above? Plus, I was surprised that Premo Amber, which is a translucent color came to PLAY in color mixing while adding a nice warmth to the Sea Glass overtone. #1 I want to wear these colors, I want to sleep...

  2. New Color Tuesday - Summer Sea Glass Pt 1

    Well, as my Mother would say, "A day late, a dollar short" and I happen to be BOTH of those right now. LOL. I'm mixing this month with Souffle Sea Glass - a dual personality color - is it blue? Or is it green? Of course, I love the Premo Copper/Sea Glass mix,so lets start with that one. #1 Ohh...

  3. Can You Rebake Polymer Clay?

    If the piece in question has not been glazed or painted, you absolutely can rebake polymer clay. Depending on the project, baking polymer clay multiple times may be the only way to make sure it turns out correctly.  If you do decide to rebake a polymer clay project, be sure to let it cool completely between baking cycles. Also, check that...

  4. Polymer Clay Repair

    Have you spent hours or even days on a polymer clay project only to find that it has suffered small cracks or breakage during baking? Cracking is almost always caused by insufficient curing or by baking a sculpture with uneven thicknesses throughout. To ensure you have a consistent thickness in your piece, we recommend “bulking out” with foil or creating an...

  5. #HowDoYouSculpey -Pandorafied!

    After five years on the Sculpey Design Squad, I’m delighted to say I find it more exciting every year! That’s because of the care and research the Sculpey gang puts into creating new products. It feels like Christmas every time a box arrives. (True Confession: Sometimes I tease myself and I don’t open it for an hour.)  What I find...

  6. New Color Tuesday! Summer Cornflower Pt 4

    Ahh, I saved the best for last! I am all about the Mid-Century Modern shapes, designs and colors- so I get really excited when I find a palette that is reminiscent of that style. I love this entire palette, especially the 3 mixes together.. #1 Great palette with the grey background, right? They would awesome with white and off white...

  7. Just In Time for Summer! Miniature Lemonade Charms

    “Sweet Caroline’s Clay” here! For this project we are going to make a miniature lemonade charm! All you will need is a small amount of Premo Sunshine, Translucent and Black clay, eye pins, some pink chalk for the cheeks and Sculpey Bake and Bond.  Start with a ball of yellow clay- you can ultimately decide the size of your cup. Roll...

  8. New Color Tuesday! Summer Cornflower Pt 3

    Okay, I knew that the Premo Silver and Souffle Turnip would most likely be a really good combination, but I was kind of surprised that it was a nice purple mix because I expected more of a pinkish mix. The Premo Gold/Souffle Turnip was exactly what I thought it would be - a rich copper color. But the Souffle Cornflower/Turnip...

  9. # HowDoYouSculpey? with Caroline Aguanno

    “My name is Caroline, creator of Sweet Caroline’s Clay - Miniatures are my absolute favorite thing to make. I personally feel like the smaller the better! I find that Sculpey Premo™ is the best clay to work with for me. It’s not too hard and not too soft, making it the perfect combo for sculpting minis!   Today I’m going to...

  10. New Color Tuesday! Summer Cornflower Pt 2

    Ohhh! Blues and greens with a dash of warm yellow...that's Summer for me. I see so many possible sub-palettes here is was hard to pick just three. #1 Cornflower, Canary and Canary/Sea Glass 1:1 is a great warm mix without being too much in-your-face with bright colors. This is a happy palette for me. #2 Copper, Canary and Canary/Sea Glass...

  11. Mold Making Pt 1

    Let’s talk about mold making. The process of reproducing one object into multiples. There is some basic terminology associated with mold making which will help with the explanation. The first one would be the Master. The Master is the name of the original object that you want to make multiples of. If it’s a sculpture, it’d be called a Master...

  12. New Color Tuesday! Summer Cornflower Pt 1

    Souffle Cornflower is such an interesting color to me - is it Blue? is it Purple? Its a cool color, right? So why does it FEEL warm to me? I'm starting this Cornflower mix month off with a trio of Premo metal colors. What will this blue/purple/warm/cool color do with the micas? Well first off, they will create one of...

  13. Using Liquid Sculpey® - #HowDoYouSculpey (part2)

    Today I would like to tell you a little bit about my new clay love: Liquid Sculpey®! It does work a bit different then regular polymer clay and you need to get used to the different way of working with it at first. So, to make it easier for you I thought I share a couple of ideas where you...

  14. New Color Tuesday! Fuchsia-I Can't Spell It, But I Sure Can Mix With It!

    Wow! An All-Premo mix card for me - that is rare, given my addiction to Souffle! Premo Gold and Copper are two of my favorite Premo mix colors and Wasabi is definitely my favorite Premo Wild Card mixer! And it didn't disappoint this time - instead it yielded a VERY close version of my beloved terracotta colors. The 2:1 mix...

  15. New Color Tuesday! I Can't Spell It, But I Sure Can Mix With It! Pt 4

    Okay, need a nice neutral brown? Sculpey Premo™ Fuchsia and Green, mixed 1:1, make a perfect neutral brown! By neutral brown, I mean that it's a medium tone, not too warm and not too cool - just right in the middle. It would seem like adding a brown to a color combination would be easy - brown is brown right...

  16. New Color Tuesday - Fuchsia - Can't Spell It But I Sure Can Mix With It! Pt 3

    I'm always surprised at how strong Sunshine stands up to color mixes. Actually, all three of these colors held their own against an arguably strong color like Fuchsia. #1 Ahh, soft Spring to Summer colors that both relax and cool me to look at them! #2 Wow! A bit of a left turn from a classic red, white and blue...

  17. New Color Tuesday! Premo Fuchsia - I Can't Spell It But I Sure Can Mix With It! Pt 2

    I was challenged by one of my CBFF (Clay Best Friends Forever) to mix with Premo Fuchsia this month. Since Fuchsia is a primary mix color, I had kind of overlooked it in my NCT - but I got really excited about the possibilities- and I wasn't disappointed! First off, check out that Wasabi/Fuchsia mix! Looking like a Premo Terracotta...

  18. #HowDoYouSculpey with Amy Hucks

    As you read in my previous blog post, I am all about sculpting faces. Being able to bring out beings and creatures from inspiring photos or your imagination is a joy. There are a lot of anatomy & expression references sources available. Here are my three favorites: The Artist's Guide by Gary Faigin, FaeMaker by Dawn M. Schiller and Fairies...

  19. #HowDoYouSculpey-What I Like Most About Sculpey and How I Work With It

    “Hungry Fungus", made with Sculpey Premo™ When I was asked what I like best about Sculpey and especially how I use it, at first I did not know what to say. Honestly the answer is not that easy! Thinking about what I use polymer clay for, and specifically Sculpey, I can not give you a straight forward answer. I am...

  20. #HowDoYouSculpey

    This is a great hashtag to answer, as it has really made me look at my clay journey over the last few years.  My love of Sculpey  and polymer clay began with sculpting silly and super simple zombie fingers for friends. I was enthralled by how the this medium took to form and texture. The colors choices from bright to...

  21. New Color Tuesday! Fuchsia - I Can't Spell It, but I Sure Can Mix With It! Pt 1

    I was FB video chatting with a clay friend and I said I had to mix NCT that day, and so I asked her what color to feature. She exclaimed, “Fuchsia!” I laughed and said, “Well, I can’t ever spell it right, but I know I can mix with it!” Fuchsia, of course, IS a mix color in just about...

  22. Mold Making Tips

    We get asked all of the time about how to make molds of things that you create.  So we are teaming up with our friend Matt Jones of the Plastik Surgery Workshop to give a little advice on the best ways to do this. Tip 1 - One Piece Tool - Mold Making: - We call the 3D design you...

  23. New Color Tuesday! Its Time for a Little Latte-Pt 4

    Okay, Sculpey Soufflé™ Canary brought the mid-century colors! What a great set of colors - all 7 of them! Of course, I knew that Latte and Canary would mix to a great Key Lime, but I didn't expect that nice soft green from Cornflower (this color has some mixing CHOPS!). I thought that Raspberry would totally overwhelm the Canary, but...

  24. New Color Tuesday! Time for a Little Latte - Pt 3

    Souffle Raspberry is a pretty strong statement color, but it does play wellwith other colors. But first, I have to point out what a great palette thatmaster group of colors makes - Bluestone, Latte, Concrete and Raspberry for a pop of color. Latte lends warmth to the color colors and Raspberry adds the fun-lol. Now the sub-palettes: #1 I like...

  25. New Color Tuesday! It's Time for a Little Latte Pt 2

    Bluestone is one of my very first Souffle color crushes. It does so well on its own, I find it a challenge sometimes to find colors that will stand up to it in a combination. Certainly, Bluestone, Poppy Seed and Igloo is my most favorite combo – so clean and can go casual or more formal. I really, really like...

  26. New Color Tuesday! It's Time for a Little Latte Pt 1

    I can't be the only one who often forgets that they really, really like a color and then rediscover it right? Well, Latte is one of those colors. It was really my first color crush in Souffle. It adds an interesting mid tone to any color combination without demanding too much attention. So I wanted to mix with it again...

  28. New Color Tuesday - Going Back to My Roots Pt 4

    Now I have to clarify something. I found a frozen turkey breast in the freezer and cooked it - which *may* have influenced this palette a little. Aren't these lovely late Summer/Autumn colors? #1 These 2:1 mixes just whisper memories of sunshine and summer fun to me. No, it isn't just confinement - my clay talks to me a lot...

  29. New Color Tuesday - Back to My Roots! Pt 3

    I just love how Pistachio is such a wild card for mixing! And I love this palette of colors. Those mix colors are going to get made into something THIS week if I can swing it! So let’s look at the sub-palettes: #1 Ohh, I like this one too – maybe I’ll have to make something with this palette as...

  30. New Color Tuesday - Back to My Roots Pt 2

    Looking for some faux leather colors? You know that the Soufflé® surface looks like leather, so how to mix some leather colors? But isn't Soufflé® all about right colors? How about a rich dark brown? Well how about that surprise of Soufflé® Poppy Seed and Cinnamon? That is one nice brown. And Sea Glass and Cinnamon? How can a grey...
