New Color Tuesday November Mix Pt 3 with Concrete

New Color Tuesday! Concrete Crazy Pt 3

I’m highlighting mixing with Souffle Concrete this month. I’ll admit it, Concrete was a forgotten color in my clay cabinet – but what a great subtle mixer it is! I thought that mixing with some seasonal colors this week would be appropriate and they are all gorgeous! That ENTIRE palette looks wonderful together! I love

November New Color Tuesday pt 2

New Color Tuesday – Souffle Concrete Pt 1

That’s right, I get subtle this month – no in-your-face color mixes for once! Hey, I’ve got to play grownup once in a while! It’s no secret that I’m really into greys now with my Antique Red hair. Premo Slate, Premo Accents Graphite and Souffle Concrete are figuring quite prominently in my clays on the

New Collor Tuesday mix featuring Souffle Guava and Raspberry

New Color Tuesday! Great Guava Part 5 Fall Color Mixes for Oranges

I thought it would be appropriate to create the “bonus” 5th NCT post for October with some orange mixes for Halloween and The Season. I correctly figured that if I teamed Souffle Raspberry with some yellow type colors, I would get some oranges. I was OBSESSED with Souffle Raspberry when it came out and I’m

Souffle Guava and Pistachio mixes

New Color Tuesday! Great Guava Mixes with Pistachio Pt 4

Yeah, I am LOVING this month’s NCT mixes! I know I’m going to get amazing (often shocking) mixes when I mix with Souffle Pistachio, but little did I know it could stand so strong with the bolder colors in the Souffle palette. And OF COURSE, check the amazing golden color Pistachio and Guava create! To

Jewelry created with veneered canes made with Sculpey polymer clay

Claying with Veneers by Lynn Yuhr

Veneers are a staple in polymer clay creations.  I use veneers ALL the time. It is basically a decorative sheet of clay. It could be a sheet with a surface treatment (for example, silk screened or alcohol inks), a pattern of cane slices pieced together or a mokume gane slice. But it can also be

October New Color Tuesday Pt 3

New Color Tuesday-Great Guava Pt 3

Premo Accents Copper (one of my favs) is mixed 1:1 with 3 of my favorite Souffle clay colors to create one of my most favorite color palettes EVER! In face, I’ve created 4 necklaces and a bracelet already with this palette and I want to make more. The 3 1:1 mixes invoke a kind of

1:1 color mixes with Souffle and Premo Accents 18K Gold

New Color Tuesday! Great Guava Pt 2

Now I love me some Premo Accents 18k Gold – and it mixes so beautifully with the Souffle color palette. The gorgeous hint of sparkle from the 18k adds a soft luster to the finished mix. Wow! That IS effusive, but I DO love the mixes. I really liked how these randomish colors of Guava,

Creating Color Stories

By Lynn Yuhr The colors of clay and the way we can manipulate those colors is probably one of the leading factors that drew us into this medium. It was for me!  The range of polymer clay colors right out of the package are wonderful. They provide a solid jumping off point for any design.

polymer clay 1:1 color mixes with Souffle Guava

New Color Tuesday! Great Guava Pt 1

Now, if you know me, you know that I’m allergic to pink, right? I’m a redhead – my mom NEVER let me wear pink or red. But I like this Souffle Guava. It’s got such a nice warm pink – more of a cocktail pink- grownup pink? Let me show you, starting with some Souffle

Souffle color mixing for cool Fall colors

New Color Tuesday! Almost Fall Pt 4

This week I am combining a cooler palette of Souffle colors for Fall – think more like in the cool shadows of the trees with ripe berries on the bushes. (Of course, I’m imagining all that, since palm trees and berry bushes aren’t seen together too often!) Mixing equal parts of colors can seem pretty

New Color Tuesday! Almost Fall Pt 3

This week I’m starting with a classic Fall palette of colors, featuring Souffle Pumpkin, Cinnamon, Canary and Grape (that sounded like a pie recipe until I listed the Canary, right?) The mixed set of colors are a lovely set of almost wine colors that still evoke the Fall mood. I was stunned to see that

New Color Tuesday! Almost FAll with Souffle Pt 2

Souffle Canary is one of those colors that always surprises in mixes. OF COURSE I love the Maize color created by Souffle Cinnamon and Canary mixed 1:1 (change the ratio dropping the Cinnamon amount for a lighter version). I was surprised that the Souffle Cowboy/Canary mix makes almost a Latte color! And of course, super

New Color Tuesday! Cornflower Pt 4

This is possibly my most favorite mix for the year! That BGP/Souffle Cinnamon mix is such a gorgeous deep golden color with a beautiful shimmer. And the BGP/Souffle Latte? It makes my mid-century modern brain so happy. I got a little carried away with my scraps and I’ll show you later what I made with

It’s All About the Shapes

    by Teresa Pandora Salgado We’ve established the fact that bull’s eyes, stripes and spirals are the basis for complex caning; but being “creative types”, we’re not quite satisfied, are we? Individuality comes from shaping the components and even the finished canes into new configurations. For this cane, I made the typical components: a log

New Color Tuesday! Cornflower Pt 3

I admit it, I have FUN mixing Souffle colors with the Premo Pearls because I NEVER know what it is going to produce. I mean Purple Pearl and Latte produced a deep gold color! WHAAAT? Latte is a color super hero like Robin Egg and Pistachio – it more than holds its own against the

Simple Complexity – The Caning Oxymoron

In the course of daily interactions, I’m often asked the default conversational question, “What do you do?”. I’ll admit I get a cheap thrill out of replying, “I teach millefiori complex caning.” That phrase alone weeds out those who really don’t care what I do, (which is most people). When they do show interest, I

New Color Tuesday!Cornflower Pt 2

Give me greens…any kind of greens… and I’ll like them. I figured that I would get a batch of greens from this color mixing and I wasn’t disappointed. This is an interesting process – mixing the Souffle colors with the “wilder” Premo Pearls. I just love the shimmer that 2:1 (2Pearl:1Souffle) produces with ALL the

New Color Tuesday! Souffle Cornflower Pt 1

The new Souffle color called Cornflower is an interesting color -Is it blue? Is it purple? Is it BOTH? And since I’m obsessed with mixing Souffle with Premo Accents Metallics right now, I thought I would mix with the wildest of the metallics (Purple Pearl and Bright Green Pearl) with both a cool palette and

New Color Tuesday! The Reds and Blues Pt 5

Okay, let’s finish July with a BANG! and mix colors with one of the Premo Accents Glitter clays – White Gold Glitter. Personally, I’m a little surprised that July would have the machismo to have FIVE Tuesdays in it! It’s kind of a lazy mid-summer month – it’s not supposed to be so hard working..

New Color Tuesday! New Reds and Blues Pt 4

I figured we all needed to cool off, so let’s mix some Blues this week! I was mildly shocked that my Premo Wild Child (Peacock Pearl) didn’t dish up some surprises this week, but it did dish up some lovely deep purples and blues. My favorite is the Souffle Cornflower and Wild Child, er Peacock
