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! The Last new NCT Palette of the Year..

I can’t believe it!  The last NEW color palette of the year..WHERE THE HECK DID THE YEAR GO?? I thought I would do my last palette with as many of my 2018 “color crushes” as I could- so you see Pistachio, Guava and Copper – all have been noted in my NCTs as favorites.  And

Full Polymer clay ? Or mixed media ?

By  Marion Le Coq, Sculpey Design Squad member As usual, let me talk to you about one of my dilemmas in my polymer clay journey. What kind of clayer are you ? The one that makes everything from polymer clay ? Or the one who loves using different materials mixed with it to create effects ? I never know

New Color Tuesday- Nov Pt 2

Two of my favorite Souffle colors (really obsessions) are featured in this mix: Cinnamon and Pistachio. I don’t think you can go wrong with either color as a mixer!  Of course, I think Cinnamon looks great on it’s own with just about any other color in the Souffle range as well as at least the

How Should I Finish My Pieces?

By Fancy Puppet Today, I’d like to share with you one of my biggest dilemma in creation : How do I have to finish this nice piece ? Do I want a shiny finish ? Something very glossy ? Matte ? Which process ? Sanding and buffing ? with or without wax ? Or, varnish, maybe ? It depends of many features on my creations. Finishing

Light, Clay and Everything about Transparency By: Marion Le Coq

Have you ever had that kind of obsession that follows you everywhere ? Something that goes farther than your creations. Something that stays in your mind wherever you are, whatever you do. Like a lullaby you can’t stop whistling? I’ve had that THING for decades. Since I was a child discovering the world. I have always

New Color Tuesday! Pumpkin Souffle Pt 5

Okay, this is one of the wildest color palettes I’ve had on my table – LOOK at all the different colors!  And it appears that if you run out of Souffle Jade, you can mix a VERY close version with Pistachio and Lagoon.. I really, really like that deep grey color that Pumpkin/Lagoon 1:1 makes

New Color Tuesday! Pumpkin Souffle Pt 4

Anytime I mix with a pinkish color, I now I’m going to get a make-up palette of colors – this is sort of a highlight/contour palette?  I really like the Guava color – I think it’s kind of a magical color because it looks bubblegum pink in the package, but when it’s cured it has

When Looking for Inspiration

I know many artists look to the outdoors when inspiration disappears and you are probably thinking I am being very predictable, but Mother Nature is amazing isn’t she? I am lucky to have October as ‘my’ featured month as Autumn shades are emerging, the deep russet and copper tones I can see through my window

We All Have a Safe Color

By Debbie Bulford Whilst studying Interior Design I discovered a really interesting fact: we all have a ‘safe colour’! I know this sounds strange but it will all become clear I promise! Even though you may follow fashion and colour trends, everyone will have one colour that they keep returning to. What happens if that

New Color Tuesday! Pumpkin Souffle Pt 2

All four of these colors, Pumpkin, Canary, Jade and Latte are my “go-to” colors right now (along with Pistachio). All of these colors have languished in the clay locker at one time or another and then I rediscover them and can’t live without them.  Am I fickle? I’d say so! I can’t even blame it
