Does Sculpey look interesting, but you tell yourself you just don’t have time? Well, syndee holt will prove you wrong. She has worked as an independent polymer clay artist, photographer, and author for over 18 years while maintaining a full time career (she recently retired!) and raising her two sons herself, even caring for her terminally ill father for several years. She wrote her book, Polymer Clay for the First Time, with 4 little boys playing Nintendo behind her and in between laundry and cooking duties. Her bibliography now lists over 100 polymer clay articles in magazines published throughout the world as well as over 35 television appearances. Still don’t think you have time for crafts?

  4. Introducing Sculpey Soufflé™ Ivory Pt 4

    Wow! This is a trio of really rich Soufflé™ colors that I'm mixing 4 parts to 1 part of the Soufflé™ Ivory this week! I actually like all the four original colors together because the Ivory really adds the pop to the darker palette of the other three colors. The top row of the large photo contains the 3 colors...

  5. Introducing Sculpey Soufflé™ Ivory Pt 2

    Well, of course, I had to try three of the Sculpey Premo™ colors that I think have the most depth to their colors - the new Burnt Orange and Forest Green. Alizarin Crimson, an old stalwart in the Sculpey Premo™ line of colors was actually my first choice for this weeks color experiment. The top row of the large photo...

  6. Introducing Sculpey Soufflé™ Ivory Pt 1

    Okay, I can't tell you how much I love this clay color! It is like the combination of the color with the unique texture of Soufflé™ creates the perfect clay for my preferred work palette. This color may look like it is a soft color, but WOW, I had to mix 4 parts of the other colors with it because...

  7. New Color Tuesday! Introducing Sculpey Premo™ Forest Green - Pt 4

    Of course I had to try this new Premo color with my beloved Sculpey Soufflé™ ! And look at those mixes! I would use all 3 of those colors! The top row of the large photo contains the 3 colors that I'm mixing with the Forest Green (FG) on the far right. The bottom 3 colors are the colors mixes...

  8. New Color Tuesday! Introducing Sculpey Premo™ Forest Green - Pt 3

    I expected lots of greens with these mix colors and I wasn't disappointed. Plus that Turquoise/Forest Green mix is gorgeous! I'm going to mix a big batch of that to use! The top row of the large photo contains the 3 colors that I'm mixing with the Forest Green (FG) on the far right. The bottom 3 colors are the...

  9. New Color Tuesday! Introducing Sculpey Premo™ Forest Green - Pt 2

    I HAD to do some more mixes with the metallics. That Sunset Pearl mix was so cool looking as marbled colors that I left it just a tiny bit marbled for you to see! The top row of the large photo contains the 3 colors that I'm mixing with the Forest Green (FG) on the far right. The bottom 3...

  10. New Color Tuesday! Introducing Sculpey Premo™ Forest Green - Pt 1

    If you have been able to catch any of my Zoom "What's New" presentations you know that I'm fascinated with this color and how it mixes. LOOK AT HOW IT MIXES WITH THESE METALLICS! Of course any of these colors or mixes can be used in combination with any other colors you wish, but I've picked 3 palettes of colors...

  11. New Color Tuesday! Introducing Sculpey Soufflé™ Yellow Ochre- Pt 5

    Well of course I had to see how the new Sculpey Soufflé™ played with some of the Sculpey Premo™ metallics! Normally, I would have one of the golds in the trio, but I decided to mix it up and use Premo™ Pearl instead - and it didn't disappoint! It created a color very similar to 18K but with the mica...

  12. New Color Tuesday! Introducing Sculpey Soufflé™ Yellow Ochre- Pt 4

    There is not a color in that palette that doesn't work well with all the others! And OHHHHH! That Soufflé™ Guava/Yellow Ochre mix is my Color for Summer for sure! Of course any of these colors or mixes can be used in combination with any other colors you wish, but I've picked 3 palettes of colors using ONLY the original...

  13. New Color Tuesday! Introducing Sculpey Soufflé™ Yellow Ochre - Pt 3

    Okay, first of all, I never would have imagined that Sculpey Soufflé™ Raspberry, Concrete and Poppy Seed could create such a dynamic color palette! And then the new Yellow Ochre adds just the right amount of POP to the palette! Of course any of these colors or mixes can be used in combination with any other colors you wish, but...

  14. New Color Tuesday! Introducing Sculpey Soufflé™ Yellow Ochre - Pt 2

    I threw some curveballs to my Sculpey Soufflé™ Yellow Ochre this week with the color I chose. I kind of guessed that I would get some form of green when I mixed the Ochre with Cornflower. Pistachio is one of my wild cards - I guessed some form of light green and I was correct! Royalty surprised me with a...

  15. New Color Tuesday! Introducing Sculpey Soufflé™ Yellow Ochre - Pt 1

    I was sooo excited when I received my box that contained the new Sculpey Soufflé™ Yellow Ochre (which I will refer to as just "Ochre" in the photos). I have pestered Sculpey forever to create this color. Not only does it hold its own in designs, but it is such a great mix color as well - it's like adding...

  16. New Color Tuesday! Introducing Sculpey Premo™ Burnt Orange-Pt. 4

    Well, of course I had to try my new favorite color with my favorite clay, Sculpey Soufflé™ ! And I am loving the results!

  17. New Color Tuesday! Introducing Sculpey Premo™ Burnt Orange-Pt. 3

    This palette kind of reminds me of the the first week palette with a few little textural twists of granite and mica in the 18k Gold and Pearl. Of course any of these colors or mixes can be used in combination with any other colors you wish, but I've picked 3 palettes of colors using ONLY the original colors and...

  18. New Color Tuesday! Introducing Sculpey Premo™ Burnt Orange-Pt. 2

    I'm really mixing up the colors this week! Peacock Pearl, Wasabi, Fuschia and Burnt Orange. Recipe for disaster? I thought it *might* be, but look at those colors! What a change to the Peacock Pearl while just lightly tinting the Wasabi. And that deep red/orange of the Fuschia/Burnt Orange mix looks like a tomato red! Of course any of these...

  19. New Color Tuesday! Introducing Sculpey Premo™ Burnt Orange-Pt. 1

    I am so exciting to show you the incredible mixing power of this Sculpey Premo™ Burnt Orange. If you have caught me on one of the Zooms where I show the new colors, you are probably aware that I am AMAZED at this color. Just mixing it with Sculpey Premo™ White yields everything from buttery yellows to bright oranges. (This...

  20. New Color Tuesday! Introducing Premo Pale Blue- Pt 4

    Okay, I REALLY threw myself a curveball with this palette - but somehow it worked! Those starting colors are NOT a normal palette for me, but the mixes are terrific! #1 Graphite Pearl adds a sense of mystery to ANY color palette and nicely offsets the boldness of the Premo Orange in this palette. #2 Those 3 mixes are really...

  21. New Color Tuesday! Introducing Premo Pale Blue - Pt 3

    Well, I thought I would get some really different colors with this palette and I was not disappointed! In fact, I think that I mixed some of my favorite mix colors of the year so far. Now these are FOR SURE custom mix colors and they are so sophisticated looking. #1 I like the by-play of the cool and warm...

  22. New Color Tuesday! Introducing Premo Pale Blue-Pt 2

    Now here are some classic Spring color mixes for you! I want to print this out and hang it up on my wall with a Happy Spring! banner. I'm not much of a fan of pastels, but I really like those 3 mixes. I actually think that my room has been each of these colors at one time in my...

  23. New Color Tuesday! Introducing Premo Pale Blue -Pt 1

    This month I'm introducing color mixing with Premo Pale Blue. First, I have to tell you how surprised I was that this color can definitely stand alone in your design! And this color really comes to play in color mixing! Don't let the pastel look of this color fool you- it is a FULL color that can hold it's own...

  24. New Color Tuesday! Introducing Premo Mint - Pt 5

    Okay, all three of these mixes were surprises. I don't know what I was expecting, but they still surprised me. I can finally see a small shift to a green in these three mixes. But the Orange/Mint? It's almost a mustard color! #1 I really kind of like these colors together. It's a happy Summer palette with a bit of...

  25. New Color Tuesday! Introducing Premo Mint Pt 4

    I decided to give some Premo colors that I really like, but seldom use a little love this week. Not really sure why I don't use these colors more, especially in mixes. I love Raw Sienna and Spanish Olive together and Spanish Olive and Alizarin Crimson are super rich together - toss in a little Premo Gold and instant luxury...

  26. New Color Tuesday! Introducing Premo Mint- Pt 3

    Okay, now I'm really trying to challenge, but I also really like those four colors together in a palette! Great colors for a transitional baby to young girl room. #1 What run colors together and I love the pop of texture that the Turquoise Granite provides to the palette, since the Blush and Ecru appear so smoooooth. #2 Another great...

  27. New Color Tuesday! Introducing Premo Mint - Pt 2

    I tried to throw a few soft curveballs this week and Mint tossed them to left field on me. Fuchsia and Mint - I thought it would create a grey-ish WRONG! It created a soft purple that is really quite lovely (for a purple). Sunshine and Mint - I thought would make a yellow-green, but it created a fairly vibrant...

  28. New Color Tuesday! Introducing Premo Mint-Pt 1

    I was really excited to mix with this new Premo Mint color because I wasn't quite sure what it would do in mixes. Was it going to act like a light neutral and just lighten the colors? Was it going to act like a light grey and lighten and neutralize the colors slightly? Was it going to create a green...

  29. New Color Tuesday! Introducing Premo Mauve Pt 4

    Oh I DO love to mix Souffle with Premo for all new color palettes. I love the way the Mauve muted the strong colors of the Souffle. All three of those mixes AND the Mauve are really lovely together as well. #1 An unlikely team of colors, which is probably why I like it so much! #2 Oh! Classic color...

  30. New Color Tuesday! Introducing Premo Mauve Pt 3

    I had a hard time only picking three sub-palettes from this group. Those three mixes together are amazing. And a shoutout to Copper/Copper/Mauve and Orange/Mauve as an amazing palette as well! #1 A cool, soothing palette! Kind of different tones for an Early Spring palette. #2 Oh! This palette makes me smile! Great colors for a mirror frame or to...
