Syndee Holt

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?

  1. 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...

  2. 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...

  3. 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...

  4. New Color Tuesday! Introducing Premo Mauve Pt 2

    Well, THIS week sure brought the surprises! We now have a Lavender Granite, a Blush Crème and a New Leather. Seriously, Wasabi NEVER fails to throw a wild color in a mix, but I sure was NOT expecting this rich, warm light brown mix! And these sub-palettes? Well, I just can't pick a favorite (but I'm leaning to #2). #1...

  5. New Color Tuesday! Introducing Premo Mauve Pt 1

    Now I am the first one to admit (scream from the rooftops actually) that I am NOT a fan of PINK. But as a redhead, I *could* wear Mauve. But I struggled a bit with what to wear it with - Ivory? Black? Bluejeans? So I KNEW this month was going to be a challenge for me! I purposely tried...

  6. New Color Tuesday! Introducing Premo™ Turquoise Granite- Pt 4

    Of course I had to throw a little of my beloved Sculpey Soufflé™ into the mixes! The texture of the Soufflé really adds to the illusion of stone in the marbled mixes as well. #1 Ohhhh Latte! I love this color with the TG. And the mix? Wow, it looks like sandstone mixed into the granite! #2 This is a...

  7. Got Scrap?

    First of all, I don’t think of scrap clay as SCRAP.  I usually think of it as “Round Two” of my designs. And Sometimes, I even try to purposely create scrap clay – that’s a lot harder than it sounds actually! This is a 1:1 mix of these 2 colors for a NCT post. Every month when I go through...

  8. New Color Tuesday! Introducing Premo™ Turquoise Granite- Pt 3

    Now here is an interesting and diverse combination of colors that have created some equally interesting marbled mixes. And each color adds its own visual texture to the mixes as well. From these mixes I can tell that Purple Pearl (PP) and Turquoise Granite (TG) are going to make a kind of Violet Granite (if there is such a thing...

  9. New Color Tuesday! Introducing Premo™ Turquoise Granite- Pt 2

    These three colors mixed into the marble really nicely - giving us both the marble and a change of color for the Turquoise Granite. Wow! Pearl added a frosty look to the Turquoise Granite in the marble mix. I love the soft moss green color that the Antique Gold created in that marble mix. That Peacock Pearl is such a...

  10. My Love Letter to Etch n' Pearls

    If you know me, you know that I love the Sculpey Tools™ Etch n’ Pearls.  Those odd little metal pokey things that are sold in a set of 3. Most of us bought them before we really even knew what they did – besides poke holes. But it is the magical cupped end that is really the workhorse of our...

  11. New Color Tuesday! Introducing Premo™ Turquoise Granite- Pt 1

    It's a New Year. It's a New Color. It's a New Mix - a MARBLED mix! But only for this month...well, maybe just this month.. As I started to make the first couple of mixes, I was so amazed at the gorgeous marbling happening that I was cutting off small pieces to bake and save when I realized that YOU...

  12. New Color Tuesday-syn's 2020 Favorite Mixes - Pt 5

    September 2020 NCT mixes I thought this palette would be perfect for the end of December when we are all looking forward to Spring. These seem to be some really nice early Spring colors to me. I think that the Premo Mustard mixed to make these original cool colors warmer and more hopeful - just like Spring! My mix scraps...

  13. New Color Tuesday - syn's 2020 Picks - Pt 4

    November 2020 This all- Soufflé palette was a close second as my favorite palette of the year. The cheerful exuberance of the entire palette just makes me smile. And I'm still surprised that Orange OWNED Wasabi in a mix. I really like that color and it surprisingly goes with just about any color combination you could make with this palette...

  14. New Color Tuesday - syn's 2020 Picks - Pt 3

    August 2020 Soufflé Mixes I know, ME calling out some neutral(ish) mixes as some of my favorites? It can happen. Especially when all 3 mixes are in a palette- I like the calming warmth of the palette. A little Premo Copper or Soufflé Poppy Seed to make them pop and Wow! They just remind me of a walk on a...

  15. New Color Tuesday - syn's 2020 Picks - Pt 2

    June NCT 2020 Souffle Mixes Let's have a little flashback to Summer. First of all, I kinda dig the 3 main Souffle mix colors together - Latte, Turnip and Cornflower. Toss a dash of Igloo, maybe a tiny bit of Poppy Seed? That would be fun! I was REALLY surprised that Canary yielded such lovely SOFT color mixes. OF course...

  16. New Color Tuesday- syn's 2020 Picks

    April 2020 NCT I'm not messing around - I'm putting my most favorite mix of the year up right NOW! Of course, I know that Souffle Cinnamon will ochre pretty much any color, but the combination of these three colors together. Well, that was pretty much magic to my eyes. And Ohhh, did I have fun with it! You can...

  17. New Color Tuesday! A Classic Fall Color Palette-Pt. 4

    Yes, I have the best for the last palette! I love ALL these colors together. That basic palette of Cayenne, Wasabi, Turquoise and Orange is one of my favorite bright palettes. And those mixes? Yum! #1 This is a great end of Summer palette, then add the Cayenne for Fall! #2 Cayenne really kicks these two mixes up a notch...

  18. New Color Tuesday! A Classic Fall Color Palette-Pt. 3

    I decided to throw Sculpey Premo™ Orange a curveball this week (well, technically 3 curveballs) by mixing it with some of the Sculpey Premo™ metallic and glitter clays. I have to say, Orange held its own! I really like that Galaxy/Orange green mix and the Graphite/Orange is a really rich antique brass color. #1 Okay, I would love a coat...

  19. New Color Tuesday! A Classic Fall Palette - Pt 2

    Wow! I am really excited by the surprises that Sculpey Premo™ Orange keeps showing me! Look at those beautiful mix colors!! That will be my go-to Fall palette. #1 A really interesting take on the traditional Fall colors- maybe sort of moving towards Winter? If I could add a fourth color, I would add that Bronze/Orange mix as well. #2...

  20. New Color Tuesday! A Fall Harvest of Color Mixes-Pt 1

    Orange always seems to be a forgotten color in my clay palettes and I don't know why - I like orange. And what better way to launch a month of Fall Harvest colors than mixing with Orange? Some surprises? Maybe... for instance, look at the Bright Green Pearl/Orange mix - that is an awesome orange ochre color. Way to surprise...

  21. New Color Tuesday! Introducing Premo Soufflé™ Midnight Blue- Pt 4

    I know it is hard to really see the metallic mixes in photo, but you just have to try these 3 mixes when you get your Midnight Blue! That Copper mix? Looks like a grey, but with warm, almost red, highlights! The 18K Gold mixretains the warm golden highlights, while the Silver mix has the icy metallic flakes. I would...

  22. New Color Tuesday! Introducing new Premo Soufflé™ Midnight Blue- Pt 3

    I wasn't expected Wild Cards with this trio of Soufflé colors, but I sure got a couple of surprises! The Jade mix is a really nice teal color, right? The Raspberry mix is way more purplish than I expected, but I was secretly pleased! And Cinnamon? Wow! What a nice warm brown tone this is! #1 This is a really...

  23. New Color Tuesday! Introducing new Premo Soufflé™ Midnight Blue- Pt 2

    Last week was Neutrals, this week is Wild Cards! And actually, these turned out about how I expected them to. That Shamrock mix looks like a really nice cool jungle green. The Turnip mix is just about what I envisioned when I decided to mix them. Of course, the Pistachio mix is my favorite - its not warm, its not...

  24. New Color Tuesday! Introducing Premo Soufflé™ Midnight Blue- Pt 1

    Now Midnight Blue is just a luscious color all on its own , but I decided to start with the basics to mix with the new Premo Soufflé™ Midnight Blue. So I've mixed with Soufflé Concrete, Igloo and Latte. There should have been little or no surprises here, but my eyebrows raised on every mix. First, that Concrete mix? What...

  25. New Color Tuesday! Introducing Sculpey Premo™ Mustard- Pt 5

    I'm so happy I get a bonus mix week this month, because-honestly-I could have mixed several more palettes this month! First, can I comment on the unexpected (at least to me) palette combo of Sculpey Premo™ White, Spanish Olive and Pomegranate? Great kitchen decor colors, planter decor - oh my.. #1 Yep, this is a killer color palette as well...

  26. New Color Tuesday! Introducing Sculpey Premo™ Mustard- Pt. 4

    Unexpected colors in these mixes is what keeps me coming back to my clay table each month to mix these NCTs. This month was SUPER fun for me. Who would have guessed that Sculpey Premo™ Slate and Mustard 1:1 would make a lovely soft sage GREEN? I expected a green tone with the Sculpey Premo™ Turquoise, but not the Slate...

  27. New Color Tuesday! Introducing Sculpey Premo™ Mustard-Pt 3

    As we slowly transition into Fall, my color palettes are slowing transitioning as well - are yours? Of course, Sculpey Premo™ Wasabi is one of my favorite mix colors and I was curious to see what would happen with the two mica clays as well. I'm quite happy with both of those mixes as well - that Bronze/Mustard mix is...

  28. New Color Tuesday! Introducing Premo Mustard Pt 2

    I know right? I am mixing with ALL Premo. I can't help it.. I love this new Sculpey Premo™ Mustard color. Who knew that if you mixed Sculpey Premo™ Wisteria and Mustard that you would get a flesh-type color? I expected a grey-tone and, BOY, was I surprised! #1 This is an unusual palette, but I could see using it...

  29. New Color Tuesday! Introducing Premo Mustard Pt 1

    Introducing (yet ANOTHER) new Premo color coming SOON! This is Premo Mustard.. I have to say, this was one of my most favorite NCT mix months EVER. Thank goodness that it's a 5 Tuesday month because there were sooo many mixes I wanted to try. This color just came through with every single mix I threw at it. Of course...

  30. New Color Tuesday! Summer Sea Glass Pt 4

    Sea Glass is back! I'm transitioning here to a late Summer/early Fall palette. As a pro photographer for over 40 years, I'm rather responsive to natural lighting and the tracking of the seasons in outdoor light. #1 Oh yes, all 3 of these look so good together. Latte is a great mix color to help bring a diverse group of...
