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! A (Premo) Spanish Olive in the Mix Pt 1

    Well a new year (new decade!) and a new look for NCT! ANNNNDDD believe it or not, this is an all Premo mix month - I didn't even sneak my beloved Souffle in ONCE!! (Heck, I can hardly believe it. ) Anyway, I had a bar of clay fall from the shelf and it was Spanish Olive. I looooove this...

  2. New Color Tuesday! Best of 2019 Pt 5 (All Souffle 1:1 Mixes Featuring Pistachio)

    Wow, last NCT post for the year and the DECADE! Six years of NCTs and there are still colors to mix!! Souffle Pistachio is my Wild Card Mixer - You just never know what color it's going to create. I'm in love with that Mandarin/Pistachio rich Maize color, but I like that kind of watermelon color created by the Souffle...

  3. New Color Tuesday-2019 Review Pt 4

    I thought I would have some nice holiday colors today, since it's Christmas Eve and the third eve of Hanukkah and we just celebrated the Winter Solstice a couple of days ago! This palette is from this September, when we were all just starting to get into the Fall Feeling! And it's allllll my favorite, Souffle! First, I have to...

  4. New Color Tuesday - 2019 Review Pt 3

    I bet you can see why I included this mix from June. Yes, I love that deep bronze color that the Bronze/Shamrock combo created. I kind of shocked me when I saw it start blending to that color in the pasta machine. But I was also surprised that Cornflower and Shamrock darn near replicates Souffle Sea Glass. Maybe a tad...

  5. New Color Tuesday 2019 Roundup Pt 2

    THIS IS MY FAVORITE PALLET FOR 2019! That #1 mix has been mixed and remixed at least twice and used to create necklaces, bracelets. I love these colors. You really can't see in the photos but there is a soft sheen in all the mix colors from the Copper. when you mix a Souffle color 1:1 with a Premo metallic...

  6. New Color Tuesday! My Favorite Things Pt 1

    I love doing December NCT because I get to look back through the year and pick my favorites. This year, I get to pick FIVE! I'm not posting these in any particular order by date or preference (although you will certainly know which one is my favorite!). I picked this palette because I love, love that Canary/Cornflower mix. It's saucy...

  7. New Color Tuesday-Concrete Crazy Pt 4

    The last NCT Mix for the year this week. (Next month I get to pick my 4 favorites from the year!) This weeks mix helped me solve a little clay riddle - I love Shamrock and Sea Glass together, but what other colors can I use in the mix? #1 Yay! Look at how well Concrete plays with my two...

  8. 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 the little pop of metallic...

  9. 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 worktable. Concrete is an especially...

  10. 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 not a huge fan of...

  11. 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 the sub-palettes: #1 ANOTHER favorite...

  12. 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 mid-century feel to me and...

  13. 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, Robin Egg and Grape combined...

  14. 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 mixes. I'm kind of obsessed...

  15. 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 obvious, but I'm constantly surprised...

  16. 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 Canary and Grape make a...

  17. 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 saturated Souffle Shamrock held its...

  18. 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 them - with a little...

  19. 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 darker colors. And as always...

  20. 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 Pearls and Souffle. The subtle...

  21. 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 a warm palette. Once I...

  22. 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.. Anyway, White Gold Glitter is...

  23. 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 Pearl. To the sub-palettes: #1...

  24. New Color Tuesday! New Reds and Blues Pt 3

    Ohhh, this is one of my favorite mixes of the year so far! I love, love all those 1:2 mixes with Gold, but ESPECIALLY the Souffle Raspberry 1:2 with the Gold. It is such a happy little orange with the soft glow of the mica in it. But I also love the deeper orange of the Cayenne/Gold mix and the...

  25. New Color Tuesday! New Reds and Blues Pt 2

    It's no secret that I love the Premo Accents Copper color (pssst! try it with Premo Accents Grey Granite!) Wow! Did I get some interesting and unusual colors this week and I love them all! These colors are all mix with ONE part of the blue/red color and TWO parts of the Copper color. That Cayenne/Copper mix is a luscious...

  26. New Color Tuesday! New Reds and Blues Pt 1

    We have a new red and a blue in BOTH Premo and Souffle, so I thought it would be appropriate this month of red, white and blue to do some mixing with them! I started with Silver this week, since mixing with White was just too...easy. LOL These are all mixes with ONE part of the red or blue and...

  27. New Color Tuesday! I'm So Mixed UP! Pt 4

    I can't get over how much I love this Raspberry color! It's an interesting mixer color for sure! But I really love it on it's own, especially with Igloo - such a clean, crisp combo! #1 That Shamrock 2:1 with Raspberry is an interesting green that reminds me of Premo Jungle. I love it with the peachy color of the...

  28. New Color Tuesday! I'm so Mixed UP! Pt 3

    Shamrock is rapidly becoming one of my top favorite colors (as opposed to JUST a favorite color). Look at those mixes! Look at that Bronze/Shamrock mix - that is a killer color! All these mixes are 1 part Shamrock to 2 parts of the mix color. #1 I love Bronze combined with a cool color like the Cornflower. The Shamrock/Sea...

  29. New Color Tuesday! I'm So Mixed UP Pt 2

    Cornflower is such a fascinating color to me. I never quite know what I'm going to get when I mix it - for instance, Canary and Cornflower make...GREEN? Really?? Sub-palettes! #1 I really like this combo - Canary adds the POP to the trio. I love the two mixed colors together. #2 Ohh, a classic cool palette that is calming...

  30. New Color Tuesday!I'm So Mixed UP! Pt 1

    This month I'm exploring how some of the new Souffle colors mix with BOTH the Premo metallics and the original Souffle colors. I chose to mix with 1 part of the selected color (Grape this week) to 2 parts of the mix colors (Bronze, Silver and Canary this week) - instead of my usual 1:1 mixes. Already I've had a...
