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 - But Do They Get Along? Pt 4

    I have nicknamed this month "Missing May" - WHAT THE HECK HAPPENED TO MAY? I blinked and it's almost gone... So before I go out to the garage, er, my Deluxe Designer Studio in my "attached She Shed" to start my June NCT I figured I better drop my last NCT for May. Pistachio is an interesting color that always...

  2. New Color Tuesday! But Do They Get Along? Pt 2

    This week I mixed 3 of the new Souffle colors with Souffle Canary in 1:1 mixes. Canary can usually hold it's own in mixes, so I wasn't too worried about losing it. I WAS super surprised with the first mix of Mandarin and Canary - I expected something practically glowing from that bright combo, but instead, I got a lovely...

  3. New Color Tuesday! But Do They Get Along? Pt 1

    I've been mixing the new Souffle colors with the Premo Accents Pearls, but I thought it might be a good idea to mix them with their Souffle teammates. So this month, I'm mixing Mandarin, Grape and Raspberry with existing Souffle colors, starting with Cinnamon this week. Now it's no secret that you can Ochre pretty much any color by mixing...

  4. New Color Tuesday- Ohh, These Colors! Pt 5

    Okay, Cornflower is a Super Hero of color - Look at that range of mixed colors it produced? Blue, grey, bronze and green? Whaaaat??? I'm going to take this color SERIOUSLY!! I love the color actually- it doesn't seem to have a black tint to it like I feel most dark blues have. Check out these sub-palettes: #1 Wow! Look...

  5. New Color Tuesday - Ohhh, These Colors! Pt 4

    If you had told me that Raspberry would be my current favorite color, well, I would have laughed at that nonsense. But...it is! I can't stop using it! It can go from intense color to a beautiful subdued range of pinks. To the sub-palettes! #1 Classy transition palette from Summer to Fall right? I want to make a bunch of...

  6. New Color Tuesday - Ohhh These Colors! Pt 3

    I love this new member of the purple family - Souffle Grape. It's very, well purple, but it's not a somber color and look at those amazing mixes! And look at how strong the Grape mix is with Pearl! I'm gonna use all four of these mixes for sure! #1 What a classic combo! And that Gold/Grape mix is going...

  7. New Color Tuesday - Ohhh These Colors! Pt 2

    Multiple shades of Green? YES!!! Metallic greens? YES YES!! Souffle Shamrock is such a fun color, I immediately ran out of the little bit I was given and I'm anxiously awaiting it's release so I can restock. This is going to be a great mix color and an outstanding color on it's own. To the sub-palettes: #1 Oh yeah, I...

  8. New Color Tuesday - Ohhh, these colors! Pt 1

    Once again, I got tricked! When I first got the new Souffle Colors, my eyebrows went up - and once again, I can't live without these colors! This month I'm mixing each of the 5 new colors with 2 Metallics and 2 Souffle colors. Let's see what happens! This week I'm mixing the new Souffle color, Mandarin, with Pearl, Latte...

  9. New Color Tuesday - 18kPt 4

    This week I mixed with what I call my neutrals. There wasn't any really surprises here except how well the Poppy Seed influenced the 18k. That is a beautiful RICH color! Now to the sub-palettes! #1 -a classic combo #2 Ohhh, this is a different take on a classic - i like it! The smooth Latte really grounds the sparkle...

  10. New Color Tuesday-18k Pt 3

    Now we already know that Souffle Turnip can do magical things, but check out Cherry Pie! We now have a Orange/Mango Glitter! And how about Royalty with that cool Brass tone? Guava makes the 18k warmer and richer while Turnip gives us a deep Rose Gold. The mica in these mixes is just lovely. To the Sub-palettes! #1 I like...

  11. New Color Tuesday-18k Pt 2

    Ahh, it's the Souffle blues and greens week - just in time for St. Patrick's Day! (my mother was a Murphy) I'm still amazed that Pistachio, even at a 1:4 ratio, still makes itself known. And who would guess that Jade would almost bow out while Sea Glass definitely holds it own (and I love that metallic green it creates...

  12. New Color Tuesday- 18k Pt 1

    YES, Premo Accents 18K Gold is my current Color Crush! Especially when I mix it with Souffle - any Souffle. I love to see how the Souffle disperses the mica throughout the mixes. This month I'm going to mix with colors kind of in groups. This week it's the natural tones (of Fall maybe?). I love the rich golden color...

  13. New Color Tuesday! All that Glitters Pt 4

    Well, February was over in a flash! Actually, a splash where I live - historical amounts of rain and snow here in SoCal. This week I'm mixing the Glitter Golds with Souffle Sea Glass, which is one of my favorite mix colors because I never know if it's going to go blue or green. I can make a *guess*, but...

  14. New Color Tuesday! All That Glitters Pt 3

    These are interesting! Again, you can clearly see what each of the Glitters bring to the table in terms of warm/coolness. I think the Rose GG/Turnip is my favorite! I kinda want that in nail polish.. To the sub-palettes! #1 Yes! I would totally use this sub palette - especially for jewelry, but I can also envision these colors on...

  15. New Color Tuesday! All That Glitters Pt 2

    Ohhh, I love the greens! Jade has been an underused color in my palettes that has lately risen to the near top (which is permanently occupied by Cinnamon). I love all three of these mixes for their unique color properties - the Rose mix is rich and warm; the Yellow is warm and bright; and the White is icy and...

  16. New Color Tuesday- All That Glitters Pt 1

    I decided I wanted to see just how well the Souffle disburses the glitter in the Premo Accents Glitter Golds since I love how Souffle disburses the mica in the metallics. I started this month with one of my current favorites - Souffle Guava. I got so entranced with the mix I did of Guava and 18K Gold (1G/3-18K) that...

  17. New Color Tuesday-Well HELLO New Year! Pt5

    This is the first mix of the 2019 year - Premo Accents Silver mixed with Souffle Poppy Seed, Guava and Bluestone I wanted to take the last NCT of January to show you two mixes from this month that I thought were just extraordinary. The first is Premo Accents Silver mixed with Souffle Poppy Seed, Guava and Bluestone. I don't...

  18. What Surprised Me About Souffle

    First, as I've said many times, the colors really surprised me when I opened the test box of clay. But after a full day of working with it, I realized how they were designed to go together and pop against each other. They look like custom colors right out of the package. Second, when I was traveling and showing artists...

  19. New Color Tuesday! Well Hello New Year Pt 4

    I love me some 18K Gold, so I decided to add it to my mix list this month. Of course, I used some of my most favorite Souffle mixes with it - Latte, Pumpkin and Guava. Now I DO tend to come and go with Pumpkin, but then I find it again and think to myself, "Why did I use...

  20. 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.  Try it with Souffle Turnip...

  21. 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 to break the new product ...

  22. 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 cooler tone).  So this month...

  23. 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, from class to class.  The...

  24. New Color Tuesday! syn's Favorites from 2018 Pt 3

                              This is actually a recent mix from October.  I continue to be surprised about how strong both Canary and Robins Egg perform in mixes.  And LOOK at the color that they create!  What a perfect new Spring Green! Of course, I also love the Pumpkin/Canary because it's...

  25. 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 color mixing surprises throughout.  Robin...

  26. New Color Tuesday - 2018 Looking Back Pt 1

    I want to start my look back with my favorite mix of the year.  I have mixed these colors over and over and used them whenever I could sneak them in.  They feel both retro and on-trend to me and, of course, greens are always timeless to me!  The fun part of mixing with Souffle is that they are already...

  27. 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 Souffle Lagoon - a quiet...

  28. New Color Tuesday! November Week III

    Hmm, apparently I no longer remember how to tell my fingers to type out the entire month name of November - it took 3 tries. This week is another NCT Winner for me - I swear you can't go wrong mixing with Pistachio.  And Cinnamon is ALWAYS a winner with me! Look at that beautiful soft maize color! I really...

  29. 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 Premo metallics.     Cinnamon...

  30. 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 as well as that soft...
