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! 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 a warm/orangish undertone to it. ...

  2. New Color Tuesday! Pumpkin Souffle Pt 3

    I admit it, I've become obsessed with these 3 mix colors.  I've used them in at least 2 projects and I have more of the blends sitting in my travel bag, ready to go to Kansas City and Chicago!  This month has triggered me to use blended colors for EVERYTHING.  That Pumpkin/Pistachio 1:1 makes a great golden color in Souffle. ...

  3. 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 on a seasonal thing- that...

  4. New Color Tuesday! Pumpkin Souffle

    Well it's October so, of course, I had to feature Pumpkin in the mixes this month!  I also was intrigued to see what I would get and I wasn't disappointed - I got some of the biggest ranges of colors yet! I started this month's mixes off by adding the 1:1 color of Canary - actually I started with several...

  5. New Color Tuesday! These Gonna Be Some Greens Pt 4

    I've become quite fascinated with Souffle Canary again. It can really hold it's own in a mix, even with Premo Accents Bright Green Pearl. I love, love the 1:1 mix of these two colors as well - it's a perfect bridge between yellow and green.  And of course, I already love Latte and Canary together to mix the Key Lime...

  6. New Color Tuesday! These Gonna Be Some Greens Pt3

    I'm beginning to think that Souffle Turnip is a magical color.  First, it creates that ultraviolet blue color when mixed with Premo Accent Peacock and it even plays nicely with Bright Green Pearl! I like this beginning color palette of Bright Green Pearl, Souffle Bluestone, Cinnamon and Turnip. (Yes, I would like any palette with Bluestone and Cinnamon).  It's a...

  7. New Color Tuesday! These Gonna Be Some Greens PT 2

    I know, technically these are NOT greens in the mixes, but LOOOOK at how luscious those colors are! That Bright Green Pearl and Cinnamon mix is all kinds of skanky brown/green and I love it! The same with the Bluestone/Cinnamon - it's like a dark dust bunny brown but I really like it.  Put that color together with Souffle Igloo...

  8. New Color Tuesday! These Gonna be Some Greens

    ARgh! Second Monday caught me unaware that it's ACTUALLY Tuesday! I'm using Premo Accents Bright Green Pearl as the standard color in my mixes this month, so these gonna be some greens!  Wheee... I decided to play it a little safe and mix my 3 palette colors (Brt. Green Pearl, Peacock Pearl and Graphite) with Premo Accents Gold.  Loooook at...

  9. New Color Tuesday! There is a Little Peacock in All of Us Pt4

    This is possibly one of my most favorite mixes of the year (do I say that all the time?) Not only did I start with 4 colors that are probably my most favorite Premo colors, but the 1:1 mixes are so rich! Premo Accents Bronze was my go-to color for a long time and then I suddenly developed a color...

  10. New Color Tuesday! There Is a Little Peacock in All of Us Pt 3

    I love the bright colors in this palette! They aren't a typical combination of colors, but I think they really work. I especially love the Peacock, Bright Green Pearl and Magenta Pearl together - maybe with a little kick of White or Black? Bright Copper Blended Clays Now to the sub-palettes: #1 This is my favorite - it's both rich...

  11. New Color Tuesday! There Is a Little Peacock in All of Us

    Ahh, now we are SOLIDLY in my favorite color range - a mid-century modern color palette of greens and golds. I'm also discovering that Premo Accents Graphite pretty much fits in any palette - much more so than just black.  I suspect that Premo Accents Copper could be one of those "fits all" colors, but it is not as dramatic...

  12. New Color Tuesday! There's a Little Peacock in All of Us

    Right? At least we like to *think* that there is a little Peacock in all of us, showing our glory to the world..not peaking at our reflections in shiny car doors.. This month, I'm featuring Premo and Premo Accent mixes.  Yes! I set down my beloved Souffle  for these 4 weeks of mixes. Peacock is going to be my "featured...

  13. New Color Tuesday! My Magical Bluestone Pt 5

    While I think that Souffle Bluestone is the wild card of the Souffle family, Turnip comes sauntering in this week to remind me that it can do some crazy tricks as well.  For instance, check out that 1:1 mix with Jade - that is seriously a gorgeous color.  I was expecting mud and I got a...Midnight Blue? Deep Purple?  I...

  14. New Color Tuesday! My Magical Bluestone Pt 4

    I forget about how much I like Souffle Latte from time to time.  Then once I remember, I can't quite using it!  I love these three basic colors in the top trio - Bluestone, Pistachio, Jade.  Jade is one of my more recent  Color Crush, but Bluestone was my very first Souffle Color Crush.  I clearly remember taking the plastic...

  15. New Color Tuesday! My Magical Bluestone Pt 3

                                          No lie, this mix starts with 3 of my favorite Souffle colors: Bluestone, Guava and Cinnamon. ALL the Souffle colors are amazing, but these three are such workhorses for me.  I love, love the 1:1 mixes as well as the actual...

  16. New Color Tuesday! My Magical Bluestone Pt 2

                                          I won't lie, I love me some  GREENS and I got some purty ones this week!  There are so many color palette combos with these seven colors, it hurts my head to think about them!  I have TWO wild cards in this...

  17. New Color Tuesday! My Magical Bluestone Pt 1

    I'm home for 2 whole days before I take off to teach in Dallas.  The class I took with Claire Maunsell in Nanaimo, Victoria B.C. was just as amazing as I could have hoped for.  I AM happy to be home with internet - trying to drive around new cities with no navigation is a nightmare.  And no one has...

  18. New Color Tuesday! What About White? Pt 4

    Ok, I know it's New Color Tuesday on a Wednesday.  Out of country travel and surprise non-connectivity is a recipe to make syndee VERY VERY cranky! Anyway, I'm home (for 2 days) and here we go with the last mix of June.  Souffle Bluestone is one of my favorite Souffle colors because it so stands on its own.  In a...

  19. New Color Tuesday! What About White? Pt 3

    Another week another small evolution on my NCT format!  But I have to say, I think that this palette is my winner for this year's favorite palette! Granted there are no eye/mind shattering radical mix colors , but I like all these colors and these mixes- in fact, I like the entire palette! Let's look at the original colors along...

  20. New Color Tuesday! What About White? Pt 2

    My adventure with Igloo continues..  and I've decided to put all the palettes together so that they stay sorted correctly (THANKS ANNA!)  This is a fun palette because the starter colors look very nautical, until you add the pop of Canary and, of course, I've never met a green color I didn't like!   Canary can really hold it's own in...

  21. New Color Tuesday! What About White?

    I realized in last month that in all the years I've done NCT that I've never featured White as a mix color.  So this month, Igloo is my featured color-and, as usual, there were some surprises along the way.  I started with a kind of nautical palette of  Souffle Sea Glass, Igloo and Lagoon, but I threw in Premo Accents...

    Mixing Colors Technique Read on to learn how to make some of our favorite clay color mixes! Dream it, create it! Maggie Maggio’s Color Mixing Map is the key to color mixing using premo! Sculpey. Simple and straight forward, the map uses three basic premo! colors: Zinc Yellow, Cobalt Blue and Fuchsia. premo! is the perfect mixing clay because the...

  23. New Color Tuesday! Another Clay Crush Pt 5

    Me Likey!  These are some different greens from the usual verdant grass green. That first mix of Guava and Bright Green Pearl looks like brass!  The middle mix is a lovely Lime Green mix with a hint of metallics in hit.  the 3 base colors with the addition of the Bright Green Pearl is an awesome palette too!  Kind of...

  24. New Color Tuesday! Another Clay Crush Pt 4

    I won't deny it - warm, bright colors are my Happy Place - and this weeks mixes make me very, very HAPPY. I can see myself using all three of these mixes often - I love those two golden mixes (Cinnamon/Canary 1:4 is still my favorite Maize mix though).  And I really kind of like that Turnip/Canary mix as a...

  25. New Color Tuesday! Another Clay Crush Pt 3

    I know, CRAZY right?  I just triple checked my master photo to make sure that I had these laid out correctly.  I expect one or, maybe two, surprise mixes, but not ALL THREE!   And Souffle Sea Glass?  Apparently, it's as weird as it's Premo counterpart Peacock Pearl!  You NEVER know what the mixes will be with these two. What I...

  26. New Color Tuesday! Another Clay Crush Pt 2

    Now this was an interesting color palette when I teamed these cool Souffle colors with Premo! Accents Gold - I got a mid-century modern color palette in the 1:1 mixes and some of the sub palettes! (and I LOVE me some mid-century modern). First off, that 1:1 mix of Guava and Gold make a warm, rich gold that reminds me of...

  27. New Color Tuesday! Another Clay Crush Pt 1

    Yeah, I admit it, I get obsessed with a color from time to time (okay, ALL THE TIME).  Right now it's Souffle Guava - a regular pink in the package that somehow transforms to a warm pink when cured (although it doesn't actually change color).  And look how nice it looks with the  18% grey background.  I'm also currently obsessed with...

  28. New Color Tuesday - April is a Little Jaded Pt 4

    Ah now, we have some Spring/Summer colors here! I am fascinated at how boldly Souffle Canary mixes with other colors.  And I have a new color crush - Guava.  In the package it looks a little to blah pink, but it's magic once it's baked.  I don't think it shifts color, but it like solidifies maybe???? To this really nice...

  29. New Color Tuesday! April is a Little Jaded Pt 3

    Wow, I didn't know when I picked that title that April would actually be the "January 96th".  My heart goes out to all those caught up in the huge storms this week!  It really makes those of us in the sunshine states feel guilty (like, why am I inside writing on my computer when I should be outside?). Well, this...

  30. New Color Tuesday! April is a Little Jaded Pt 2

    The week was an interesting experiment.  I took the three Souffle colors that have captured my Squirrel!-like attention lately and mixed them with Premo Accents Silver (another color that I tend to forget about). All three of the mixes are beautiful and elegant.  The Silver toned down the "hey look at me" portion of the Souffle color and made it...
