    New Color Tuesday - Let the Bling Begin!

    Sneak peek! This is going to be one of the most interesting NCT months yet!  I'm going to mix families of colors with the new Premo! Accents Opal.   First up, will be the Purples - you will notice that there are purples from the Premo! line, the Sculpey 3 (S3) line and Souffle .  I've only mixed 4 parts...

    New Color Tuesday! Sparkling Granite

    I have never done a NCT with Premo! Accents Grey Granite before and, frankly, I'm amazed that I haven't! And now I'm really, really glad I did! The mixes proved to be most interesting! I can imagine these mixes being used as interesting accent pieces on boxes or even bezels for faux stones.  The August NCTs will feature the new...

    New Color Tuesday! Sparkling Wine Anyone?

    Again with a color I don't use much! Souffle Bordeaux is such a RICH color and I often bypass it for Turnip.  But today, I decided that it would be our mix color for the week and what a mixer it turned out to be!  When it was mixed with all 3 colors every single one was gorgeous!  I love...

    New Color Tuesday-Sparkling Pestos

    Is it me, or does that title sound like a wine? Sparkling Pestos...$3 a bottle at the Dollar Store or something. LOL  But these indeed, are Sparkling Pestos.  I mixed Sculpey Souffle Pesto with the 3 new Golds for some really pretty results.  I can't decide how I like the Rose Gold mixes - to me I see weathered copper...

    New Color Tuesday! Bring on the Sparklers

    I thought it was rather appropriate in July, the month of hot dogs and sparklers here in the USA, to take a look at the newest Sculpey Sparklers (also made in the USA!) I'm talking about the new glitters, Premo! Accents Rose Gold Glitter (RG), Yellow Gold Glitter (YG) and White Gold Glitter(WG). I thought it might be interesting to...

    New Color Tuesday - Moody Blues

    Wow! I literally have an emotional response to these colors.  I don't know how to explain it, soothing? relaxing?  Since neither of those words are EVER in my physical or emotional catalog, this is pretty new territory for me. I feel like I've been to the spa just looking at these colors - I guess I better change the color...

    New Color Tuesday! Wisteria Neutrals

    So, today we are going to look at what happens when you mix Premo! Wisteria with neutrals - Pearl, Ecru and  Gold (for good measure and I'm always fascinated with Gold). We've learned before (hellow Peacock) that sometimes when you mix out a color with Pearl, you get a surprising end color.  The Peacock Pearl mix  ended up with a pale green when mixed with...

    New Color Tuesday- It's Wine Time!

     Now, I confess - I prefer a good craft-brew beer to wine, but I've been known to have a glass of wine with my neighbors (we do tend to have impromptu gatherings on each others yards from time to time).   I KNOW  these colors aren't the deep rich red colors of many wines, but they still remind me of...

    New Color Tuesday! The Sunset Lingers

    May quit on me before I was done mixing!  So, I'm going to start with a couple of mixes of  Premo! Accents Sunset Pearl with Premo! Accents White Gold and Yellow Gold.  The metallic sheen is so strong, I had to shoot from an oblique angle again so that the colors would really show!  And check out that quick Skinner...

    New Color Tuesday! The Sunset Turns Golden

    For the final May mix (What happened to May!!!?! That was quick..)   Anyway, I can't get 5 words without getting sidetracked apparently. And I did it again, sigh.. That's the original mix colors (18K ad Sunset Pearl) on the left and the 1:1 mix on the right The 1:1 mix on the left and the 8 18K/1SP mix on...

    New Color Tuesday! Sunset Bronzes

    OK, it was pretty much a no-brainer, given my recent fascination with mixing pinks with greens, that I would have to try it with the new Premo! Accents Sunset Pearl. So I broke out my Bright Green Pearl (which is another color I seemed to have forgotten about lately) and did some mixing.  Wow!  The colors are so pearlescent that I...

  12. Syndee Holt

    New Color Tuesday - Blue Steel

    Okay, what is going on here?  I'm a self-proclaimed life-long hater of pink,  Hey, I had curly bright red hair when I as little and my Mother taught me to abhor pink because of it.  I still don't like it, but I sure do like to mix with it!  This Sunset Pearl is amazing to mix with!  This week I...

    New Color Tuesday - Old and New Business

    First, I've got to show you the final panel of colors for last months Passion Flower image.  This was a fun month, because I got to get re-acquainted with the fluorescent clays.  Whenever you need to just pop a color a little brighter, think about reaching for one of these color.  Yellow Fluorescent and Pink Fluorescent are still available from...

    New Color Tuesday! Playing with Purples

    Whow!  Where did this month go?  This is the final posting for April (I almost wrote March- what the heck happened to THAT month?).  I will be in FLA hanging with Alice Stroppel when this posts and getting ready to drive to Fandango. Let's get to it! First, one of my typical left turns, I wanted to see what happened...

    New Color Tuesday! Rich Woods

    Wow, Wow, Wow!  I *may* have mixed my all-time favorite color.  I'm mixing for the wooden fence background of the passion flower photo and I came up with really rich red-browns that almost like a non-metallic copper.                   As an old photo retoucher, I love the shadow flesh colors and these remind...

    New Color Tuesday (For Reals)

    So let's talk about the golds.  Again, we did a little of this mixing for the Moroccan sets, but this time I'm punching it up with Premo! Accents Yellow Fluorescent.  Even though I love the richness of the color mixes with just the Cad Yellow (CY) and the Raw Sienna (RS), I really like the little punch of brightness that...

    New Color Tuesday Bonus Monday

    I know, I know - it's NOT Tuesday, but I was so excited that I had to share this before tomorrow.  Remember last month when I mixed Pink Fluorescent with Wasabi and was shocked at the beautiful orange tints?             Well, I got my hands on some Premo! Accents Bright Green Pearl (yet ANOTHER color...

    New Color Tuesday! The Greens

    Well, well, well, I never cease to surprise myself on how many color tangents I can send myself off on.  I *knew* the colors this month were going to be a challenge and I *knew* I was probably going to enlist the aid of the fluorescents, but I had NO idea I would get so carried away (AGAIN) with the...

    New Color Tuesday! The Final Color Mixes

      Yay!  So let's get right to it!  I've mixed this month's color palette in BOTH Souffle and Premo for you.  I've had a lot of fun taking my (usual) left turns into creating totally unrelated mixes and had some startling (to me, at least) mix combos (I still can't get over that Premo! Blush/Wasabi mix! Love those colors and...

    New Color Tuesday! Jungle Mixes

      So today, I'm going to wrap up the individual color mixes so that next week I can present the final color palette mixes for BOTH Premo! and Souffle.       The green in the color swatch is pretty much straight Premo! Jungle, so I decided to mix Jungle with a couple of the metallics 1:1 to see what...

    New Color Tuesday! The Sunset Pinks

    Sunset colors The sunset pinks are some of the most amazing colors - they are also some of the most short-lived in the sunset.  At my beach, they tend to tint the clouds floating away from the sunset and only right after the sun has finally set - may for 5 minutes or so. The warmer  the air, the...

    New Color Tuesday - Opposites Attract

    I'm more than ready to call it quits with this cold/flu. Seriously, it's been two weeks already and my nose is still running and my cough will not go away.  It's not keeping me from the clay table though!  I discovered something pretty cool this week when working through my new obsession with Premo! Blush.  I decided to do some...

    New Color Tuesday: The Golden Sunset Colors

    First, I need to say thanks to the astute reader who pointed out that in my Moroccan final mix, I mistakenly noted Cad Blue instead of Cobalt Blue.  I've corrected the blog post.  If you had downloaded the pdf, I've corrected it also.  And here I was so proud of myself for FINALLY learning to spell Fuchsia and calling it...

    New Color Tuesday! 6 Shades of Sunshine

    I was going to put this with last weeks Premo! Cad Yellow/Fuchsia mixes, but I thought it would be a lot to look at.  So I decided to present these beautiful colors in their own week. I've added Ecru to the mix this week.  As I've discovered, Ecru doesn't just soften a color mix out, it effects the density of...

    New Color Tuesday - The Tropical Pinks

    I'm still working on the sunset colors here and I'm aiming for those orange colors there this week.  I also thought it would be fun to mix Premo!  Cad Yellow with Premo!  Fuchsia to whip up all kinds of tropical colors!  (actually, what I need to do is finally learn to spell Fuchsia the first time I type it!) I...

    New Color Tuesday-Endless Summer

        I realized that I had really trashed the color Yellow last month and it was weighing on my little clay heart, so I had originally decided to mix with Yellow this month.  Then the first mixes I did, I realized were sunset colors.  Well, hey. I take sunset photos.  So why not pull colors out of a photo...

    New Color Tuesday: The Moroccan Wrapup

    UPDATE:  The blue hue has been changed to the correct name,  Cobalt Blue! Welcome to NCT on Thursday. (see? If I use only the initials for New Color Tuesday, it can be used for a special Thursday edition!) Alright, here are my picks for the Moroccan palette.  I wasn't originally a fan of the minty green on the top right...

    New Color Tuesday Part II: The Moroccan Souffle

    I felt like I had rather slighted the Souffle clays when I nonchalantly mentioned at the beginning of the month that I didn't need to make mix charts for the Souffle colors because they WERE the Moroccan colors already.  They are jewely colors right out of the package.  But I decided to do a color palette with them and then...

    New Color Tuesday Part I: The Moroccan Blues

    (I typed that title and immediately tried to wrap my head around what Moroccan blues music would sound like. Still got the head tilted on that one!) This is going to be a busy week for the NCT blog.  Not only am I presenting the last of the color groups for the Moroccan theme, but I'm also going to show...

    New Color Tuesday! The Moroccan Greens

    I'm love me some greens!  These were really fun, but I have to say that I didn't get any color really that I may like better than Premo! Spanish Olive.  I also have a little bonus Bright Green Pearl mix at the end of this.  I also have to say bear with me as I get used to the new...
