    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 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! 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: 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! 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...

    New Color Tuesday! The Moroccan Reds

    I know, I know, there are also oranges and yellows.  The Moroccan Warm Tones then?  I love every single color in this palette.  I started with Premo! Raw Sienna then mixed with Premo! Cad Red, Orange and Cad Yellow.  I"m going to split each color mix out individually, so let's get started shall we?           The...

    New Color Tuesday: The Marsalas

    Pantone has announced that the Color of the Year for 2015 is Marsala, which is a gorgeous color that goes so well with so many different color palettes.  Plus, it can be metallic or non-metallic.  If you don't like to mix colors, Premo! Accents Bronze, right out of the package is a pretty darn close match.  And as I discovered...

    New Color Tuesday -Green Gets the Blues

    Premo! Green and Ultramarine Blue Premo! Green, Ultramarine Blue and Turquoise For my final Green mix I decided to try some blues.  I expected to produce some really pretty teals and greens, but not so much with the Ultramarine Blue.  Since I've been on such a Turquoise kick, I added a little Turquoise into the mix.  Now THERE are...

    New Color Tuesday - Holiday Mints

    Well, hey!  This jolly old Premo! Green is proving to be a very interesting color.  I thought I would do a mix with Premo! White to see how "minty" it would become, since there are so many mint colored textiles appearing on the Spring fashion runways. I thin that each of these versions is a very nice color on it's...

    New Color Tuesday - Down the Rabbit Hole (again..)

    I asked, you responded. I asked what color to mix for December and you responded "blues and greens".  I immediately thought, "Oh, in search of the perfect teal.."  Now, I was fully aware that the search would lead me down a rabbit hole, filled with beautiful blues, greens, turquoise, even mints.  What I didn't realize was how far I was...

    New Color Tuesday! Whaaaaat?

    First, I'm  happy to report that I have full use of all 10 fingers now for typing.  I graduated from a cast to a brace on my left hand yesterday.  First thing I'm going to do at the clay table is take the brace off and roll a ball of clay in my palms.  I think that will be about...

    New Color Tuesday - the Neutrals

    It's always a challenge for me to find the right neutral for my project.  Sculpey Souffle has wonderful neutrals with Concrete for a cool neutral and Sandcastle and Latte for warm neutrals.  I generally tend to grab the Latte for my warm neutral, but lately I'm finding that the Sandcastle is a gorgeous mixing color. (I just mixed Sandcastle with...

    New Color Tuesday- With 2 Olives Please

    When I was in Spain, I could have lived on ham, bread and olives.  In fact, I think I tried to! Big olives, tiny olives, most of them green olives.  This  Premo! Spanish Olive  color makes me crave olives!  So I wanted to see what would happen when I mixed it with Premo! Accents Copper. Of course, mixing a green...

    Orange You Glad It's New Color Tuesday?

    Ok, sorry for the bad pun in the title, but I couldn't help it! I'm excited this week, this is like TWO uncharted territories for me - Premo! Accents Copper and Premo! Orange.  I don't mix a lot with orange, other than maybe a little yellow or white.  I love the mixes with Copper, they are subtle (which is a...

    New Color Tuesday! It's All About Copper

    So I've just unpacked my clothing from my trip to the fantastic Arizona Polymer Clay Guild retreat in Prescott (more on that later!).  My clay stuff is waiting for me to unpack in the garage.  It was funny when I crossed the state line back into California, they always have a check station to see if you are bringing in...

    New Color Tuesday: Lagoon and Metallics

    By now you know that I tend to get fascinated with a color and go crazy with it for a couple of days (or weeks) before the next infatuation.  So far, my longest infatuation is with Sculpey Soufflé Bluestone, but as usual, I've run out of it.  So, look what magically appeared on my worktable...18k Gold.  Normally, I'm a retro...

    New Color Tuesday: The Purples

    I don't consider myself a fan of purple.  Wait, my whole front yard is purple.  I used to have a purple velvet chair.  OKAY, *maybe* I am a small fan of purple.  I definitely don't like pink.  I'm a redhead and redheads didn't wear pink in my day. ( I can hear my son's hilarious old man voice right now...

    New Color Tuesday- White or Off-White?

    I don't know about you, but I seem to often be puzzling whether to add White (Igloo in Souffle-speak) or Off-White (Ecru in Premo-land, Sandcastle in Souffle-speak) to create my lighter intensity of a color. Generally, I feel that adding the White tone will create a more pastel effect, while adding the Off-White tone will create a softer, lighter version...

    New Color Tuesday! Lagoons and Sandcastle

    I decided that I had been overlooking color mixing with the neutrals, so this month Lagoon is going to be mixing with both Sandcastle and Igloo.  I don't know about you, but it's often a hard decision for me to create a lighter color with a white or an off white.  So let's see them on their own and then...

    New Color Tuesday! A Sea Adventure

    Okay, it's not rocket science to guess that if you mix Pistachio with Lagoon, you are going to get some gorgeous sea colors.  I was surprised that they weren't more on the blue side than they are.  That Pistachio is a pretty strong color!   So let's say goodbye to our Pistachio and say hello to September's mix color...

    New Color Tuesday!

    Today we are saying goodbye to our " color of the month", Mai Tai, and introducing our new "color of the month" for August, Pistachio!  So why not see what they do when mixed?  My first thought was that they mixed to "cookie colors" (you know the colors of fresh baked cookies...yummmm).  Then I went a leetle further with the...

    New Color Tuesday! The Red Zone

    So today, we are going to get a quick 2fer with Souffle Mai Tai mixing with Turnip and So 80's.  They are all in the same red family, but they created some pretty cool hues! Speaking of hues, I think that the Turnip mixes look like warm hues and the So 80's mixes look like cool hues.  Agree?

    New Color Tuesday! Let's Do Mai Tais..

    In honor of the Summer season, let's do Mai Tais!  Sculpey Souffle Mai Tai mixes that is! The Sculpey Soufflé Mai Tai is a little bit of a mystery to me.  When I roll a piece out and look at it carefully in the light, I swear I see a mica sheen in there..but then again I thought I saw...

    Sculpey Soufflé Cowboy Turns Golden

    Sculpey Soufflé Cowboy is one of my favorite colors.  It's such a nice neutral brown - it's not orange, it's not magenta, it's just what it advertises - Cowboy - a straight up color. It was one of my obsessive colors for several weeks, only to be replaced by Latte (or was it Sea Glass? LOL).  Anyway, it's still at...

    New Color Tuesday! Sculpey Soufflé Goes Metal

    This week Premo! Gold meets Sculpey Soufflé Turnip (one of my favorite colors). Not only does it yield a rather surprising Copper color, but the partial mix is gorgeous also! So far the Sculpey Soufflé colors that I've become facinated with are Sea Glass, Turnip, Key Lime, Concrete, Latte and now Bluestone.  Is it me? Sometimes I will just pick...

    New Color Tuesday! Sculpey Soufflé Goes Metal

    I get asked frequently if there are metallic colors in Sculpey Soufflé.  The answer is NO because Sculpey Soufflé is supposed to be a wonderful addition, another color line, another surface texture,  another choice for the Sculpey artist, not a competitor to Premo! BUT that doesn't mean that we can't mix the two and create our own new metallics!  This...

    New Color Tuesday! Fluorescent Pink goes Royal

    So when I decided to mix Premo! Fluorescent Pink with Premo! Accent Purple Pearl, I knew that I would get some sparkly fuchsia to purples, but I didn't expect the RANGE of colors it gave me! I got a lovely violet with the 1:1 mix, a bold purple with the 1:2 mix and a metallic fuchsia (I'm not even sure...
