    Souffle Cornflower is such an interesting color to me - is it Blue? is it Purple? Its a cool color, right? So why does it FEEL warm to me? I'm starting this Cornflower mix month off with a trio of Premo metal colors. What will this blue/purple/warm/cool color do with the micas? Well first off, they will create one of...

  3. #HowDoYouSculpey-What I Like Most About Sculpey and How I Work With It

    “Hungry Fungus", made with Sculpey Premo™ When I was asked what I like best about Sculpey and especially how I use it, at first I did not know what to say. Honestly the answer is not that easy! Thinking about what I use polymer clay for, and specifically Sculpey, I can not give you a straight forward answer. I am...

  4. #HowDoYouSculpey

    This is a great hashtag to answer, as it has really made me look at my clay journey over the last few years.  My love of Sculpey  and polymer clay began with sculpting silly and super simple zombie fingers for friends.

    When the weather gets warmer, your polymer clay may soften and even become sticky. Warm hands and hot work areas can also cause clay to become too soft.

  7. How to Condition Polymer Clay

    Before using polymer clay for crafts, structures, figurines or jewelry, it's essential to learn how to condition it. Always condition your polymer clay straight from the package to ensure maximum softness and flexibility.

  9. Mixing Brands of Clay by Rachel Hateley

    I have found that with the many years I've been sharing my polymer clay work online I often get a lot of questions about different the techniques and processes I use, which is great because crafters are trying to learn new things and further improve their skills. Some of these questions are quite advanced and some we can consider quite...

  10. 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...

  11. 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 ...

  13. Experimenting with Glow-in-the-dark Polymer Clay

    Yesterday with the help of my mini-me, I experimented with Glow-In-The-Dark or GITD polymer clay. She took notes while I dictated what I was doing. The idea was to discover if any other light clay could be mixed with Sculpey III Glow-in-the-Dark and still retain the glow. For our experiment, we used Sculpey III Glow-in-the-dark, Premo Translucent, Premo Pearl and...

  14. The colours of a sun set!

    When you ask artists about their sources of inspiration often you will hear: “I am inspired by nature!” Well, that´s great, but what does it actually mean?I wanted to see for myself if I can tap into “nature” and find some inspiration. As it is summer right now there are a lot of beautiful sun sets to watch and...

  15. How to Make a Polymer Clay Mold Using Premo Clay

    Flowers are blooming, trees are lush and green, and the weeds are abundant! It inspired me to go for a walk in the woods, and as polymer clay is always on my mind, I decided to search for something new to use in my mold-making. I found so many interesting shapes and textures that I thought would lend themselves...

  16. Sculpey Soufflé- The Chameleon of Clay

    Sculpey Soufflé-The Chameleon of Clay Right off the bat I’ll admit it. Thoughts of polymer clay and its particular properties dominate way too many of my waking hours. Here’s my rationale, though: I could be worrying about lots of other stuff I can’t control, like climate change, cybercrime, and the catastrophic caloric content of Pop Tarts; but instead, I choose...
