  1. New Color Tuesday! Lots of Latte Pt 5

    Well, I can't do a mix without having a premo! Sculpey Accents Bronze mix as well!  And I vote YES on all these mixes..especially that 1:1 mix.  Oh, in a combination with Purple Pearl and/or Bright Green Pearl?  Even premo! Orange. And that 4L/1B looks like an expensive camel hair coat color to me, so maybe teamed with premo! Black...

  2. Summer Bling Rings

    Summer is right around the corner with white and light colors popping up in the fashion trends. I thought it would be fun to create some bling to go with the summertime fun casual or sparkling evening wear styles. I stumbled onto a fairly new technique to create faux Druzy stones using polymer clay and glitter…both of which I...

  3. New Color Tuesday! Lots of Latte Pt 4

    I am not the biggest fan of purple.  I know, it's a surprise, given that I love bright colors right?  I do have to admit though that I'm loving those first two mixes though (Oh GOD!  I'm liking subdued colors?Am I becoming OLD????!?? Nah, body may age, but the goofy tastes will remain).  I'd like that 1:1 to mix with...

  4. I'm So Ready for Summer!

    Living on the Oregon Coast is a beautiful place to be, although when you have a record rainfall you are just counting the days until summer! I thought these simple watermelon cane earrings would put me in the mood for picnics and warm summer nights! Although it has been around for years, I have discovered UV resin. The great thing...

  5. Chalkboard Flowers

    With the popularity of chalkboards this season I wanted to mimic the look with polymer clay for adding accents, and it worked! I was so excited when the first flower was finished that I put it right on a chalkboard. Let me back up a bit and tell you when I learned this technique which is called “chalking” in the...

  6. New Color Tuesday! Lots of Latte Pt 3

    Some of the finished pieces from our Studio 215 class Well, I'm back from another great trip to Florida for the Fandango retreat! The weather was glorious this time- it felt like our typical Southern California weather - warm sun, no humidity and LOTS of claying! Can you imagine 3 days of classes with Jana Roberts Benzon, Dayle Doroshow...

  7. New Color Tuesday! Lots of Latte Pt 2

    GREETINGS FROM FLORIDA!! I've just finished the fantastic Fandango retreat and now I'm hanging out with Alice Stroppel and I'm going to teach a little silkscreen class in her gorgeous Studio 215 in downtown Sebring.   Ahhh, now I love me some Peacock Pearl! I don't know about you, but I "see things" in the swirls of blue and green...

  8. New Color Tuesday! Lots of Latte Pt 1

    I've become fascinated lately with mixing Sculpey Souffle and premo! Sculpey Accents colors together. (Ya'll know that I use Accents Bronze and Souffle Cinnamon 1:1 on almost a daily basis right?) So I was wondering what would happen if I mixed Souffle Latte into some of the other Accents Pearl colors to see what happened.  This week I mixed Sunset...

  9. Story Starters with Bake Shop Clay

      Often times the most difficult part of starting a story (whether for telling or writing) is coming up with the basics. By creating clay story starters, kids are offered a large variety of possibilities to support their creative thinking. To create this, you will only need one thing...Bake Shop clay.   Set a variety of colors out for your...

  10. NCT (Thursday) When Gold Isn't Enough

    I was goofing around yesterday (you know, instead of ACTUALLY doing the thing I was SUPPOSED to do) and I found that I needed to match a bronze Lumiere paint in a scrap piece I was playing with.  (Hey, the commissioned piece was actually drying before baking). Regular premo! Accents Gold was just too bright, so I decided to  mix...

  13. New Color Tuesday! Color the Rocks Pt 3

    Now you KNOW that mixing Souffle Latte into pretty much any color is going to be interesting (hmmm, so interesting that I think I just found my mix color for next month!). And mixing it with premo! Accents Gray Granite is going to make a pretty killer granite, very similar to what we see in our local mountains/desert regions. (Fun...

  14. How to Spring Clean Your Studio Easily and Efficiently

    How to Spring Clean Your Studio How to Spring Clean Your Studio by KatersAcres Spring clean your studio easily, quickly, and efficiently. These tried and true tips that will take you from danger zone to comfort zone in less than 30 minutes. The arrival of spring not only makes me want to clay my days away, but it also makes me want to clean! It's no secret that I can't clean in a mess. I've written many times about how I LOVE a very clean studio. Unlike many other artists, I crave a clean and tidy workspace. [It's okay, you can laugh.] I do know that I'm not the only artist that is like this. I have written articles on this blog before about how you can clean up your studio, but today I'm talking about the BIG clean up (almost like a purge) that you really should do every spring.

  15. New Color Tuesday! Color the Rocks Pt 2

    YAY! I'm back online. I made some rocks for the Into the Forest project and I thought it would be fun to show you all some mixes using the premo! Accents Grey Granite.  While the color is lovely on its own, it is SO FUN to add other clays, inks, tints to it!  Today I'm mixing in Souffle Bluestone (because...

  16. New Color Tuesday! It's All About the Turnip

    I've discovered that many of you don't realize that you can actually mix Souffle and premo! together - often with some spectacular results! Want a velvet texture to your clay? Mix Souffle and premo!  Want a color palette that is entirely different? Mix Souffle and premo! Now I already have my favorite premo! Accents Bronze and Souffle Cinnamon mix that...

  17. New Color Tuesday! Fade to Black Pt 4

    I AM SO PROUD OF MYSELF!!! I managed to keep these mixes until the end - usually I would blather them right at the front of the month because I am so excited about them! This week I've mixed premo! Black into the premo! Accents Glitter Golds.  And they are gorgeous!  I've already got another favorite mix for the year...

  18. New Color Tuesday - Fade to Black Pt 3

    I am not big on cool colors, but I DO see the need for them, so this week I'm presenting you with two cool color mixes: First up, premo! Cobalt Blue and premo! Black.  Okay, I can't pick a favorite - I find all four of these mixes to be much more interesting than just the out of the package Cobalt...

  19. New Color Tuesday - Fade to Black Pt 2

    Wow!  Premo! Black and premo! Orange make some really nice er, warm greys? Browns?  Whatever you want to call them, I like them and can envision them as a really nice, rich background for a gold silkscreen, possibly in a home decor situation with lots of reclaimed wood around it.  I also really like the two more Orange mixes as...

  20. Valentine's Day with Clay

    Valentines Day is one of my favorite holidays for creating fun projects.  Here are THREE easy peasy ones that you can do with Bake Shop clay and use for decor or card giving.  I think that hand made items are always meaningful but even more so for this season of love.  Bake Shop clay is so easy to work with...

  21. New Color Tuesday-Fade to Black

    I got so carried away mixing for this month that I added 3 extra weeks to February.  Relax! I couldn't afford 3 extra weeks in the month either so I decided to double up some of the palettes. I'm starting with one of my favorite black mixes: premo! Black and premo!  Cadmium Yellow Hue (commonly called Cad Yellow).  My boys mixed...

  22. New Color Tuesday- It's All About the Greens Pt 5

    Well, here we are at the END OF JANUARY 2017!  Wasn't it just January 2016?  I'm trying desperately to find time to get out to my clay table sometime this week - and I'm "retired".  Let me tell you right now, retirement is NOT all about lounging and reading magazines - it's about cleaning, de-cluttering, parenting, and lots of stuff...

  23. New Color Tuesday- It's All About the Green Pt 4

    I'm the first to admit that I'm all about the bright, bold colors, but I occasionally go for a softer color.  So this week, I decided to team the premo! Green with premo! Ecru for a series of soft, warm greens.  I love the 1:1 mix and the 2E/1G mix a lot.  Both are colors that I've aimed for with...

  24. New Year's Memory Jar

  25. New Color Tuesday - It's All About the Green Pt 3

    I know, I know, I'm late.  But it's a big day in our house - my youngest son just started in a new career today.  That's exciting, but the most exciting thing for me is that I got all day to clay again after 2-1/2 months.  YAY!!  So forgive me for not being able to tear myself away from the...

  26. New Color Tuesday! It's All About Green Pt 2

    Okay, it's one of those days.  I've sat down at least 4 times to write this, only to have another mini-crisis do deal with.  The garbage disposal got jammed, the contractor has 18 thousand questions for me, people emailing, texting, messaging me all need an answer quickly. Sigh... It's okay though, because I'm writing about green all month! Greens are...

  27. New Color Tuesday- It's All About Green

    Happy New Year to you all- A new year means new subfolders in most of my files which always feel like a fresh start, a blank canvas.  I file my NCT color palettes by year and month as well as my notorious photographs around my home and beach (the 3x3 collection as well as the sunsets).  I don't know, it...

  28. New Color Tuesday- A Look Back Pt 4

    The final NCT of 2016!  And I'm typing on a new keyboard that my kids got me that is backlit, so I can see it (I suspect that I could have seen my old keys had I actually cleaned the keyboard). I'm going to finish with what was my most surprising mix of the year - Souffle Concrete and premo...

  29. New Color Tuesday - A Look Back Pt 3

    Well, we have had two days of Winter here in SoCal, but it's back to sunny and 60s at least.  I asked my son how he could wear shorts when it was so chilly the other day, he looked down and said, "But these are my Winter shorts mom!" I'm personally happy that I spent my bonus points on myself...

  30. New Color Tuesday- A Look Back Pt 2

    Okay, this was one of the most surprising color mixes I've ever done.  The first three mixes are quite predictable and lovely, but that last mix - who would even THINK that Periwinkle and Ecru would mix to make a grey?  And a lovely grey at that! But that's one of the best parts of doing these mixes - the...
