    My Inspirations and How It Developed My Own Style

    When I discovered polymer clay about 6 years ago, I was overwhelmed with the possibilities of things which I could create. I had probably browsed thousands of pictures of polymer clay miniatures online and was giddy with excitement since I didn’t know where to start. The next few years, I spent almost everyday practicing this new art form but...

    Learning Japanese characters and words with clay

    I have always wanted to learn Japanese but it is quite challenging to learn such a difficult language especially when I am living in rural England with no access to Japanese language classes or tutors. Since I am learning a 3rd language by myself, I relied on free tutorials online and even Google translate. I didn’t have the luxury of...

    Where do your ideas live? – How to build a home for your ideas

    The Spring cleaning, I told you about, is still happening in my studio. And if you think I have too much stuff you are probably right. It does feel good to go through all my supplies and decide what will be worth taking up the valuable real estate in my studio and what will have to find some other...

    Liquid Sculpey - What can I do with it? 

    Liquid Sculpey bakeable medium is one of the newest products from Polyform and more than once I heard the question: “What can you do with it?” Well sometimes it is kind of hard to answer that just using words. So I thought I would share some of my experiments with you and point you to some more information to help...

    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...

    What's Your Favorite Color?

    by Anke Humpert “People observe the colors of a day only at its beginnings and its ends, but to me it's quite clear that a day merges through a multitude of shades and intonations, with each passing moment. A single hour can consist of thousands of different colors. Waxy yellows, cloud-spat blues. Murky darknesses. In my line of work, I...

    New Color Tuesday! It's an Egg-citing Month Pt 4

    The last NCT for March?  Well, January might have dragged on a bit, but I don't even remember having coffee in February and now it's the end of March? Sheeshh. I love these four colors together right out of the package - Robin Egg, Latte, Cinnamon and Jade - so earthy! If I look at the Robin Egg, Latte and...

    Obsessed with obsession by Sherman Oberson

    Most of us are familiar with this 80s song obsession “You’re my obsession, I cannot sleep, I am your possession, unopened at your feet”. When we think of obsession we tend to think of the dark side of it but when it comes to art getting obsessed with something can really take your work to new levels. Obsession in...

    Sculpting 101 by Sherman Oberson

    As I mentioned in my last blog post I’ve always been a sculptor. I’ve also been teaching sculpting for a long time. One thing I hear over and over from students is “I can’t sculpt” or “I’m afraid to sculpt. I’m always surprised by it because these aren’t always beginners sometimes it’s people who do incredibly complex things with polymer...

    New Color Tuesday! Cinnamon is my New Neutral Pt 4

    Winter decided to visit us in February after a spectacularly glorious January of 75 degrees, cool breezes, sleep weather nights.. It was actually colder when I got home here to SoCal than it was in New Jersey at the Clayathon! My new format here for the NCT is still evolving and you will notice that I'm now labeling those sub...

    Phase 3- Decorating your work space

    Raise your hand if you fork up the extra bit of money for the more expensive facial tissue because the design on the box is nice.  Yeah, I’m totally guilty of that.  Maybe it’s just because I’m an artsy-fartsy person, but I can’t seem to bring myself to spend less and end up with a box of facial tissues I...

    New Color Tuesday! Cinnamon is My New Neutral Pt 3

    I'm on the road at the New York Clayathon this week, but I'm checking in with my NCT blog for this week! Some of our mix colors this month are sticking around - Souffle Cinnamon, Turnip and Latte.  I'm also adding Souffle Robin Egg this week.  I keep forgetting about Robin Egg and it's a pretty nice little color to...

    New Color Tuesday! Cinnamon is my New Neutral Pt 2

    Okay, I'm starting with Souffle Cinnamon again since it's the my color of the month (as well as my current color crush), AND I'm keeping the Souffle Sea Glass as well as putting my mixer from last week, Souffle Latte into the base trio - Cinnamon, Latte, Sea Glass. This week's Mixer is Souffle Turnip (my color crush from like...

    New Color Tuesday! Cinnamon is My New Neutral

    Souffle Cinnamon - I love the color by itself, but I'm finding that it's an excellent mix color as well.  For instance, want a soft maize yellow? Mix 2 parts Canary and 1 part Cinnamon. But I'm ALREADY digressing.. I'm using Cinnamon as my "base color" this month in our trio mixes this month.  So let's get to it! This...

    New job and new digs.  OK, technically the job is not new since I have been with the company a year, but after some musical chairs, our department seems to have finally landed in a permanent location.  I am pleased to announce I am now out of the ever-popular grey walled cubicle and in a more open area where I...

    New Color Tuesday! New Year-New Beginning Pt 5

    I don't often mix with a black clay.  And I can't really tell you why, except I love vibrant colors.  But when I DO mix with a Black color (or Poppy Seed Souffle here), I usually fall in love.  My kids showed me many years ago that you can get that cool acid green/yellow by mixing a little black into...

    Guava.  I always forget about Souffle Guava and it's actually a pink that I like! (NOT a fan of pink, raised by a mom who didn't believe in a sea of pink for little girls and especially NEVER on little redheaded girls).  Guava is a pink that can go with the cool colors as well as the warm colors.  It...

    New Color Tuesday! New Year-New Way Pt 3

    This idea didn't quite work out like I thought it would.  I assumed that adding the Premo Accents Copper to these colors would tone them down but add a warmth as well.  It did work that way on the Souffle Latte and So 80s but I don't care for the 1:1 mix with the Souffle Royalty.  My guess would be...

    I'm a Lil Dotty

    I have a weakness for polka-dots. They are like little welcoming beacons for me.  Ask me to pick a pattern and I guarantee it will have polka-dots..or dots of some kind.  So it's only natural that I incorporate dots into my clay work. My polka-dot bracelets for Sculpey a couple of years ago The word polka-dot has been around since...

    It's Logical Really

    HI! syndee here.. I really like to work on multimedia projects and I often use paper in the projects.  Whether its an actual photo or images from scrapbook paper or wrapping paper.  I kept running into a problem though.  No matter how I attached the paper to the sheet of clay, it would curve after baking.  Yeah, it would LOOK...

    New Color Tuesday -New Year-New Way

    I'm starting the New Year off with a second cup of mocha coffee - not because I was out late, but because I have a dog who can't handle fireworks. I even dutifully gave BOTH dogs calming drops, but once the neighborhood started popping them off around 11, she was a mess.   The little one snored through everything, but they seemed...

    Well, Well, Well, the last NCT of 2017. Where did this year go? This mix was one my sons showed me years ago when they came up to me and gave me this cool acid green color clay.  I asked them where they got it and they said they mixed it and they proceeded to school me in how to...

    Some musings on the Christmas color scheme…

    What makes an ugly Christmas sweater so ugly?  I was shopping a vintage store today where they had a special display of ugly Christmas sweaters. (Not sure how they acquired such a large selection, they were truly vintage, though!)  But I noticed something as I perused the assortment:  the worst had the most traditional colors, closest to what we all...

    New Color Tuesday! It's All About the Brights Pt 4

    Well, this was a surprise!  Fluorescent Pink hardly affected the Souffle Cherry Pie at ALL!  I do like that 1:1 mix though, it reminds me of a rose color. I also really like the straight Fluorescent Pink and the straight Cherry Pie together as well.  And I like them with the grey background, so Souffle Concrete or Rhino Grey (long...

    New Color Tuesday! It's All About the Brights

    So Fluorescent.. not normally my cup of tea, but they ARE fun to mix with! And this week I mixed with Premo Orange and I love every one of these mixes!  And I love them all together as well.  I want to paint my walls with these colors, dress in these colors, clay in these colors!  Oh! and look at...

    New Color Tuesday! Doing the Guava Pt 5

    Oh yeah, I love me some warm, rich orange tones.  I've seen (and photographed ) these colors on my beach so many times.  It's my favorite time of the day - long shadows and golden dust motes floating everywhere.  Actually, it's my dog, Annie, favorite time of the day too.  She's a Sparkle Hound.  She hunts sparkles and late afternoon...

    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...
