    Miniatures are back...but in a new form!

    You may not know this, but the first people to use polymer clay were miniaturists. I know this as in the beginning....well maybe not that far back, the only place I could find the clay was in hobby and train shops. It was used to create tiny people or greenery for model trains. Soon after discovering the clay, I was...

    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...

    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...

    What I Like To Do To Stay Creative

    No matter if working with polymer clay is your hobby, your creative outlet or it is your art form, we are all not inspired at times. We feel we are doing the same old same old again and again and just have no ideas at one point. It happens to everyone. The point is: not to stay un-inspired and un-creative...

Accents Bright Green Pearl (yet ANOTHER color...

    The Joy of Scrap Clay

    The Joy of Scrap Clay  Teresa Pandora Salgado   Got scrap? I think we all do. Some of my most relaxing times revolve around it. After all, what have you got to lose?

    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...

    The Importance of Keeping a Polymer Clay Journal

    Many have wondered if they should be keeping a polymer clay journal. In my opinion, I think a polymer clay journal is essential for cataloging where you’ve been, where you’re going, and how you might get there. Think of it as a little “glimpse” into your studio over time. What Kind of Things Might Your Write Down? Colors you’ve used...

    Spring-Summer Trend...Gingham!

    I diligently search the fashion magazines for trends in fashion that could relate to clay . Seriously, don't we try to relate EVERYTHING to clay? "look at the wall texture-good for clay" or "I could cane this pattern"..  It seems that one of the biggest trends for Spring/Summer will be gingham!  As well as pale blues for nails.  So I...

    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...

    What a Difference a Day Makes

    What a Difference a Day Makes by Teresa Pandora Salgado As a caner, I often set aside several days to blend, build and assemble millefiore elements. That’s all well and good I suppose, since the payoff eventually comes in the form of a nice complex cane; but, then I’ve got to start the actual project. So there’s another day, maybe...

    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...

    For the Love of Junque

    For the Love of Junque by Teresa Pandora Salgado I remember when Re-purposing was called Recycling. I think recycling was a better word, because our trash and treasures really do go through a cycle, don’t they? The pen holder shown here is a Knott’s Berry Farm jam jar that I lost the lid to. The bowl is a battered old...

    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...

    Embracing the Hideous

    Embracing the Hideous Teresa Pandora Salgado Keep this to yourself, ok? Sometimes I make some truly ugly canes. No lie, my friends. I blend and blend and reduce and reduce and combine and combine and I manage to create something not only underwhelming, but downright grotesque. Such was the case with the cane used in this bowl. You’ll notice I...

    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!

    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...
