  1. New Color Tuesday: The Moroccan Wrapup

    UPDATE:  The blue hue has been changed to the correct name,  Cobalt Blue! Welcome to NCT on Thursday. (see? If I use only the initials for New Color Tuesday, it can be used for a special Thursday edition!) Alright, here are my picks for the Moroccan palette.  I wasn't originally a fan of the minty green on the top right...

  2. New Color Tuesday Part II: The Moroccan Souffle

    I felt like I had rather slighted the Souffle clays when I nonchalantly mentioned at the beginning of the month that I didn't need to make mix charts for the Souffle colors because they WERE the Moroccan colors already.  They are jewely colors right out of the package.  But I decided to do a color palette with them and then...

  3. New Color Tuesday Part I: The Moroccan Blues

    (I typed that title and immediately tried to wrap my head around what Moroccan blues music would sound like. Still got the head tilted on that one!) This is going to be a busy week for the NCT blog.  Not only am I presenting the last of the color groups for the Moroccan theme, but I'm also going to show...

  4. Playing in the Scrap Pile

    I looked at last week's mix scraps from the Moroccan red/orange group and I couldn't just let them sit there.  I really liked this soft purple color that was mixed- it reminds me of Turnip in Souffle (actually, it COULD be Turnip, since it's in the scrap heap!).  I got these great earring findings at the Pasadena Bead Show last...

  5. 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...

  6. 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...

  7. What’s Black and White and Cool All Over?

    What’s Black and White and Cool All Over? By Teresa Pandora Salgado We live in a world of wonder and abundance…well, clay-wise that is; and that’s good enough for me! I love having the choice between making complex cane projects that require hours of work, to quick creations that require nothing but clay and cool products. That’s where the Sculpey...

  8. 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...

  9. 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...

  10. Who Doesn't Love Images?

    Who Doesn't Love Images? Over the years there have been many image transfer techniques developed. Allow me to share two newer ideas for you to try. The first is simple rub-on transfers. You will need to bake a flat or domed white clay piece as your base. This keeps the colors true. These "PARTY TIME" magnets were created with this...

  11. The Cane Mutiny: Bending Millefiore

    I love to cane. If not for incidentals such as bathing, eating and sleeping, I’d make cane 24/7. I think it’s because I’m a rebel (ok, a rebel with OCD). I need constant opportunities to experiment and grow, and that’s what millefiore caning allows me to do. A Technique for Clay Caning After my first five years of making cane...

  12. 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...

  13. What to do When I Have the Flu?

    Written by: Miranda Farrand What to do when I have the flu...well; make a crazy critter or ten. My new year rang in like many others I'm sure, sick and feverish laying in bed. I certainly didn't want to start the first day of a new year that way but apparently the flu bug thought otherwise. After being out of...

  14. Super Easy Bell Flowers

    I just want to show you how easy it can be to make some nice bell flowers. Just make a sheet of clay in your favorite colour , mabye a skinner blend or just a one toned sheet. Use the round cutters to punch out circles,any size you want. Roll them up in one end and insert a needle tool...

  15. New Color Tuesday - the Top Ten of 2014

    January 2015 preview: Moroccan colors I seem to careen along a creative highway zooming from one challenge to the next, one design to the next, one technique to the next and I don't often look back. Like that project or post? Too bad, because I'm already zooming off to new ideas and hopefully, new frontiers. Call for Proposals to...

  16. Creative Map #4 How Hard Can It Be?

    Creative Map #2 Creative Map #4 Just thought I would pop in and share some of the stuff I've been trying to work on when I have a few moments during the holidays.  As you know, I've been OBSESSED with mixing the Moroccan colors for the NCT in January.  I started by mixing the Pantone Color of the Year...

  17. 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...

  18. Premo Penguin debuts on TV!

    Premo Penguin debuts on TV! Have you heard of Bubble Gum necklaces? I hadn't until my niece (a teacher) saw some of her young students wearing them to class. They are chunky beaded necklaces for baby girls-up through adults really-that are adorable! They aren't hard to make and many are showing up with polymer clay focal pendants and accent beads...

  19. New Color Tuesday- Green Goes Metallic

    I wanted to see what the effect of mixing Premo! Green with the various metallics would be.  Not too many surprises, except that I really like the Gr/C mixes the best. Then I decided to do some three-way mixes and Wow!  I think I just mixed my favorite metallic!  The 1Gr/1B/2G mix is GORGEOUS!  and when you add texture, it...

  20. The Perfect Gift- A Handmade Sculpey Ornament

    Does it seem to you like the holidays seem to arrive earlier each year, or is it just me? Thanksgiving came and went and I can’t believe that Christmas is just a few weeks away! I love making handmade gifts but sometimes I just don’t have enough time. If you can relate, here’s a few quick ornament ideas that you...

  21. 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...

  22. The Creative Map to the Teal Rabbit Hole

    Marbleized bit of the scrap pressed into the Scupey molds were the first step. Click on this beast to enlarge it so you can follow the map. This is what happens when I have a nice little pile of pretty colored scraps left over from the New Color Tuesday mix (https://www.sculpey.com/wp/new-color-tuesday-down-the-rabbit-hole-again/).  I HAD to see how far I could...

  23. 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...

  24. A little project to do over the holidays

    So, have you noticed how BIG tiny is right now?  Tiny boxes, miniature foods, tiny animals?  And fairies!  Fairy houses, fairy doors... So when I stumbled upon this little gingerbread house cookie cutter by Wilton, my mind immediately went to my beloved Sculpey!  And though I started out with a "gingerbread color" I intend to use pastels for the spring...

  25. 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...

  26. Live love LAUGH and Learn

    Since 2014 I have called "the year of the Sponge" I wanted to learn as much as I could from as many resources that I could! I went to my 1st ever Clay ConneCTion with my Southern Connecticut Polymer clay guild.See all our fun and pictures on the Guild Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/pages/Southern-Connecticut-Polymer-Clay-Guild/147294598697 I devoured books as well as Magazines. I watched...

  27. Another Creative Map of My Brain

    Ok, last week I created this map of my clay musings.  I limited my colors and my tools (okay, my 7 working fingers did that part!). The arrows indicate how the designs evolved. Believe it or not, Friday I actually found a shirt in my drawer that I can NO jewelry to match!  Well, okay, but not a PERFECT match...

  28. Pantone Colors For Spring 2015

    I looked up the Pantone colors for next Spring and lo and behold - it reads like a color chart of Souffle! Look, there is Bluestone (my favorite), Seaglass, Lagoon, Sandcastle, Pumpkin, Pesto, Latte and Concrete. I just may have to try to mix that sea foam color on the top row, that blush color (also top row) and that...

  29. Trying to sculpt cute

    I mostly make jewellry but i really love all those little cute animal sculptures that you all make. When i try to make some they end up not so cute. Today we had a go me and my girl at making some cuteness. We made some snowmen together and i must say that they actually turned out a bit cute...

  30. NEW Color Tuesday - 2ups and 3ups

     Okay, I know that you all know that Bluestone is my very favorite Sculpey Souffle color, but LOOK at the Bluestone Premo! Accents Copper mixes!  I love every single mix here, I can't even pick a favorite!  What classy colors they are.   And since I got carried away with color mixing this month, here is a little 3up color...
