  1. My Creative Map

     I decided last weekend to do another study like I did with the cutter bracelets last year. The way I do my challenges is to decide on a creation type - bracelet or pendant, etc. and then nominate the tools that can be used in all the projects.  This time I also limited myself to the colors of clay on...

  2. New Color Tuesday - the Neutrals

    It's always a challenge for me to find the right neutral for my project.  Sculpey Souffle has wonderful neutrals with Concrete for a cool neutral and Sandcastle and Latte for warm neutrals.  I generally tend to grab the Latte for my warm neutral, but lately I'm finding that the Sandcastle is a gorgeous mixing color. (I just mixed Sandcastle with...

  3. Where has the year gone???

    Sculpey, and antique key, and some crackle paint make me happy! Hi gang!  Kari McKnight Holbrook here!  Oh my goodness!  I cannot believe it is November already!!  I thought for sure I would have an entire cabinet full of finished projects by now!  However, I find myself looking at the calendar and how close Christmas is and am a...

  4. New Color Tuesday - Thar's Gold!

    I am having so much fun with Premo! Accents Copper, I decided to mix it this month with Sculpey Souffle and see what happens.  Since my broken arm prompted me to get a motor for my pasta machine, I went a little overboard on the mixing.  So we are going to pretend like there are SIX weeks in November! First...

  5. New Color Tuesday with Mix Recap

    Well, now isn't that interesting?  Usually the four mixes look like variation of a similar color. Premo! Accent Copper and Premo! Turquoise mixes look like four very distinct colors. And, as usual, I don't know which one I like best. Although....that 4C/1T mix makes a pretty rich looking bronze that would make a wonderful bezel for the Turquoise. Or even...

  6. Sunset Synergy Across the Sea

    (say THAT 3 times quickly!) Earlier this week I was working on the New Color Tuesday (NCT) for November and I just had to try this Skinner Blend of Sculpey Soufflé Bluestone and Premo! Accents Copper. Bluestone is my all time favorite clay color, so I'm a little stoked about this blend.   I posted it on FB and my...

  7. EEK! It's a Spider Celebrating the Halloween Popcorn Box Party

    This is the second year of the Halloween Popcorn Box Blog Party where designers create boxes and share their creativity in an online party.  Check out what you can do with a little Sculpey III... This one features an adorable clay spider made with Scupley III clay that I designed and shared on a tutorial on my blog earlier this...

  8. New Color Tuesday- With 2 Olives Please

    When I was in Spain, I could have lived on ham, bread and olives.  In fact, I think I tried to! Big olives, tiny olives, most of them green olives.  This  Premo! Spanish Olive  color makes me crave olives!  So I wanted to see what would happen when I mixed it with Premo! Accents Copper. Of course, mixing a green...

  9. No sew Pumpkins with Sculpey Polymer Clay stems

    Create stems for your no sew decorative pumpkins with Sculpey Polymer Clay.  These pumpkins are pretty quick and easy to make.  You do not even have to sew.    If you know how you could, but with my special tip you will not have to sew. This is a front view of the stems. Material list for No Sew Pumpkins...

  10. Orange You Glad It's New Color Tuesday?

    Ok, sorry for the bad pun in the title, but I couldn't help it! I'm excited this week, this is like TWO uncharted territories for me - Premo! Accents Copper and Premo! Orange.  I don't mix a lot with orange, other than maybe a little yellow or white.  I love the mixes with Copper, they are subtle (which is a...

  11. New Color Tuesday - Mining Copper

    Okay, so I'm sort of fascinated (fixated?) with Premo! Accents Copper this month.  Originally, I was going to do 2 weeks of Premo! mix and 2 weeks of Souffle mix, but I got so intrigued with the Premo!  I am doing the whole month with Premo! First up is Copper mixed with Premo! Accents Purple Pearl. I LOVE that rich...

  12. Notes from the Prescott Retreat

    First of all, they have the BEST venue EVER!  It's a rustic camp, but the amenities!  If you didn't want to hike the 1/2 mile to the chow hall, they sent a bus.  And every evening, a tray of fresh cookies magically appeared! All the artists attending get a FULL TABLE to themselves!  Ahhh, room to spread out.. I was...

  13. My favorite things

    My favorite things made with Sculpey brands of polymer clay is a collection of things I have saved on pinterest because want to try to make some version of it or try the technique. First up is a Sock Monkey, not only is it adorable just because it is a sock monkey, but it is also an ornament.  Best of...

  14. He"art"felt Expressions

    One of my greatest joys as an artist is the sharing of my love of art with my children. My youngest child never misses an opportunity to deliver custom-made "to: Mommy-mail". She recently paired up a polymer clay heart that she made (age 6) with a letter that she wrote to me. Needless to say, they will both end up...

  15. New Color Tuesday! It's All About Copper

    So I've just unpacked my clothing from my trip to the fantastic Arizona Polymer Clay Guild retreat in Prescott (more on that later!).  My clay stuff is waiting for me to unpack in the garage.  It was funny when I crossed the state line back into California, they always have a check station to see if you are bringing in...

  16. Boo! It's Claytime Playtime with Halloween Tic Tac Toe

    I LOVE the autumn season and get a little crazy when it comes to creating projects, games and fun for Halloween. This claytime playtime Halloween Tic Tac Toe is so simple and fun to make...and to play! I used Bake Shop Sculpey Light clay for this creation. I rolled the orange into 5 small balls and then pushed them on...

  17. Homemade Texture Tool

    I'm pretty sure it comes from necessity, that as a mother, I need to be able to cram a lot of tasks into a small amount of time. When it comes to my critter sculpting it's no different. I made this simple texture tool from left-over scrap clay and 20 gauge craft wire. I've used it for making sand texture...

  18. New Color Tuesday: Lagoon and Metallics

    By now you know that I tend to get fascinated with a color and go crazy with it for a couple of days (or weeks) before the next infatuation.  So far, my longest infatuation is with Sculpey Soufflé Bluestone, but as usual, I've run out of it.  So, look what magically appeared on my worktable...18k Gold.  Normally, I'm a retro...

  19. White, white, white!

    Very often I see the question about how to keep white clay, white. It seems to be a problem for so many. It can be done, you can make super white creations. First of all it is the same for all things and that is actually, practice! I would like to share with you how I keep my clay white...

  20. How to Fix a Boo-Boo

    It happens to the best of us. You get in a hurry and forget to check for air bubbles that sometimes form between your clay and the armature of your critter body. Everything looks okay on the surface of things, then the next thing you know, you’re pulling a critter out of the oven that looks like it’s about to...

  21. Your Kids Can Teach You About Clay

    ..but you have to be willing to listen! When my boys were in grade school, it was tradition in California that in the 4th grade they all built a mission or something reflective of Junipero Serra era of our state history.  Well, my son came home and announced that he was building the original Royal Presidio of San Diego and...

  22. New Color Tuesday: The Purples

    I don't consider myself a fan of purple.  Wait, my whole front yard is purple.  I used to have a purple velvet chair.  OKAY, *maybe* I am a small fan of purple.  I definitely don't like pink.  I'm a redhead and redheads didn't wear pink in my day. ( I can hear my son's hilarious old man voice right now...

  23. New Color Tuesday- White or Off-White?

    I don't know about you, but I seem to often be puzzling whether to add White (Igloo in Souffle-speak) or Off-White (Ecru in Premo-land, Sandcastle in Souffle-speak) to create my lighter intensity of a color. Generally, I feel that adding the White tone will create a more pastel effect, while adding the Off-White tone will create a softer, lighter version...

  24. From Mess to Masterpiece…or Something like That

    Recently a newfound clay friend posted a picture of a neat little organizer that would keep each package of opened clay pristine & clean & easy to use. In the ensuing conversation, I said that I keep mine in a jumbled mess tossed willy-nilly into gallon-sized zip lock bags by color family (greens, blues, browns, reds, etc.). I tried to...

  25. New Color Tuesday! Lagoons and Sandcastle

    I decided that I had been overlooking color mixing with the neutrals, so this month Lagoon is going to be mixing with both Sandcastle and Igloo.  I don't know about you, but it's often a hard decision for me to create a lighter color with a white or an off white.  So let's see them on their own and then...

  26. A Treasure from Germany

    It's not like I could ever find anything with my kid's names on them when they were little..Tahichi and Kojiro are not exactly common names in the USA (or Japan really either).  But look at what my dear clay friend Anke Humpert sent me from Germany! It's one of her fantastic graffiti bracelets that says "Tach&Kojiro"!  I finally have something...

  27. Ireland Checks In

    My excitement to attend EuroSynergy in Malta was considerably dampened when I found out that my dear friend in Ireland, Angela Kent, would not be able to attend after all, due to her husband's illness.  As soon as I returned home, I sent her the new tools and Sculpey Soufflé clay.  I was so surprised and pleased to receive an...

  28. Broke it?

    Sometimes things break that we spent a lot of time making. Maybe it breaks because it is not properly cured or because we forgot to use Oven bake clay adhesive to adhere raw clay on to baked. I broke some pieces when I drilled them, they were layered so nowadays I use Bake and Bond more often. Anyway! If you...

  29. New Color Tuesday! A Sea Adventure

    Okay, it's not rocket science to guess that if you mix Pistachio with Lagoon, you are going to get some gorgeous sea colors.  I was surprised that they weren't more on the blue side than they are.  That Pistachio is a pretty strong color!   So let's say goodbye to our Pistachio and say hello to September's mix color...

  30. Lilies of the valley

    I made a post some time ago here in this blog and i asked if you like me loved cherry blossoms, now i will ask- "Don´t you just love Lilies of the valley?" A friend of mine that is a talanted jewellrymaker asked me about a year ago to make her Lilies of the valley flowers. I took me a...
