  2. New Color Tuesday! Its Time for a Little Latte-Pt 4

    Okay, Sculpey Soufflé™ Canary brought the mid-century colors! What a great set of colors - all 7 of them! Of course, I knew that Latte and Canary would mix to a great Key Lime, but I didn't expect that nice soft green from Cornflower (this color has some mixing CHOPS!). I thought that Raspberry would totally overwhelm the Canary, but...

  3. New Color Tuesday! Time for a Little Latte - Pt 3

    Souffle Raspberry is a pretty strong statement color, but it does play wellwith other colors. But first, I have to point out what a great palette thatmaster group of colors makes - Bluestone, Latte, Concrete and Raspberry for a pop of color. Latte lends warmth to the color colors and Raspberry adds the fun-lol. Now the sub-palettes: #1 I like...

  4. New Color Tuesday! It's Time for a Little Latte Pt 2

    Bluestone is one of my very first Souffle color crushes. It does so well on its own, I find it a challenge sometimes to find colors that will stand up to it in a combination. Certainly, Bluestone, Poppy Seed and Igloo is my most favorite combo – so clean and can go casual or more formal. I really, really like...

  5. New Color Tuesday! It's Time for a Little Latte Pt 1

    I can't be the only one who often forgets that they really, really like a color and then rediscover it right? Well, Latte is one of those colors. It was really my first color crush in Souffle. It adds an interesting mid tone to any color combination without demanding too much attention. So I wanted to mix with it again...

  7. New Color Tuesday - Going Back to My Roots Pt 4

    Now I have to clarify something. I found a frozen turkey breast in the freezer and cooked it - which *may* have influenced this palette a little. Aren't these lovely late Summer/Autumn colors? #1 These 2:1 mixes just whisper memories of sunshine and summer fun to me. No, it isn't just confinement - my clay talks to me a lot...

  8. New Color Tuesday - Back to My Roots! Pt 3

    I just love how Pistachio is such a wild card for mixing! And I love this palette of colors. Those mix colors are going to get made into something THIS week if I can swing it!

  9. New Color Tuesday - Back to My Roots Pt 2

  10. New Color Tuesday - Back to My Roots- Pt 1

    Yeah, I love me some ochered colors so I thought I would follow last months pastels with some rich colors. I have to say, I mixed so many colors that I loved that I was like, “This one! No, wait, THIS one! OMG What is THAT color?” Please note that these aren’t my usual 1:1 mixes but two parts of...

  11. My Liquid Sculpey Design and Exploration Journey Pt 2

    In my first blog I talked about my beginning adventures with Liquid Clay (LS), including how I once "lost" it in my oven. Ohhh, and then Liquid Sculpey really got exciting (and easy!) when we discovered silicone molds! I made several pendants for my friends using just the seahorse and coral combination! First I want to point out something...

  12. My Liquid Sculpey Design and Exploration Journey

    I was asked to write about Liquid Sculpey and I thought, "What am I going to talk about? How to use it? When to use it? That's pretty much been talked about already." So I decided instead to take you on a little pictorial journey with me and my LS. Translucent Liquid Sculpey (which we affectionately all refer to as...

  13. Photo Gallery from syn's Souffle Blog

    Part of my job is to "break" new stuff. I threw everything I had at Souffle - transfer, silkscreen, pencil, ink, caning, molding, color mixing - it not only worked- it surpassed what I thought it *could* do if it worked! So here are some photos of the MANY things I waved at you in my Facebook Live for Sculpey...

  14. New Color Tuesday! A Spanish Olive in the Mix Pt 2

    Well, Purple Pearl really came to the table to play! LOOK at those mix colors.. I love, love that warm grey, that deep ultraviolet purple and that pink mix is no shrinking violet.

  18. New Color Tuesday - 2019 Review Pt 3

    I bet you can see why I included this mix from June. Yes, I love that deep bronze color that the Bronze/Shamrock combo created. I kind of shocked me when I saw it start blending to that color in the pasta machine. But I was also surprised that Cornflower and Shamrock darn near replicates Souffle Sea Glass. Maybe a tad...
