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

A sister can deliver too!

My girl 4½ year old was only 3 years old when she made her first polymer clay piece and not long ago she started making her own toys. Her younger brother right now has a fascination for fire trucks, he loves them and even sleeps with all his firetrucks. So she decided to make him

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

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

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.

Polymer fascination.

A little while ago i was selling at a local small fair or market. First of all i forgot all my displays at home, i had with me only my designs, a table and the boxes that i carry the stuff in.  I realized this when i already was to far from home. But it

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

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

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

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,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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,

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

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

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

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 Bake and Bond 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

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
