1:1 color mixes with Souffle and Premo Accents 18K Gold

New Color Tuesday! Great Guava Pt 2

Now I love me some Premo Accents 18k Gold – and it mixes so beautifully with the Souffle color palette. The gorgeous hint of sparkle from the 18k adds a soft luster to the finished mix. Wow! That IS effusive, but I DO love the mixes. I really liked how these randomish colors of Guava,

Creating Color Stories

By Lynn Yuhr The colors of clay and the way we can manipulate those colors is probably one of the leading factors that drew us into this medium. It was for me!  The range of polymer clay colors right out of the package are wonderful. They provide a solid jumping off point for any design.

polymer clay 1:1 color mixes with Souffle Guava

New Color Tuesday! Great Guava Pt 1

Now, if you know me, you know that I’m allergic to pink, right? I’m a redhead – my mom NEVER let me wear pink or red. But I like this Souffle Guava. It’s got such a nice warm pink – more of a cocktail pink- grownup pink? Let me show you, starting with some Souffle

Souffle color mixing for cool Fall colors

New Color Tuesday! Almost Fall Pt 4

This week I am combining a cooler palette of Souffle colors for Fall – think more like in the cool shadows of the trees with ripe berries on the bushes. (Of course, I’m imagining all that, since palm trees and berry bushes aren’t seen together too often!) Mixing equal parts of colors can seem pretty

New Color Tuesday! Almost Fall Pt 3

This week I’m starting with a classic Fall palette of colors, featuring Souffle Pumpkin, Cinnamon, Canary and Grape (that sounded like a pie recipe until I listed the Canary, right?) The mixed set of colors are a lovely set of almost wine colors that still evoke the Fall mood. I was stunned to see that

New Color Tuesday! Almost FAll with Souffle Pt 2

Souffle Canary is one of those colors that always surprises in mixes. OF COURSE I love the Maize color created by Souffle Cinnamon and Canary mixed 1:1 (change the ratio dropping the Cinnamon amount for a lighter version). I was surprised that the Souffle Cowboy/Canary mix makes almost a Latte color! And of course, super

New Color Tuesday! Cornflower Pt 4

This is possibly my most favorite mix for the year! That BGP/Souffle Cinnamon mix is such a gorgeous deep golden color with a beautiful shimmer. And the BGP/Souffle Latte? It makes my mid-century modern brain so happy. I got a little carried away with my scraps and I’ll show you later what I made with

It’s All About the Shapes

    by Teresa Pandora Salgado We’ve established the fact that bull’s eyes, stripes and spirals are the basis for complex caning; but being “creative types”, we’re not quite satisfied, are we? Individuality comes from shaping the components and even the finished canes into new configurations. For this cane, I made the typical components: a log

New Color Tuesday! Cornflower Pt 3

I admit it, I have FUN mixing Souffle colors with the Premo Pearls because I NEVER know what it is going to produce. I mean Purple Pearl and Latte produced a deep gold color! WHAAAT? Latte is a color super hero like Robin Egg and Pistachio – it more than holds its own against the

Simple Complexity – The Caning Oxymoron

In the course of daily interactions, I’m often asked the default conversational question, “What do you do?”. I’ll admit I get a cheap thrill out of replying, “I teach millefiori complex caning.” That phrase alone weeds out those who really don’t care what I do, (which is most people). When they do show interest, I

Flesh Tone Color Mixing

New Color Tuesday!Cornflower Pt 2

Give me greens…any kind of greens… and I’ll like them. I figured that I would get a batch of greens from this color mixing and I wasn’t disappointed. This is an interesting process – mixing the Souffle colors with the “wilder” Premo Pearls. I just love the shimmer that 2:1 (2Pearl:1Souffle) produces with ALL the

August New Color Tuesday Cornflower Pt 1

New Color Tuesday! Souffle Cornflower Pt 1

The new Souffle color called Cornflower is an interesting color -Is it blue? Is it purple? Is it BOTH? And since I’m obsessed with mixing Souffle with Premo Accents Metallics right now, I thought I would mix with the wildest of the metallics (Purple Pearl and Bright Green Pearl) with both a cool palette and

New Color Tuesday! The Reds and Blues Pt 5

Okay, let’s finish July with a BANG! and mix colors with one of the Premo Accents Glitter clays – White Gold Glitter. Personally, I’m a little surprised that July would have the machismo to have FIVE Tuesdays in it! It’s kind of a lazy mid-summer month – it’s not supposed to be so hard working..

New Color Tuesday! New Reds and Blues Pt 4

I figured we all needed to cool off, so let’s mix some Blues this week! I was mildly shocked that my Premo Wild Child (Peacock Pearl) didn’t dish up some surprises this week, but it did dish up some lovely deep purples and blues. My favorite is the Souffle Cornflower and Wild Child, er Peacock

New Color Tuesday! New Reds and Blues Pt 3

Ohhh, this is one of my favorite mixes of the year so far! I love, love all those 1:2 mixes with Gold, but ESPECIALLY the Souffle Raspberry 1:2 with the Gold. It is such a happy little orange with the soft glow of the mica in it. But I also love the deeper orange of

New Color Tuesday! New Reds and Blues Pt 1

We have a new red and a blue in BOTH Premo and Souffle, so I thought it would be appropriate this month of red, white and blue to do some mixing with them! I started with Silver this week, since mixing with White was just too…easy. LOL These are all mixes with ONE part of

New Color Tuesday! I’m So Mixed UP! Pt 4

I can’t get over how much I love this Raspberry color! It’s an interesting mixer color for sure! But I really love it on it’s own, especially with Igloo – such a clean, crisp combo! #1 That Shamrock 2:1 with Raspberry is an interesting green that reminds me of Premo Jungle. I love it with

New Color Tuesday! I’m so Mixed UP! Pt 3

Shamrock is rapidly becoming one of my top favorite colors (as opposed to JUST a favorite color). Look at those mixes! Look at that Bronze/Shamrock mix – that is a killer color! All these mixes are 1 part Shamrock to 2 parts of the mix color. #1 I love Bronze combined with a cool color

New Color Tuesday! I’m So Mixed UP Pt 2

Cornflower is such a fascinating color to me. I never quite know what I’m going to get when I mix it – for instance, Canary and Cornflower make…GREEN? Really?? Sub-palettes! #1 I really like this combo – Canary adds the POP to the trio. I love the two mixed colors together. #2 Ohh, a classic

New Color Tuesday!I’m So Mixed UP! Pt 1

This month I’m exploring how some of the new Souffle colors mix with BOTH the Premo metallics and the original Souffle colors. I chose to mix with 1 part of the selected color (Grape this week) to 2 parts of the mix colors (Bronze, Silver and Canary this week) – instead of my usual 1:1
