New Color Tuesday! Another Clay Crush Pt 2

Now this was an interesting color palette when I teamed these cool Souffle colors with Premo! Accents Gold – I got a mid-century modern color palette in the 1:1 mixes and some of the sub palettes! (and I LOVE me some mid-century modern). First off, that 1:1 mix of Guava and Gold make a warm, rich

Learning Japanese characters and words with clay

I have always wanted to learn Japanese but it is quite challenging to learn such a difficult language especially when I am living in rural England with no access to Japanese language classes or tutors. Since I am learning a 3rd language by myself, I relied on free tutorials online and even Google translate. I

New Color Tuesday! Another Clay Crush Pt 1

Yeah, I admit it, I get obsessed with a color from time to time (okay, ALL THE TIME).  Right now it’s Souffle Guava – a regular pink in the package that somehow transforms to a warm pink when cured (although it doesn’t actually change color).  And look how nice it looks with the  18% grey background.

New Color Tuesday – April is a Little Jaded Pt 4

Ah now, we have some Spring/Summer colors here! I am fascinated at how boldly Souffle Canary mixes with other colors.  And I have a new color crush – Guava.  In the package it looks a little to blah pink, but it’s magic once it’s baked.  I don’t think it shifts color, but it like solidifies

New Color Tuesday! April is a Little Jaded Pt 3

Wow, I didn’t know when I picked that title that April would actually be the “January 96th”.  My heart goes out to all those caught up in the huge storms this week!  It really makes those of us in the sunshine states feel guilty (like, why am I inside writing on my computer when I

New Color Tuesday! April is a Little Jaded Pt 2

The week was an interesting experiment.  I took the three Souffle colors that have captured my Squirrel!-like attention lately and mixed them with Premo Accents Silver (another color that I tend to forget about). All three of the mixes are beautiful and elegant.  The Silver toned down the “hey look at me” portion of the

What’s Your Favorite Color?

by Anke Humpert “People observe the colors of a day only at its beginnings and its ends, but to me it’s quite clear that a day merges through a multitude of shades and intonations, with each passing moment. A single hour can consist of thousands of different colors. Waxy yellows, cloud-spat blues. Murky darknesses. In

New Color Tuesday (Night) April is a Little Jaded

April…already?   Come on!  Well, it did give me an opportunity to play a little with my newest clay crush – Souffle Jade.  Jade is a green with blue roots.  Normally, I’m a warm green girl, but I really kinda like what I can do with this trickster green.  Mix it with a yellow and it

Sculpting 101 by Sherman Oberson

As I mentioned in my last blog post I’ve always been a sculptor. I’ve also been teaching sculpting for a long time. One thing I hear over and over from students is “I can’t sculpt” or “I’m afraid to sculpt. I’m always surprised by it because these aren’t always beginners sometimes it’s people who do

New Color Tuesday! It’s an Egg-citing Mix Month Pt 2

  Look Ma! No Cinnamon! LOL  I’ve moved the Premo Gold into the Main Mix Three, along with Guava and our Robin Egg. I’ve added Souffle Canary as our Mix Agent this week. And I got some surprises in the 1:1 mixes.  First, Canary and Robin Egg make a killer green that is not quite

Thinking Outside the Jewelry Box

When I started working with polymer clay I started sculpting with it. The minute the clay is in my hands that’s my first thought. Imagine my surprise when I joined my local guild. I went to my first meeting and discovered that with the exception of one other person in the guild every single person

New Color Tuesday! It’s an Egg-citing Mix Month

I’m attempting to wean myself off Souffle Cinnamon and I decided to explore Souffle Robin Egg a little more.  It always seems to surprise me when I add it to a color palette or mix it with other colors.  As you can see, I’m not quite weaned off my precious Cinnamon, it makes an appearance

Clayathon 2018 by Sherman Oberson

About 40 years ago while on a business trip my aunt Kathy discovered polymer clay. It was Sculpey original, she brought it home and gave it to me. I was 9 or 10 at the time. I was obsessed with sculpting things out of modeling clay and always sad when they didn’t survive. Little did

New Color Tuesday! Cinnamon is my New Neutral Pt 4

Winter decided to visit us in February after a spectacularly glorious January of 75 degrees, cool breezes, sleep weather nights.. It was actually colder when I got home here to SoCal than it was in New Jersey at the Clayathon! My new format here for the NCT is still evolving and you will notice that

Phase 3- Decorating your work space

    Raise your hand if you fork up the extra bit of money for the more expensive facial tissue because the design on the box is nice.  Yeah, I’m totally guilty of that.  Maybe it’s just because I’m an artsy-fartsy person, but I can’t seem to bring myself to spend less and end up

I’m on the road at the New York Clayathon this week, but I’m checking in with my NCT blog for this week! Some of our mix colors this month are sticking around – Souffle Cinnamon, Turnip and Latte.  I’m also adding Souffle Robin Egg this week.  I keep forgetting about Robin Egg and it’s a

Phase 2- Bringing Home the Work

Before moving to my new workspace, I had a small sandwich board style dry-erase board.  The dry-erase board is a great tool to have; I use it to write down reminders on what I need to finish working on first thing in the morning.  Over time, the dry-erase board I had been using became too

New Color Tuesday! Cinnamon is My New Neutral

Souffle Cinnamon – I love the color by itself, but I’m finding that it’s an excellent mix color as well.  For instance, want a soft maize yellow? Mix 2 parts Canary and 1 part Cinnamon. But I’m ALREADY digressing.. I’m using Cinnamon as my “base color” this month in our trio mixes this month.  So
