    Does Polymer Clay Melt Plastic? 

    Polymer clay can melt — or soften — certain plastics in its raw state. If you place a slab of unbaked polymer clay onto the surface of an incompatible plastic, the plasticizers in the clay can soften the plastic and cause it to unstiffen or "melt." There are several different plastics made with different materials, and many have the potential...

    New Color Tuesday! Introducing Premo Soufflé™ Midnight Blue- Pt 1

    Now Midnight Blue is just a luscious color all on its own , but I decided to start with the basics to mix with the new Premo Soufflé™ Midnight Blue. So I've mixed with Soufflé Concrete, Igloo and Latte. There should have been little or no surprises here, but my eyebrows raised on every mix. First, that Concrete mix? What...

    New Color Tuesday! Introducing Sculpey Premo™ Mustard- Pt 5

    I'm so happy I get a bonus mix week this month, because-honestly-I could have mixed several more palettes this month! First, can I comment on the unexpected (at least to me) palette combo of Sculpey Premo™ White, Spanish Olive and Pomegranate? Great kitchen decor colors, planter decor - oh my.. #1 Yep, this is a killer color palette as well...

    New Color Tuesday! Introducing Sculpey Premo™ Mustard- Pt. 4

    Unexpected colors in these mixes is what keeps me coming back to my clay table each month to mix these NCTs. This month was SUPER fun for me. Who would have guessed that Sculpey Premo™ Slate and Mustard 1:1 would make a lovely soft sage GREEN? I expected a green tone with the Sculpey Premo™ Turquoise, but not the Slate...

    New Color Tuesday! Introducing Sculpey Premo™ Mustard-Pt 3

    As we slowly transition into Fall, my color palettes are slowing transitioning as well - are yours? Of course, Sculpey Premo™ Wasabi is one of my favorite mix colors and I was curious to see what would happen with the two mica clays as well. I'm quite happy with both of those mixes as well - that Bronze/Mustard mix is...

    New Color Tuesday! Introducing Premo Mustard Pt 2

    I know right? I am mixing with ALL Premo. I can't help it.. I love this new Sculpey Premo™ Mustard color. Who knew that if you mixed Sculpey Premo™ Wisteria and Mustard that you would get a flesh-type color? I expected a grey-tone and, BOY, was I surprised! #1 This is an unusual palette, but I could see using it...

    #HowDoYouSculpey? with Teresa Pandora Salgado.

    Behold, the Bowl of Shame. I present it to you with a mix of humor, humility, and, yes, compassion for the poor bowl itself. On New Year’s Day, 2010, I opened my first three blocks of clay. My profound artistic ignorance had led me to believe I could simply roll up some clay and make cane like Jon Stuart Anderson...

    New Color Tuesday! Summer Sea Glass Pt 4

    Sea Glass is back! I'm transitioning here to a late Summer/early Fall palette. As a pro photographer for over 40 years, I'm rather responsive to natural lighting and the tracking of the seasons in outdoor light. #1 Oh yes, all 3 of these look so good together. Latte is a great mix color to help bring a diverse group of...

    New Color Tuesday! Summer Sea Glass Pt 3

    WHAT NO SEA GLASS? I decided that I wanted to explore with the Premo Antique Gold a little this week. Don't worry Sea Glass will be back next week! Antique Gold is one of those colors that I was all about when it first came out, but lately, it's languished in my clay cabinet. Since I broke it out last...

    Oh yes! Greens! I love me some greens and gold and what says verdant Summer more than these color combos above? Plus, I was surprised that Premo Amber, which is a translucent color came to PLAY in color mixing while adding a nice warmth to the Sea Glass overtone. #1 I want to wear these colors, I want to sleep...

    Can You Rebake Polymer Clay?

    If the piece in question has not been glazed or painted, you absolutely can rebake polymer clay. Depending on the project, baking polymer clay multiple times may be the only way to make sure it turns out correctly.  If you do decide to rebake a polymer clay project, be sure to let it cool completely between baking cycles. Also, check that...

    Polymer Clay Repair

    Have you spent hours or even days on a polymer clay project only to find that it has suffered small cracks or breakage during baking? Cracking is almost always caused by insufficient curing or by baking a sculpture with uneven thicknesses throughout. To ensure you have a consistent thickness in your piece, we recommend “bulking out” with foil or creating an...

    After five years on the Sculpey Design Squad, I’m delighted to say I find it more exciting every year! That’s because of the care and research the Sculpey gang puts into creating new products.

    New Color Tuesday! Summer Cornflower Pt 3

    Okay, I knew that the Premo Silver and Souffle Turnip would most likely be a really good combination, but I was kind of surprised that it was a nice purple mix because I expected more of a pinkish mix. The Premo Gold/Souffle Turnip was exactly what I thought it would be - a rich copper color. But the Souffle Cornflower/Turnip...

    Ohhh! Blues and greens with a dash of warm yellow...that's Summer for me. I see so many possible sub-palettes here is was hard to pick just three. #1 Cornflower, Canary and Canary/Sea Glass 1:1 is a great warm mix without being too much in-your-face with bright colors. This is a happy palette for me. #2 Copper, Canary and Canary/Sea Glass...

    Mold Making Pt 1

    Let’s talk about mold making. The process of reproducing one object into multiples. There is some basic terminology associated with mold making which will help with the explanation. The first one would be the Master. The Master is the name of the original object that you want to make multiples of. If it’s a sculpture, it’d be called a Master...

    Souffle Cornflower is such an interesting color to me - is it Blue? is it Purple? Its a cool color, right? So why does it FEEL warm to me? I'm starting this Cornflower mix month off with a trio of Premo metal colors. What will this blue/purple/warm/cool color do with the micas? Well first off, they will create one of...

    New Color Tuesday! Fuchsia-I Can't Spell It, But I Sure Can Mix With It!

    Wow! An All-Premo mix card for me - that is rare, given my addiction to Souffle! Premo Gold and Copper are two of my favorite Premo mix colors and Wasabi is definitely my favorite Premo Wild Card mixer! And it didn't disappoint this time - instead it yielded a VERY close version of my beloved terracotta colors. The 2:1 mix...

    Okay, need a nice neutral brown? Sculpey Premo™ Fuchsia and Green, mixed 1:1, make a perfect neutral brown! By neutral brown, I mean that it's a medium tone, not too warm and not too cool - just right in the middle. It would seem like adding a brown to a color combination would be easy - brown is brown right...

    New Color Tuesday - Fuchsia - Can't Spell It But I Sure Can Mix With It! Pt 3

    I'm always surprised at how strong Sunshine stands up to color mixes. Actually, all three of these colors held their own against an arguably strong color like Fuchsia. #1 Ahh, soft Spring to Summer colors that both relax and cool me to look at them! #2 Wow! A bit of a left turn from a classic red, white and blue...
