  3. 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 Pearl. To the sub-palettes: #1...

  4. 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.

  5. My Most Favorite Clay Technique Ever!

    Hi! Krithika Parthan here and today I get to talk about what is probably my favorite clay technique ever. That's a pretty bold statement! But I just adore silkscreening so much!

  6. New Color Tuesday! New Reds and Blues Pt 2

    It's no secret that I love the Premo Accents Copper color (pssst! try it with Premo Accents Grey Granite!) Wow! Did I get some interesting and unusual colors this week and I love them all!

  7. 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 the red or blue and...

  8. 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 the peachy color of the...

  9. Finding your Polymer Clay Peeps

    By: Sherman Oberson I’m currently attending a polymer clay retreat as I write this. It’s called Clay Back East and is being held in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

  10. 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 like the Cornflower. The Shamrock/Sea...

  11. 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 cool palette that is calming...

  12. New Color Tuesday!I'm So Mixed UP! Pt 1

  16. New Color Tuesday - But Do They Get Along? Pt 4

    I have nicknamed this month "Missing May" - WHAT THE HECK HAPPENED TO MAY? I blinked and it's almost gone... So before I go out to the garage, er, my Deluxe Designer Studio in my "attached She Shed" to start my June NCT I figured I better drop my last NCT for May. Pistachio is an interesting color that always...

  17. New Color Tuesday! But Do They Get Along? Pt 3

    I decided I wanted to see how these vibrant new colors play with Souffle Igloo to create pastel.

And I really liked the addition of the Igloo to the original color palette as well as a...

  18. New Color Tuesday! But Do They Get Along? Pt 2

    This week I mixed 3 of the new Souffle colors with Souffle Canary in 1:1 mixes. Canary can usually hold it's own in mixes, so I wasn't too worried about losing it. I WAS super surprised with the first mix of Mandarin and Canary - I expected something practically glowing from that bright combo, but instead, I got a lovely...

  20. New Color Tuesday! But Do They Get Along? Pt 1

    I've been mixing the new Souffle colors with the Premo Accents Pearls, but I thought it might be a good idea to mix them with their Souffle teammates.
