  1. How to Make Cute Polymer Charms

    This guide is for you if you are wanting to get into making cute clay charms out of polymer clay or have already started and consider yourself a beginner. I have been making kawaii style charms since I first picked up my first blocks of clay in 2012 and have learnt lots along the way, so I hope you get...

  2. New Color Tuesday-18k Pt 3

    Now we already know that Souffle Turnip can do magical things, but check out Cherry Pie! We now have a Orange/Mango Glitter! And how about Royalty with that cool Brass tone? Guava makes the 18k warmer and richer while Turnip gives us a deep Rose Gold. The mica in these mixes is just lovely. To the Sub-palettes! #1 I like...

  3. New Color Tuesday-18k Pt 2

    Ahh, it's the Souffle blues and greens week - just in time for St. Patrick's Day! (my mother was a Murphy) I'm still amazed that Pistachio, even at a 1:4 ratio, still makes itself known. And who would guess that Jade would almost bow out while Sea Glass definitely holds it own (and I love that metallic green it creates...

  4. Understanding Terracotta Clay

    It doesn't matter if you're new to clay or you've been working with this medium for many years. With so many types of clay out there, it can be hard to remember exactly how they're similar or what their unique characteristics are. Terracotta and polymer clays represent two different types. If you're new to this craft, or even if you...

  5. The Difference Between Polymer Clay and Air Dry Clay

    Whether you've been thinking about getting into clay crafting or you've been doing this unique hobby for a little bit now, you may still be learning about different tools and clays and coming up with new projects to try. There are all kinds of clay out there, and you'll probably give most of them a try sooner or later. Two common...

When you use Sculpey® clay and our specialized tools, you can make just about anything. If you're looking for unique new ideas for Sculpey® clay, try making clay horns! From fun headbands to...

  7. Mixing Brands of Clay by Rachel Hateley

    I have found that with the many years I've been sharing my polymer clay work online I often get a lot of questions about different the techniques and processes I use, which is great because crafters are trying to learn new things and further improve their skills. Some of these questions are quite advanced and some we can consider quite...

  8. New Color Tuesday- 18k Pt 1

    YES, Premo Accents 18K Gold is my current Color Crush! Especially when I mix it with Souffle - any Souffle. I love to see how the Souffle disperses the mica throughout the mixes. This month I'm going to mix with colors kind of in groups. This week it's the natural tones (of Fall maybe?). I love the rich golden color...

  9. New Color Tuesday! All that Glitters Pt 4

    Well, February was over in a flash! Actually, a splash where I live - historical amounts of rain and snow here in SoCal. This week I'm mixing the Glitter Golds with Souffle Sea Glass, which is one of my favorite mix colors because I never know if it's going to go blue or green. I can make a *guess*, but...

  10. Working with Polymer Clay and Natural Elements/Mixed Media By Jenny Sorensen

    One of the best parts about working with polymer clay is being able to transform it to resemble practically anything.  Stones, shells, wood and more can be imitated using polymer clay, making it one of the most versatile mediums on the market. Even though these elements can be mimicked with clay, using natural materials with polymer can bring a new...

  11. New Color Tuesday! All That Glitters Pt 3

    These are interesting! Again, you can clearly see what each of the Glitters bring to the table in terms of warm/coolness. I think the Rose GG/Turnip is my favorite! I kinda want that in nail polish.. To the sub-palettes! #1 Yes! I would totally use this sub palette - especially for jewelry, but I can also envision these colors on...

  12. New Color Tuesday! All That Glitters Pt 2

    Ohhh, I love the greens! Jade has been an underused color in my palettes that has lately risen to the near top (which is permanently occupied by Cinnamon). I love all three of these mixes for their unique color properties - the Rose mix is rich and warm; the Yellow is warm and bright; and the White is icy and...

  13. Polymer Clay Color Mixing By Jenny Sorensen

    One of the best things about Sculpey polymer clay is experimenting with all the amazing colors that are available.  By taking some notes as I blend my own colors, I can easily recreate them. I’ll share some of the ways I take my colors to the next level and create a completely customized palette. Here is an exercise that will...

  14. New Color Tuesday- All That Glitters Pt 1

    I decided I wanted to see just how well the Souffle disburses the glitter in the Premo Accents Glitter Golds since I love how Souffle disburses the mica in the metallics. I started this month with one of my current favorites - Souffle Guava. I got so entranced with the mix I did of Guava and 18K Gold (1G/3-18K) that...

  15. New Color Tuesday-Well HELLO New Year! Pt5

    This is the first mix of the 2019 year - Premo Accents Silver mixed with Souffle Poppy Seed, Guava and Bluestone I wanted to take the last NCT of January to show you two mixes from this month that I thought were just extraordinary. The first is Premo Accents Silver mixed with Souffle Poppy Seed, Guava and Bluestone. I don't...

  16. What Surprised Me About Souffle

    First, as I've said many times, the colors really surprised me when I opened the test box of clay. But after a full day of working with it, I realized how they were designed to go together and pop against each other. They look like custom colors right out of the package. Second, when I was traveling and showing artists...

  17. New Color Tuesday! Well Hello New Year Pt 4

    I love me some 18K Gold, so I decided to add it to my mix list this month. Of course, I used some of my most favorite Souffle mixes with it - Latte, Pumpkin and Guava. Now I DO tend to come and go with Pumpkin, but then I find it again and think to myself, "Why did I use...

  18. New Color Tuesday - Well Hello New Year Pt 3

    Premo Accents Copper languished on my clay shelf for far too long.  Then when I picked it up again, I was like "hmm, why have I left this for so long?"  Now it's one of my staples, especially for mixing because it adds a richness to the colors without the boldness of mixing with Gold.  Try it with Souffle Turnip...

  19. My Souffle Fan Mail

    I am probably the biggest fan of Souffle out there! (and you probably already gathered that from all my posts..LOL) It wasn't always that way.... Part of what I do for Sculpey is create projects with the new products and items for the packaging photos.  I also like to say that it's my job to try to break the new product ...

  20. New Color Tuesday! Well Hello New Year

    Remember when last year January felt like it was 15 weeks long?  Well, this year on the calendar it IS long - 5 weeks!  This week I'm mixing  Premo Accents Antique Gold with Souffle Poppy Seed, Bluestone and Pumpkin.  The souffle combo is an unlikely favorite of mine - it's not a light palette or a dark palette.  It feels...

  21. New Color Tuesday! Well Hello New Year

                                  Looking for a way to get a slightly more pastel color, maybe a little sparkle as well? My method to do this is to mix with either Premo Accents 18k (for a warm tone) or Premo Accents Silver (for a cooler tone).  So this month...

  22. New Color Tuesday- 2018 The Final Chapter

    Happy Holidays to you all! I'm speechless that it's the LAST NCT of the year - where did the time fly by?  For me, a lot of time was flying by while I was gleefully making a mess at my clay table.  A lot of time was spent traveling from one retreat to the next, from class to class.  The...

  23. My Creative Space

      I recently improved my work space! I’m a serious sculptor, and as my passion and professionalism grow, I need my work space to reflect that growth.  I finally have an “L” desk, so one side can be for my products, and one side can be for the actual sculpting. There is also a smaller desk to the left that...

  24. New Color Tuesday! syn's Favorites from 2018 Pt 3

                              This is actually a recent mix from October.  I continue to be surprised about how strong both Canary and Robins Egg perform in mixes.  And LOOK at the color that they create!  What a perfect new Spring Green! Of course, I also love the Pumpkin/Canary because it's...

  25. Making holiday sculptures

    by Megan Durocher Before the snow starts to fall, I’m working on holiday and winter-themed sculptures. As soon as there’s a chill in the air I start looking at the red and green clay. I’m very much a home-body, so when winter arrives it’s really an excuse for me to stay in, bundle up, and do things like read, bake...

  26. New Color Tuesday! syn's Favorites from 2018

    It should come as NO surprise that a palette that yielded greens would be in my Favorite List!  Let's look back at March for these wonderful soft Spring greens. The soft look of them comes from, of course, the Latte mixed into them.  I also have to point out that these 3 colors have yielded color mixing surprises throughout.  Robin...

  27. Becoming a Sculptor

    by Megan Durocher We all have someone who inspires us. For me, that was my stepfather, Dennis. While he was on hospice, I took care of him. During this time, he told me that I needed to do something for myself as well. I tried to think of things that I could pursue and find time for while still being...

  28. New Color Tuesday - 2018 Looking Back Pt 1

    I want to start my look back with my favorite mix of the year.  I have mixed these colors over and over and used them whenever I could sneak them in.  They feel both retro and on-trend to me and, of course, greens are always timeless to me!  The fun part of mixing with Souffle is that they are already...

  29. Boho Ornaments

    Today, let’s talk about some of the latest Sculpey products : The Sculpey Silicone Mandala Mold I discovered it a few months ago and « loved it at first sight ». The goal is simple : add some Liquid Sculpey in it, cure it and you’ll have very beautiful and detailed lace doilies in polymer clay. (and you can trust me, it is SO...

  30. New Color Tuesday! The Last new NCT Palette of the Year..

    I can't believe it!  The last NEW color palette of the year..WHERE THE HECK DID THE YEAR GO?? I thought I would do my last palette with as many of my 2018 "color crushes" as I could- so you see Pistachio, Guava and Copper - all have been noted in my NCTs as favorites.  And Souffle Lagoon - a quiet...
