  1. New Color Tuesday! November Week III

    Hmm, apparently I no longer remember how to tell my fingers to type out the entire month name of November - it took 3 tries. This week is another NCT Winner for me - I swear you can't go wrong mixing with Pistachio.  And Cinnamon is ALWAYS a winner with me! Look at that beautiful soft maize color! I really...

  2. Full Polymer clay? Or mixed media ?

    By  Marion Le Coq As usual, let me talk to you about one of my dilemmas in my polymer clay journey. What kind of clayer are you ? The one that makes everything from polymer clay ? Or the one who loves using different materials mixed with it to create effects ? I never know which one I am. Maybe because I always...

  3. New Color Tuesday- Nov Pt 2

    Two of my favorite Souffle colors (really obsessions) are featured in this mix: Cinnamon and Pistachio. I don't think you can go wrong with either color as a mixer!  Of course, I think Cinnamon looks great on it's own with just about any other color in the Souffle range as well as at least the Premo metallics.     Cinnamon...

  5. How Should I Finish My Pieces?

    By Fancy Puppet Today, I’d like to share with you one of my biggest dilemma in creation : How do I have to finish this nice piece ? Do I want a shiny finish ? Something very glossy ? Matte ? Which process ? Sanding and buffing ? with or without wax ? Or, varnish, maybe ? It depends of many features on my creations. Finishing Techniques for Polymer Clay Jewelry...

  6. Light, Clay and Everything about Transparency By: Marion Le Coq

    Have you ever had that kind of obsession that follows you everywhere ? Something that goes farther than your creations. Something that stays in your mind wherever you are, whatever you do. Like a lullaby you can’t stop whistling? I’ve had that THING for decades. Since I was a child discovering the world. I have always been attracted to Art, and...

  7. New Color Tuesday! Pumpkin Souffle Pt 5

    Okay, this is one of the wildest color palettes I've had on my table - LOOK at all the different colors!  And it appears that if you run out of Souffle Jade, you can mix a VERY close version with Pistachio and Lagoon.. I really, really like that deep grey color that Pumpkin/Lagoon 1:1 makes as well as that soft...

  8. New Color Tuesday! Pumpkin Souffle Pt 4

    Anytime I mix with a pinkish color, I now I'm going to get a make-up palette of colors - this is sort of a highlight/contour palette?  I really like the Guava color - I think it's kind of a magical color because it looks bubblegum pink in the package, but when it's cured it has a warm/orangish undertone to it. ...

  9. Common Polymer Clay Questions

    Polymer clay is a fun, highly versatile medium. You can form just about anything with it, from beaded necklaces to unique picture frames. This medium is a popular choice for artists, sculptors, jewelry makers, crafters, movie makers and anyone who wants to relax and get in touch with their creative side. Polymer clay is also an excellent medium for kids, who love...

  10. When Looking for Inspiration

    I know many artists look to the outdoors when inspiration disappears and you are probably thinking I am being very predictable, but Mother Nature is amazing isn’t she? I am lucky to have October as ‘my’ featured month as Autumn shades are emerging, the deep russet and copper tones I can see through my window are truly stunning and because...

  11. New Color Tuesday! Pumpkin Souffle Pt 3

    I admit it, I've become obsessed with these 3 mix colors.  I've used them in at least 2 projects and I have more of the blends sitting in my travel bag, ready to go to Kansas City and Chicago!  This month has triggered me to use blended colors for EVERYTHING.  That Pumpkin/Pistachio 1:1 makes a great golden color in Souffle. ...

  12. We All Have a Safe Color

    By Debbie Bulford Whilst studying Interior Design I discovered a really interesting fact: we all have a ‘safe colour’! I know this sounds strange but it will all become clear I promise! Even though you may follow fashion and colour trends, everyone will have one colour that they keep returning to. What happens if that clashes with the rest of...

  13. New Color Tuesday! Pumpkin Souffle Pt 2

    All four of these colors, Pumpkin, Canary, Jade and Latte are my "go-to" colors right now (along with Pistachio). All of these colors have languished in the clay locker at one time or another and then I rediscover them and can't live without them.  Am I fickle? I'd say so! I can't even blame it on a seasonal thing- that...

  14. New Color Tuesday! Pumpkin Souffle

    Well it's October so, of course, I had to feature Pumpkin in the mixes this month!  I also was intrigued to see what I would get and I wasn't disappointed - I got some of the biggest ranges of colors yet! I started this month's mixes off by adding the 1:1 color of Canary - actually I started with several...

  15. A Year in Review By Amy Koranek

    There are a few things that occupy my thinking in this phase of my life. Family, health, and polymer clay. In regard to family, I just celebrated my 29th wedding anniversary with the one-true-love-of-my-life - Tom. In December, we are expecting our first grand baby! I’m a mom to four children and one daughter-in-law. My three daughters all live at...

  16. New Color Tuesday! These Gonna Be Some Greens Pt 4

    I've become quite fascinated with Souffle Canary again. It can really hold it's own in a mix, even with Premo Accents Bright Green Pearl. I love, love the 1:1 mix of these two colors as well - it's a perfect bridge between yellow and green.  And of course, I already love Latte and Canary together to mix the Key Lime...

  17. New Color Tuesday! These Gonna Be Some Greens Pt3

    I'm beginning to think that Souffle Turnip is a magical color.  First, it creates that ultraviolet blue color when mixed with Premo Accent Peacock and it even plays nicely with Bright Green Pearl! I like this beginning color palette of Bright Green Pearl, Souffle Bluestone, Cinnamon and Turnip. (Yes, I would like any palette with Bluestone and Cinnamon).  It's a...

  18. Creative Journey Studios - You Must Visit

    Creative Journey Studios - You Must Visit By Amy Koranek I had the privilege of visiting Creative Journey Studios in Milton, Georgia this Summer during the grand opening of their new location. For any polymer clay enthusiast, this is truly a must-see, must-visit, must-be-part-of situation. Creative Journey Studios is a one-of-a-kind polymer clay haven, museum, gallery, workshop, and retail space...

  19. New Color Tuesday! These Gonna Be Some Greens PT 2

    I know, technically these are NOT greens in the mixes, but LOOOOK at how luscious those colors are! That Bright Green Pearl and Cinnamon mix is all kinds of skanky brown/green and I love it! The same with the Bluestone/Cinnamon - it's like a dark dust bunny brown but I really like it.  Put that color together with Souffle Igloo...

  20. My Stories by: Amy Koranek

    I’ve been claying since 1989. The first time I saw anything ever made in polymer clay was on my honeymoon—so it’s easy for me to remember how long I’ve been at this. My husband and I were honeymooning on St. Martin, and there was this jewelry case chock full of—to me—the most intriguing designs in I didn’t know what! My...

  21. New Color Tuesday! These Gonna be Some Greens

    ARgh! Second Monday caught me unaware that it's ACTUALLY Tuesday! I'm using Premo Accents Bright Green Pearl as the standard color in my mixes this month, so these gonna be some greens!  Wheee... I decided to play it a little safe and mix my 3 palette colors (Brt. Green Pearl, Peacock Pearl and Graphite) with Premo Accents Gold.  Loooook at...

  22. New Color Tuesday! There is a Little Peacock in All of Us Pt4

    This is possibly one of my most favorite mixes of the year (do I say that all the time?) Not only did I start with 4 colors that are probably my most favorite Premo colors, but the 1:1 mixes are so rich! Premo Accents Bronze was my go-to color for a long time and then I suddenly developed a color...

  23. Thinking Outside the Jewelry Box

    I LOVE to make jewelry. I’ll always make jewelry. The only thing jewelry-making lacks is the ability to “work large”. You see, I sometimes I feel like I spend entire days without moving anything but my eyeballs and four of my fingers (2 pointers, two thumbs). Such is the life of a caner. So, for balance (and sanity), I started...

  24. New Color Tuesday! There Is a Little Peacock in All of Us Pt 3

    I love the bright colors in this palette! They aren't a typical combination of colors, but I think they really work. I especially love the Peacock, Bright Green Pearl and Magenta Pearl together - maybe with a little kick of White or Black? Bright Copper Blended Clays Now to the sub-palettes: #1 This is my favorite - it's both rich...

  25. The 8 Laws of Caning

    The 8 Laws of Caning by : Teresa Pandora Salgado 1.The Path to Zen:  Caning should be relaxing; so I bite the bullet and get the “worky” part out of the way in advance. Prepare your blends and logs before you start making components. It’s much easier to get your groove on if you don't have to stop and make...

  26. New Color Tuesday! There Is a Little Peacock in All of Us

    Ahh, now we are SOLIDLY in my favorite color range - a mid-century modern color palette of greens and golds. I'm also discovering that Premo Accents Graphite pretty much fits in any palette - much more so than just black.  I suspect that Premo Accents Copper could be one of those "fits all" colors, but it is not as dramatic...

  27. New Color Tuesday! There's a Little Peacock in All of Us

    Right? At least we like to *think* that there is a little Peacock in all of us, showing our glory to the world..not peaking at our reflections in shiny car doors.. This month, I'm featuring Premo and Premo Accent mixes.  Yes! I set down my beloved Souffle  for these 4 weeks of mixes. Peacock is going to be my "featured...

  28. Simple Joy vs Crafter’s Remorse

    I’ve been a crafter since 1959. Yes, I was just 5 years old when I created my first masterpiece. It was a smooth, flat stone onto which I had glued a photo cut from my Dad’s beloved collection of vintage National Geographic magazines. To add theft to defacement, I used a beautiful river rock I had stolen from the neighbor’s...

  29. New Color Tuesday! My Magical Bluestone Pt 5

    While I think that Souffle Bluestone is the wild card of the Souffle family, Turnip comes sauntering in this week to remind me that it can do some crazy tricks as well.  For instance, check out that 1:1 mix with Jade - that is seriously a gorgeous color.  I was expecting mud and I got a...Midnight Blue? Deep Purple?  I...

  30. It’s All About the Details

    There is a simple quote I like by Sanford Weill, an American Philanthropist, that pretty well sums up how I approach my work. “Details create the big picture.” In my last post as your July Design Squad blogger, I want to share some of the little things that I believe turns a good piece of art into an incredible piece...
