  1. Liquid Sculpey - What can I do with it? 

    Liquid Sculpey bakeable medium is one of the newest products from Polyform and more than once I heard the question: “What can you do with it?” Well sometimes it is kind of hard to answer that just using words. So I thought I would share some of my experiments with you and point you to some more information to help...

  2. 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 should be outside?). Well, this...

  3. How can I improve my work? – Self evaluation - or how “failures” can help you grow

    It´s April…spring time! I know for some of us it still feels very much like winter, but we do hope spring will soon come for all of us in the Northern Hemisphere! In Spring time a lot of us get that urge to clean and get everything tidy. You want to get the cob webs of winter out and get fresh...

  4. 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 Souffle color and made it...

  5. 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 my line of work, I...

  6. 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 becomes more of a blue...

  7. Nail RX after playing with clay….

    Playing with clay is so fun!! But sometimes my nail polish needs a refresh after working with my favorite crafting medium.  Getting a manicure is the best feeling… When my nails look good I feel good…. I happen to be one of those people who gets their nails done almost every week.  I also happen to play with clay every...

  8. New Color Tuesday! It's an Egg-citing Month Pt 4

    The last NCT for March?  Well, January might have dragged on a bit, but I don't even remember having coffee in February and now it's the end of March? Sheeshh. I love these four colors together right out of the package - Robin Egg, Latte, Cinnamon and Jade - so earthy! If I look at the Robin Egg, Latte and...

  9. Obsessed with obsession by Sherman Oberson

    Most of us are familiar with this 80s song obsession “You’re my obsession, I cannot sleep, I am your possession, unopened at your feet”. When we think of obsession we tend to think of the dark side of it but when it comes to art getting obsessed with something can really take your work to new levels. Obsession in...

  10. New Color Tuesday! It's an Egg-citing Month Pt 3

    HAPPY FIRST DAY OF SPRING!! I'm bringing you some soft spring greens today too. Now you know that I love me some greens and these are NO exception!  The BIG surprise to me was that the Souffle Robin Egg, mixed with Latte 1:1 made a lovely soft green!  I was thinking I would get a cooler version of Latte and...

  11. 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 incredibly complex things with polymer...

  12. 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 as bright as Pistachio in...

  13. 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 in this weeks starter palette...

  15. 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 I know when I opened...

  16. 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 I'm now labeling those sub...

  17. 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 with a box of facial tissues I...

  18. New Color Tuesday! Cinnamon is My New Neutral Pt 3

    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 pretty nice little color to...

  19. 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 small for the list of...

  20. New Color Tuesday! Cinnamon is my New Neutral Pt 2

    Okay, I'm starting with Souffle Cinnamon again since it's the my color of the month (as well as my current color crush), AND I'm keeping the Souffle Sea Glass as well as putting my mixer from last week, Souffle Latte into the base trio - Cinnamon, Latte, Sea Glass. This week's Mixer is Souffle Turnip (my color crush from like...

  21. Phase 1 by Gretchen Amberg

    While I war with indecision about what to make for my first polymer clay addition, I decided it would be good to start with things I already have. With all of the sunlight I get, with the exception of today where the now much light is getting through the falling snow, plants were the obvious choice. Within a couple...

  22. 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 let's get to it! This...

  23. Bringing Home to Work

    New job and new digs.  OK, technically the job is not new since I have been with the company a year, but after some musical chairs, our department seems to have finally landed in a permanent location.  I am pleased to announce I am now out of the ever-popular grey walled cubicle and in a more open area where I...

  24. New Color Tuesday! New Year-New Beginning Pt 5

    I don't often mix with a black clay.  And I can't really tell you why, except I love vibrant colors.  But when I DO mix with a Black color (or Poppy Seed Souffle here), I usually fall in love.  My kids showed me many years ago that you can get that cool acid green/yellow by mixing a little black into...

  25. The Power of Television...and Etch n' Pearls

    I have literally sat down three other times today to write this blog and been distracted by other issues - emails, garden watering, UPS dude.. ANYWAY - I love Etch n' Pearls - once I found out how to use them!  I quickly figured out that there needs to be a little mold release on the tool for the clay...

  26. Guava.  I always forget about Souffle Guava and it's actually a pink that I like! (NOT a fan of pink, raised by a mom who didn't believe in a sea of pink for little girls and especially NEVER on little redheaded girls).  Guava is a pink that can go with the cool colors as well as the warm colors.  It...

  27. We Are a Clever Bunch of Pirates

    If you have spent any time with me at all, you know I liken us clayers to pirates - we plunder and pillage all other art mediums, garages, estate sales, kitchen - and we are proud to share what clever things we come up with. I thought I'd share a few of those things that my friends and I have come...

  28. New Color Tuesday! New Year-New Way Pt 3

    This idea didn't quite work out like I thought it would.  I assumed that adding the Premo Accents Copper to these colors would tone them down but add a warmth as well.  It did work that way on the Souffle Latte and So 80s but I don't care for the 1:1 mix with the Souffle Royalty.  My guess would be...

  29. I'm a Lil Dotty

    I have a weakness for polka-dots. They are like little welcoming beacons for me.  Ask me to pick a pattern and I guarantee it will have polka-dots..or dots of some kind.  So it's only natural that I incorporate dots into my clay work. My polka-dot bracelets for Sculpey a couple of years ago The word polka-dot has been around since...

  30. New Color Tuesday! New Year-New Way Pt 2

    Okay, I've double checked my calendar and I *believe* I"m in the right place at the right time for New Color Tuesday! (actually, you can't blame me for being so excited that I posted on Monday last week can you?) We are a whole week into the New Year and I have been having a "productive play" week with my...
