Mixing Colors Technique Read on to learn how to make some of our favorite clay color mixes! Dream it, create it! Maggie Maggio’s Color Mixing Map is the key to color mixing using premo! Sculpey. Simple and straight forward, the map uses three basic premo! colors: Zinc Yellow, Cobalt Blue and Fuchsia. premo! is the perfect mixing clay because the primaries do not contain white. Maggie Maggio has explored color for over thirty years. Trained as an architect and designer, Maggie discovered polymer clay in the early 1990′s and immediately recognized its potential for 3D color. Maggie and Lindly Haunani are co-authors of the book Polymer Clay Color Inspirations, published by Watson-Guptill/Random House.

Project Instructions

Your Workspace:
Please make sure your work area is covered and you are not working on an unprotected surface. We recommend working on the Sculpey® Work ‘n Bake Clay Mat, wax paper, metal baking sheet, or disposable foil. Uncured clay may damage unprotected furniture or finished surfaces. Be sure to cover your crafting area appropriately.

Getting Started:
Start with clean hands, unwrap and knead clay until soft and smooth, or condition by running clay though a Pasta Machine. We recommend using a designated machine for clay purposes only. When working with multiple colors, clean hands with soap and water or baby wipes (we have found that baby wipes work best) before switching colors. Shape clay, pressing pieces firmly together. Wash hands after use.

Baking:
Begin by preheating oven to 275 °F (130 °C). After you are done creating; for best results bake clay on an oven-proof surface such metal, aluminum foil, an index card or the Sculpey® Clay Mat at 275°F (130 °C) for 15 minutes per ¼" (6 mm) thickness according to package directions. Oven safe glass or ceramic surfaces are also acceptable for baking; however please note that the baking times may take longer as the glass or ceramic surfaces take longer to heat up. For best baking results, use an oven thermometer. DO NOT USE MICROWAVE OVEN. DO NOT EXCEED THE ABOVE TEMPERATURE OR RECOMMENDED BAKING TIME.
With roller in tool set, roll thin sheets of each clay color. From Beige, cut out 8 circles and 7 small teardrops. From Violet, cut out 7 diamonds. From Purple, cut out 7 diamonds. From Spring Lilac, cut out 7 large teardrops and 21 ovals.
Press cutouts on glass ball according to photo, or any way you want. Stamp if desired. Sprinkle with glitter.
Bake according to instructions above in Step 1.
