Custom Color Mixing

If you are color challenged like I am you might want to try using color mixing recipes. Every Spring and Fall I buy the new recipes loving created by Chris Dembinski. You can buy them in her Etsy Shop for 3 types of polymer clay, which are Premo!, FIMO Classic and Kato Polyclay. The color palette imitate theΒ  PANTONE’s color trends, so you can blend with the latest fashions πŸ™‚ Th e-books are an instant download. So you can buy them & download them immediately.

 

Here are the 3 newest recipes e-books for Spring 2014

News in the Polymer Clay World

Sorry I haven’t posted in a while. Life…… you know how it can be. Flu bug, hard drive crashed, making stamps. Keeping me busy. Too busy sometimes. Feeling better, computer fixed, stamps made……….at least the orders that are due to ship today are made.

News on the street:

The new Premo colors are now available in several online shops and Munro’s Craft locally. Hopefully more of the brick and mortar stores will have them soon, too. Look out Michael’s ! First 4/$5 sale you have with the new colors in stock will have me hopping like a one legged man in a butt kicking contest. LOL For now, I am lucky enough to have clay pals that live near Munro’s in Detroit that can go there and pick it up for me πŸ™‚ Thank you Claudia and Kimba !!! You’re the best !

Just read on Facebook that the Kato Polyclay line may be getting expanded. New colors are being looked at and they want your opinions. What new colors would you like to see most? Tony, the wiz behinds the scenes at Kato Polyclay, has shared some fabulous color mix recipes for metallic clay you can find on Facebook, too.

Christi Friesen’s new book Woodland Creatures is available for sale on her website or Polka Dot Creations. I got my copy a few days ago. πŸ™‚ In the back of the book it says that the next book in the lineup is Dogs. πŸ™‚ Can’t wait to get it.

I have a cute a Valentine’s Magnet tutorial I saw that I’d like to share. Fun project to do with your kids, student or just for yourself.

Sarajane Helm’s new book A Collection Of Polymer Clay Masks is also available. It’s a coffee table book, no projects, but what a great example of masks. All kinds of masks. And I have 7 in there πŸ™‚ I am so honored that Sarajane felt they were worthy. Purchase your autographed copy from Sarajane directly or you can find it at Amazon.com and get free shipping.

Where does the time go? And Facebook Friends Featured Artist: Noelia Contreras

I can’t believe it’s been 9 days since my last post. Seems like I was just here. It’s those *bleeping* Facebook games I tell you. They are addictive. LOL

It’s time to feature a Facebook Artist again. I haven’t done this in a while and need to get back to my weekly feature schedule.

This weeks artist is Noelia Contreras πŸ™‚
Noelia is one talented and versatile clayer. Not only does she make the yummiest looking mini food



But she canes



and makes jewelry too




She also does some fabulous bead work, but you’ll have to wander on over to Noelia’s Flickr Gallery to see it and the rest of her incredible work. πŸ™‚
She also has an Etsy Shop
and a blog you might like to follow.

Yetta’s Hollow Donut Cabachons

It’s a technique that Donna Kato learned from Yetta in New Jersey. As Donna said “Her (Yetta’s) solution is elegant, efficient, simple and pretty much foolproof.” I must say, I may not have a donut cutter (yet), but I see the possibilities with any cutter. And I am tickled to say that Donna used the silk screen stencils I made and sent to her last year on the donuts pictured below. πŸ™‚
