Sunset Skinner Blend
Spring is here and in NW PA that means that we often have some of the most vibrant sunsets of the year. Here’s a sunset skinner blend recipe that mimics the color palette of the setting sun; I’ve aptly named it “Sunset” … imagine that.
Polymer Clay Color Recipe for Sunset Skinner Blend
Color recipe uses Premo! polymer clay by Polyform.
- 1 Part White
- 2 Parts Cadmium Yellow
- 1 Part Orange
- 1 Part Red
- 2 Parts Fuchsia
- 1 Part Purple
Make the sections of your skinner blend as show in the photo at right. There are “unnecessary” colors in this palette, however, because I wanted strong oranges and burgundy, this is the palette I have chosen.
*The effect shown is after approximately 35 passes through my pasta machine.
Ideas for Variations
- Add more white to the entire blend to soften the sunset effect.
- Darken the sunset by adding a strip of black to the blend.
- Make the sunset translucent by adding translucent clay to the entire blend.
