Winter Snow Storm – Premo Color Recipe

Winter Snow Storm Polymer Clay Color Recipe

I’ve written color recipes for polymer clay for a long time here on the blog. I use mostly Premo polymer clay in my studio, so I specifically write recipes for Premo polymer clay. All polymer clay artists have favorite color recipes or colors that they turn to and mix up often. I’ve whipped this color up many times in my studio as it’s a nice, deep, could quasi-purple-blue that will make heads turn. I hope you enjoy it and use it often.

I’m blessed to own several pairs of Jayne’s earrings and a brooch and wear each with pride. Jayne is a lovely person inside and out and it’s my joy to have her here with us today.

2021 Polymer Clay Challenge

Posted on 4 Comments

2020 was quite a year for many people. When the year kicked off, never did anyone think we would be thrust into a global Pandemic, let alone that it would rage on for the entirety of the year. For many, completing a challenge, or working toward a goal on a hobby was the last thing on their mind. This year, I hope that art would encourage, inspire, uplift, and bring peace and joy into your life. I’ve always said that your art (whether polymer clay or something else) should make you happy. If it doesn’t … then why are you doing it?
