Polymer Clay Color Recipe for Mermaid Teal by KatersAcres

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. Mermaid Teal has shown to be one of them. It has been used by other artists, revisited consistently, and has been well-traveled on Pinterest. So today, I thought that I would take a minute and share with you a printable version of the color recipe so you can continue to use it.

The Flight of the Macaws

Posted on Leave a comment

This month I wanted to try and do something new, fun, & different. Every once in a while I get so inspired by photos I take in nature that I feel the need to try my hand at making my own. This month, that’s exactly what happened. Last fall I went on vacation and saw a gorgeous display of tropical Macaws at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. I was even quick enough to capture a perfect photo of multiple birds of paradise in flight. This whole month’s tutorials for Club Members are based around this photo.

French Parker with Eiffel Tower by KatersAcres

With the shock of the pandemic and coronavirus making its way around the globe, most of the world is stuck ‘sheltering in place.’ Here in the United States, this means most of us are only allowed away from our homes for essential needs unless your job is deemed necessary and essential by your state. With so much sadness, stress, and unrest, I thought this month would be best served if we all just took a vacation! But since we can’t really do that, let’s take a virtual one … to Paris!

2018 Polymer Clay Challenge

2018 Polymer Clay Challenge with KatersAcres

The Mrs – Altered Paint Brush

The 2018 Polymer Clay Challenge is here! Once again, last year’s 2017 Polymer Clay Challenge was a great success. Even more people were able to successfully able to complete all 52 weeks of the challenge! Unfortunately this year, I was not one of them. I was able to successfully complete 40 of the 52 weeks. This is the most weeks I have left unfinished of any year. But … as I encourage EACH of you that participate, do not beat yourself up over this, just keep pushing on and creating. As usual, I will attempt again in 2018 to complete the challenge.

What Is the 2018 Polymer Clay Challenge?

I have been hosting the Polymer Clay Challenge for going on 5 years now. The Polymer Clay Challenge is first and foremost a commitment. It is a commitment by YOU the clayer that you will work with polymer clay and complete no less than one item per week. Why would we do such a thing? Why not more and why not less? More is great but can strain our creativity and cause burnout in many people. One item a week turns out to be just 52 items a year and not too hard for most of us to handle and for most does not cause burnout.
