Premo Polymer Clay Recipe for Rose Gold

Rose Gold Color Recipe by KatersAcres

Many polymer artists, especially those who are making series or duplicates of items, rely on color recipes to make uniform pieces.  For those of you who have been with me for awhile now, you know that I rarely use recipes.

Creating a Coordinating Color Palette

‘How to make your own color palette’ can sound difficult, right? Well, I am part of a lot of different polymer clay groups on FaceBook. Some I am more active on than others, and some I just lurk. Last week, someone asked how to make a color palette. There were lots of ideas thrown out, many of which were great. Most of my items are made from custom color palettes that coordinate.

Creative Road Blocks

As I write this post, my to do list has seemingly over 1 million things on it to get done.  Jeepers. I really don’t like that feeling.  In fact, often it is so much of a barrier for me that become a severe road block to my creativity.  Are you the same way?  When you have a million things to do, where do you begin to get inspiration?  For me, I simply pick some colors that look nice together and see where that palette will take me.  Why I’m “dry” finding a striking color palette is the beginning of that “ah ha” moment for me in my studio.  Since this color palette was such an inspiration to me this week, I’m hoping that it will be a springboard to your own creativity.
