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.
You can use color recipes for anything you can dream up. Yep, anything! From sculptures to jewelry, and even canes! Toni Street made this gorgeous Flower Cane. It features Mermaid Teal on the outside edges of the flower petals. And don’t worry, if you’re totally in love with this (like I am) you can even get your own cane here.
I’ve used this color recipe for lots of things, including dragons, mermaids, and even (believe it or not) leaves! This color makes a great base. You can alter it to suit your tastes. Make it with a touch more purple, gold, or even turquoise as shown in Teak, the dragon at left.
Here’s a printable PDF version of the Mermaid Teal color recipe that you can print out and keep for yourself and store for all your projects in the future. Have fun and don’t forget to vary the recipe to suit your needs and your taste.
