Polymer Clay Color Recipe: Luminescent Skin

Polymer Clay Face Vase 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. Why? Because I like that all my pieces are different in color, that I don’t repeat colors, and that nothing I make is ever identical. To me it adds to the special nature of my sculptures. But I’m not the norm when it comes to polymer artists… However, this is my favorite recipe and I rely on it often, it’s how I like to make my skin for my figurines.
