There’s nothing that gets me in the mood for spring more than creating my very own polymer clay spring color palette. Over on my FaceBook page this past week I asked for your suggestions on what makes a good Spring Color palette. The answers varied widely, but most of you felt that pastels were a must. So without further ado, I bring you this polymer clay spring color palette.
There’s something about the sunrise and sunset that I not only love, but also deeply inspires me, especially during the spring and summer season. This polymer clay spring color palette was created from a palette I was inspired by over at colorpalettes.net. Unfortunately, as of the writing of this article, I can not seem to locate the palette number on their website. [If you would like to learn how to make your own palette from a photo you can do so here.]
I created this palette to match the photo almost exactly as I loved this palette so much. The only difference I made was I made the grey significantly darker. Why? I feel that in all my color palettes I like to have at least one dark neutral. This polymer clay spring palette is on the cool side and I love it for that, I hope you do too. Enjoy!
Spring Color Palette Cards
These Spring color palette cards are a pre-formatted PDF. Color Palette Cards are in printable PDF format with “cut lines” to make a 4×6 card to take with you into your studio or store in a recipe box. This Spring color palette includes 5 colors I have created for the Premo! by Sculpey polymer clay line. Each card contains both a preview of the color palette, color, and photo of the color recipe before blending. Each card also contains the recipe, tested variations you can make to alter the color recipe, as well as a few things that you can try with your color recipe.

Blends & More
Don’t forget that when making your individual recipes that you can make as much of each color as you’d like so that you can create gorgeous blends to make canes, backgrounds, and more!
To make the blend shown at the left I used: storm, sunrise, white, peaches n’ cream, white, & lemonade.
Thanks for joining me today,

The color palettes site is dangerous! I lost at least an hour on there, finally emerging with far too many images saved for later playing.
Oh, and in there I found this one: #1715.
Now to stop dithering… -really- close those tabs down, and get back to work. The dragons won’t make themselves!
