New Premo Sculpey Colors For 2015

New 2015 Premo Sculpey Colors - Polymer Clay TutorVideo #690: Along with these eight new Premo Sculpey Colors for 2015, two colors have also been discontinued… Denim and Navy.

In this video I will share with you the new Premo Sculpey Colors for 2015.

The 2 new regular colors in the Premo line are Wisteria and Periwinkle. Wisteria is a soft Fuchsia based Purple… and Periwinkle is a pretty Purpley Blue. There is no color shift between baked and unbaked samples of these clays.

Coincidently, two other Premo Sculpey colors have been discontinued… Denim and Navy. I can’t help but wonder if this is an “out-with-the-old-and-in-with-the-new” strategy from Polyform.

There are also 2 new Pearl clays, that are very lovely. Sunset Pearl is a bright Coral Pearl color, and Graphite Pearl is a silvery Gray-Black Pearl… just like pencil graphite. These clays have high mica particle content and are good using with mica shift techniques.

Also, there are 3 new glitter clays. Rose Gold Glitter, White Gold Glitter and Yellow Gold Glitter. They are all somewhat translucent based clays with silver and gold glitters in them, each with a different base color. Rose Gold is a Coppery base, very similar to the man-made gemstone called Goldstone. White Gold Glitter has an Old Hollywood look of vintage Silverleaf. And Yellow Gold Glitter has a golden shimmer that is very pretty. They can be mixed in different combinations to create Champagne Gold and other pretty metallic derivatives. These clays look even more metallic when they are baked, than what they look like in the package.

Lastly, 1 new color, which actually should be in a Faux Stone category, is the new Opal. This is a translucent clay mixed with large flake Opalescent flakes that is translucent when baked. (You can easily make this clay yourself, using Premo White Translucent clay and Iridescent Glitter Flakes often known as Buffalo Snow.) Because the large flakes tends to “stick out” when you cut this “color” into shapes, it not suited for cane making. The protrusions would  leave drag marks in the cane when slicing through it. However, this new Opal clay is suited for making beads and cabochons… as well as for doing inlay techniques.

There are several new products by Sculpey for 2015 which I will share with you in upcoming videos, including the new Colored Liquid Polymer Clays – Silver and Gold.

    Hi Cindy,

    I used the dark blue glitter Premo about 6 months ago and I’m still trying to get it out of my pasta machine. I think it is all gone after several through cleanings and suddenly it shows up again and I have to pick it out. I find this very annoying and I don’t want to have to buy another machine just for glitter. What do you do?

    Thanks, Dulany

    I love the new glitter clay, especially when used in marbled sheets, where it shows up nicely in contrast with other solid colored clay. The effect in sunlight when covered with resin is really spectacular!
    I’d love a demo of the new templates. I bought the two sets available and have had some success with them, but my clay sheet stretches a little while I cut and distorts the shape. Any tips on that would be great! I’m also excited about the colored liquid clay, it looks like it’ll lend itself nicely to faux lampwork beads.

    I’m sorry to see navy discontinued. I’ve enjoyed using it. Seems like it hasn’t been around all that long. (?) I do like the new colors thought, especially the periwinkle; and sunset pearl and I can see me using that graphite pearl all the time.

    Question for anyone who has used the new glitters. Are those mica clays with glitter added or just glitter.

    Thanks for the demo Cindy! You’re so on top of things!

  4. Krithika P, 28 July, 2015

    Hi Dawn,

    None of the glitter clays are mica based. I watched the video and went to take a look at the White Gold Glitter (my favorite!) on my work table. As Cindy says, it seems to be a translucent based clay with lots and lots of glitter mixed in. Kind of like the Twinkle Twinkle or Blue glitter that Premo carries but with a LOT more glitter.

    Hope that helps!

    Thanks much Krithika!

    I’m so glad I went on a blue buying spree today! However, our stores still do not have the new colors, and I feel like the kid who asks “how long till Christmas?”. Since ordering them during the Summer months is just not a great idea, I feel like I may be waiting a while.

  7. Katie C, 31 July, 2015

    No more Denim already? I’ll have to look for the new colors tomorrow as long as we’re already at the craft store.

    I love the look of the opal clay, so I think I’ll mix some up this afternoon. Seems like it’d be easier to tint for fire or other colored opals before adding the flakes. I’ll try to remember to take notes.

    P.S. If anybody has opals on the brain but no Buffalo snow, I’m happy to send some to you.

    Ooh, how pretty would opal buttons be? Would they hold up with wear? Or would the inclusions cause problems? Maybe an opal shawl pin… I’ll have to try with and without a base layer and see what happens.

  8. Cindy Lietz, 04 August, 2015

    That is a very sweet off Katie! I have seen Christmas stuff in Costco already… so it won’t be too long before it will be in the stores again, but it is very kind of you to offer some of yours just in case. :) As far as Opal buttons, holding up… I can’t see it being much of a problem is they are thick enough… though as always, it wouldn’t hurt to test it to be sure!

  9. Katie, 04 August, 2015

    Jo-ann’s let me down on Saturday. No new colors yet :(
    Opal trials are still in progress. Three attempts were duds, and one maybe so far. Haven’t cured the last trial yet.

    Hi Cindy!

    So nice that you guys still have videos coming out even though you are so busy with the new improved website!

    My idea for a future tutorial is the tear away technique created by Gwen Gibson. I’ve been able to find books with the how to’s but it’s so much easier to learn from a video. Plus I can look forward to seeing how to use the technique in a project. Thanks for everything you do!

  11. Cindy Lietz, 04 August, 2015

    Hi Karen I believe that is the same technique that is also known as Etching Polymer Clay. I already have a tutorial on that if you are interested. Not sure how Gwen does it but it is a fairly simple technique to do.

  12. Karen S, 05 August, 2015

    Super Cindy! Yet another tute to add to my Must Have list. Thanks!

    Hi Cindy, I love all the new colors and purchased them from Sunnyday Crafts as soon as they were available. I am really going to miss the Navy premo. I wasn’t too keen on the denim. I haven’t used all of them yet so was happy to see you had a video on them today. Thanks for all the pro’s and con’s you voiced here on the new colors. So good to hear your comments on these new products.

  14. Cindy Lietz, 04 August, 2015

    Navy is pretty simple to replace… Sculpey’s replacement recipes is something like 20 parts Ultramarine Blue and 1 part Black… though I have found the amount of Black has to be adjusted up or down depending on what is best, when you are trying to fix a recipe that has Navy in it. I have just spent the last two weeks repairing old recipes with Denim and Navy in them. Denim was by far the hardest to fix… since it is such a complex color. The new fixed recipes will only be available when the new color recipe cards come out. Which will be a while yet… since it is a HUGE project.

    Hi Cindy,
    I love all the new colors and purchased all of them. Another product I have been purchasing a lot of is stamps. I am wondering if I use my stamps in the projects I intend on selling, is that breaking dome copyright rule?

  16. Cindy Lietz, 04 August, 2015

    Hi Janis, Most companies allow you to use the stamps to make something that you are going to sell, but won’t allow you to use the design to make more stamps with. You can contact the company or try and find their ‘Angel Policy” if you are worried about copyright issues.

  17. Doreen Neilley, 01 August, 2015

    Hey, Cindy, thanks very much for this video. I have been wondering what the new Opal actually looked like; I have only been able to see it in the package to this point. I really love the look of the new Pearls and metallic Glitters. Now I wait, to see whether the Michaels in Spruce Grove or Stony Plain get them in or not – they don’t carry a full line by any means – or whether I will have to wait for the fall to be able to mail order them. ;(

    It is really frustrating when Sculpey discontinues colours such as Denim and Navy. I hoard recipes, and now anything with those colours in will be obsolete. I know that you are really busy at the moment, but is it possible that in the future you might be able to have a go at devising replacement recipes for these two colours (and Sea Foam Green)? Denim I can probably get close to, but I really don’t have any idea where to start with trying to re-create Navy.

    And I was just in Edmonton yesterday! I could have whipped into Michaels and bought all that they had. Pooh bear!

  18. Cindy Lietz, 04 August, 2015

    Hi Doreen, Yeah the Opal looks a lot different when you use it, than it does in the package. Hopefully your stores will start carrying the new colors… I haven’t seen them in my local Michaels yet. You may just need to wait till Fall to get your hands on some alright.

    In regards to fixing the old recipes, Like I said to Dixie Ann above I have been working on that… It has been a huge job fixing all the colors that I could fix… the ones with Sea Green, Navy and Denim have been reworked, but a few recipes had to be discontinued all together because the colors it would take to mix the alternative recipes are also no longer available. There will be a charge for the new recipe cards we are putting together though (Beautiful new cards and photos in a pdf format), so if you can get your hands on some of the old clay colors, you may want to use them to mix up the recipes you have now, until you can’t get the colors at all anymore. I am sure it will take a while before everyone runs out of stock on those colors.
