In today’s video, I’m going to talk about the new 2016 colors recently added to the Sculpey Souffle product line.
First I’ll show you the colors… then explain the qualities of Souffle clay… the color shifts when baking… how the colors fit into the existing color line… and my own personal thoughts on what Souffle colors I would like to see added in the future.
This video is kind of long, but there is a lot of good information, so I suggest you watch it from beginning to end.
In a nutshell…
I love the qualities of Souffle clay. It has a lovely micro suede type matte finish… has beautiful earthy colors… is a high quality all purpose clay that is compatible with Premo Sculpey and bakes at the same temperature.
The 4 new colors are Mocha, Guava, Cinnamon and Sage.
Mocha is a soft Blue based pastel Brown that sits between the Latte and Cowboy on the color chart. When baked, the mocha darkens very slightly.
Guava is a light pink Coral that is a half shade between So 80’s and Mai Tai. It shifts from the more Pink color that it is raw, to a slightly darker and more Coral color when baked.
Cinnamon is a dark rusty Orange that is pretty much just a darker version of Pumpkin. When baked, the color shift is little to none.
And Sage is a dusty, Gray Blue Green in a medium value quite similar to Pesto. When baked, it darkens so slightly that I really wouldn’t consider it a shift at all.
Although I really like the new colors, I feel that a couple of them were really too similar to what was already in the existing color line, and I would have chosen different colors first.
The next colors I would like to see added to the line are a true Blue… something darker, in the range of Ultramarine Blue that can be lightened with White. I’d also like to see another paler Yellow added, as well as few light shades of Purple… perhaps a Lilac or Violet. Also a bright yellow based Red, similar to a Cadmium Red would be wonderful to punch up the color line a bit and bring in a little more contrast.
