Blue Hydrangea Palette by Polymer Clay Tutor1-B: Baby Blue
Blue Hydrangea
Powder Blue
Indigo Blue

Is there anything more peaceful than a collection of Blue Hues? I mean, just think of all the lovely things in this world that are Blue… the sky on a warm clear day… the refreshing pool of water at the base of a waterfall… a cuddly blue blanket wrapped around a new born… and a big enameled jug filled with gorgeous fluffy heads of Blue Hydrangeas. Picture those things and you will instantly feel at ease.

That’s how I feel when I look at this photo of Blue Hydrangeas, taken at the KOA Kampground in Astoria Washington, last Summer on our first PcT Roadtrip. In fact just thinking about that trip right now makes me want to pack up right this minute and get out on our next trip! We do have plans for another PcT Roadtrip brewing as we speak, but there is still lots of work to do before then. Meanwhile, I’ll just breath in the beauty of this photo until we can collect some more!

Blue Hydrangea Color Palette by Polymer Clay Tutor

Everyone who is subscribed to our Polymer Clay Guest List will be able to download the following recipes free, one per week on Friday mornings during the month of May 2013:

  • Baby Blue (Recipe 060-1B)
  • Blue Hydrangea (Recipe 060-2B)
  • Powder Blue (Recipe 060-3B)
  • Indigo Blue (Recipe 060-4B)

[wp_ad_camp_1]Baby Blues is the brightest and most turquoise blue in this palette and was pulled from the highlights caused by the sun hitting the petals of this huge blossom head. Blue Hydrangea is a softer mid-toned blue shade, representative of the center of the blooms. Powder Blue is the light and slightly dustier shade also found in the highlights of the petals. And Indigo Blue is the darkest and slightly purplish hue, found in the deepest shadiest parts of these Hydrangea flower heads.

The recipes described above are from the Volume-060 B-Series Palette. They are free to download for everyone subscribed to my Polymer Clay Guest List, Friday Email Newsletter.

I love all the color palletes you have created for us and always look forward to seeing what you come up with. ~Jeanne-C

An interesting thing has gradually been happening to me over the past 6 months, since I joined Cindy’s group. I’m beginning to appreciate colors that I always disliked before. This is something that never happened to me in over 20 years of decorative painting! I think it’s because of the way that Cindy groups the four colors together in such a pleasing combination. ~Linda-K

I confess to only recently beginning to use my own colour mixes. I just was never brave enough before… your mixes make life even more easy… and less stressful… and now I feel even braver. ~Julz-M

    For years – when asked what’s my favorite color I’d say green or orange
    But after sanding and sorting those 889 beads it seems I reach for blue more often than any thing else – go figure
    This new blue palette will most likely find it’s way into a set of beads as soon as we get them all collected

    OT – the young man next to me in my profile picture (as most of you know-lol) is my nephew Jason. Well he and his mama and papa (my little brother) flew in from Germany last week for a visit!!! We have been having a Great time doing crafts. One of them, of course was making beads and pendents with polymer clay – Good Times.

    Thanks for this lovely set of colors Cindy.I associate every month with a different color.. April was yellow, Daffodils, Primroses and those dreaded Dandelions that pop up to seek the spring sunshine.

    May is BLUE.. Bluebells are out in the woods, Grape Hyacinths in the garden and not forgetting our little Forget-me-Not. Today I did some retail therapy. Got a Indigo blue pair of gardening gloves. A baby blue cotton summer top then went mad and got a pair of cropped trousers in, you have guessed it denim blue,, but wait for it, they were covered in white daisies. Oh and last month painted the bathroom sky blue with pale yellow tiles.(. And I am five foot two with eyes of blue)………cheers xx

    Beautiful color palette Cindy. I love the color blue. Thank you for coming up with all the beautiful colors.

    Dear Cindy, I am fascinated with the idea of making a multimedia project using painters cotton stretched canvas, acrylic paints, and sculpting on canvas with polymer clay, both solid and liquid. I’m sure embellishments would also be involved like photo transfers, beads, bits of this and that, etc. I’ve been doing my best to find more information as to baking the clay in the oven on the canvas as opposed to making the polymer pieces separately and gluing already fired pieces to the canvas. Can you offer me any information or point me towards any of your Peeps who might have already tried this. I know there out there.
    Thanks Layne

    Hi Layne, I personally have not baked polymer clay on a canvas before, but you are right, others have. A fellow Canadian artist by the name of Gera Scott Chandler does mixed media pieces like you describe and I think she may just bake her clay directly onto her canvases. Her a link to her blog where you can look her up. Tell her I sent you. If she can’t help, she might be able to point you in the right direction. Good luck!
