Golden Leaves Palette | Premo Color Recipes Vol-064-B

Golden Leaves Palette by Polymer Clay Tutor1-B: Golden Leaves
Butternut Squash
Baked Yams
Roasted Chestnuts

Doesn’t just the thought of Fall, with the crisp cool air, the cozy knit sweaters, golden colors of the leaves and the rich smell of roasted vegetables and nuts, make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside? It does for me.

So, when Doug showed me this picture he took of the autumn light filtering through some turning Golden Maple Leaves,  all I could think of was, these colors are so warm and beautiful, they would make the perfect Fall 2013 color recipe palette!

Golden Leaves 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 September 2013:

  • Golden Leaves (Recipe 064-1B)
  • Butternut Squash (Recipe 064-2B)
  • Baked Yam (Recipe 064-3B)
  • Roasted Chestnuts (Recipe 064-4B)

[wp_ad_camp_1]Golden Leaves is the warm golden yellow hue of the fall leaves with the sun filtering through them as they flutter and cling to the dormant Maple. Butternut Squash is the rich orange found in the leaves, which is similar in shade to the hearty chunks of a Butternut Squash in the broth of a flavorful beef stew. Baked Yams is the deep burnt orange in the shadowed folds of the leaves, and the color of hot and tender oven baked yam. And Roasted Chestnuts  is a nutty red brown of a bag of roasted chestnuts and the color of the branches as this tree prepares itself for the harsh Winter to come.

The recipes described above are from the Volume-064 B-Series Palette. They are free to download for everyone subscribed to my Polymer Clay Guest List, Friday Email Newsletter.

I just wanted to thank you for making the B color recipes free each week. Thanks from all the people who can’t afford to get them any other way. ~Deni-L

Hi Cindy.  Just got my gardening bulbs flowers catalog and I never will look at them the same. I have taken art classes in high school and I enjoy painting and now I’m learning from your color recipes how you are influenced by nature. Thanks for your inspiration. I also look forward to your tutorials every week. Very excited about what you are offering here. I can see it is a labor of love. Take care you two, so you can continue to offer more and more. ~Patty-J

Cindy this pallette is scrumpcious. I love the names you come up with each one, they just seem to fit them perfectly. I have printed everyone and had to go out and buy another receipe box to hold them all. I don’t get to mix each one, in fact I am way behind in that field but you keep coming up with such exciting projects I forget about making the color chips! I was just thinking about you reaching your 50th volume last week when I decided to do a spreadsheet on them all so I could find them by their “Group Headings”.  After I decided what those would be then I listed the Volume and the Video number it appeared in. It turned out to be one of the best things I could have done. Now I can find what I am looking for right away instead of clicking through all the videos trying to find the right one. Inserting a new one is so easy too, all I have to do is decide what Heading it goes under and pop it into the new row. 50 volumes of videos is a lot and I decided if I am going to be collecting another 50 or 100 or 200 I needed to get organized. Anyone can do this too, by using a card file if they don’t have any spreadsheet experience. So congratulations Cindy and Doug on your 50th volume and I am so looking forward to the next 50, 100, 200?? ~DixieAnn-S

    Perfect Fall pallette Cindy, what a beautiful choice for September. Watching dawn come up over the horizon and reading about this new set of colors, my mind is scrambling now to see what I can do with them but can’t get past those rich descriptions of baked yams, roasted chestnuts and oh how I love butternut squash. Heck with it, I’m gonna go get something to eat! :)

  2. Cindy Lietz, 26 August, 2013

    Me too Dixie Ann, just writing out the descriptions made me hungry too! I love all kinds of roasted squashes, but butternut squash is one of my favorites!

    As my mom would say ”these are your colors Sherry” and she would be right;)
    I do own a shirt with these colors and wearing it the other day my pharmacist a lady, said basically the same thing – ”you should wear those colors more often”

    These are Beautiful Cindy, and not to wish September away– but I wish I had them all right now lol

    OT just took my mom to a local shop (we live in a tourist town) to pick up licorice…Any way I was wearing one of my ponytail band cover-uppers barrette(Really needs a better name!!) and the owner ask about selling them — Totally doing the happy dance :D

  4. Cindy Lietz, 26 August, 2013

    Happy to hear these are your colors Sherry! :) That is so cool that the shop owner wants to carry your Ponytail Barrettes! They are beautiful, no wonder they would like to sell them. You should be very proud!

  5. Tante Sherry, 27 August, 2013

    Thank you Cindy!!
    Once again you have taken something difficult and made it easy
    just like you do with your polymer clay tutorials
    Ponytail Barrette sounds a lot better, easier to say and still gives the meaning of what it does
    Ponytail band cover-upper barrette just does not flow off the tounge like Ponytail Barrette:)

  6. Dixie Ann, 27 August, 2013

    whoo-hoo Sherry, I hope you sell a bunch! Did we get to see a photo of them?

  7. Jocelyn C, 27 August, 2013

    Dixie, she has some of them displayed on Cindy’s FB site and they are gorgeous.

  8. Dixie Ann, 27 August, 2013

    Sherry, your pony tail barrettes are just gorgeous. You did a great job on those canes. You always do. Wow, I’m so glad to hear you might sell them. I sure would buy one. :) You go girl.

  9. Tante Sherry, 28 August, 2013

    you guys have made my day!!!! Hugs to you all:)
