Out On A Limb Palette | Premo Color Recipes Vol-065-B

Out On A Limb Palette by Polymer Clay Tutor1-B: Antennae
Fir Needles

So… isn’t this just the cutest thing? I mean this snail is really going out on a limb to bring you a great photo inspiration for your next color recipe palette! LOL

Gosh, I don’t know about you, but it’s seems to me that it would be a pretty risky endeavor to head on out, upside down on a flimsy little Fir needle even if you had a super sticky belly. Wouldn’t catch me doing that!

Since this little guy was so brave to do this stunt just for the photo op, the least I could do was make a color recipe palette with the pic… don’t you think?

Any who… I hope you enjoy these awesome earthy colors for the upcoming B-Series color palette for the Month of October 2013!

Out On A Limb 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 October 2013:

  • Antennae (Recipe 065-1B)
  • Snail (Recipe 065-2B)
  • Fir Needles (Recipe 065-3B)
  • Evergreen Tree (Recipe 065-4B)

[wp_ad_camp_1]Antennae is the dark steel blue found in the shimmery highlights where the sunlight hits the Snail’s antennae. Snail is the dark blue brown of the Snail’s body and dark splotches on his shell. Fir Needles is the frosted pale teal that is the powdery coating on the needles of the Fir Tree. And Evergreen Tree is the soft tan green of the evergreen branch limbs that this daring Snail, so precariously ventures out on.

The recipes described above are from the Volume-065 B-Series Palette. They are free to download for everyone subscribed to my Polymer Clay Guest List, Friday Email Newsletter.

Cindy, I definitely prefer your nature-inspired palettes! Your original colours are subtle and come from personal involvement in the beauty that surrounds you and your family. While I am certain I would love any new direction you wanted to experiment with, I believe other PC enthusiasts are dabbling in (and selling) Pantone-based palettes. I appreciate your soliciting the opinions of your members. I will continue to enjoy whatever colours you offer, but I am firmly on the side of “Mother Nature”, who gifts us with infinite variety, as opposed to a technical schedule of arbitrary shades in a preset framework. Looking forward to your “personal vision” of Spring 2012! ~Monique-U

Hi Cindy, thank you for all the hard work you put into coming up with these color recipes. Your work is truly amazing. ~Karen-R

How very useful… thank you! 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

    This one gets my vote for most original inspiration photo (colours are superb as always!)

  2. Cindy Lietz, 07 October, 2013

    LOL! He was definitely a compelling subject! Can you imagine hanging upside down by your sticky belly? :)

    After taking Maggio Maggio’s Smashing Color Class in Portland Oregon I now understand the how to’s of mixing colors a whole lot more. I also understand that you take time in making your pallets and I appreciate your hard work. I also understand now how to make colors using cobalt blue, zinc yellow and magenta. I also understand the fact that you take the time to give us colors that are available by premo so we can better use the product. Thank you so much for the hard work you put into everything. I know I will improve with all this new knowledge and understanding of color and color choices.

    In addition to Cindy’s tutes- I too took Maggie Maggio’s class here in
    Tucson ( thru our Guild). Between the two of them “we are color savvy “.

  5. Cindy Lietz, 07 October, 2013

    Maggie is definitely a color master! A lot of her knowledge goes way over most people’s heads, but she sure knows her stuff. You guys were privileged to get to learn from her.

  6. Dixie Ann, 30 September, 2013

    Great color pallette Cindy. Have been mixing your receipes for days now and realize how much work you put into them. Thanks so much for another great one!

  7. Maria, 01 October, 2013

    Beautiful colors- thank you, yet again, Cindy! : )

  8. Pattw, 02 October, 2013

    Nature is so inspiring -just ask the lowly snail!! Color is everywhere -you teach us how to “LOOK”. Thanks for all your hard work!!!!!!!

  9. Debbie R, 04 October, 2013

    I do not know what I would do with out my Cindy Lietz. Thank you.

  10. LaTisha C, 07 October, 2013

    I appreciate all this good information :) I am looking forward to making some colors from your recipes.

    Is there a video on your channel that explains on how to read and do the recipe cards?

  11. Cindy Lietz, 07 October, 2013

    How to Read and Do the PcT Recipe Cards

    Great that we are able to collect the “B” series colour recipes, and yes Cindy we really appreciate the time and effort both you and Doug put in to making and filming all your work. The monthly videos are the best. Nobody else mixes up such wonderful colour recipes and explains so well how to measure out the amounts so easily. I use to use a tiny set of scales to weigh out my portions, but when I saw your method I was converted!! So if anyone out there is hesitant in signing up to PCT wait no longer remember, Cindy really cares and it shows. Best value, great hints and tips and beautifully finished items are what this great site is all about. Love it…….cheers xx.
