Pink Sedum Palette | Premo Color Recipes Vol-063-A

Pink Sedum Palette by Polymer Clay Tutor1-A: French Lilac
2-A: Pink Sedum

3-A: Raspberry Tea
4A: Vintage Coke Bottle

Nothing like a Pink Sedum flower to bring out such a wide variety of colors in a single head! From a Dusty Lilac, to a Hot Pink, to a deep Dark Red, all on a powdery Coke Bottle Green stem. If you saw these colors on their own, you might never believe they were in the same pink flower.

That is the thing that thrills me about nature. The colors and the combinations are sometimes so unreal, that if you didn’t have proof of them in a photo, you might never quite believe it were true.

I love how these seemly unrelated colors are visually mixed into a complex pink, when they are together on the big flower head. Makes me think this color combination would look great in a highly complex pattern, such as an intricate Kaleidoscope Cane. I think it could be quite stunning, and look forward to seeing what all of you come up with, using this palette.

I hope you enjoy this fun Summer 2013 color palette for the Vol-063-A recipe series!

Pink Sedum Palette by Polymer Clay Tutor

The following Vol-063 A-series Pink Sedum color palette will be added to the Polymer Clay Members Library at the beginning of August 2013:

  • French Lilac (Recipe 063-1A)
  • Pink Sedum (Recipe 063-2A)
  • Raspberry Tea (Recipe 063-3A)
  • Vintage Coke Bottle (Recipe 063-4A)


¬†French Lilac is the dark, dusty lilac color, found amongst the petals of this lovely Sedum Flower. Pink Sedum is the hot, hot, hot pink dancing around in the blossom, showing off its electric personality. Raspberry Tea is the deep red of the petals when they are still tightly pulled together… before they open up… and brighten up. And Vintage Coke Bottle is the soft, powdery green of the stems and of an empty bottle of Coke after a hot Summer’s day, working in the garden… if it was still the 50’s that is.

I’m not sure if I enjoy your colors or your discriptions more… but I always find the beauty that you guys share with us inspiring. ~Tantesherry

Cindy, your love of nature shows through in so many ways with your artistic talents. Your color recipes are just beautiful. A lovely way to start my day. ~Joyce-M

Wow!  These colors made me catch my breath-just so beautiful. And the way you describe the colors is artistry in itself Cindy. There must be a poet in you somewhere. ~Angela-M

    Love this months palette Cindy – I’ve been making kaleidoscope canes these past few weeks and turning them into barrettes using your nail head technique ….so that’s what I saw in my head when I clicked ‘read more’ …where you saw these colors in a complex k-cane too. Your teaching skills work so well, I see and apply them sometimes w/o even knowing it:)

  2. Cindy Lietz, 22 July, 2013

    Thanks Sherry! These color palettes are perfect for using in Kaleidoscope canes. You know the colors will go well together because they were designed that way.

    I appreciate your kind words about my teaching style. I am so glad that you are growing and that you are combining the things that you learn here, to come up with your own unique voice. Great job!

    Also, thanks for commenting! I think people have gotten so used to getting these recipes that they don’t think to come by and say something about them. I love to get feed back… it is the only way I know if I am on the right track or not. So thank you for adding your opinion!

    Love this palette; it’s gorgeous. So vibrant, jewel colors! I have some photos of flowers from when I went home to India; I will post them on the FB page. Cindy, I’m sure you would be able to come up with some pretty palettes. I miss claying and working with chainmail and wire. At the moment I’m only able to do some beading; It’s 4 and a half months now but I’m still in a lot of pain and have muscle spasms and fluid in the abdominal area. The break in my back has pretty much healed but the nerve pain is still unbearable. I’m trying not to take the morphine as it puts me to sleep so I’m switching to homeopathic – it helped me on the India trip. I still can’t lift my hands or lift anything, feel my back being pulled apart. I have to be performing on Sat for Filipino day and though I love doing it, it’s going to be painful.

  4. Cindy Lietz, 23 July, 2013

    Thanks Cherie! Glad to here you are back, safe and sound, though am sad to know you are still in so much pain. I hope that you can heal quickly and get back to claying real soon! Your flower pictures sound lovely. Looking forward to seeing them!

    So sorry to hear about your pain Cherie, let’s hope that in time you will heal. I have trouble too as have lost feeling in the first two fingers of my right hand.They do not pain but I am now very limited in what I can do, but I can say I really love the pink Sedum palette. so thanks Cindy for all your mixing skills. Looking forward to August and using these lovely colours…… cheers……..xx

    Cherie Doll, I can so empathize with you on your back pain. I do pray and hope you will get better and get some relief. It took almost 2 yrs for me but it did get better if that is any consolation at all. :) Cindy, I love this new color palette. It’s perfect for summer, Sherry and I must be on the same wave length because I am also into making Kaleidescope Canes and into more color combos. I would like to know if you or anyone else in our group has used colored ink pens or any other medium to color in baked clay designs, what brand works best and best ways to do this. I have used chalks but am looking for a brighter more colorful technique especially doing faces. One suggestion I received was using the new color line of India inks and different sizes of pen nibs for sketching but that would be a little expensive to start out with. So if anyone has suggestions please send them my way and Cindy maybe this could turn into a Tutorial?

  7. Cindy Lietz, 25 July, 2013

    Hi Dixie Ann, I have not tried India Inks on polymer clay yet… so I too would be interested to hear if any one else has tried them. Great suggestion!

  8. Rosemarie F, 26 July, 2013
