Polymer Clay Color Recipes | Hawaiian Breeze Asiatic Lily Palette

Tuscan Pottery Polymer Clay Color Palette

1B – Hawaiian Lily
2B – Golden Tan
3B – Driftwood
4B – Rusty Shovel

Today’s color palette was inspired by this beautiful Yellow Asiatic Lily that bloomed for the first time last week, along my front garden path. It was a gift from a close friend and I was so pleased to see it thriving, that I just had to make some Premo color recipes for all of you.

The recipes for each of the 4 colors in today’s Hawaiian Lily Color Palette, will be released during the month of August in Volume-015 [B-series]. Everyone who is subscribed to my Polymer Clay Guest List will be able to download them for free:

  • Hawaiian Lily (Recipe 015-1B)
  • Golden Tan (Recipe 015-2B)
  • Driftwood (Recipe 015-3B)
  • Rusty Shovel (Recipe 015-4B)

Hawaiian Lily is the soft breezy Yellow, found in the petals of this beautiful Lily blossom. Golden Tan is a deeper more muted yellow that warms and supports the brighter Yellow hue. Driftwood is a gray brown neutral that is reminiscent of a floating log of driftwood which grounds and neutralizes the yellows. Rusty Shovel is the color picked up from the stamens of the lily and reminds one of the beloved yet worn rusty shovel, used to plant the lily into the soil.

    Gorgeous lilly and gorgeous colours – I have a fab lilly flowering in my garden too – shame its white! But what a scent!
    Thanks Cindy – I’m desperate to try the torn paper beads but am amassing so many beads that I’m really going to have to brush up on my jewellery making skills so I can shift some necklaces, bracelets and earrings to make room for more ‘experiments’. Must admit to be struggling with all the different types of cording, cord ends and clasps and which wire goes with which. I have made a few wrapped wire earrings but so far nothing else.
    You asked us re wire wrapping and wirework videos – were there enough people requesting them? I’m just asking as I’m wondering whether to invest in a jewellery making book.

    i am newer to claying and i love this, i was wondering if you all have anything like a forum to talk to other claying artists. Thanks

    @Polyanya: I’m so glad to hear you have made lots of great beads. As far as jewelry projects to make with your beads, I will be adding wire working and jewelry making videos from time to time in the polymer clay library. But the bulk of the videos will be primarily focused on bead making. I am talking with other companies that focus on the jewelry making side of things and will be able to recommend some good information in the future. But for now there are tons of beading and wire working magazines, books and websites available out there. Webstores, such as Fire Mountain Gems, even have free videos on basic jewelry making skills. Your local library will also have jewelry making books that you can take out and learn from. Eventually this site will be a ‘one-stop-shop’ that has everything you need from beginning to end as far as making bead jewelry. But for now I can only be focused on bringing you what I do best and that is videos on how to make polymer clay beads. Another option, if you are amassing too many beads, is to consider selling them as beads to other jewelry designers. Many bead artists have made successful careers out of strictly selling their beads.

    @Stephanie: Welcome to the community Stephanie. For now anyway, my forum is this blog. Every day I publish articles on new topics. In the comments section for each of these articles you will find lots of very supportive clayers to chat with. If you are looking for information on certain topics, use the search feature. If the articles don’t answer your question, simply post a question in the comments section and someone will respond.

    Those are so fabulous!!! Oh how happy colors make me!

    Thank you Cindy for your help. I like the idea of selling beads. Cane buttons is another potential. I have looked at loads and loads of web-sites and a few books re jewellery making. Think thats part of the problem – I just have to dive in and start doing it and not procrastinate. Lol!
