Polymer Clay Color Recipes | Lily Bud Palette (Premo Sculpey Clay)

Lily Bud Polymer Clay Color Palette

1B – Lily Bud
2B – Peaceful Garden
3B – Quiet Turquoise
4B – Mystic Morning

I am always amazed at the color transformations that happen in the garden. Colors which begin quiet and peaceful like the soft greens, blues and peach tones in the lily bud photo above; Can become vibrant and outspoken later on as the flowers open up and mature. You can get a glimpse of the vibrant colors these unassuming lily buds ended up blossoming into, at this link: Day Lily Coral Palette

The recipes for each of the 4 colors in today’s Lily Bud Color Palette, will be released during the month of Sept in Volume-016 [B-series]. Everyone who is subscribed to my Polymer Clay Guest List will be able to download them for free:

  • Lily Bud (Recipe 016-1B)
  • Peaceful Garden (Recipe 016-2B)
  • Quiet Turquoise (Recipe 016-3B)
  • Mystic Morning (Recipe 016-4B)

Lily Bud is the serene peach color of the new forming Day Lily bud. Peaceful Garden is the soft yet bright green at the base of each bud. Quiet Turquoise is the tranquil of the tiniest buds as they are beginning to form. And Mystic Morning is the blue-green stems supporting the blooms.

    Pretty! Am I right in thinking that you can eat daylilies?

  2. Anna Sabina, 25 August, 2009

    Some people put the buds in salads. You can do same with nastersium (spelling-?).
    I have also heard of people frying zucchini blossoms and “fiddleheads” which are the new ferns coming up through the ground.
    the color palette is really pretty.

    I like edible flowers! Nasturtium flowers and leaves are nice in salads (quite “peppery”) and I like zucchini flowers too (except we call them courgettes here).

    I saw a salad on TV once that was almost entirely made of flowers and it looked amazing. I went into the garden straight away and picked flowers off chives, borage, calendula, primroses, lawn daisies, clover, nasturtiums, dandelions – you name it, if I knew it was edible I picked it! Some are not so nice (daisies), but others I definitely liked. Yeah okay, I’m crazy. ;)

    Oh my! I like all your color paletts Cindy but these are simply stunning!! I love them.
    Silverleaf@ I think it is cool that you eat flowers. :) Don’t forget rose hips.

  5. Jocelyn, 25 August, 2009

    Cindy, all these fantastic colors from your garden make me want to see more of it. Do you think you could share some more pictures? You folks seem to be “in the zone” for perfect lilies, and I am dying to see what else is growing out there, LOL!

    Hi There! I saw your comment on Shade Tree art and I wanted to thank you for that! I may try to make a tatting shuttle from your suggestions! Since I saw her polymer clay tatting shuttles I’ve thought I might try it, but it’s good to see what a polymer clay expert has to say! Thank you! :)

    I love ALL the color palettes. But I only get the free ones. Oh well better than nothing at all. Cindy you have a knack for mixing those beautiful colors, thanks for sharing some free ones. Lynn W.

    Roll on September. Had some beads but I had no idea what to put with them these colours are just perfect. Cindy your a genius.

  9. Cindy Lietz, 31 August, 2009

    Thank you everyone! This is a very different palette for me. The colors are much softer and muted than my usual colors. Am going to enjoy working with them!

    @Silverleaf and Anna: Be careful which flowers you eat. Make sure you know for sure which are edible and which are poisonous. I actually have some deadly flowers as well as edible flowers in my garden, so I am quite careful which ones I pick for salads. Wouldn’t want to kill off my family and guests with a pretty salad! LOL

    @Jocelyn: You would be quite disappointed with the state of my garden right now. Sure if you take a closeup of an individual flower, it looks grand. But the big picture shows there’s a lot of pruning and weeding to do! Unfortunately I have been too busy to do a good job on it this year.

    @tattingchic: Thanks for your comment. Those tatting shuttles were gorgeous! Since it does go through some stress, you will need to experiment a little with design and follow my suggestions for giving your polymer clay shuttles the strength they will need to stand up to the wear. Practice with scrap clay until you get a design that works. Do let me know how it goes and do make sure to ask for help, if you need it!

    @lynn: I’m glad you enjoy the recipes. Membership to the Polymer Clay Library is less than $4 a month if you want to get the rest of the recipes plus all the videos. I think you would really enjoy getting them.

    @Josie: Thank you! You made my day!

  10. Kelly, 10 September, 2009

    WOW!! Beautiful colors!! Cindy, have you thought about creating a recipe book with all your colors so far and maybe a few exclusive ones? ;)

  11. Cindy Lietz, 26 September, 2009

    Yes I have thought about publishing a color recipe book, Kelly… if only there was more time in each day to get everything done that I would like to be able to get done.
