Polymer Clay Color Recipes | Metallic Dots Palette [Premo Sculpey]

Metallic Dots Polymer Clay Color Palette

1B: Minty Shimmer
Island Jewel
Caribbean Coast


When I saw this photo that Doug took of these cool metallic dots on the side of a building, I thought it was so cool!

There is just something so mesmerizing about these huge, Turquoise Blue dots. It’s like they are giant Dragonfly eyes peering down at you. Or the insides of enormous, shimmering, Blue shells. And look how the other buildings are reflected in each circle. Isn’t that almost futuristic looking?

So with all this inspiration, I decided to make a Metallic/Pearlescent color palette for you guys. Hope you enjoy it.



PETITION UPDATE: A big thank you to Polyform regarding their decision to keep the Cobalt Blue and Zinc Yellow colors of Premo Polymer Clay in production. And also… a big thanks to everyone who participated in last week’s, “Save Cobalt Blue, Zinc Yellow, Sea Green” … virtual petition.



The recipes for each of the following 4 Metallic/Pearlescent colors will be released during the month of December in Volume-031 [B-series]. Everyone who is subscribed to my Polymer Clay Guest List will be able to download them for free. They will be emailed to you one per week on Friday mornings.


  • Minty Shimmer (Recipe 031-1B)
  • Island Jewel (Recipe 031-2B)
  • Caribbean Coast (Recipe 031-3B)
  • Dragonfly (Recipe 031-4B)



Minty Shimmer is the Silver Gray Mint color found near the bottom edge of the Metallic Dots. Island Jewel has hints of Turquoise and Pearl that could be found in a sparkling tropical Ocean, and is the highlight color on the disc. Caribbean Coast is a pearly soft Blue found on the lightest parts of the circles. And Dragonfly is the glistening Purple Blue found along the rim of the dots but also in the eyes of a Dragonfly.

The recipes described above are from the Volume-031 B-Series Palette. They are free to download, for everyone subscribed to my Polymer Clay Guest List.

You know, if you ever decide to give up clay, you’d probably be very successful at Interior Design. Your color palettes are awesome. ~Katie-C

I love your beads and recipe cards, and am always so amazed at your ability to work with color. You are special!!! ~Sandra-G

An interesting thing has gradually been happening to me over the past 6 months, since I joined Cindy’s group.  I’m beginning to appreciate colors that I always disliked before. This is something that never happened to me in over 20 years of decorative painting! I think it’s because of the way that Cindy groups the four colors together in such a pleasing combination. ~Linda-K
