Polymer Clay Color Recipes | Pansy Flower Spring Color Palette

Pansy Flower Polymer Clay Colors

3B-Lemon Zest

It’s time to start thinking about Spring jewelry beads and here is a perfect color palette to make them with. This vibrant fresh set of colors can be used beautifully in polymer clay flower canes as well as any other bead project you have in mind.

These polymer clay recipes for this Spring color palette will be sent out to everyone on my Polymer Clay Tutor Guest List starting next month (February, 2009). They will be referenced as:

  • Pansy (Recipe 009-1B)
  • Viola (Recipe 009-2B)
  • Lemon Zest (Recipe 009-3B)
  • Midnight (Recipe 009-4B)

Obviously this palette is an excellent choice for creating a pansy flower cane, since each color matches the colors in the photo of the pansy flower shown above.

“Pansy-009-1B” is the rich purple-blue of the two back petals. “Viola-009-2B”, the soft mauve of the three front petals. “Lemon Zest-009-3B” is the sun shiny yellow from the center of the flower. And “Midnight-009-4B” is the deep purplish blue in the slashes radiating out from the yellow center.

    Hi Cindy,

    I am fairly new to polymer clay. And I was making mistakes and didn’t know it. But when I found your courses , I was delighted to see how much fun it was to work with polymer clay when you handle it properly. And your videos revealed my mistakes and the right way to do things, So I am delighted to be a part of your teaching and I will keep adding more videos as I progress. I am pleased to say I have already sold 2 necklaces I learned how to make on the videos. I have been making jewelry for a little over 2 years , but making your own beads is so cool. So thanks for making mistakes and sharing so I don’t have to.

    Wow, this is a gorgeous palette! I love making flowers and flower canes; this just begs to be re-created into its inspiration (wait, did that make sense? I want to make flowers from the flower-inspired palette…?) Anyway, it’s beautiful, and I think it’s wonderful that you’ve made a Kato version available too.

    Although I’ve never tried Kato, I can see that its fans are very big fans, indeed. I think they’ll be very happy to see the recipe sent in by Sue Fisher! Since she’s also made some of the other palettes, Kato users might be getting some more re-creations some time in the future. Hurray for you guys!

    Cindy, (and Doug) thanks again for another gorgeous (beautifully photographed) palette, along with its inspiration!

    Thanks for adding the Kato Link. That is very helpful. As you can see I convert them into live links to make it easier for everyone to click over to the reference.

    By the way everyone, the Premo version of the Vol-009-B Pansy Flower Spring Color Palette recipes are currently be emailed out on Fridays to anyone subscribed to my Free Polymer Clay Newsletter.

    Hi Cindy: Yes, I’ve noticed that, lately. It looks cleaner, neater, too. It’s cool when it happens, like magic! I put the address in my comment (minus the “http” & “www” parts) and “Abracadabra!” The next time I check, it’s been turned into a pretty & useful live link! You’re very welcome, I love to help if I can. You’ve been a huge help to me with polymer clay, and by bringing this lovely community into my life.

    I vote for a pansy cane video, too, please.
