Polymer Clay Color Recipes | Peach Rose Palette [Premo Sculpey]

Peach Rose Color Palette by Polymer Clay Tutor

1B: Old Rose
Rose Bud
Peach Rose
Terra Rosa


Today I am pleased to share with you the first color palette inspired by a photograph taken by my 14 year old daughter, Willow. She is becoming quite the little shutterbug and at this stage, is leaning towards a career in photography.

She spends hours editing photos taken of her friends and family, and now, has been happily adding flora and fauna to the mix as well. It appears that Doug’s camera skills are rubbing off on her :-)

We can only hope that she will share many more of her lovely photos with us in the future. Leaving a few words of encouragement for her in the comments section below certainly wouldn’t hurt (hint, hint).

The Old Fashioned Peach Rose that Willow photographed above, was planted by the deck of her Grandmother’s home last October (yes the Fall of 2010 was unseasonably warm for us). I think it makes the most lovely Summer palette, don’t you?

The recipes for each of the following 4 colors will be released during the month of May 2011 in Volume-036 [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.


  • Old Rose (Recipe 036-1B)
  • Rose Bud (Recipe 036-2B)
  • Peach Rose (Recipe 036-3B)
  • Terra Rosa (Recipe 036-4B)



Old Rose is the soft Peachy Yellow of the outer petals of the Rose. Rose Bud is the Rosy Pink found in the inner petals alongside the Peach Rose petals that give the flower its name. And finally, Terra Rosa is the vibrant pink orange found deep within the bloom as the rose petals emerge and unfold from the center.

The recipes described above are from the Volume-036 B-Series Palette. They are free to download, for everyone subscribed to my Polymer Clay Guest List.

What a great learning experience for your daughter!!! Great life lessons for her to get now!! Imagine what a great business woman she will one day be!!! YAY Willow!! ~Kam-K

I read the article about Willow’s Missing Penguin, and ended up clicking the link to find her cute penguin portrait photo. So very adorable! I hope Willow finds him soon. How tragic… but flattering too?!? ~Kimberlee-J

    Move over Doug, your position as official photographer is in jeopardy! Beautiful picture Willow, and another very pretty palette Cindy. :)

    The rose reminds me of my grandma, who loves her garden and has always grown roses for as long as I can remember. They look and smell wonderful.

  2. fran, 18 April, 2011

    Willow – you are one very talented young lady. I hope to see more of your pictures in the future.

    And they say creative talent doesn’t run in families, Brava Willow on a stunning photograph.

  4. pollyanna, 18 April, 2011

    Willow, you did a fantastic job of getting the beauty and colors of the rose. Great job……
    Cindy , you of course, got the shades of said rose just right.
    Nice job you two.

  5. Linda K., 18 April, 2011

    Willow, I just love your peach rose, which it reminds me of a peony, one of my favorite flowers. You did a wonderful job on this photo…the entire rose is in perfect focus, with rich, vibrant colors, while the background is totally out of focus…a beautiful and successful use of depth of field. Lovely.

  6. Linda K., 18 April, 2011

    Cindy, the peach rose colors make a wonderful color palette, which you have captured so well, and that palette has really got my mind going. In the fall some of our maple leaves turn a stunning shade of deep pinky orange, and it’s my favorite of the autumn colors. I think you’ve captured it in the “terra rosa” color.

    I’m also thinking I might be able to use the peach rose palette as a springboard to make a palette for the lovely “peace rose,” which is soft yellow with tinges of pinks…my mother had a peace rosebush when I was a child and they always make me think of her.

    What a palette -a beauty ! I just love David Austin roses -so now I will try and emulate one. Thanks, good enough to eat ;D

  8. pattw35, 18 April, 2011

    Willow – photography is wonderful. You can pour your heart and soul in images. MY hubby is photographer – but he centers his interest in aviation photography. You have such great parents. Hope to see many more photos by you in the coming months…….Good luck and enjoy

  9. Lupe Meter, 18 April, 2011

    I love this palette! It is a beauty! That is awesome that Willow wants to be a photographer and she is starting at a good age. That is a great photograph! Much success, Willow!

  10. Cherie, 18 April, 2011

    Willow you have captured the beauty of that rose beautifully! What a talented young lady!! I love roses, my mother is always painting them and I had a peach rose bush when I lived in India. Photography is just wonderful and you can be so creative. We look forward to many more photos from you. My cousin is a professional photographer in India and my daughter spends hours taking photos and editing them and adding all kinds of effects. Much success to you !

  11. Trudy M, 18 April, 2011

    Willow, girlfriend!!!! Awesome pic, I want to stick my nose right in the midst of the flower; you caught the glory of all that is gorgeous and natural in our world. Great job. My niece will be starting Syracuse U as a photography major; I know how much love a girl can have for the field.

    Keep sharing beauty! It’s much appreciated.

  12. Jeanne C., 18 April, 2011

    Willow you did a fantastic job capturing the beauty of this rose. Roses are my favorite flower and I have several bushes in my backyard. You really have talent for photography. Keep up the great work. :)

    Cindy the colors are beautiful!!

  13. Rebecca Chisenhall, 18 April, 2011

    Willow, wonderful pic of a gorgeous rose. I had an old-rose floribunda (can’t recall the name) that is blooming now, covered in blooms, and a very similar color! My rose is very, very fragrant as well. I am going to dry some of the blooms for flower beads, but now thanks to you and mom, I have colors to also emulate my actual rose! Thanks so much!

  14. Phaedrakat, 19 April, 2011

    Wow, how exciting to see one of Willow’s photos featured here! Nice job, Willow…you’ve got some of daddy’s talents (and some of mom’s, too…I remember your penquin!) And Cindy…beautiful palette to go with the lovely rose your daughter photographed. Such a talented family — you all must be proud of one another! :D

  15. Elly Moore, 19 April, 2011

    Its so great to hear your adults doing something they really like to do. Keep up the great work Willow and maybe someday we will see your pictures in a national magazine. “hey your know”

  16. Elizabeth S., 19 April, 2011

    Willow, you have your father’s photography eye, that’s for sure. I love the way you captured this beautiful rose-wish I had the gift you have. What is so wonderful, too, is that you have the best teacher you could possibly have in your dad. The Lietz family is talented indeed. Cindy, can’t wait for the palette! I’m thinkin’ shaded rose cane for sure.

  17. Jocelyn, 19 April, 2011

    Peach is a color that suits most skin tones, and when light shines through it it warms all to your eye. We should use this color more, but, popularity dictates it’s cycles. My advice is to use translucent mixes, as the result is delightful.

    Great work, Willow. Glad to see you are right on the ball.

  18. DJ, 19 April, 2011

    When I first saw the photo and color palette, I kept looking at it again and again – my eye was drawn to this picture. Willow I love your photo and your mom’s colors compliment it beautifully. Photography is exciting…sooo many things you can explore with all the new technology out there. Thanks for sharing your photo with us, it’s just lovely!!

  19. Sue F, 20 April, 2011

    Nice photo, Willow! :)

  20. Brenda, 20 April, 2011

    Beautiful photo Willow. You have an eye of an photographer. Not everyone can capture the beauty of an object like that. Your rose is popping off the page. Makes me want to reach out and pick it ;)

  21. Laura R., 20 April, 2011

    Oh, love the color palette Willow! Good eye for color and you are awesome at photography already :) Wish I could say the same…can’t wait for these color recipes. Beautiful!

  22. Willow Lietz, 20 April, 2011

    Thank you so much guys for the comments regarding my photograph, i appreciate it :) i really enjoy taking and editing photos, so to know that someone likes them, is awesome :)

  23. Sharon B, 09 June, 2011

    As a subscriber to your weekly newsletter, I appreciate the free B-Series color recipes.

    I noticed that, with Series 036B, Premo’s new colors are slowly appearing! My local Michaels and ACMoore don’t carry them yet. (Boo hoo!) Oh well, I should use what I still have.

    Thanks for the complimentary recipes, Cindy!

  24. Claycass, 11 June, 2011

    Cindy – if I still have my original emails can’t I use them to link back to the complimentary colors recipes? I really want the Rose Palette.

  25. Cindy Lietz, 11 June, 2011

    @Claycass: Because of digital theft issues that have come up in the past, the B-recipe links in the email newsletters do expire after a couple of weeks. So currently the only way to collect the B-series color recipes, is to actually download them to your computer when my email newsletter arrives in your inbox each Friday.

    That being said, we’re working on setting up a secure archive section at the library, which will make it more convenient to access the recipe cards. However, this resource is not yet ready. If only there were enough hours in the day to get everything done as quick as we would like :-O

  26. Lynn Watts, 12 June, 2011
