Polymer Clay Color Recipes | Petunia Flower Blossom Spring Palette

Petunia Blossom Polymer Clay Colors


It’s the middle of winter here in Canada… perfect timing to plan out your Spring jewelry making projects. As you can see in today’s photo, I just put together a spring polymer clay color palette based on a petunia blossom from my last years garden. The color recipes for this palette will be added to the members library starting next month (Volume-009, February 2009). They will be listed as:

  • Petunia (Recipe 009-1A)
  • Blossom (Recipe 009-2A)
  • Pesto (Recipe 009-3A)
  • Blueberry (Recipe 009-4A)

Soft and pretty these spring colors are perfect for making into flower canes, rose beads and any other polymer clay project that needs a feminine touch.

“Petunia” is a warm soft pink with hints of yellow and fuchsia and is the dominant color of the photograph above. “Blossom” is a soft pale pink with hints of violet and is the representation of the blossom in the background. “Pesto” a velvety green, like the soft leaves of the petunia plant. And “Blueberry” (a bit of a stretch ;-) is the deep rich blue-purple behind the leaves in the photo.

    Thanks for the up in coming new spring palette…gorgeous colors as usual. One of these days, you will have to explain how you play around with color to come up with these beautiful colors. Do you just sit and look at colors and then play with each of the colors and add a little bit of this color and that color to come up with them? I guess I haven’t played with color enough. I am going to have to devote some time aside from playing with it just to play with color. Thanks for all you do.

    Thank you girls!

    Lupe, I have gotten so I can look at a color and know which colors it is made of. Then I have to play around with the amounts of each color until I have a recipe that matches. Try it yourself some time. Just use teeny tiny amounts so you don’t use up all your clay, and see if you can get an exact match.

    Mixing up the recipes I make for you will also help. You will start getting a feel for the base colors and amounts that go into it.
