Sculpey III Clay Color Recipes: Lavender, Cherry, Peach and More

Sculpey III Colors by Carrie

1-Cherry, 2-Lavender, 3-Dusty Mauve, 4-Peach, 5-Mellow Green and 6-Aquamarine:

We have a Sculpey III Chef in the house. And her name is Carrie. A couple of weeks ago she provided 11 color recipes for everyone to enjoy. Today, there are another 6 to add to your collection.

Carrie has indicated she wants to continue providing her Sculpey III recipes on a semi-regular basis. So I’ll start an index of links to make it easy for everyone to find the previous recipe postings (see below).

A few other members of the community have also expressed a desire to share some of their recipes too. I’ll include them in the following index list, as received. In time we should all end up with a valuable resource worth bookmarking and sharing. Thanks to Carrie for getting the ball rolling on this.

Please note that Carrie provided the above recipes out of the kindness of her heart. I’m sure the more love you show her in the comments section below, the more motivated she will be to continue sending them in. Stories about how you are using the colors in your bead and jewelry projects are always nice to hear as well.

NOTE: If anyone else would like to share other recipes (any brand, even the lesser known ones), just let me know. I’d be happy to post them here at the blog so that you can get some recognition too.

    Thank you so much Carrie.
    Cindy, I just found my camera, I will be taking the pictures of the Faux Jade tonight, I want to try the roses again so I have something from your techniques to show as well.

  4. Elizabeth, 02 August, 2009

  5. Nancy Reddick, 02 August, 2009

    Thank you Carrie for the wonderful receipes…I love sculpy clay and this will a wonderful help

  6. Freda, 03 August, 2009

    I love those colors, but our craft stores don’t have the colors of clay listed. Maybe I’ll have to start ordering on-line.

  7. Laurel, 03 August, 2009

    These colors are scrumptios Carrie. Thank you so much for sharing them with us. I love ’em.

  8. aims, 04 August, 2009

    Carrie – you rock!

    Cindy – you are such an inspiration to all of us with this site and with what you do. Doing this (posting for others) out of the kindness of your heart – well – it’s nothing short of amazing.

    Thank you to you both. I’m drooling over the colours and trying to think of what I can do with them. I can hardly wait for more Carrie – and Cindy!

  9. Carrie, 04 August, 2009

    Thank you all for your comments. I am glad you all like my recipes and would love to see what you do with these colors! Cindy, thanks for posting these and haveing such a great site!!

  10. Dora, 06 August, 2009

    I’m a newbie. Do you use the skinner blend to get the final color right? I just didn’t know how to blend the parts together to get the end result. Thanks!

  11. Jamie, 07 August, 2009

    Oooooh Carrie! These colors are YUMMY! Thank you so much for sharing them. I am a die hard Sculpey III fan and colors like these are a big part of the reason. Please keep sharing more! XOXO Jamie

    P.S. Not to say that I dont like other clays or their colors. Because I love Cindy’s color recipes too! And I have several brands of clay in my stash.(I cant resist a good sale, LOL)I just find myself reaching for my Sculpey more times than any other brand I have. XOXO J.

  12. lynn watts, 08 August, 2009

    Thank-You Carrie and to the ones to follow with their color recipes. These colors as well as the ones you shared last time are just YUMMY! They would make good translucent colors for translucent layering, and ikat canes.When I learn how to send pics I will be able to share my work. Keep up the good work and thanks again for sharing so much of your talent with us all.

  13. Cindy Lietz, 09 August, 2009

    Thanks everyone for the great comments and love you have sent Carrie… I know she appreciates it!

    @Dora: You don’t need to do a full Skinner blend to mix colors. Just mush all the parts together and run through the pasta machine. Fold in half and run through the pasta machine (fold first), again and again until the colors are mixed. You can do it by hand instead if you want. Just squish and knead the colors together to mix. The pasta machine is faster though.

    If you are completely new to polymer clay, I suggest you get the Polymer Clay Bead Making for Beginners Course. There are 39 videos that will help you learn all the things you need to know about working with the clay, so you can avoid making a lot of common mistakes. Click the link by my name for more info.

  14. Carrie, 09 August, 2009

    Thanks everyone!
    @ Jamie- I am the same way, I always reach for my Sculpey III. Although now that I have Cindy’s color recipes I am using a lot more Premo.

    @ Cindy- You have called some beads “money beads”. I found my money bead this weekend. I sold at a festival and made $160 in 2 days! My smooth faux raku bracelets flew off my table! I made different shapes and sizes of beads and my best seller by far was bracelets with the faux raku technique on small ( a little smaller than a pea) round beads. I also made larger round, and two size cube beads and paired them with silver spacers.

    If anyone is interested in pics, let me know and I will send one to Cindy!

  15. Deborah, 09 August, 2009

    More gorgeous colors…must go see what is in my Sculpey III stash! Keep the fabulous colors coming!

  16. Freda, 09 August, 2009

    Carrie – I’d love to see pics. Wow! $160 at one show. Good going.

  17. Cindy Lietz, 19 August, 2009

    Yes congratulations Carrie on your sales! I would love to see the pictures of your money beads! That is very exciting! :-)

  18. cherie, 27 February, 2010

    Wow! I am new to the membership and currently going through the posts from start to finish.. I was extremely happy and grateful to find these Sculpey III recipes. Thank you so much Carrie. Have you given up coming up with more? Guess that sounds greedy, but that is not the way it was meant. Thank you once more-you are appreciated

  19. Phaedrakat, 27 February, 2010

    @cherie: As far as I know, Carrie sent Sculpey III recipes the two times only. Today’s post, featuring Sue Fisher’s Kato version of the Blue Hosta Palette, has an Index to all of the Guest Recipes. It’s at the end of the article, and has links to both sets of Carrie’s Sculpey III recipes (17 colors total) and the 3 Kato palettes Sue F. has converted (12 colors.) It’s so generous of these women to share their recipes/recipe conversions with us. Thanks so much, to both of you!

  20. Phaedrakat, 27 February, 2010

    @Cherie: I forgot to mention the main thing! I don’t think you’re being greedy — it just sounds like you appreciate the recipes! Nothing wrong with that~

  21. Natalie H, 18 February, 2011

    Can Super Sculpy (1.75lb) be used the same way the 2oz Sculpey III is used? I am thinking of. Using the white version in my blending. Of colors in my bead creations.

  22. Cindy Lietz, 22 February, 2011

    @Natalie H: I am fairly certain that the Super Sculpey in the big box is the same product as the White Sculpey III. Here is what I read on Polyform’s Facebook page:

    Mel Held: What’s the difference between the White Sculpey 1 lb sold at Walmart and the White Sculpey III clay sold at dickblick/Joanns/Michaels? Thanks in advance. January 21 at 4:32pm

    Polyform Products: They are the same product, different packaging.

    Hopefully that helps Natalie! ~ Cindy
