Sculpey Souffle – Raw Versus Baked Color Shifts

Sculpey Souffle Raw Vs Baked Color Shifts - Polymer Clay TutorVideo #696: Out of the 22 current Souffle colors, only 6 of them show just a slight shift in color after baking. That’s pretty darn good!

In this video I will go through all of the Sculpey Souffle Polymer Clay Colors, and show you show the differences between raw versus baked samples.

Sculpey Souffle is a very opaque, matte polymer clay with a suede-like finish that has very little change in color when baked.

Recently I showed you sample chips of all the Premo Sculpey color line, and the differences in color between the raw samples and the baked ones. In this video I do the same thing, only this time using the the Sculpey Souffle line.

As I go through the entire Souffle line, you will see that out of the 22 current colors, only 6 colors show any perceivable differences at all… 5 becoming slightly darker (Igloo, Sea Glass, Lagoon, Royalty and So 80’s) and 1 becoming slightly Greener (Robin’s Egg).

All in all, the few color shifts that did happen, were so minor that they are hardly worth worrying about.

One of the nice things about this brand of polymer clay, is that what you see in the package, is what you get when its baked. The really is a WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) clay!

    Thank you for the informative video as always Cindy! I’m really interested in trying Soufflé clay but unfortunately there aren’t any stores near where I live that sell Soufflé yet, and the weather’s still a bit warm for me to order any. It is nice to know for future reference that there isn’t really any drastic colour changes though.
    I’m curious how you find Soufflé’s colour mixing? I’ve read a couple of reviews that say that the colours don’t necessarily stay ‘true’ when you mix them.

    Anyway, thanks again and I’m looking forward to all of the new things you and Doug have in store for us. Cheers!

    Thanks Klelin! I haven’t actually done much color mixing with the Souffle clay yet, but it is something on my list of future videos. I do suspect, since they are ‘designer’ colors, that there could end up being issues with muddy color mixes. Designer colors tend to be more complex and if you have watched my Muddy Color video you will understand why these colors could be an issue. It will be interesting to test though…

    Hi Cindy,
    I am making a cane with Souffle clay but ran out of the white. Can I use Premo white to finish the cane? I worry that because Souffle is softer than Premo, the cane may distort when reduced. I’ve had this happen when I had some black Premo that was softer than the other colors. What I didn’t do with that cane, though, was let the can rest or put it in the fridge before I reduced it. What would you recommend I do??

  6. Cindy Lietz, 09 January, 2016

    Hi Susan, I am afraid that replacing the Souffle with Premo is not really going to work in a cane. The color, softness and texture will not be the same and it will be very noticeable in the end result. It is always best to start with clay that is all the same brand and consistency, otherwise you will run into issues like you mentioned. Also, since you mentioned it, I thought I would point out that although it is a good practice to put canes in the fridge before slicing, it is not the best to put them in fridge before reducing. A cane should be all the same temperature, all the way through… preferably warm actually. If you start with a cane that is cold, the outside will warm up way before the inside and it won’t reduce evenly. Hopefully that makes sense. Good luck!

    Thanks Cindy. I sorta figured it would not be a good idea.
