I’m Inspired!

I have started to work through Polymer Clay Color Inspirations: Techniques and Jewelry Projects for Creating Successful Palettes, and am quickly becoming obsessed with what this wonderful book by Maggie Maggio and Lindly Haunani has to offer.

I decided to limit myself to Premo in order to limit my choices and because that’s the clay I usually use. I completed the package color testing exercise and made a value sorter.

This was getting interesting. Terms like tint, shade and value started to make more sense. I read about pivot tiles and made six of them.PT1PT2

I was so fascinated by the color shifts that I made six more pivot tiles with different colors.

Then I made clay plugs from the leftover colors this time, extruded them and made canes.   Since each cane started from the same pivot color, they all work on some level.  Now I am hooked.  To pivot beads and beyond!!!

I found a neato color test you might want to try.  Go to the Pratt and Lambert site and find out what color personality you have.
