Premo Spring 2010 Color Recipe Ebook     FIMO Classic Fall 2011 Color Recipe Ebook    FIMO Classic Spring 2012 Color Recipe Ebook

Perhaps because I’m so eager for the end results, I often tend to do things backwards!  I’m lucky to have an innate feel for color, so when it comes to mixing colors in polymer clay I just grab several colors and start blending them together to get the shade I want.  This works very well as long as I don’t need to repeat the same shade exactly for another project.  This is where color recipe books are very handy. I discovered a website, Crafts by Chris, that offers just that!  There you will find color recipe Ebooks for Premo!, Fimo, and Kato polymer clays.  You can print 3” x 5” or standard business card sized card stock and keep them in a recipe box or card files so they are at hand whenever you need to look up a color.  Now, when I want a specific shade, I’ll just refer to the recipes.  I like anything that makes life easier!
