Clarke’s summer colors

Cantelope, mint and grass with a bit of sky blue…these summer-colored polymer clay buttons by Lisa Clarke match the July day.

Lisa’s afternoon experiment demonstrates the value of accurate color mixing. She tried using premixed colors and couldn’t tolerate the off-key results.

You’ve got to have cool hands and patience to reduce canes in an 80 degree house. The results are pure summer.
