Tips & Techniques Color Mixing

Mixing Chart


Bar Design

Kato Polyclay bars are specially designed to facilitate color mixing. Because they are scored into 8 visible sections, Kato Polyclay bars can be easily cut into segments; this makes it easy to mix the correct amount of each color to create your desired mixture.

When creating your own color recipes, cure a small sample that is big enough to write on. When cured, record the parts per color in your mixture, so you can reproduce the same color again.


The Kato Polyclay Mixing Chart makes creating the perfect color easy. The parts-per-color are represented by the two or three part ratio shown on each color square.
