Color of Baltimore…

balt.jpgI’m almost packed and ready to attend the National Polymer Clay Guild Synergy conference in Baltimore Maryland…I am looking forward to seeing a lot of old friends and meeting new ones. Even though the signature dish of Baltimore= steamed Blue Crabs with McCormick Old Bay Seasoning is out of season (imported from Venezuela for the winter months) I am planing on  at least one colorful crabified Baltimore indulgence!


I look forward to seeing all the photos, posts and new inspirations generated by this conference in the upcoming weeks….Rock-on! Or polymerize JOY!

My favorite crab seasoning….


Fortunately available at our local Costco  in the indulgence size= 24 oz. Perfect for potato salad, fried chicken, crab cakes and Cole slaw (and steamed crabs).

    Old Bay Seasoning also makes some great faux stones mixed in with translucent clay. A great orangy yellow with flecks, surprisingly realistic looking pebbles. One of my favorites!

    We use Old Bay to season chicken gumbo and are forever-amused that Old Bay is KOSHER. 😉

    Looking forward to meeting you, too, Lindly!

    I’ve made lots of spice beads…however, never Old Bay beads. Thanks for the tip! There is a complexity of colors in the spice mixture that make it a good choice for mixing with translucent clay. and for cooking.

    The ingredients include: Celery salt, mustard, red pepper, black pepper, bay leaves, cloves, allspice,ginger, mace, cardamon, cinnamon and paprika.
