Yellowcake – Valerie Mayhen’s Sweet Designs

March 16th, 2012 · 3 Comments · Brands, Contemporary

Valerie Mayen is a champion of the underdog. She named her clothing line Yellowcake because “yellow cake, the actual dessert, is underrated. It’s the classic combination of rich chocolate frosting with sweet yellow cake. it’s the epitome of classic, and the champion of sweets. Sometimes overlooked, but never disappointing”!

That’s her idea behind Yellowcake. Sweet design with classic style. Eye candy with design substance.

Her designs are heavily influenced by the marriage of mod vintage looks with contemporary cutting edge style.

Valerie’s wants to consistently produce beautiful, high quality work while maintaining Cleveland-based manufacturing, utilizing local sewers, undertaking student apprentices to pass skills on and helping others with a portion of the profits of her work. Since inception, Yellowcake has always committed to donate 5% of the business profits to charity.

Hailing from Corpos Christie with Guatamalian roots her studies took her from Philadelphia to Abeline to Rome and them Cleveland with stints in LA. Valerie epitomizes her line in this detailed coat.

    Hi Anita,I am happy to help with your questions as best I can.Although I haven’t tesetd the PYMII specifically on Kato Clay I do believe it works the same on Kato as it does on Premo, which I use most often. As far as a polymer clay compatible spray finish, I have not found any product better than the PYMII. It is perfect for sealing in powder finishes, such as mica powders and chalks and has a very matte finish. In fact it is so matte that I am hoping Douglas will be able to formulate a gloss version for those who like things shiny.I use the spray for other jewelry making and crafting projects as well. It is great for spraying metals that you don’t want to discolor, patina or rust, as well as papers, fabrics or anything else you want to protect. It is easy to work with, quick drying, a UV protectant and acid free. (The way I’m talking about it, you would think I was part of the company and I’m not.)Anyway, although it is a bit pricey, you’ll find it lasts forever and is excellent value. I think you would be pleased to use it on your polymer clay work.If you have any other questions about this or anything else polymer clay related, there are hundreds of articles you can search through here at my blog, and a large community you can communicate and share ideas with. Feel free to ask anything you want, and myself or one of the members will try and help you out.~Cindy
