Polymer Clay Canes for Beginners

27 videos, step by step, beginner cane workshop beginner Cane Tutorial What people are saying about this tutorial. jennifer rose Just finished this first workshop on how to make canes, and I must say I learned so much. This is exactly what I have been looking for, someone who could explain cane making in a step by step that process that I could replicate. I watched the videos, went into my studio and began to create all of the canes Alice showed. I finally have results I can be proud of, and I say thank you so much for doing this workshop. My only question now is when do we get more workshops. If you are only going to take one online class let it be this workshop. Thank you Alice for your hard work, and your dedication to helping others learn the joys of polymer clay.

It was all about the Face, Friends and Fun

Florida Gulf Coast Polymer Clay GuildI was at the Florida Gulf Coast Polymer Clay Guild in Palmetto teaching my profile face cane and everyone did a really great job. I can’t wait to see what they make with these canes. They can use this short video to make hair canes and this video to attach everything to a bracelet blank after it’s baked.

But these funky faces aren’t just for bracelets, I’ve used them on all kinds of things.

I always have the best time at this guild, they’re fun and really enjoy the clay. And they always have the greatest pot luck! Thanks ladies and a special thank you to Sydney Carter for asking me and making the arrangements.

Everyone was delighted to the Premo clay for this project donated by Polyform. That you Iris Weiss.

Next week I’m teaching at the West Coast Polymer Clay Guild in New Port Richey, FL. It’s a great class to teach and I’m looking forward to seeing friends I made at Orlando Clay Fandango and making new ones. And making more great faces……..




Martini Anyone, Polymer Clay is Star of The Party

Margarita Mango

Okay, I’ve done it now, I’ve gone back to “big”. This is  a full size cocktail shaker. I love making things that you can see from across the room and you say to yourself (I hope) “Wow, what is that? I love that, it’s so cool” that’s my goal I guess …………cool………

The hair goes all the way around

The hair goes all the way around

Okay may the word is interesting, or different…oh….. I think I have that one covered. Her hair goes all the way around the shaker to almost meet on the other side.

She's almost catching up with herself

I spent a month picking, peeling, slicing and freezing from 30 to 100 mangos a day. Thank goodness they are all gone and won’t be back until next year. I’ll have mangos until next summer.

I made the best frozen margaritas and had them on my mind as I made my choices for this cocktail shaker. Lime green for the margarita part and a mango color for her hair. Here’s another something that I just might have to keep for myself, then again I have a friend that just might like this for her birthday. Besides, my kitchen is getting to look alot like my studio.
