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.

Creating a Collection of One of a Kind Polymer Clay Bracelets

Polymer Clay Bracelets

I’ve received such positive feed back about these bracelets that I decided that this was a great way to use this face cane. I have cut up and used all of the cane for these bracelets. I have prepared the faces on the bracelet so that they are all ready for hair, hats and blouses.

I’ve sold one locally, am keeping the first one, and the rest will be posted on Etsy and sent to the galleries that exhibit my work. I’ve done the basic work and now I can really use my imagination to make each one of these truly unique.

It’s the way I can produce many items that are the same while creating a one of a kind finished product. It’s kind of like an artist producing a limited addition of prints of an original work of art. Only these are all individual and unique. Each one took thought and manipulation of the eyes, lips and the addition of a neck. Moving forward, choices will be made for the other canes that will be added.

I will produce 13 bracelets and one pendant from this cane, so I would say that it is a collection with limited additions. Anyone purchasing one of these bracelets will know that this face will never be reproduced again. (I couldn’t if I wanted to) So it adds value to the purchase.

But wait, there could be more pieces coming from this cane yet……

Leftover eyes

Leftover eyes

As these were my best eyes to date, I just can’t throw these away, so they will continue to stare at me until I figure out what to do with them. I thought about putting them all on a bracelet, but that kind of creeped me out. Well, I’ll keep staring at these baby blues until I create something everyone will want to ogle.
