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.

Apple Man Still a WIP

Surprise, a second post in one day. I just wanted to share what I’ve done today at my clay table.

I’m still working on appleman and the concept. It’s a sweet little cabinet ( Doreen, I just need to figure out how to add a shelf or drawer) or box with a quick surprise inside and room to hold a special treasure or two.

I’ve added canes to the inside with my mosaic technique (modified) and baked him one more time. One of the things I want to work out is fewer baking sessions.

This one will end up on my shelf and I’ll enjoy him for a very long time. I have ideas for more in my head and am looking forward to translating them into clay.

Polymer Clay Apple Man Transformed

I worked on my apple man yesterday, cutting him apart and adding a hinge, a clasp and some little ball feet. Today I’ll finish the inside.

I need more experience with hinges and making a really good fit, but I’m excited about the possibilities. He’s just such a fun little box. Or do you call it a box if it opens from top to bottom? Would it be called a cabnet instead?

Pictures of the inside tomorrow I hope.
