27 videos, step by step, beginner cane workshop
What people are saying about this tutorial.
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.
Happy New Year Everyone! I can’t wait to get this new year started, I truly finished with 2013 and I’m looking forward to an inspiring 2014.
I finished this fantasy fish painting a couple of weeks ago but couldn’t post it because if was a gift for my oldest son Brad. Brad is a master diver and often spends time in an underwater world. It’s safe to show it now, he has it and hopefully it’s up on a wall somewhere.
This painting is 9″ x 20″. I’m working on two more large polymer clay paintings now. One is huge, 28″ x 40″ …I know, I’m a little bit crazy, but hey, what’s the worse that can happen? That’s one of the things I love about polymer clay, if you don’t like what you’ve done, just start over. The clay can be recycled and isn’t lost.
Someone asked me to show a photo of the work hanging on the wall. Here’s a shot of some of the painting hung. It’s a new wall, that is, we rearranged furniture and there I was with the beautiful long wall to decorate, so it’s still a “work in progress” but I’m enjoying having some of my polymer painting in my house and not just in the studio.
Have a great year!
Oh and by the way, I’m adding the fish picture again because Facebook only gives me the last photo as the image to post to my page. Use to be you had a choice…geezzzz.
While I was away from my studio for a few months, I practiced drawing faces using pen and ink. Here’s one I did using a Vogue cover from the 50’s. I’ve always loved this picture and it was a perfect one for me to try and recreate. I’m happy with it except the face doesn’t look like the model at all.
I don’t think I’ll ever be able to do a likeness, but that’s okay I’m happy just drawing imaginary faces. Practice, practice, practice…..it’a all fun!
I went to my annual Christmas party with my best FF’s last night. Each year we have a good gift/bad gift exchange, you know the deal when you all draw a number and the first person opens the first gift and then the next person can steal it or open a new one? Well we do that for both good gifts and bad.
Coming up with a bad gift is easy, sometimes it’s something just too silly or funny or a regift from past bad gifts. We’ve been doing this for over 15 years, so there is plenty of old bad gifts and trust me they do show up again.
Good gifts are well…good and sometimes a lot of stealing goes on.
This is my contribution this year. I enjoyed making it very much because it was going to end up in the home of one of my friends and because it got me back in the studio.
I’m looking forward to really rocking the clay after the 1st of the year.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all my friends both here in the States and all over the world. And a Happy New Year!
