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.

Alice In Wonderland

I was so happy that my “Alice in Wonderland”  tea set was featured on Polymer Clay Daily in the beginning of this month. But I was upset with myself that I haven’t finished it. I’d been working on it since before Christmas, but I bought my Studio and have been busy with all that brings with it.

Thanks to Cynthia Tinapple and PCD I’ve finished most of the characters. It will always be a work in progress I think. but here’s a look at it as it is now. I hope you enjoy it and get a smile or two.

You can see the tea set in person at Alice Stroppel’s Studio 215 in Sebring  FL .

Into the Garden

Into the Garden Alice Stroppel

My newest wall piece, Into the Garden, 21″ x 29″.  It’s funny, I had this almost finished month’s ago, before I bought my new Studio. I sat down with it again and decided to double the size. I worked on it feverishly for days, took pictures to share on Facebook and realized by looking at the photos that I had actually done two completely different pieces.

I shouldn’t share them with you, but hey, we all make mistakes right? I was lucky that I could save this one and I almost have the second one finished. So I still don’t have my larger one, but I will have two smaller ones instead. Both will be for sale at Studio 215.

Here’s the photo of the larger one almost finished. Can you see the two different styles? Just goes to show you that switching in the middle requires a bit of planning,

Double Wall flowers

The bottom part, the part I did months ago is very tight, with flowers touching flowers. the top part has more background, more loose flowers. You can almost see how much I wanted to get this one finished and up on the wall.

Lesson learned. I always take pictures and take a good look at my projects that way, sometimes we are just too close.

I’ve been posting to my new blog for Studio 215, head on over there and sign up for updates when I post and for my newsletter letting you know what’s going on at Studio 215.  I shared snydee holt’s visit and our encounters with alligators there the other day.

 I also have a new page on Facebook,  Alice Stroppel’s Studio 215  what else? I’d  love for you to like it and share it with your friends.

Here’s a list of all the workshops I have coming up at Studio 215. I’m having lots of workshops for beginners but I have will be adding more classes all the time. I sure hope you can join me some day.
