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.

Paper Clay Character Rediscovered

I was at a very good friend’s house the other day and saw a piece I made about 6 or 7 years ago. I asked if I could take pictures of him because I think I want to play around with Paper clay and polymer together. I’ve been asked if I ever tried to combine other mediums with polymer and the answer was yes, but not with a great deal of success. I’d tried paper mache  with a polymer layer on top.

Then again, I didn’t continue to try, I just put aside. I enjoyed working with the Paper Clay and think maybe I’ll try it and polymer clay canes together. I know, I’m just not satisfied ever, I always have to ‘sperment.

It’s super bowl sunday. New Orleans is playing, this guy looks like he belongs at Mardi Gras. He already has beads.

    I’ve never heard of paper clay Alice. I’ll have to do some research and see what you are talking about.

    I love your guy. He is perfect for Mardi Gras!!

    Thank Aimee. He’s kind of strange but, so am I…..I like Mardi Gras and the masks and the costumes.

  • Yes! Do more of these little fellas. I’d love to see a demo of how you use the paper clay…

    I’ll work on that one, I love to sculpt and I need to do more of it. Just for me. This guy has to go back home soon. Thanks Kate!
