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.

Fun Swaps at Fandango Polymer Clay Retreat!

Flamingo Mask - Alice Stroppel

This is one of the masks that I made for the mini mask pin swap at this year’s Orlando Clay Fandango in Florida. The Orlando Area Polymer Clay Guild had lots of fun things planned for us to share with each other plus several competitions. I ran out of time and only participated in the mini mask swap and the brown bag swap.

Mini masks

I received these three fabulous mini mask in exchange for three of mine. I saved all the names, but somehow lost the name of the woman who made the mask on the bottom. If anyone from Fandango know who made this mask, I’d love to list her name, so let me know.

Update…. Mystery solved, Katy commented on this post to let me know it was her mask. Whew, I’m glad that’s taken care of. I didn’t like losing her name. Thanks Katy.

I was lucky to win two beautiful items from Pat Ghadbane. Isn’t this bracelet lovely? I love the beads on the end and the button closure. I’d say I was lucky all the way around and came home with some fabulous artwork from some talented women.

Two more reason to attend next years Orlando Clay Fandango! So start saving kids.

  • Hi Alice! I wanna go back to Lake Yale… I miss everybody! I made the mystery mask, I wondered where she and her heart balloons had blown away to!

    Yea Katy, I’m so glad you let me know. I had the bag it was in and on it was your name. Some how, somewhere, it jumped out of it’s bag and into another one. I was very un-happy. But now all is right with the the masks. I love it and now I can list your name. (I wish I was back at Yale too) A great time. Thanks Katy and I love, love, love your Labyrinth that you show on your blog. Wow.
