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.

The Same Polymer Clay Face Cane Experiment Continued

I just couldn’t throw her away and I didn’t have the inspiration to start a new face cane this last week.  So today I wanted to continue the canvas and polymer clay ideas that have been running around in my head. I decided that this cane was perfect for my explorations.

This One ?

I love altered art and have collected “things” for years. I do Birthday presents for my friends and cards now and then. I’ve been wanting to mix altered art with polymer clay for quite some time.

Or this one?

I’ve laid everything out on the canvas and I’m pretty happy with the placement of things, but I’m still trying to decide about flower. Flower in her hair? Soft  or bright? As an accent? More needed?

Flowers in her Hair?

I’m still toying with the idea of earrings. I like using old jewelry pieces too. The couple dancing is a scanned reproduction of a drawing my Dad did in the 40’s. I’m not sure just when, he didn’t date it, another reason I try to date everything I do.

Or just as an accent?

So that’s what I’m playing with today, and if nothing else comes from it, I am having a blast. Tell me what you think?

    Absolutely blown away by your mixed media art. I have scrolled back and forth several times between the four and am drawn to the first one because her eyes and the messages seem to stand out. My second choice would be the third one because she looks so hurt, sad ,…that her dreams didn’t come true. However, only you, the artist ,knows which one speaks to you. Keep sharing ………….

    Oh thanks Linda for spending some time with them all, I think a agree with you about the first one. The subtle color of the flowers doesn’t draw your eye away from the rest of the information on the canvas. Her face and neck have more color than needed anyway.

    Creating the blouse from clay was fun to do. I can’t wait to play some more with this concept. Thanks again, Linda.

    Been away from blogging and look what you’ve posted! I love her Alice! Her face is so expressive! I agree on the hurt look on her face in #3 – very eye catching. What fun indeed!

    Hey Aimee, I have been working away. Glad you like her.
