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.

Polymer Clay Face Cane Necklace – Or?????

Necklace - Polymer Clay face Cane - Alice StroppelAnother day of experimenting. Mica powers and Barbara McGuire Stamps, found jewelry and a piece of the face cane. Can’t decide if I want to make it a necklace or a large lapel pin. It measures 4 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ so it’s large.

This is one of those that, like Kate from Shibori Girl Blog felt about her latest cuff bracelet, this one is going to have to stay with me.

Somehow it baked too long and turned brown, so I had to add the leaves to the hat and bake again. The face is still to dark, but I’ll wear it or just hang it on my wall. I loved making it because it was so different.

I did add one of the bracelets to my Etsy shop in case anyone thinks they just can’t live without it.

I’m still having fun in the studio after all this time.

  • Hey Alice, thanks for the shout-out there. I like this pin. Why don’t you make it one of those pins that can convert to a pendant, giving the wearer a choice?

    And my own recent experience proves that regardless of what YOU perceive is a flaw, a potential customer won’t see it.

    I think your new face canes are super fun.

    That’s an idea, not to just do it. Thanks Kate.

    Kate said what I was going to say.

    Nobody but you knows that the face was a different colour to start with. I wouldn’t have known any different if I saw it without you telling me. I think the colour is really unique and gives it a very interesting look.

    After you mentioned it I went back for a good look and thought – I like it! It’s drawing my eye into the face and making me think of a life for this face – where did she come from? What did she do?

    So you see………?

    I guess you and Kate are right aims, but because I was working with the rest of the cane too, I could tell the difference. Thanks for the encouragement.
