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.

One Polymer Clay Cane = Three Leaves and One Pod Thingy

Leaf Cane- four ways - Alice Stroppel

Leaf Cane- four ways

Yesterday I worked on colors, today I blended and cut and shaped polymer clay into one main cane. I cut the large cane in half and then cut that half into three pieces.

The first piece I shaped it into the first leaf and you can see how I shaped the other two pieces. I now have three different leaf shapes to use and all from the same cane.

Then I cut another piece from the original cane and cut and formed the bud/pod thingy. Not happy with the white part, but I’ll fix it later.

I love the way the colors make me feel. As I blend, I can feel myself getting excited about the way things are beginning to look. That’s what keeps me coming back for more, the excitement of what’s just around the crank of the pasta machine.

Now on to making more leaves and things to go with these so I can get excited about putting them all together to create something else. Sweet!!

    Thanks Stephanie I made beads last night with the pod . I’ll post them today.

  • Love the colors! I need to have a day where I just rebuild my cane stock. I love that feeling as they start to come together well too :)

    Kate, thank you for taking the time to stop by, I think that feeling is the reason I don’t make very big canes. I want to make new ones and stay excited.
    I can’t comment on many blogspot blogs. But now I have a new phone that allows me to comment, so I hope to be able to let all of you know that I do stop by many blogs during the week. I love seeing what everyone is up to.
