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.

A Pretty Picture?

Illustration -polymer clay

I started out yesterday to continue to list more items in my Etsy Shop, but ended up here instead. I had this idea…..I know, so what else is new? I’ve been wanting to make larger items to hang on the wall for quite some time. The clay part of this one is 8″x 10″

It was another one of my wild ideas that turned into The Most Fun. I find that when I let go of the goal of making something to sell, I enjoy myself so much it makes me laugh out loud and realize that I should Never, Ever, Worry about sales. There are many things that I would do differently, but I learned alot and had a ball.

But taking sales out of the equation is a hard thing to do since it’s what I’ve done all my life. And now is really no different, I have to sell things, it’s just the way it is.

I’ve always known that letting go is the best way to create, I just have to keep remembering it. This one was for me…..however, I was thinking about turning this into a greeting card…….(grinning here) ……….. what do ya’ think?

    Wow! What a creative rip you’ve been on. I visit your site every day and am always amazed. Love the rocker girls, the business card holders, the use of black and white and now this glorious picture. You are an inspiration and have amazing talent. Keep on keeping on…….

    Linda, hey there, good to hear from you. thank you for the encouraging words, It really helps. I really enjoy creating new things. I had fun with the hair on this girl. something a bit different than I’ve done in the past and I like it. I used the drier edges of the clay after I ran it through the pasta machine. I did the same with the flower in this bracelet in this post.

    Then I layered the different colors instead of making a cane for the hair. Today, I’m making the cards. Hope to see you at Fandango this year.
