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 Faces with Maureen Carlson’s Molds

I wasn’t able to take Maureen Carlson’s class at Fandango. Everyone was making these fabulous necklaces with What a Character® mold from Maureen. I couldn’t resist and came home with a couple. I’m busy making more Girlfriends Galore bracelets because they are all gone, but I just had to play with the molds……… so what did I make but a bracelet of course.

I usually do my own faces, but I just wanted to play with these. Actually I wanted the little stamps embellishments all around the faces as much as anything. They are really just so cool.

This is a WIP but I just want to let you know I am at my clay table working  er …..playing……away. So if you see this Maureen, I’m not finished yet.

My class here in my studio is full and I’m looking forward to a great day. If you are interested in taking a class with me, leave a comment or email me at alice@polymerclayetc.com and let me know. I’m going to be having at least one class a month including my Full Face Cane class the last of July.  As I said, I only have room for 8 or 9 so be sure to let me know if you’re interested.

  • Spent Friday evening at Maureen’s, in the comjpany of a table full of these faces…All different, and all Maureen’s. Such an amazing talent with sculpting, especially sculpting students into masters of their own creativity. Love that woman, and love your tweak of the molds…hmmm, spice jars? belt buckles?

    Oh how fun. Maureen is such a talented person and such a lovely spirit, I envy you the time spent with her and all her characters. good trachers know how to i spire you to be your best and she is one of the best. Plus, you’re going to laugh and that’s just as important. You’re right, there is not limit to what you can do with these molds.

    I bought these molds and have been playing around with them. Never thought about making a bracelet so thanks for the idea. I have seen some artist (can’t think of the name at this time)who made some incredibly rings with the molds. Your cuffs are fantantic.

    Pat, I’m just such a bracelet person….everything ends up on a bracelet. Glad I could give you another idea, but I’m sure you’ve already come up with a bunch of neat ideas.
