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.

On Going Polymer Clay Cane Mapping Experiment

Single fish - polymer clay cane mapping

I’m trying other ways to display the fish that I shared with you the other day. I still like the black background so I decided to see how a lone fish would look in a square frame. I can see a group of these on the wall. I like this as well as the larger grouping.

Still, nothing is permanent yet, plus I used very small glue dots to hold the pieces in place. They are used in scrapbooking and it only takes one or two to hold each item and I can easily remove the polymer piece if I want to. They will mess up your background though so keep that in mind.

This is a 9″ x 9″ frame and the fish is only about  3  1/2″ from lips to tail, so you could use several in a grouping.

  • Your fish is SO elegant! In my mind’s eye, I can see these clustered directly on a painted wall as a bas relief mural. It looks magical…

    Thanks, I love the way to metal foil adds that touch. It was one of those “ohhhh I really like this” moments.

    Directly to the wall…..that’s a good idea Kate, now to find that wall………..

    OK, besides the pen and ink, you’re going to HAVE to show me how you got all those gorgeous colors on that fish!!!! I love the richness of it – they look like jewels!!
