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.

Almost Like Paperdolls – Polymer Clay Doll

I know I said I wasn’t going to post today, but I wanted to say Happy 4th of July to everyone here in America. It’s a grand day for our country so celebrate and enjoy.

Plus…….I finished this girl last night and wanted to share.

A polymer doll

When I was little my sister had a set of paperdolls that she drew herself. She created a girl and a guy and the girl had the most wonderful clothes. I loved the way they looked and wanted so badly to be able to draw just like my big sister. The paperdolls aren’t around anymore, I wish they were I’d love to look at them again.

When I made this girl I was reminded of my wish to be able to draw my own paperdolls, somehow I feel like that little girl wish from years ago kind of came true. The difference is her clothes are made from polymer clay and can’t be removed. Still having fun here and fulfilling dreams.

    Oh thank you Nena, polymer clay does allow me to experiment and create things I only dreamed about. So glad you stopped long enough to leave a message. Went to your site, enjoyed it even if I could read it all. :)

    I grew up with paper dolls too and thank you for the trip down memory lane. How tall is the beautiful girl you made? Are you making a necklace, framing her or something else? Love the colors and 3-D fabric effect with different clay canes.

    I love your work. Your faces are so wonderful.

    I loved paperdolls Sydney, I’m just sorry it took so long for me to know I could make my own and like them.

    This girl is 8″ tall and I’m going to frame her. I love necklaces, but I also want to look at things more often than just when I wear it.

    You added canes to you finished figure that you make in class and it was hard to tell the difference between the marker and the canes. love it.

  • Alice

    Erlinda, thank you so much for taking the time to say hello and for your wonderful compliment.

    Happy Independence Day to you also, Alice.
    I admire your work. Looks complicated.
    The colors are so “soothing”… :)

    Speaking of combining pen & canes, is her hair pen & ink or a cane? Difficult to tell from the photo and she will make a lovely framed piece.

  • Alice

    LOIS!!! Hey there. So happy to see you here. Thanks so much for stopping by and the nice words…..

  • Alice

    Her face and hair are pen and marker, Sydney.
