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.

New Girlfriend Bangle

I’ve just posted this new girlfriend bracelet in my Etsy Shop. She’s the third one I made and I can tell you the truth, I’m having a blast. Each bracelet uses a bunch of clay and canes, but it’s worth it in the end because these bracelet just make everyone smile.

On another note………

I want you know that I continue to be amazed at all the incredible polymer pieces that are being created by artists around the world using the Stroppel cane. ¬†From France to Romania the Stroppel cane has taken many shapes and been including in many designs. I’ve have been gathering each one as they come to my attention and “pinning” them to my Pinterest page.

If you make something using a Stroppel cane, please let me know and I’ll added it to my Pinterest board.

If you want to watch the video it’s just to the right at the top of this page.

  • Hi Alice, Thank you for sharing your Stroppel cane with us and allowing us all to have such great fun with our leftovers.
    I was not able to see the video before and had to go with the description.
    So I flattened a few of my left over canes (freshly made flower canes) and added a left over sheet of white instead of the black. I then folded it over and I liked the effect so much that I did not slice the resulting cane but turned it into a geometric cane instead.
    If you let me know how to post pictures to you, I will gladly send you the result.
    Thanks again for this wonderful idea!!!

  • Hi, Alice — I love your blog, and seeing your polymer projects! I signed up for your newsletter, but couldn’t get the mosaic fish cane video. I have updated my Quicktime player, but now the link to the fish mosaic video seems to have disappeared. Can you tell me how to find it? Thank you!

    Thanks Daniela, I really do have lots of left over canes as you can imagine. It’s why I HAD to invent the Stroppel cane.
