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.

Sculpting Polymer Clay Foot for Workshop

I think I might “creep” some people out with this picture of the foot that I did for my sculpting workshop. But hey, we’re doing realistic sculpts in the workshop.

I’ve been racking my brain to figure out what I can make with just the foot without it really being creepy. Not sure I can. I’d like to incorporated it into a mixed media piece instread of just adding it to the collection of polymer clay hands that I made.

It’s not actually a collection, or at least didn’t start out that way. I made a giant mermaid and the first set of hands were  too big and then the second set was too small, and one set was just right.  (sounds like Goldilocks and the Three Bears). That set went on the mermaid and the other two sets are now “a collection”.

Oh and I forgot the hands I made for the almost life sized santa I have standing here waiting for me to dress him. Those hands are kind of part of the “collection”.

I know….I’m kind of strange, but I always, always, have fun.

    Your sculpting is fabulous ! I have seen the Santa and mermaid. Just amazing how real they look. I can’t wait to see what you will be doing with the foot. I loved the mixed media piece with the hand.

    Laquita, thanks! I can’t seem to come up with something for the foot like I did with the hand ..:) I’m working on it . When are you coming down?

  • Mary Kaye

    I think you should make something that complements the hand/mixed media thing you did earlier. I see you’re saying you can’t seem to come up with something – think on it a while, maybe it will come to you in a dream (I dream of clay all the time LOL)

    BTW, that’s a really realistic looking foot – I like the veining in it. Maybe something beachy …..

  • Alice

    Thanks, the veining is the fun part.
