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 Slides

I have a slide exchange coming up and I have been experimenting with different designs. They have to be black and white with one color. The exchange is with a very talented group of polymer clay artists and I want to make something new and different. Different for me anyway.

This was the first idea that I had and I made a bracelet to go with it. I saw a pendent like this except instead of my dot-dot-dot cane there were real diamonds draped around. I like this one and got several compliments when I wore it.

Next  I made these three, once again using my dot, dot, dot, cane in each one. I like the one in the middle the best.

And then this “just a bit crazy” one that uses… what else but the dot, dot, dot, cane again. polymer clay slide

And the experiments continue.

    Nothing better then one of your dot to dot canes. Love all the designs you made but my favorite is the crazy one; as you call it. No matter what you decide on I know it will be impressive and will hold its own with the other polymer clay artists in the swap.

    Sara and I were talking the other day about making dot to dot canes using different colors and even reversing the white and black combo. Also, making stacks of the same color circles, example seven blue, seven yellow, seven green etc. and putting the extruder so the dot is mixed colors. Hope I explained that so you get my drift.

    I have been wearing the sun pendant you taught at Fandango and have received many compliments. I really like the buna cord because it is so light. Usually I don’t wear necklaces because I can’t stand them round my neck.

    Be in touch later….

    Thanks for your opinion Linda, I value it. I’ve made other colors of DDD and white with black, they all work well. I understand what you were saying and I hope you and Sara give all those ideas a try.

    I’m so happy you like the sun pendant and that you wear it. That’s important!

    Miss you guys, I’ll be emailing you both about a class here with “the crew”. Miss you guys.

    Thanks for taking the time to say hi.
