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.

Arty Becca’s Hollow Forms

Rebecca Watkins Hollow Forms

Here’s a necklace I made right after seeing Arty Becca’s (Rebecca Watkins) hollow forms. I needed to make one more of the smaller beads to finish it off and I finally did that last night. I use black rubber O rings in between the beads and extruded black clay bits as spacers.

Extruded black clay bits you ask?  I use an adapter made by Makins for their extruder. They come in all different sizes and you can use several different dies with them. I used a square die to make a long piece, bake it and then slice off what I need. Cool.extruder-adapters
