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.

Brass Channels and Stroppel Cane


I told you about my tin full of brass pieces in a post last week. Well in that tin were a bunch of brass channels. Naturally, I had some Stroppel Cane lying around so I thought I’d make something.

I filled the channels with the SC and then mounted them on a sheet of textured black clay and baked it. The pieces came off the black background easily, so I took them off and laid them back out in order, exactly as they were when baked.

I had to pop each SC out of the channel and glue it back in with super glue. Then I glued the channels back in place on the black background.

I haven’t finished the back yet. I think it would make an outstanding pin, but I have more pins than I will ever wear, and I like it. So I might frame it in a small frame. Yeah, I might do just that.
