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.

It was all about the Face, Friends and Fun

Florida Gulf Coast Polymer Clay GuildI was at the Florida Gulf Coast Polymer Clay Guild in Palmetto teaching my profile face cane and everyone did a really great job. I can’t wait to see what they make with these canes. They can use this short video to make hair canes and this video to attach everything to a bracelet blank after it’s baked.

But these funky faces aren’t just for bracelets, I’ve used them on all kinds of things.

I always have the best time at this guild, they’re fun and really enjoy the clay. And they always have the greatest pot luck! Thanks ladies and a special thank you to Sydney Carter for asking me and making the arrangements.

Everyone was delighted to the Premo clay for this project donated by Polyform. That you Iris Weiss.

Here’s the other side of the canister made with two different profiles. You can see the other side here. The hair from both flow around half the canister. It ¬†was fun to do and I think it will go next to my coffee canister and hold …let’s see…..flour? NOT sugar…oh no…pasta maybe.

Today I’ve been working on a canister using my profile faces. I made several canisters years ago and still have one left that I use for coffee and I enjoy it everyday. I’ve had two canisters just waiting for me to get to them. I thought now was the time.

This is side one and there is another face on the other side. I’m only about a third of the way through, but thought I would share this much. I’ve used one of Barbara McQuire’s stamps to impress the background.

More colors to choose and a rim to add. Tomorrow………….
