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.

Another trio of girlfriends. I guess you could consider these girls either very fashion forward or graying gracefully.

One kind of looks like Cleopatra if you squint your eyes and hold your head just right.

On their way to my Etsy Shop.

I sold the three girlfriends pin and listed this one yesterday in my Etsy Shop. She’s looking to the future, her future home I think.

Making beads today and packing up my clay things to go the the Florida Gulfcoast Polymer Clay Guild meeting. I’m taking Sherry McKinney with me and looking forward to a day of fun.

Another pin listed in my Etsy Shop. I’ve been working on small pins, beads etc. I’m back to having that fun I’m always talking about.

On Saturday I’m going to visit the  Florida Gulfcoast Polymer Clay Group in Palmetto. It’s only about an hour or so away and I met Sydney Carter and some of the other women at Orlando Clay Fandango this year. They are introducing about 20 kids to polymer clay and I’m going over to see if I can help and enjoy this group.

I’ll let you know how it goes….taking my camera as always.

Polymer Clay Face Pin

Polymer clay facepin - Alice Stroppel

My friend Laquita Carter came to visit yesterday and we had another fun clay day.

I had an old small face pin sitting on the table and Laquita said she wished I had some of those for sale on my Etsy site. She wanted to buy that one, but I said, “why not make one”. So that’s what we did.

We both used the same face and came up with completely different characters. Mine is the one shown here and I know you will find this hard to believe, but yet another clay day went by and I didn’t take a picture of us, what we worked on or anything. As soon as Laquita left, I did the slap up side of my head move and almost ran down the road to get her back.

I’m going to email her and ask her to send a picture. The most important thing was that we had a great day and enjoyed and learned from each other.

She even brought me some of two really cool canes she made and some color recipes with chips. That was great, thanks Laquita

I have to put the pin back on this girl and then she’ll go in my Etsy shop. I think I’m gonna make some more.  This one is 1  1/2″X 1  1/2″. Little but really catches your eye.
