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.

StudioMojo – Cynthia Tinapple

StudioMojo-video - Alice StroppelI know, you tried to click on the video above and watch it right now, but it’s just a screen shot of the video featured on Cynthia Tinapple’s new premium weekly newsletter StudioMojo.

Once again I was surprised when I checked my email on Saturday and saw that this weeks copy of StudioMojo was titled The Stroppel Phenomenon! The cane certainly has been a phenomenon that is hard to explain. I’m overjoyed that this simple idea has made so many people so happy and given new life to many a sad cane and all those slices that have been hidden away from the world……..

Needless to say, I’m thrilled to be featured this week in StudioMojo, but I wanted to let you know about this newsletter with it’s interesting close up look at the polymer clay world from artists to the latest products.

Last month I became a subscriber to StudioMojo and have truly enjoyed it. The artist’s interviews include some of my favorite people and there’s more to come each week. The newsletter centers around “sparking your creativity.”  It certainly has done that for me.

Thank you Cynthia Tinnapple, one more time, for featuring me.

Storybox #15

I have another blog that is just for my pleasure and the entertainment of whoever wants to stop by. It’s called The Figurative Artbeat. It’s loaded with figurative artists in every medium.

I don’t usually post here every time I add another artist there. I do however let my polymer clay friends that visit me here know when I’ve posted about a polymer clay artist on The Figurative Artbeat.

I’m pleased to tell you that I’m featuring Maureen Carlson on The Figurative Artbeat. She has new work on her site and Storybox #15 (above) is probably my favorite.

After Maureen read her feature, she said it was funny that I should mention her book Family and Friends as it was about to go out of print. If you don’t have this book and would like really easy to follow instructions for making pc figures, you should make sure you pick up this book before it’s gone.
