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.

Lime Green Pendant with Stroppel Cane

I couldn’t let everyone else have all the fun with the Stroppel cane. Can you tell I love lime green? And I think the black and white check sets it off.

Listed in my Etsy shop. I made my own bail on this one.

Oh and just so you know, it is an absolutely gorgeous, spectacular day here in sunny FL. I think this afternoon I need to get outside for a bit. Sitting down by the lake sounds a bit like heaven. Now if I can just tear myself away from this creating mood I’m in……….

Lime Green Profile Face Cane Bracelet and Color Recipe

I’ve been working on several things today. This is just one of the bracelets I’ve finished and I’m working on a cocktail shaker. Too Funny! This girl has a flamboyant¬†hat as always and a checker board blouse that matches the lime green checker board bracelet I posted yesterday.

Over on Facebook, I had so many people talk about loving the lime green color that I thought I’d share the recipe with you. I know that I am not the first one to print this, but to tell you the truth, I have no idea where I discovered it. I do think pairing the two colors is something I did on my own years ago.

Lime Green Recipe

1 part Zinc Yellow

1/16 black

Yep, that’s it! That’s all there is to it, and the second color is Zinc Yellow straight out of the package. When placed next to the lime green it looks like a light lime green. Easy, breezy.

Go Green!

Another bracelet for sale in my Etsy Shop. I’m in the faces/girlfriend makin’ mood. I have a couple more already baked and ready for pictures. That’s the part that is a chore for me. I can do it, it’s not ¬†hard, it’s just that I’d rather be making something else. Like the rest of my leaf necklace.

Oh well, just have to do it. I still haven’t taken pictures of the individual face beads to put in the shop. I sold a couple to my neighbor from across the lake, thanks Karen…..and I think some others are going this week, so I might not have to post them on Etsy, we’ll see.

In the meantime, take a look at this girlfriend bracelet, it really could be the perfect gift for a special friend. Thanks so much for stopping by.
