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.

Girlfriends For Life – Cuff Bracelet

Girlfriends 2

Girlfriends 2

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.

Use the Ends of Polymer Clay Canes

Purple Pin - alice Stroppel

When I was cleaning up the other day, I came across this pin I made at the same time I made the bracelet in my post titled, Polymer Clay – Talk About Using It All!! It was in my “to be baked pile”. So today while I was baking a couple of other things, I finished it up.  It’s sort of outer spacey looking.

It’s an easy quick way to use something that might have gone into the scrap pile and turn it into something fun to wear instead.

I’ve saved a few more of the end pieces from canes for other projects not thought of yet. That’s what is no longer on my clay table, and I’m looking forward to another interesting afternoon with faces and other bits of clay.

Funky Woman Pin

I made this crazy woman pin with slices of one of my face canes and pieces of my Skinner Blend canes and scrap canes. See the Video in the last post to see how I use even the scraps of my skinner blends to make canes.

I made two sets of canes for the video. I only used one set in the video, but I’m showing both here. I used some of each group to complete my lady pin.
