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.

First, I’d like to thank each and everyone of you for taking the time to join in my birthday giveaway and for all the wonderful things you had to say. You certainly made my birthday special. As I said before, I wish I could send you all a prize just for being so nice, but there is only one girlfriend to give away today.

After using the random number generator this morning to select # 18, Susan Turney is the winner of my Birthday Prize. I’m so happy to be able to send this girlfriend to a girlfriend made through our love of polymer clay.

Susan is not only a pc artist willing to push theĀ boundaries as shown in her piece below, but she is also an accomplished quilter. You can tell she is a lover of color, a kindred soul.

Altered composition book SHERRY GOODLOEI am so thrilled to tell you I won another fabulous piece of art from another fabulous artist. I won this Altered composition book from Sherry Goodloe. Don’t you just love it? She has been trying to tell me for a couple of days, but I just didn’t get it.

You also might want to take a look at what Sherry’s done with Zentangles. I thought these were so clever, and you know me with faces and crazy girls.

Thanks so much Sherry and I’m sending you my address right now.
