ONE TUTORIAL A DAY FOR 31 DAYS – DAY 7 OF MY JOURNEY – DON’T BE AFRAID OF CANES

I must say that when I started working with polymer clay, I considered that making canes is way too complicated. Luckily, I have managed to overpass this fear. Because you can do so much with a cane….

You can use cane slices to make cabochons, beads, embellish bracelets so a cane goes a long way.

DSC_0207Materials used: golden polymer clay, light blue polymer clay, dark blue polymer clay and cherry red (mixed with white), pasta machine, a blade and the clay extruder.

I have folded the polymer clay sheet and then rolled it into a log.

I have coated it with golden polymer clay.

Then I have repeated the process with the mixture of red cherry and white (a pink shade) and the dark blue.

I have made a hexagon-shaped log (using the clay extruder) and dark blue polymer clay and used it for the base of the cane.  I have put the three light blue – dark blue skinner blend logs over the hexagon log and then the pink – dark blue skinner blend logs on top and coated the resulting cane with a thin sheet of black polymer clay.

I coated the cane with a sheet of black polymer clay and then I reduced the cane (I rolled it from the middle to the margins to make it thinner).

And this is the result: (the reduced canes are on the left, the original cane is on the right)

I used thin slices of the cane to make a bracelet, a cabochon that I have put on a ring setting and beads for long dangle earrings.
