Making Canes














































I am often asked how polymer canes are made. There are many useful sites on internet with very detailed instructions. You can find many instructions, tips and tricks at Polymer Clay Central. Some time ago I made some instructions for my friends as well. It's not in English, but pictures might be helpful - flower cane, my mokume gane pot (which was partly presented here few posts back) and natasha bead.

Here are the latest canes I made - I made few pics while making each one to show how they were put together. There is also a shot of few pendants I made of scrap clay. We have terribly hot weather these days and it's not really appropriate time to work with clay... clay is too sticky, although I have it in fridge, and patterns can very easily deform. Not to mention that it is almost impossible to make nice cuts of canes for making beads. I guess I will have to find something else to do now... maybe posting here more often!
