As many of you know, I am not much of the cane maker. I'm just afraid; don't want to make mistake, don't want to waste clay, don't want to do the same thing over and over, can't sit still long enough to make a cane. But I am not afraid to try new thing. After helping CAT with her class, I had learn few things, as a matter of fact, a lot of things. So I just give it a try.
Last Friday, we had a side walk sale, so Joan had me set up the table outside her boutique. I brought some Polymer clay with me and I started making Skinner blend, then someone wanted to know how I put the line inside my cane and I had to show her the magic trick. Next thing I know, I had all these leaves and petal canes and, hum, what will I do with them.
So, as you can see, I slide each petal cane up and make flowers. Different shape, different size, they'd kept me entertained for a couple of days now. This is fun.
I opt not to make a whole flower cane and did not burnish it down. I am not intend to make a perfect cane either. Another way to play with Polymer clay.
The pendant on the right is another idea, part sculpting, part painting. I also use the Rhinestone and the Monarch Butterfly from Scott.
FUN FACTS & TIPS: The Capital of Thailand is BANGKOK, but Thai people call their city "KRUNG-TEP", means "City of Angle". It is short for "Krung Thep Mahanakhon Amon Rattanakosin Mahinthara Ayuthaya Mahadilok Phop Noppharat Ratchathani Burirom Udomratchaniwet Mahasathan Amon Piman Awatan Sathit Sakkathattiya Witsanukam Prasit". And I am not kidding.
