These are cool looking beads, aren't they. I just covered the black beads with the cane. Oh, yes, I made cane. LOL Very complex cane I must say. It is my left over sushi rice cane, just trans. with white. Imagine the possibility of covering gold, copper and every color clay with it. Yum, can't wait to try.
TIPS: I used translucent clay made into 1" dia. log and about 3" long. I covered it with white sheet, reduced to a long, long log then cut into pieces and put them together into a big log, the reduced it down. I made base beads with different color clay, and cut a thin slide of cane and covered the beads, baked and plunged them into ice cold water.
