I thought I would try building a very simple cane of polymer clay to make some funky flowers, because I had thought of having gold trim around the white of the flower and how would I accomplish that best... I thought a cane would do it.
Here's how the process went:
|Putting together the layers of polymer clay. Wasn't|
quite sure how to put in the curves of the hills, but
found if I overlapped the fimo clay and then cut
it, it put together a nice flow and then smoothed the
layers together with my fingers.
|The background is complete! It is about 10x10cm|
|My attempt at my first polymer clay can ever. It started|
to come together quite well. I went with a black
middle, white around it, then some red and white then
surrounded by more white and then gold.
|The finished polymer clay cane. Looks like a big|
shiny cigar. I stuck it in the freezer for about 10 minutes
so it was easier to cut and would stop the clays from
bleeding together when I cut it.
|The finished product... pretty flowers|
