I am taking an online class "Polymer Clay Cane Design Boot Camp" by artist Heather Powers. I just finished the first class where we made a flower cane. When I saw the cane, I considered not even trying to make it. I was convinced that I couldn't do it. The flower cane was made up of geometric patterns--triangles and circles and it looked very difficult. I am glad that I gave it a try. I ended up with a tube bead and half dozen round beads.

One thing I need to work on is reducing the size of my cane. My beads turned out a little large than I would have liked. Hopefully the next batch will yield more beads that are smaller. I would also like to make a lentil which looked too imposing to even try.
I am pretty happy with my results. What do you think of them?
You did a great job!!! Just jump in and try each project, don't be afraid - it's only clay. I love seeing how you are moving along with the class. Have fun!!!ReplyDelete
Heather-Thanks for the encouragement.Delete
I love reading a post about your progress! Your beads look great. I look forward to seeing more work.ReplyDelete
Ann-Thank you! I am very happy that they turned out the way they did on first attempt of that cane.Delete
Good for you trying something new! You've got to start somewhere... I think they look pretty darn good!ReplyDelete
I am pretty darn pleased!Delete
They're beautiful, so much detail!! Wonderful work!ReplyDelete
I have watched videos about making polymer clay beads and, frankly, think I can't do it. But your post was very encouraging and seeing the results, I just might decide to try it when the occasion presents itself :)ReplyDelete
You owe it to yourself to give it a try. If I can do it, I am pretty sure you can!ReplyDelete
