Red Hearts Beat as One

Here is a red-hot treasury for you.  In need of Valentine’s gifts?  Look no further.

Thanks to the curator for choosing to include my Blood Red Heart necklace.  It’s since sold, but why not skip over to Gearbunny and see my other creepy Valentine’s Day goodies?

Making a Large Polymer Clay Face Cane

Generally I approach polymer clay from a sculpting perspective.  A lot of what I make is three dimensional.  But another long tradition in polymer clay is making millefiore canes.  This technique is drawn from Italian glassblowing, where rods of glass are fused together so that cutting across the tube reveals a two dimensional picture.  The same can be done with clay.  I’d made simple canes in the past like spirals, bullseyes, and stripes.  Even though I’d admired complicated canes in magazines, I had shied away from more complex cane-making for way too long for fear that it would be too difficult.  Last night I changed all that by tackling my first real cane.

Before you start, make sure you have:

  • A large clean work area
  • All your tools laid out
  • A reference photo to work from and refer back to
  • Plenty of clay.  If you run out of a color in the middle of the night when the stores and closed and it’s too late to buy more, you’re gonna be screaming at yourself!  (I found this out the hard way)
  •  About two days, and patience :)

My subject?  Boston Terrier, of course!  I started with the eyes.
