This week I have been inspired to make some polymer clay kaleidoscope canes by Teresa Pandora Salgado’s class on the Virtual Retreat.
I’m surprised I don’t make more canes since this is what originally got me hooked on polymer clay. I’m pleased with how these came out – I think the patterns look like designs from antique biscuit tins.
Unfortunately as I was a bit impatient with mixing colours and blends I didn’t end up with as much cane as I’d like, so I don’t know if I will get to try scayning (sculpting + caning) with these. I’m planning to use these in toggles for my 2015 Polymer Clay Challenge so I want to focus on the engineering of that without the added dimension of petals.
I can picture some fantastic focal pendants though… [Insert more TIME here!]

I don’t think I’ll ever get bored with kaleidoscope canes, Cate 🙂 Something about the wonderment of putting those bits together and receiving a wonderful surprise each time 🙂 Love the pretty colours you have chosen 🙂
I know what you mean. I think I’ll be making more.
Oh, I agree! I also think they look likte old biscuit tins! Especially the combination in the middle looks soooo perfect for earrings! 🙂
