In a cane progress video I made recently (set to publish tomorrow on January 8)… there’s a snowflake sub-cane in the background. It’s cute. I’ve made variations of it over and over but I forget that I probably haven’t shown it to the universe much and that not everyone thinks in canes.
I meant to get this out earlier in the year but that just did not happen – 2021 was a pain – but it’s here! Before Christmas, even. Have a look at the video on YouTube: Make a Poinsettia Cane from Polymer Clay
This really IS, at it’s base, the leaf cane tutorial and the six petal flower cane tutorial. You make the fun leaf cane and then you assemble it like a regular six petal flower cane except some of the gaps get a second, tiny petal before adding background clay. I did this whole video with other colours – a different red, a translucent background – and it was poorly made so I redid it. The results are still wobbly but much clearer.
Hooray! I got the video for a shaded leaf cane – in good autumn colours – up on YouTube. Please take a peek! There are approximate written instructions in my old, old tutorial which will be updated by the end of the month.
I have a few more autumn themed videos coming right up.
