If you love mosaics, color and polymer clay, if you love the look of complex canes but simply don’t want to create a giant complex cane, if you love one of a kind pieces, and if you have tons of left over canes, this is the class for you!
This is the workshop I teach at my Sebring Studio and around the country at polymer clay guilds and retreats. The difference is you can rewind and watch each step over and over if you want.
In almost 2 hours of videos you’ll learn the basics by mapping a fish portrait and a butterfly. I’ll show you a few unexpected canes and different slices that you can incorporate into your designs.
This is an intermediate class and having some Skinner blended canes in your stash will make your designs pop.
I don't make much of anything with out using Skinner blends. Plus, I outline everything in the very thinnest black, it's just what I do.The main thing is that you have good separation between the colors and I use black outlines to accomplish that.
I use several older canes but make many new canes as needed for each piece. So be sure to get out your older canes and pre-made Skinner blend sheets and plugs because you'll need them.
If you are new to caning you might want to take my beginners cane workshop first. Or check out my extrusion workshop.
Thank you so much for joining me for this cane mapping workshop. I hope you enjoyed it and make many wonderful pieces.
