Vid #34: Polymer Clay Canes Are Often Referred To As Millefiori:
Good tutorials should always start with just a bit of a history lesson. For instance, did you know that polymer clay canes are often referred to as millefiori canes? Millefiori is a design word originating from the Italian glass making industry. Translated into English, it means “thousand flowers” (1000 flowers).
The Millefiori technique has now been widely adopted by polymer clay artists throughout the world. It’s used to make beautiful cane designs and intricate cane patterns.
