Vid #93: A Polymer Clay Cane Anyone Can Make… Even If You Have Never Made Any Canes Before:
Many of you have been asking me to do some step by step videos on how to make polymer clay canes. So the first in a series of many more to come, is going to be something simple… yet still very cool looking. The Extruder Mod Cane.
By choosing any color combination you like, and using the Makins Professional Clay Extruder, you can make a great looking polymer clay cane the very first time… even if you have never tried making polymer clay canes in your life!
The colors I chose for the Extruder Mod Cane in the picture above, are from the Petunia Flower Blossom Spring Palette. The recipes for those spring colors are being posted in the Membership Library this month (Volume-009 A-Series). But any color combination will do. Even something as simple as just using black and white.
If you want to learn how to make the Extruder Mod Cane, the full tutorial video will be available in the members library later this week (See Video 009-1). But you can watch a preview clip right now if you like, by scrolling down on this page a bit. Or just click here to go straight to the preview clip video player.
