Member Project Photos – Blue Morpho Butterfly Wing Cane

Polymer Clay Artists “Cindy, I absolutely love your butterfly wing tutorial. I was so amazed at how easy it was.” ~Jackie-N

This blog is a community meeting spot for many polymer clay artists ranging from beginner level all the way to advanced. It is a place for learning and applying new techniques that have been taught over at the Polymer Clay Video Library.

To date, there are over 289 jewelry and bead photos that have been uploaded to the Polymer Clay Facebook Gallery page, by the Artists and Members that hang out here. Way to go guys! As your Tutor, it makes me feel very proud to see how much everyone is accomplishing.

If you missed it, the last mini showcase of member projects focused on the Faux Dichroic Glass technique (Vol-026-3).

And today, the theme is… Butterfly Wing Cane (Vol-026-1). See compilation of Facebook photos posted further down on this page.

Cindy, I absolutely love your butterfly wing tutorial. I have been working on those for the past few days… Pendants, Pins, Hair barrettes… the possibilities are endless because of your wonderful ability to teach. I have also made dragonfly’s from the same cane. I was so amazed at how easy it was. I would love to show pictures as soon as I have them finished. ~Jackie-N

    I loved this tut. It was fun and they make. It also wonderful gifts.

  2. Tanya L, 18 August, 2010

    I agree. Everyone who saw mine absolutely loved them! And there’s absolutely no way I could have done this as a first cane without Cindy’s guidance and video, and have it come out near as well as it did! All credit goes to her when I tell anyone about any of my pc work, but especially these.. Thank you so much Cindy!

  3. Lorraine Coetzee, 18 August, 2010

    I just want to thank you Cindy for this tutorial. It was super fun and easy to do. I’ve made various items with my cane, like the Butterfly Princess (added on our Facebook page), and some pendants, which I will add as soon as the pictures have been taken. I am new to this group, and am still trying to find my way around; thanks Cindy for your patience and guidance. I am from South Africa, I believe here are other South Africans, too. Would love to connect with you.

    @Lorraine Coetzee: Lorraine, a big, warm welcome to you. You couldn’t have found a better place for learning and sharing polymer clay (PC). I saw your Butterfly Princess … lovely, and so unique … a truly creative imagination you must have.

    As far as finding your way around – the first trick is to use the search field at the top of the blog page. I’ve been around quite a while and I use that field almost every day. Then Cindy did a write up about finding your way around her sites … I’ll have to use the search field to find it … hang on while I go there …

    here you go … Tips for Using the Polymer Clay Tutor Web Sites

    These tips for finding your way around should help you a lot. Again, welcome to the best of the best!

    Wow, look at all these beautiful butterfly canes, wings, pendants, and jewelry! Talented members, combined with this fabulous tutorial — make quite a lovely display! Thank you so much, everyone, for sharing such inspirational pieces. And many thanks to Cindy, of course, for such a wonderful tutorial!

    @Lorraine Coetzee: I love your Butterfly Princess piece — I already raved about it on the other thread! :D I’m just so happy to see another new clayer from South Africa. I’m from the US, but I’ve seen posts from your countrymen/women in the past, trying to meet other clayers & find materials. I sincerely hope that you’re able to connect with them. You probably already know that if their name is in blue, they’ve linked to a website, blog, etc. That might make it easier contact them (in case they do not see your comment here.)

    If you haven’t already, try the search as Carolyn suggested — type “Africa” or “South Africa” in the box at the top of the page, and you’ll find the names of clayers from your country. For example, Srdjan, Marthie, etc. There’s a fairly recent post from Annette R.–>

    Also, you probably noticed Kim Putter from your country; she commented in the thread above you on the “Vol-026 July 2010…” (Aug. 4th) post. She’s looking for PC canes — perhaps you can supply her! (LOL…or maybe?) That link is in the “Recent Comments” list to the right, if you wanted to reply to her comment and say, “Hi!” ;D

    Welcome; I wish you the best of luck! ~Kat Riverside, CA, USA

    @Lorraine Coetzee: Big welcome to you, Lorraine, all the way from South Africa. It is so great to see your pictures showing up at the Facebook Gallery page. Keep them coming.

    And to everyone else, I’m glad you are liking these mini-showcase features. Sometimes it is nice to see how one technique can be used in a variety of ways and styles.

    @Phaedrakat: My hope is that the “Polymer Clay Artist” photo collages at the top of these posts, will encourage some of our old friends to come back and say Hi… and by old, I did not mean “old” :-)

    I am starting to get concerned about Ritzs. There is a problem with her library account which she is not responding to. And that is just not like her. If anyone is able to check up on her somehow, that would be greatly appreciated.

  7. Phaedrakat, 20 August, 2010

    @Cindy Lietz: I’m worried too! She did say 3 – 6 months though, and I know from experience it takes so long to even know (or care) what is going on while trying to recover from spinal surgery. I was offline for months after my 1st one. I hope someone knows how to reach her so we can find out if she’s OK. Also to let her know about the library. She’d be so upset if something happened to her acct. / videos.

  8. Lupe Meter, 18 August, 2010

    All of these are just beautiful!

  9. Elizabeth S., 18 August, 2010

    Congrats everyone!! I’m so proud to be part of such a talented group. As always you have all inspired me to go higher. Thank you.

  10. Peggy Barnes, 18 August, 2010

    I am getting very tired but before I shut down I just want everyone to know how very happy I am for each and everyone of you and all the hard work you have put in. Cindy must be beaming every time she goes to look at these pictures of all your art pieces. It is not just jewelry they are beautiful pieces of art and you all did Cindy and Doug proud. You guys and gals have all accomplished a wonderful thing here. All of you have bragging rights for a long time coming. Every piece look like it was done by a professional. Stand tall and be very proud of yourselves. I am proud to be able to call you my friends.
    Many Uuuuugggggggs, Peggy

  11. Carrie W., 19 August, 2010

    Amazing stuff everyone! That pink and purple one is gorgeous!!!

  12. Tanya L, 19 August, 2010

    Thanks everyone! And thank you too, Cindy! Believe me, I was VERY surprised to see a pic of my wings up there (mine are the two loners), and it really made my day. Couldn’t wait for my husband to come home at lunch so I could show him “Look, Cindy posted a pic of my butterfly wings!!!”!

  13. Phaedrakat, 19 August, 2010

    I love the little icons in the picture up top. Seeing them makes me wonder about certain people who haven’t posted lately — like Ritzs & Mary. Actually, we knew Ritzs would be gone awhile. But where is Mary from Oz? (Can a non-Australian native call it that?) Seeing her pretty Frangipani up there reminds me of her fun sense of humor. Miss you both!

    @Tanya L: And fine wings they are! ;D Seriously, they are awesome. Then figure in that it’s your first cane? C’mon! Faaab – u-louuus! Have a beautiful day… :D

    @Peggy: I hope you are feeling better and more rested, Peggy. Many Uuuuuggs to you, Kat

  14. Tanya L, 20 August, 2010

    @Phaedrakat: Thank you so much Kat! After being plagued by computer problems (again!) I got swarmed by all my kids (the older 2 have flown the nest) and grandson, so it was a beautiful day!

  15. Mavis T, 24 June, 2011

    All of the samples shown are beautiful!
    I have to say that my fave is the pink with the little body
    of the butterfly ~ will have to try it, after I practice awhile :)

  16. Mavis T, 24 June, 2011

    Thought I had already posted ( sigh)
    I think all the butterfly wing projects are beautiful, but my fave is the pink one with the cute little butterfly body added ~
