Believe it or not, as long as I've been working with clay, I haven't really done much with kaleidoscope canes. After the free tutorial of craft.edu today, I thought I'd give it a shot. I'm happy with the results. I've made some coordinating lace canes and we'll see what comes of it. :)

Well, since it's been almost a year since I've worked with polymer clay, easing back into it has been sort of painful. I started making some simple things.

It took over a month of trial and error before I made this technique work. The technique itself is quite simple and really rather soothing. Watching colors blend is a joy. Yeah, sometimes some truly horrendous mixing happens but it's all in good fun. I'm so pleased with this series, I think that I could spend the rest of my life just making this type of bead.

I bought a soldering gun and some metal working supplies. I'm scared to death because I'm probably going to maim myself using them. I manage to cut myself with clay blades constantly so add in some hot metal, caustic chemicals, sharp metal bits and filings and I'll probably be in the ER before the week is out. lol
