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 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.
Thankfully, when I quit working with clay, I stopped abruptly so I have things in many stages of completion. There is nothing worse than doing one repetative action for hours on end like sanding or wire wrapping. I made my first color palette last night. I based it on a lovely John Waterhouse painting called "Ophelia." He always picks such lovely, rich colors. This is the painting I used.

Okay. It's been a year since my last post, and what a year it's been! Here are some photos of me at a craft show over the summer.
