Polymer Clay Faux Fabric Pins Thing a Day Day 3

I spent a couple hours yesterday afternoon making this cane... it didn't turn out the way I wanted, it's kinda blah and I over reduced. I put it aside for a while and then started playing around with it. I wanted to enlarge the pattern so I cut 4 thick slices put them on a thin backing sheet and ran them through the pasta machine.....

With the help of texture sheets, amber color wire and dyed culture pearls I made these faux fabric pins... which I love!! It feels good when one of my "lemons to lemonade" ideas work.

I'm working on tutorials so I won't forget how I made'em.


  1. Wow!!v What a gorgeous save! They came out beautiful :)

  2. First of all, I think the cane is gorgeous, funny that you didn't like it. But the pins - oh my! They are wonderful, I love all the pearls, what zing they add. Beautiful work!

  3. It's not the worst cane i've made.... just not what I was going for... I still have a small hunk of it left. Maybe it will grow on me.

    I do love the dyed pearls, they look great with the wire, nice to know you like them too.
