Pardo Art Clay Canes & Pendants

I was so happy to get my white Art Clay I spent the weekend making canes. I started out with a nice assortment of Skinner blends and striped canes. 

Click on the photos for a closer look.

Then I made some Kaleidoscope Canes. I've said it before but it's worth repeating, this clay reduces so well, very little distortion as you can see. 

More canes, I like the yellow one best but my favorite is rarely the favorite of others. 

I used the scrap ends of one of the above canes to make this pendant and then added colored wire and fringe beads.  I think I will add either a raven or an owl on the pendant, I'll post a photo when I decided which to use.

 Another pendant from the end of the blue cane.   I used silvertone wire to make the bail.

I am still making canes... and will need more white clay soon. 

By the way I haven't had any further problems condition the art clay.  I opened a couple new packs of black and it conditioned with ease. Apparently just the one pack was bad.  


  1. ooooooooh, what a beautiful post. The canes, the colors, the patterns, the photos; yum. Thanks. - Marlene

  2. You're welcome Marlene, I appreciate the kind words. Thanks for stopping by. BJ

  3. That darn white clay - I know! I need to order more white right now, too. Of all the canes, the yellow one is my favorite, too.... I guess we have similar tastes. I love it!

  4. Really? You need more white clay? Wink, wink :-)

  5. What beautiful vibrant colors and beautiful canes!

  6. Thanks Jackie, you obviously have very good taste! LOL

    LOL, you got something in your eye Martha? You can never have to much white clay.... right?

  7. Nope, it's a tic, and you can't have too much translucent either:)

    I love them all. Even the yellow, though I'm not a yellow person. Can't wait to see what you did with cane in the middle of pic #2.
