I have always been a fan of Art Deco and Art Nouveau designs so I decided to try my hand at Art Nouveau canes
I haven't worked with Kato clay for awhile... I had forgotten how time consuming it is to condition, especially the older formula... lots of hammering and swearing was involved. I tucked one hunk of particularly hard blue clay inside my bra to warm it up while I conditioned the other colors. I then spent 20 minutes trying to find where I put the blue clay.....
Here are the canes. Click on the photos for a closer look.
Not crazy about this one... it's okay
This is one of my favorites.
This one is pretty cool too.
I like this one.
Least favorite of this set
I love this one!
This one will make fun beads.
I used the cane ends and scrap pieces to make hearts. These haven't been sanded or buffed yet.... my dremel died. I'm hoping Santa will bring me a new one.
I'm making more canes but I have to spend the next few days "wrapping" my gift for this years gift wrap challenge. I want to get it out of the way so I can stop fretting about it. I'm thinking this challenge is going to a good one... several folks claim to have the winning gift.
Thats it for now.
Thanks for stopping by.
Please feel free to ask questions or leave a comment, I love hearing from you.
