BJ's Polymer Clay Border Canes

I took a few days off from blogging but I continued to play with clay.  I made another border cane, this time in pastels and black.

Click on the photos for a closer look.

I combined white with green, blue, magenta and purple to make the pastes.  I buy large amounts of black and white clay but it never seems to be enough.... I'm out of Premo black and getting very low on white.  I went to Michaels on thursday hoping clay would be on sale but no luck.... I did get a new Ott light though, 40% off,  and some Easter toys for Lily.


Here is the border cane with a mirror image tile that I made with the end scraps.


Heart tiles for pendants made from scraps.


The black backed heart has a border in lavender and pink along the side. It was hard to get a photo showing the edge... here is the best I could do.


I put a blue and green border edge on the green backed heart.


I made a Pod Pendant with the rest of the scraps.  I will add wire to this and make a necklace.


Another angle of the pod. I like the organic look and feel of pods. 


Here is the back of the pod. 



I was rearranging my border canes in a storage container.... they looked so cool together  I thought you would like to see them too.  Pretty snazzy, right?


Cool colored canes


Warm colored canes


Thats it for today.  I will try to post a couple times a week from now on, time does get away from me though.  I am planning a tutorial but can't promise when it will be done. 

Thanks for stopping by.
