Before I show you the new canes I made I want you to see the beads and a pendant I made with the last cobblestone cane.
I cut a fairly thick piece of the cane, ran it through the pasta machine a couple time to get the shape I wanted then added the end of the cane and dots of textured black clay highlighted with bronze PearlEx.
I used bronze chain that compliments the bronze accents of the dots to completely the necklace. The back is a solid black.
I used a triangle of the cane to make beads. First I made black beads and covered then with slices of the cane.
I used two slices on each bead. I cut them a little thicker than usual to give a more textured look to the beads.
I am not going to sand them. I may buff them a bit but I like the matt finish.
I made the next cane much like the first one, only this time I controlled myself and did not over reduced. Three cheers for me!! Rah, rah, rah!! This time I used olive green, mustard yellow, orange and grape for the colors. I'm not sure I like the orange.... maybe I should have used turquoise or a lighter orange...
The two square canes are made from the triangle cane. I am liking the orange better now.
I had a pile of bullseye cane ends from the extruded canes I used in the cobblestone cane, when I put them together this is the result. It's not a very long cane but I should be able to get several nice slices.
And of course I had to make at least one mirror image tile from the scraps.
I love this cane. I use the same colors as the one above but I added 3 sizes of bullseye canes in gray and black, I am thrilled with the result.
Here it is before reduction
After reduction.... and once again I did not over reduce!! Yeah!!
I made a slender border cane in gray and black to use with it.
This is the first pendant I made... it has not been cured or sanded yet. I has a bit of a pinwheel effect.
And here are all the new canes together. Be sure to click on the photos for a closer look.
I have more pendants in the oven. Lots of possibilities with these canes !! Plus I need to make more cobblestone canes in different colors. Monochromatic might be nice. That's it for today.
Thanks for stopping by.
