An Intermediate Polymer Clay Project
The Plaid Cane is deceptively simple, featuring a straightforward construction. The color play is achieved through a nontraditional use of a single Skinner blend.
The Shawl Pin is constructed easily with cookie cutters and a patterned veneer.
If you are comfortable with the Skinner blend technique and can reduce and re-assemble millefiori canes, you can do this project.
