Profile Face Cane
Dec. 23, 2017
10am – 4pm
Clay  included

A full tutorial included for future reference
7 page pdf and a 40 minute video


Making face canes with polymer clay may seem challenging, but I’ll make it easy. I’ve developed a simple technique that will have you producing you own fun and funky characters to use on bracelets, card holders, picture frame or whatever your imagination can come up with.

Not only will I walk you through all the steps in this workshop, you’ll go home with a link to download 7 pages of detailed step by step instructions with drawings, photos and patterns. Plus……the link to a bonus 40 minute video showing exactly how to do each step. So you’ll never have to take a note or try to remember how to do something you learned in class.

You’ll learn how to shape the face slices and change the expression on each face. I’ll show you how I cover a bracelet blank and you’ll spend some time learning hair canes.

This is an intermediate class and you should know how to create a skinner blend.
