Flower Cane- polymer clay tute by Glori305 Flower Cane- polymer clay tute by Glori305
For anyone who was here when I took all my tutorial's down, `Kitten-of-Woe featured me as artisan of the month, which made me feel pretty snarky about taking some of my tutorials down, so they are back up now.

This is a 5 petal flower cane of polymer clay.

Please note me if you use it, I will put a link to your deviation that you made with it here.

~Dlphnz13 made with this tutorial
and ~cherryreddragon made
~mieame made

I use a skinner plug for the petals, how to do a skinner blend is here [link] and how to make it into a plug is here [link]

And if you are looking for a more complex flower cane [link] that is not my blog, but it is a nicely laid out tutorial.

I want to thank you for posting this. I have been looking for hours to find some basic polymer clay tutorials. All I have found are designs that are too advanced for beginners (like me), and ones that are very expensive. I just want to try one to see if it's for me before I spend tons and realize I can't even do it. So thanks so much for posting some basic information about this art.

for this cane do you have to use the skinner blend?

You do not have to, but I do in the one in the demonstration. If you use solid color petals, make sure you outline them in either a darker or lighter shade of clay, so they stand out from each other.

how do you reduce the cane btw? do you just roll it? (just wondering)

Squeeze it down slowly, trying to keep the cane in the same general shape (round in this case, but you can make square or triangular canes too) start squeezing in the middle work to one end, then go back to the middle and squeeze down to the other.

Do not roll, you will twist the design.

Some people also reduce by slowly stretching the cane, pulling it thinner and thinner, but I have never had good luck with that.

once you wrap it in a color, can you roll the cane?

I suggest squeezing to reduce the size. I generally start in the middle and work my way to the ends.

I have tried rolling and found 2 problems with it. First, your layers will seperate if you have any air bubbles. Secondly, the cane will twist while rolling, twisting the design.
