So I reduced the Paisley cane today (half way through writing the post just waiting on the pictures) and am ready to start on putting together the polymer clay 'fabric' to coat the cake forks with. I have talked to my husband before about my lack of skill at cutting even slices from canes and shown him a picture of some of the cane cutting tools you can buy (in America but not easily in the UK of course). He said, "I am off to play in the garage, don't start cutting yet!" and was gone. I am hoping he is inventing me a cane slicing aid. I will let you know the outcome and will get the pictures of the now small Paisley cane uploaded.
My name is Cara Jane Hayman and I live in Bristol UK
My first polymer clay work, at age 7, was a tea set for my dolls. I have enjoyed it as a hobby since then but over the last few years it has grown from a hobby to a real passion! I have been lucky enough to attend creative workshops with many of the world’s finest polymer clay artists including Donna Kato, Christine Dumont and Carol Blackburn which has fuelled my passion even further.
I am having a great time exploring many of the endless possibilities polymer clay offers. You can follow me on my journey and find my tips, tutorials and polymer clay creations at www.carajane.co.uk
