I said I would never get into canework with poly clay... well, never say never! I made my very first clay cane today and here it is:
It's a leopard spot! I know, I know, it's nothing spectacular, but I am right proud of it anyway, and made it several sizes. I even made a little square wrapped cane with the spot in the middle! Simple I know, but it's what I'm going to DO with them that's going to be so cool. (Hint: lower right corner of photo.)
And I did lots of research to make this cane-- its hard to find a decent tutorial on making a leopard spot cane. The best one I could find was one on making a leopard cane license plate holder. But I didn't think that cane looked quite right-- too perfect of a spot, you know? So I looked at lots of photos of leopards to get an idea of what it should look like, too. My gosh, they are absolutely gorgeous animals! I wanted to pet one. But I digress...
Okay, I was going to wait until the project was complete, but I'm too excited! He just came out of the oven, and I have to share:
But the spotted madness doesn't end here (well, it does for tonight)-- stay tuned for the completed project, coming soon!
