Cane Work with Polymer Clay | Quilted In Clay

Just had to let you see the wonderful work of this artist. Her amazing color choices and splendid ways of working with polymer clay canes and quilting designs has really inspired me to create some canes of my own. The quilts alone look like real life miniature quilts. You hardly know you are looking at clay and not a fabric created patchwork quilt. She shows you the process of creating just the right colors of clay to start with and how she begins to create the many shapes she uses with a clay gun also known as an extruder and she even uses the help of a handy dandy press made from a couple of pieces of a cut 2" X 4" with a hole drilled out into the center towards the edge of one of them so that the extruder will fit into it making it much easier for her to press the clay out of the extruder as needed. Sure she saves herself lots of muscle pain with that neat gadget.

Take a look for yourself, and while you are at it, brows through her website and see all the wonderful things she creates.
