Atomic age Influence votive holder

While you are reading this I am escaping from home to go hang out with my friend Jodi and talk to an adult, craft until my fingers hurt, and stay up crazy hours. I am expecting to have a good time.

We are going to make some books ;-D

It is hot here, kind of cloudy and humid, I do not feel like doing anything. It is 99 degrees here and almost 4 pm on friday the 26th, crazy! 

I will talk to you all on Monday have a great weekend.

Be safe and be well.

Make the canes from the Black and white tutorials.

Continued from Part 1:

and Part 2:
and Part 3:

Save any pieces from the making of the canes that you have left over. We will use those.

You will need:

clay slicing blade

glass votive holder

Canes from tutorials

Start with the sputnik cane or I guess it could be a stylized dandelion, well whatever you want to call it.

Slice off the slices about 1/16″ thick and place around the top of the glass.

Do not press on just place.

When you have them spaced evenly with about an 1/8″ between all of them. 

Press into place. 

Here is a better view.

Add the second cane.

Place those below the others.

Press on firmly.

These are from the second cane and are left over.

Slice off some slices and round them a little with your fingers.

Place one of those between the big circles at the top of the rim of the votive holder.

Now I have added the pieces left over from the dandelion cane and placed those between the rectangle canes.

I added some of the spiral, basically I

am building a net of canes around the top of the glass. I can have small open areas as long as all of the canes are connected together.

I rolled the spiral cane down to about 1/4″ and added one to each of the bottoms of the rectangles.

Bake in a pre-heated 275 degree oven for 1/2 hour, shut off oven, and let cool in the oven.

Add a votive and you are good to go!
