*oh and on a side note, I bake all of my pieces in a home oven, on a a cardboard box piece on my tray and tented with foil, in a pre-heated 275 F degree oven for 40 minutes. I then remove hot from the oven and plunge in to icy cold water until the pieces are completely cool!

A tutorial from Clay and Paint in Belgium

Clay and Paint (Cernit) company sends me tutorials to share. I have been a little overwhelmed with my life and learning another thing just seemed too much for me at the time!

I got in to my blogs and everything had drastically changed in my blog world. All the things that I had gotten so good at had completely changed.

My brain just said no!

Well I am trying again, if you are willing to bear with me, I will get this stuff again!

Anyway here I go!




Blast from the past- 1st installment BPCanes

It is way too hot to take pictures. I was thinking that some of my content in the beginning of my blogging adventure was pretty cool, so sort of like summer re-runs on TV, I am going to re-post some of these babies that I really like.

Silence on a radio, no picture and sound on a TV, and no words on a blog are always a little disconcerting.

May your summer be cool.

May your drinks be cooler,

and may your heart be content.

Blessings all over all ya all!!

Just a note: Bead Space is no longer a viable link, but bead patterns are readily available all over the web!

Extruder Canes with Bead Patterns as a guide

I put up the color mixing chart yesterday for this project!

Millefiori is the glass technique of bundling or layering colored rods of glass together to form images and then cutting the cross section of the bundled or layered glass to get a little tile of an image. These colored rods of glass are called canes. I have seen this technique duplicated in many mediums, ceramic, candy, food, and polymer clay, and it can sometimes seem almost impossible to achieve, but if you start with basic design, bulls eye canes, open spirals and checkerboards just to name a few, you can combine those to make more intricate pictures or images, called advanced caning. Anytime two or more simple patterns are combined it becomes advanced. I have found a way to make intricate canes that is so easy to do, yet gives the impression of intricacy and complication. Bead patterns and a Makin’s Clay extruder are great for attempting this.
