Free Tutorials You Just Have To Try !

First on my list was Bettina Welker’s cane she calls “Pixelated Retro Blend Cane”. It’s a twist on the extruded retro “Klimt” cane that has become so popular. Here is what I made using her tutorial.

Next I want to try Marie Davis’ border cane


The next is a fun, funky bracelet and I believe was written by Anna Anpilogova. It’s in Russian ) I think) but the pictures say it all 🙂

I use this tutorial by Valerie Wallace to make tile beads a few years ago. It sure helps keep the bead holes even!

I recently did a variation on this tutorial to make a quick and easy pendant. The tutorial will soon be on the Polymer Clay Central website.

Faux Fun

When I started claying doing faux stone techniques was one of my favorite thing to do. I used translucent clay and added inclusions like embossing powders and dried flowers. Later I tried adding alcohol inks to tint the clay and it worked very nicely. A combination of the 3 would be a great experiment. I’ll have to add that to the list. 🙂

One of my favorite pieces was this inro wearable vessel I made many years ago.
