11-01-19-OF-PinWheel-Pt1PinWheel Tongues Of Fire Cane - Part 1
This is the first part of a cane tutorial using Tongues Of Fire colors of white, yellow, red, and black. I make a pinwheel. Then it is cut into 4 sections. One section is left whole, two sections are cut in half, and one section is cut into fourths.

I am showing still pictures with 5 seconds of narration for each picture and that was a learning experience. In real time the cane construction took about an hour.
This video shows just how easy it is to take a new cane, chop it up, toss it like egg salad, and make natasha beads.

I used new Tongues of Fire cane that I made with rejuvenated polymer clay.

To clay one needs a space carved out, doing the rubic's cube shuffle of stuff. Some thoughts of "the plan" of the Rose Cane.
10-10-19: ClayMates: I had my son drag out my polymer clay supplies so I can access them. I woke up with the desire to make some thing. Don't know what. I have a lot of uncured items that have been in storage for years. I don't know if my supplies are usable but I have a feeling they could be if mixed with Liquid polymer clay. We'll see.

Response to a request to post photos of my new creations I replied:

 "I'm planning on posting tutorials and videos of my return to polymer clay. I'll post them here on FB. I woke up with the desire to make little "Book Pins" merging polymer clay with my writing process. There were tutorials on how to put polymer clay covers on note books. I'm reading Harry Potter for the first time and the Book of Monsters just tickled me."

I will post photos and videos to this website, my polymer clay YouTube channel, and my FB Page focused on art and writing.
