SUPER EASY ANIMAL PRINT CANE

1 You will need-
CERNIT no1 brown/glamour antique gold/glamour gold/polymer clay blade.

2 First take the antique gold and roll the whole packet into a ball,then form this into a
cylinder shape. With the brown make lots of snake like pieces ( I used most of the packet
but not all)

3 Take the cylinder shape and make a channel using a tool ( you could use a pencil)

4 Arrange the brown snakes around the cylinder ,start by placing one into the channel first.
Make sure you leave a gap.

5 Squeeze together slightly and trim of the end. It should now look like the above photo
( photo 4)

6 Lengthen the whole piece by squeezing and stretching ( slowly) Cut into five equal
equal pieces.

7 Roll out your gold clay using a roller ( or wine bottle) or a pasta machine on the number
4 setting. Wrap each piece in this colour making sure that the joins don’t overlap.

8 Put the pieces together like shown.

9 Lengthen the whole piece and cut into six equal pieces. You can use these canes as they
are for a simple animal print look or arrange them like I have done for a more complex
look.

SIMPLE ROSE TUTORIAL

SIMPLE ROSE TUTORIAL

SIMPLE ROSE TUTORIAL

These beautiful roses are just so easy too make! Try adding them to hair clips, bracelets, rings and tiaras! They will also look stunning sewn onto a childs cardigan or hat! Or simply add them to your hand made cards!

GETTING STARTED
Always make sure you have clean hands, and your work surface is clean and free from dust.
As usual, ensure that you condition your clay before you begin your project.

TOOLS & MATERIALS
Sharp blade
Ceramic tile for baking

STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS

1. I have chosen two different colours because I like to mix the colours to create different shades. So start by mixing the two colours together to create your desired shade.

2. Form your clay into six small balls ( the size of a pea)

3. Flatten each ball by gentley pressing and turning in your fingers.

4. Roll your first petal loosley with your fingers, then one by one wrap each petal around the center. Each time you add a petal gently stroke the edges to curve them over slightly.

5. Once all your petals are in place gently squeeze and roll in your fingers to secure them all together, making sure you dont squeeze the petals together.

6. Take your blade and cut of the excess clay.

7. Using your green clay; roll into two tiny balls, flatten and elongate by pressing in your fingers.
8. Place the two pieces onto the flat side of the rose, forming a cross like shown.

9. If you are using your rose as a charm then you could add a headpin by placing directly through the center of the rose or simply add a jump ring by threading the jump ring through one of the leaves before attaching to the flat side of the rose. For the hair clip and ring leave and bake as they are.

10. Place your rose onto a ceramic tile and bake in the center of your oven at 130c for around 10/15 minutes.
