Sunrise, sunset - week five of canes


Hi Everyone,

I'll be teaching landscape canes at Guild at the end of February. Here's one I put together just for fun - I had some scrap clay that I decided to see what would happen if I skinner blended. It turned into a nice sunrise/sunset sky. Started adding the land and then thought it should have a sun.

I'm happy with it and looking forward to seeing it reduced more. I'm saving the reduction for class though. I'm not sure if I'll lose the detail of the land colours as I reduce. We'll see.

I forgot to put my penny in the photo. Cane is about 2 inch wide by 3/4 inch tall at the moment.

All told this one took less than an hour to put together, but that's an unusually fast cane for me. It's all about cookie cutters.

Expect to see more landscape canes over the next few weeks as I practice my demos for Guild.

Cheers,

Sandy

I absolutely love this sunrise, sunset cane. I really like landscape canes, in general, I even have the VHS tape on landscape canes, which taught me some really interesting techniques. I think the colors on this cane are just fabulous. Smiles

These canes look really good. How do you make them? I have just discovered polymer clay and will keep coming back here for ideas and help.
