cane-sliceThis guy turned out pretty fun – unfortunately, all the gloss made him not photograph so well. Maybe both shots below can give you the idea of the full picture. He’s about 12″ x 4 and made from polymer clay mounted on wood with mica powders a little paint.

He was inspired by my new cane slicer. The cane I made for his scales was fun. I started with a gradient of two clays with glitter in them and then did some rolling, slicing, and combining to create the cane.

A cane slicer is like a guillotine for clay. Although, one assumes you could also do some damage to your fingers, Barbie, or her friends if one were so inclined. While one doesn’t actually need a cane slicer it is SO much easier than a loose blade. It allows your to cut super paper thin slices of your cane and as the photo shows, you can cut more than one cane at once. It’s a bit of a luxury item and I’ve been wanting one for a while. I’d heard really good things about them and as soon as I tried it out, I was in love. Expect more caning in my future.

    The sound of “more caning” makes me nervous… but it’s hard to argue with the fabulous results!

    I believe that your inspiration comes from a snorkeling trip to the Keys where MANY Barracudas were spotted.

      You may be right. I didn’t think of that. LOL.
