This past weekend I found a box that had some left over and end cane pieces. I decided to try the Stroppel Cane but made my black sheets a little thicker. I love doing this cane it's amazing what comes out of it.
The focal pendant has Magic Glos on it. Let me tell you about the beads. Someone told me they were using Future on raw clay. They were making beads and rubbing the Future on them to smooth them out and get the finger prints off of them. I made my beads, did the Future thing, let it dry, baked the beads at 265 degrees and they came out brown and had bubbles on them. So, I put them in the tumbler for 8 hours and most of the Future came off but they had a funny white film on them. I hand sanded them all. I don't like Future on my beads or pendants, I like sanding and buffing but was running out of time. I put 6 coats of Future on these and then put them back in the oven at 200 degrees for 20 minutes to set the Future, this gave them a glass like finish. You can click on the picture to see it closer. Thanks Alice, this is fun and a great way to use up old cane pieces. I'm putting this in the craft fair this weekend. If it doesn't sell, you will see me wearing it a lot. I still have cane left so I'll have to make a bracelet and earrings to match.
