So, I made one of my favorite canes. I've heard it called a dozen names but I call it the Lynne cane because that was the name of the lady that I first saw do this.
This cane makes really pretty beads. This is the end so it isn't matching. I didn't want to cut it in the middle until I decided what to do with it. I used two packages of blue and two packages of white so I have about 6 inches of cane to use. I'll post the beads or whatever when I get them done.
Polymer clay puff beads are all the rage now. I did this one with some left over green clay and I used guilder's paste on it after I baked it. Sanded it a little and used PYMII for protection.
My buddy Buster is laying on wet tile that I just vacuumed and mopped. I don't get it. He chases the mop, slaps it and then rolls around on the wet floor. I always used Pine Sol and a little bleach to do the floor until he came along. I didn't want him licking his feet after he ran through the bleach. Now I use Simple Green. I think 9 months for a cat is like terrible twos for kids. Yesterday everytime I got on the phone, he started throwing his toys out of the box that he sits in by my desk. Good exercise for me but very boring. Everyone needs a Buster. He makes me laugh all day long.
Have to go finish the floors so I can play with clay.
