Fireworks Polymer Clay Cane
Fire Works! I love watching fireworks, whether it's the pull out all the stops show put on for Independence Day at our local fairgrounds, or the simple fountains we set off in the backyard during a Fourth of July BBQ. This is a cane inspired by those colorful explosions!
This tutorial assumes a basic knowledge of working with polymer clay. The Polymer Clay FAQ at Polymer Clay Central is a good place to start if you are a novice at polymer clay.
*Work surface. I like to use a 12X12 marble tile I picked up at the hardware store.
*Sharp cutting blade. You can order specialty blades, but I prefer using a wallpaper scraping blade. This might be in part because there is a paint store across the street from me, and I can walk over and grab a new box whenever I need fresh, sharp blades!
*Black clay (Or a deep, dark purple could also look very cool)
*Glow-in-the-dark clay. I used the classic "white" glow-in-the-dark, but you can also get different colors of glow-in-the-dark. Or you could just go with a bright or fluorescent orange, blue, purple, yellow, etc.
*Your HANDS! The most important tool.
