PUBLISHED! The Polymer Arts

     Ok and now for change #4.  I'm still pinching myself about this one.  I've written an article for The Polymer Arts and it's going to be published in the upcoming edition.  This has had me nervous and excited - and I'm still feeling like that awkward person who isn't quite sure what she's doing.  It's a big step for me!  Thank you for everything, Sage!!!
    The Article is called Caning by Numbers: Complex Cane Design.  I go through my process of drawing and designing my canes, using graphing paper and math to help me calculate the amount of clay, size of the canes, and the dimensions of my cane for optimal size for reduction.   It's probably more 'geeky' than most polymer articles, but I've found that a little of bit of planning helps me to plan and prepare.  Plus it cuts down on those leftovers bits that you are always trying to find a use for.  =)
     I have a class in the works on CraftArtEdu that goes into the process in more detail in order to make a fun, acorn shaped Inro with complex caned details.  If you have any questions, please just ask.  I think the best way for me to learn as a teacher is to know what my students are looking for.  And thanks for all the patience and support!


  1. Hi Deb!
    I saw your work On Polymer Clay Daily and was blown away! You are amazing!!

    Then I just realized I also saw your tute on Craftartedu! Yes!! Your free tutes!!

    So I am here browsing through your blog and I see no comments anywhere! What?? Why aren't any people gushing over your amazing talents?!!

    Well - they should be!!

    Tell me - when do you stop? When do you sleep? And when do you eat!!

    I have been sitting on your flickr page just clicking next and next and next and my mouth is hanging open and I'm absolutely stunned at what you do! So I sent my friend an email telling her to rush over and have a look (even though she is on holiday!)

    You rock girl! You truly do!

    Just saying....

  2. Thank you so very much! =) I guess the old saying is "I'll sleep when I'm dead." And as always there is always too much to do and too little time. Your words are wonderful to hear. Thanks for the smile you've brought to my face. *hugs*
