Gentleman's Fancy Polymer Clay Cane Tutorial

Learn how to make a quilt block inspired polymer clay cane using Sculpey clay.
Earlier this week I showed you how to make an easy, quilt block inspired, polymer cane called Friendship Star. I have one more to show you that is a little bit larger, and more intricate called Gentleman's Fancy.

Gentleman's fancy clay cane



The only extruder disk you need for this project is the right triangle. I cut all of my extruded lengths to 3 inches, but you can make yours longer or shorter depending on how you will use your cane.

Extrude 8 light colored triangles, 12 medium colored triangles and 16 dark colored triangles.
Press together a length of medium and light colored clay to make a square. Make four of these squares.
Press together the four squares to make a block that has the medium clay at the center and the light at the corners.

As you may be able to see, to create this cane we are going to work from the center out.
Next, make 4 dark colored triangles by pressing two triangles together, side by side.
Add the dark triangles to the block.
Next, using two medium colored triangles and a light colored triangle for each piece, make 4 trapezoids.

(This may be the first time I have used the word 'trapezoid' in a blog post.)
Add the trapezoids to the block.
Make 4 more large triangles using the dark clay as before.
Add the corners to the block.
Once this block is assembled, it's easiest to compress the pieces together with a roller.

After the block is completely compressed, you can use reduce the cane and use it in your work as desired.
