 Piezas Matrix Cane by celindaPolymer Clay Central has announced the January 2008 Challenge theme: Cane Slices. Want to participate, but aren't sure where to start? Here's a few resources for making polymer clay canes.

Even though I'm not much of a caner myself, I've still bookmarked quite a few useful & inspirational cane-related sites. But I hope those of you who are caners will leave a comment & let me know where you find cane ideas & tutorials.

So you've got the cane slices, & now you're wondering what to cover...? (Or for some, the question's what NOT to cover!) Check out Glass Attic's Covering Things section for tips on what to cover with canes and how to do it.

If you're entering your cane work in PCC's Challenge, mail your entries in by January 15, 2008, for a chance to win one of three prizes.


I love to do canes as it's fun to combine colors and see what patterns you come up with. it's always a beautiful surprise. Linda

Thanks for your comment, Linda... although I have to disagree with you on one thing. Canes -- at least mine -- are not always a *beautiful* surprise! :-)
