  1. Thank you so much for all your wonderful instructional videos and your time doing them. I’m learning more each day and getting better at clay-skills.

    1. You’re very welcome Louise! I’m glad you’re learning. Continue to learn and absorb and your talent with clay will grow with every minute you put in.

  2. I love 2 for 1’s….this is a time saver for sure! Thanks bunches, I’ll be back for more 🙂 God Bless

    1. Thank you! Enjoy & bless you too, my friend!

  3. I am a newbie to the clay beads and I am already addicted! A year ago I bought clay to make Minions (yellow and purple) as decorations for my twins birthday cake. About a month ago I was on Pinterest and saw all of the jewelry you can make using clay and I thought- I have some of that left over! Now I’m hosting a party this Sunday afternoon for some girlfriends, and we are going to make beads! I love making jewelry… I started with acrylic flowers and alcohol inks. I have so many projects going at once, and now I have to try this! I guess my kumihimo beaded necklace will have to wait!

    Do you ever seal or dip your clay to make it shinny?

    1. I seal my pieces that will be worn or that have an additive like blending chalks, mica powders, etc on them. But I do NOT seal my figurines as a general rule. I’m glad you are having a good time with clay! Thanks for stopping by!

  4. Thank You Soo Much for your free tutorials, lost my job and am trying to hold on. free tutorials really help! I can’t afford to buy them, am trouble getting my supplies. I am very grateful to you for sharing and your kindness! Thank You!!!!!!!!

    1. I’m sorry to hear that you have lost your job but I’m glad I can help in some way by providing you tutorials that you can then make something and have a chance to sell it, earning you just a bit of money to hold on. My thoughts & prayers go out to you! Happy claying…

  5. Katie, thank you SO much for sharing this tutorial. I am spatially dyslexic, so I tried creating these kinds of flower canes, and ended up with something completely alien ().
    These instructions are very straightforward and easy to follow. I can’t wait to use the Pink-to-white skinner blend plug I’ve been saving, to make your flower canes.
    P.S. I want to support your time and effort, so I look forward to shopping your sites for supplies and tutorials.

    1. Thank you Sandy for the compliments. I know your canes will be beautiful! Feel free to come back and leave a link to the picture. Thank you also for browsing our tutorials we have available for purchase. I’m blessed that you recognize the amount of time & effort put in. Thank you!

  6. Thank you for sharing this ! I’m below beginner when it comes to caning and I experimented with making a skinner blend and it came out nicely but I thought then what do I do with it ? Many people rolled it into a bulls eye cane which I did but again got stuck at what do I do with it now ? This is a very simple idea on what to do with those bulls eye canes I made. I’m gonna try it out and make some flowers. They’d go great with my other non-cane clay creations.

    1. I’m so glad you liked this one! Sometimes knowing what to do or “what’s next” is the hardest part of claying. I’m glad your willing to give it a try. Feel free to come back and post a link to your finished flower canes so other people can share in them as well.

  7. I am so happy that I found you! Thank you! I can’t wakt to try this today !

    1. Great! Enjoy Jamie. Feel free to come back and share a link to your results!

  8. Thanks so much Katie! I can’t wait to try this neat trick.

  9. Oh, thank you! I can’t wait to try this

    1. You are more than welcome! Thanks for asking & enjoy!
