Week 5: Stroppel Cane
Week 5 has come & gone and once again, we had two great tutorials to make & try. I have only been doing one of the two tutorials a week due to my time restrictions. But this week was one of my favorite canes, the Stroppel Cane. The second cane for this week was Ronit Golan’s Scrap Cane which I did not do because I used my scrap for Scrappy Heart Pins, Pens, & more.
The Stroppel Cane
Alice Stroppel is a very famous polymer clay artist. You can see Alice & all her work here at her blog. Last year she was generous enough to share with the world an ingenious way to use up those cane ends and wonky slices that we all seem to accumulate. She shared her idea for a scrappy cane, the Stroppel cane, with the world. You can read the story & her blog post on it here. In the meantime, here’s the video that Alice shared with the world back in 2011 when she showed her cane to the world. And just in case you don’t think that’s cool … take a look at the Stroppel 2 Cane!

Thanks you both ladies for the inspiration.
I have sooo many cool scrapes i didn’t know what to do with them! Now I can just wrap them up! Call it a wrap. 😀
Katie, your instructions will really help prevent so much waste in the future. I realized I started too small and without a clear plan. Love the transculent fill too and can’t wait to get something started.
You’re welcome Pamela! Alice is a master with polymer and it’s so generous of her to SHARE what she has learned and techniques she’s developed throughout the clay world.
Thank you for the post and link Kate, love the cane you made.
I’ve just posted Stroppel cane #2 to my blog. another fun one.
Alice how wonderful! Another great idea. Thank you for ALL you do for the polymer clay community. It is so much appreciated.
