Frame 1

And here's the completed cane applied to a papier maché frame...

Here's how it looks as a graphics image, all linked together as one big cane! In reality, I glued it (using Sobo brand glue) to a papier maché frame, then painted the back and inside of the frame with two coats of acrylic paint.

Look below to see the actual caned frame!

Here it is!

Frame 2
I added a stripe from another kaliedoscope cane,
only this one was done with different colors...
(mainly white, navy and purple.)

More ideas on how to use canes:

  • cover bottles
  • cover tinware
  • cover papier maché shapes (coat with Sobo Glue and allow to dry tacky)
  • cover glass votives
  • cover metal jar lids
  • cover acrylic frames

Have fun! Hope you liked it!
