Polymer Clay Central
Simple Valentine Cane
Text and Illustrations by Arlene Thayer


Materials:

  • White Fimo
  • Red Fimo
  • Heart shaped cutter.
Method:

Step 1: After conditioning the clay roll out into thick sheets.
Step 2: Stack them the same height as your cutter. Lay the cutter on the white sheets and allow about 1" for the border surrounding the heart.

Step 3: Cut through and remove cutter.
Step 4: Do the same with the red sheets (not necessary to allow border).
Step 5: Repeat steps one through four to make the cane about 1 1/2" in height


Step 6: Remove the white heart shapes from the center of the white sheets and replace with the red heart shapes from the red sheets. Press gently to seal seams. Trim the white sheets to a circle allowing the 1" border and use the squeeze method of reducing the cane. Use a portion of the cane to reduce further and place smaller hearts around the larger, then continue to reduce the cane.
