Here are some Coral Reef and Under the Sea canes made by subscribers. I’ve received more beautiful pictures, but these are the ones I have saved on this computer at the moment. The tutorial and video for these can be found on my Patreon page here
These beads are by Minky Toms
These cabs are by Peggy Rose.
See many of the patterns in the tutorials in my Etsy shop!
For a long time now, I’ve wondered if I could make edible canes. I tried this recipe for candy clay, and made butterflies from this month’s Cane Builder tutorial. Video on my Instagram and Pinterest.
I’m always looking for good color combinations. I like the colors in this kaleidoscope inspired by this back issue of Cane Builder.
All premo brand.
The two blends are the aqua (turquoise) blend, and a blend that is half ultramarine and half cadmium red like this post. The yellow is cadmium yellow with a trace of white and the purple mix from the blend. The darkest color is green with a little cadmium red.
Here is my recipe for the Pantone color of the year for 2019. It’s called living coral. The pictures turned out a little darker and redder than the actual clay. You could use more white or orange if you choose. This is premo brand polymer clay. The coral color is
2 parts cadmium red : 1 part orange : 1 part white.
For other fun blends check out this month’s (January) issue of Cane Builder.
Here are some fun ways to layer canes. These are translucent and solid color canes.

I tried these canes on forms to make hollow beads!
Here is the lace tutorial itself. It happens to come with a fun sparkle cane!
