The canes featured on the Polymer Clay Workshop banner are gemstone canes. I developed the technique because I wanted to make canes without the bother of “packing” the clay to make a background for a flower pattern. To this day I’m not very good at canes with pictures that require packing in extra sections! Once I made a cane, well, as you can see, I went a little crazy!
I think my all-time favorite use for gemstone canes is picture frame veneers!
