How to make a polymer clay hair barrette / french clip


Today I made a french clip barrette from one of my new color schemes.  This particular cane comes from this month’s issue of Cane Builder e-zine.  Since I can never slice my canes evenly, I lay the slices out on the table, squish them together,  and flip the entire sheet over.  That way the cane slices lay evenly.

If you take time to wipe away your finger prints, you may not even have to sand the finished product.

    I heard rubbing your fingers in a little cornstarch prevents leaving any fingerprints behind and rubbing a little on the finished product before baking smooths off any fingerprints as well.

  5. Thank you for the tutorial. The cane work is beautiful!
