Since Madi has been on the planet I have gotten more colds than I have had in my entire life time.
It is a good thing I really like her ;-D
I am having a giveaway on Mary's Graces blog or I am the one giving the blog giveaway item this week. I am a member of the Mary's Graces Team on Etsy and it is a wonderful group of artists I am so proud to be a part of. Do not comment here, comment over there. Come join us!
And now on with the show...
You can find these Atomic age beauties on Etsy.
Set of 8, now that is really amazing. And the price... even more amazing.
Maplewood Bungalow on Etsy, great vintage finds
and Part 2:
You will need:
2 blocks of Opaque White Cernit
1 block of Black Cernit
Porcelain White Cernit big block
Clay Slicing blade
Links lead to my husband's store http://www.clayfactory.net/.
Thank you for looking or buying, we appreciate it very much. It helps us eat and pay the bills.
Mix the small blocks of Opaque white with equal amounts of the porcelain white.
Then mix the black block with an equal amount of the porcelain white. It will look slightly lighter, but bakes up a beautiful black color.
1. This is your 6 1/2". ;-D
Make sure lines are showing on this side of the cane.
3. Cut cane in half.
4. Here is what it should look like.
Anything close to this, you have done a good job, pat your self on the back. Pretend I did it.
5. Place on the sheet of black clay rolled out on the 5th thickest setting. Fan lines down.
6. (really about step 40 something) Trim away the black so you have a sheet of black the same size and your cane block.
7. There you go, now place the sheet on top of the other half of cane you have mirroring the top cane with the cut edges on the same end.
8. Press together gently. You could if you wished reduce this cane down here and make an awesome border out of this, can you see it?
9. Roll out a coil of white that is over 2 1/2" long and about 1/2" in diameter.
10. Place the white coil on the black sheet that is rolled out on the 5th thickest setting.
Trim the sheet so it is the same width as the coil is long.
11. Roll up in black sheet.
Roll over the edge of the beginning of the sheet over the other side of the sheet to make a mark. Roll back away from the mark.
12. Here you can see the mark I made with the edge of the clay.
Tilt the blade towards the cane. Cut at this angle.
14. Roll up and press the edges together.
15. Roll the coil down and extend the length.
Roll down to about 1/4" in diameter.
17. Cut 4 pieces the length of your cane block.
