First attempt at a butterfly cane!

Here are some pictures of the butterfly canes that I promised to show you yesterday. I made both of the canes over this past weekend. This was my first attempt at a butterfly cane. Not my first attempt at caning, mind you, just caning of butterflies! I think that they came out alright. The larger yellowish one looks a tad distorted. But I think it's because the new formula of the Premo brand of clay. It's very squishy stuff. Almost too soft. I'm hoping that if I let them "rest-up", that they will firm up a little bit. Otherwise slicing them, without distorting them further will be rather difficult. Guess I'll have to wait and see. I'm also not quite sure what I'm going to do with all of it. I mean I don't really need that much. Guess I'll have butterfly cane for the next few years!

Oh yeah, and before I forget, here are a few pictures of the necklaces that I made with the faux ceramic beads that I showed you yesterday. I realize that they are very simple and plain looking, but there is something about that faux ceramic look that just lends itself to a more natural and simple design. I like them, and they look great around your neck! Okay take it easy, and I'll be back in a few days. Thanks for stopping by!

They came out great, considering the mushy clay. Have you tried Kato?
