Love this design! I would also like more details about how this was made, it is so crisp and clean.
thank you i didnt take WIP pics for this particular cane but i did take some for an earlier one which i hope will be helpfull.
i generally start with a rough pencil line drawing which i transfer to tracing paper.
the rows of dots you can see are where i place the paper on a stack of clay and punch through with a pin to give me a guide line of where to cut.
i then pack the image with translucent clay to make it a regular shape which makes it easier to reduce (there is a good artical here on how to pack and reduce a cane: http://polymerclaycentral.com/cane_wrap.html )
the penguin cane suffered some distortion around the bottom as you can see
the magpie and the diamond canes were made using the same method. i simply cut away the translucent clay after reducing then baked and sanded the cane slices.
Totally rad. I don't understand anything You said but the finished product is amazing!
sorry. i guess i havnt made it very clear i hope this reply will help explain my methods if you have any questions just ask and i will see if i can help
