Well this was my first attempt at any sort of cane, I've only worked with polymer clay once, so I was excited that the beads mildly look like lemons. I found instructions on how to do this here: http://polymerclaycentral.com/candy_citrus.html. Despite their lumpyness I adore them. Enjoy!

Don't worry about the lumpyness, canes get much easier to make as you keep practicing. My first citrus cane beads were totally uneven, but I sanded the edges to make them look more rounded.
But I found out that you can reduce the cane a whole lot and your slices will look more like the real thing.

I pop my cane in the freezer for about 2 minutes and I make sure I use a sharp slicer/razor when cutting it. Smiley

Thanks! It definately was a hot day, so hopefully freezing them will help make it a bit easier. I will also have to hunt for some sandpaper
