it looks like you got a little smearage on your cane when you sliced it. when i use softer clays in canes, i find a short trip in the fridge after reducing to help firm it up nicely so it doens't smudge.

Much much nicer than my cane attempts - I think that's very good for a first time! I wish mine looked as good!

Definitely a very decent orange cane!  You should enjoy caning even more once you get your feet really wet  Grin

One small thing I noticed on the cherry tart was that some of the glaze is visible down between the cherries as whitish ... you might want to tint your acrylic sealer or liquid clay or whatever you're using reddish so it won't look white (...for an acrylic glaze, try tinting with a bit of solid clay, acrylic paint, water-based ink, or food coloring, etc... if you're using liquid polymer clay, tint with artists' oil paint, oil pastel shavings, alcohol-based inks (like Pinata), etc.  (Those will all give a transparent tint that should be realistic.)  Then you'll have to glaze the tart part separately of course if you want it to look tidy.

Diane, I think it was still a bit wet when i took the pic. It doesnt look like that now so I guess it dried clear.
