as the knitted polymer clay tree decorations were so popular i thought i would share what i have been working on

as before i havn't actually 'knitted' the polymer clay. the illusion is a result of twisting and looping strands of extruding polymer clay. the cable is made the same way as the tree decorations (original thread with tute: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=367662.0)

excuse the fluff Embarrassed im usually meticulous about it but since these are 'sketch book' pieces im not to fussy.

experimenting with plaited cables. i struggled trying to get the plait even as it kept stretching and distorting Undecided

Fantastic job!
It really looks like super soft thick strands!
I wonder if something like this could be made out of fondant. It would be amazing to cover mom's bday cake with it Cheesy
