Yes, these are polymer clay canes so detailed that it seems impossible. Since 1991, Wes Warren from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, has been perfecting his caning technique and making his living from his well-developed skills.
Many of his beads are built on sports or team imagery. His word canes are incredibly precise.
I picked up this Canadian inspiration by way of Israel from Iris Mishly’s blog, Polymeri Online. You’ll want to check out her finds often so I’ve added a link to her in the sidebar.
