Wow, was I ever surprised by your response to my polymer clay wall art. You’ve encouraged me to add some finishing touches.
Using a drill and a set of forstner bits, I drilled small circles into the hardwood floor. Since the holes are perfect circles, I could have baked the cane slices first and glued them in (my husband’s suggestion).
I preferred to put a dab of liquid polymer in the holes, press the unbaked clay in, trim flush with the floor and then fire on location with a heat gun.
It’s fun to watch people try to pick up the cane slices thinking they’ve fallen off the wall. And I love the idea that it looks like the canes blew up through the floor vent. Thanks to master colorist Lindly Haunani for suggesting that I sprinkle solid orange canes slices among the patterned ones to give your eye a place to rest. That worked. Have a great weekend.
I’ll post a better picture of the finished project this weekend.
