Eakes’ polymer gifts

Julie Eakes offers a nifty poinsettia tutorial on her blog. She collages slices from four or five basic canes onto a graduated background for one variation. Then she shows how the same canes can be used for sculptural or dimensional pieces. What a nice gift to readers.

              Thank you Cynthia. Julie, I have, for years, been trying to come up with something classy (uh, sophisticated) for Christmas. You did it! Beautiful.

                Beautiful Julie, so wonderful to see your work again! Your Obama cane is unbelieveable! I hope our paths cross again in the future.
