Cookie Cutter Canes

It’s turning cold. Nearly time for snowflakes. As a kid I loved folding and cutting paper to reveal an endless variety of snowflake patterns.

Sandy from Canada is having a grand time doing the same thing in polymer clay with a simple cane pattern she’s developed. She calls it "cookie cutter caning." I found this post on her site in August.

After a class with Marla Frankenburg in September, Sandy started creating her flakes in translucent clay. This almost makes winter look like fun.

    I pretty much HATE winter, but I love those snowflakes! What a smart way to make them!

      Sandy is a very talented lady, especially when it comes to caning. I am fortunate to know her, as we belong to the same polymer clay guild (SOPCG – Southern Ontario Polymer Clay Guild) in Toronto. Sandy shared her technique for these snowflake canes at a recent guild meeting. We had a lot of fun making snowflakes. I much prefer this kind of snowflakes!
      Looking forward to her next class she is facilitating on landscape canes.
      Thanks for sharing your wealth of knowledge with us Sandy.

        thanks for this great tutorial! my first snowflakes are in the oven in the moment. i didn´t exactly have the “right” cookie cutters, but with a little trying it worked for me. one could say that canadian snowflakes are falling in vienna/ austria.
        greetings, martina
