A flat oval polymer face with a circle cut out gets her started on completely silly faces. A few dots and strings of clay turn into crazily raised eyebrows, a moustache or a glob of hair. A slice of any old cane will work for eyes.
Don’t forget teeth or a tongue and everybody gets a pair of jump ring earrings. Perfect Halloween favors.
Start from scrap
As long as we’re going for easy and effective art, check out Debbie Crothers’ scrappy cane tutorial.
I learned a similar version from Carol Blackburn who tames the tutorial and turns the results into tidy stripes and precise geometrics. Any way you handle this tute, it’s a great one to have at your disposal.
