Polymer Clay Millefiori Flower Cane Tutorial – 3D Kanzashi
Learn the secrets for creating spectacular 3-dimensional polymer clay flower millefiori canes!
Millefiori flower canning is regarded as one of the most broadly used techniques in the polymer clay craft world.
The canes beauty, vivid shades as well as pleasing designs, have that “WOW” factor.
There are endless flower styles as well as plenty of techniques to design flowers, but to my opinion – polymer clay is the ideal material for creating millefiori canes flower designs.
In this handbook we will create imaginary petal designs, that are rather simple to learn and also to complete.
The lesson is a bit in an ocean of options;
Explore patterns, shades, styles & forms and prepare your own set of flower canes in all kinds of designs.
Tsumami Kanzashi are traditional Japanese folded flowers, made from small squares of silk, that are typically worn by women as hair ornaments in traditional hairstyles.
The 3D Kanzashi flower cane is imitating the fabric flower only created in polymer clay millefiori canning.
We will create the 3D Kanzashi flower millefiori cane with a deep, eye catching skinner blended petal and learn both how to assemble the cane elements and how to wrap the flower into a round cane making sure the petals are highlighted correctly inside the flower design.
All petals will be placed around a center cane (in this case a pre-made simple lace cane).
We will discuss the best ways to wrap a cane with its background to minimize distortion and maximize perfection.
