Exploring Canework in Polymer Clay: Color, Pattern, Surface Design gives jewelry makers in-depth instruction in polymer clay cane making. Beginning with polymer clay basics and color theory for pleasing combinations in canework, the book also provides detailed lessons in constructing, reducing, and repeating patterns in canes as well as how to use canes to create repeating patterns for larger surface design. The book teaches eight unique cane styles, and a variety of ways to incorporate cane patterns into sophisticated finished jewelry.
