I just found your group yesterday. I've been making beads for jewelry
and Christmas ornaments with Fimo and Sculpley for a while. I recently
bought a beautiful book - The Art of Polymer Clay by Donna Kato. Armed
with that and fresh inspiration from your posts I attempted my first
Millefiori cane (a Clichy Rose cane) last night. Attempted indeed. It
didn't look anything like the one in the book, though it was ...
Today the is a spot on each of my palms about the size of a quarter
right under my middle finger that is SCREAMING. I guess a five color (2
blended) cane was a bit much to start with :) I understand all the
references to food processors and pasta machines now.
How long does this last? Is it a good idea to work more to toughen up my
hands, or should I wait? Do you use big food processors or the smaller
coffee grinder kind?
Thanks for your assistance,
Kat - who's going for a bit of ice...
