Well My hubby and I have completed supercane. I weighed it after almost
killing myself. The scales I have weigh a qt empty mason jar with lid and
ring at 1#1oz-that's for reference and teh final baby weighs----do I hear
the drum roll-almost 4 #. We used an equivalent of 5 bricks of poly
clay-You know the ones I mean. although there were many colors or actually
shades of various colors. It's measurements are 5.5 incehes across and a
little over 3 inches high.
I know this is going to give me a lot of bead of various sizes so I'll let
any one who wants to know what I finally get--just ask.
Since my true love is things with scents followed a close second by poly
clay. I am hping to do a series on flowers and this was an IRIS. The
background is a mixture of translucents and tones and if it ends up reduced
the same as it looks in the rough it is going to be spectacular. I am
hoping to utilize teh telephone wire and reinforce edges to make some
movable jewelry-not just pendants and dangles but things that open and
I decided the colors and my husband who has never done a cane did all the
work-he even mixed the colors and when he thought we didn't have enough
would walk to the store-don't laugh its 5 miles away and he doesn't drive
and is agoraphobic to boot so you know it was an effort.
Now everyone cross your fingers for me and hope that I can reduce this baby
and get everything done for the weekend deadline, casue I am also
macrameing one for his deadline. everything in the Baker house is
