Another Color Variation of the Extruded Swirl Cane

Here is the other color combo I did with the Extruded Swirl Cane Tutorial I shared with you last week.  I did this one in the Pantone Spring 2010 colors of Tomato Puree, Fusion Coral and Pink Champagne and used the same three extruder dies as the last cane experiment.


This color combo is a little more subtle and makes a nice soft blend.  Here are some pieces I made with the above canes.  I only did a small cane for this one as an experiment but I still managed to make a few things with it.  I decided to put some cane slices on a black background to really make the colors pop a little more and added some bling with some rhinestones.


It was fun experimenting with this technique and I'm starting to see more possibilities with it that I might try out later.

Thank-you and you are so welcome.

Nicole -- that does look like coral over lava rock -- never thought of that until you mentioned it!

Thank you so much for sharing. I would like to know where you got the big square that you use. I have 2 Makin's sets and a Walnut Hollow set and no big square.

Hi Linda, There is the regular set of dies that come with the Makins Extruder and there are 2 more sets you can purchase extra. I have the same as set "A" you can see on this link:
