And here is a shawl pin I made from the cane. I really love this new technique and this shows that when working with polymer clay, there really is no such thing as "scrap clay".

New Scrap Art
Alice Stroppel of Polymer Clay Etc., shared a fun way to use up scrap clay pieces by arranging it into what she calls the Stroppel cane. As soon as I saw it I couldn't wait to give it a try and I just happened to have a pile of cane scraps (lol!) on my table ready to use. It was tempting to use them all but I wanted to see what would happen if I used pieces only from a selected color pile and was happy with the results.
