Easter Colors

We had to make more rainbow extruder canes so spent all morning mixing up and stacking clay.  Fortunately we still had some colors premixed from the last time we made it, otherwise it would have taken all day.  After arranging all the colors in the order I wanted, I noticed they reminded me of  Easter which is this weekend.

The extruder cane is a cross between Bettina Welker's Pixelated Retro Blend Cane and the Rainbow Daisy Pen tutorial by Amber Elledge of Starless Clay.  We used Kato clay and shared the color recipes on a previous blog post here.

We made extra canes this time to experiment with and these flowers were formed by using the teardrop shape extruder die.  I am not sure what to use these for yet but am thinking they would make cute buttons for a little girl's sweater.
