Making A Tigercane Egg
I would like to thank Norajean
for teaching me the zebra, tiger
and leopard skin canes. Her patterns are as inspirational as they are deceptively
simple. With her consent, I will show how to make a tiger cane in this lesson.
This lesson covers making three different small tiger canes then covering and
sanding an egg.
clay brand, you can even mix brands (horror!! but yes - you can!)
(56.7gr) brown or gold metallic clay
(113.5gr) white or pearl white clay
(28.35gr) black clay - pearlized or not
machine (optional, but very helpful)
tool - tissue blade is the most effective
- Optional - to trim excess clay
- Optional - for piercing eggshells
with needles to blow the egg
polymer clay or diluent (if you don't have liquid clay, diluent is preferred
but petroleum jelly or mineral oil will suffice)
for baking - preheated to 270°F
sounds: Beads, rice, rocks, whatever strikes your fancy that will
make noise. Jingle bells don't work. Round items will give a softer sound
than those with corners and jagged edges.
- Optional - (We will be making this with the typing paper.)
hand roller (like four inches of one inch PVC pipe, a thick dowel, a small
jar with straight sides. Just so long as it fits comfy into one hand.)
& 600 grit wet/dry sandpaper
scrap or whatever you're wearing for buffing
two skinner blends from gold to white
and compact blends
and compact white
