This Cobble Stone Cane is a great way to use up leftover cane ends. It creates an interesting pattern, perfect for the background of any polymer clay project.

The one in this tutorial is made using the leftover cane ends of a black and white flower cane. You could do this technique with any cane leftovers to create many different and interesting effects.

You will need the following supplies:

  • Leftover polymer clay cane ends
  • A tissue blade
  • An acrylic roller

Cobble Stone Cane Polymer Clay Leftover Technique Instructions

  • To start you’ll need your cane ends. I am using the leftovers from my Black and White Flower Cane Tutorial, but any cane ends will work.
  • Take each cane end and reduce it into a log shape. Each log should be the same length. Don't worry about distortion or the thickness of the log.
  • If you have any bits and bobs that are too small to mold into a log, squish them all together and mold that into a log instead.
  • Put the logs together in a random pattern.
  • Squish the logs together and roll on your work surface into a cylinder.
  • Square the cane up and reduce.
  • Cut the cane in two and place the two pieces next to one another.
  • Cut in half again and place together. You can put them together randomly, or match them up to look like a kaleidoscope.
  • Reduce this square cane and square it up.
  • Slice the cane up and use as a background.
  • You can also roll some of the slices with your acrylic rod to spread the pattern out a bit, if it is too busy.
And that's all there is to this easy leftover technique. Play around with it and see what you can come up with.
