The Stroppel cane is a great polymer clay leftover technique. It gives a really cool rock slab effect that changes each time you do it. The technique was invented by Alice Stroppel.
Alice Stroppel’s original technique was
done using cane ends, but you can use any leftovers you want. The best effect
does seem to come from the cane ends though, so we'll use them for this tutorial.
The cane technique I show in this tutorial is not exactly the same as Alice's. This is my own twist. You can find a link to the original tutorial in the suggested links box below the video.
If you need more information on reducing your canes, take a look at my reducing polymer clay canes tutorial, where I show how to reduce round, square, triangular and hexagonal canes correctly.
