| Striping clay
is a great technique that can be used to make many different projects.
We start out with a candy cane but stripes can be made into many different
- White and
Red modeling clay
- Wax paper
- Small Paint
- Masking tape
- Metallic thread
- Tape a sheet of
wax paper to work table. Break off enough white clay to
make a 1" diameter ball. Roll ball between palms until
it begins to form a long rope. Place rope on waxed paper.
Continue to roll the clay against the table until it is
about 8" long.
- Repeat with red
clay. Place the roped together, side by side. Twist the
ropes by rolling to form one striped rope. Place this
rope on waxed paper and roll until smooth.
- Use a knife to cut
rope to 5" long. Neatly trim both ends. Bend into a cane
- Use brush to coat
surface of cane with decorative glue. Let dry. Turn the
cane over and repeat for back. Let dry.
- Cut a 12" piece
of decorative thread. Tie a loop in the center of the
thread around the top of the candy cane in a double knot.
Bring the threads ends together and tie with an overhand
knot to form a hanging loop.
