List of resources and step-by-step tutorials on creating polymer clay alphabet canes
One day I’ll develop full tutorials with proper instructions, but in the meantime, here is a list of basic polymer clay alphabet cane tutorials:
General resources for creating polymer clay alphabet canes
You will need:

- Black polymer clay (e.g. Sculpey/Premo or Fimo)
- Pasta machine or clay roller
- Tissue blade (a.k.a. polymer clay slicer blade)
Other sites with tutorials on how to create polymer clay alphabet canes:

- Article on Tina Holden’s “Beadcomber” blog showing how to create a monogram cane – but again that is a very specific (although lovely) cane that just incorporates her own initials.
- unikatissima’s website mentions using CityZen Cane’s mosaic “pixels” method, but again doesn’t give detailed instructions on how to create the whole alphabet.
- Brilliant polymer clay artist Iris Mishly has a full tutorial on how to create a “signature name cane”:
…or if you don’t have time to create your own just yet, here are some links to ready-made canes (but do check that they are raw canes, because some canes for sale online are pre-baked):
