This Letter V alphabet cane is the latest in the series showing how to create polymer clay letter canes (click here for all of the other alphabet canes so far.)
The letter V is a really quick and easy letter cane to make – it just involves two cuts.
Step-by-step instructions: Letter “V” cane
You will need:
- About 30g white clay (i.e. approximately half of a standard-sized block of clay) (examples. of white polymer clay from Amazon)
- Approx. 8g black clay (about an eighth of a standard block)
- Pasta machine (5 things to look for when buying pasta machines for polymer clay)
- Tissue blade or clay slicer (examples on Amazon)
Step 0: Condition the clay.
Step 1 – Roll the black clay into a sheet approx. 1.5mm thick (usually the middle setting of a pasta machine):
Step 2 – Cut off approximately a third of the white block of clay and save it to use later on:
Step 3 – Roll the larger piece of white clay into a cylinder about 25mm (1 inch) in diameter:
Step 4 – Starting from the same point at the centre bottom of the cylinder, slice off two pieces of the white clay to make the “V” shape. Then using the sheet of black clay from Step 1, wrap the two flat sides of the “V” with one layer of black. Trim off any excess black clay:
Step 5 – Reassemble the pieces of the cylinder:
Step 6 – With the white piece of clay from Step 2, roll it through the pasta machine on the thinnest setting. Then wrap thin layers of white around the sides of the cane:
Step 7 – Reduce the cane.
