These stained glass canes can be made with any shapes of clay. Just squish the colors together with black in between. If your triangle wedge gets too messed up when you reduce it, just use parts of the triangle to slice and arrange individually instead of trying to make a whole circular cane.
I have a brand new little studio in Tucson, AZ and I've been dreaming up all kinds of amazing new cane patterns and innovative techniques. I love to write up tutorials and make them available in my etsy shop. There are new tutorials and updates being posted right and left. I want those of you who are serious artists to have a chance to be a part of my workshop at a better value. The Cane Builder publication will be mailed to you in the same pdf format as the tutorials. It will include all new tutorials, color palettes, updates and variations. The new tutorials will still be available through my etsy shop, but at a higher price. Also, the tutorials will be available to you a month before they are seen by the general public. There will always be some patterns and designs that won't be available anywhere else. As with all my tutorials, you are welcome to sell anything you make, even copy the designs. However, you may not re-publish the actual pictures or text in any form. I may be able to promote any products made from these tutorials. I'd love it if someone would make any of these items to sell! Use the Paypal link to subscribe at $5 a month. Cancel any time!

Covering eggs with clay is one of my all-time favorite projects!
1) Empty the egg. Poke a hole in the top and bottom with a pin or small knife.
2) Blow out the egg. A warm egg will empty more easily. It also helps to break the egg white and yoke by poking the pin in.
3) Wash or bleach the egg.
4) Pre-bake it it the oven for at about 150 degrees for about 15 minutes to dry it out. If there is any moisture left in the egg it will poke out the clay where it covers the hole. If you plan on carving out that part of the shell, you may not want to cover the hole at all.
