Orange Cane Experiences by FunkadelicPsychoFish Orange Cane Experiences by FunkadelicPsychoFish
Hi!

Sorry for the lateness of this...i've been very busy

So this is not really a tutorial on HOW to do your canes...there are plenty of them on the internet
This is for those who get crumbly canes when they try to slice canes that baked only for 5 minutes in the oven...

I had that same problem with my canes but now i know how to solve it and since sooooo many people have this same problem (i've found toons of people commenting on blogs and youtube videos and no one could give them a straight answer :()
This was my way of solving the problem and i hope this works for the most of you...if not...just try different baking times (1 minute, 2 minutes, 5 minutes, 7 minutes, 10 minutes...you get the point) and keep track on how your cane reacted in those different tests by taking a photo or by recording a video

Just try out as much possibilities as you can and in case of any doubth just ask around (i did that to some polymer clay artists i know had done some baked clay canes)

Oh...and yes this does go the similar way for lemons, limes, grapefruits and other citrus fruits :D

As said in the tutorial here it goes:

Please let me know:
-if you have any doubts
-if you use this tutorial and how your experience went

IMPORTANT!!!
I will be adding here on the description questions that may come up so you can check if your question is here or not

1) Isn't fimo supposed to be baked for 25-30 minutes?
A: well it really depends on the tickness but for normal sized canes (around 0,5 cm) 15 minutes is usually the best time (in my opinion)

2) Why don't you cut them before baking?
A:Mainly because they get distorted when cut raw. But also i only bake the canes i only use from time to time...canes that i use right away usually aren't baked.
Oh. and also because of the storage options:
-Baked canes i cam store in a box all together...
-Raw canes i have to store them in large containers where they have a lot of space and where they don't get squished.
Raw canes also shouldn't be kept for long times since they get crumbly as the raw clay ages


Feel free to download this pseudo-tutorial...just give me credit for it...it's all i ask

Oh! and if you find any spealling mistakes...just tell me :$ i'm out of practise in english writting...

Thank you and i hope you all like it!!!

Thank you so much for this! It really helped me out. I made my first ever cane today and it probably would have been a disaster if I hadn't seen this! I'm very happy with the results, I'm going to post them up here soon ^^ thanks!

You're welcome :heart: ^^ I'm glad it helped! i had my fair share of cane disasters...and not because of the cane having a bad design, but because of the baking part D:
