Slice ’em Thick

lime-slices.jpgThere are times when you will not want to make your cane slices ultra thin…

  • As a decorative element that adds dimension to your composition
  • When cutting beads from cane slices
  • and when you are making buttons

In these cases you will need to alter your cutting strategy

  • Using a bead marking tool or a ruler mark the top off your cane with a blade to indicate the thickness you want
  • STAND UP this will engage your binocular vision and allow you to see “down” the cane to cut straight
  • Using the forward drawing motion cut into your cane @ 1/4″
  • Switch to two hands on the blade and continue slicing will pulling outwards on both sides of the blade

As with making slices thin, practice on a “blank” piece of clay first.
