Red flower cane beads
A flower cane made from the magenta and orange Fimo polymer clay from this set. The center is made of scraps from that checkered cane. First, I made some simple flat round beads by cutting slices from the reduced cane.
I then reduced the cane further, and put thin slices on a white clay sphere, made from half a Fimo strip. Twelve 1 cm slices fit covered the sphere nicely, in a dodecahedral formation.
Quarter-strip spheres were covered by six slices (cubic formation) and half-strip cylinders carried two rows of four slices. Leftover flower canes I stacked and rolled until they were tiny, wrapped them in white and cut into small flat beads.
