Tomato Cane by margemagtoto Tomato Cane by margemagtoto
I made this tomato cane using my own technique! Yay! Polymer clay :) It took me 3 tries before I got this one :) Still needs improvement especially with the seeds.

I'm quite happy with the color of this one. my first cane turned out to be crimson red on the outside then everything inside the tomato slice was just horrible!

Tip: Always use reference pictures :) It really helps a lot!

Why is my mouth watering at this? I don't even like tomatoes! The colors are very nice!

Really good for your first tomato cane! I haven't tried making a cane yet, it seems hard, and I'm scared to mess it up. XD

Thank you so much! It's actually my second, the first one I made is too horrible to post. LOL. I learned a lot about making the colors right from the first one I made.

It's hard at first, but keep practicing and I know you'll get it right as well :)

Thanks for the comment. I thought it looked weird with the yellow too. they were supposed to look like seeds but ended up looking like weird stripes D: I think I'll try a more translucent color next time. Thank you! :)
