We have been asked many times "What are nail art canes?", "What are they made of?" and "How do you make them?". This page attempts to answer those 3 questions and give you an insight into what we do.
Finished nail art canes look a little like small sticks of rock. The design you can see at the end runs through the whole length of the cane.
The designs are created by splitting the desired finished pattern down into the component parts.
Each of the components are then made by layering many colours of clay, then taking these and stacking them gradually building up the design.
All of the finished components are finally stacked together - sometimes up to 300! - to create the finished unbaked cane which can be 20cm or more wide.
The cane is then carefully stretched and reduced in size to the required diameter. This is where the magic happens!
As you reduce the cane in diameter the pattern inside also reduces, keeping its shape and detail. Canes can be reduced to pretty much any size you want.
The cane is then baked to cure the clay and when the cane is sliced in cross-section, the detailed pattern inside is revealed.
Often once a design is complete it is wrapped in a translucent clay which appears white until it is baked. This layer helps maintain the designs shape whilst being reduced and becomes invisible when applied to the nail.
To slice the finished, baked cane, use a single edged razor blade and carefully press down on the cane at the point you wish to cut. You may warm the canes in your hand prior to cutting tomake the canes a little softer resulting in the cutting process being slightly easier. Single Edged Razor For Cutting Nail Art Canes
