A simple way of creating a Stamen Cane using bundled filligrana rods
I had promised to do a stamen tutorial, and I thought since Bill Brach had done one and Melinda has it on her site, I didn't have to do it. BUT Bill does his a different way than I do mine. So I thought I would still post the tutorial showing the bundled filigrana stamen cane. Pictures have been taken with my new digital and they really need some adjusting, but I think you'll get the idea (I hope!). Also note that I am using red rods, which turn black when heated.
