Shouldn't bought canes be prohibited?

I asked the question in the bash planning forum because I want to try and build what is a growing part of pen making (polyclay) the response I got was YES with someone commenting that in the description they should say whether the canes were purchased or not. It was also stated that we don't grow our own trees and make many of the other things we use to make pens out of. But my motive here is to get more people into doing polyclay since we had some nice pens come out of the contest last year when it was combined with basic casting.

But that is what this forum is about, asking questions. I am really not 100% set either way, but to grow the polyclay area, how difficult do we make it. I think most people including you would agree that a purchased cane doesn't guarantee an easy pen, there is a lot more to it.

I personally haven't made a polyclay pen, but I have purchased clay and have watched tons of videos and read many articles so my actual experience is still pretty nill. Hopefully in the near future, medical problems and other time consuming things will allow me to further my knowledge in this area.

So after all that, thanks for the question and lets see some more (hopefully many) people chime in on this question, because I really don't know at this point. I would really like to hear from some of the people that are working with polyclay.

By the way, that is the very question I was hoping for and look forward to more feedback.

The blank is not a cane. It is multiples put together to form a blank. I go to do a cast on blank. I am not going to make the pieces that go into the blank. I am going to arrange them and cast to form a blank. I don't make watch faces or watch gears or tiny screws and so on. The projection of the canes or parts for casting and their presentation is what makes the blank. That is my take on this but I do not do clay pens but do make cast blanks.

This is an old debate that will never be solved and there will never be a referendum made. One can spin it any number of ways to hide the issue, be it watch parts, growing trees, buying glue, buying tools and a slew of other things.

Also the point made is not exclusive to polymer clay canes. That point is the users who votes on the photo is basing he vote based on what they see and that is someone else's work. Rule #3 states made solely by the submitter yet allowances are made to buy works of art from others which can and will influence and sway voters. So there are several issues that should be addressed but in the end it won't be this year and anything that I point out will not be taken good and will only lend to hatred so I will bow out now while I can.

Well, nothing you say on this subject will lead to hatred from me. I bumped this post to put that subject in front of everyone. As for the rules, I wrote them and this particular thread is so that I can get as much information as I can, so that if I or if I get overruled for some reason the rules can be changed before the Bash starts. I do have that power.

As I stated before it was mentioned in the planning area we have before the populace sees the rules, someone mentioned that it should be stated whether you made the canes yourself so that can be taken into consideration when someone votes. I just haven't put that in there yet because I need more info from everyone.

Right now I have 2 people that have given me their comments on the situation. Hopefully before the Bash starts I get a lot more. Last year when this contest was part of the basic casting contest, I believe that we never mentioned canes at all in the rules, so that was left up to personal interpretation.

Another thing to consider is that this contest is open to everyone.

So come on people, these contests are yours and this is your chance to give input on how these contests will be run. Let's hear views from as many people as possible.
