How do you make a polymer clay tiger stripe cane?

I want to sculpt a tiger in polymer clay but I do not know how to make the  cane for the skin.  I don't want to paint on the stripes because I want it to look as natural as possible.

Thanks. I like the look I just don't think the colors are authentic so maybe if I play with the colors a little.

A good way is to use two different colors of clay. Roll out long worms in the thickness you want the stripes to be, then twist them together. After twisting, you can coil the result into a tight helix.
