Customer Reviews…

  • I love how you take inspiration for color palettes from your environment! It’s so much more fun than just looking at color swatches.  ~Karen
  • Cindy, Thanks SO MUCH for ALL of your tutorials, color cards, tips, ideas and feedback to other members! I have learned so much in the past few months and have you to thank! Continued success! I’ll be a member for a very long time! I’m off to make some rocks! ~Cheryl
  • Love the look of the Faux Pebbles and no sanding, that’s my style! ~Lindsay
  • What a cool idea! [Reference to Faux Pebble Beads]. I will be making these for sure. ~Klaykisses
  • How fun! and I really like the lacing through the bead rock idea – very clever and effective. ~Maria
  • Hi Cindy, well once again you have out done yourself with the tutorial. I love the faux pebbles. Have wondered what the recipe was so was glad you featured this here. Thanks again. ~Adrienne
  • I’ve been wanting to make stone beads and now I’ll have the info to do it. I don’t have any sand, but I can use a little dirt or spices. I was wondering how it would be to mix a little kosher salt in to make craters. The salt would disappear either in baking or from washing after baking and there would be craters in the bead. ~Freda
  • My grandson last night thrilled me by asking if he could make jewelry. He and his sister are coming today for a play day. So as usual your timing is perfect with this [Faux Stone] topic. I am so gifted on this special day to have you for inspiration and guidance. Thank you Cindy. ~Illaya
  • That is beautiful…and I have all the stuff I need to proceed [Reference to Alcohol Ink and Crackled Metal Leaf Tutorial]. What will I do with it when completed??? don’t know, but will find a way to incorporate into my work…. maybe a base for my figures…… you are a genius. ~Bonnie
  • I love it! It’s exactly the kind of thing I like. I’ve been using foil a lot myself this week, creating a similar kind of effect by layering coloured translucent clay over cracked foil on black or white. Yours is better. You’ve inspired me to order some alcohol inks  (since I had to order clay anyway I figured what the heck). Expensive, but hopefully I’ll use them lots and make pretty things. ~Silverleaf
  • What a great idea for rolling extra-thin sheets of translucent clay [See Crackle Leaf Video]! I’ve seen something similar before, but the folder is a really great addition to the technique. I’ll definitely try that next time. ~Sue
  • Wow! What a fab technique video this week [Reference to Alcohol Ink on Metal Leaf tutorial]! I am another one who really looks forward to the friday video, and as usual I am amazed by all the different things you can do with polymer clay. Thanks Cindy, and keep up the good work:) ~Rachel
  • How did you know I had alcohol inks on my list to buy today? Now I’m going to wait and try some of your ideas before I give in. Thanks again Cindy. You are always a fount of ideas and suggestions! ~Aims
  • Ok, you finally got me with this one. I am becoming a member. You almost had me with the Rock Tumbler but thought I might be able to figure it out on my own (I haven’t) and since lately I have been into transfers, I have got to see/learn this technique [Reference to translucent layer vver colored metal leaf]. I guess it’s about time I didn’t have to make mistakes and let you do it. LOL. I will ALWAYS make mistakes but maybe a tiny bit less now. Thanks for your help Cindy. ~Laurel
  • That was a great video! Adding translucent clay to protect while sanding is a great idea. Thanks very much. ~Cheryl
  • I see says the blind man….thanks, one of my issues was getting the translucent thin enough, thanks for showing this. I have some very ornate cigar bands, and this is perfect for showing detail and encasing in poly clay. Thanks again Cindy, the price of the membership is saved in the mistakes I will no longer make! ~Rob
  • Just finished watching this video for the third time. I am still learning new things! Watching Cindy work reminds me of watching the old black and white Julia Childs’ French Cooking TV series from PBS/Boston. With Julia and Cindy, they show the good, the bad, and the ugly, as it happens live. It just comforts me so much to watch experts have similar problems to mine, and to watch them work it out to a beautiful finish. You could have edited the video to leave out some of the metal foil sticking to the rollers or how difficult the transparent clay was to remove from the paper backing. But by leaving it in, it adds so much more. It gives me confidence. You have beautiful hands Cindy, and I love the way you pronounce “clay.” LOL! ~Jocelyn
  • I LOVE the hammered copper! I actually have some of the wire at home that I ran across in a recent clean-up of my late husband’s workshop! I can wait to see how to do this – up close and personal – in this week’s video. Got family reunion Saturday but I know what I’ll be doing Sunday afternoon!!! ~Arlene
  • I got interested in working with copper because of the price of working with silver. Recently I bought 3 different gauges of silver from a supplier in Calgary. When they took it out of a vault! – I shuddered at what my bill was going to be. Working with copper will be so much more affordable and I really like the looks of it. ~Aims
  • Thank you- I have always thought it would be too difficult to  achieve so I have avoided doing wire work. You have made it look achievable and I know that I will be making these clasps for my jewellery now. Financially this is an amazing bonus- thank you again. ~Cara
  • I’m a newbie to polymer clay, I’ve been a beader for a couple of years – taken several wire/beading classes… I love this copper wire technique! It is SO much fun getting the email each week… it’s like opening a present EVERY WEEK! Thank you Cindy for sharing your creativity in such an easy to understand manner! ~Linda
  • Great Video! Didn’t think I could ever do anything with wire and now you have made it look so easy that I am excited to try it! Thanks for the informative and very different video. Was most interesting. ~Charlene
  • I’ve seen something similar in the craft stores and thought it was a great idea [reference to hammered copper], but didn’t even think of making them myself. ~Sue
  • LOL!! This looks like fun! Back to storage for the tool collection. My Dad inherited his godmother’s home contents, and when I divorced, he set me up with an excellent tool collection…haven’t even explored it all yet but I recognize most of them in the video. Blessings to Uncle Mart! And you Cindy! ~Jocelyn
  • Ok Cindy, fess up! Where is the hidden camera? How did you know I just dug out all my wire? I needed it for a special birthday present, and I even bought a new set of pliers at Michaels! (while I was taking advantage of the excellent Premo sale this week). You always seem to know what I’m thinking, or about to work on. Its uncanny! Thanks for the neat patina trick for copper. I know the one about aging silver and brass with a hard boiled egg. But I could never figure out how to age copper other than hanging it outside for a while. This will save me a ton of time! I just love copper. It’s my favorite metal after silver. I don’t have the turning green issue like some thankfully. But any I make to sell, I coat with satin Varithane. So far I’ve had no complaints. It seems to stand up to being worn quite well. But I use the spar varnish made for boat hulls. It takes anything you can throw at it! I only use the spar varnish on the metal bits because they get so much wear rubbing and unclasping etc. But I don’t think it would be compatible with polymer clay. On that I use the regular indoor Varithane type. XOXO ~Jamie
  • You never stop amazing me! I just watched the Hammered Copper Findings. I was making a necklace last night and I did not have the right findings. So, I was going to use what I had but I was not happy with that. I was going to go to the craft store to get some but now, thanks to you, I will be at the hardware store instead. Thanks so much Cindy. Oh, I cannot say enough nice things about you so this will have to cover it all: Cindy, you so ROCK! ~KlayKisses
  • I loved this video and went running out to the hardware store immediately to get some 14 gauge copper wiring. Thanks so much for the article on how to strip wire without a wire stripper. Sounds pretty easy. And, believe me, I appreciate your cost-cutting tips. I agree that the supplies one needs for polymer clay projects probably cost a lot less than supplies for other crafts. My problem is that your videos are so great that I want to start on the latest technique right away, and I get frustrated if I can’t find locate what I need as soon as I would like. Thanks for everything. ~Sherry
  • Hi Cindy, I read all the messages you send and I’m sure you get tired of hearing this over and over, but I can’t express how much I like getting my e-mail saying that another one of your videos is ready for viewing. I received the one about making the clasps, and I thought “no-no-no I want you to teach me polymer clay, not metal work”… but as usual, I watched it and it contained extra information I had not thought of and hadn’t learned in the class I took. I thought the same about the texture video… “I don’t use those and don’t like them” but after watching, I got all these other ideas that I could do. Thanks so much for making these tutorials… they are definitely worth the money! ~Kim

  • So so Lovely, Arlene [her pics are posted at the 2009-07-18 Blog Spotlight Feature]. Thanks for sharing. My hammered copper wire attempts have to date been only marginally successful. After seeing this I’m gonna fire up the tutorial and try again until I get it. Congratulations on this inspirational piece. Cindy, you must be so proud when you see your lessons applied so beautifully. ~Elizabeth
  • Been dying to see this done, mine are far from “ghost-like” which means I have a lot to learn! ~Jocelyn
  • I like it – reminds me a little of some of Donna Kato’s work [Reference to Ghost Cane Tutorial]. ~Silverleaf
  • Cindy, I am super interested in your ghost canes!!!  What a cool thing!!!  I LOVE your ghost cane beads here and on your “Polymer Clay Rose Beads and Ghost Cane Jewelry” page.  I am quite intrigued! As always, you’ve got my creative mind reeling!!! :) Hugs to you. ~CindyE
