Customer Reviews (Volume-013):

  • Love the colors. I could easily see that palette used in one of Julie’s Picarello’s pieces… just add some gold to it. The picture looks just like one of my cats that I used to have… Teddy was his name. Thanks. ~Lupe
  • Oh cool, thanks for posting these color recipes! ~Kristy
  • I like your color recipes. I do have a problem with picking colors that look good together. I like earthtones and they do not reduce well, and tend to get lost in my designs when reduced. I have been working with polymer clay for quite some years now. Thanks for your help from all of us clayers. ~Lynn
  • How very useful…thank you! I confess to only recently beginning to use my own colour mixes. I just was never brave enough before…your mixes make life even more easy…and less stressful…and now I feel even braver ;) ~Julz
  • Hi Cindy, The texturizing with rubber stamps video was exactly what I was looking for. Great explanations and I loved the results. My favourite lesson so far. Thanks so much. :-). ~Sue
  • Cindy those stamped roll up beads, done with the teardrop blend then antiqued, are gorgeous. Easy to do for most folks too. This would make a wonderful activity for a group of folks you’d like to expose to polymer clay for the first time, like a children’s art class or elderly center craft day. Lot’s of WOW IMPACT based on simple procedures. ~Jocelyn
  • This video illustrates perfectly what I love so much about your tutorials Cindy. And that is how much you really give us each week for our tiny membership fee. Not only did you show how to use rubber stamps for a great look. But you also showed how to make several types of beads AND how to antique them to highlight the effect even more. Thats three great techniques in just one video. There isnt a better value for your money to be found anywhere else on the web. And believe me I have looked. XOXO. ~Jamie
  • 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.  I checked out the Tim Holtz site mentioned somewhere in your site and got new ideas about stenciling and inks! Thanks so much for making these tutorials… they are definitely worth the money! ~Kim
  • Cindy, your rose is stunning! If I ever get that good, you can bet I’ll be selling PC roses on Etsy… and I will give you credit for inspiration and tutoring! It’s always good to have something to aspire to! I’ve sure learned a ton of great stuff from your site. Now that I’m signed up, I’m sure I’ll learn even more. ~Sue
  • OHHHHHHH!!!!! You’ve been batting a thosuand recently. I watch these videos initially during lunch at work. I could see these being made larger into sculptures like capodimonte and even other flowers. My grandmother had a porcelain set of items in her bedroom when I was a child that had the flowers on them, as time went on things got broken and trashed, there is only one piece left, a little vase, and even that has a portion of one of the roses broken off where it fell over. ~Ken
  • Another idea for those gorgeous roses is to make a dresser set… roses attached to combs, hair and make up brushes, hand mirrors, kleenex boxs, attached to the sides of those mirrored perfume trays, and on the lids and on centered on bottle neck chain labels… would be “to die for!” All custom done to match your own bedroom or bathroom colors. Betcha they’d be hot sellers, too. ~Jocelyn
  • Very pretty! I can see them [Variegated Rose Beads] on hair slides or grips or similar. Or how about wine glass charms for parties? ~Silverleaf
  • Very nice [Sculpted Rose Bead] tutorial! Can’t wait for the part 2 :) Thank you, Cindy! ~Zuleykha
  • Hi Cindy I was excited to see the new video of Variegated Rose Bead-Pt 1. I LOVE all of your videos! They are so wonderful! Thanks so much. ~Crystal
  • Dear cindy – I just watched the [Rose Bead] video. Thankyou-thankyou-thankyou!!!! I really needed to see the whole process because I have read instructions on how to make flowers and they were as clear as mud. Your instructions however are so clear and the colour blending is so logical and practical. I can see myself making all sorts of flowers using this technique. I can’t wait for next week. Your online classes are so fantastic and I look forward to each one! Thanking you again. Your grateful student. ~Cara
  • Thanks for sharing the cane [Variegated Rose Bead Video]. I had wondered how to get the colors going in the right direction, that is always where I have the most difficult is getting the colors to be in the right place in the cane so  (another mystery solved thank you !!). so wil make up some rose canes and happily await for next weeks video!!! ~Patricia
  • I loved the video about the rose cane especially the addition of the pearl and translucent to make the ends shine. Your’s is beautiful. I’m so looking forward to the second part of the Rose Bead Tutorial. ~Bonnie
  • Hi Cindy, I really enjoy your videos and the way you explain things [in reference to the 2 part Rose Bead tutorial mini series]. You have inspired me to try different things. I am new to polymer clay so really appreciate that there is some online teaching available as there is very little in New Zealand. I feel more confident thanks to you. Kind regards. ~Jo
  • Hi Cindy, I just watched the [Rose Bead] video and am thoroughly impressed. Your imagination blows me away! Take care, and thanks so much for these videos! ~Linda
  • Your rose videos are fantastic. I have been making roses for a while now. I usually do my graduated roses using a Skinner blend sheet, but am definitely looking forward to trying it using your cane method! Personally I don’t worry about finger prints as I think it gives them the look of the veins and ripples in real roses. I have made roses on stems in pots and vases, as well as making several jewelry pieces. ~Deborah
  • It really does look yummy, Cindy. Looks like I’ll have to try out some Studio by Sculpey clay soon. Thanks for the incredible 2 part [Rose Bead] video – learned a lot! ~Maria
  • I have been trying my hand at different wild flower canes. Not a simple task. Using a wildflower book with up close photos have helped but I think now I have found out why they didn’t have that realistic look to them. By adding translucent clay, which I did not do before does them much more justice. All your post/articles add to my creativity in greater depth——thanks. ~Yvonne
  • Wow … Thank you soooo much guys for all your kind words. Makes me wanna hug each and every one of you. I love Art and I am learning more everyday from each and every one of you too — Cindy I can’t thank you enough for everything u been teaching us. And thanks for your suggestion about the [Rose Bead] cane I will definitely try that:). ~Tania
  • Thank you for all color recipes! I made some roses like yours and I must admit that skinner blend roses are one of the most beautiful things made out of polymer clay. Did you invent them? ~Nevena
  • Here in Philadelphia the Hydrangeas are just starting to bloom, I cut a few off to bring inside for my mother and I was looking at the flower and thinking how much this [Rose Bead] technique could be used to make these blooms, with a little bit of armature to hold the many little flowers that make up one of these blooms (like clay covered wire). ~Ken
  • I was very impressed by the modified skinner roll/plug [used for making the Rose Beads]. Another great new technique by Cindy. It reminds me of a rainbow. We have to come up with a name for this wonderful technique. Cindy, I know you are swamped but hope you can clone yourself and write an article about these techniques for Polymer Cafe. ~Anna
  • Hi Cindy. I would like too thank you for your great site [in reference to rose bead videos]. I am an absolute amateur with polymerclay, but with your help I’m getting better and better. ~Hella
  • Cindy what a nice technique much easier than mine I should add. Thank you so much for doing this [Rose Bead] video for us I really enjoyed and learned a great deal from it. Hugs. ~Tannumoni
  • Thank you Cindy, I loved this tutorial! I want to make a large rose, kinda like the Capodimonte flower in Italy. They would make great gifts and your roses were awesome! If possible, down the road, could you show us how to do the leaves that could surround the flower at the base. Thank you again, you are awesome! ~Theresa
  • Thanks so much Cindy for your kind remarks [about my rose bead photos]. I am still learning and I must say learning a great deal from you :) Thanks so much for answering those questions about the baking instructions and cold water treatment. Here’s another picture of some peach rose jewelry I made. Can’t thank you enough cindy… hugs. ~Tania
  • Cindy, I love all these roses. They are beautiful. And Tania, I love the traditional beautiful red roses you did. I guess you could use all the same technique but keep the petals in closer for buds or just blooming buds. I wish had known how to do these before I bought a bunch of little calla lilies as I could have used this and only did one wrap of one petal for a calla Lilly. ~Laurel
  • All of these roses are absolutely gorgeous. Those suede finish clays make me want to try blue suede roses to match my high heel shoes, LOL! Anyone try a beach rose yet? Along the Atlantic coastline, the shore is lined for miles with these beauties almost forming hedgerows before access to the beach. The pink to deep rose colored flowers, offset by that beautiful orangey-gold center would be perfect done with the Lietz Teardrop Blend and the Lietz Modified Blended Plug methods. Sometimes the flowers are the size of your hand, and the smell from potpourri made from the petals, centers, and rose hips bring you back to the memory of your last walk on the sand. Heading for the Jersey shore for 10 days over the 4th of July weekend. Plan on taking many pics and gathering up a supply to add to the polymer clay, so that hopefully, I get the smell as well as the “look” of my favorite simple rose. ~Jocelyn
  • Another excellent tutorial Cindy! Im so glad you made this one. Roses are my most favorite flower because my Grampa grew them and I remember him showing me how to prune them and care for them. He was so proud of them. Every time I see one I think of him, and I always plant roses wherever I live. So now I can make lots of them and share them with everyone I know. Even in the endless winters we get here, when I miss my flowers being gone so long! And I agree with Ken. I think this method could be adapted to several flowers quite easily. I thought of Peonies right away. (which were my gramma’s favorites) But also maybe Dahlia’s or Magnolia’s. And if you’re really adventurous perhaps Zinnia’s or Marigolds. Certainly there are many flowers this could be applied to. Thank you very much for such a useful and versatile tutorial. XOXO. ~Jamie
  • Hi Cindy, I cannot wait to make some roses! Thanks again for all your wonderful advice Cindy! ~Mary
  • Wow! It really looks like a real pear! Beautiful bead! ~Zuleykha
  • Hi Cindy, When do we eat? Anjou pears are my favorite! Great job!! ~MJ
  • I love fruit jewelry! ~Jennifer
  • Oh, oh, this is so adorable. How fun! We could do apples to as they are similair. ~Laurel
  • I love these beads!!!! Of course, this means you will follow up by showing us how to make a series of fruit on the same scale, right? LOL! ~Jocelyn
  • LOVE IT!!! Thank you Cindy. Another winning video tutorial! Can’t wait to start making pears and apples! ~Maria
  • This looks like fun. The [d’Anjou Pears] look good enough to eat.:-) What a simple, but adorable tutorial.  I can picture a bunch of these charms in different fruits on a bracelet. Very fun. ~Kriss
  • Great tutorial Cindy, many thanks for taking the time and sharing Oh yummy – they do look good. ~Polyanya
  • I have been using embossing powders in poly clay for a while, and I prefer the fine powder as opposed to the course blends. I really love the look in a translucent clay as the powder almost has a suspended look, great for duplicating a stone look such as granite, marble, etc. Thanks for the [Pear Bead] tutorial Cindy, as usual, you have sparked the creativity bug in me again, been a while since I have worked with my clay. This will certainly get me back to making some beads. ~Rob
  • Oh Cindy, I feel as if I have been given a gift in discovering this site. I have been working with polymer clay for some time and was constantly trolling the web for information that would enhance my learning. Granted, there are some I found useful but finding yours resulted in a shift in how I do so many things. For me, though, in addition to the amazing techinques you teach us, it’s how you teach that has made the difference. I love that I can actually sit in front of the computer and rewind the video as many times as I need to until I learn a particular step.  I love that I can watch how you hold your hands to form a particular shape or about how much embossing powder to dump on translucent clay to create a d’anjou pear (thanks to you, mine turned out so cute I can’t stand it). Bottom line—I have never found a resource like this. (I just reread this and fear it might be a bit sappy but I am submitting it anyway with the hope that you will be able to glean from it my joy and appreciation.) Gotta go now – I’m sitting here with a blend of Studio Sculpy and need to rerun the rose cane video, part 2. ~Elizabeth
  • I don’t think it is sappy. I feel the same way and it is hard to express deep appreciation. I agree with you 200%. ~Anna
  • I’m the brand new member Cindy had the kindness to quote. And I couldn’t resist to subscribe starting with the volume 013, because those little Anjou pears from last week looked so perfect that convinced me it was really the time to subscribe. The four videos I’ve watched until now are simply so good. You are teaching a beginner how to make something new and also teaching an intermediate how to make something right. And you are giving everyone who’s watching one of your videos the desire to try that project. I’m a little delirious right now, you’d be too if you were a member at the library knowing the deep crackle faux raku secrets are coming your way in a couple of weeks! Cindy, thank you so much for sharing this innovation with us! ~Squash
  • Boy, what a girl can do with a little help from her friends. With all of your wonderful suggestions I ran up to my craft room and unstrung my original pearlet creation. I had tried to make this organic looking thingy by stringing them with some sort of ugly (but organic looking) wooden beads. In my head combining food with ugly (but organic looking) beads made perfect sense even with a hideous outcome. (See why I describe myself as jewelry design challenged?) Anyway, my little [Pear] beads are all now part of a lovely set. The big one is alone on a piece of satin cord which I had in my craft stash, two are now earrings and one is dangling on a bracelet. Believe it or not I even had one more which I did not include in the photo for the suggested key chain. I love it!!! Thanks to all of you for taking the time to help me and for your kind words. ~Elizabeth
  • I am so thankful that four years ago I came across a picture of your Anjou Pear Bead… that is what lured me in to the craft! ~Laura-R
  • I am so excited to have found your site. The demos are clear and easy to understand and I have already made my first rose with your guidance and it actually looks like a rose. Thank you to both of you. ~Jennifer-R
