ROCKS AND MINERALS A-SERIES COLOR PALETTE

  • Cindy, These rocks and minerals color recipes are awesome. The background image makes me want to go there. In fact I’d love to track down all the beautiful scenes in Doug’s truly professional photos. Way to go, Doug and Cindy. March will be a sensuous month. Thank you both! ~Joyce-M
  • I absolutely love these Rock and Mineral colors! ~Lisa-W
  • These colors are gorgeous, Cindy. How I love rock hunting … and now I’ll be able to rock hunt right in my Premo bin! ~Carolyn-F
  • I absolutely love these colors. “Lichen” is especially gorgeous to me, (I love greens.) I’ll have to start thinking about what I want to use this lovely palette for. ~Phaedrakat
  • I like this color palette Cindy, I’ve always loved rocks, especially lichen-covered ones. ~Silverleaf
  • The colours for the Vol-022 rocks palette are stunning. ~Mary-U
  • BAM!!!!!! – Another grand slam for Cindy. This lineup is out of the ballpark with ideas just like all the months before. I love all 4 ideas and I couldn’t pick out a favorite if I had to. Thank you and your hubby Cindy for the willingness to give so very much to your very Blessed students. For me that is eagerly Blessed student. Another Friday putting me on pins and needles waiting for it to get here… Love and Uuuuugggggs glowing in the dark, ~Peggy-B

GLOWING JELLY ROLL CANE

  • This week’s Glowing Jelly Roll Cane tut is wonderful. I am excited to get started. ~Joyce-M
  • I’ve had my Glow-In-The-Dark Clay for such a long time. Why didn’t I figure out such a cool thing to do with it? I’m gonna make some cool Psychedelic Jellyroll Canes, or PsycheJellys, and have fun with them! It’s simple to make, but looks AMAZ-ing. I love how it looks with the pearl clay, too. Excellent video, Cindy! ~Phaedrakat
  • Molte grazie, molto interessante come sempre…. [Many thanks, very interesting as always …. Glow in the dark canes] ~Pamagela
  • Cindy, that was great, love the idea about the inks to make the skinner blend and adding the Glow In the Dark to the black clay. Wish I had seen this before I made those 200 buttons. Once again, you out did yourself and it’s 5 in the morning here and I’m looking for my Glow in the Dark clay. LOL Thank you, I love Friday because of you. ~Bonnie-K
  • Well I did not think I would be interested in the Glow in the Dark Cane, but found it sensational. Thank you Cindy for another Friday worth watching. ~Elizabeth-K
  • OMG! I think this is one of my favorite tuts! I have alot of alcohol inks which I will try with this glow in the dark cane … I was so drawn to the translucent colors, just beautiful! … Thank you for making my Friday awesome! YOU DA BEST!! ~Theresa-N
  • Thanks Cindy! This is an AWESOME idea that’s really kicked my imagination into overdrive. The spiral jelly roll cane is pretty cool – and I did have to pop into a dark room a few times to see mine glowing! LOL – but I’d LOVE to try this general idea of alcohol-inked glow-in-the-dark skinner blends on Donna Kato-style squiggly beads and pods. I was going to try to catch up on chores this weekend, but I’ll probably be playing with clay instead! ;D ~Sue-F
  • Cindy’s wonderful videos arrive here in Australia on Friday evenings about seven (AEDT) and I often rush from the dinner table to have a peek because, well, who can wait? The GITD jellyroll promises such a lot of fun and with six young granddaughters there’ll be no shortage of (fairly non-critical of Granny’s beginner skills) ‘customers’. I live in Port Stephens, at Nelson Bay, but Newcastle and Sydney are within reach. I’m so happy to have found Cindy’s school and the claying community. Cheers, ~Mary-U
  • Hi Mary, so nice to see another Aussie face here so to speak. Yes my Cindy Videos arrive Friday night so I am always excited to come and look no matter what the time. This GITD one is gorgeous I can only get Sculpey here in Mackay QLD, but send away for most of my stuff. I can sometimes get supplies when I go to Brisbane, but don’t know anything about your area or Sydney or Newcastle. Yes I am so taken with Cindy’s site and Videos, it certainly has enhanced my work, even tho I’d had about 5yrs or so before I landed here. Love to all. ~Elizabeth-K
  • Oh Cindy just finished the tute  an enjoyed every minute of it. Once again I am in a fix and not sure how soon I will be able to glow in style. Thought I was going to be able to start working in my studio this week, now I have a horrible cold that I think might be something much worse than a cold. I don’t have much of an immune system at all. So I will just have to wait it out a couple of more days and pray it gets much better soon. But for the tute this is up the in my top 3. So simple and unique. I am really looking forward to making some beads with this technique. Wooooo hooooooooo!!!! extra Uuuuuuuuuuuuuuggggggggggggggggggs for you today Cindy. ~Peggy-B
  • Thanks Cindy! This rainbow jelly roll can project is certainly the one for me… it is SO me!!!!! ~MrsRainbow
  • I cant wait to make something with this cane! I’m also thinking of making a glow in the dark flower cane, to match my jellyroll cane. ~Cindy-G
  • WOW!!!  I really like caning and this is probably the coolest way I have seen to make a skinner type blend… and now a “glow-in-the-dark” one without having to mix up a bunch of clay!! Cindy, my being new to your lessons, I must tell you… your email weekly has become something I very much look forward to!!! Thank you for the fun and the learning! ~Adelle-H
  • I just made a glow in the dark brain cane! Looks really cool too! :) ~Cindy-G
  • Oooo, I used the scrap from cutting the ends off my cane to make gitd Jupiter beads. They look sooo cool. I love this technique! Clay On, ~Lisa-W
  • @Cindy-G: Cool! I checked out your GITD brain cane – it’s so awesome! I like how you showed it glowing in darkness, as well. I couldn’t read your blog (no French,) but I could tell pretty much what you were showing. Your pieces are all very beautiful. They look really very nice and well-finished. @Lisa-W: I wish I could see your Jupiter Beads, as well … I love how everyone jumped right on this technique and took off. I can’t wait to get started. I’m so far behind now, though! Have fun, you guys! ~Phaedrakat
  • I showed my GITD beads to my girlfriend and she wants me to make some GITD pulls for her old fashioned lights in her house… They’ll probably be rainbow colors, because she likes rainbow stuff. Hmmm, now, what shapes should I make them in? Oh and Cindy, way cool pendant..! I love the way you used the copper wire to accent the bead. ~Lisa-W
  • I just bought this tut and watched it and I loved it, brought me back to my o’le hippie day’s lol… I really enjoyed the inks, (wanted to know all about them) and I’ve always been drawn to the “Glow in the dark” it’s just so cool! ~Joy-D

POLYMER CLAY BUTTONS

  • Cindy, these buttons are beautiful and I can’t wait to add this skill to my world of possibilities. Thank you so much for continuing to help us grow creatively. ~Elizabeth-S
  • I love these buttons! I have to admit, I wasn’t a firm YES on having a tut for these. I thought they’d be too easy – “cut a shape, poke a couple of holes, done.” But after reading your article, and seeing the preview video, I realize that there’s more to it. You’re providing important know-how so we can create a sturdy, durable product. I’m really excited about this video now – great job on making all these cute examples, too, including the adorable hearts at the top! And the presentation cards are the icing. ~Phaedrakat
  • I love, love, love the cards you display your buttons on. I’m always looking for easy, attractive ways to present my work. I don’t sell much as I don’t like to make multiples, but when I do sell something, I always want to present it well and usually with a little something extra. I’m looking forward to making some buttons – I especially like the striped ones, so guess I need to make some canes. ~Rose-M
  • I have been making some felt brooches for people recently decorated with tiny shop bought buttons. I am already dreaming of the possibilities of making my own far more interesting buttons. ~Cara-H
  • Oh, I’m feeling like Lucy in the chocolate factory – how’s that for an old TV reference! I want to do everything Cindy teaches us and the ideas of all the things I want to make are jumping around in my head. I can’t keep up!!! I have never been so creative before in my life and I thank Cindy for all that inspiration. I have three grandnieces under the age of 6 and I think it would be very cute to make buttons to decorate matching T-shirts for them. I wish I had known how to make clay buttons when I used to sew my own clothes. @Cindy – I was asked to do a presentation for my local Arts Guild next week. They thought I would do another painting presentation, but I decided to do my presentation on polymer clay basics instead. You’ve given me confidence to take this on. ~Linda-K
  • Cindy, you make every single technique look so exciting and such fun and I know this will give me the nudge that I needed to go ahead and make some buttons. My friend, amongst others, will be delighted! ~Susan-B
  • I am so excited for this one. More and more as my mind twirls. I have some dinosaur molds that will make awesome buttons for my youngest grandson and girls well circles, flowers, hearts you know what I mean. I am just like I always am in the middle of the week, on pins and needles. Thank you again Cindy for another Shazam!!!!!!!!!!! I’m headed out to my studio for some organizing and if up to it later I am going to work with some clay!!! Thank you Lord. I am so very blessed to be a part of this wonderful adventure we all take with Cindy and Doug every Friday. Thank you both for this hands on continuous road trip. It is the perfect everyday vacation all PC’ers need. Uuuuugggggggggs (the painless hug) to all. ~Peggy-B
  • Hi Cindy and all, I  love the button tut. Thanks for the inspiring ideas you bring us Cindy. Great idea to keep them on a card as easier to find that way or to sell. I must make some as pressies for my patchworking friends, as I can see how they would love them, and what a great thing not having to buy buttons again. I don’t really use many buttons but I am going to find uses for them just for the fun of it. ~Elizabeth-K
  • In the past, I’ve used buttons as closures for my bead-woven (stitched) bracelets. I’ve spent too much money on “vintage” buttons at bead stores, when I could have made much more interesting ones with polymer clay! I’ve also made entire bracelets out of buttons, now I can rethink those techniques using PC buttons. ~Phaedrakat
  • This tut is great. I made 200 buttons in February for our clay guilds swap and I made some glow in the dark butterflies and put them on some pieces that I used a texture sheet on. I didn’t think I would ever want to make more buttons after that but now Cindy’s got me thinking about buttons again. ~Bonnie-K
  • Another wonderful tut!! Cindy, I love how you continuously reinvent and expand on the uses for this wonderful medium. I have said it before, but I am growing artistically more than I could have previously imagined and I thank you so much for that. What a fun day I am about to have making polymer clay buttons. ~Elizabeth-S
  • Thank you Cindy and Doug. The buttons are made even more special by sewing them on the cards. I would love some further discussion about displaying your wares tastefully for a sale. (I know you did talk about this before). I have some ideas, but somehow in the rush to get the items finished, I neglect the presentation portion of it – I’m just so glad to get the pieces done on time! :) Too late for me this weekend but would be nice for next time. ~Maria-C
  • Hi Cindy, Love, Love, Love the this button making video. Look so forward to Fridays when your new videos come out. Keep them coming. ~Maria-S
  • I love the button tut, Cindy. I make knitted purses out of batik cotton, and I usually buy very large buttons as closures. How fun to be able to make any size I need and to coordinate them with the purse. Thanks for sharing your talents. ~Loretta-C
  • AWESOME TUTE – I can not wait to make some buttons. All of my younger grandchildren love making T-shirts with paint stamps. Some homemade PC buttons are just what they need to top them off. Next time kids are over I think we will be making buttons to put on our shirts. Thank you Cindy you are fantastic and Doug too!! Uuuuuggggggs to all, ~Peggy-B
  • This is a wonderfully simple tut which is choc-a-bloc full of helpful hints. The buttons look great on your presentation cards! I have always held the drill bits in my fingers or with a pair of pliers and liked the look of your drill-bit holder. Many thanks once again.I LOVE Fridays even more than I used to!! ~Suan-B
  • I think this is my favorite video – nice and simple but full of possibilities for making polymer clay buttons. ~Rose-M
  • Cindy: Great button tut with some excellent tips! I might just have to start sewing again! ~Linda-K
  • Once again, Cindy, I started yapping before I complimented you on your extremely wonderful video! Besides enjoying your perfect teaching method, I love all the little buttons you’ve made, too. So very cute & creative. Anyway, I now have ideas rolling around my head, not only for jewelry, but also for home items like the Joan D’s pillows. I’m going to spruce up my Mom’s bedroom & kitchen. Her ‘plain’ curtains would benefit from some pretty tie-backs using some slightly bigger/thicker PC buttons. I’ve got the perfect idea for her decor. I’ll have to send some pictures when I’ve finished. Her kitchen needs hangable dish towels (from oven door, fridge door, drawer pull, etc.; I’m going to sew fabric to the tops of a few of them, in a fold-over shape with a you-know-what kind of button. My mom will be so happy, she hates to decorate, but loves when someone surprises her with decorative items. I’ve got even more items in mind, as well. Dang it, Cindy! I’ve had my sewing machine safely packed away for years so that I would not be called upon to make every Halloween costume or ‘special blouse’ repair. Right before I packed it away (before my surgery,) I taught my sister to sew, & got her a new sewing machine. She’s been the family seamstress since I’ve been down. But now, I feel compelled to dig mine out, so I can make these decorative items. Along with the beautiful PC buttons you taught us to make, of course. You are TOO inspirational, Cindy! I’ve got so many projects I want to do – where to begin? Oh, poor me, my creativity overfloweth ~Phaedrakat
  • Hi Cindy… I had the most amazing experience last night… met a lady that has subscribed to your videos and makes the most beautiful buttons. She sews them on handmade felted wool mittens that her daughter makes. I have been a scrapbooker, card maker, paper bead maker and am now looking to learn another craft. I am a mother of 8 grown children and didn’t start crafting until a few years ago… I am 69 yrs. old and love to make beautiful things. Thanks for the opportunity to learn about polymer clay. ~Jan-K

FAUX OPALS

  • Just wanted to let you know that this video has kicked my butt into gear with getting into clay jewelry design. I’ve been sitting on the idea for a while. I was teetering the line of “no it doesn’t look authentic so I won’t try it” mentality until I saw your opals. Opals are my favourite of the delicate precious stones and I couldn’t believe how realistic your clay opals look! Thanks! ~Katrina-S
  • I am an opal fanatic (it’s my birthstone, even) and I’ve been unhappy with the other opal treatments I’ve found elsewhere, for polymer clay. Cindy’s is just GORGEOUS. ~Charlene-A
  • I am so excited this week is finally here. I have been waiting for your faux opal tutorial. We are on spring break here and I have everything ready to start Friday morning. Air head here finally found macro on my camera so will send you some pictures of the opals I make. Thank you so much for all you do for us. You are just amazing!!!!! ~Linda-B
  • Here it comes! Yea!!  The “opals” in the photo are stunning. With yet another wonderful tut on the way, I am confident I soon will have another pc skill in my repertoire. As always, thank you. ~Elizabeth-S
  • Opals are my mom’s birthstone and she had a beautiful expensive one given to her by her uncle (who worked on a ship) from Africa. She lost it many years ago but also talked about it. I saw the ring once. I am going to make her an opal pendant or earrings as her fingers are now swollen with arthritis and she also had a stroke two years ago. She still loves to wear earrings so I think that’s what I’ll do and send it to her. She lives with Dad in India so far away – I miss them. ~Cheryl-H
  • Opal is the reason I became interested in PC! Opal this month and Jade next, I’ve died and gone to PC heaven. Thank you Cindy. ~Ken-H
  • Love the faux opal tute – I knew I would. I see many sparkles in our lives. Wow did not expect to use the bake and bond like that. It is amazing these beads can be polished into those beautiful stones. HIP HIP HURRAY FOR CINDY AND DOUG!!! Job well done once again. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you. ~Peggy-B
  • I’m just so amazed at how clear and beautiful these opals get — truly gorgeous! ~Phaedrakat
  • I was so excited about this opal tut, that I paid my worker to come in for a couple of hours while I went shopping for supplies.. I’ve got it bad *LOL* I found the Snow at ” Party Supply” It is called confetti on the bag. ~Brenda-M
  • Cindy, Wish I could have watched the neurons firing when you came up with this faux opal tutorial. You’ve outdone even yourself, and that is no minor feat. Oh, these are so beautiful! Sadly for me, my big ole bag of Buffalo Snow was something besides the flakes you used, but I will hit the party supply stores tomorrow in search of a usable substitute. In the meantime though, I bought some cellophane gift wrap stuff at Hobby Lobby which will allow me to practice the technique. Are you sure I can’t borrow just a tiny piece of that creative brain of yours? As I have said before, I will give it back, I promise (well, maybe). ~Elizabeth-S
  • I’ve seen tutorials on other opals and I think yours is the best.  Can’t wait til I have time to try it. ~Linda-K
  • As always Cindy adds that super flair…. I have tried other faux opal techniques and was not happy with the outcome… this one looks wonderful… Thanks Cindy. ~Nancy-R
  • Cindy: Thank you so much Cindy! I can’t wait to get started making these amazing faux opals. I had never heard of plunging the baked clay into ice water to clarify the translucent clay until I discovered your site. Thank you very much for that also. ~Cheryl-V
  • Ooooh I LOVE real opals, and hadn’t seen a faux technique that really captured them well…until yours! YEAH!!! ~Deborah-S
  • I’ve gotten so many compliments about my faux opal pendant. In the sunlight it looks absolutely amazing. I use Patera bezels from Nunn Design. They are a bit expensive but the end result proves worth it. I also made a ring and earrings in the opal. And instead of the Buffalo Snow flakes, which I couldn’t find, I found some iridescent decorating shred (or Easter basket grass), and cut that up instead. ~Hobokenmary
  • These faux opals are great! Should rename them faux-pals! ~Leigh-B

SILVER SPOON BAIL

  • I was cleaning my silverware drawer this morning and what did I come across. My sons silver baby spoon (now 22 years old)! What a great thing to do with it! My other children had the silver baby spoons also. I can make them each a piece of jewelry with their baby spoons!! ~Maureen-G
  • You gals are way ahead of me. I have just watched the actual Spoon Bail Tutorial which has just come in to me about 6pm Friday night 26th here in Australia. Don’t know how that comes into it for your time zones. I presume most may have seen  the Tut, but I want to say, what an interesting Tut. Whether I will be doing this one re finding the right spoons and the right equipment re the vice, (which I gave away after my DH passed away) (I always liked that vice too) He always seemed to be able to do something I wanted on it. Anyway I’ll keep it in mind if something comes up that looks like it needs that sort of bail. I enjoyed seeing you Cindy  with all those spoons, you looked ready for lots of work. You see a collection like that in the Op shop stores as we call them you would never even think how useful they would be in our Polyclay work LOL, so I will look at them in a different light from now on. Think it was one of the most interesting Tuts in a long time. Not that all the Tuts aren’t, but that did just take my fancy a bit. Thank you so much. Will see what I can do, when I can do’ Love, ~Elizabeth-K
  • Thanks Cindy for another terrific video tutorial. The information about the silverspoon bails was really informative. All the best. ~Cara-L
  • Fun! If I pop into town later I might trawl the charity shops to see if they have any stray spoons (knowing me I’ll come back with about a million books at £1 each though, lol!). I know I said this wasn’t my style, but I’m sure I could think of something that’s “me”. Hmm… will think about it! ~Silverleaf
  • I was getting my hair cut the other day and describing the silver spoon bail tut to my stylist, who is a multi-media artist and always interested in what I am doing with clay. Anyway, I had expressed disappointment that I had been unable to find spoons for the project.  She immediately directed me to a little antique shop she frequents where she had seen some. Sure enough, when I got there I found a huge tub of them exactly like the one in the tut, in all sizes and best of all, cheap. Maybe it was meant to be. The short version of this saga is that I am ready to go!! I have loved the idea of these pieces since the first picture you posted, Cindy, and I am so anxious to try them I can’t stand it.  Thank you. Thank you! ~Elizabeth-S
  • Hi Cindy, I love to hunt for silverware / flatware too! I’ve made some lovely beads to string with silverware pendants by imprinting the handle design into thin layers of raw clay. The design portion may then be wrapped around scrap clay tube or round beads and highlighted with metallic powders ,paints etc. to create complimentary beads. Thanks for showing how to recycle everyday items into artful additions to our lives and making a little less trash in the landfills! ~Lynn-V
  • I forsee a shortage of old silver spoons! Here I thought all you needed to do was just bend the spoon and voila! Once again, a wealth of information from Cindy’s experience. ~Koolbraider
  • What a fun project.  I can think of a lot of fun ideas for this. Mother’s day is coming and a picture transfer on clay of a favorite grandchild would be perfect as a gift. Thanks for inspiring me. ~Loretta-C
