Customer Reviews (Volume-031):


  • Cindy/Doug: What a lovely palette! I wish I knew the proper name for the delightful “Vegas Wildflower”, but I doubt I could help even it were growing in my backyard (I’m terrible with flower names!) Doug, you seem to have captured it’s beauty perfectly, and the palette Cindy created is a gorgeous match. Thanks so much, Team Lietz! You amaze with your brilliance week after week… Looking forward to getting these recipes! ~Phaedrakat
  • Great colors.  Maybe someone from this blog will solve the mystery flower name. ~Anna-S
  • Lovely palette, Cindy! :) ~Sue-F
  • It looks kind of like a Fireworks flower… But looking at it closer, I’m just not sure… Pretty flower, pretty palette..!! Clay On. ~Lisa-W
  • The photo is striking, great job Doug! Of course we have come to expect nothing less than equally sticking palettes from you, Cindy. You certainly proved it here. Love it! ~Joyce-M
  • Love those colors Cindy!! ~Jeanne-C
  • You know, sometimes the desert surprises us with beautiful flowers that no one notices enough to identify.  Leave it to Doug to capture it so beautifully.  Beautiful palette. ~Elizabeth-S
  • LOVE this color palette…such a pretty blend of pink and accent colors!! ~DJ
  • Doesn’t Las Vegas mean ‘the wildflowers’?  Plus, as someone said, desert plants burst in the spring with the rains because they know there won’t be anymore later that year. This palette is just gorgeous! ~Barb-L
  • Funny, I was just thinking about your colour palettes today (as I downloaded them into my new computer) and was struck by the names you give your colours. The names are all so lush and original, it’s impossible NOT to try to mix them to see what they look like. ~Isabel-H


  • All I can say is that this putty is my favorite friend now. I have been making some beautiful faux opal cabochons. No more blisters yay!! ~Brenda-M
  • WOOOHOO! Just returned from spending a few days with my daughter and found my silicone putty waiting. Thanks, Terry!! This tut is awesome.  I don’t know where to start molding but I have some good possibilities having inherited some of my mother-in-law’s vintage jewelry pieces. Hafta hop over to the FB page and see if anyone has posted pics yet. ~Elizabeth-S
  • Cindy, loved the tut and your take on doing it. Using the plexiglass makes for a neater mold = neater piece. Looking forward to trying it “your way”. This is still the BEST, CARING site and educational. Way to go, EVERYONE! ~Joyce-M
  • Awesome tutorial. The possibilities ….!!! ~Cheryl-H
  • Excellent tut loaded with good news. Especially love that the silicone sticks to itself after baking… so if you have trouble with it coming out too thin you can fix it. Cannot wait to get out my old jewelry collection, finally a mold that works!!! Thank you Cindy and Doug for a wonderful video, and thanks to you Terry, for making this substance available to us. Order will be in today, lol! Even though you get a near perfect finish on the reverse fopal technique, I’d still sand it and buff it to bring up every sparkling dimension possible. Just great that it requires a lot less sanding.~Jocelyn-C
  • Just watched the tutorial, great work Cindy. One thing I will mention is that you can add more silicone to that already cured mold, like in the case of the round one that was too thin. Silicone is one of the few things the silicone will stick to. So if you get a thin spot you can fix it with more silicone. ~Terry-M
  • I recently ordered resin from Terry and noticed he had some new products, the silicone was one of them I watched his video and thought wow this looks like a great product and easy to use. Great tutorial idea Cindy. And thanks Terry for another great product. ~Jeanne-C
  • Fantastic! Brenda, I also have a stash of old costume jewelry and other odds and ends (from cleaning out daughter’s bedroom) that would look very cool. Wouldn’t baking faux opals in the mold be great without lots of sanding!!! ~Koolbraider
  • Oh yeah    another winner……:) ~Pollyanna
  • That looks awesome. My girlfriend gave me a bunch of her mothers old vintage jewelry to make molds from but they don’t come out clean in clay. This might be the answer. Thanks again. ~Bonnie-K
  • OH YEAH! I have to get me some of that putty.. I’ve been doing a lot of research on this stuff, but I have been kind of scared to leap into using it. Thanks for doing this tutorial! ~Brenda-M
  • This putty is AMAZING! I am thinking of all sorts of things I can do with it – now to find the time to play!  Happy Holidays, Cindy and thank you for all the great tips, ideas, products and for sharing your wonderful talent with us! ~Cheryl-K


  • Hi Cindy, once again a great tut. Well I had never heard of Druzies, but have seen them and call them Crystilines. Have now looked it all up on Google, amazing. Love this idea of Faux Drusies as in the real thing they are so beautiful. All sorts of colours, a particular one I like is Amythest, so beautiful. Well thanks again for another great tut. Love. ~Elizabeth-K
  • Great tutorial! Cindy it’s amazing how you figured out how to make the druzies and made it so easy for us. Thank you Thank you Thank you!! ~Jeanne-C
  • I am going to use plaster of paris to fill the molds, then make my silicone mold off of that. Of course, it is a more expensive alternative than your suggestion. You always come up with the most inexpensive way to get around things. ~Bette-L
  • What an awesome tutorial. The druzies are beautiful! Going to Michaels on Monday; I hope they have the metallic sand.  ~Cheryl-H
  • Great tutorial… love love love it especially since my style tends to go toward the natural end of things.~Kathy-G
  • I think I’m going to just go crazy with this tute!! ~Catalina
  • Fantastic!!!!!! The Druzies I’ve seen on some of the Jewelry shopping channels look just like this, some of the one’s I’ve seen have a finer crystalline structure in the cavities, but with a little research on materials they could be created also. Great Job once again Cindy and Doug. ~Ken-H
  • Cindy – I thought I was the one of the first ones to watch the tutorial because I’m on Pacific Time, and up late. But I guess others have beat me to it! Once I saw the email link, I HAD to check it out, and these are gorgeous. It’s amazing how creative you can be with different materials and techniques. I had seen the metallic sand before, at a Michael’s, but had no idea how to incorporate it into my projects. Thanks for this great idea! HOW are you so creative? That should be a future tutorial. ~Vierra-C
  • Thank you so much Cindy for this brilliant yet simple idea! My mind just took off as I realized the potential, the sky’s the limit! I also want to thank you for making Friday such a special day, I get a real thrill on Thursday when I realize I only have to wait a few more hours for another super video! ~Marion-R
  • Thank you, Cindy! Another awesome tut!! You make them so easy…now I have to get some of the silicone mold putty and get to work.  Crushed beach stone sounds lovely.I wonder if you can get that at the pet store in the fish dept as gravel for the tanks? There happens to be a pet store right next to my Joanns so I’ll have to stop in and take a look. ~Laura-Z
  • Awesome! I just saw all the floral sand while helping a customer a few days ago. I wondered if using the “sand” would be cool to add to clay. Well, you beat me to it, as usual, Cindy! This looks great and easy! My husband has even said that I can’t look at anything without wondering how I can use it with my clay! ~Catalina
  • Wow…another hit!!!  My grandson is staying over tonight. He might like helping gram do some druzys. Thanks for another mind opening tute. They do get gray matter working…..lol. ~Pollyanna
  • Awesome as always! Gonna get me stuff for druzy-doin’! ~Sarah-W
  • WOW! WOW! WOW! Talk about the path of a new creation with endless possibilities. Cindy once again has worked hard to give us just that for very little cost. Then Doug captures it all on film like the artistic pro he always is. Blessed we all are to have found Cindy and purchased her tutorials, although I feel like I am getting them for free with the cost as low as it is and the quality is over the moon. So THANK YOU!!! BOTH for all the talent you so kindly share with us for free and the tutes you sale us for next to nothing. Lietz Team is #1 in my Book!!!! LOVE AND UUUUUGGGGGGS. ~Peggy-B
  • Those Duzzies are breathtaking. ~Brenda-M
  • Ain’t this a wonderful site!!! Two weeks ago I didn’t know what a druzie was now I know how to create them!! Awesome!!! Cindy, I think the finished pieces in the preview vid are stunningly beautiful. If I can come half as close in making mine, I will be happy. ~Elizabeth-S
  • Cindy you are the BEST!  To produce the video so quickly after we asked (rather…..begged) you to show us this technique is just so great. I have yet to meet another person who is so willing to share their exceptional skills. I particularly like the metal “frames” around your cabachons they really compliment your faux druzies. Thank you! ~Susan-B
  • I knew it!! I knew you would be showing us the Druzies. :)  I hope to make something for my mother for Christmas using this technique. I think she’ll love it! Cindy, you ROCK! ~Catalina
  • Another great Friday, this time with Druzies. So like you Cindy to bring our request so quickly. Thank you and Doug for whatever efforts it took. We seem to repeat ourselves, but what other way is there to say “You’re the greatest in what you do”. ~Joyce-M
  • How nice! WE asked for Druzies and guess what we are getting? TahDah!!!  DRUZIES. Thank you – as usual, you listen to what we want. Not many people do that, right? But Cindy and Doug do – what more could you ask for …. Another original tute. Yeah… ~Patt-W


  • Don’t you love using wire with PC? A match made in heaven Scraps just crying out -use me, use me!!! And now I will be able to – what a great idea!!! Don’t know how you do it, but your brain must be on speed time. LOL ~Patt-W
  • Brilliant Idea Cindy! As always. ~Brenda-M
  • I used your technique today, Cindy, but had to use aluminum wire as I have lost my copper wire I just bought!  Ok, where is that brain?  I had it somewhere….oh, well.  It will turn up in the fridge or someplace equally odd I imagine (the wire, not the brain). Anyway, I made a sorta-leaf shaped pendant with remnants from Torn Watercolor technique in muted Christmasy colors with the embedded bail and I think it turned out great! ~Becky-C
  • Very, very cool project. ~Kathy-B
  • I think the possibilities for amazingly unique outcomes is the gift of this technique. Thank you, Cindy and Doug for giving me another push forward as a wannabe pc artist. Hugs. ~Elizabeth-S
  • Cindy, I don’t know what well you are tapping for this inspiration, but once again, unique, gorgeous, and unlimited. Never in a million years left to myself would I have ever thought of this technique. Kudos. And Thanks Doug. ~Jocelyn-C
  • Really enjoying the videos Cindy, even though I am not claying this month. I have my colored pencils so can work on some design ideas and taking loads of photographs while enjoying being a snowbird. Today’s video was especially inspiring. Thanks. ~Lawrence-S
  • Can’t wait to try this, now. Oh my gosh…. how do you keep coming up with these things? These tutes are just right for newbies like me and I imagine give ideas for the more experienced clayers too. WTG girl… and Doug :) ~Pollyanna
  • Wow these are simply lovely! I particularly like the earrings with the silver wire. Thank you Cindy.  Doug, your filming is just getting better and better — thank you too! ~Susan-B
  • Wow, just watched this video and I love how elegant it looks. Thank-you Cindy! ~Anne-O
  • I just love these… they have such an elegant, simple line. You continue to spoil us Cindy – can’t wait! ~DJ
  • I agree with the others, above, too.  I have made some beautiful beads and other items from “mistakes” that were supposed to be something else, usually a kaleidoscope cane gone awry!  Also, I have dug out a piece of scrap clay to roll into a ball to be covered by another project only to find that the totally random and odd-colored scraps are simply gorgeous when rolled or run through the pasta machine, so much so that they just had to be used on their own. I love this about working with polymer clay. So little waste and so many happy “accidents” to be found. I love your bail idea, Cindy, and cannot wait to try it. Another lovely tutorial to add to our arsenal! ~Becky-C


  • Wow, again you make it soooo easy!! I really like the Gingham lentil bead that you did, it’s so cool!! Thanks again, Cindy, for all you do!! ~Laura-Z
  • Gingham is so cute! Love the way it looks swirled in a lentil, too. I’m also happy to see gingham cane on your beautiful hearts (with color interiors.) With Valentine’s Day not that far off, it’s good to be reminded of your cool heart bead tutorial, too. ~Phaedrakat
  • Just did the Gingham Cane last night, came out exceptionally well for a first attempt. ~Ken-H
  • Thank you Cindy and Doug for a most wonderful year of fun, artistic, brain storming, happy go lucky, low cost, tutorials and blogging. The LIETZ TEAM beats them all at everything you could possibly think of. The two of you slammed it out there with a year of the most exciting PC Fun and Talent all wrapped up into a package anyone can afford. No excuse to pass this up. If you only knew. Try it and the only regret you will have is that you have missed so much for so little money. Come on and join the best PC tutor ever. UUUUUUUGGGGGGGS. ~Peggy-B
  • I love the new gingham cane!!  So nostalgic!  Thanks, Cindy. ~Dorothy-H
  • Wow, that was so easy! I was really intrigued with your black ball headpin and bead caps, that were on the big gingham lentil bead. ~Pam-M
  • Cindy, you have taught me to really LOOK at the technique you are teaching. It has helped me figure out HOW things are made. I thank you for that – but that’s not all. The tutes drive me outside my comfort zone. Isn’t that great? I am much more serious about my art – but know about myself. I am growing old, but not growing UP. LOL ~Patt-W
  • Another great video, Cindy and Doug. I have 3 little grand-nieces and this technique will be great for buttons for their little pink (they love pink) outfits. It should be very easy to adapt this technique to reproduce plaids as well. ~Linda-K
  • Love this tutorial….easy and a cute effect. My little grand-daughter has been joining me in my workshop and is fascinated by what she can do with pc. She covered a glass ball and made a Christmas ornament for her Dad and made heart charms for her Mum and herself.  I’m sure she’ll love the gingham canes. I’ve already made purple, blue, red and black gingham… I LOVE them! Thanks again. ~Isabel-H
  • Thanks so much, Cindy: for everything you’ve done all year — you’re amazing! And of course, thanks for the latest cool video… I can’t wait to bust out my extruder and make some gingham… :D ~Phaedrakat
  • Thanks, Cindy, for another brilliant tut!  I can see these easily as buttons; wouldn’t black and white be cute on a black shirt?  Hmmm….I have one of those, too, just begging to be updated!  Would make great spring/summer earrings and necklaces, bracelets, too. ~Becky-C
  • These are so cute!! They will make great buttons or cute earrings or bracelet for little girls. Not to mention all the ladies that are into the cute country look. There are a bunch that I work with that would love these. Can’t wait to learn another technique. That lentil bead is modern country, LOL!! ~Laura-Z
  • Ok, I’m inspired again. LOVE THIS!!! ~Elizabeth-S
  • I love this look! ~Fran-R
  • Cute! Although this is one of those things that totally isn’t my style, I know that I’ll learn things from the video that I can apply to other projects. ~Silverleaf
  • This should make the coolest buttons.  (And beads and pendants and…) ~Koolbraider
  • Well, I jumped right in and got started on the gingham canes. Love the retro feel of gingham. I posted them on Facebook, or you can see what I put together on my blog. I can’t wait to make something with them. I like the idea of the black and white buttons on a black shirt that someone mentioned. Thanks, Cindy, for a fun tute. ~Loretta-C
