  • I like it! Very soothing and peaceful. ~Silverleaf
  • Me too. I especially love the palm frond. Thank you! ~Dawn-B
  • Another beautiful palette, Cindy and Doug. BTW, I bought my board like Silverleaf’s and I’ve started my magnetized color collection. Can’t wait to add these! ~Elizabeth-S
  • Lovely shades of green.  Really cool palette. ~Patt-W
  • Beautiful palette Cindy and so relaxing. Thanks so much for the many palettes, you make it so vivid with the descriptions and stories. I was born and grew up in Mumbai, and there are a lot of coconut palms. Every part of the coconut palm is used. The leaves for roofs in the villages and woven into trays, baskets, the coconut shell made into ladles, the coir used in mattresses. The coconut milk is used in cooking and the creamy flesh of the coconut is so delicious; I love the coconut water, it’s very cool and refreshing in the hot summer and recommended for hepatitis. ~Cherie-H
  • I am in total agreement oolala Cindy and Doug add another beautiful picture to my list of copies I would LOVE to have!!!! Many Uuuuugggggs. ~Peggy-B
  • Needless to say, Cindy and Doug, you are a winning combination, and we are all blessed to have you in our lives! ~Marlene-C
  • Hi everyone, I just joined this site yesterday and I’m LOVING it!!! I’ve worked a little bit with polymer clay, but I consider myself a beginner. I’ve been looking at different posts and comments, and I think it’s great how everyone works together to problem solve and figure out better ways to use this medium. And everyone seems so friendly. I’m so excited about learning more about polymer clay, and I look forward to getting to know all of you! :-) Happy Claying! ~Kat-W


  • I just watched the video, that is the fastest and easiest mokume gane process I’ve seen! Thanks for another great tutorial. ~Jeanne-C
  • Thank you for your informative videos. They are so easy to follow, and you are speaking so clearly that I almost forgett it isn’t my language! I’m – like many others in this forum – looking forwards to the Fridays. An enthusiastic supporter. ~Synnove-O
  • Very impressive, old style mokume gane in 8 min flat!!!  Very nicely done. ~Jocelyn-C
  • My goodness, Cindy, this is the easiest mokume gane tutorial I’ve seen! I’ve tried a couple of different MG techniques from books in the past, but my results just weren’t great. Your technique looks foolproof. Maybe we should nickname this tutorial “Cindy’s Mokume Gane for Dummies.”  And I mean that only in the most positive way! I’ve watched the tutorial a couple of times and I’ve  already identified a couple of reasons why my past attempts were failures. ~Linda-K
  • Seems like you simplify things all the time! Fast and Easy Mokume gane! Love it. ~Cherie-H
  • Love mokume gane! Another inspiring tute. Thanks guys!!! ~Pollyanna
  • The reason I decided to try polymer clay in the first place many years ago was to learn faux mokume gane after seeing a gorgeous pair of earrings at a bead show. ~Linda-K
  • I love Mokume Gane too! Those earrings are lovely! Thanks, Cindy! ~Lupe-M
  • The Mokume Gane – Absolutely gorgeous and you make everything so easy to do. ~Trudy-M
  • The New metallics rock! Your tutorial too Cindy. ~Brenda-M
  • Thanks, Cindy, this was great just as I expected from you. ~EJ
  • Once again you’ve chosen an awesome technique to show us. I have taken a little break lately on making my polymer clay beads, but love this mokume gane method and plan to hit the ground running. I have so many visions I can do with this that I can’t wait to get started. ~Loretta-C
  • Wow, is it that easy? I’m going to order my metallics right now!!! Cindy, you are an angel! ~Trudy-M
  • This is my favorite technique of all. I had never done any work with clay and when we evacuated for Hurricane Katrina, I took my first ever Polymer cafe magazine with me down the road I found you. In my fema trailer I tried their version of this and this way is so much easier than theirs. I love the new colors of the metals, so rich. Thank you for making it easy. ~Theresa-N
  • Love this technique. Can’t wait to try it with the mew metallic colors. I have made some using black cad red and white. The cuts are beautiful. ~Natalie-H
  • Wowser! This technique is just beautiful. The square of clay is in the freezer. It was way too soft to cut nicely. Can’t wait to try some different color waves. Thanks again Lietz team for an outstanding tute. ~Patt-W
  • The Mokume Gane is one of my favorite techniques, I did well selling my pendants last year at our craft show using this process. I’ve used the new copper color on 2 projects so far and the color is beautiful!! ~Jeanne-C
  • I watched Cindy’s faux metal mokume gane tutorial using the new Premo metallic colours. Wow so clever Cindy. I used a black backing sheet for contrast and made a whole bunch of different shaped beads and some hair barettes and earrings. Everyone loved them. ~Elaine-F


  • This technique is one to get excited about. Looks like the beading options are endless. Love it. ~Carolyn-K
  • It’s all beautiful. Mokume Gane is my favorite. First thing I ever tried with clay and keep going back to it. Love the leafing in that. ~Bonnie-K
  • Yes! I like this tute! I think the translucent clay is the secret here. ~Catalina
  • I really love all the beads you made from this technique, the colors are great and I have the colors needed! YEAH!! ~Jeanne-C
  • Another brilliant technique Cindy, you just keep on coming up with new things, which is great for us! ~Marion-R
  • More Mokume Gane!! I’m in clay heaven! ~Linda-K
  • Cool, love the technique, where you find the time to do all this is beyond me, but I am soo glad you do. ~Sandra-J
  • I love the effect! I think I’ll use pearl clay rather than glitter because I generally don’t like glitter in moku so much. But luckily I’ve just bought lots of silver and gold leaf (and I was very pleased with myself for getting a bargain at Hobbycraft because the leaf that wasn’t in the clay section was cheaper for 20 sheets than the Fimo branded stuff was for 11 sheets, and it’s exactly the same stuff.) ~Silverleaf
  • Love love love it!!! ~Pollyanna
  • Well, Cindy, you did not disappoint my anticipation! This looks very simple to do and how gorgeous your beads and other pieces turned out!  I remember now; I had also seen the similar technique (maybe Donna Kato’s?) where she used a ripple blade, cutting at an angle, and that would be fun to use with this cane as an alternative, too, I think. I really like the addition of leaf or foil on the outside of the cane, too. ~Rebecca-C
  • How fabulous. Easy but when applied it gets beautifully complex. I see a green canopy of leaves when I squint at the coin beads and dagger earrings. ~Jocelyn-C
  • I love this technique.  So many possibilities here. ~Loretta-C
  • Hi Cindy and all, just watched this Rolled Mokume Gane video, really great and as you said simple, I had never thought of using the foils this way, good for you for finding it for us Cindy. Bye, Love. ~Elizabeth-K
  • What a wonderful technique!  And so easy!  I’m just a little frustrated that I can’t get those beauteous new colors in my Michael’s store yet. ~Linda-K
  • Love it! I’m so glad you are there to experiment for me right now. I have had so little time to do any experimenting lately. Chasing 3 kiddos under 6, filling orders and getting ready to pcs (military move) to Brooklyn has been taking up all of my mental and physical energy. Thank you, Cindy & Doug. I so look forward to Fridays! ~Kathy-G
  • Love Love Love just as I knew I would. You always take something I already know and make it even more fun to work with. I just love your pendant and earrings. Who am I kidding I love it all. You are amazing and Doug’s filming even enhances it more. So another Grand Slam to add to my list of treasured tutes. Thank you both so very much. Love and Uuuuggggs. ~Peggy-B
  • I love Mokume Gane, and this one is so easy! The other videos out there just do not compare with the quality and information in yours. I love you guys! ~Bette-L


  • What a great idea! I really like making the headpins and this looks like such an excellent way to use them. ~Fran-R
  • Cindy, not only do I love these wire leaves and your technique for making them, but this video gave me a bunch of “aha’s” as I looked at several things from “outside the box.”  I do a lot of wire work independent of polymer clay and this video has opened my eyes to a number of ideas about how to do things a little differently or to solve problems that have been annoying me for some time! Thanks again, Cindy and Doug for a great job! ~Linda-K
  • Cindy I really enjoy your wire work because you explain it so well. If you could possibly do more in the future I’d be thrilled. The links are a really great idea. I’ll be using that one this weekend! ~Cara-L
  • Hi Cindy and all, this video with the wire and polymer clay is so interesting. I love the links used in the necklace, it has given me so many ideas. all that is needed now is lots of practice to get those wire leaves looking  like Cindy does them.AHMM! Always looks easy, but does require practice. I don’t have a butane gun, but I think that is next on my list of equipment. Thanks again Cindy for your interesting, easy to follow video. Love. ~Elizabeth-K
  • Just one word – awesome!!!!!!! Now I have to get busy on making my own head pins. Did anyone put in a request that the days be 48 hours long? I really need more time :) ~Catalina
  • Cool, Cindy! Thanks…I can’t wait to learn how you made the wonderful polymer leaf on top of your Seeds of Change bracelet. I can tell these leaf charms will be a useful thing to learn. I love the samples in the preview… some beautiful items. I agree that wire and polymer go VERY well together. Can’t wait to make little polymer/wire dangles!!! ~Phaedrakat
  • I’m having Manny make sure the house insurance is up to date – it will be worth the risk to try once again to master those headpins with my trusty little torch. Gosh I love this! The pieces are exquisite!! I can’t wait to see how to apply the clay to the charms. ~Elizabeth-S
  • Isn’t this an addiction to love? PC and wire are natural partners! I have a bunch of copper headpins ready to go. What fun.~Patt-W
  • I agree with Patt-W about polymer clay and wire, these charms are a fabulous combination! Thanks again Cindy and Doug for yet more inspiration to look forward to!! ~DJ
  • Interesting! The wired leaf charms with the polymer clay remind me of the fun art projects I used to do with my artsy grandmother in my childhood. We’d take wire bent into a similar shape like Cindy’s and dip it into this gooey stuff that then dried and became translucent. ~Maria-C
  • Cindy, I’m amassing a collection of “silver leaf” jewellery which I wear because it’s a great way to get customers to remember my business name! I have various different styles and I can definitely see this technique adding to my collection. It would be really easy to modify this a bit to create a central vein in the leaf too. Thanks! ~Silverleaf
  • WOW can’t wait to try this one. You can get several of this weeks ready and get your brain a whirling and a twirling, spinning and a winning because come next week it’s going to be BRAIN FULL of choices. Just think you are going to want your brain to run wild for a change. Just imagine all the possibilities. WOWSA- WOWSA – WOOOO- HOO! Let me tell you I need brain exercise as much if not more than other exercise. This is just one of many reasons I LOVE and am so addicted to Cindy’s tutorials. JUST ONE. I will be ready to fill these little babies next week Cindy. So for now all I have left is a VERY BIG THANK YOU and MANY UUUGGS. ~Peggy-B
  • I’m soooo looking forward to this one too. I agree with other comments, those who don’t subscribe are certainly missing out on wonderful stuff. Thanks Cindy. Here in New Zealand we are coming into winter now, so to hang on to spring with all my might, I’m going to make these. Cheers. ~Sandra-J


  • Wow, so many ideas packed into a few minutes!! I love all the possibilities, and especially the word charms. We can use text; interesting quotes/typefaces printed from the computer; different papers; even handwritten items (imagine photocopying or scanning a child’s message, drawing or ” I love you”). My head is swimming, this is just brilliant Cindy! ~DJ
  • This was great!! I have waited a long time to see this technique. It is a lot easier than I thought it would be. ~Lynn-W
  • Very,Very Cute! I loved the idea of using the printed paper. Very creative idea’s! ~Brenda-M
  • This is so neat! Can think of several different ways to use this. Love the Bake and Bond. It is much stronger than TLS. I still have pieces of Art Sheet tute. That would be fun to add, too. Thanks for such a versatile tute!!! This will keep us satisfied for quite a while LOL. At least til next week. ~Patt-W
  • Wonderful technique! Couldn’t wait to see it so watched it @ 3:30 am. Loved the video. Thanks Cindy as usual a great technique added to our expanding knowledge base. Hugs. ~Karonkay
  • Fun! This looks very cool and I’ll definitely be having a go when I have chance. Thanks Cindy!! ~Silverleaf
  • Love how the bake and bond looks somewhat like opal. wonder if you could put ‘snow’ in it? Gosh, the mind reels…..lol. ~Pollyanna
