Polymer Clay Membership SiteOh Cindy!!! That was fun and I did, indeed, learn a lot while doing my “Treasure Hunt”. I will say that it was work…but so worthwhile!!! Thank you again for your generosity in sharing your knowledge with us. ~Selma >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Treasure Hunt

Cindy…you are such a wealth of knowledge! I am following your treasure hunt…but it is taking me hours because I am so enthralled with each and every page that I am finding on your site!!!  I can’t bear to go onto the next clue until I have read every word, and every link on each page!  I am so excited about all that I am learning from you.  My creative mind is in a whirlwind thinking of all that I am going to be able to do and make with all that I am learning from you…it is so great!!!  WOW!!! ~Cindy >> This comment was originally posted here: Sanding Polymer Clay Beads

Hello Cindy, Wonderful membership campaign. I have actually been on the fence and was pleased with the complimentary volume. I am thrilled to spend time on the site and learn lots of new techniques and color combinations for the pieces I create. Again thank you for hosting such a great site. I look forward to future conversations. ~Julie >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Artist

I just finished the tresher hunt i think soooooo yea i’m 14 and loven it and need all the help i can get!! ~Ali >> This comment was received via email.

I must admit I have not made any canes as of yet. But I do love Pansy’s I think they are one of the prettiest flowers in a garden. I would love to see you make a video of this cane. I am still having trouble using the translucent. I either use to much or not enough or something. I know I have said this before but I have really learned a lot by getting into this treasure hunt. Of course I am seeing double by the time I pull myself away from the computer. LOL  And my husband thinks I left him. But it has been worth it all. You do a great job and I realy appreciate it. ~Linda >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Cane Designs

Great article Cindy! Personally I love cardstock and tile method to keep things flat and to avoid shiny spots or sometimes I’ll use printer paper if weighting it down with another tile. I’ve had mishaps with Parchment as it tends to wrinkle with heat, at least the stuff I’ve used. This treasure hunt is fun, but I don’t really need to win a treasure, you’ve got all sorts of treasures on every page! :) ~Tina >> This comment was originally posted here: Baking Flat Polymer Clay Sheets

I love your description of the sunflower against the blue sky.  As a Kansas born girl, well, old lady now!, I know that sunflowers are the lifeblood for people – especially women.  Where ever I have gone, moving across the Good ol’ United States, I have planted sunflowers and provided black oil sunflowers for the birds.  The color palette for the petals is brilliant and so creative.  Your experience in mixing the clay colors is desperately needed by me – an old lady beginner!   Now i want to figure out a design incorporating the black oil sunflowers . . . so the birds have something to eat as well.  Thanks for the best website on polymer clay i have ever found.  At last – I am learning something.  And the treasure hunt is just plain fun, although winning would be even better! ~Pamela >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Color Mixing Recipes

This treasure hunt has been so informative for this newby in clay. I have all my clay and supplies stored at my moms and on the weekends we get together and have “Clay Dates”. 4 generations of clayers. Mom, me, my daughter Jennifer and then my 2 grand daughters from my other daughter that I am raising. The prize would be a wonderful tool to teach the girls, 6 and 4. Thank you again. ~Jeanie >> This comment was received via email.

Cindy, I’ll be the first one to tell you that I like tests, etc. like this. I got a score of 8, but now I’m cross-eyed. Guess it’s time for bed. THANKX as always for making it fun. ~Darinder >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Color Quiz

I got six out of ten right, too! I know I’ll be watching the video course again soon! :-) In my defense though, I’ve been concentrating on my flower petal beads and experimenting with Premo, Fimo and Kato translucent clays. Each one is unique and they each seem to react differently with different flowers. This was a great quiz though, Cindy! Thank you! ~Marsha >> This comment was originally posted here: How To Make Beads

This was a fun exercise and also very thought provoking.  It made me realize how fortunate and lucky I have been in my life.  Thank you for taking me to that moment of realization. Now to continue the hunt for that recipe. ~Illaya >> This comment was originally posted here: Thanksgiving Wishes
