Polymer Clay Membership SiteLove your Videos. You are the FIRST person to show me how to do a leaf quickly and correctly. THANKS GIRLFRIEND!!!!! ~Donna >> This comment was originally posted here: Fimo Polymer Clay

Cindy, You are the best…  I have books, books, and more books but there is nothing like your hands on video teaching.  I look forward to each new e-mail and I love your “down to earth”  style. Thank you so much. ~Ginger >> This comment was received via email.

Just a short note to say thank you. I recently became a member and bought all your back issues and courses and am really glad that I did so. I love your style of tuition. You are clear and informative and the quality of video is great. I have bought so many books and watched other videos, but you have taught me so much more. Here in Australia the tutorial level of polymer clay that I have come in contact with is not great and very expensive. I now can proceed with confidence and I have a permanent resource to check with if I falter! I look forward to further tuition and thank you again. All the best. ~Cara >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Beads

I loved the videos.  They were easy to watch and I learned a great deal.  I’m new to polymer clay and am very thirsty for knowledge.  The bonus videos were very helpful.  I feel I got my money’s worth and would do it again.  I can’t wait for more videos. ~Lynn >> This comment was received via email.

Cindy, Found you while surfing a few days ago. The video you sent me on the Skinner Blend was probably the best I have seen. What I will be interested in when you get them done is making canes, the more advanced ones. I also wanted to thank you on the info on storing clay. I just stuck them in baggie not knowing there would be problems. I have had a few left when I put the clay up for a while to take care of more pressing matters and boy was it hard to soften up again. I should have no upcoming problems and should be able to work on the clay one night a week. One night goes to painting or drawing, one night go to counted cross stitch, one night go to jewelry making and one night is Bible Study. ~Pat >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Skinner Blend

Thanks for your help with my login issue. By the way I have learned so much from your videos, and look forward to them every week. ~Jackie >> This comment was received via email.

I would love to make a wild violet cane because of the vibrant purples which the skinner blend plug technique you showed last week would be perfect for at least a different kind depth would be seen in the cane. Besides the only flowers that grow around my house are either wild or made of clay! And looking at photos for ideas of depth, shape and color should be a tried and true method when it comes to caning and any other polymer clay project! Even if the photo is a beautiful/simple  hand drawn pic made all by yourself! P.S. I love the videos you send every week they really do inspire me! ~Abby >> >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Cane Designs

I just wanted to say that I love your video’s and your teaching style.  I am a visual learner so seeing your video’s has helped me tremendously. ~Jennifer >> This comment was received via email.

Great video Cindy!  Can’t wait to see what you do with the [Skinner Blend] plug. Have a good one!  ~Zoe >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Techniques

Hi Cindy! I have paid the $9.95 for the back issues and am a monthly paying member. The color cards are ingenious…love them! And, since I am a hands on person, I love the videos. Thanks for all your hard work! ~Jayne >> This comment was received via email.

Hi Cindy, It would be great to have a video for the Raku and Crackle beads… Your videos are great and I learned much from them. Best regards. ~Janine >> This comment was originally posted here: Faux Raku Beads

As a fairly new person to polymer clay, I have found the Polymer Clay Tutor to be an invaluable resource. I do subscribe to the member site and am glad to do so. Others with more experience may be better able to navigate all the information “out there”, but I too found it all to be overwhelming. Cindy’s courses and videos are well done, start with the basics, and then build as your skills increase. And, as another person said, it’s all there in one spot. If you have specific questions, Cindy is very prompt to answer questions on the blog or in separate emails. For me, the cost of membership is well worth what I am getting!. ~Marsha >> This comment was received via email.

Nice job on this video. Really shows the student the process quite nicely. Looking forward to the next video. ~Adrienne >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Tutorial – Leaf Cane

I’ve been using the Cindy Lietz beadsandbeading site. I especially like being able to order “back issues” based on topics that I really want to know about. Recipes are good, videos are good. The field has become so vast that I find I have to narrow my focus or I don’t get anywhere! So I like being able to learn about “sanding and buffing” long before I am ready for Mokume Gane. Then she has that too when I’m ready. ~Monique >> This comment was received via email.

Cindy, Thank you for this post. I consider myself a Newbie, because I have only worked in polymer clay for a month or so. But I have been crafting, drawing, painting for all of my adult life…(30 yrs or so, you do the math ;-) I find that I am bringing all sorts of skills to my new found interest, a knowledge of color, design, other techniques that have worked in other media. But I don’t know the ins and outs of working with polymer clay. This is why I find your site so helpful. I don’t have a lot of patience learning through mistakes and it really helps to “see” through videos how to do something. And, although I feel I have a lot of knowledge in other areas, I feel intimidated by asking simple questions of experts. So I guess this is a long way of saying how I feel you hit the nail on the head! ~Sue >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Jewelry Hearts

“OMG! Its amazing…I haven’t had a chance to try it all but I watch the video and say oh that’s how you do that!! I love it…you offer a great amount of knowledge! Thanks!!!” ~Carlene >> This comment was received via email.

Wow Cindy! This is the first of your videos I have watched, and I have to say what a nice job! The camera angles were great and the picture was very bright and clear. Much better than the blurry, dark, jumpy videos I have seen elsewhere. If all your vids are this well done, then what a value your membership really is! Thank you so very much for sharing this one in particular with all of us. I am sure everyone who watches this will be able to use this method easily after watching you do it. Even if they have been intimidated by the skinner blend in the past. What a sweetheart you are to give us all this chance to see it. XOXO ~Jaime >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Teardrop Method

I LOVE your stuff. I’m just starting out and your library video lessons are invaluable. ~Rhea >> This comment was received via email.

Hi Cindy, Your videos are always so inspiring! I get up especially early on Fridays just to see what video you have sent and I sit down with my coffee and watch. As you know, I am new to polymer clay, but I have watched your videos as much as I can and I am a fast learner, but I was wondering where I can find the patten for making flower canes such as the one you used in the video today. I have already tried a mod cane and a checkered cane, but the flower cane looks so daunting to me. Thanks so much. ~Charlene >> This comment was originally posted here: Making Polymer Clay Flower Beads

Hello Cindy, I am enjoying my in home tutor classes very much!  While I started out with Sculpey III, I am still using it to learn with while waiting to grab some of the firmer clays.  I had all but given up, thinking I was doing something wrong or just wasn’t a ‘clayer’.  Thanks to you, I have rediscovered my love for clay.  I’ve done many crafts over the years but making my own beads to add to my beaded works is just fantastic! Your instructions, tips and ‘you can do this’ attitude are wonderful.  The videos are easy to understand and are not long and drawn out.  You explain the process as it is listed in the title and then move right along.  I also like that I can view them at any time from the comfort of my home, in any order.  The price for your course is fantastic, as well.  I can’t go get books that describe all the things in your tutorials for that price – no way!  Thank you for an excellent product, wonderful instruction and fantastic tips!  If there was only a way to add a ribbon now …  lol! Sincerely. ~Roberta >> This comment was received via email.

Just like Peggy in a previous comment I had been looking around here for quite awhile, not realizing there is so much more for you when you really join. So I joined only a few days ago, and like Peggy I found Cindy to be on top of everything and couldn’t do enough for me,and yes I feel I have found a like minded friend in Cindy. As you say Peggy I don’t know when she sleeps, because as soon as I had emailed her she has come back with a reply which I needed to know about even tho we are in different time zones. How she does it all I don’t know I am so glad I have joined and have already made use of the content I have in my paid for videos. I have a Makins Extruder and am having fun with it as I had only used it warily before now I’ve got beautiful mod canes I didn’t know I could do. I have been Polying for about 4 yrs on and off , but being here has made me want to focus on becoming really good at what I do and with Cindy’s on going tutoring I sure will. It is so much better to see the videos and see how someone else does things. Thank you Cindy for being who you are and having such a passion for Poly clay and inspiring so many people. Keep up the good work I cant wait to get to the computer every day now. From another Aussie down under Madly passionate Polymer Clayist. Thank you Cindy. ~Elizabeth >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Beads How To Videos
