Member Benefits 021-2: Tutoring Support

Polymer Clay Membership SiteDear Cindy, just watched the torn clay watercolor video – so easy and so impressive – so many techniques now to try and not enough hours in the day! Imagine our repertoire after a a few years of your lessons – i don’t think there is anywhere else where you can get this ongoing tuition in polymer clay. I do believe it will have a big influence in raising the artistic status of polymer clay in the community. The spotlight section is really impressive and such a good idea. Cheers. ~Cara-L >> This comment was originally posted here: Torn Paper Water Color Technique

What can I say? Better and better and better? Cindy, just when I think you’ve got this site about perfect, you take it up a notch. As always, I am looking forward to the next opportunities to learn from you. ~Elizabeth-S >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Flower Cane Tutorials

Hi Cindy, I was wondering how I will know it is time to pay for my next set of weeks of the program. I don’t want to be without you and your weekly classes. Please let me know how may weeks the classes are for and how many I have left. Thanks Cindy. ~Stephanie-B >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Projects

Fabulous! I love love love that lentil bead!!!! Lentils are my favorite!!! And your rose cane is great. Very pretty and classic. OH and those Jupiter beads…. how fabulous with the stamped texture. You are a genius!  I was also self taught and scanned the internet ALOT for new ideas and new techniques. I still do but I LOVE Cindy’s site because it’s so much more than instruction (which is excellent) but a community which I was sorely lacking. My coffee and I are here every morning to see the next dose of polyclay fabulousness and I’m SO glad it was your work today because it’s more than beautiful… it’s inspirational! ~Melinda-H >> This comment was originally posted here: Selling Polymer Clay Beads on Etsy

Thanks for replying so quickly and completely to my customer service email questions… not that I would expect anything else from you… I know it’s the way you work and I appreciate it… THANK YOU! ~Michelle-C >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Tutorials

My first butterfly pendant :) It was such fun. Cindy, your tutorials demonstrate clear steps and they’re very easy to follow. ~Phoenix-F >> This comment was originally posted here: Butterfly Jewelry Pendant

Monica, those lentil beads are beautiful! Cindy — reports like this must make you feel fabulous! Mastery of a difficult technique after one video lesson is quite an accomplishment for both the teacher and the student. ~Jocelyn-C >> This comment was originally posted here: Making Lentil Beads

I just love your pendant and i would want to keep it for myself as well. Just another thing for me to try, If only we could make clay hours to do it all in I would make a years supply lol, I have never spent so much time on the computer until I became a member of yours its just great. Cindy you are special. ~Ritzs >> This comment was originally posted here: Butterfly Pendant Jewelry

Hi Cindy, I have only been a member for a few weeks but I look forward to Fridays for another reason now besides the weekend. I enjoy your videos. I’m working on my techniques while narrowing down my many ideas and inspirations. I tend to overwhelm myself with ideas then get stuck in the execution. Your videos keep my exercises short and simple. I bought my supplies before signing up with your network so I have Sculpey III clays. Any conversion information for your color recipes would be helpful. Thanks. Sincerely. ~Juli-R >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Library

It seems that when I see more options, that’s when I too start thinking about even more variations… stretching an idea as far as you can. This includes seeing others’ highlighted works too. Maybe it’s the inspiration, could be including our own “touch” to a project as well. It’s great to be included in the process – being able to give and hear input about upcoming lessons as well. ~DJ >> This comment was originally posted here: Leaf Cane Designs

Cindy – how lovely to see us together! It really was a highlight of the show for me to meet you after following you for the past couple of years. Your online personna is such an inspiration – I can not believe the amount of information you are able to provide and on such a regular basis. You are the Tutor-Queen and it was a real joy to meet you! ~Linda-G >> This comment was originally posted here: Bead Shows

Love the video also and would really love to learn how to make the cord ends. They are so expensive to purchase and sometimes even hard to find in the color of wire you want. I am very interested in any jewelry findings you could help me with. That is an area I will take all the help I can get. Cindy as far as I am concerned anything you want to teach will be more than worth learning. I don’t think that talented imagination of yours knows how to come up with something people wouldn’t love to learn. Count me in YOU TEACH AND I WILL TRY MY BEST TO LEARN IT!!!!!!!! ~Peggy-B >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay and Bali Beads

Great pic Cindy! I agree with everyone else, this is THE place to come for everything clay and we can never thank you enough for your hard work, enthusiasm, and great tips! This is the first site I check every morning (even before my etsy shop)! Keep up the great work! ~Carrie-W >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Blog

Well shoot!  I’m late as always… meant to leave a comment DAYS ago and finally got a free moment… my apologies, Cindy! It was such a treat to spend a bit of time with you, and I came away so impressed by your enthusiam and dedication to polymer artisans the world over. You provide an amazing source of information and inspiration, and it’s all presented with that sweet smile of yours! I wish you all the best and hope to see you again soon. Until then – keep up the fabulous work! ~Julie-P >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Meetup

Cindy thank you soooo much for your videos and all your ready help whenever needed. ~Cathrine-R >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Tutorials

Just to let you all know what an inspiration Cindy has been to me, I taught 2 polymer clay community ed classes last fall.  I am teaching three more in January and Feb; Polymer Clay 101, Steampunk, Skinner Blends. One class is already full. It is nice to have some extra cash to support my PC habit. ~Anna-S >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay 101

I look forward each mornings to reading the blog. It helps make my day a little better. ~Barb-C >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Inspiration

One of the cool things about Kaleidoscope canes is the special effects, like the new shapes that form when combined, and the 3D illusions you get from the blends. This is a pretty complicated technique for one video. I imagine that Cindy will teach us the basics along with numerous tips so that we can make this beautiful type of Kaleidoscope, and do it correctly! From everything I’ve read about and seen on the web, it will take a lot more than one video to make a Sara Shriver or JRB-type cane. Still, we learn more from Cindy with every video. As we get better, she can start to teach us even more difficult techniques. ~Phaedrakat >> This comment was originally posted here: Complex Kaleidoscope Canes

I’ll say it again, “I don’t know what I would do without this site” I wish  you and your husband, with all your talents, all the luck in the world. Oops, all the members too. Love everything about this site.  Luck and Love to everyone. West Palm Beach, FL. ~Helen-S >> This comment was originally posted here: Fundamentals in Polymer Clay

Ah yes, Carol Duvall… She turned me into a crafter. I sure miss her show! On Carol’s show Donna Kato made pc look so easy I went right out and bought a pasta machine and pc. Well, I didn’t have a clue so I put it all away for a few years. I got it all out last year and haven’t looked back. If I hadn’t found Cindy’s site I probably would have put it all back away… So thanks to Carol, and thanks to Cindy!!! ~Lisa-W >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Teaching

Doug is a rock. I am so glad you two met and grew together to come to this point. The help and personable advise you contribute to the polymer clay community is invaluable! ~Shannon-L >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Community
