Member Benefits 023-3: Video Learning

Polymer Clay Membership Site

Hi Cindy! I am enjoying your videos and learning so much! Thank you for doing this program…I live in a part of the US where getting to polymer clay classes is not easy, and often very expensive. Even though I have a number of books on polymer clay, your video tutorials are far more educational and therefore a much better value. Thanks very much, ~Sally-M >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Video Classes

Cindy – I just watched the Mica Shift video. As I got into polymer clay a year ago, every time I looked for a tutorial, your site popped up.  I resisted joining for a long time, who knows why. For the last few months it has been such fun to work with you! Every time I see a new video I get great new ideas from you. This week, using the right pearl clay, and using a rounded bottle for the cutting were inspirational. Thanks so much! ~Jacqui-T >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Techniques

WOW! I can’t believe how simple this is! Before your video, I was trying to picture how you were going to do it, but I never pictured what you showed us today! If anyone is on the fence about subscribing, let me tell you, it is well worth it! ~Joyce-R >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Kaleidoscope

Cindy, Thank you so much for providing live tutorials and not just more pictures with written instructions. I am very much a visual and audio learner, so this is perfect. I have been interested in polymer clay for many years, but intimidated by what seemed a difficult art. You make it seem so simple and possible. Your fan from Wyoming. ~Kelly-A >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Bead Giveaway Contest

I’ve only been making beads out of clay for a couple of months, but I feel the videos in your Polymer Clay Beginners Course where just great for someone breaking into the craft. Some of the topics I had already gleaned from the Internet from various sources but it REALLY helped to have a high quality video to SHOW you up close and personal about the topics you discussed. I definitely feel the series is a bargain and would recommend it. I subscribed to your weekly videos and have made beads from many of the tutorials. I look forward to the new video that comes out each week. I’m just beginning to experiment with mixing colors, so I believe the recipe cards will come in really handy in the future as well. Keep up the fantastic work! ~June-W >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Beads

Cindy, I have been trying to decide what my favorite video has been, and I think it has to be the water color beads. Or maybe the faux raku. But then again it could be the gold leaf and alcohol inks one. I could also say it was the mica shift technique. No no I think it is the variegated rose. Yes that’s it. I think… ~Tiffany-M >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Videos

Thanks so much, Cindy!  I knew how to make loops, but I always made it harder to do than it had to be. Now, thanks to you and your great video, it will all be easier!  Thank you! Hugs to you :) ~Cindy-E >> This comment was originally posted here: Jewelry Wireworking

Thanks Cindy. A couple times I got a long string in the middle of the flower cane that came out of the extruder (because I didn’t listen when you said don’t use too much clay for this cane) and when I looked at it, it looked liked a teeny star so I sliced that and used it on the beads also. That’s what the black spots with the white circles are on some of the beads. I didn’t roll the cane pieces into the beads, I left them sitting on top for depth so you could see the white bead underneath. You were very accurate in your video about making sure the clay is conditioned really well. Good thing I can keep replaying your videos, once is not enough to pick up all the things that you say that are so important. ~Bonnie-K >> This comment was originally posted here: Extruder Flower Cane Technique

Hi Cindy, As well as being thoroughly enjoyable, your videos are very well made, concise and to the point. Your explanations and demonstrations are very clear and you always offer little extras. Instructions are easy to follow. I think your beginner’s course is so thorough that it’s relatively easy to progress quickly once you’ve been through it. So, more of the same please and more advanced techniques would be welcome. In terms of improvements, I can honestly say that there is little that comes to mind, you’re doing such a great job. I occasionally have a question but I usually find the answer in one of your videos or in the member benefits question and answer sections. I only just started applying what I’m learning from your videos and what I’ve tried works, so there you go! I just made some beads and tried out a few canes and I’m going to make some jewellery with them (I’m a jewellery designer/maker with a graphic design background). Can’t wait to try all the techniques out and experiment more, I’m falling in love with this polymer clay material. I want to try combining polymer clay and silver (both traditional silversmithing and silver clay). I think the combination would be interesting. Perhaps something for you to ponder? In terms of pricing you are competitive and offer good value for money. I think this is a strong advantage over other online tutorials that charge the price of a complete book on polymer clay for one or two tutorials. In that case I usually opt for the book! I think this competitive edge will bring you more business, so good luck with that! Last but not least, well done and thanks. I look forward to my next tutorial. All the best, ~Naum-G >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Beads and Canes

I just became a member even though I really can’t afford to spend much money since I am on a small Social Security check each month. I think that your videos are great and easily understood.  There is so much to absorb on your site, I don’t know if I am really getting to every area. Thank you for your help and for this valuable service. ~Dorothy-H >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Tutorials

What a great little tutorial. Fabulous tip about the squaring up, never even occurred to me. I’m learning a lot from your videos, thanks so much. ~Haffinia >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Tutorials

Very nice! I’m so glad I am finally a member – I can enjoy this video when it comes out (as well as the wonderful ones I’ve already seen.) I’m still angry with myself for not joining sooner (and missing out on the incredible value), but I suppose I’ll get over it (slowly…) as each new video comes out! I love the look of Kaleidoscope canes, this should be fun! ~Phaedrakat >> This comment was originally posted here: Kaleidoscope Polymer Clay Canes

Me too! I will be gone Friday thru Sunday late afternoon. And always very tired after a trip. Probably won’t get a chance to work on until Monday. That will make waiting for the next Friday a whole lot quicker. Always have to find the bright side. I just love all your video’s Cindy. Thanks so much. ~Peggy-B >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Tutorials

Hi Cindy and all. The March tuts are all I want, can’t wait. Have threatened myself to make Faux Opal, so now I can’t wait for this tut, it is so much clearer watching your videos that even reading the books on things. So roll on March, even tho I don’t want to wish my days away, I can’t wait til we all get it under the belt, so to speak, from Cindy’s Tuts. Bye. Love, ~Elizabeth-K >> This comment was originally posted here: Vol-022 Polymer Clay Tutorials

I’m looking forward to seeing how to form the squash bead as I really like that style. I made a bone cane and my DH (who doesn’t automatically say he likes whatever I make) said it looked real. High praise. I love the videos. Thank you Cindy! ~Rose-M >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Tribal Jewelry

Wow is all I can say, what a way to kick off a new year of tutorial vids. The tribal pattern is something I’ve been interested in since the polls on what techniques to film next. ~Ken-H >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Tribal Canes

Cindy, I’d love to see the inlay technique. The box is wonderful, too, and hope you will plan to show us how to make that as well. The instruction in your videos is very clear and easy to follow. ~Sharon-F >> This comment was originally posted here: Faux Turquoise Polymer Clay

Love the way these videos are introduced, pre-prep style, over the last few months. Very motivating. Friday is a big day around here, lol. ~Jocelyn-C >> This comment was originally posted here: Tribal Cane Polymer Clay Tutorial

Cindy, what a creative idea! Love the interchangeable pendant. Great video! ~Sue-W >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Video Tutorial

I love the inked butterfly earrings and would love a video on them.  Thanks for all the great tips and ideas.  I also really want to thank you for your generosity in promoting other artists.  I look forward to Fridays to see what new project you’ve thought up for us. Thanks! ~Beverly-L >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Butterfly Earrings
