Member Benefits 024-4: Tutoring Support

Polymer Clay Membership Site

I’m looking forward to spending some time making those calla lilies Cindy. And btw – thank you for all the work you do helping us. I know I would not have been able to accomplish what I have done in such a short time if it weren’t for you and your tutorials and generous help. Thank you. ~Aims >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Library

I held out for quite a while thinking it was an additional expense I could not afford. Finally decided that an extra $9.95 was not going to break me and I’m so happy that I did join. It is sometimes the little things you do that make your projects look so much better and Cindy gives us all her tricks of the trade. I’ve made buttons before but never made them using Saran Wrap over the clay. What a difference. Another favorite was using the Adirondack inks for the Jellyroll Cane. Nice to have another use for my craft supplies. I would urge anyone to give up one movie a month, or one magazine, or anything else that equates to about $3.50 a month and join in the fun. I’ve been following your site for quite a while now Cindy and thank you for being so generous with your free advice. It must give you a sense of great satisfaction knowing you are helping others enjoy their craft. You are much appreciated. ~Janet-A >> This comment was originally posted here: Leopard Cane Tutorial Video

Being a member on this site is the best thing I ever did. ~Helen-S >> This comment was originally posted here: Jewelry Making Tutorials

I’m really enjoying the videos and the blog, feel like I’ve signed up for a bit of info and instead have received a wealth of knowledge in return. With the ideas generated by the members (such a supportive bunch); of course everything you’re offering from basic practical tips to beautiful, current techniques… I’m truly inspired and feel so fortunate to have come across your site. Thanks again for the wonderful teaching tool you’ve created. You share your knowledge in such a professional, yet warm way – the care you take in what you offer your members is highlighted through your sense of detail and attention given to every inquiry. This has been just what I needed, what a great experience! Bye for now. ~Danette-K >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay

I wish I could borrow the creative part of your brain for just a little while so I could see how your mind completes one beautiful idea and then morphs it into something completely different in the blink of an eye. This came to you while you were cleaning up your work space no less! Since we can’t get into your head, you will just have to keep those creative juices flowing and continue to allow us to be part of the magic. ~Elizabeth-S >> This comment was originally posted here: Butterfly Jewelry Pendant

Ditto. This has fast become one of the few things I must do every morning. Coffee, email, Cindy’s polymer clay site just to see what’s new… sometimes I don’t even do the email.. just coffee and Cindy to calm my hectic whirlwind. Cindy Lietz’s talent, know-how and willingness to share it all, combined with this supportive, inquisitive group of artists, new and old makes an incredibly unique, enjoyable, need-to-have-in-my-life place. I can’t thank you all enough! Fabulous!!! Terribly interested to actually see how someone else makes a flower cane… especially you Cindy. Incredibly excited about the graffiti beads… trying to figure it out before tomorrow but just can’t seem to do it. I know that as soon as I see you do it, it will seem just so easy and I will smack my forehead and utter the proverbial “duh”. Until tomorrow! :) ~Melinda-H >> This comment was originally posted here: Graffiti Beads Flower Canes

Cindy – I must tell you that I find it thrilling to be in touch with you personally – it is like having an audience with the Pope! ~Susan-B >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Fossil Shell Beads

Cindy, the best thing about your site is the continuing support. If I try one of your techniques and have a problem with it, I can just ask questions here and I know they will be answered. Everyone’s so willing to share their experiences and advice and ideas. It’s awesome. :) ~Silverleaf >> This comment was originally posted here: Fundamentals in Polymer Clay

Cindy, I think it’s awesome how forthcoming you are here with the disclosure. You’re such an amazing lady; a genuine inspiration in your work (beautiful quality), your hard work (the sheer quantity), and your work ethic (such an honest, go-getter, who helps everyone despite juggling so many things)!  Wait, work, work, and work? Luckily, you also get to play, play, play with clay! Yep, I know. The last part was dumb, dumb, dumb! My back needs to feel better soon so I can get out of bed and DO something! ~Phaedrakat >> This comment was originally posted here: Bead Jewelry Making

Sarah – whilst there is no question that you would benefit from subscribing to Cindy’s videos, in fact if you spend a few hours (yes a few hours) on the site you will find you will learn so very much. I recommend, too, that you not only read the comments from the community, but also contribute with questions, because without a doubt any learning problems you have will be answered by community members or indeed by Cindy herself. What I have done, whilst not purchasing the videos regularly, is to tell as many people as I can about Cindy’s site in the hope that they will buy from her. That way you help her whilst she is helping you. ~Penny-V >> This comment was originally posted here: Glow in the Dark Jellyroll Cane

I just recently fell in love with drusy stones and have been trying to figure out how to make faux drusy stones out of polymer. I love the way they look like the crystal color is bursting out of the stone. I would love a tutorial on that, along with the other faux stones. I really love your tutorials and look forward to your newsletter every week. Thanks so much! ~Beverly-L >> This comment was originally posted here: Hollow Polymer Clay “Puffy” Beads

Cindy, like everyone else here, I find your innovation and originality astounding. You keep coming up with these fantastic ideas! It’s a gift. So ‘yes’ from me too, please, to the hammered metal (copper or galvanized steel) bezel for April. Thanks, ~Mary-U >> This comment was originally posted here: Hammered Metal Bezels

Cindy – Thanks for showing us other peoples work too. It’s so interesting to see other peoples interpretations of your lessons! I just love our clay community!!! Keep On Claying. ~Lisa-W >> This comment was originally posted here: Interchangeable Pendants

Too much! Oh, Cindy, another winner. But, golleeeeeee, I want to try everything you post and there don’t seem to be enough hours in the day! ~Carolyn-F >> This comment was originally posted here: Scrap Polymer Clay

I vote yes to anything Cindy offers to teach us. The feed back that I get from projects I make with her tutorials is amazing. Keep them coming Cindy! ~Brenda-M >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Flower Canes

Gosh! Thanks all. I am glad you liked my stone and glad you liked the tutorial. I didn’t even know Cindy had spotlighted this. I have to chuckle though because as Cindy can tell you. I really haven’t been doing this all that long either. About a year and a half.  That’s how fast you can get good with Cindy’s excellent instructions and all the wonderful support from all the great members on here. Thanks again for all the compliments.  It sure makes a gal feel good. ~Laurel-B >> This comment was originally posted here: Faux Pretty in Pink Jewelry Stones

Well you sure got me! I think my heart is still in my stomach! That was a good one though, You definitely had me going. I hope you never decide to stop teaching, you have an incredible gift for it, and with all the books I’ve purchased none of them come close to explaining things the way you do. I know I’ve said it many times, but I’m gonna say it again, Cindy you rock!!! ~Tiffany-M >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Tutor Cindy Lietz

>> Wow!!!  What a great idea. It’s wonderful especially to hear from all of you when our pieces are featured in the spotlight. Praise and critique is good. It’s very encouraging and most of all we are learning from each other. Cindy, you are an absolutely fabulous teacher; not only with the wonderful, clear way you impart your knowledge but also the encouragement and the motivation you give to all of us. I am so glad I came upon your site. ~Cheryl-H >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Bead Giveaway Contest

It is such a treasure to see what creative people there are on this list and what a fantastic teacher we get to learn from. Every Friday my, computer is on early to see what exciting thing I get to learn! ~Kerri-C >> This comment was originally posted here: Faux Opals

Lanyard Tut. Oh well can’t please everyone all the time, and only some people, some of the time. There is always something to be picked up with every tut even though you’ve done it before. But as I say I’m happy with whatever Cindy is teaching here. So there’s always  that time in the future, when it can come up again. Love. ~Elizabeth-K >> This comment was originally posted here: Beaded Lanyards

Cindy you are so good to us, thank you for not starving us of our fix ;) ~Cara-H >> This comment was originally posted here: Weekly Polymer Clay Tutorials

Love the information you added to each video. I now know what kind of torch to look for that will fit my needs. THANK YOU AND DOUG BOTH  for giving us more than we paid for once again. I will be headed into town later today to pick a few items up and see if I can’t do some advertising for the worlds best tutorial duo. Uuuuuuugggs. ~Peggy-B >> This comment was originally posted here: Making Jewelry Headpins
