Polymer Clay Membership Site

Cindy – Honestly, I would be willing to pay a lot more for my membership! You have so many innovative, creative, and time saving tips that are such a great help! Most of my best selling jewelry has been, in one way or another, inspired by at least one of your videos! ~Carrie-W >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Tutor Videos

I thought at first, I couldn’t afford the monthly videos, but man was I wrong. I hardly notice the cost, and it only comes out once every quarter. The help of actually SEEING what Cindy is doing is beyond words. It’s one thing to tell someone in writing how to do a particular technique, but watching it is so much better. I am proud to say that I have now completed my collection of the videos Cindy has made with my purchase of the beginner’s course. It has been worth EVERY cent. Keep up the outstanding work Cindy and Doug. I’m here for the long haul. ~Ken-H >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Video Library

Really wish I’ve found Cindy’s web site a long time ago as I’ve been reading about polymer clay for over a year, but was always scared to jump into it. Cindy’s videos really made polymer clay a “user friendly” hobby :) ~Rada-F >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Tutorials

Cindy, I can only guess at the number of hours you and Doug put into the videos and website – you’re providing a needed service to the PC community. It’s pretty safe to say that most of us cannot afford to travel to take special classes so it’s wonderful to be able to sit in my jammies at home and learn from you. The best part is being able to view the instructions anytime again to refresh my memory on the technique. Keep up the GREAT instruction work on such timely PC and wire techniques. Best Regards. ~Lynn-V >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Learning

Cindy, you opened up a brave new world for me with the videos and images you and Doug capture. To me, you two should win awards for the way you teach. ~Jocelyn-C >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Tutorials

I was lucky enough to be given a netbook by my family so I can watch Cindy’s fabulous tutorials over and over again right at my work table which is almost like having her right in the room with me!  My only regret is not having joined sooner. ~Susan-B >> This comment was originally posted here: Faux Agates Popular This Week

That is so cool Cindy! I can’t wait to get home and try it! I am really excited about trying that in rainbow colors! Thanks so much for all these awesome videos! I am learning a great deal from them! ~Stephanie-M >> This comment was originally posted here: Skinner Blend Plug

Oh wow how cool! This was a really neat video! I for one prefer the look of the metal leaf to the Jones Tones so this was a good money saving point for me! :) ~KeriLee-S >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Beads

What an informative video! It’s all very well reading about using a tool to buff, but its only when you see how to hold the tool etc it all becomes clear. Thank you Cindy! ~Rachel-W >> This comment was originally posted here: Buffing Polymer Clay Beads

Dear Cindy, I am so fortunate to have found your blog, and I am very grateful that I have been able to enjoy your “Polymer Clay Bead Making for Beginners Course.” I have learned more from your course, and your bonus videos, than I could have ever guessed I would learn. Each of your videos is so jam-packed with information… yet, because you really know how to teach, you make it all seem so simple and doable. You explain, in detail, how every part of each process works. You have taught me what tools are the best to use, and how to use them. You have taught me the differences between each different kind of polymer clay, and the best way to work with each of them. Each time I finish a video that you have made, I go away knowing, without a doubt, how to do what I have just been taught. I now have great confidence in my abilities when I work with my clay, thanks to all that I have learned from watching your videos. Through your videos, I have learned how to avoid many mistakes (after all, you have already made them for me!), and how to make beautiful beads, jewelry, and anything I want to make! Making beads and other projects with polymer clay used to be so mysterious to me, now, thanks to your beginner course, I understand what I am doing, and I just get to have all kinds of fun!!! I can hardly wait to so what more you have in store for all of us! Sorry… I have no complaints!!!  Sincerely. ~Cindy-E >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Tutorials

Cindy, I have commented about your presentations before, but one point that I believe has been missed is the verbal aspect of learning which your videos provide. Very important for those who learn more easily by hearing. ~MJ >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Video Lessons

Hi Cindy: As you know I recently bought your Beginner’s course and I find it is just great. All those hints and tips make a great difference for someone like me just learning how to work with polymer clay (don’t find these in books). Some of us are more visual and need to really see how to do it rather than read on how it needs to be done. I find it just amazing that I can get a video course and see it as many times as I want and stop it, go back, etc. I started making jewelry as a hobby about 5 years ago and think that being able to create our own beads, pendants, etc. in the colors of our choice is amazing. The other thing I like about it is that creating something really opens up your mind and imagination as to what we are capable of. Keep up your great work and please let me know when your next course will be available as I will certainly buy it. Thank you so much. ~Gail-F >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Tutorials on Video

I have enjoyed the videos! They are well worth the money. ~Melinda-M >> This comment was originally posted here: Beads and Beading

Waaaaaaaaaah!!!!! Sniffle sniff….sigh. I miss my videos. :( I cant wait to get back and get caught up again. XOXO ~Jamie-H >> This comment was originally posted here: Pillow Beads for Your Jewelry Projects

Thanks Cindy for another terrific video tutorial. The information about the silverspoon bails was really informative. All the best. ~Cara-L >> This comment was originally posted here: Silver Spoon Bails for Jewelry

Yes, Christi is fun and has some great ideas in her books … I have several … they still don’t hold a candle to Cindy’s videos. I  guess it is the difference between the written and the visual. I’ll go for the visual any time. Wish I could attend conferences and workshops. Can’t do that so Cindy’s tutorials are the absolute best way for me to go. No one does them better! ~Carolyn-F >> This comment was originally posted here: Baking Beads

Cindy, When I emailed you to ask why I did not receive my weekly Friday video and recipe, I was jumping the gun I forgot it is Thursday not Friday. What can I say, waiting for your videos is like waiting to open Christmas presents. Thanks. ~Paige-F >> This comment was originally posted here: Faux Agate Video Tutorial

I will also be rocken this weekend. I keep saying I love this tute… but it’s true every week. ~Pollyanna >> This comment was originally posted here: How the Rocker Bead Got It’s Name

I tend to feel the same way about our lessons that Elizabeth-K and Elizabeth-S have shared. The videos are structured enough that we have concise direction, but also give enough freedom to allow our own ideas to take shape. This is a really important balance, having practical information to explore through without losing the basics that make a technique work. I really love that wandering is encouraged both by Cindy and the supportive blog community too! More ideas, generate more ideas. The roughly 10 minute time frame works as well, we can all allow time in our day for that. Any longer and I could easily see myself putting off tutorials until I could fit them in. ~DJ >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Micromesh Sanding Tutorial
