Member Benefits 040-2: Video Learning

Polymer Clay Membership Site
I guarantee, and everyone here will back me up, that you can’t go wrong in becoming a member. So many have said they thought they knew how to do a technique Cindy has done a tutorial on, only to watch her way and realize she does it better and/or faster. The video quality cannot be beat – all shots are up close, in focus, and of terrific quality so you actually see exactly what it is she’s doing, in addition to her easy to understand, step-by-step instructions. She has taken so many of us from “fumbling newbies” to actual artistic creators in such short periods of time it’s almost unreal, and I know a lot of us wouldn’t be anywhere near where we are today if not for her tutorials. One of her motto’s is “I learned by making the mistakes – Now you don’t have to” and that’s exactly what she does – she tries things out and presents them to us after they pass the Cindy test! So that small amount every three months is actually a great money, and time, saver! I hope you decide to join us! ~Tanya-L >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Color Recipes and Videos

This membership has been vital to me and the cost very, very manageable, even though I could say I definitely have a low income. Actually, in comparison to the actual supplies and extras that I have purchased for this art form, the tutorials are the real bargain!!! I love Cindy’s voice, too, and her method of teaching us. I have bought a few other tutorials elsewhere on the web when there is a little extra money available and while they are very good written instructions, they just do not compare in any way with Cindy’s and Doug’s videos in quality, thoroughness or bang for my buck. I will be forever grateful that I found this website. Thank you so much, Cindy and Doug! ~Becky-C >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Tutor Videos

I absolutely agree. I’m a teacher too and I can recognize good teaching. Cindy is the best teacher. I’ve watched a lot of other jewelry videos and read books but it makes a big difference watching Cindy. You can pause the video and actually go along with her. She makes things so simple and easy you simply get encouraged and motivated to try it out. And Doug’s photos are amazing – the clarity and angles. It’s certainly worth every cent and the cost is a real deal. I would encourage anyone to definitely sign on and buy the membership. I have bought the whole collection and I’m so glad I did. ~Cheryl-H >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Tutorials

I had such a fun weekend doing the faux dichroic technique. They came out beautifully. In the past when I was working with the mica powders I was actually throwing them away when I got it in other places where I did not want it. Why O’ Why do all the people who tell you about it in books, not tell you that you can get rid of the mistakes so easily. I love your video tutorials Cindy. ~Karon-C >> This comment was originally posted here: Faux Dichroic Glass Mica Technique

I owe about 90% of my success to Cindy’s video tutorials, and the other 10% to having every polymer clay book published.  I think it’s a disease. The Cindy part has been a big inspiration though. It’s like a kick in the muse every Friday. ~Bonnie-K >> This comment was originally posted here: Cutie-Pie Cookie Cutter Canes

Cindy, I just watched the butterfly wing cane video.  How wonderful!  I cannot tell you how much I appreciate your teaching style. I felt like we were at the same kitchen table.  I’m looking forward to learning much from you. Big Smiles. ~Judy-E >> This comment was originally posted here: Blue Morpho Butterfly Wing Cane Tutorial

I LOVE the videos!!! Please don’t stop! I have learned SO much and I am a visual learner so the videos are great! You inspire me to be neat too. Your workspace seems so clean. ~Kim-M >> This comment was originally posted here: Bead Magazine Tutorials vs Web Video Lessons

I really love the way the whole clay community shares knowledge and techniques, but there are so many drawbacks to the freebies on the net. Often the sound is muffled; important info is left out or you just can’t see properly what is done. I’ve watched some that fail to show what the final result yields! If a small fee saves time; frustration; AND builds a huge library of accessible information, it’s fulfilling an educational need. Not to mention the community that forms because of this commitment to quality. Cindy, your site is also a wonderful way to connect with many other creative people and offers a great solution to those of us who aren’t able (distance or $$) to attend real life workshops or classes. I think you have such a dedicated following because we sense that dedication in you. ~DJ >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Tutor

Thank you Cindy! I knew you would make it soooooo much easier to understand. I get it now! I can’t wait to practice. I’ve watched so many other people demonstrate this technique but it never made sense to me. I had a mental block. But your teaching method is so clear and logical and I can also replay the video anytime I need clarity. Fantastic! ~Cara-L >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Lessons

It is such a good feeling to have our work posted by Cindy. It’s like when we were in school and the teacher put something of ours up on the bulletin board. I would know virtually nothing about polymer clay techniques if it weren’t for Cindy’s videos and all the work that Doug does behind the scenes. Thank you both so much. I do appreciate you more than you realize. ~Carolyn-F >> This comment was originally posted here: Blend and Switch Technique

Thank you for showing that video as I had no idea on how to handle that. I have that tool and have never used the buffing wheel. Now I have a reason to use it. Thanks again. ~Pat-O >> This comment was originally posted here: Buffing Polymer Clay Beads

Thank you so much for showing this technique in video.  I did see you explain the technique on your HUB. I really have gotten much more now from seeing it done… in action. Hugs to you. ~Cindy-E >> This comment was originally posted here: Image Transfer To Polymer Clay

First of all, I want to thank you Cindy again for all the help you gave me and how patient you were when I had some trouble with my username and password. Well I’m all squared away now and very happy with my charter membership and am enjoying all the videos I couldn’t get access to before. I occasionally feel like I need some inspiration at times and these videos and color recipes are definitely useful. I encourage everyone who hasn’t signed up yet to do so – it really is a great deal. Plus Cindy is very prompt at answering one’s questions / concerns about this addictive medium. ~Maria-C >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Tutor Library

I looked at the “library”, and since Vol. 016, there’s been a metal or wire working tute once a month. At first I wanted all the videos to be polymer clay, since there are lots of wire/metal tutorials available out there, and not so many for PC. But the majority of the members here seem to want a bit of metal in their tutorials. I’ve come to love Cindy’s videos and teaching style, so I don’t mind one of the monthly videos being metal. In fact, I end up loving the tutes, even if it’s something I already know how to do. Cindy always manages to teach me something. ~Phaedrakat >> This comment was originally posted here: Making Findings for Polymer Clay Jewelry

Brilliant! Artistic! Fabulous! I love it! Great work Cindy.. Doug.. Your video’s are the Bomb! I can’t hardly wait to get started on this one :) ~Brenda-M >> This comment was originally posted here: Blend and Switch Technique

Thanks for the great video. I look forward to seeing the next one. ~Joyce-S >> This comment was originally posted here: Beginner Bead Jewelry Makin

Cindy’s site is a wonderful place to be inspired … you can’t help but get ideas for jewelry … her weekly tutorial videos really can’t be beat. ~Ken-H >> This comment was originally posted here: Jenny Rohrs Craft Test Dummies Review

I have not been very vocal on the site – I am a new graduate from nursing school, and was still in school when I joined. Then I have been busy with boards and job hunting, but I do have some extra time now to go back and try out all the techniques I missed. These videos are terrific, and at a super value for at home tutoring. I couldn’t believe how easy it was to join and to get the videos with no hassle. Cindy is a great teacher, and everyone here is so helpful as well! Thank you so much for your input and for welcoming me to the site. ~Catherine-D >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Tutorial Videos

As sad as it was I still watched this tute twice without sound and enjoyed it. Now that tells you just how awesome Cindy and Doug are. I love the copper tape idea because I love Copper it is my favorite. So thank you so much for the silent movie Cindy and Doug. I will be sure to let you know how the one with sound is, when my hubby fixes the computer. Although I am sure I know already!!!!!! To be continued later today. ~Peggy-B >> This comment was originally posted here: Pendants Wrapped with Copper Foil

I LOVE your videos. Yesterday I went out for a Christmas lunch with a couple of friends and gave them each a bracelet I’d made and they went wild!  Also, I was wearing a necklace I’d made and the waitresses all wanted to know where I got it!  Do I feel ‘artistic’ or what?? ~Isabel-H >> This comment was originally posted here: Sanding with Micromesh Abrasives
