Polymer Clay Membership SiteARGENTINA: Hi, Cindy, this is my first post, as I am really new to polymer clay (only discovered it this year!). I love all of your tutorials, although I am usually late in trying them out, as I live in Argentina and I can only get my tools and supplies by ordering them online in the US. Just seeing all your clay together (not to mention those beautifully ordered drawers) made my mouth water!. Thanks for bringing polymer clay techniques so clearly to those of us with no possibilities of taking face to face lessons! Please keep them coming! ~Malena-S >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Videos

AUSTRALIA: Dear Cindy, I am very grateful to have had the opportunity to do your online bead course. My problem was that I was overwhelmed by all the reading material available and unable to translate the information into action. I was in a frustrated state of inaction. In Australia there are very few good polymer clay courses and they are expensive. Books do not show you exactly how to do things, just because the amount of pictures available are limited and the subtleties of technique are omitted. Your course however is invaluable. Your manner of tuition is the best that I have encountered. You are clear and concise and not a bit patronising. You are very generous because you give a clear message that these techniques are achievable and you encourage experimentation. I have you there 24 hours a day on video, so that I can recheck my methodology. I am not anxious about experimenting and now I can’t stop. I just finished a beautiful set of beads using translucent clay stained by dehydrating and grinding up the stamens of tiger lilies. To change the look again I added a drop of red food colouring. I couldn’t believe that they worked out so well. My next experiment is with waxed crayon as per your weekly online course. Mosaics are my ultimate goal. There isn’t enough hours in the day!! I look forward to your weekly lessons and will gladly subscribe to any course that you offer. Thank you again. ~Cara-L >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Jewelry

UK: I understand that because PC’s not a mainstream thing here, magazines feel they have to feature beginner-suitable projects, but as Cindy shows, there are a lot of easy-to-do projects that DON’T look like a 7-year-old made them. ~Silverleaf >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay UK

SOUTH AFRICA: Hi Cindy. Have you ever thought about bringing out a book with some of your projects in?  Like a step-by-step book? And also, why not think about making a dvd with some of the projects? I will be the first to buy both. That would really be fantastic. Just a thought……. Thank you for everything you do for our Polymer clay artists, I have learned so much from you already and always look forward to Fridays. Thanks.

FINLAND: Hello Cindy, Thanks for the videos – watching makes such a difference. There are so many ‘how to’ options online, but most are confusing images and text only. Youtube is great but many cannot get the real info over. This system is great. Clever you for doing it! A great way to earn on the internet too! I wish I knew enough of one subject that others want to know about… to do something like that myself! Merry Christmas from -26c snowy Sodankylä, Finland. ~Michelle-R >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Video Library

SOUTH AFRICA: I just want to thank you Cindy for this tutorial. It was super fun and easy to do. I’ve made various items with my cane, like the  Butterfly Princess (added on our Facebook page), and some pendants, which I will add as soon as the pictures have been taken. I am new to this group, and am still trying to find my way around; thanks Cindy for your patience and guidance. I am from South Africa, I believe here are other South Africans, too. Would love to connect with you. ~Lorraine-C >> This comment was originally posted here: Butterfly Wing Cane

INTERNATIONAL: It sure is fun seeing the entries in this “contest”. It is so inspiring to see what can be done with just a few techniques. I am really motivated now to try the torn watercolor beads. The Jupiter beads that everyone entered are just beautiful. Couldn’t pick out a favorite!  It just makes me wish I could play with clay 24/7! Cindy, thanks for doing this! Isn’t it wonderful to have a community that spans continents?!? ~Sue-W >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Bead Giveaway
