Member Benefits 044-3: Video Learning

Polymer Clay Membership SiteHi Cindy, I absolutely love your site and your videos are AMAZING!! What a difference from trying to learn something from a book. A big huge heartfelt THANK YOU for taking the time putting these videos together for all of us! ~Donna-P >> This comment was originally posted at this link: Blend and Switch Technique

You summed it up so well, Jeanne. It’s funny you mentioned your pc books – I have them, too, bunches of them. I pulled one out the other day to look something up and realized how dusty they have become. My books are and will always be treasures but I think my learning style meshes so well with Cindy’s teaching style that I depend less on written info. I’ve said it before but I love that I can plunk down in front of the computer, for the whole day if I want to and work on learning something new. ~Elizabeth-S >> This comment was originally posted at this link: Polymer Clay Tutor Lessons

Thanks from me for doing this Cindy, and I am sure you will get many more thanks from the newbies and lurkers out there who haven’t a clue what they are missing. I was sent your link to the free tear drop skinner blend a couple of years ago and was overwhelmed by the video quality and teaching method so joined up and have never been disappointed. ~Lawrence-S >> This comment was originally posted at this link: Teardrop Blend Shift Video

Thank you for the great videos you send to us each week, I have learned so much from your site that I don’t have to spend the big bucks on the books. ~Elly-M >> This comment was originally posted at this link: Diamond Pattern Ikat Cane

I have to confess, I have been played around with this technique and made 6 rings doing so, before watching this tutorial. I am one of those type people that can look at things, and almost figure out how the technique was done. I gave up on it because, I just couldn’t get it quite right. I could not get my sizes right nor could I get the band wires even. I do like the way they look though. I have to say, after watching this tutorial, I saw what I was doing wrong. Cindy Saves the day! ~Brenda-M >> This comment was originally posted at this link: Wire Wrapped Coin Bead Rings

All the videos I have seen have been helpful. Thanks for all the information! ~Marilyn-N >> This comment was originally posted at this link: Polymer Clay Tutorials

Wow, what a fantastic lineup! I absolutely love canes, so I’ll admit it. I’m most excited about the Kaleidoscope cane video. I am excited to see it simplified Cindy-style (thanks for making it first!) I know I’m going to love every one of these videos, though. Gorgeous butterfly earrings, an inlay technique with realistic results, and homemade earwires to make our earrings stand out from the rest — it’s all good!  I’m so happy that I finally dove in and became a member. It really is true what everyone says about the quality of the videos and instruction. I find myself excited when Fridays come, just like I know everyone else does. I only became a member last month, but I am already addicted to Cindy’s videos. I have 2 back issues already. I just watched Vol. #9 ( it features the oh-so-amazing Lietz teardrop method for quicker skinner blends, cool Mobius Beads, an awesome Extruder Mod Cane, and some absolutely adorable Trumpet Flower Beads.) There’s so much stuff here to feed creativity! Anyway, I am looking forward to all these amazing projects in store for us. Thanks, Cindy! ~Phaedrakat >> This comment was originally posted at this link: Easy Kaleidoscope Canes

I have been so busy the past few months with moving and Christmas and all, I have hardly had time to look at the videos. I was thinking about just letting my subscription go but I watched this video and the one where you make the roses from the polymerized fabric. Oh Cindy, you have done it again. LOL.  I am all fired up again, can’t wait to try these out and am definitely renewing again. I don’t know WHAT I was thinking in even considering letting my subscription go. I know, I do have those common sense lapses. :) Thanks for hooking me again Cindy. And I do mean that in a good way. ~Laurel-B >> This comment was originally posted at this link: Polymerized Cloth Mixed Media

Wonderful ideas in this video, Cindy!  I am one of those who was mistakenly thinking that a “part” was a scored section of the clay, so, whew, good to realize that is not what that meant! I had even read about taking the little squares, etc, somewhere, but that had not really transferred to my brain and I needed to see your video to realize it! I, too, like the idea of the little baggies of leftover color with the names / numbers written on the front. Organization does not come naturally to me (you should see my house — or not, lol), so this video will be a huge help to me. Still thinking about Silverleaf’s idea of magnetic chips, too, for visual help in combining colors. Can make them thick enough to write the card recipe number on the side, too, so can just snatch up the recipe card out of the box I am soon going to have when I am ready to mix up a batch of colors for a project. Super! I get so excited about these tutorials and can’t wait to get to my clay, but I am supposed to be working now, so back at it I go. Thanks again for this wonderful video, Cindy! ~Becky-C >> This comment was originally posted at this link: Mixing Custom Color Recipes

Love Love Love just as I knew I would. You always take something I already know and make it even more fun to work with. I just love your pendant and earrings. Who am I kidding I love it all. You are amazing and Doug’s filming even enhances it more. So another Grand Slam to add to my list of treasured tutes. Thank you both so very much. Love and Uuuuggggs. ~Peggy-B >> This comment was originally posted at this link: Rolled Mokume Gane Cane

This was an amazing month of videos. I loved making the Iris flowers and look forward to making the Peacock Feather Cane. I can’t wait to see what you have planned for us next month. You and Doug are the best, thanks for providing a place to get inspiration, support and fun!!  Your tutorials are the best. ~Jeanne-C >> This comment was originally posted at this link: Polymer Clay Video Library

PHENOMENAL Cindy!!  Simply outstanding! Love the technique, love the vid. Great filming and edit work Doug. You guys are a blessing. ~Michelle-A >> This comment was originally posted at this link: Polymer Clay Crackle Paints

Great video, Cindy!! You are a very pretty woman and very pleasant. Your voice is beautiful almost “singing”. The video was extremely helpful. Thank you!! ~Neha-M >> This comment was originally posted at this link: Cindy Lietz Studio Tour

We really are lucky to be members of such an inspiring site. These videos are definitely a highlight of my Fridays! ~Maria-C >> This comment was originally posted at this link: Bead Cones Polymer Clay Tutorial

Hi Cindy – I have watched the videos that have been added to my membership account so far, and am very impressed and enjoyed them all. They made me wish that I had signed up so much earlier! ~Jean-G >> This comment was originally posted at this link: Polymer Clay Lessons

These little snowmen are so adorable. Cindy, you’re always on the top of my list for every Friday, even though I have soooo little time these days to do this. We are packing to move to a new home and everything is in disarray, but I do faithfully watch each video. Hope to be able to actually do some of the wonderful tutorials soon. Thanks for being there and lending a spot of continuity to this otherwise insane world that has suddenly become my life. ~Karonkay >> This comment was originally posted at this link: Snowman Beads for Christmas

Hi Cindy, I just had a chance to watch your snowman tutorial. It was darling. Thanks again for your many projects. I realize from my own teaching, demos and projects I’ve done for publications and websites the INCREDIBLE amount of preparation that goes into a production, no matter how simple it sounds. I wonder how many others out there that are on the receiving end, realize how much work is involved. Thanks again for going those extra miles (kms) to produce straightforward tutorials that are easy to follow in smoothly flowing videos. Kudos to you and Doug. Looking forward to more great tutorials. From a fellow Canuck (in Winterpeg). ~Pat-S >> This comment was originally posted at this link: Polymer Clay Tutorials
