Hello, dear Cindy: I just wanted to tell you how fantastic YOU are. I was intrigued by an offer from another polymer clay instructor and paid $36 for a 40 minute video… which YOU would have easily, and I mean easily, covered in 9 minutes flat. WOW, what a value YOU offer!!!! Then I tried a PDF lesson, which, fortunately cost “only” $12. Well, maybe I am really stupid, because I was not able to follow the instructions. I think I’ll just stick with YOU! And that’s that! YOU are fabulous, your instructions are clear, precise and to the point and can be easily followed. Thank you and Doug, YOU ARE THE BEST!!!!! With very best regards, Gratefully. ~Christl-P >> Original comment was posted here: Leopard Cane Tutorial Video

I began beading about 7 years ago with a love for natural stone beads and jewelry making. I recently developed an interest in polymer clay as a way to enhance my jewelry designs. The versatility of polymer clay and the endless possibilities for color blends and designs are truly unique to this medium.  I have also been very fortunate to find talented polymer clay artists such as Cindy Lietz who graciously share their skills by teaching new artists the basics and beyond to make learning new techniques fun and easy. I look forward to sitting at my computer every Friday to see my new video tutorial and color recipes and refer back to the tutorials often when starting new projects. My inventory of polymer clay and clay tools are quickly growing to match my bead collection! ~Ann-P >> Original comment was posted here: Polymer Clay Color Recipes

Oh my goodness, Cindy. I LOVE your videos. I just became a member, and my only complaint is that I didn’t do it when I first started working with clay. You are amazing. I can’t wait to try these flowers. Thanks so much for sharing your work. ~Johnnie-C >> Original comment was posted here: Dogwood Flower Pendant Project

Hi Cindy, As a new member I have learned so much and really appreciate all that you do.  You’re a great instructor and your hubby is really great at filming everything in closeup detail. Thank you both. ~Linda-H >> Original comment was posted here: Polymer Clay Library

Awesome video and technique! Thank you Cindy and Doug. This is another shining example of the extraordinary tutorials you guys make. I can’t wait to try — it seems pretty simple, and yet the results look intricate and detailed. It’s gonna be fun, experimenting with various leaves, and using different colors to antique them. I’m imagining all kinds of fun effects! Thanks again! ~Phaedrakat >> Original comment was posted here: Polymer Clay Tutorials

Cindy your videos are definitely quality and have helped me rapidly advance my skills! ~Carol-W >> Original comment was posted here: How the Rocker Bead Got Its Name

Hi Cindy… I’m so glad you made the video about Dremel tools. I got a brand new one for Christmas and was just waiting for a good reason to use it! I love all your videos and your articles. I’m waiting till payday to subscribe and I will let you know how I like the rest of the course. Thanks again for helping all us Newbies. ~Suanough >> Original comment was posted here: Polymer Clay Beginner

Thanks for making my morning coffee taste so good, lol.  I enjoy your tutorials so much that I have to start disciplining myself to stop watching and start making.  Lol. ~Melodie-F >> Original comment was posted here: Reducing Polymer Canes

Today working on Johhny Jump Ups and its amazing how a person can work from past issues to the current. I’m trying to think of all of your training you’ve done to do these series. Surely you have taken speech and production etc etc., to gloriously make your own business. Cudos to you Cindy. I’m fascinated by what you do and to also get your family involved. Thanks so much for this uplifting lesson. Sorry so chatty. ~Patty-J >> Original comment was posted here: Tear Drop Skinner Blend Method

Cindy – I am having fun making the zebra canes. Also tried the butterfly wing cane yesterday and it is very pretty. Have started baking for an hour and using the tent method.  Experiencing more with your colors.  Thank you for providing such great videos. ~Cindy-P >> Original comment was posted here: Blue Morpho Butterfly Wing Cane Video

I have to say that Cindy’s videos have been the best buy ever, and I have NO regrets about buying them. ~Koolbraider >> Original comment was posted here: Polymer Clay Art Sheets

Thanks for this tute Cindy. I’ve liked the look of Heishi beads for a while now and am glad to see how simple you’ve made it to make them. Your example necklace is just beautiful. I really like how you combined the different elements together and the matching earrings are the perfect touch. Like Sherry said, it would be great to have a tute on using the various jewelry components. I am a very visual person and learn so much easier if I can see it being done. Thanks again for all you do Cindy, I really appreciate you. And Doug, And Willow :) ~Angela-M >> Original comment was posted here: Faux Coral Heishi Beads

Way to go Willow. Your spoon told a story like no other. You have the imagination of a true artist. You tell your stories not through words but through creations with your hands from your mind. I love what you you did with the polymer clay the story behind the spoon. AWESOME!!! Cindy the tutorial was great, love the Celtic knot… lovely month. Then of course we can’t forget Doug. None of this would be possible without Doug. Thank you for this fantastic filming week after week. THANK YOU ALL LIETZ FAMILY!!!! ~Peggy-B >> Original comment was posted here: Knotted Celtic Heart Beads

Unbelievable! If you set these in a field of clover one would be hard pressed to identify which are nature’s and which are polymer clay. Also, as Peggy said, the filming just gets better and better. I so appreciated being able to watch you build the whole flower and the catchy tune was a bonus. Thank you!! Hugs. ~Elizabeth-S >> Original comment was posted here: Red Clover Flower Beads Tutorial

My gosh – Cindy you make it look so easy. With a little patience and gentle hand – this is possible!!! What an ingenious tute! Time and thoughtfulness went in teaching all of us how to do all the tricks and ways to make a perfectly wood veneer!!!  Thank you so much. And Doug for such a clear video. ~Patt-W >> Original comment was posted here: Faux Wood Veneer Video

A die cutter may not be an item I’ll purchase anytime soon, if ever, but I sure love seeing what you come up with! What I find so amazing is by seeing your videos is it helps me to think of other possibilities that I wouldn’t have on my own! So Thank You. Besides it gives me something else to put on my wish list. LOL ~Jeanne-C >> Original comment was posted here: Die Cutting Techniques

I just ordered the Vintage Big KICK Machine and ALOT of the sizzix dies also a few embossing and etching dies. I can’t wait to get them. I love that Cindy gives us the shopping links to follow. It makes it so much easier to get what you need/want to keep creating. Thanks Cindy!!! I also just ordered a couple books… and have done one project out of the book already… Not as easy as watching Cindy’s tutes every week tho. ~Kelli-N >> Original comment was posted here: Polymer Clay Tutor

Cindy I look forward to your videos all the time. The little tips and tricks you gave has made my charms so much better. Because of your tips I will be able to open a small charm shop soon!
