Member Benefits 073: Video Learning

Polymer Clay Membership SiteYour videos for the Sweet Pea cane are absolutely fabulous! Can I just say that I don’t know how you do it, but no other polyclay artist I’ve found on line can even come close to the quality of your videos and the degree of care that goes into them, especially at this incredibly low price!! ~Marion-R >> Original comment was posted here: Sweet Pea Earrings Polymer Clay Tutorial

Hard to believe that another month is gone, and a great selection of new videos and custom clay colours offered by the multi-talented Lietz team. Every month I reflect on how pleased I am that I became a member… but since I am not an impulsive soul I naturally had to “study” these videos for a while before joining. I bought quite a few of the previously released videos and tried them out at my leisure. It didn’t take long for me to realize what fantastic value they offered! Now as a member I get them for a “steal”, and Fridays are extra-special. Anyone who feels reluctant to purchase a membership, just purchase a volume or two (or ten) to enjoy. There is so much variety, and Cindy’s conversational style makes me feel like I’m in my studio with my best friend; the professional filming and editing by Doug means I get superior close-ups of everything Cindy is demonstrating. Thanks you guys for the kind of video  teaching I can’t get anywhere else, and for a price even I can afford! ~Monique-U >> Original comment was posted here: Polymer Clay Tutor Video Library

Hi Cindy, I just purchased a subscription (yay!!) and I have been wanting to do that for awhile.  I just finished watching your series of videos on making a faux jasper cabochon. Your videos are phenomenal! You explain things thoroughly and clearly, and you don’t miss or skip any steps. It is an absolute joy to sit and watch you go through the process – I feel like I just attended a class I should have paid $100 for. I am so excited to see what other videos come my way! Thank you for all the hard work you put into making these videos and coming up with color recipes.  Your work is truly amazing.  ~Karen-R >> Original comment was posted here: Faux Jasper Polymer Tutorial

Cindy, I love your tutorials!! I am very much a visual learner and your tutes really work well for me. I am so glad I found you … I also do many other types of crafts, so I haven’t done a lot of PC yet, but truly enjoy my creations so far, so am looking forward to doing more. ~Connie-H >> Original comment was posted here: PcT Roadtrip Virtual Petition

Cindy you are such a great teacher… very thorough. You speak clearly and what I think is great is that you kept your hands out of the way so we can see what you are actually doing. So keep up the good job. Thank you ~Veronica-M >> Original comment was posted here: Polymer Clay Video Library

Cindy, I re-subscribed to the weekly members video library this month. Looking forward to getting creating with you again. I regret quitting! ~Suzanne-C >> Original comment was posted here: Rose Brain Cane Polymer Clay Tutorial

OMG that is super nice. I love those cords. They are perfect for all those beautiful beads and pendants that thanks to you we are able to make. I love all kind of crafts but Cindy I am always so anxious when it’s Friday because I can learn a lot with your videos. Thank you for explaining them so nice. Thank  you Thank you Thank you. ~Carmen-V >> Original comment was posted here: Kumihimo Cord Jewelry Projects

I am really enjoying your video lessons and look forward to getting them every week. ~Connie-T >> Original comment was posted here: Polymer Clay Color Recipes

Happy 50th! Just thinking back to all those videos and techniques you’ve taught us and the beautiful palettes. Awesome! I do have a book on polymer clay and one on textures but I have to say yours are way better! I haven’t really got around to trying anything from the books as yet but I have made jewelry watching your tutorials; it made me want to go and do it!!  I have heaps more to try and hopefully will get around to doing them all. I’m so excited about the changes. Seems like a lot more claying and lots more fun!!! One technique I need to try out a lot more is caning. I’ve only tried out the zebra, animal print and rose cane so far. ~Cherie-H >> Original comment was posted here: Polymer Clay Tutor News

I look so forward to your video every week thanks!!!! ~Amy-T >> Original comment was posted here: Polymer Clay Tutor Library

Hi Cindy, I just wanted to say that the sweet pea earrings you’re wearing in this video look absolutely fantastic! I have to admit that when the sweet pea earring tutorial was released my first thought was “Sheesh, not flowers *again*!” — with a roll of the eyes too, even… I’m totally NOT a flower person, as you can tell! ;D — but the dimensional effect, the splash of colour and brightness against your black clothing, and the dangle movement are all great. (And of course, the principles in the tutorial can be applied to plenty of non-flowery thing too anyway.) I also wanted to compliment you and Doug on the new format. I really like how it enables you to present more complex material while still keeping things accessible to all levels, and I think this will broaden the appeal. The higher video resolution is a significant improvement, and the extras each week are a nice bonus. Overall, excellent! :D ~Sue-F >> Original comment was posted here: Polymer Clay Textures Tutorial

I look forward to your video tutorials religiously since they make Fridays even greater than they already are! ~Gail-M >> Original comment was posted here: Etching Polymer Clay

Christie Friesen was the first artist I discovered. She’s totally free form whereas Donna Kato is very precise and formal. I love both things and can do if I want.  I’ve always been self taught — just give me a book. But I  also agree there’s nothing like seeing an expert do it. I also stumbled on to this site and Cindy blew me away with some of the stuff I saw. Again, another completely different style. And Doug’s videos are great in and of themselves. Then, there’s all you guys with all these questions and ideas. I feel like I’ve somehow put together the best and brightest polymer university for myself with the best instructors and the best and brightest students. ~Andrea-P >> Original comment was posted here: Jewelry Display Ideas

Loved the video, thanks Cindy for the beautiful scenes of such a simple flower but yet so beautiful. ~DixieAnn-S >> Original comment was posted here: Flower Stamen Wire Bails

I wanted to thank you for taking care of my log in issue so quickly. I really enjoy your videos. Your explanations are clear and concise and the projects are fun and interesting. I really like the change that you made a few months ago on the videos all at the beginning of the month. It’s nice to watch them all at one time so that I can get the entire project concept and then go back over the techniques that I want to focus on. Many thanks.  ~Jean-G >> Original comment was posted here: Checkered Paisley Cane Polymer Tutorial

Kudos Cindy and Doug, another information packed video. Stunned by how many choices come to mind for just the stamen. ~Jocelyn-C >> Original comment was posted here: Glass Encrusted Flower Stamens Polymer Clay Tutorial

Execellent video… thanks for sharing the way you torch your head pins. I would love to see more of these type of videos. You are the Best. Just want you to know we appreciate everything you do for us (Cindy and Doug). ~Cindy-P >> Original comment was posted here: Hand Torched Headpins

Thanks for the excellent video publication you provide. It’s nothing short of amazing considering you and Doug do it on your own! Truly. ~Shauna-B >> Original comment was posted here: Bohemian Beach Bracelet Tutorial
