Member Benefits 081: Beginners

Polymer Clay Membership SiteThanks, Cindy! As a new polymer clay artist, It’s such a jump start to be able to learn from your videos. ~Thalia-K >> Original comment was posted here: Polymer Clay Library

Hi Cindy, Your expertise, cheery disposition, and enthusiasm stand you in very good stead. When I was first beginning my stumble through how to use this medium, you (of all the myriad of resources I sussed out on both the internet and in print), provided a clear step by step and exciting window into the world of polymer clay. I thank you for sharing your kind and informative insights. Your moto re: ‘I made the mistakes so you don’t have to’ is the perfect welcome mat for any beginner or seasoned enthusiast.  Thank you. ~Linda-F >> Original comment was posted here: Beginner Polymer Clay Notes

Hi Cindy, I just subscribed to PCT last week. I bought the beginner lessons, 3 of the back issues and the monthly service. I was a stone-cold beginner and don’t consider myself very crafty, but after watching the beginning videos, I gathered my courage together and made your red clover flower design… and it turned out spectacularly! ~Heather-P >> Original comment was posted here: Red Clover Flower Beads

Hi Cindy,  I am a beginner, and have bought many good reference books… however, I am a “visual” person…lol.  Spent a fair amount of time browsing your site before deciding to join. I made a very good decision and am looking forward to learning so many wonderful things about Polymer Clay. Thank you. ~Cathy-C >> Original comment was posted here: Polymer Clay Tutorial Library

I love the tutorials.  I’ve been in a guild now for a year with some very talented people but you have shown me things that they have never covered at any of the meetings and I’ve only been a member a short amount of time. Thank you so much. I love the fact that you assume we know nothing and explain everything to the Nth degree and there is no problems with learning your techniques. ~Nancy-W >> Original comment was posted here: Cone Flower Canes

Thanks too for all you are doing to make these cool techniques easy to understand.  I’m super new to polymer clay, and now that I’ve discovered your website, I am more excited about the stuff than ever! My very happy husband suddenly has way more time with his power tools now that I am busy playing in my room. I have almost forgotten to feed the poor man a few times… But at the end of the day we have a lovely time of sharing our progress. ~DeShawn-M >> Original comment was posted here: Polymer Clay Tutorial Videos

Hi Cindy, I love the Heishi Beads! I made them in different shades of brown and I simply love it. I am amazed at my new found love for clay, Thank you for that. I will be making this bead in all different colors!!!!! Thanks again. ~Vedia-E >> Original comment was posted here: Faux Coral Heishi Beads

Hi Cindy, I’d just like to say that I’m totally new to polymer clay and am finding your tutorials invaluable! The pirate cane was the 2nd thing I attempted after the Owl Charm (which was my very fav!). It’s nowhere as good as your one of course and it went a bit wrong on the end of the bones…. but I’m very happy with it :-). Many Thanks. ~Stephanie-M >> Original comment was posted here: Pirate Cane Polymer Clay Tutorial

Thank you so much for your information Cindy. As a beginner, I look forward to trying this wonderful new Polymer Clay craft, and am so glad to have found your inspiring, clear on-line site and video’s. With kind regards. ~Mary-D >> Original comment was posted here: Polymer Clay Tutor Videos

Hello from Bay Saint Louis, Mississippi! Home of hurricane Katrina! My clay book is the thing I took with me when we left for the storm. I knew nothing about claying, but found your site somehow and thankful I did. Saved my sanity… maybe down the road we will see a Cindy section at michael’s with all your products and books on tips. I have bought many clay books and if you put one out I am sure it will be a best seller as your tips are much easier … do make visuals for your RV to promote you and your sponsors. I get excited when I see a RV of a favorite product when we are on the road. Come see us here in Mississippi, it is hot, hot, hot, but we are a friendly state! ~Theresa-N >> Original comment was posted here: PcT Roadtrip

Hi, I’m from Norway and am new to clay-working… this was my first cane it worked out perfectly! Thanks – its so much fun! ~Marthe-L >> Original comment was posted here: Checkered Paisley Cane

I love your videos Cindy. I’m just a beginner but have already learned so much from you. You always have such beautiful professional looking shapes to your pieces. ~Kathy-T >> Original comment was posted here: Sanding and Buffing Your Polymer Clay Is Worth It

Hi Cindy, Thank you so much for your response. I’ll look forward to seeing what yourself and Anie recommend, as being the best JoolTool disks to use with Polymer Clay, once you have completed your research. I haven’t that much time to spend on my polymer clay hobby, but I do love it, so I try to put aside a least an evening a week to try out all the techniques I’ve learnt, since becoming a member of your site. I’m not very good at the moment, but practice will make perfect, I hope (!), and the Jooltool will definitely help me out time wise, once I’m using it, I’m sure! I’m really pleased I found your site at the very beginning of my new hobby, you really do explain things very well. I just love your accent, and your sense of humour – I, like you, tend to laugh quite a lot, at some of the things I say, too, you do make me smile! Thanks again! Kindest regards. ~Sue-D >> Original comment was posted here: JoolTool Buffing Polymer Clay

Cindy, as a newbie to poly clay, and after finding your amazing website, I vote to create a “love” button for your videos … maybe “fantastic” or “amazing” … all would certainly apply! ~Michele-K >> Original comment was posted here: Handmade Earwires using Bead Landing Jewelry Jig

Hi Cindy, Thank you I’m all signed up after deliberating about it for a few months. Just watched your Faux Abalone tutorial it was totally amazing and just ordered loads of polymer clay to do the project. Your tutorials are very easy to follow wish I had done it ages ago. Thank you, From a newbie. ~Pamela-S >> Original comment was posted here: Faux Abalone Paua Cuff Tutorial

You tutorials are awesome for a complete newbie like me. :) ~Erin-K >> Original comment was posted here: Polymer Clay Skinner Blend Instructions

I am finding your tutorials helpful. I’ve dabbled in polymer for a few months now – just kinda trying to figure things out on my own. Very often when watching your videos, I find myself going Ahhhh (as in eureka) that makes sense. Really enjoying them. ~Wendy-H >> Original comment was posted here: Mistletoe Ornament Polymer Clay Tutorial
