Member Benefits 036-2: Video Learning

Polymer Clay Membership Site

It blows my mind how you can keep coming up with ideas! God Bless You and your family. Best videos on the web, hands down. ~Sandy-T >> This comment was originally posted here: Butterfly Wing Cane

It’s mind boggling to think there are people out there that don’t realize your site is the BEST out there. Your videos are clear and very informative. I own Polymer Clay books, although I have learned from them they don’t even come close to what I’ve learned from watching your tutorials. The other great reason for being a member is the fact that you are constantly trying new products such as the Micromesh pads, Ultra Dome etc. that keeps us on the top of the Polymer Clay world. With out you and Doug, life as a clayer would be so mundane. You encourage all of us to explore all possibilities and push the envelope to be creative. The cost to be a member is so minimal for what we get. We definitely get a bang for our buck!! Besides, there aren’t any other sites where you can state a clay problem your having and get so much helpful suggestions.  Everyone here has been there done that so as a newcomer everyone takes you under their wings to help you to bloom in the new and wonderful craft of claying. ~Jeanne-C >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Tutor

Hi Cindy, this is the coolest. I have learned so much from your videos. I finally got sanding down to a science, thanks to the micromesh pads. The faux agate video has also helped me tremendously. My beads are really coming along. Thank you so much for all your videos. It is taking my jewelry designs to another level. ~Ifama-J >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Tutorials

Watched this a couple of times now, and am amazed at how many techniques you combine and information you share in 12 min.  Really fun to watch, too. I can add two more… when you get to the scrap stage, pile them and slice mokume gane style, and of course… do a couple of lentil beads. Anyone else? I love that I can use a whole cane or sheet of fabric clay to the max based on everything I’ve learned here. Before, I did one thing and walked away… now, the table is piled with experiments! ~Jocelyn-C >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Art Sheets

I agree… it really is very easy to sit for maybe ten minutes to learn the most important part of a technique and not have to sit through the idea that might be beaten to death in a long video. ~Koolbraider >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Videos

Cindy’s videos make you want to grab the clay and go. There are many tutes that make you WANT to clay, but the difference with Cindy’s videos is that you really DO grab that clay… she gives you the confidence to start the projects. I’ve read so many other people say the same thing. Something about her teaching style gives you that boost, knowing you’ll be able to do it if you just try. That’s just one of many reasons I’m a devoted Cindy fan. ~Phaedrakat >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Tutorials

Thank you Cindy. I really believe my beads are so much better because of your wonderful tutorials. You make them so easy to follow and to actually accomplish. ~Jackie-N >> This comment was originally posted here: Sanding Polymer Clay with Micromesh Abrasives

Thanks again Cindy, for providing such a great resource! One thing I absolutely love is your video previews! I can’t tell you how many times I have bought the back issues based solely on the previews, because you let us see the “end result”.  Sometimes, when the thumbnail and title doesn’t quite make me hit the buy button, the preview sways me into the BUY mode :) ~Amy-C >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Library

Karonkay – Wow, isn’t Cindy a bargain, lol? I simply love, love, love the fact that we keep all these videos in our libraries and can simply pull them up to watch at any time! I could never remember all the steps to do some of these effects and styles without going back to look at the videos again. I truly am still so thrilled I found Cindy’s site and subscribed. Worth every penny and then some. ~Rebecca-C >> This comment was originally posted here: Buffing Polymer Clay Beads

I just adore your videos! They are very helpful to me. Today I send my husband to buy me a dremel tool! ~Oana-M >> This comment was originally posted here: Polyclay Beginners

Thanks Cindy, this is a great video. I really learn much better visually, and now I completely understand how to make the mobius bead. Your written instructions are always wonderful, but for me, it is the videos that teach me the most :) Enjoy your Sunday. As always, hugs to you. ~Cindy-E >> This comment was originally posted here: How To Make Mobius Beads

I’m a show me kinda gal and thoroughly enjoy watching Cindy’s tutorials. But I do agree with some comments made. Like not having a computer handy to my work area until recently. Videos had to be watched and then I had to come back if I had a question. That’s why I started taking notes and making little thumbnail sketches from videos. So I could take that with me to my clay table to refer back to. But I find with Cindy’s videos that she covers a topic so completely and in simple steps I hardly ever have questions or have to rewatch them in order to have success in the first try. I did work from books with some success for a long time before there was internet and videos to be had. But there were lots of mistakes made and questions unanswered with just using that approach. I have to say I like the video much better. But I do still use both sources for inspiration,ideas and new techniques. And I get lots of both right here from Cindy! XOXO ~Jamie-H >> This comment was originally posted here: Bead Video Tutorials

I know I have saved at least $3.32 in clay and aggravation by watching the Videos. Lord knows I have enough scrap clay already !!! When you consider the cost of a PC book, these videos are a bargain. Let’s say a PC book with 15 projects is $26.00 (US); you may not even like all the projects in the book. For $26.56 you get an 8 month membership with 32 videos, plus color recipes!!  I am not a math  person but it makes sense to me. What I like about the video library is that I can go back and watch the videos later.  Sometimes I may not be doing  a particular project at the time but want to use that technique a couple months later. ~Anna-S >> This comment was originally posted here: Leopard Cane Tutorial

Yes, the videos are super … best in the world! This is also a group of very caring individuals. We all love polymer clay but are not in the least bit selfish with out tips and ideas. Everyone seems willing to share for the good of all. Cindy has fostered this wonderful attitude and keeps us going. It is truly a great place to be. ~Carolyn-F >> This comment was originally posted here: Faux Agate Tutorial

Cindy, I’ve dabbled in wire-wrapping and have a ton of books, but there’s nothing better than actually seeing it happen… especially when you are the teacher. ~Linda-K >> This comment was originally posted here: Wire Wrapped Coin Bead Rings

I KNEW you’d make this easy for us, Cindy! A super great tut – Thank you so much for showing us how to do this! And thanks, Doug, for your amazing filming skills. Keep ’em coming! ~Tanya-L >> This comment was originally posted here: Wire Wrapped Rings

Well my predictions were right. I love this tute, totally understand it and now understand the one I purchased a couple of years ago before I found Cindy, even more. To top that my imagination after watching Cindy’s tute is wondering a lot further than it did with the other tute. Pictures and filming as always superb Doug. The Lietz team does it again, BAM right out of the ballpark. THANK YOU BOTH FOR ANOTHER GREAT TUTE FOR NEXT TO NOTHING. BIG HEARTS HAVE BIG IDEAS!!! Clayfully yours. ~Peggy-B >> This comment was originally posted here: Make Your Own Custom Bead Caps

Fantastic video.  I have the cutters with the little flower. The beads will look even more unique now with handmade bead caps. Thanks Cindy for a wonderful tutorial! ~Cheryl-H >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Bead Caps

I love this flower petal! It’s so pretty and I’m so excited to try it…. but first I shall sleep. I love getting home Friday mornings and watching the weekly video before I go to bed to dream of the polymer clay fun waiting for me later! ~Melinda-H >> This comment was originally posted here: Spotted Lily Petal Cane

I agree with you. I know I wouldn’t be enjoying claying around without the techniques Cindy gives us and the wonderful video work by Doug. I also love the written word but learn so much better and faster with a visual. A million thanks go to you, Cindy and Doug, I don’t think I’ve said that lately. September was a great month, following along with so many previous ones. Of course I have my favorites but that list is getting longer all the time. Gotta go and clay around. ~Joyce-M >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Videos
