How cool is that? It
looks like stained glass!”
On August 3, I posted an introductory preview clip for the Blend and Switch tutorial. Today, the full version of this video lesson (Vol-027-1) is available for viewing at the Polymer Clay Members Library. Here is the link: Blend & Switch Technique – How to Create Complex Looking Mosaic Designs, Easily!
For anyone who is not yet a paid member, if you did not know, the cost works out to only $3.32 per month. This gives you 24/7 access to the full versions of my Friday video tutes. Plus you also receive four A-series color recipe cards. This week’s color is: Snapdragon (1A) from the Snapdragon Polymer Clay Color Palette.
Cindy – Just wanted to let you know that after I joined your club that I stopped all the others that I belonged to. Thank you for sooooo much information and for saving me mucho dollars. Your new dedicated student. ~Norma-B
GOD BLESS YOU, CINDY LIETZ!!! I have been waiting for this video but knew you would only share it when the technique was perfected. Cuz, that’s how you are. You make the mistakes so we don’t have to. For anyone who has not joined as a member, this is something you definitely should do. The monthly fee is minimal and you will save that amount in aggravation. ~Anna-S
I was self taught and scanned the internet ALOT for new ideas and new techniques. I still do, but I LOVE Cindy’s site because it’s so much more than instruction (which is excellent) but a community which I was sorely lacking. My coffee and I are here every morning to see the next dose of polyclay fabulousness! ~Melinda-H
