Learning Polymer Clay Techniques in a Supportive Blog Community

Polymer Clay Community

Where Creativity Runs Free and Inspiration is Daily:

Something wonderful is happening around here… a polymer clay community is forming! When my dear husband Doug and I began this blog over a year ago, we always new it would become a place where polymer clay enthusiasts (beginners to advanced), would come to learn, share and support each other in their bead making pursuits.

Where clayers can ask questions and get reliable answers. Where creativity runs free and inspiration is daily.

Well after many long hard days and plenty of input from all of you, this blog is turning into an online resource that is now starting to bring significant value to the polymer clay community. Polymer clay artists from all around the world are coming together here to learn and share their love of clay and beads.

One very exciting development is the support that you all are giving each other. You can see it in the comments and interactions that are happening amongst the visitors that frequent this blog. Readers are asking questions and other readers are answering them. Sometimes I don’t even have to add my 3 cents. You guys are giving each other great advice and support. I love it!

There’s an excellent example of this in the comments section of this article: Using A Rock Polisher To Get Shiny Polymer Clay Beads

It’s also happening over here at this post: Bad Jewelry – Funny Crafts Story About a Mouse Droppings Necklace

And it’s happening over here too: Pearl Ex Powdered Pigments Perfect For Making Polymer Clay Beads

Members helping guests. Experienced clayers helping newbies. Inspiration and support coming from everybody!

I am so proud to be part of what is happening here! It’s so exciting that we are all learning from each other and are able to get to know one another. This is just the beginning of great things to come. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart!

    Hi Cindy, sorry for being slightly late with this reply. I have to take turns with the rest of my family with the internet!! I enjoyed the “Polymer Clay Bead Making for Beginners Course” very very (moltissimo!) much. You’re great at explaining Cindy and all your advice is valuable. Thank’s for sharing your “secrets”. Consider yourself responsible for a new “polymer clay addict”!!!

    Just one thing Cindy, in your email to me what does “my neck of the woods” mean?! Sorry my english doesn’t recevie many updates as I live in Italy, but it’s great to learn new expressions!

    Thank you so much for taking the time to write those very kind words about the course videos. By the way,
    your English is just fine… completely understandable :)

    There is quite an international community coming together here at the blog. It is really wonderful to see this happening.

    The “Translucent Polymer Clay” link up by my name just above, will take you to a comment from another Italian polymer clay “addict/artist” who follows this blog. Her name is Mary Tempesta. She does absolutely wonderful sculpted polymer clay figurines and cake toppers which you will be able to see pictures of at her own web site.

    I would love it Kathia if you and others from around the world, would share more (“moltissimo”) information and stories about what’s happening with polymer clay in “your neck of the woods” — now there’s that expression again :)

    I use it in a way that means, “in my country” or “where I live”

    Anyways… I’m really looking forward to hearing more from you Kathia. If you have any questions at all about bead making or polymer clay, please feel free to ask. I’m here to help, along with the support and encouragement from many other readers as well.

    Hi Antonietta,

    Thank you so much for writing from Italy. Although I speak no Italian at all, this is how the online translation tools interpreted your message for me:

    “kind mrs. Cindy Lietz a lot is Italian em piacciono its works could make a tutorial in Italian. Thanks”

    In regards to translating my Tutorials into the Italian language… all I can say if there is enough interst, I would be happy to do it. I’d love to hear from any other readers who may also be interested. Cindy

    Transaltion (probably not a very good one :) … “Rispetto a tradurre le mie lezioni private nel di lingua italiana‚Ķ tutti che potessi dire se ci √® abbastanza interst, io sarebbero felici di farlo. I’ amore di d da sentire da qualsiasi altri lettori che possono anche essere interessati. Cindy”
