Special Surprise Every Week For Polymer Clay Newsletter Subscribers

Polymer Clay Newsletter

This Week… The Surprise Was Free Access To Yet Another Members Only Video Tutorial:

Several weeks ago when I provided limited access to one of my exclusive tutorial videos in the members library, an interesting thing happened.

Non-members got a taste of the quality of tutoring that members experience every single week. As a result, many of you realized that the $3.32 per month library cost is really a non-issue… and joined too. A few of the related comments are posted here: Quality How To Videos On Bead Making

Since the “free video” idea was so well received, I decided to do it again this past weekend. But this time I only made the announcement to those who are on my Polymer Clay Tutor Guest List …one more reason to subscribe if you have not already done so.

Now although there won’t be a free polymer clay video every week, I do promise to post regular surprises that will make it worth your while to receive and open my emails as soon as they arrive in your in box.

These special bonuses will quite often be extra color recipe cards that so many of you have already been collecting and enjoying since I started publishing them back in the Fall of 2008.

Your recipes for different colors are priceless and such a time saver. I took index cards, printed the color and recipe on them then glued a baked sample on the card. Now when I need that just so color I can just find it on my index card and whip it up with out the waste and mistakes of finding just what one I need. Fantastic!! Thanks. ~Yvonne

I LOVE the recipes …because I can’t really make up colours in my head yet.  I am very new to polymer clay!!  And frankly don’t want to waste my money on making ugly colours!!  So it is nice to have that work done for me …gives me more time to play. ~Kam

Thanks for the recipes Cindy! Getting a tried and true recipe for a certain colour is a real time-saver, no guess work or experimenting required. Not that experimental colours don’t come in handy, but if you want that ‘just so’ colour, recipes are so appreciated. ~Tina

Color is one of my worst problems.  Your recipes are fantastic and I print them all out and keep them in a binder for future reference. I have done the Maggie Maggio “course” but still have trouble “seeing” which color to use to match a particular palatte. Thanks so much for sharing your knowledge and experience. Hugs. ~Sue

Can you say MUD!! I have had my fair share of mixing the wrong colors together. I never had a course in color theory but learned pretty quickly when I didn’t get the results I wanted. Thanks to your “recipes” I’m doing a lot better! ~Katina

I love the colors!!! They are so bright, alive. Thank you so much for the recipes. ~Cheryl

Thanks for posting some recipes for all of us to share.  For those of us who really don’t have an easy time figuring out how to arrive at just the right color yet, these recipes are a real helper! ~Cynister

I am really “addicted” to your weekly colors and recipes…. Thanks! ~Janine

But please keep in mind that all of the newsletter special bonus video and color recipe links will be time limited. If you want them, you will have to pay attention and watch for my emails.

The reason why I have to start using time limited links is because the newsletter content is now also being archived on web pages… instead of just being sent out via email.

These archived web pages are available to anyone and everyone at anytime. But the  special bonus videos and recipes are only supposed to be for Guest List Subscribers. So the time limited approach will at least help to keep things exclusive.

By the way, here’s what a couple of subscribers have said about the recent Polymer Clay Newsletter changes and enhancements…

Hi Cindy, I’m fairly new to your newsletter and tutorials, but I have to say I love the new look. It is so much cleaner and easy to  focus on the main thing. Great job. I’ve enjoyed all the tutorials so far and I am very new to the polymer clay crowd so  all your tips have been very helpful. Thanks for taking the time and energy to put this together for us novices. Have a sparkling weekend. ~Shana

Hi Cindy, Really like the larger pictures! Miss the card hunt because it makes me review each week. Concerning the new format of only one week to access the second recipe; those of us who have to miss reading the blog every week and are members will lose a very useful resource. I for one must be gone frequently for long stretches without computer access to care for family members. How can we get access to the recipes we miss. Believe me I read every email just not in what maybe considered timely. Thanks for listening. ~MJ

To answer your question MJ about accessing bonus recipes that you may end up missing… As I’ve done in the past, I’ll probably have catch up weeks or special promotions to address this issue.

If anyone else has any other comments, ideas or concerns about the recent changes to the newsletter, please do share your thoughts below.

    I am in the process of making a schedule of what to include as ‘surprise bonuses’ for upcoming newsletter issues.

    If you have any special requests based on what has already been released in the members library (see link by my name above)… let me know.

    As I’ve said many times before, your comments here at my blog, are like votes. They tell me what it is that you guys want to see more of.

    Or for that matter, you are also welcome to tell me what you want to see less of. I’m constantly striving to make this resource the best it can be for all of you.

    Hi Cindy,
    I work with Kato clay and trying out your color recipes is challenging and interesting to say the least… *lol* The colors don’t alway match, but they don’t turn into mud. Thank goodness!
    I’m new to polymer clay, but I’m learning something new every time I visit your site. Thanks for all the tips and tricks!

  3. Cindy Lietz, 20 March, 2009

    I bet it is tricky since most brands of clay don’t use the same formula for colors! I have yet to switch over to Kato clay though I hear it is a great quality product.

    Thank you so much for your comments Lisa! I am so glad you are enjoying the site!

    I am not receiving weekly newsletters any more. I also am unable to access the recent color recipes and can’t find them on the website. Can you help me? Thanks. Barbara

  5. Cindy Lietz, 07 April, 2009

    Hi Barbara,

    I checked and confirmed that your email address is in fact still active on my weekly newsletter guest list. This means that although my messages are being sent to you, they are getting filtered before reaching your inbox :(

    You will need to white list my email contact info. Follow the link by my name above for instructions on how to do that.

    In regards to the color recipes… you probably already know that the A-Series recipes are available to you when you log into your paid member library account.

    For info about how the B-Series (the ones that are sent out for free in the weekly newsletter), please read the comments at this post: Polymer Clay Color Recipes

    If you have any other questions, please feel free to ask.
