More Free Polymer Tutorials

Cara Jane's page of free tutorials can be found HERE. Cara gave me a plug on her blog yesterday, so I am happily returning the favor. I enjoy her blog and polymer artistry; and she's fun too. I'm liking this idea of featuring followers' work. I haven't really done that much and the more I surf polymer sites (domestic and international), I'm finding brand new polymer artists with one or two followers or none at all. I'll show you what I mean tomorrow. I like being able to click on a follower's avatar (picture) and reading their profile, going to their blog, seeing who they follow and what art they do. It's a common thread connecting all of us. Followers keep the polymer community going. So cool. I loved finding the tutorial photo directory yesterday and sharing it. Plus I "pinned" a ton of tutorials to my Pinterest board (click HERE). I am really enjoying the ease of hitting one button to put a polymer tutorial on my Pinterest board. I'm rambling, I'm tired.

I know what you mean. I think the online community is really important, especially in polymer clay. Whenever I tell friends or family about my new medium, they have no idea what I am talking about. If I say silver or gold, then they get it of course but polymer, not so much. It is nice to have friends online who speak the language.

I completely agree and so well put. Thanks, Roberta.

I wish I made so much sense when tired and rambling. I agree with Roberta, no matter what medium is used, those who know it can relate, and feedback from them is important.

Thanks Barbara. It is really nice to have feedback and to know "someone" is out there. Thanks.

thank you for the link to my blog, much appreciated! I love to look for polymer clay realate things on the internet. I love pinterest and follow your polymer boards and may others. I particularly love to mouch around on flickr looking at other poeples favourites, it gives an interesting insight into their own inspirations and often unearths a beautiful piece by an artist I already know and admire but that I hadn't already seen for some reason.

I look forward to you sharing more links to followers blog, thanks

I do the same thing on Flickr! I love to see what polymer art interests others. Oh, and you are so welcome.
