I’m not a big video fan – I do better experimenting on my own or with a book, to go at my own speed – but with the huge, HUGE increase in the number of video tutorials out there the last few I’ve caved and started watching now and then. CraftArtEdu, Donna Kato’s site for crafty educating, has lots of great content. Some of that is polymer clay oriented and some of it is free. The free content is mostly basic materials but it’s always worth having a peek. Basic techniques like Julie Eake’s for reducing large canes make the difference between successful canes and less awesome ones. There’s more videos in the free section for good stuff like making smooth bullseye blends, using molding materials, working with textures and projects for using up scraps.
