A free video

Hi All,

Cindy Leitz, whose work I admire and who is a talented video tutor for clay has announced that she will be giving access to a free video starting Monday, May 2nd.

A few years ago she developed a teardrop skinner blend video that shortened the Skinner blend technique be several minutes and gave that away free. I forget to use the technique but I think some of that is because I work with a stiffer clay. When I do remember to use it though I ask myself why I don't use it all the time.

The new technique that Cindy is giving away for free is how to shift your skinner blends. I've done some blend shifting based on Lindly Haunani's technique, but Cindy always manages to make something tedious look a lot easier, so I'm curious to see how it compares.

Anyhow, Cindy doesn't give away free tutorials very often so do take advantage of her freebie.

Here's the link: Teardrop Blend Shift a la Cindy Leitz.

Thank you so much Sandy for getting the word out on this easy color blending idea. I am so glad that you love it! If you are having trouble using this method with the stiffer clays, what you can do is flatten your teardrops with an acrylic roller before putting through the pasta machine and just fold the sheet, rather than rolling it. It is not quite as fast as it is with soft clays, but it does save having to cut and piece together the triangles like in the regular Skinner blend.
