Hello. Will this class also help me learn to convert my own drawings and designs to the correct file type to be used in my jewelry making?

Thank you.

Hi Karen, Yes, I think you will love it!
Let us know.

Which type of silhouette design works with metal clay? ‘Regular cut’?

HI Najia, Do you mean which machine? You can use any of them but you need to know the depth of the clay and the proper cut settings. The classes show you all of this information.

Does this class assume you already know the software and are just looking for ‘what’s new’, or is it for someone brand new to the software and starting from square one? I have purchased other tutorials here from Cindy, and I’m very frustrated as I’m finding they assume a certain level of experience (with what to do, when, and why) that I don’t have and it’s impossible to follow along with those tutorials (e.g. the leather journal). If this isn’t a beginner class, can you point me to where I should go? Thanks for any help!

Hi Donna, take a look at Shannon's class. She walks you through each step with the Silhouette software.
