meows3xx: Hi NJ
auntyalias: Hey Roni
auntyalias: Sorry my back was to the screen and I didn't see you come
in. I don't have my speakers connected either
meows3xx: thanks for all the Asian eye candy
auntyalias: did you see the tutorial for this morning?
auntyalias: Oh my pleasure, I'm finding my "loots"
meows3xx: yes, never would have thought of toilet paper lol
auntyalias: I was wondering how I could do this while I was cleaning
auntyalias: and I was emptying the waste paper basket and there was a
toilet paper roller
meows3xx: inspiration in the "head"
auntyalias: and it was like the Finger of God touched my third eye
auntyalias: Oh, how funny that is.
auntyalias: Ya exactly, very Zen
auntyalias: and all that
auntyalias: did you see the Gold and Crimson paces?
meows3xx: yes, checked it out this morning
auntyalias: what sheets we're going to cover these three sections
auntyalias: ok, which one do you like the most?
auntyalias: just plain basket weave or with the leaves?
meows3xx: basket weave
auntyalias: ah, let me get that cane out, got basket weave already
jude (greatauntjudy) joined the room
meows3xx: hi Judy
auntyalias: Howdy Jude, did you see the Tute for the inside of this
auntyalias: Inro with toilet paper roller
jude: Yes, I did look. Most interesting.
ljcswartz joined the room
auntyalias: Hey honey
meows3xx: hi Jackie
twinmom94002 joined the room
ljcswartz: nice to be here...
twinmom94002: hi folks! Hiya Lynn!
auntyalias: did everyone see the Gold and Crimson paces and the tute
for this morning?
ljcswartz: not sure --
twinmom94002: some of it
jude: Gold and crimson?
jude: So much to see...so little time...hehehehe
jude: Okie, got it.
auntyalias: I'll wait until everyone's been able to review the Paces
and Inside tutes
auntyalias: So Jude how's the weather
jude: We have a little breeze. But it's nice and warm, but not hot.
auntyalias: You know that saying of Mark Twain, "The coldest winter I
ever spent was a Summer in San Francisco" we got that, in the low 50's
out by my foggy and windy location
jude: Oh, brrrr....
auntyalias: speaking of which I'm going to put on a sweater
jude: We haven't had warm for over six months, so this is most
ljcswartz: is there a good mix for crimson?? red and??
twinmom94002: very clever construction, nj
auntyalias: gosh, I know that cadmium red and black makes Ox Blood,
the color for Bento Boxes
auntyalias: so that's not going to work
twinmom94002: i like alizarin crimson and gold
auntyalias: that's what this is
twinmom94002: heavier on the al. crimson
auntyalias: for some reason I had like three pounds of it going hard
ljcswartz: I have those
auntyalias: so that's why I'm making effort to use it up
auntyalias: excuses excuses
ljcswartz: what is the proportion gold to alizarin
auntyalias: pure gold, pure crimson
ljcswartz: slow reader
auntyalias: unless you're doing a blend
ljcswartz: more al crimson- got it
kmrhodes joined the room
jude: Howdy Karen.
auntyalias: Hey Karen, did you see the toilet paper tute?
twinmom94002: hiya karen
ljcswartz: so the alizarin cr... is the crimson?
kmrhodes: hows it going
auntyalias: yes Jackie it is
auntyalias: That's for Karen
auntyalias: if she's not see it yet
shargoose joined the room
kmrhodes: been busy - got new items in
auntyalias: SharonV, Hey honey
kmrhodes: busy photo-ing them
kmrhodes: hey Sharon
auntyalias: ok, 12:30 and let's take roll
shargoose: Just in for a few
auntyalias: NoraJean, San Francisco
kmrhodes: Karen, Gettsyburg, PA
jude: jude, Tehachapi, CA.
meows3xx: Roni, Michigan
ljcswartz: Jackie, Bel Air, MD
shargoose: Have husband's son drop in for a suprise 3 week visit
kmrhodes: That was Sharon in VT
shargoose: No Sharon In NH
kmrhodes: I am so confused
auntyalias: Close enough for Government work
kmrhodes: got the V from your last name
shargoose: I don't care if the IRS can find me or not!!
kmrhodes: it was close
auntyalias: Lisa in Belmont must be caught up with the Twins
auntyalias: Let's take these separate sections off of the toilet paper
roller, they are cooled down by now
shargoose: Hope someone is doing Log and Pics
ljcswartz: shall I shoot?
auntyalias: Thank you Jackie if you could
shargoose: Geting some while I am on
shargoose: but have to scoot soon
ljcswartz: just a sec
auntyalias: so now it's a matter of putting an outer tube on these,
not letting the separate compartments stick to one another in the
shargoose: I really want to do one of these!!
auntyalias: and having the cuts of the outer section in different
places that the compartments
auntyalias: they over lap in the picture I put up
auntyalias: did you see that picture of the Inro Opened?
auntyalias: I think I'll use the leaf on the basket weave as the
outside of this thing
auntyalias: to keep where it over laps separate I'm going to use
auntyalias: to keep the sections from curing to each other, at the
bottoms I'll add a sheet of aluminum foil
auntyalias: some parts of the outer tube will be cured to the inside
auntyalias: and some will be unable to because of the foil
auntyalias: so let's see if this brain fart works
auntyalias: is anyone saving logs or shall I do that right now?
auntyalias: I'll do it now then
auntyalias: now for the foil
shargoose: Nj I am saving log as long as I will be on
auntyalias: thanks honey, I just saved what we have, you gotta scoot
so you just enjoy yourself there, shots are nice if it's not a hassle
shargoose: No Problem
shargoose: I'm here until "THE KID" gets back!!
ljcswartz: I should be getting screen shots
ljcswartz: where exactly is that foil?
shargoose: Looks like its on the inner rim
shargoose: So they don't stick togather when covered in clay?
auntyalias: I'm going to use some floral tape, just a touch, to hold
this ring of foil around the edge
auntyalias: naw, it's too plastic
auntyalias: maybe some masking tape instead
ljcswartz: the foil is covering the top of a compartment. And a strip
of foild is added around the edges
kmrhodes: so correct me if I'm wrong
kmrhodes: there are 3 sections
kmrhodes: foil is added to the first and middle section
kmrhodes: but not the last?
auntyalias: Where the foil is the outer layer will not stick
auntyalias: that's where the compartments over lap
auntyalias: now I'm just figuring this out as I go
auntyalias: the next issue will be where to cut the outer layers
auntyalias: shall we cut them hot out of the oven
auntyalias: hoping to hit the foil?
auntyalias: or add them on with the separation already sliced
auntyalias: so we're sure
kmrhodes: measure the foil - how far up it goes
ljcswartz: one has a foil bottom and one doesn't?
kmrhodes: looks like it
kmrhodes: the middle one has a foil bottom
kmrhodes: the top one, has foil around the rim
meows3xx: if you cut it hot and miss the foil won't you possibly be
cutting where it is stuck
shargoose: was the base layer baked already?
kmrhodes: Oh, I like this thing!
ljcswartz: me too
kmrhodes: did she mark the layers with a needle prick
ljcswartz: good idea
ljcswartz: cutt off the excess on the bottom leaving the base
kmrhodes: or straight on?
auntyalias: Where we need to cut is already scored
auntyalias: we have lines we can follow after the curing, which I'm
going to do right now
ljcswartz: does the top dent in a bit?
kmrhodes: I don't think so
ljcswartz: an illusion then
auntyalias: there is a dent in the top
kmrhodes: maybe the clay dipped a little in baking
auntyalias: there's going to be something there before it's all done
ljcswartz: how did it get there?
auntyalias: I put it there deliberately
auntyalias: also for there to be a differentiation between the top and
auntyalias: the bottom looks like a bottom, flat, the top is indented
because it gives us a recess to put some decorative something or other
auntyalias: now since the inside was cured
auntyalias: and the outside was raw
auntyalias: it was easy to cut the outside
auntyalias: when you hit something firm
auntyalias: when I can hear foil creaking against the tissue blade,
auntyalias: roll the thing and the lines will match up
auntyalias: or did for me anyway
kmrhodes: I'd have cuts everywhere. Can't cut straight for nothing
auntyalias: let the truth of the toilet paper roller be your guide.
frogger70301 joined the room
auntyalias: Hey honey
kmrhodes: Hey Mitch
frogger70301: hi, all.
auntyalias: just got the first Inro in the oven, put the outside sheet
on, did you see the tute for the inside?
ljcswartz: hi Mitch
frogger70301: glanced at it.
ljcswartz: I have 20 screen shots... hope they help
auntyalias: Oh cool Jackie, you know how to load them into Epson,
shargoose: Iv'e got 62 shots
shargoose: I always take a lot
ljcswartz: I need to learn. I use webshots and my web page
shargoose: I need all the help I can get!!
auntyalias: Sharon!! Gosh
ljcswartz: guess I need to learn to shot too
kmrhodes: more is good
auntyalias: Ok, Jackie I'll link to your site on this demo
shargoose: Quick trigger finger
auntyalias: now I don't know if this will work or not
auntyalias: but I do think that putting foil down where you want
things to over lap and not stick is key to this trick
bonsaikathy joined the room
kmrhodes: Hey Kathy
auntyalias: Howdy Kathy, I got the tape, thank you
shargoose: Hi Kathy!
frogger70301: Hiya hon. Feeling better?
auntyalias: I just put the Inro box into the oven with the outer sheet
auntyalias: we have a boat load of screen shots
ljcswartz: question.. for the screen shots - it is best to keep the
text too for reference, right?
auntyalias: I sort of like them with the text
auntyalias: and it's easier for you, yes?
ljcswartz: me too
bonsaikathy: hi there
auntyalias: less cropping and such all, no captions need be written
bonsaikathy: and you're welcome NJ
auntyalias: How ya feeling Kathy?
bonsaikathy: still under the weather but feeling a little better
shargoose: NJ, I'm saving all 62 pics. If you want them let me know
shargoose: I will purge them later
shargoose: I know I can cut out a lot of the extra steps
auntyalias: Sharon you can put them into the Epson albums, put a
password on it and I'll review before having them go prime time
ljcswartz: how do you do your shots Sharon?
shargoose: Put a password?
shargoose: I use PSP 7
auntyalias: ya, I'll give you the directions on how to put them in our
Epson album stash, there's a way of putting a password on an album so
it doesn't go public until you're ready
ljcswartz: is there a trick to quick saving then?
auntyalias: I'll be able to remove the password when I go sort them
shargoose: I open it up, then on the keyboard on the upper right is a
button that says "Print Screen Sys Rq
auntyalias: I'll send you an email with the directions, Sharon, Ok?
shargoose: I hit that then go to PSP screen
shargoose: Right click and a menu say save as
shargoose: OK NJ
auntyalias: going to answer Eva's post on the list, brb
ljcswartz: sounds like what I do = I use control v........
shargoose: Nj I know the password but is that the one you want me to
shargoose: Or another one since you want to preview them
shargoose: I couls add them to my Epson site
auntyalias: Sorry, Sharon I'm back now
bonsaikathy: I'm going to go get dinner started and then I'll be back
to watch demo
auntyalias: Okie Dokie Kathy
auntyalias: brb, door
auntyalias: UPS guy
auntyalias: ok, Sharon, put them in with the Demo albums in our
communal Epson account
shargoose: Ok, all I have to go.
auntyalias: but go into settings when you have them in an album
shargoose: Will save pics and log
auntyalias: and give it a password of any type
shargoose: Will email log to you NJ
shargoose: I'll try
auntyalias: thanks Sharon, but do you understand what I'm saying about
putting a password on the album. I'll see it
auntyalias: I have Faith in You
shargoose: If not I'll put them on my site
auntyalias: thanks honey
shargoose: you pic and I'll upload to your Epson site
auntyalias: that's twice the work sweety
auntyalias: go on and we'll sort this out later
shargoose: Make sure more shots are taken as you go along
auntyalias: ask your claymates here
shargoose: I really, really really want to make one of these!!
auntyalias: Who will take shots since Sharon got to go?
auntyalias: I'm going to check the timer
ljcswartz: I am but not so fast
shargoose left the room
auntyalias: 10 more minutes to go
kmrhodes: tell NJ to slow down Jackie so you can get the shots
auntyalias: and then we slice where we pre-cut while it is warm
auntyalias: LOL, I am going slow
kmrhodes: I know but I love pictures!
ljcswartz: I was just trying to get only the special shots...
auntyalias: I'm going to put my cereal bowl and coffee cup in the
ljcswartz: saving pics
kmrhodes: ceral at 4:30 pm?
kmrhodes: opps, thats Eastern time!
auntyalias: Cereal for Lunch
auntyalias: quick bite when I put the item in the oven for the outer
kmrhodes: I had 3 peanut M&<'s
auntyalias: going to call out for Pizza, I'm NOT cooking today
kmrhodes: forgot there is potato salad in the frig
kmrhodes: made it yesterday
auntyalias: go grab a bite Karen
auntyalias: we got 7 minutes to go
kmrhodes: not time yet
auntyalias: and it's still going to be too hot to handle for a bit
kmrhodes: Donna's not home for another 30 min
kmrhodes: then she wants to wash her car
kmrhodes: so I got an hour at least
auntyalias: one thing I've not had to do since 1972
auntyalias: I've not driven since then
kmrhodes: been raining here almost every day
auntyalias: Said says I "ain't got the props" to drive, no guts
auntyalias: no mobility
kmrhodes: got 2 nice days right now
kmrhodes: then back to rain
kmrhodes: you need to drive NJ
kmrhodes: seeing you in a car would be like your Mugger stance!
ljcswartz: brb need a drink
auntyalias: LOL, I hate driving, I don't really like being in a car,
as such, a truck yes
auntyalias: a bus, no problem
auntyalias: a Tank, all the better
auntyalias: trains are good. It's the "impact" issue
kmrhodes: You need an armored car
auntyalias: cars are very small and crunchable, in my opinion, I'd
rather something more heafty around me
kmrhodes: like the banks use
auntyalias: Love half ton trucks
auntyalias: that's my size, or a Humvee
auntyalias: ya, that's the ticket
auntyalias: when I worked for Rock and Roll trucking, I loved the big
kmrhodes: Hey I sold a Dobby!
auntyalias: a bed, a fridge, good sound system
auntyalias: high in the saddle, what's a Dobby?
auntyalias: a dog?
kmrhodes: the House Elf from Harry Potter movie
auntyalias: Oh my goodness
auntyalias: got pix?
auntyalias: I'd best check the timer
auntyalias: couple of minutes still and then I'll take it out of the
oven and see if I can't coax the pre-cut lines apart
frogger70301: Karen, it's so cute! I absolutely love the frogs too!
kmrhodes: sold it to a postal clerk
kmrhodes: the Dobby
lommomy joined the room
auntyalias: There's one section
auntyalias: hot out of the oven, the pre-cut worked
kmrhodes: where's your oven mitts?
kmrhodes: dang girl, trying to get burned!
ljcswartz: I am having problems with screen shots
kmrhodes: whats happening Jackie?
ljcswartz: my print screen button is not getting a pic
kmrhodes: pc or mac?
ljcswartz: I think I hit the insert button.... it works now
ljcswartz: I missed a shot or two
auntyalias: Ok, so I cut along the pre-cut lines and pulled the
sections apart and then put them back together so they will cool next
to each other
auntyalias: The sheet was old and it cracked a bit
auntyalias: I'll have to do some post production embellishments on the
auntyalias: some vines or flowers or something to cover the cracks
kmrhodes: a nice vine, perhaps?
auntyalias: or maybe just some TLS and another curing
auntyalias: but you all are going to use fresh pressed sheets when you
kmrhodes: See, thats why I am your assistant!
auntyalias: but it worked, the theory worked
ljcswartz: still not getting the shots... Maybe someone needs to get
auntyalias: Yes and I did have to get my oven mits, Karen, LOL
auntyalias: hot hot hot
auntyalias: I'll get digi pix Jackie
auntyalias: don't sweat it honey
ljcswartz: I need to figure out what is happening though
auntyalias: Shall we do Roll Call since we're waiting for this to
auntyalias: NoraJean, San Francisco
kmrhodes: Karen, Gettysburg, PA
ljcswartz: Jackie md
meows3xx: Roni, Michigan
lommomy: Lisa New Jersey. I missed the demo I just found out about it,
I was away for the weekend
kmrhodes: we having a demo now Lisa
jude: Oh, jude, Tehachapi, CA
lommomy: I just tuned in
kmrhodes: pull up a chair and grab some clay
auntyalias: Lisa did you see the tute I put up this morning?
kmrhodes: You been quiet Jude
jude: I keep getting called away. I do catch up every once in a while.
lommomy: NJ the box looks great
lommomy: Just fini
lommomy: hed reading it
meows3xx: have to run, will check in later
meows3xx left the room
auntyalias: coolness, let me show you the foil I put so the outer
sheet didn't stick
Kathy (w8koqs3rd) joined the room
lommomy: Sorry Just finished reading it
ljcswartz: I may have it back...just restarted ps
lommomy: I wondered how that worked
w8koqs3rd left the room
lommomy: is the top one upside down?
auntyalias: now it is cool enough, but the bottom outer sheet cracked
a bit since it was old
auntyalias: oh, it's the top one since I have this upside down
kmrhodes: How old was the sheet, NJ
auntyalias: I made it upside down
auntyalias: that's ok, LOL
auntyalias: since October 2002
kmrhodes: teacher made a boo-boo! LOL
auntyalias: I'm a goof
auntyalias: There's one LARGE section and a small one instead of three
auntyalias: what a bust
jude: Excuse me? It's upside down? LOL!!
lommomy: looks great
auntyalias: Upside down and cock eyed
auntyalias: but one large section and one small still works
jude: Looks terrific, though, NJ.
auntyalias: even though we were aiming for three sections
auntyalias: we have to put some tubes on the side
ljcswartz: so how should it really go together?
auntyalias: It can go any way we want it to
auntyalias: one section
auntyalias: two or three or five
auntyalias: depending on how many compartments we want
auntyalias: I have room in this one for folding money and then coins
auntyalias: that's all
frogger70301: I've gotta get for a little bit. Gotta play like I'm
gonna get my house clean b4 hubby gets home.
frogger70301: I'll try to get back in a bit.
auntyalias: Ok Mitch, see ya later
kmrhodes: bye Mitch
frogger70301 left the room
bonsaikathy: bye itch
lommomy: did you put cornstarch on the foil?
bonsaikathy: That's what I get for typing with one hand and eating
with the other
bonsaikathy: that was supposed to be bye Mitch
auntyalias: LOL, Kathy I can totally relate
auntyalias: Lisa, I didn't dust the foil, used masking tape
auntyalias: to hold it in place
auntyalias: now if we made a thin top, added another bottom to the top
section we'd have gotten three sections
lommomy: clay doesn't stick to foil?
auntyalias: nope, doesn't stick
auntyalias: and that allowed us to get this over lap deal going on
auntyalias: let me save log while I'm thinking about it
Life is like a lump of clay, both are what you make of it.
