jakmiami joined the room
auntyalias: Hey Judith, packing up Rickie Beth's giftie bag
auntyalias: LOL
jakmiami: oohhh isn't that fun! I'm still drooling over mine!
wi1dangl joined the room
wi1dangl: Hello my claying friends.
auntyalias: Yo, sorry
auntyalias: saying good bye to a claymate who's been visiting
auntyalias: I'm showing her the color cards and she and Judith were
surprised at how small they are
jakmiami: believe me, the ones I did are much bigger!
wi1dangl: I need to do some color cards...someday...right now i'm
working on my first INRO
auntyalias: LOL, dinner plate sized?
auntyalias: Wow, your first Inro
auntyalias: that's great
auntyalias: I got all sorts of ideas on how to do the technique better
auntyalias: but we got a start on it at least
wi1dangl: yep...had to explain it to hubby
wi1dangl: what are you working on tonight nj?
auntyalias: what ever people want to see, I'm saying my good byes to
Rickie Beth here and I'll be back in a tiny bit
wi1dangl: k
josey59801 joined the room
auntyalias: I'm going to walk Rickie Beth to the bus stop and I'll be
back and you all can decide what we're going to do for demo, ok?
shargoose joined the room
shargoose left the room
auntyalias: back
josey59801 left the room
josey59801 joined the room
auntyalias: EvaP, you getting booted out by Yahoo?
josey59801: I think it was my computer that did it!
auntyalias: I just posted to the list that we're here
auntyalias: That little pot there is what Rickie Beth made when we had
one to one time
auntyalias: I'm holding it hostage
jakmiami left the room
jakmiami joined the room
auntyalias: Yo Judith
jakmiami: Hi
auntyalias: is that all your pictures in the In box with Epson
auntyalias: 56 pictures?

jakmiami: NJ: I'm having some problems getting the shots uploaded. For
some reason it keeps uploading the same shots over and over again. I
just deleted most of the 56...there are just 13 there now.
auntyalias: oh I had to refresh the page, now I see 13
auntyalias: how odd that you got repeats when you were uploading
jakmiami: I was going to try the next 10 and see what happens
auntyalias: ok, honey
jakmiami: it may be because I've been switching between screens to
keep up with the demo. If you're going to go on to something else,
I'll just drop out for a while and keep at it.
auntyalias: I don't know what we're going to do. Lynn and EvaP how
does sculpting sound to you?
auntyalias: or what's your pleasure?
wi1dangl: sounds good to me
auntyalias: Judith since you're in the East Coast and so is Lynn
josey59801: Sounds good to me too
auntyalias: how about some sculpting and you can upload the pictures
auntyalias: Judith can upload the pictures later or tomorrow morning
jakmiami: okay with me!
wi1dangl: yep
auntyalias: Ok, now what scale should we sculpt?
Roni (meows3xx) joined the room
auntyalias: which part of the sculpting process do you want to review
auntyalias: Howdy Roni
Roni: HOWDY!
wi1dangl: anything is fine with me nj...
auntyalias: shall we do one inch scale? Keep working on this full
sized face?
auntyalias: I was thinking if we worked on this full sized face we
should aim for a smile
auntyalias: work the muscles around the mouth
auntyalias: squint the eyes
auntyalias: raise the eyebrown
auntyalias: eyebrows too
auntyalias: LOL
auntyalias: that sort of thing
jakmiami: well, right now I have a question on what you've already are you going to cure it (assuming that you would)? Can you
bake it on the form?
auntyalias: get some expression in a otherwise expressionless face
Roni: anything is great with me, popping in and out, helping Bob lay
marble tile
auntyalias: I wouldn't cure it on the form, I'd just wad up some foil
to prop it up
auntyalias: it'll hold itself up for it's two sheets of foil and all
that clay
auntyalias: but for prudence I'd use some wadded up foil to prop it
and then cure it
auntyalias: it'll hold its shape
auntyalias: Ok, Roni, we've been working on this full sized face
Roni: been watching a lot of it
auntyalias: this pentagon I drew around the mouth
auntyalias: was where I laid down snakes of clay
auntyalias: and then pushed inward for lips
auntyalias: that way we get the muscles around the mouth
auntyalias: when we take that relaxed mouth
auntyalias: and pull the clay outward to the cheeks
auntyalias: that added clay GOT to go somewhere
auntyalias: and that's our laugh lines
auntyalias: the muscles that get taunt below the round of the cheek
when we smile
auntyalias: the lips will thin out
auntyalias: maybe teeth will be exposed
auntyalias: and the flexed muscles translate to added clay that we put
auntyalias: laying down the pentagon snake
auntyalias: following me so far?
Roni: yep
jakmiami: yep
auntyalias: let me wash my hands first and then we'll stretch a smile
on this face
josey59801: yes
wi1dangl: yep
Roni: k, he looks Asian, very wise
auntyalias: Ever face I make when I'm not following a picture turns
out Asian
auntyalias: we do what we know best
auntyalias: and I can do Asians in my sleep
auntyalias: LOL
auntyalias: wonder why?
auntyalias: LOL
auntyalias: ok, I'm working on this theory, it's been in my head, but
I figure it got to work
auntyalias: put muscles where muscles are when relaxed
auntyalias: if the face is going to smile
auntyalias: then let's take that relaxed muscle mass and push it out
auntyalias: let's see if it makes laugh lines or I'm just smoking too
much crack
auntyalias: let me save log at this point
auntyalias: done, are we ready?
auntyalias: fixing to smile or what
Roni: ready
josey59801: smile sounds good
dahs512 joined the room
bonsaikathy joined the room
dahs512: Smiling Sadie
auntyalias: LOL
bonsaikathy: look at the wonderful wrinkles
bonsaikathy: gives character
auntyalias: taking a break to say Howdy
dahs512: Don't encourage her
auntyalias: LOL
auntyalias: ok, trick of the day
auntyalias: a pentagon of snakes around the bottom of the flat face
auntyalias: to build up muscle mass so when we smile
bonsaikathy: I'm still reeling over the eyewidth chart and you're
giving more hints
auntyalias: we got clay to smile with
bonsaikathy: lol
auntyalias: save log, I got tons of new ideas with this basic
auntyalias: give enough clay for a relaxed face, lips are not logs on
a board
auntyalias: they are sloping hills
dahs512: I seem to make the top lip protrude more than I should
auntyalias: the lips grow up and out of the area around the mouth in a
pentagon shape
auntyalias: build up the muscle around the mouth and then form the
frogger70301 joined the room
auntyalias: then you can make smiles because you have that built up
muscle mass already there, lips added to a face
auntyalias: look like lips added to a face
auntyalias: but lips that arise
auntyalias: out of the muscle mass
auntyalias: allow us to build in expression down the road
auntyalias: shall I do a flat face and go over this pentagon lip trick
auntyalias: I got an upper face already done, two in fact
dahs512: ok, if noone minds
auntyalias: just lips to do on these two fellows
auntyalias: the skin tone won't match but I don't care
auntyalias: show of fingertips
auntyalias: two sets of lips, going over this pentagon trick?
wi1dangl: yep
jakmiami: ok
Roni: k
auntyalias: let's do it then
dahs512: yes
josey59801: ok
dahs512: Did Katie pop in here today?
auntyalias: blue eyes or brown?
dahs512: blue
wi1dangl: blue
bonsaikathy: ok I'm brown eyed, lol
bonsaikathy: 1 vote for brown
Roni: green? lol
Roni: figured out why they look Asian, no bags under the eyes

dahs512: Well hello eveyone!
dahs512: oh ok
Roni: k, must have missed when she left
dahs512: i wouldn't leave

auntyalias: we got eye building shots
auntyalias: Judith did you get the Pentagon mouth trick?
jakmiami: i got lots of 'em, just need to get them uploaded
auntyalias: she got tons
auntyalias: ok, so we can just review this and not sweat the shots
dahs512: ok, I'll relax then
auntyalias: unless folks got an itchy trigger finger
auntyalias: let me pull out the eyeball width chart
dahs512: lol
bonsaikathy: she's tripping me out with this eyeball chart
auntyalias: shoot that
bonsaikathy: it's to neat
bonsaikathy: I did
bonsaikathy: I'll send them to you NJ
Roni: Kathy, would you send it to me? Please
auntyalias: or send one through clay pix
auntyalias: then everyone on clay pix will have it for reference
bonsaikathy: Ok that's a good ide
auntyalias: that's faster, no?
bonsaikathy: idea
dahs512: So you are saying we need to "eyeball" the face
dahs512: heheh
auntyalias: LOL, yes exactly
auntyalias: I told you I always "eyeball" stuff, well that's literal
and figurative
bonsaikathy: Roni do you still need it honey or are you a member of
Clay pix
Roni: don't think I'm a member, email is meow(snip email address)
bonsaikathy: ok will send it to you too individually, it's really a
neat thing, I do recommend you join the clay pics list you'll like it
auntyalias: see the pentagon I just drew on this face
dahs512: You are missing some good pics
Roni: yes
auntyalias: I'm going to lay down snakes of clay on these lines
dahs512: Roni, you should join just to see, read it from the web
auntyalias: and then moosh the clay inward towards the lip
auntyalias: makes an automatic part in the upper lip that way
Roni: what's the url?
auntyalias: as well as add clay mass to make smiles with
dahs512: (ClayPix retired)

snakes, NJ
dahs512: no, a different group altogether
auntyalias: let me show you the picture
dahs512: I'm sure you've been watching too much science fiction
auntyalias: Biz-Archive/Sculpt/RainingMen/FaceLayers-1.htm

meows3xx left the room
dahs512: you know how there is one stroke painting, i think sometimes

dahs512: Hi Sharon
shargoose: Hi
shargoose: Having a baaaad day
dahs512: oh, I'm so sorry
shargoose: Me too!!
dahs512: maybe we can lighten it up a little for you
shargoose: Hope so.
shargoose: I really wanted to see this demo.
shargoose: Hope there will be some screen shots
dahs512: we are glad you got here
shargoose: You wouldn't believe
dahs512: oh yes, lot's of shots, and I bet NJ would do it one more
shargoose: Not sure I'll last long
shargoose: Pretty tired after the day from H--l
dahs512: well someone got lots of screen shots
shargoose: Good
jakmiami: yes, it will just take a bit of time to get them uploaded
shargoose: That's OK
shargoose: I've done the shots before and know it takes time
dahs512: Nj is giving us some lip
dahs512: she's good at that
auntyalias: Hey I resemble that remark
shargoose: Ever had a day where everything plus more went wrong?
dahs512: oh yeah
shargoose: The good news is the bird is alive
shargoose: TOG just about croaked on me today
shargoose: He's OK now
shargoose: I love seeing this larger head sculpt
shargoose: Easier to see the details
dahs512: Your bird is sick?
shargoose: It's a loooong story
dahs512: my dog has heartworms
shargoose: No, jus inaled some water and he couldn't breath
dahs512: oh, scarey
shargoose: I was doing CPR on a cockatiel!!
dahs512: he's ok now?
shargoose: But that was just the last in a long series of stuff
dahs512: keep him warm and toasty, till he dries out a little
shargoose: Yes, I think he's OK.
shargoose: Vet said to call him if he gets lethagic, off food etc.
shargoose: He could get pneumonia from this
dahs512: need a bird thermometer
shargoose: He's all tucked into his little cage
shargoose: safe and warm
shargoose: Ya, right, a bird thermometer
dahs512: good
shargoose: And where pray tell would I stick that?
dahs512: lol
jakmiami: under his wing of course
dahs512: he probably could use some sunshine for the next few days
shargoose: Never thought of that
shargoose: You can tell where my mind is!!
shargoose: Did NJ use foil for most of the head armature?
shargoose: Would take a lot of clay if she didn't
dahs512: she makes these like a mask
auntyalias: got a whole housefull of men come through
auntyalias: sorry
dahs512: on a premade armature wrapped in foil
dahs512: i wanna seeeeee!!!!!
shargoose: Cool
auntyalias: got Said, Dean, Mohammad and Brett just come through,
Dean's birthday
auntyalias: LOL, when they come through I'll grab shots of them
shargoose: Happy Birthday Dean
dahs512: HB DEAN
dahs512: show us your face
shargoose: Yes, we need to see them
dahs512: Happy Birthday Dean
auntyalias: he's tripped out
wi1dangl: Happy Birthday To YOU
auntyalias: and says thank you
dahs512: He's a shy one
auntyalias: He's 24 today
dahs512: and a young one
shargoose: He can stay and model for us!!
auntyalias: got 4 young ones bopping through just now
jakmiami: hate to tell you but he's better looking than that face!
auntyalias: no kidding
dahs512: at 24 they don't sit still long enough
auntyalias: well this upper face wasn't a great fit, it was just a
half face I had lying about
auntyalias: next time bigger snakes for the pentagon
jakmiami: oh lord NJ don't take me seriously!!!
dahs512: I see where you are heading with this though
dahs512: I've been seriously studying anatomy
dahs512: to be able to "see" better
shargoose: That's great
dahs512: Your faces tape got me started
shargoose: I studied anatomy a long time ago
shargoose: I need a refresher course!!
dahs512: For years i had been unable to see into someones face
dahs512: to see the skull
dahs512: now i know that there is more to it than that
shargoose: I saw a neat show on reconstructing the face of the Iceman
shargoose: The sculptor was so great.
dahs512: that kind of stuff is very exciting
dahs512: to build a face is the way i am looking at it
shargoose: He added muscles and then the skin and there was "the
dahs512: inside to outside
shargoose: It's a real talent.
dahs512: muscle fat skin
dahs512: bone muscle fat skin
shargoose: I just look at the face and see shapes, like round here and
square ther
dahs512: another journey of mine
dahs512: i can't do it that way because i believe it should be a
certain way
dahs512: an it shouldn't
shargoose: Well, I think your way is good.
shargoose: I should concentrate on doing it that way
dahs512: thanks, but I am so anal
shargoose: LOL
dahs512: it takes me so long
shargoose: Me too
dahs512: NJ is easy breezy
shargoose: But I just putz around until I get it the way I want
dahs512: that is a good set of smackers there, NJ
shargoose: I know, she's so fast and good!!
shargoose: Noses are my problem
dahs512: I have been immersing myself into sculpture, anatomy, faces,
shargoose: Either too tiny or way tooo big
dahs512: dolls, videos, books
dahs512: mine are usually too big
shargoose: I guess, I go just for the whole effect.
dahs512: but i am not afraid to whack it off
shargoose: Imean when I do a fairy, I try to capture her essence
auntyalias: well I got to drink my coffee while it's still warm
shargoose: I use her whoe pose and body to try to convey what she is
auntyalias: I know this seems like a real pain in the butt way of
doing lips
auntyalias: but you get that softly rise of flesh to make the lips
shargoose: They look very good
auntyalias: as part of the muscles of the face and not like Mr. Bill's
logs on a flat surface sort of lips
shargoose: LOL
auntyalias: Oh Nooooo, Mr. Bill!!
shargoose: Not Big Ubangie lips either
auntyalias: not unless that's your aim
shargoose: I did one that looked like a bee stung her mouth
shargoose: That wasn't my intent!!
auntyalias: now depending on how much muscle you put around the mouth
and add to the cheeks, you'll get different looks
shargoose: So she got a bigger chin and more cheeks from the left over
swollen mouth!
auntyalias: with the pentagon snakes you can see where we'll put laugh
lines if we thin out the lips into a real big smile
auntyalias: that's the ticket Sharon
auntyalias: move that clay
shargoose: I don't think I could do a big face like this one, NJ
shargoose: I'm so used to working small
dahs512 left the room
dahs512 joined the room
dahs512: lost electricity for a sec
dahs512: had to reboot
shargoose: You having storms?
dahs512: no
dahs512: who knows
shargoose: We're rural and I know what you mean!!
shargoose: If a fly buzzes by the lines we go out
dahs512: I used to worry that it was a car accident when it would
dahs512: somebody hit a pole
dahs512: but such is not the case
dahs512: it's gremlins
shargoose: With us it's a moose or a bear that hits it!
dahs512: lol
auntyalias: we we want a sad face we move the mass down
auntyalias: purse the lips tight
shargoose: I'm going to boogie and get some shut eye
dahs512: I see this face NJ is doing as a bum of a guy
auntyalias: pucker them in
shargoose: Early for me but it has been A DAY!
auntyalias: if we want a happy face
auntyalias: we pull that muscle mass upward
auntyalias: give some laugh lines
dahs512 left the room
dahs512 joined the room
shargoose left the room
dahs512: man what a line to get bumped after
auntyalias: what line was that?
auntyalias: here's the happy side, with the muscle mass pulled upward
to the cheek, the lips pulled thin to get a laugh line
dahs512: what i meant was what he should be made into is a bum
auntyalias: a happy bum from this side
dahs512: it has to do with the dark chin]
dahs512: yes a happy one
auntyalias: just showing you what the same amount of clay will do
depending on if you pull it down like this for a sad face
auntyalias: or
auntyalias: pull it upward for a smile
dahs512: it is the cockeye grin that might be lending to my
auntyalias: not having the sides the same looks really crazy
dahs512: xactly
auntyalias: uneven smiles
dahs512: but i like that
dahs512: he is really thinking about something
auntyalias: holding a funny secret
dahs512: yes, exactly
dahs512: like a memory
dahs512: of a sweet kiss
jakmiami: Well, quite an evening...but it's time for me to go. I'll
work on the photos tomorrow. Night all
auntyalias: Nighty Night Judith and thank you for the screen shots
wi1dangl: nite
dahs512: nite sweetie, i'm looking forward to it
jakmiami left the room
dahs512: NJ did you see my newest head
dahs512: it's seemingly androgenious
auntyalias: the one that you were going to do the mold with?
dahs512: yes
auntyalias: I did see it and there's a couple of things I wanted to
dahs512: You got me started on this face journey a long time ago
auntyalias: the muscle besides the nose that goes into the cheeks
dahs512: yes?
auntyalias: give it a little dip
auntyalias: round up the cheek more going towards the ears, give a
space for the tears to fall
dahs512: They were gaunter before i added
dahs512: ok, i see
auntyalias: also, the ears. I've been thinking about the ears and I
think that they mostly end up at the half way mark going over the head
auntyalias: think of a head band
dahs512: lemme turn the cam on?
auntyalias: to hold your hair back
auntyalias: it stops at the ears and that's mostly at the center of
the top of the head, no?

doglove22000: yes, a passion
dahs512: one full of expression
doglove22000: i am actually rather shy so I have a hard time putting

auntyalias: yes I did
auntyalias: for this one half face was already cured
dahs512: I'm gonna make the mold
auntyalias: like this one
auntyalias: and then I added a lower face, now covering it with the
same color clay as the lower part of the face
doglove22000: it is so amazing in real life the eyeball cane
twinmom94002: kewl...did you use a mask mold or form it on the foil?
twinmom94002: sorry...i missed the earlier demo

auntyalias: Sometimes that happens
dahs512: Did Ruth enjoy the opening
auntyalias: Oh she was delighted
auntyalias: I waited until it was daylight so the colors would be best
auntyalias: and she loved the buttons
auntyalias: and the Tropical Cane
auntyalias: your cane work is much better than mine
auntyalias: you should do a demo on cane building
dahs512: I'm anal, i keep tellin' ya

doglove22000: his face is ina pile of blue goop
dahs512: lol
dahs512: gotta wait six minutes
dahs512: and i forgat to check the time, so let's say four more
dahs512: see this line?
dahs512: I shoulda made the mold that deep
dahs512: let's see if we can add to it
twinmom94002 left the room
twinmom94002 joined the room
twinmom94002: rebooted...maybe now i can stay
twinmom94002: do you have any good facial anatomy links, NJ?
auntyalias: did you check out the anatomy section I have on my site?
twinmom94002: not yet...your site is a myriad wonders...i haven't
gotten 1/2 way through it!
auntyalias: that's where I got the idea of putting a Pentagon of
snakes around the mouth to build up the lips
twinmom94002: very kewl, thanks
auntyalias: caught a big fat air bubble with this layer of raw clay
and the cured top of the eyes
dahs512: poke it
doglove22000: the blue cast looks really good
dahs512: I burnt the oriinal with the heat gun
doglove22000: oh his nose!
twinmom94002: is that Alley Goop, denise?
dahs512: yeppers
doglove22000: NJ's is such a talented teacher that even I could (one
day) sculpt
dahs512: you can
dahs512: get that clay out and do it
doglove22000: everytime i tried i ended up with monkey looking people
doglove22000: but i learned a lottoday about the clay and
relationships of the eye to the face
dahs512: it's all in the eyes right
dahs512: ?
doglove22000: yes
doglove22000: maybe NJ could show the picture again of the eyes
doglove22000: in case you did not see it today
dahs512: i saw it
twinmom94002: what a marvelous expression that face has, nj!
auntyalias: thanks Libby
auntyalias: I need to add more to his forehead
auntyalias: but covering the cured clay with the raw to even out the
skin solved some problems with the eyes being too bugged out
twinmom94002: you make it look so easy
auntyalias: with a little bit of home work and putting the clay on the
skull form in the way muscles are mapped out on the face
auntyalias: it is easier
auntyalias: it also just seems more logical
auntyalias: ya know?
twinmom94002: i noticed you construct the eyes just like real eyes
(w/root & all)
auntyalias: In the old tute I did
auntyalias: when I do demo I just lay eyeball iris cane down
auntyalias: but I do feel that having a socket
auntyalias: and having at least a half round ball for the eyeball
auntyalias: before the lids get put is the easiest way to do eyes
auntyalias: looks like a Japanese guy with blue contact lenses
auntyalias: Rickie did your SO get home from work?
auntyalias: I'm wondering how he liked his tin
auntyalias: a penny for size reference
dahs512: NJ, my mold worked oerfectly
