Fearless Leader: the v is so
you don't have your upper foot all covered
Fearless Leader: ya, top over toe boomerang pattern piece
Fearless Leader: I shall attach it to the sole after I cut out another one
chenoa_2b: log save
buci131: what did she do? did she use the foot to fig out the size fo the toe?
chelyha: not sure...
chenoa_2b: Can you make patterns out of stiff paper to use again and again?
ladytex49: that is what it looks like to me...
chelyha: yes, card stock
ladytex49: I would think so...
buci131: she showed us that for the clothing
buci131: don't know why it wouldn't work for shoes
Fearless Leader: those are the heel covers
snooks2312: it does
Fearless Leader: I'll blunt cut their arms too
chenoa_2b: two boomerangs and to half circles
Fearless Leader: those are the basic shoe pieces
buci131: what thickness are these cane slices?
chenoa_2b: a pair of shoes in the rough!
Fearless Leader: half way
Fearless Leader: in the middle setting
Fearless Leader: if there's no questions I'll put one of these shoes together and stop at the heel
chenoa_2b: go for it
ladytex49: go for it..
buci131: good here
snooks2312: good here
buci131: oh, I forgot to ask if she used the foot to measure the toe for the shoe
buci131 left the room
buci131 joined the room
buci131: using the foot to do it
chenoa_2b: is she putting the cover over the edge of the sole? Or is she butting them up to it?
chenoa_2b: ok, overlapping
ladytex49: butting them it looks like
snooks2312: even with the sole
buci131: now the heel
buci131: and then removes before it gets stuck on the foot
chenoa_2b: did she overlap on those seems on the side?
Fearless Leader: questions
buci131: I don't know, my cam view got stuck again
chenoa_2b: did you overlap on the side seams?
jakmiami: yes...how did you measure for the topcap?
Fearless Leader: enough so they will stick together yes
buci131: thanks Judith
Fearless Leader: let me show you how I get the toe pattern
chenoa_2b: how do you avoid smearing?
chenoa_2b: lol a clog!
buci131: she's put here toe piece on the foot and trimmed away the excess
buci131: then trimmed out the inner part a bit so it doesn't cover the whoel foot
Fearless Leader: smearing... hmmm
jakmiami: got it...thx
Fearless Leader: I don't seem to get smears
Fearless Leader: because I make effort to press
chenoa_2b: do you smooth the seam?
Fearless Leader: not to drag
Fearless Leader: my fingers over the clay
Fearless Leader: I'll come in and press
Fearless Leader: jiggle seams out
buci131: do the clay jiggle
Fearless Leader: but I don't drag my finger tips over the clay
buci131: it's a dance
ladytex49: jiggle jiggle jiggle...
chenoa_2b: lol got that jiggle down!
Fearless Leader: Ok, any questions about non jiggling shoe patterns?
Fearless Leader: LOL
ladytex49 grabs buci131 and dances around the room
buci131: think I got it
buci131: heehee Loretta
jakmiami: then the back piece is done the same way?
snooks2312: got it
Fearless Leader: Yes Judith, depends
buci131: the heel?
chenoa_2b: jinx jakm
Fearless Leader: on if you're doing a sling back
Fearless Leader: or a mule
Fearless Leader: or a slipper
Fearless Leader: or a lumber jack boot
Fearless Leader: ya see?
Fearless Leader: lay the clay on the foot
Fearless Leader: and cut your patterns off like that
Fearless Leader: to start
Fearless Leader: after a while
Fearless Leader: you'll know the pattern shapes
Fearless Leader: you want to use
Fearless Leader: think of this in pearl
ladytex49: Do you cure the shoes on the foot?
Fearless Leader: or a golden green
chenoa_2b: can we make patterns out of stiff paper?
jakmiami: yes, i see. is the heel done separately?
Fearless Leader: no I cure them without the foot
Fearless Leader: Yes card stock is our friend for mini patterns
buci131: unless you're dressing a doll, right?
ladytex49: then how do you put them on the foot w/o breaking them?
buci131: then just cure it on the foot
Fearless Leader: now I'll do the heel if there's no questions about this basic pattern
chenoa_2b: I got it.
Fearless Leader: dolls are another story
Fearless Leader: if I am going to do a doll that the shoes are coming on and off
Fearless Leader: I do it
snooks2312: ok here
Fearless Leader: in GoodWill glove leather
Fearless Leader: find a lone glove
buci131: oh, ok
Fearless Leader: at GoodWill
Fearless Leader: the older the better
Fearless Leader: makes the best purses and shoes and vests for dolls
Fearless Leader: I use fabric tack
Fearless Leader: trick with boots
chenoa_2b: what about leather wallets and purses?
Fearless Leader: with ankles that don't flex
ladytex49: yeah I have a very thin leather coat...I have made shoes outta leather...
Fearless Leader: yes that too, anything, saddle bags even
Fearless Leader: boots
Fearless Leader: for ankles that don't flex
Fearless Leader: have to have an overlapping opening at the front of the boot
Fearless Leader: and then lace them up like Native Americans
ladytex49: but the leather needs to be pliable...supple I think is the word I am looking for..
buci131: that makes sense
Fearless Leader: that's what I did for Cowboy Kai
chenoa_2b: When are you going to write a book?
Fearless Leader: did him boots and moccisans
Fearless Leader: LOL
Fearless Leader: books... hmmm
Fearless Leader: how about DVD instead
Fearless Leader: I can do my stand up comedy and Karaoke
buci131: doesn't need to, just take all these logs and rambles and put them together in a book
Fearless Leader: as well
chenoa_2b: don't have a DVD player.... Yet!
Fearless Leader: Karen of ClayAlley is printing up my tutes for sales
buci131: yep, DVD is still a great idea
Fearless Leader: I'm planning video, cd and dvd
Fearless Leader: actually
Fearless Leader: books are going to be pamphlets
Fearless Leader: $5.00
Fearless Leader: for a tute with a ramble
chenoa_2b: Good! I need something I can go back to again and again! lol
Fearless Leader: that sort of thing
Fearless Leader: see Karen of ClayAlley and request a particular tute
Fearless Leader: she'll print it up
Fearless Leader: that's the plan anyway
ladytex49: yeah that is what I like...cuz I can lay it on my work table and refer back to it...
Fearless Leader: ok, let's get the heel on this shoe here
Fearless Leader: it's really easy
Fearless Leader: a cone of clay filler
Fearless Leader: a sheet of leopard to cover
Fearless Leader: stick it on the heel
Fearless Leader: and bend the shoe into the high heel shape
Fearless Leader: easy breezy
Fearless Leader: if there's no questions I'll go do it
chenoa_2b: lets go!
buci131: none here
ladytex49: lets goooo
buci131: cone of filler clay
buci131: wrap in leopard
buci131: cut to size
buci131: smooth a little
chenoa_2b: no seams
buci131: oops, not yet
buci131: now she's putting the cone back in and wrapping again with cane. trimming a little more
buci131: I think I lost her again...grrrrrrrr!
buci131: there she is
buci131: attach heel to shoe
buci131: with a little excess cane on the end of the heel to overlap the back of the shoe
chenoa_2b: shaping the heel
chenoa_2b: shaping the shoe into a high heel
buci131: trimming the heel
chenoa_2b: slicing off the excess from the heel
buci131: I think to do spike heels you'd have to use wire to add strength
ladytex49: yeah I would think so too..
chenoa_2b: now she is trimming off some of the upper shoe.
chenoa_2b: I love those little shoes!
buci131: earrings, necklace, charm bracelet
chenoa_2b: I just can't see cowboy Kie in them though. lol
buci131: everything can be turned into jewelry, heheh
