Fearless Leader: where do you want me to start
sylsnovelties: Ok, got it NJ. I'll load these too.
Fearless Leader: from the armature and go to putting skin on
Fearless Leader: Cool, Syl, that's great
bonsaikathy: face if you could, want to watch that one more time and you are so fast with it
Fearless Leader: ok
Fearless Leader: let me move the cam a bit for that
bonsaikathy: do what ever you are set up for NJ, I'll enjoy it anyway
bonsaikathy: I just had one of the claymates to write me and tell me I bought some canes from her on ebay totaling 38$ and I've never bought any canes on ebay, wierd
bonsaikathy: wonder why she though it was me
Fearless Leader: check to see what information she has on you
sylsnovelties: heeheehee maybe it was a similar name.
Fearless Leader: and see if someone is buying under your name
Fearless Leader: but having a different address
Fearless Leader: I am setting up a rear view mirror to see over my shoulder to the webcam while I sculpt
Fearless Leader: I'm pretty much ready
bonsaikathy: ok
bonsaikathy: I'm ready too, and I'll check with her tomorrow, wrote and told her it wasnt' me
bonsaikathy: I can't type worth a hoot tonight
Fearless Leader: adding more clay to the face
Fearless Leader: cover your doll while working on it
Fearless Leader: a little recycled waxed paper will do
Fearless Leader: keeps it clean
bonsaikathy: figured that was what you were doing
sylsnovelties: Is the body cured?
Fearless Leader: no
Fearless Leader: raw from this afternoon
sylsnovelties: ok,
Fearless Leader: while I'm sculpting my back is to the monitor
Fearless Leader: so if I don't respond right away that's why
bonsaikathy: ok
bonsaikathy: Ok she took a teardrop of clay and placed it on the front of the face
bonsaikathy: she's now smoothing it out with the clay shaper
sylsnovelties: That helped make a chin?
bonsaikathy: what is the tool she is using
frogger70301: mapping out the features.
sylsnovelties: diagram.
bonsaikathy: poking holes for the eyes
frogger70301: looks like all the sketches of the aliens.
sylsnovelties: heeheehee
bonsaikathy: pushing the cheeks up 
bonsaikathy: yes it does, haha
frogger70301: only meaner.
bonsaikathy: man she does this fast
frogger70301: smoothing everything out.
frogger70301: when you get as much time under your clay belt as NJ, you will be doing it that fast too.
bonsaikathy: I guess
bonsaikathy: still smoothing out features and working on the nose
sylsnovelties: lips
frogger70301: Well, gals. I gotta go. Hubby just came home.
bonsaikathy: by Mitch
frogger70301: Talk to yall tommorrow.

bonsaikathy left the room
sylsnovelties: No problem NJ
Fearless Leader: I got caught up in sculpting and didn't realize I was out of frame
Fearless Leader: so what did you see when I was sculpting the face that surprised you
sylsnovelties: It usually wasn't for very long.
Fearless Leader: or made you say Ah Ha
sylsnovelties: What surprised me was how it looked male and then with a few pushes, looked female.
Fearless Leader: women's faces are softer lines
sylsnovelties: It sure softened up!
Fearless Leader: she needs that forehead made a little smaller
Fearless Leader: soften up the chin
Fearless Leader: raise the cheek bones
Fearless Leader: then she'll be more feminine
sylsnovelties: She is really gorgeous though.
Fearless Leader: I'll work on her tonight and finish her hands and feet
Fearless Leader: maybe tomorrow we'll give her some clay fabric clothing
sylsnovelties: It just amazes me to watch you do a face like that.
sylsnovelties: that would be fun to put clothes on her.
Fearless Leader: It's fun, if I remember to stay in frame
Fearless Leader: it's something I do for the kids
Fearless Leader: I'm the grandma one can ask "Make me a dog"
sylsnovelties: I'm a kid, at heart! heeheehee
Fearless Leader: LOL
Fearless Leader: and I do
Fearless Leader: LOL
sylsnovelties: Really!
sylsnovelties: You can make them anything they want!
Fearless Leader: I got the boys coming through here and I got to talk to them for a tick, how about we meet back in 10 minutes
Fearless Leader: and then I'll make what ever you and Niki want
Fearless Leader: how's that?
NikiT: cool
sylsnovelties: Sure fine. I'll go ahead and crop the screen shot.
Fearless Leader: ok, Niki figure out what you want me to make for you and I'll see you in 10 minutes
