Totem Pooh

You are in "*g.MSATClayArt:1" ( )

halarkin: aah!
auntyalias: it was just a matter of time that my Yahoo would crash
lommomy joined the room
halarkin: another aftershock? are you ok?
auntyalias: no, just Yahoo being mean to me
auntyalias: just like everyone else
halarkin: oh *whew*
lommomy: glad it was just that
halarkin: cool!
jude: Got to go for now, but will be back later. Bye!
halarkin: bye!
lommomy: bye
auntyalias: See ya Jude
patab12000: I git bumpted off too, just as I was trying to ask a
quesstion, so the spots aew logs od umber and black, what color did
you use for the blend that you are wraping them in?
auntyalias: ok, the brown in this blend is a mix
wi1dangl: beautiful nj
auntyalias: raw sienna, pearl and a touch of yellow
auntyalias: then I blended it with pearl
auntyalias: for a ribbon
auntyalias: then the spots are burnt umber with gold
auntyalias: for the center of the spot
auntyalias: and black snakes around it
auntyalias: then those snakes are rolled into the ribbon that is the
auntyalias: we could do a fan fold
auntyalias: so the light side will come out on one end and not be in
the middle like that
halarkin: what kind of clay did you use? The burnt umber and the raw
sienna - did you mix those colors yourself?
auntyalias: I always use Premo, Karen at ClayAlley gives the list a
discount on pounds
auntyalias: just say that you're a list member for the discount
halarkin:  Yay! Thank you!
auntyalias: I think the fan fold would have served us better though
auntyalias: let's do another blend
auntyalias: bury some more spots but not do it jelly roll but do it a
fan fold
auntyalias: then we can have the light background on one side and the
dark background on the other side
auntyalias: then you can stack them
wi1dangl: I have a problem... ran out of brown, tried mixing my own,
but just can't seem to get it right...any ideas?
auntyalias: let me get you a link
auntyalias: Biz-Archive/ColorCards/Brown/Group-thm.htm
auntyalias: this is what I do
auntyalias: and if I have some copper I'll toss that in for some
shine, but the three primary colors should yield you a workable brown
auntyalias: mix that with white
auntyalias: mix that with a touch of black, or copper
auntyalias: and you'll get brown that will work for this. Anyway
auntyalias: no one is going to bust us for using pink and blue for our
leopard if we want to
halarkin: psychadelic leopard! I think i'll do that one.
wi1dangl: thanks...i'll try it again
patab12000: Funny, I get brown all the time, when I try to make purple
patab12000: is the web cam back, I dont see anything
halarkin: I have to go - my boy has to use the computer for
put-off-til-the-end homework. Bye!
halarkin left the room
lindaslists left the room
patab12000: I think that rolling and twisting is to speed up the
blending process? I have not tried that yet, I just fold in 1/2 and
run through the pasta machine
auntyalias: rolling and mashing and twisting will cut your blending
time to a quarter of what it was when you just folded it in half
lommomy: same snake as before?
auntyalias: yup
bonsaikathy: My internet has slowed to a crawl, I'm shutting down and
coming back in, see you in a few minutes
bonsaikathy left the room
auntyalias: since this is a wedge let's make it into a circle
lommomy: cool
wi1dangl: wow...gotta try that
auntyalias: well wait a minute
auntyalias: if we make this wedge into a circle
auntyalias: won't it turn out like the jelly roll?
lommomy: how about a square,
patab12000: wow, that is the best leoperd i have see.
greatauntjudy left the room
bonsaikathy joined the room
auntyalias: there
auntyalias: now shall we review?
auntyalias: do a blend
auntyalias: make your spots with one darker brown and three black
auntyalias: make your blend a ribbon
auntyalias: and fan fold the spots in that ribbon
auntyalias: reduce and cut and stack
auntyalias: slice and press
auntyalias: and you've got leopard that has a background that has
different shades
auntyalias: and I think it looks better than the run of the mill
leopard cane you see out there
auntyalias: any questions?
auntyalias: did everyone go to the kitchen for a munch?
bonsaikathy: did I lock up again or did it just get quiet all of a
bonsaikathy: lol
bonsaikathy: that's what I was wondering
auntyalias: shall we do a roll call then to see who is at their
bonsaikathy: good idea
wi1dangl: i'm here...Lynn from Atlanta
auntyalias: NoraJean, San Francisco, the Shake and Bake State
bonsaikathy: Kathy in E. TN
patab12000: I'm here
lommomy: Lisa New Jersey
auntyalias: is everyone working on their leopard cane?
bonsaikathy: I was finishing up the pooh scene
lommomy: I'm just watching and a learning
bonsaikathy: I just finished mixing up some grey, going to see about a
tiny elephant
lommomy: did you do the elephant yet? (on web cam)
bonsaikathy: no she hasn't worked on it yet
auntyalias: not yet
patab12000: Yea, I would like to see it too, Noah will need two of
those too
Jen (boozrkitty) joined the room
bonsaikathy: I just wanted to see what the chances were of actually
being able to do one and have it look like an elephant, lol
Jen: Ok, so how long is everyone going to be claying today?
patab12000 left the room
Jen: I had previous plans but they hadn't contacted me until just now
patab12000 joined the room
wi1dangl: I'll be here and back again...daughter wants the phone at
Jen: So I am going out but I'll be back around 9 or 10 central time
auntyalias: I'm going to be here until I fall over
auntyalias: that's 7 pacific?
Jen: I think so
auntyalias: I'll still be here
auntyalias: don't know what I'll be showing
auntyalias: but I'll be showing something
Jen: Wes has everything set up though
Jen: I think I'm going to start a carnival character
wi1dangl: 7 eastern
Jen: I have three more premade armitures to play with
patab12000: NJ, I don't need a demo, but could you sugest a formula
for skin for a Tiebetan?
auntyalias: hold up
auntyalias: Biz-Archive/Full-face-grp.htm
auntyalias: that might help with getting the asian eyes
auntyalias: although I'd darken the asian features, they have similar
coloring to American Indians
auntyalias: reddish hue with asian features
auntyalias: more asian nose though, pointy chins mostly
auntyalias: as for skin tone mixing
patab12000: thank you
auntyalias: I'd get a base skin color of raw sienna and white
auntyalias: for the basic beige skin tone
Jen: Oh, I almost forgot! My roommate found teh battery charger for
the camera. LOL... full step by step demos now!
auntyalias: then I'd darken it up with some burnt umber, a kiss of
cadmium red, or use copper
auntyalias: YOWIE WOWIE
auntyalias: I'd stay way with using translucents in skin tones
auntyalias: adding bits after the first curing has been proving to be
not as invisible as when I use white or pearl
auntyalias: some folks use a lot of translucent for skin, and I think
it would work for a mold where there's not going to be a lot of
dicking around like I do after the first curing
patab12000 left the room
patab12000 joined the room
wi1dangl: ok...see you all later...thanks NJ
wi1dangl left the room
Jen: Yeah, Wes can soulder armitures for me so the arms stay put
patab12000: back from looking at human skin, what are we watching with
the animal skin?
auntyalias: making a pinch pot with wedges
auntyalias: take 6 slices of stacked leopard spot, this one was done
the jelly roll way and I wasn't thrilled with it
auntyalias: so I rolled out that cane into a cone
auntyalias: and got different sized sections
patab12000: neet
auntyalias: stacked them for a wedge
auntyalias: sliced 6 slices and you attach them like you're making a
full skirt
auntyalias: just close up the "waist band"
auntyalias: once it's a circle
auntyalias: then you start jiggling the seams so they merge together
auntyalias: and you thin out and shape the bottom and work your way up
wi1dangl joined the room
auntyalias: when you want to close it for a neck, start squeezing on
the outside and push the shape out from the inside
meows3xx joined the room
auntyalias: got to close the drapes
meows3xx: hi everyone, Happy Memorial Day!
auntyalias: Yowie Meowie we got Cats!!
auntyalias: we've been on a feline cane thing today so far
meows3xx: is the webcam on? did I miss it all
auntyalias: the little tiger one came out the best
auntyalias: I thought you put the webcam on
An Invitation to view your Webcam was sent to meows3xx (5/26/03 4:10
auntyalias: just sent you an invite
meows3xx: darn, says the server is busy
auntyalias: rats

see if you can open my cam
auntyalias: there ya go
auntyalias: see my kitties
meows3xx: got it
meows3xx: aaawwwwwwwww
auntyalias: he's one slice of tiger cane
auntyalias: and the first mirror image of the chop and toss of the
tiger cane did his face and ears
auntyalias: the leopard one didn't turn out so well
auntyalias: I'm going to do another with a slice of this leopard cane
that has light and dark background
auntyalias: that's another thing we did so far today
patab12000: I think the one you did in a square was grear!
Jen: Ok guys, I'll be back in a few hours. Wish I hadn't already said
I'd go out, I was hoping my plans would change. Oh well, I'll be back.

pick a day and condtition it all so it's ready when you want to clay?
bonsaikathy: Sometimes I do and sometimes I don't

bonsaikathy: I put conditioned clay in baggies

dahs512: me too
auntyalias: that's a problem when I do pressed sheets
auntyalias: if they hang around too long
auntyalias: even protected

Jen: Well, I have two ideas on what to work on...
Jen: Either a figure or mini stained glass
bonsaikathy: Jen if you want to not bother with having to accept each
of us wanting to look at it, then you can go to file, preferences,
webcam and then set it at the bottom to accept all in the webcam
bonsaikathy: saves you some hassle
Jen: cool
bonsaikathy: Denise told us about it earlier
auntyalias: I'm going to make a pinch pot with tiger cane done as a
