auntyalias: let's turn off the over head light and hey, it still looks
auntyalias: I reduced it to show we can do mini candy corn with the

Or only in the Chat room?
auntyalias: good old stand by, gold and black
ljcswartz: here is the only place I know of right now
Katie: ok, thanks
ljcswartz: actually someone is doing a Sat. demo
ljcswartz: here?
auntyalias: There's a list of demo chat rooms that are outside of our
list and they can be found at glass attic
auntyalias: all I know of is I do Mondays and Thursdays mostly and the
other Moderators fill in with demos as they can when I'm away from the
list half the week
auntyalias: also for someone new to polymer clay in general that link
is a font of information
auntyalias: text based and from a bunch of different sources
auntyalias: from A to Z, Diane Black has been gathering clay facts for
folks and it's the first place everyone starts, including me
auntyalias: back in the day
dahs512: On the Yahoo MSATClayArt page we also have a calendar that is
semi updated
auntyalias: Ok, Who can tell me what we see here, what made this clay
auntyalias: what technique?
ljcswartz: gold black..stacked
wi1dangl: black and gold leaf cane
wi1dangl: slices pressed on black background sheet
auntyalias: what did we have to do to get from stacked sheets to that
leaf design?
ljcswartz: linedin the vein and outside
auntyalias: the chevron flip
ljcswartz: pretty
ljcswartz: glassattic is wonderful.... and I get lost there as much as
on NJ's site
Katie: Will definitely go look at it later tonight.
auntyalias: here are some chevron flip examples from a demo at the end
of last month
ljcswartz: chevron flip
auntyalias: Biz-Archive/OnSiteFlowers
auntyalias: this is the page for leaves and flowers
auntyalias: on my site
auntyalias: just two colors here gang, just putting two colors through
a basic move
auntyalias: stacked sheets
auntyalias: chevron flip
auntyalias: line with center vein and outer edge
auntyalias: reduce
wi1dangl: a wonderful wealth of clay information
auntyalias: slice and put on a black sheet and press
auntyalias: if we cut a head hole in the center of this sheet, we can
drape it on our figure here and not worry about the body detail all
that much
emato (emato2) joined the room
merrie60us joined the room
auntyalias: Karin, welcome back
emato: Hi !
auntyalias: Welcome Merrie
auntyalias: I got a sheet here of pressed gold and black leaves
auntyalias: I have a figure with only hands and feet detailed somewhat
and no face, we also got a new cam Merrie, thanks to the list
merrie60us: the picture is great
auntyalias: ain't it though
auntyalias: I'm just chunked
auntyalias: this is without over head light, and at 90 degrees I can
do without that light heating me up
auntyalias: so I'm thinking we should drape this figure here with this
sheet, what do you say, shall we begin?

auntyalias (5:23:51 PM): I have a bit of torn hem there and I'm going to see if
I can hide it with the magic box
dahs512 (5:24:37 PM): natural pose
auntyalias (5:26:31 PM): so without a plan
auntyalias (5:26:37 PM): and using the first clay sheet I found
auntyalias (5:26:52 PM): a personality starts to come out of the figure
dahs512 (5:27:00 PM): yes it did
crzy4dzny (5:27:01 PM): fantastic
auntyalias (5:27:05 PM): now it's a woman
emato2 (5:27:11 PM): You think?
auntyalias (5:27:13 PM): because the drapes allowed me to fake breasts
auntyalias (5:27:36 PM): If I sculpt a female's face and add hair
jakmiami (5:28:00 PM): oh blast
emato2 (5:28:02 PM): humm I got used to him feeling like him ?//
auntyalias left the room
auntyalias joined the room

patab12000 joined the room
jakmiami (5:31:44 PM): it's like a magic act right in front of our eyes!
emato2 (5:32:41 PM): It is!
crzy4dzny (5:33:04 PM): is the face always done last?
jakmiami (5:33:54 PM): well no, not if she knows what it's going to be from the
crzy4dzny (5:34:03 PM): oh.
crzy4dzny (5:34:10 PM): is it baked after shes done?
emato2 (5:34:40 PM): seems like it would be harder to do now -- and not mess up
the cloth (not for NJ I know)
jakmiami (5:34:56 PM): eventually. sometimes it can be quite a while if she
decides she's not really finished with it.
greatauntjudy (5:35:02 PM): She sometimes wraps the figure in waxed paper to
work on the head/face.
crzy4dzny (5:35:12 PM): ok
emato2 (5:36:08 PM): That's right, she did that with the Queen didn't she?
Roni (meows3xx) joined the room
dahs512 (5:43:48 PM): Having a webcam to look at what you are working on helps
dahs512 (5:44:08 PM): it gives you a different angle
emato2 (5:44:20 PM): It reminds me of a Sumerian King
crzy4dzny (5:44:23 PM): what is the tool called that she's using?
meows3xx (5:44:31 PM): hi everyone, love the new cam NJ, much brighter and
clearer on this end
jakmiami (5:44:39 PM): i was thinking chinese peasant lady
dahs512 (5:44:44 PM): it is a clay shaper and it comes in real handy
crzy4dzny (5:44:53 PM): thank-you
dahs512 (5:45:18 PM): has them
crzy4dzny (5:46:17 PM): Just went there. Yes, lots of things. thanks
emato2 (5:47:20 PM): I wish clayalley could carry Puppen Fimo
patab12000 (5:47:50 PM): Puppen Fimo?
emato2 (5:47:56 PM): Yes
greatauntjudy (5:48:24 PM): Did you ask Karen? It might be something she can
emato2 (5:48:52 PM): I am trying to loosen up some, but I am so far still more
secure with Puppen Fimo for some things
greatauntjudy (5:48:59 PM): I'
greatauntjudy (5:49:07 PM): 'vejeez...
greatauntjudy (5:49:27 PM): I've never heard of it.
techi_mom56 joined the room
greatauntjudy (5:49:47 PM): Fingers aren't working either.\
dahs512 (5:50:31 PM): what adifference this cam makes
greatauntjudy (5:50:35 PM): The figure reminds me of one my uncle brought back
from Japan. So similar.
emato2 (5:50:42 PM): It comes in larger size blocks -- big ones only in white or
pink. It's got the properties of Fimo - but is a little softer to get started.
Kind of like mixing soft Fimo with Classic only it's very strong
greatauntjudy (5:51:05 PM): Is it made by the Fimo folks?
auntyalias (5:51:24 PM): ok, taking a sculpting break here
dahs512 (5:51:33 PM): i bet
crzy4dzny (5:51:34 PM): Your doing a great job
greatauntjudy (5:51:37 PM): The pose on that is great, NJ.
jakmiami (5:51:43 PM): well, for the figure, not the break LOL
auntyalias (5:51:45 PM): going to go get some juice and sprintz the curtains
with water to cool off the room
emato2 (5:51:54 PM): you are birthing !
greatauntjudy (5:52:00 PM): GASP!
auntyalias (5:52:04 PM): Oddly enough that pose was born from having a torn hem
auntyalias (5:52:06 PM): to hide
greatauntjudy (5:52:12 PM): Looks great.
auntyalias (5:52:21 PM): I don't feel comfortable with armatures that are ridig
and a preset plan
emato2 (5:52:22 PM): I like the pose a lot
auntyalias (5:52:34 PM): I'd rather have the figure tell me what it needs to be
greatauntjudy (5:52:41 PM): Like he's relaxing and having a conversation with
greatauntjudy (5:53:14 PM): Okie, go spritz and get your juice.
greatauntjudy (5:53:17 PM):
auntyalias (5:53:26 PM): LOL
rkymtnhy2002 left the room
emato2 (5:54:35 PM): that's why I like watching NJ so much -- she is so free and
the figures reflect that. I began with a ridged approach and now I would like to
loosen up ...
emato2 left the room
greatauntjudy (5:55:00 PM): You will find a lot of that here.
greatauntjudy (5:55:31 PM): It's very relaxed and whatever happens, just
jakmiami left the room
dahs512 (5:57:46 PM): it's hoppin' and a poppin' in yahoo land

jakmiami (5:58:54 PM): i was just checking the screen shots i've been
taking...they are soooo much better than with the old cam! absolutely no
jakmiami (5:59:18 PM): i don't have the whole demo, but i'll post some samples
on the pix list tomorrow
meows3xx (5:59:25 PM): does anyone know what kind of cam NJ got?
jakmiami (5:59:39 PM): it's the logitech pro 4000
meows3xx (5:59:49 PM): thank you
techi_mom56 (5:59:57 PM): an awesome camera...i have one also...
emato (emato2) joined the room
meows3xx (6:00:18 PM): I have a logitech, but it's the cheapie, lol
techi_mom56 (6:00:55 PM): my first one was...made me crazy...gave it to my son

jakmiami (6:01:07 PM): well, i am definitely going to replace my old one with
auntyalias (6:01:13 PM): back
meows3xx (6:01:14 PM): ummm, good idea
auntyalias (6:01:19 PM): spritzed everything including James
dahs512 (6:01:31 PM): lol
auntyalias (6:01:40 PM): and it really cools the place, spritzing the curtains
and all the tents with a mist of water
auntyalias (6:01:43 PM): old Egyptian trick
auntyalias (6:01:51 PM): just need slaves to keep it going at the right level
techi_mom56 (6:02:02 PM): watch for them on sale....but worth it even if not on
dahs512 (6:02:09 PM): they didn't have spritzers i bet
meows3xx (6:02:13 PM): I will
jakmiami (6:02:15 PM): NJ, i took some test screen shots and will send a few
thru the pix list so everyone can see how great they are
auntyalias (6:02:46 PM): they had adomizers, also a bent and broken reed, blow
over the upstanding one while the end is in water and it'll sprize, that's how
you set chalk drawings
auntyalias (6:02:58 PM): Ok, Judith, that'll be great
auntyalias (6:03:05 PM): I'm just drinking my lemonade
auntyalias (6:03:08 PM): and spritzing myself
jakmiami (6:03:25 PM): brb
dahs512 (6:04:39 PM): oh
auntyalias (6:04:42 PM): yes
auntyalias (6:04:54 PM): or what that supposed to be "ok"?
dahs512 (6:05:08 PM): I have some glasses for testing...wanna see
auntyalias (6:05:16 PM): sure, let's see
dahs512 (6:05:17 PM): oh is for the spritzer
auntyalias (6:06:00 PM): I'll show you the tool I have, later on and it's just
two tubes at right angles to each other, blow on the top one over the one stuck
in the fluid and it'll atomize liquid
auntyalias (6:06:17 PM): Oh Hey oh Hey
auntyalias (6:06:29 PM): and you bent them on his face for fitting?
auntyalias (6:06:34 PM): you got a bunch of them
dahs512 (6:06:59 PM): wire and liquid black clay
auntyalias (6:07:02 PM): They look great, are you going to cure them now?
auntyalias (6:07:11 PM): look hella better than mine
auntyalias (6:07:12 PM): LOL
dahs512 (6:07:12 PM): in a minute
auntyalias (6:07:14 PM): good
dahs512 (6:07:36 PM): but experimenting
dahs512 (6:07:48 PM): i don't know if they will hold together
dahs512 (6:08:21 PM): these are like you made only laying in the black tls
auntyalias (6:08:21 PM): something about the glasses just sets a personality
with a face
auntyalias (6:08:29 PM): ok
dahs512 (6:08:52 PM): these are pieces of wire balanced in black tls
auntyalias (6:09:29 PM): Prince as Elvis looks totally goofy in the background
auntyalias (6:09:35 PM): it cracks me up
auntyalias (6:09:42 PM): oh wow, on glass
dahs512 (6:09:56 PM): yes
auntyalias (6:09:58 PM): you going to use the heat gun or put them in the oven

lommomy (6:11:59 PM): what have you all been working on?
auntyalias (6:12:26 PM): Draping fabric on a figure in the foreground and two
toned sunglasses for Prince as Elvis in the background
lommomy (6:12:29 PM): camra takes a good image
lommomy (6:12:56 PM): your figure looks great
lommomy (6:13:11 PM): I see Elvis
auntyalias (6:13:17 PM): took a rectangle sheet and cut a hole out for the head
and then draped it on the figure
jakmiami left the room

auntyalias (6:14:08 PM): speaking of which I'm going to get some more juice
auntyalias (6:14:09 PM): brb
emato2 (6:14:21 PM): When you said befor about putting the glasses in the
freezer after they cooked -- why? what does that do?
auntyalias (6:14:46 PM): so the translucent will cool quickly and be as clear as
I can get it
auntyalias (6:14:55 PM): also it's faster for folks in demo, translucent or no
auntyalias (6:15:07 PM): waiting for things to cool down on a hot day takes
everyone's time
auntyalias (6:15:08 PM): brb
emato2 (6:16:17 PM): Oh. ok. but it helps it be more translucent too?
auntyalias (6:16:26 PM): back
crzy4dzny (6:16:32 PM): If NJ talked, would we be able to hear her?
auntyalias (6:16:35 PM): for the glasses, yes
emato2 (6:16:53 PM): they sure did come out good
auntyalias (6:16:54 PM): I don't have the speakers set up on this machine and
there's too much ambient noise here to have mics work
crzy4dzny (6:17:20 PM): oh, ok
emato2 (6:17:36 PM): he is still looking Sumerian to me -- a Sumerian King
auntyalias (6:17:44 PM): LOL

dahs512 (6:17:55 PM): lol
lommomy (6:17:56 PM): I went to Michael's today and found some new goodies.
Different shape cutters in sets of 3 for 1.29 3 kinds of texture sets 3 each
2.99 made of plastic, plastic push molds 3.99, a plastic clay gun 4.99 looks
like it spits out chunkyer ribbions of clay. and a few other odds and ends. Some
were designed for kids and all were found in the kids section and not where the
blocks of clay were. I had fun
emato2 (6:18:02 PM): now he is a computer geek king!
techi_mom56 (6:18:27 PM): yup too long at the key board...

both got one of these, we would be able to hear each other talk then, if hooked
up right. right?
meows3xx (6:20:46 PM): think I missed something, those caterpillars aren't real?
