ondoa12002 joined the room
auntyalias (2:37:09 PM): ok, shall now I have the sheets prepared
auntyalias (2:37:22 PM): what I was thinking was conditioning a bunch
of translucent
auntyalias (2:37:27 PM): and making snakes of translucent
auntyalias (2:37:36 PM): and surrounding them with purple and or red
auntyalias (2:37:43 PM): and making flower petals out of that
auntyalias (2:37:49 PM): then surrounding all the flowers with the
auntyalias (2:37:56 PM): and then building the A shaped cane
auntyalias (2:38:01 PM): for the sections of the tiffany lamp
auntyalias (2:38:07 PM): how does that sound to you all?
auntyalias (2:38:42 PM): did everyone go make a sandwich while I was
dealing with getting my oven fixed?
auntyalias (2:41:29 PM): see how it turns into a ball in the food
wi1dangl (2:41:38 PM): ok...back
auntyalias (2:41:40 PM): that's when it is warm enough to pull it like
taffy to condition it
shargoose joined the room
techi_mom56 (2:42:27 PM): good info...gotta start using a food
shargoose (2:43:20 PM): How do I get the web cam image?
shargoose (2:43:59 PM): Never miand, figured it out
auntyalias (2:44:42 PM): Sharon, just making a basic bullseye here
auntyalias (2:44:49 PM): let me get you a link before I go on
shargoose (2:45:07 PM): Sorry, had to pick up a friend so missed the
start of demo.
auntyalias (2:45:07 PM):
auntyalias (2:45:16 PM): this is what I'm doing, tiffany lamp shades
shargoose (2:45:22 PM): Thanks for making it earlier for us on the
Easwt coast!!
shargoose (2:45:37 PM): Oh, COOL
auntyalias (2:45:39 PM): the white snake is translucent clay just
surrounding it with purple right now
auntyalias (2:45:47 PM): but there's something I want to point out
about the basic bulls eye
auntyalias (2:46:49 PM):
auntyalias (2:46:55 PM): check this picture if you will
auntyalias (2:47:03 PM): when you do a bulls eye, surrounding a snake
with a sheet
auntyalias (2:47:15 PM): roll back
auntyalias (2:47:25 PM): cut INSIDE that indentation to get a seam
that does not over lap
shargoose (2:47:44 PM): Yup, got it
shargoose (2:48:19 PM): That's been my problem
shargoose (2:48:36 PM): Usually cut it just a tad too big and get a
lup for a seam
shargoose (2:48:59 PM): I ment lump
auntyalias (2:51:21 PM): now to make this narrower in width and longer
in length just pull it from both ends
auntyalias (2:52:36 PM): I'll roll it since it does not have a design
inside the bulls eye
auntyalias (2:52:46 PM): if there were a design inside I would not
roll it, just pull it
auntyalias (2:52:57 PM): for the design tends to get mashed up and
goofy if you roll it
auntyalias (2:55:08 PM): the translucent will let the light through
auntyalias (2:55:14 PM): the purple will tint the color of the light
shargoose (2:56:15 PM): Pretty
auntyalias (2:56:21 PM): did you see me shine the light through that
votive candle holder?
shargoose (2:56:29 PM): Yes
auntyalias (2:56:30 PM): all the petals were translucent in the middle
of the petal
auntyalias (2:56:37 PM): color was on the ouside of the translucent
auntyalias (2:58:28 PM): I'm taking pictures as we go along for I
