dona5611 joined the room
metalartiste2001: janice - boston
MaMa Duke: Pauline MaMa Duke Marlow NH
dona5611: Donna, Sacramento
Fearless Leader: Ok, who's new? Suez1030, what's your name honey?
Katie: not me. I'm older than dirt
Fearless Leader: and you are not on my cam list, so do you need help
Teddy: lol
Fearless Leader: I always say that, older than dirt
Fearless Leader: or easier than dirt, but dirt isn't really easy when
you break it down
Fearless Leader: Now shall we review somethings that will help prep
with Cheryl's Demo tomorrow
Fearless Leader: what were her instructions?
Katie: sorry, I don't think I read it
Fearless Leader: I recommend doing some prep work before the demo
tomorrow. To make the cane you will need: one blended sheet in the
main color you want for your leaf/feather. I used a green-to-white
blend. Then you need a blend that you can reduce into a snake to make
the spots. I used a red-to-yellow blend. I used gold to wrap the
cane. You don't have to use these colors. Just make up a blend for
the main part of the cane and a contrasting color for the spots, and
something complimentary to wrap. You can make up as many blends as
you want and we can make more than one cane.
Fearless Leader: so shall we do blends or what's your pleasure?
Katie: quiet room tonight
frogger70301: Sorry to have to do this so soon, but I'm gonna head
out... really long day today
frogger70301: Catch yall tomorrow?

frogger70301 left the room
Katie: I got one little pleasure
Fearless Leader: What's that honey?
Katie: to see a donut with a hole in it
Fearless Leader: LOL
Katie: be made that is
Fearless Leader: chocolate covered?
Katie: sure
Fearless Leader: why not
Katie: goodie good
Fearless Leader: I'm looking for the bread dough
Katie: ok
rickiebeth1: Sounds Wonderful!!!!!!
Teddy: I ate my last chocolate Dunkin Doughnut
Katie: Yummy!!
Teddy: I still have a box of Teddy Grams
Fearless Leader: Rickie Beth I go to Walnut Creek every day now
Fearless Leader: can you imagine?
Fearless Leader: I'm right by John Muir Medical Center
Fearless Leader: the 107 goes near there
Fearless Leader: let me get the link for bread
Fearless Leader: Biz-Archive/food/Diner-MeatNbread
Old tutes
rickiebeth1: Come to visit me!!!!
Teddy: I got my pencam hooked up and I can view it but no one online
can see it
Fearless Leader:
rickiebeth1: Can we meet one day ????
Fearless Leader: I'll have to when things settle down, Rickie Beth
Fearless Leader: ok let's talk bread for a bit
Teddy: Bread, international language
rickiebeth1: (I fell asleep for a minute - that is why I did not
respond to you NJ )
Fearless Leader: glazed donuts use the same trick mix as the bread I
Fearless Leader: ok, Rickie Beth, no problem
rickiebeth1: LOL
Fearless Leader: The mix I use on top of bread to get the toasty top
is Melted Cheddar Cheese
Fearless Leader:
Biz-Archive/food/Cheeseburger Group
Fearless Leader: the mix is on this page
Fearless Leader: it's translucent with yellow and a touch of brown
Fearless Leader: it's good for a glaze on baked birds too
Fearless Leader: I take this mix and press it to white
Fearless Leader: like this ribbon here
Fearless Leader: that is pressed really thin
Fearless Leader: like 4 notches from the widest, maybe more if you
can get away with it
Fearless Leader: take that and surround white
Fearless Leader: that's our glazed donut snake
Fearless Leader: we're going to curl this to see where we can get a
tight hole and not break the snake
Fearless Leader: cut
Fearless Leader: join
Fearless Leader: and then cover with chocolate
Fearless Leader: the trick to a chocolate covered donut is to press
burnt umber as thin as you can, it's perfect dark chocolate
Fearless Leader: ready?
Katie: yes
Teddy: yes
MaMa Duke: OK
rickiebeth1: yes
Fearless Leader: I'll clean up the seam on this donut snake
Fearless Leader: then I'll curl it and cut
Fearless Leader: the crappy side
Fearless Leader: where the seam isn't perfectly merged, we cover with
Fearless Leader: no one will ever know
Fearless Leader: for as Julia Child said
Teddy: lol
MaMa Duke: looks good enough to eat!
Fearless Leader: "It's only YOU and the food in the kitchen."
Fearless Leader: does anyone know what this tool is for?
Fearless Leader: or from?
Katie: no
Fearless Leader: anyone ever put a cloth cover on a button?
Teddy: uh, no
Katie: no
MaMa Duke: no
rickiebeth1: looks like a medical part
dona5611: years ago
MaMa Duke: yikes!
metalartiste2001: I have an early morning wake up so I'm going to
have to sign off - good night all.
metalartiste2001 left the room
rickiebeth1: Sweet Dreams to You
Katie: wow, didn't even have time to touch my keys to say good nite
MaMa Duke: I was thinking the same thing
Katie: oh NJ, that looked so simple. Thanks so much. If you wanted
sprinkles, what do you use?
MaMa Duke: cute
Katie: very cute
Fearless Leader: hmmm, sprinkles
Fearless Leader: let me see
dona5611: yes, very cute -- but why the white center? In case you
want to take a bite?
MaMa Duke: oh oh now I am hungry!
rickiebeth1: Cut small pieces of pearl and translucent for sparkles???
Fearless Leader: deconstrucing sushi
dona5611: roll tiny (really tiny) bits for Jimmies?
Teddy: that might look like shreded coconut
dona5611: eeeeuu sushi on a donut
Teddy: lol
MaMa Duke: he he, good idea NJ
Katie: lookin' good
lvmypolymerclay joined the room
Fearless Leader: if we did some colors
Fearless Leader: smeared it on a tile
Fearless Leader: cured it
Fearless Leader: then chopped it up
Fearless Leader: we'd get good sprinkles on the donuts
Katie: great
Teddy: or chupped nuts
dona5611: why the white inside NJ?
lvmypolymerclay: howdy
Katie: hi
Teddy: hi
MaMa Duke: NJ - can we look into the signature cane tonite?
rickiebeth1: Hello
Fearless Leader: because the translucent clay clears up and shows the
white a bit
Fearless Leader: let me show you some bread here
Fearless Leader: Sure MaMa we can do that
dona5611: oh -- thanks
MaMa Duke: great
dona5611: good idea, I'd like to see the signature cane too
rickiebeth1: Challah
Fearless Leader: using that translucent mix like melted cheddar cheese
Fearless Leader: will give you toasty top
Fearless Leader: like this
Fearless Leader: just smear the melted cheddar cheese mix on bread
Fearless Leader: white or egg yellow bread dough
Fearless Leader: so you all ready for letter cane?
Teddy: yup
rickiebeth1: READY!!!
Katie: ready
dona5611: yes!

Fearless Leader: I worked at a bakery and lost weight
Katie: lol
Fearless Leader: because after looking at it and smelling it all day
you can't eat it anymore
Katie: I worked at an ice cream place and lost weight
lvmypolymerclay: I decorate cakes for Food Lion but they want to
train me to bake too
Katie: sounds like something I'd love to do
rickiebeth1: It is wonderful to be here tonight - thank you all for
the great company. My husband works at a deli - and he never gets
tired of sandwiches.....
lvmypolymerclay: it's fun....carpal kills the fun sometimes
shargoose joined the room
Teddy: hi

MaMa Duke: hi
Katie: Ha, my grandson would love that
rickiebeth1: Elmo!!! what a fun cake to eat!! Lots of frosting!!!
lvmypolymerclay: it's a beach elmo....get to use the airbrush ; )
rickiebeth1: You must be very talented to do this type of work
lvmypolymerclay: LOL
lvmypolymerclay: Not really
dona5611: I made a Holly Hobbie cake in miniature years ago -- wish I
kept a picture of it
lvmypolymerclay: thanks a 16 hour quick course at work
Katie: I'll bet that was cute Donna
dona5611: It was for a friend who decorated cakes -- a little table
setting with the cake
lvmypolymerclay: hubby and I work together part time doing cakes
Katie: that's really nice. would like to get my husband into some
craft with me
suez1030 left the room
dona5611: I'd be afraid I'd eat too much -- when my Dad was a
teenager they fired him from a soda shop because he kept eating the
Katie: Ha
rickiebeth1: Oh dear!!!
lvmypolymerclay: well he does the speed work, I do the detail. To
much bag squeezing has ended me up seeing a chiro every week cause of
a bad neck, back and carpal, but I need to work some
Katie: ouch, you poor thing
shargoose: What's NJ going to make?
Katie: oh oh, I forgot
dona5611: Signature cane
rickiebeth1: Letter cane
MaMa Duke: signature cane
lvmypolymerclay: yeah...deli work has abused my boday. I can do
anything else, but deli work, but that's the only job I can get right
now close to home and decent pay
shargoose: Oh, good
rickiebeth1: My husband works at Safeway - a grocery store deli
lvmypolymerclay: I'm at Food Lion
rickiebeth1: he works VERY hard - the deli is VERY hard work
lvmypolymerclay: amen
rickiebeth1: Where do you live??
lvmypolymerclay: northern VA
dona5611: where abouts in northern VA?
lvmypolymerclay: Haymarket VA....35 miles west of DC
lvmypolymerclay: just outside of Manassas where I was born
dona5611: I used to live in Annandale
dona5611: worked for the feds in DC
lvmypolymerclay: where you live now?
rickiebeth1: I think it is very beautiful there??
dona5611: Sacramento CA
lvmypolymerclay: Is this Donna?
dona5611: I do miss the green rolling hills
rickiebeth1: I live only a little more than 1 hour from Sacramento
dona5611: Yes this is Donna -- hi!
lvmypolymerclay: I live on one of those hills...actual Bull Run
lvmypolymerclay: Hey it's Lynn...I wrote you off line about going to
dona5611: Yes, thought it might be you
julia_dodge left the room
lvmypolymerclay: it's me...just got back Sunday from FLA.....want to
go back right now
lvmypolymerclay: looked at homes down there
dona5611: anything look promising?
lvmypolymerclay: few things, but it's way different there. No land around the homes and areas sell out before there is even one house built
lvmypolymerclay: not going to be easy to do house hunting 900 miles away
dona5611: When my folks moved down there years ago they found the area they liked, then rented an apartment for 6 months
Katie: what area are you looking for a house in Fla Lynn?
rickiebeth1: Housing here is in great demand and very expensive
dona5611: Then extended for a while longer because they decided to build
lvmypolymerclay: well we were looking in Orlando area cause we don't know the area that well.
Fearless Leader: saving log, brb
dona5611: Housing in Sacramento is a lot higher than it was in
Northern VA
lvmypolymerclay: we are thinking we will have to sell first and then go down to find
Katie: We want to move to Mount Dora if we move to Fla.
Fearless Leader: back
dona5611: where are you rickiebeth?
lvmypolymerclay: I can imagine Donna
rickiebeth1: Walnut Creek
rickiebeth1: Maybe one day you could come here and we could meet with
dona5611: I am going to Pleasanton on Sunday -- see my aunt
dona5611: yes that would be fun
rickiebeth1: I hope you have a good visit
Fearless Leader: I got this theory, y'all ready?
Katie: yup
dona5611: we could do a play day in person
lvmypolymerclay: ready
rickiebeth1: If you ever want to stop by - just let me know
Fearless Leader: the letter K as in Katie
Fearless Leader: has three triangles
Fearless Leader: see
Katie: yes
Fearless Leader: There is one triangle that is bigger than the
others, the triangle in the front
Fearless Leader: so that has to be wider at the bottom, we're going
to make triangles and build the letter going from the open spaces
Fearless Leader: the inside of the P has a half circle
Fearless Leader: so I'll do the letters in blue and the surround in
Fearless Leader: but I'm going to do the half circle and triangles
first and build the letters something like that
Fearless Leader: it's an experiment, so entertain yourself while I
see if I can manifest what's only in my head at this time
Fearless Leader: LOL
lvmypolymerclay: she got that clay ready fast....I would still be
unwrapping the stuff
kgedrich joined the room
dona5611: same goes for you rickiebeth -- do you ever get to

vacation....I wish I could just drive there everyday, but I didn't
see that option
dona5611: how is it set up? sales and classes?
kgedrich: compared to EOPC Shrinemont is cheap
lvmypolymerclay: I think it's just classes
kgedrich: no classes just impromtu demos
kgedrich: just a big clay fest
lvmypolymerclay: no way I could afford EOPC

above with a year?
shargoose: Whatever you want
Katie: cool NJ
kgedrich: put your signature on your work and its permanent
Katie: OK, thanks
Fearless Leader: so the S is giving you the grief Sharon
lvmypolymerclay: I would do my whole names since it's short
rickiebeth1: Reducing it is what I find difficult
Fearless Leader: let's break down the S
shargoose: A few clay artists make an initial cane reduce it and add
to their pieces
shargoose: Thanks, NJ
kgedrich: i want a kitty cat one but believe someone already uses one
