smorgan364: Hi everyone
leasbeadheaven: hi Staci!
norajean_sf: ok, what I'm going to do next is add muscle mass to this figure and we're going to make a female figure. So we need hips, butts, breasts, etc.

raven_hill_wench: butts?
norajean_sf: LOL, lots of butt, butts
chenoa_2b: Don't forget the pot bellies too!
norajean_sf: LOL
chenoa_2b: lol
smorgan364: Marilyn, I bought mine when I got a $40 off coupon for michaels
mazutwo: are we doing pert boobs or women's type
chenoa_2b: A stripper or a momma?
norajean_sf: well let's start adding mass and see what she wants to be like, ok? If there's no questions at this point I'll get started.
smorgan364: LOL
chenoa_2b: k
mazutwo: we don't have Michaels in Aus and if I buy it has to be interstate so I buy from US as it is cheaper for me with our triple tax
smorgan364: No doubt I would too Marilyn
smorgan364: NJ is taking leaf shape cutters and cutting "skin tone" clay to add mass to the sculpture
raven_hill_wench: why leaf shape?
smorgan364: after she adds the mass, she can then smooth and shape into a lovely piece of art.
smorgan364: Because they are rounded and pointed, you can add bulk where you need them
smorgan364: You can use circle cutters too, but the leaf cutters add the most mass
posey4u: would you use smaller cutters for a woman
smorgan364: it looks like she is using the inch leaf cutter
raven_hill_wench: I only have squares...need to go shopping
smorgan364: so you use the size you need for the size doll you are making
smorgan364: that is about an eight inch doll she is working on
chenoa_2b: don't forget, the camera adds weight too. lol
raven_hill_wench: lol
smorgan364: no doubt
smorgan364: LOL
mazutwo: lol
smorgan364: she is cupping a leaf shape to add clay in the center for breasts.
smorgan364: viola....perfectly matched boobies
smorgan364: he he he
chenoa_2b: everyone has implants now days!
raven_hill_wench: lol
mazutwo: little balls in the cup
smorgan364: LOL you can do butt implants the same way
mazutwo: k
raven_hill_wench: so if you looked at a medical picture of a person with no skin (just muscles showing) you can just add clay where the seperate muscles are
chenoa_2b: makes sense to me.
smorgan364: that looks like the sheats of clay are ran through at a medium setting on her pasta machine, about a 3or 4
bluebell5071 has left the conference.

mazutwo: is that clay behind the kneee
raven_hill_wench: calves
mazutwo: k
smorgan364: She is putting clay ion the calves and thighs
mazutwo: nothing is smoothed yet as it is being placed the clay that is
mazutwo: is it being pushed on Staci?
smorgan364: yeah she is pushing the clay on and moving it into place
smorgan364: where it might need more bulk on the calf or butt.
chenoa_2b: bending the arms and legs, making the joints.
mazutwo: k
norajean_sf: the female figure
norajean_sf: now it's just a matter of smoothing
norajean_sf: but the leaf shapes give indentations where you need them to be
mazutwo: ah those boobs remind me of my heydays long long ago
spksgntly2: lol
raven_hill_wench: lol
rieandra: lol
chenoa_2b: lol

spksgntly2: with her implants
raven_hill_wench: I love george and gracy, way before my time but crazy funny
raven_hill_wench: why does the female have the spine showing but not the male?
norajean_sf: LOL
chenoa_2b: most guys are spinless?
norajean_sf: Oh the male got mashed in doing poses, so he'll get his spine indented during the smoothing phase.
raven_hill_wench: rofl
spksgntly2: shes making them realistic
mona_77082: LOL
norajean_sf: LOL
norajean_sf: his pecs and abs will be more defined in the next phase.
raven_hill_wench: ok
chenoa_2b: is he getting a six pack to go with her implants?
norajean_sf: at this point we just want to make sure we have enough clay where we need it before we start to smooth the added bits.
norajean_sf: Ya most likely
chenoa_2b: I mean on his tummy
spksgntly2: do you make them anatomically correct?
raven_hill_wench: lol
norajean_sf: I've made anatomically correct puppets
chenoa_2b: yes she does! lol Even gotten in trouble for it!
norajean_sf: caused a stir at the Lexx convention
norajean_sf: LOL
norajean_sf: Carolyn remembers
chenoa_2b: yep!
norajean_sf: penis on a jump ring
raven_hill_wench: oh come on people are too prudish
norajean_sf: lost the penis during a three month tour before I got to the convention
chenoa_2b: We going to have a chimbo swap again?
norajean_sf: it was rolling around in my luggage
raven_hill_wench: lol
spksgntly2: I made a doll well and had to make him a penis out of clay..then glue it to the body
norajean_sf: Maybe Carolyn, we got a lot of new folks.
mona_77082: Were you able to re-establish said organ???
norajean_sf: Yes just had to turn the jump ring around so it wouldn't fall off again
spksgntly2: my kids looked in the toaster oven at a little pecker cooking and thought I was nuts
raven_hill_wench: whats a chimbo swap?
mona_77082: LMAO
norajean_sf: but I was writing to the list as I was on Tour and everyone knew I lost the penis
norajean_sf: Chimbo is penis in Japanese, and we had a Chimbo swap a while back
raven_hill_wench: aah cool
norajean_sf: because folks just got to get over being prudish about such stuff. We had people unsub about it, but gosh, we're all grown up here.
norajean_sf: and the Chimbo swap was a laugh riot
raven_hill_wench: wow there are too many prudes around
chenoa_2b: hey I had a aprtment inspection just while the boobs I had scuplted where cooling on the stove.
spksgntly2: I'll have to see if I still have my was little red riding hood and the wolf
norajean_sf: How funny Carolyn
mona_77082: besides, art should transcend all prude and modest considerations and go straight for the subject of the art right!>
norajean_sf: now if we share pictures that are anatomically correct, on the list, give folks fair warning
raven_hill_wench: yep mona
chenoa_2b: the guy wanted me evictedd after that. lol
norajean_sf: don't click if you get upset, sort of warning
norajean_sf: if they click, they can't complain
raven_hill_wench: I agree with that NJ
norajean_sf: if they complain to me I remind them that there are over 200 polymer clay lists with Yahoo Group
norajean_sf: of which we are only one
norajean_sf: they can leave as freely as they showed up
raven_hill_wench: but this one is the best
rieandra: but none teach like this one and they be loosing 4 sure
norajean_sf: We like to hope so, Shawna
norajean_sf: Oh there's folks who don't like the cut of my jib, I'll tell you true
chenoa_2b: it is because Nora Jean is not afriad to push the envelope.
norajean_sf: but since I'm not selling, I don't care
chenoa_2b: Go where others wont.
norajean_sf: I'm teaching for free to folks who don't have money for expensive retreats and are to far from clay guilds
norajean_sf: that's my audience
norajean_sf: if folks got a problem with me, hey, the world is wide
raven_hill_wench: love your attitude
mona_77082: Nora, is this the end of the tutorial?
norajean_sf: I don't have to censor myself or censor others, all we ask is that we treat each other with common courtesy and hopefully genuine fond regard
norajean_sf: ya, I'm winding down
chenoa_2b: dignity and grace.
mona_77082: Ok, I have a question
norajean_sf: been doing this for three days
norajean_sf: I'll take questions, sure.
mona_77082: It is completely non-related to this evenings subject matter.
mona_77082: I want to design a brooch that looks like a wall hung fountain, and I want water to spill over the front ledge into a bowl. Do you have any recommendations on how I might achieve a flowing water effect?
spksgntly2: sounds pretty
mazutwo: back DH lost his fav torch it's daylight here
mona_77082: yep.... a fountain pin.....hahahahaha
norajean_sf: someone used plastic wrap and poured Future floor polish on it and let it dry, did it in stages.
norajean_sf: that made a nice water fall in a mini scene
raven_hill_wench: ooh good idea
mona_77082: Hmmmm might work. I'll give that a try! Thank you soooo much!
spksgntly2: Ive seen that done with a train set when they were making a river and falls
norajean_sf: any other questions on anything?
