artnut909: that's awesome NJ
Marlea in PA: that really is SO realistic
Maelinde: It really is, Marlea. I like the basket
they're in, too
bernie: you are a master at making those biscuits
Biz-Archive/food/Cheeseburger Group
No Han Solo: <<< makes a lot of things from scratch
Marlea in PA: yes, it's so hard to believe you can do
all that with clay
bernie: mine would look burnt in real life and clay
Maelinde: then they'll be realistic, right, Bernie?
Marlea in PA: lol, maybe do them burnt on purpose in
clay...would be cute
Marlea in PA: there's that flour too
bernie: yep, burn everything, lol
krafteame: the webcame is really clear now
Maelinde: NJ - that braided loaf is so neat!
bernie: my webcam is frozen
Maelinde: how did you do the flour dusting? I'm amazed
at how realistic they look.
Missy~VA: i see that bernie
norajean_sf: all this bread was made with the same
Marlea in PA: there ya go Bernie
Alix: baking footnote for real rolls: brush very
lightly with water as they begin to brown
bernie: finally
norajean_sf: the flour is white pastel pencil shaved
on raw clay, then cured, the clay "opens up" and the
pigment goes inside, like a tattoo
bernie: lol
Maelinde: ahhhhh - how neat
norajean_sf: now this translucent toasty top
norajean_sf: is the easiest and the most under
utilized trick I have
Marlea in PA: it is an awesome trick
No Han Solo: for real boscuits, i wait till the first
sign of browning, then lightly brush a little bacon
grease on thier tops and let finish browning..
norajean_sf: took two years to figure it out and I
share it with you all freely, because the clay
teachers I met in the beginning said it was their
"trade secret"
norajean_sf: and I said
norajean_sf: "Not For LONG"
Maelinde: LOL NJ! I love it
Marlea in PA: see? happened to me too- darn stingy
norajean_sf: grrrr
Missy~VA: lol nj
Maelinde: knowledge should be free - or at least
easily afforded
norajean_sf: so every time anyone says they won't
share a technique
Tammy: hello all I'm back
norajean_sf: post the picture of it to CoCPix
norajean_sf: and we'll reverse engineer it
Maelinde: we'll reverse engineer it?
Maelinde: jinx!

Missy~VA: lol
Marlea in PA: lmbo
norajean_sf: connected by the third eye Debbie
Maelinde: LOL
Maelinde: we often are, NJ
Marlea in PA: must be strong stuff Missy
norajean_sf: ok, so remember, the trick of tonight is
Water = Translucent when doing mini food
Missy~VA: must be!
Maelinde: good trick to remember
No Han Solo: nj, is that a ink eraser pencil?
norajean_sf: Translucent Liquid Sculpey is water to
the mini food maker
norajean_sf: pastel pencil, George
Marlea in PA: no more nyquil and internet...
Maelinde: I'm on strong stuff, too - Robaxin and
LorTab. bad spasms today
Missy~VA: lol
norajean_sf: if you need to simulate something watery
in mini food use TLS
Missy~VA: i took a darvocet
Maelinde: I had Randy take off the TENS unit before he
went to bed so I didn't have to sleep with it on
jill_z_q: what is the TENS unit?
Tammy: Oh is the demo over?
norajean_sf: Darvocet gave me global temporary amnesia
after sugery
Maelinde: TLS for sauce/liquid regular translucent for
watery food
rickiebeth2005: must be very painful to be on such
strong meds..
Marlea in PA: have you used a heat gun with the tls
norajean_sf: made the family go YIKES for about 24
No Han Solo: ok, cause there's a trick i know with ink
eraser pencils.. use them to clean contacts on
electronics, they take off the grunge but won't even
scratch the metal
norajean_sf: nope, no heat gun here
norajean_sf: just the kitchen oven
Maelinde: I was on Soma last January after a car
accident and it rhymes with coma for a reason - LOL
Marlea in PA: that's even better NJ
Missy~VA: lol
Maelinde: I have a heat gun over here - haven't used
it on clay yet
rickiebeth2005: oh my...I hope that you are able to
get better after that accident..
Marlea in PA: lol, that's awful Debbie
Maelinde: great idea, George! I'll ask Randy if he
knows that tip
norajean_sf: I limit my tools and supplies to make my
tutorials accessable to artists on a budget
Alix: NJ ... can we look at wrappings tomorrow? Like
corn husk for tamales, grape leaves, cabbage?
Maelinde: I did after a lengthy bout of trigger point
injections and serious medication - last year's
January Catastrophe
jill_z_q: What is a TENS unit?
norajean_sf: yes, Alix that's a good suggestion, let
