little38chevy: ty
minimadness423: he sure has a chronic case of

norajean_sf: In time you'll have scrap clay to use for

lot, sacrifice some clay for the form.
norajean_sf: This form here, I've had for years and
norajean_sf: it's been in and out of the oven a bunch
of times
little38chevy: ok cool
norajean_sf: I put foil over it and then lay the clay
on it and cure it all together

merrie60us left the room

norajean_sf: Gosh Merrie you've been having a time of
it today
minimadness423: I love using Durham's water putty. I
used it many times over carved floral oasis and then
"painted" Durhams over it. It looks like stone but is
feather light...great for a resin fountain to float
clay water lilies
merrie60us: must be the cold weather
little38chevy: neat idea
norajean_sf: that's better, the lighting was weird

merrie60us: Hi Karen

Durham's Water Putty I thought I would answer

Alix: back ... went after Minnie and the pizza ads
norajean_sf: Sure KathyL
merrie60us: good
msraven54: I have plenty time to make, and am gonna
sit down in week or so and determine exactly what she
wants and price--made my day
bonsaikathy: it's a great product and I also like Daps
brand as it's pure white
merrie60us: so what is it???
clayalley: I need to get some of that
clayalley: its a hard putty
norajean_sf: Good Question Merrie
norajean_sf: LOL
Staci: UGH, just found an old block of
msraven54: Sorry it's OT, but I am thrilled!
rjchase222: did I answer my question right NJ?
Missy~VA: go raz go raz!
clayalley: exactamundo
minimadness423: Durhams is found at hardware stores,
Lowe's and Home Depot. It is a powder in 1 and 5 pound
cans. It mixes with water and dries to a "rock" hard
norajean_sf: you sure did Razma
george_schenck left the room
rjchase222: OOOOOO good now I can get a star on my
msraven54: WTG Raz
~Shannon~Clayladyinred: LOL
norajean_sf: Another Petal on your Clay Daisy
merrie60us: so you can put it on foil and make a mold?
bonsaikathy: and it's cheap too
merrie60us: I love that round flower in the back
msraven54: Bonsai Kathy--How r u feeling?
merrie60us: Can you bake the clay on the Durhams?
msraven54: Pretty flowers NJ
norajean_sf: Just wanted to remind folks that these
flowers were made with the same cane
bonsaikathy: doing ok, thanks hon
Staci: Bless my daughter, she found an old toothbrush
and is cleaning my food proccessor out for me
merrie60us: OOH
msraven54: np, just checking
merrie60us: is that what you did last night?
~Shannon~Clayladyinred: awwwww Staci
Lisa in Maine: pretty cane, NJ
~Shannon~Clayladyinred: yes it is Merrie
minimadness423: I like using it for stone
projects...stone columns, covering plastic toys to
make yard sculpures. Since Durham's dries a nice stone
gray, it is then easy to dry brush other shades of
gray for highlights. I have even added acrylic paint
to it to make a different base color.
Lisa in Maine: very pretty flowers!
norajean_sf: 04-03-04 Demo: One cane makes many
flowers. Two examples, dozen pictures and 2 demo logs.
rjchase222: Staci just take alcohol on paper towel &
wipe out processor
Staci: Oh, that is a good idea RJ
Staci: But I am grounded from alcohol
rjchase222: thats what I use & its quick & easy
norajean_sf: Ok, now let's take this cane here and
double it and see what we get
rjchase222: LMAO Staci o no then get baby wipes with
alcohol in them
Staci: Last time I used it I ended up taking a trip to
the ER cause some splashed in my eye and left
little38chevy: i am afraid it will burn out my small
minimadness423: it is fun to work with...just don't
clean out the excess in the sink...let it dry and then
flake it out of the bowl. If you save yogurt
containers or other shallow butter bowls, you can flex
the bowl and it pops...or just toss the continer.
merrie60us: Thanks
minimadness423: smaller batches work better as it will
start to cure. I buy the cheap plastic bristle kid's
paint brushes in those gazillion for a $1 packages.
The putty won't cling to the bristles and they are
cheap enough to toss.
rjchase222: NJ seems to be doing a repeat from last
nite LOL
Shirley: that's ok, I wasn't here last night
merrie60us: I can never get enough of flowrs and
flower canes
merrie60us: missed last night also
rjchase222: me either maybe one day I'll be able to
make them but first have to learn to do skinner blend
merrie60us:  you will
rjchase222: NJ makes it all look so simple & easy
Staci: She is making a new flower
Staci: She is taking the cane she made last night and
making new I think
merrie60us: She has been doing it for years
merrie60us: Practice practice practice
rjchase222: I keep practicing practicing practicing
norajean_sf: Top of the hour save
merrie60us: me too
norajean_sf: brb
~Shannon~Clayladyinred: for those reading the log, NJ
cut a cane in half, and pressed them together, with a
strip of blend in between them
