beauty4ashes57 left the room
rickiebeth1 joined the room
babasbunja: Fascinating NJ, you never added clay to make any of the
features, including the ears?
rickiebeth1: Hello Everyone!!!!
chelyha55: Hi Rickie!
sunemoonsong: that is very cool
chelyha55: you can add clay if you need to
Lady Lavendar: like that, not a lot of detail but there
Fearless Leader: Trick to ears is they start where the jaw ends
Fearless Leader: the lobe is level with the end of the jaw
Fearless Leader: the top of the ear little higher than the eye
Fearless Leader: the grid is this
Fearless Leader: map it like that
Fearless Leader: jaw, eye, and there ya go
Fearless Leader: that's rough but you get the idea
Fearless Leader: feel your jaw
Lady Lavendar: yes, thank you
Fearless Leader: at the top of the end of your jaw, go back and find
your ear lobe
Fearless Leader: or your finger goes inside your ear actually
MaMa Duke (pdduke2003) joined the room
Fearless Leader: so the lobe is a little lower than the top of the
back of the jaw
Fearless Leader: that's why it's so noisy to eat potato chips
Fearless Leader: crunch crunch
Fearless Leader: we hear it from the inside
Fearless Leader: LOL
rickiebeth1: I think my computer is acting up - meaning, I must turn
it off before it explodes or something like this - I hate to say bye
so soon.... but ...BYE ..and soon I hope to have another working
sunemoonsong: wow
rickiebeth1: Adois everyone
babasbunja: good night
rickiebeth1: Bye All
rickiebeth1 left the room
babasbunja: Eyes are difficult but so wonderful when they turn out
chelyha55: the only way I can make them look right is if I make them
sunemoonsong: i use prebaked eyes of different sizes
sunemoonsong: i find that they are easier.
babasbunja: I use baked eyes too, or plastic, bought pre made or
beads that I paint
sunemoonsong: aaaah! it looks kind of scary at the moment
sunemoonsong: *lol*
babasbunja: mine look like aliens mostly, til finished
babasbunja: et phone home til i get eyelids just right
sunemoonsong: what is that small thing that looks like an eyedropper
chelyha55: ooh, Roux just showed up in town on "Chocolat"
babasbunja: razor, I think
sunemoonsong: theoh
sunemoonsong: oh
sunemoonsong: does anyone use that waterless hand cleanser as a
kgedrich joined the room
sunemoonsong: cool beads nancy
babasbunja: how do you mean?
chelyha55: I haven't heard of that before
sunemoonsong: well the waterless hand sanatizer, i read a book
called, friends and family in polymer clay
kgedrich: good evening/day everyone
chelyha55: hello
sunemoonsong: and she used waterless hand sanatizer, and a brush to
get all the fingerprints and stuff out of her clay before baking
babasbunja: do you clean the clay off with it before baking?
chelyha55: ooh Nancy lots of swirlies!
sunemoonsong: i think it also put a nice glossy finish on her clay
just wondering if anyone else did it?
nancy: thanks..i saw that message about the tut or desiree's site...i
went a little crazy
kgedrich: pretty nancy you have been busy
sunemoonsong: i am not sure if it cleans it, but i think it makes it
easier to take the fingerprints and stuff out, and makes it shinier
chelyha55: If I sand a bead then I buff it
chelyha55: but if you don't have a buffer you can coat them with
chelyha55: Nancy did you use a bead roller?
nancy: no the lentil bead tutorial on desiree's site
nancy: it is soooo easy...
nancy: i will get you the link
chelyha55: How do you get the swirl?
chelyha55: oh ok
babasbunja: Well my new pre and post menopausal friends, I have to
hit the sack. It was great watching NJ's majic again and fun chatting
with you all. Good night. Bernie P.S. Give NJ a thumbs up from me.

shargoose: Mine isn't so Asian but I am pleased so far, NJ
Fearless Leader: So practice sculpting faces, ball it up and do it
Fearless Leader: that's really the only way we can learn, is by doing
Lady Lavendar: just don't throw it across the room
shargoose: See what you think, I got cam on
Fearless Leader: if you want a face to come out perfect first time,
you'll be setting yourself up for diappointment
