chevron flip which makes leaf shapes.

x4wheelinblonde: ok so if your cane starts out flat do you jusy roll
it into the bead shape you want?

Janice: chop is exactly what it sounds like You chop up the canes.
sharonvintn: It's where you use left over bits of canes, chop them up
sharonvintn: and blend together
sharonvintn: It's a neat way to use up stuff
suez1030: very nice NJ, ther close up came in clear, love the
teardrop shape.
x4wheelinblonde: ah ok, still reading all the info on the site...
Kathy (arizona_sweet2004): has any one made a bead by sitting a piece
of glass on top of clay and rolling it around?

x4wheelinblonde: is this where I go to learn how to do them?
nora_gatine: honest
phyllisinvegas: ha ha ha
phyllisinvegas: easy for you to say
nora_gatine: Now we can do a quick chop and layer it
sharonvintn: I do a lot of chop as my canes are not so great so I
recyle them in chop!!
phyllisinvegas: i am still drolling here
nora_gatine: take just a couple of minutes
nora_gatine: let's see what we have on hand
x4wheelinblonde: am I the only one with no pasta machine?
phyllisinvegas: i have the tools but not the nohow
Donna: you'll get one
sharonvintn: I went three years without one
rdransom1: you HAVE to get one, Shawn!!

phyllisinvegas: wht is she cutting on?
x4wheelinblonde: I'll have to get one off the net...
sharonvintn: a tile
phyllisinvegas: thanks
x4wheelinblonde: not sure where to get one here
Kathy (arizona_sweet2004): i made notes of NJ's demos , if any one
would like them, just let me know
sharonvintn: Any hardware or Lowe's or Home depot
rdransom1: Kathy, me --- again
sharonvintn: just a plane ceramic tile
phyllisinvegas: glazed? or unglazed?
x4wheelinblonde: what do you guys use as a work surface?
sharonvintn: Either
Janice: any home improvement store has them that you can buy
individually. I just got one at Home Depot for $1.56 for 12x12 tile
phyllisinvegas: k
Kathy (arizona_sweet2004): ok, i'm behind on 2 plus tonight
rdransom1: a tile from Home depot!
bonsaikathy: ebay is where I got mine
sharonvintn: Unglazed is what I bake on as the clay turn shiny on a
glazed one
elissaheart: I use a sheet of plexiglass.
phyllisinvegas: thanks for that tip
Kathy (arizona_sweet2004): but i'll get them done and send it to you
rdransom1: Kathy - whenever you can is great THANKS
phyllisinvegas: so she is just chopping at random?
bonsaikathy left the room
Janice: yep
phyllisinvegas: kewl
x4wheelinblonde: a tile...I think I have some in my garage
countrylady100ca left the room
Donna: I use all kinds of things -- a sheet of rubber stamp padding,
a marble turntable, lots of tiles (for things I don't want to move --
so I can bake on them)
rdransom1: the 12X12 ones -that are smooth, like marble
ammowife68: well I guess I had better learn how to make canes first
sharonvintn: I use the 4 x4 inch tiles to bake on
rdransom1: me, too
x4wheelinblonde: yeah we just redid som bathrooms...
sharonvintn: I found about 30 at a garage sale
phyllisinvegas: is she mushing it together now?
sharonvintn: Paid a buck for them
Janice: yep
Donna: tossing
rdransom1: I have a bunch left over from bathroom re-do
sharonvintn: Perfect
nancy: i use a 12 inch tile to work on..have several other smaller
ones for various uses
Janice: me too
x4wheelinblonde: and you can bake on them?
rdransom1: yep -no problem
Janice: yep
nancy: yes...
x4wheelinblonde: cool
sharonvintn: If your tiles are glazed you can put a sheet of paper on
top so your clay doessn't get a shiney spot on it when it bakes
jude: I bake on a metal tray with a piece of paper in it.

nora_gatine: and then cut those halves in half again
nora_gatine: making mirror images
nora_gatine: then
nora_gatine: we're going to put them back to back so we have a cube
with mirror images on all four sides
nora_gatine: ready?
phyllisinvegas: yup

babasbunja joined the room

Janice: hi sandie
elissaheart: thanks
x4wheelinblonde: ok what is wet sand?
sharonvintn: I really love your hearts
vlady6us: hi jan
elissaheart: thank you!
vlady6us: sand underwater with wet dry sandpaper
Donna: keeps down the dust
rdransom1: elissa - do you make those hearts that are like natasha
beads? Those are cool!
x4wheelinblonde: oh ok..and what does that do?
Susan: hi guys - boy a real crowd here to night, huh?
sharonvintn: Good to see you here with us Ellissa
jude: Right, keeps down the dust and keeps the sandpaper from getting
all clogged up.
vlady6us: put a drop of dishwashing liquid in the water
elissaheart: Yes, that be me! I wrote the tute for it in Polyzine.
elissaheart: thank you sharon!
x4wheelinblonde: ok.....neat
vlady6us: which hearts..did i miss something
x4wheelinblonde: wow my head hurts from all this info...
sharonvintn: I made three for my family, those are a lot of work!!
rdransom1: I've tried them - they didn't come out nearly as good as
yours , but they are fun to make!
nancy: chuckle..the greatest easiest way to make hearts...
sharonvintn: I'm a figure not a jewlery person!!
rdransom1:  shawn!
rdransom1: NJ usually saves the log from the chats so you can go back
an read them over to see what you missed
elissaheart: you have to remember that I have made a few thousand of
them, so mine are bound to be a little more polished.
rdransom1: they ARE beautiful!
x4wheelinblonde: do you drill hole in the beads before or after the
x4wheelinblonde: I know too many questions
sharonvintn: Still talent must be given credit and you have a talent
for them, Elissa
rdransom1: you can do either - I usually do before
nora_gatine: Ok, now I'll show you a couple of things to do with these
ammowife68: k
elissaheart: I do the holes both ways - some before and some after.
ammowife68: very kewl
phyllisinvegas: was the first thing she used a metal skewer?
rdransom1: looks like it
ammowife68: looked like those things you put in the turky to sew it
rdransom1: what's she doing with the pen?
elissaheart: I think so. it's easier to poke a narrow "pilot" hole
first, and then enlarge it with a bigger skewer.
jude: Not a pen, a clay shaper.
phyllisinvegas: thanks
Janice: it's not a pen, but a clay shaper and she is probably taking
off her fingerprints.
rdransom1: oh - that makes more sense
x4wheelinblonde: hey I need to mother in law is here and Im
in the room she's staying in
phyllisinvegas: bye
ammowife68: k night
sharonvintn: bye and come again
Janice: bye Shawn. Catch you next time.
rdransom1: Hey to the mom in law - bye shawn
metalartiste2001: clay shapers take finger prints off???

rdransom1: I'D love to WATCH that demo!!
elissaheart: someday...
nancy: oh that would be so lovely elissa
sharonvintn: Oh, Ellissa I would love that

minimoon47 left the room

Janice: nite ruth
elissaheart: good night, ruth
nora_gatine: So the Natasha bead can be square, tapered or made into
a tube bead
nora_gatine: the tube bead will have four mirror images on it
suez1030: The beads are beautiful NJ.
phyllisinvegas: those are gorgeous
nora_gatine: and they are easy

Janice: well, if you can't sleep, shopping is the next best thing.
nora_gatine: so these rectangular beads
elissaheart: thanks, artiste!
nora_gatine: are the same as the tube beads below
suez1030: I love the pattern in the beads.
nora_gatine: now I'll take short orders
metalartiste2001: love your beads!
nora_gatine: who needs to see a particular technique
metalartiste2001: i got a question
nora_gatine: East coasters are frist
nora_gatine: ok, questions
metalartiste2001: i'm experimenting with texture sheets
elissaheart: the pattern, the pearlescence, the translucence, are all
metalartiste2001: i want to fill in the dots with another color
nora_gatine: yes
ammowife68: ohhh those hearts are wonderful
ammowife68: awesome
nora_gatine: back fill
metalartiste2001: do i bake first sheet
nora_gatine: that's what I'd do, do the impression, cure
nora_gatine: then come after curing and fill in the indentations
nora_gatine: as you wish
ammowife68: look how glassy they look
metalartiste2001: how do you backfill?
nora_gatine: I have an example
metalartiste2001: i tried rolling the clay on but it always pulled off
metalartiste2001: love the logo!@!!
nora_gatine: see the stamp?
ammowife68: did you make that heart mold?
ammowife68: yup
nora_gatine: it's my NJ brand
metalartiste2001: yes
phyllisinvegas: nice stamp
nancy: super neat NJ...
nora_gatine: I pressed that into the chest of this figure here when
the clay was raw
lvmypolymerclay joined the room
metalartiste2001: ok
lvmypolymerclay: Howdy
nora_gatine: Howdy Lynn, discussing back fill
nora_gatine: after the figure was cured
nora_gatine: there was this indentation of my NJ brand on his chest
nora_gatine: I went and filled in the indentation with pearl
nora_gatine: mashing it into the grooves and then I cured again
nora_gatine: then sanded it flat
nora_gatine: that's back fill
nora_gatine: you go back
nora_gatine: and fill in the grooves
metalartiste2001: oh - the mash technique
ammowife68: when you say cure you mean bake it?
lvmypolymerclay: gotcha
nora_gatine: it's so easy it should be illegal
phyllisinvegas: i have a question on using stamps on clay as texture
nora_gatine: there's more ways to heat set polymer clay than baking
metalartiste2001: yes - bake it
nora_gatine: I don't use bake, for we can boil
nora_gatine: use hot coals on a camp fire
ammowife68: I have tried to bake it and heat it with my gun
ammowife68: most of the time I put it in my melting pot
nora_gatine: leave the clay in the trunk of our car on a hot Houston
afternoon at the mall
ammowife68: boil?
phyllisinvegas: ha ha ha that will work here
nora_gatine: some folks have heat set polymer clay with boiling, yes
nora_gatine: I want to experiment with the solar oven with one of our
desert ClayMates
ammowife68: no kidding
nora_gatine: I got fog here and it doesn't work
nora_gatine: so that's why I don't use the word bake
nora_gatine: for heat setting polymer clay, we cure it, it wasn't
feeling well being raw and we cured it
phyllisinvegas: lol
nora_gatine: any other questions?
nora_gatine: LOL
ammowife68: my husband will come home and think I made dinner and
scoop out a blob of clay I am working on
phyllisinvegas: yes i have one on stamps
nora_gatine: Phyllis shares my sense of humor
nora_gatine: yikes, in his STEW?
nora_gatine: yikes and yow

through the press

nora_gatine: then I start mapping the area around the eyes
nora_gatine: the eyebrow ridge
nora_gatine: beside the nose
nora_gatine: we can now map under the eye and start shaping the cheek
phyllisinvegas: hmm that looks a lot like my husband
nora_gatine: we can start to see how the lips are beginning to get
mass, from beneath the nose, some from the cheek, and now let's get a
lower lip
Janice: lol
nora_gatine: it's looking sort of human, but very sad
nora_gatine: right?
phyllisinvegas: yup that's him
elissaheart: I love his expression already!!!
Janice: yep
nora_gatine: now I'll just roll the cone tipped clay shaper over
these mounds to move more clay to the eyes, nose, lips
