Fearless Leader: depends on the shape of the cane
countrylady100ca: I don't mind they say sentence honey to me.
Fearless Leader: If the cane has Mica, gold, pearl, silver, copper
Fearless Leader: don't SAW back and forth on the cane for it'll leave
marks that you can't get rid of

Fearless Leader: for Mica rich canes one slice, straight down, one
direction only
vlady6us: thats neat sonya
Phyl: that is why the leopard cane distorted
Fearless Leader: I have a leopard example of bad saw marks, I'll get
the link to show you what NOT to do

kitycat2222000: NJ is it better (easier) to slice warm or cold?
Fearless Leader: Biz-Archive/Faux/Leopard/LC-010
Phyl: well it is 103 here so I must have warm clay
Fearless Leader: Hmmm, depends again on the clay, the heat of the
room you're in.
Fearless Leader: YIKES
Fearless Leader: that's 40C
Fearless Leader: for our international friends
Fearless Leader: if you're working in a hot room, I'd chill the cane
kitycat2222000: what I mean would it improve the cut if it is
chilled, or warmed
Phyl: kewl thanks
countrylady100ca left the room
countrylady100ca joined the room

the windows open, so I don't have to chill my canes

was reduced, sliced and stacked
Fearless Leader: when put down on this tin I pressed into the dark
kitycat2222000: neat testure - I know I saw them - I have quite a
long list already
Fearless Leader: to get the relief pattern
pennyi: i love that
mingapunga: good idea
Fearless Leader: the pattern came from the lace cane itself and not
from a texture sheet
Fearless Leader: press into the shadows
kitycat2222000: I don't follow that
pennyi: one cane i can make is a lace cane
rdransom1: hello all! what are we doing?
Fearless Leader: This is a lace cane

mingapunga: talking about covering tins
Fearless Leader: Ruth we're farting about

handle - making it a prom (dance) accessory what did they used to
call those?
rdransom1: I have a few altoid tins that need to be covered - I just
covered 3 with the malachite cane

Fearless Leader: Yes, it's a blend and pleat and pleat again
Fearless Leader: Xev of Lexx, Xenia Seeberg, a German Actress
Fearless Leader: But I can't replicate the blend before the fold
Fearless Leader: it's making me crazy
Fearless Leader: I make things and if I don't keep track of how I
make it I find it hard to replicate
Fearless Leader: that's why I am not worried about people copying my
stuff, I can't copy my stuff
Fearless Leader: LOL
kitycat2222000: Somewhere someone mentioned keeping track on recipe

Fearless Leader: Yo Bobbie, hey honey
kitycat2222000: is that the fan texture sheet?
countrylady100ca left the room
countrylady100ca joined the room
DTInermart: I wiI agree NJ Or tins of amazement!
chani69m: I really like the blend on the sheet
Fearless Leader: This one here is a Chevron Flip
DTInermart: that is great!
Fearless Leader: that's all, the segments that were cut on the
diagonal and flipped were blended
kitycat2222000: then cliced and applied?
kitycat2222000: I mean sliced
Fearless Leader: just like these
mingapunga: which colors did you use for it?
kitycat2222000: I get it.......
DTInermart: NJ are these baked or raw?
Fearless Leader: I forget, what were they?
kitycat2222000: I like today's sheet - for making a forest faeiry and
the top leaves really sticking up
Fearless Leader: a purple made from Premo Red-Pearl and Blue-Pearl,
then Premo Green-Pearl, then blended with MORE pearl, then layered
with black
rdransom1: NJ, I made your basket weave earlier today - it was so
easu following your pictures - thanks for putting that out on the list
Fearless Leader: all these are cured and the light green leaves are
Fearless Leader: Oh Cool, love that basket weave, it's so nice to use
up all the bits
Fearless Leader: this one needs sanding and a finish to make it shine
rdransom1: yeah it was fun, too to see how the cut parts lined up on
the other side!
kitycat2222000: could you use a flap wheel to polish?
Fearless Leader: I just use wet/dry sand paper and an inexpensive
floor polish
kitycat2222000: the eyes are so good
DTInermart: NJ I have a question when you appply sheets to tins or
boxes, last week you said to use tls as glue, how much do you use ? I
thied it and the tls ate through the clay...
Fearless Leader: If I'm working on paper mache
DTInermart: Awsom EYES!
Fearless Leader: I use TLS
Fearless Leader: on metal tins I use... Nothing at all
Fearless Leader: the clay sticks to it
Fearless Leader: this needs sanding and a finish too
kitycat2222000: what if the tins are painted like xmas tins?
DTInermart: what about wood?/
esther_reeves: blue one is great
Fearless Leader: I use Faux Wood made of clay so it's a moot point,
if I'm putting clay on a cigar box, I'll use TLS, but go easy, a
little goes a long way
esther_reeves: they all are
Fearless Leader: I'll put it in your box since you've been so patient
with me Esther
Fearless Leader: you can finish it up, ok?
kitycat2222000: and painted xmas tins?
Fearless Leader: sand and ut a finish on it...ok? Esther?
Fearless Leader: it is a Kai face after all
esther_reeves: OH that would be lovely, of course I can finish it
Fearless Leader: good, make up for my taking so long on the busts
esther_reeves: I think I'll keep it for me rather than JOn though
esther_reeves: I didn't mind waiting
Fearless Leader: in the box
kitycat2222000: NJ...............what if you are using painted xmas
beddie0510 left the room
kitycat2222000: same thing, nothing at all?
Fearless Leader: I don't know. I mean if the tins are painted with
the paint that's on Altoid tins
Fearless Leader: then just cover it with clay
Fearless Leader: call it a day
icare4bunnies left the room
kitycat2222000: Thanks NJ a great experience.......thanks
Fearless Leader: paint for tins are different than paint for wood I
rdransom1: I usually sand them a little to rough up the texture
before I put clay on it
Fearless Leader: Leaving out Ms. Kitty
Fearless Leader: but the best thing to do is experiment
countrylady100ca: Maybe you try in Self-Representing Artists, Polymer
Clay, in E bay
Fearless Leader: I found this plastic box, it held some eye glasses
screws or something
countrylady100ca: You can see there is 24 items found for polymer
clay in Self-Representing Artists Today
Fearless Leader: I covered it with clay and put it in the oven
DTInermart: the paint on my cigar boxes is like a varnish, keeps
bleeding through the clay
Fearless Leader: it melted and looked like the day after a fire
Fearless Leader: so I learned from that experiment
Fearless Leader: as you will learn from your experiments
Fearless Leader: if we use found objects, like cigar boxes and the
vlady6us: cool sonya
Fearless Leader: we have no idea how it will turn out
Fearless Leader: until we put some clay on it and cure it
kitycat2222000: Thanks NJ as ever good advice.......try it you might
like it
Fearless Leader: Ok, like the cigar box for the Golden MerMaid
kitycat2222000: bye everyone..........clay ya later
pennyi: by kity
vlady6us: byeeeeeeeee
rdransom1: bye
mingapunga: bye
vlady6us: time for our afternoon thunderstorm..see ya all later
countrylady100ca: bye
pennyi: i have a metal cigar box that my mom gave me
kitycat2222000 left the room
pennyi: its from my grandfather he used it to hold something.
Fearless Leader: Now this cigar box has clay on the walls for wall
Fearless Leader: and all I used was TLS to make it stick on there
Fearless Leader: the clay is presssed at the half way thickness, not
wide, not totally thinned out, the middle settins
Fearless Leader: the things on the wall were put on there with TLS or
a wad of clay
Fearless Leader: and it all stayed up
Fearless Leader: even these extruded bits
countrylady100ca: For your polymer Clay dolls If you want sell them
as OOAK is in Ebay Home > All Categories > Dolls & Bears > Dolls >
Artist Offerings > OOAK >
Fearless Leader: No glue
Fearless Leader: no prep
Fearless Leader: just Barbarian Slap and Dash
Fearless Leader: slap it on and dash it in the oven
DTInermart: How do you apply the tls?
Fearless Leader: with my finger tips
Fearless Leader: I'm a Barbarian of Clay
countrylady100ca: that link is my favorite ones.. I love sculpting
Fearless Leader: let me save log for all the eBay information, brb
