bonsaikathy: there goes the tin foil for the armature
Fearless Leader: Biz-Archive/Sculpt/AluminumFoil/Armature-Grp
rickiebeth1: Jenny, are you making the pretty leaves?? wht is the
mold material that you are using?
Fearless Leader: I got a brain fart
DTIntermart: Nj when I make an armature it gets flaky and pieces get
in the clay how can I prevent that?
Jeannie: had a great time today as always. gotta go take care of
diabetes stuff - food, insulin, finger sticking. will catch up with
all off list promised email before the night is over. love and other
mushy stuff to all.
JennyP: I am gonna make molds of the leaves
Fearless Leader: when I do the really small figures I cover the
aluminum foil sections before wrapping them around each other
Fearless Leader: Ok Jeannie see ya
vlady6us: gotta get going. by all and thanks nj...was a good
DTIntermart: NJ pls share the fart, yours are always great LOL
jeanniehavel left the room
rickiebeth1: Bye Jeannie..until later
Fearless Leader: Flakey comes from broken foil bits, mostly, right?
Fearless Leader: got to use fresher foil, crush it but don't twist
it at this stage
DTIntermart: Yes and a grey film gets on the light clay..
Fearless Leader: when you're sculpting the top, cover the bottom and
protect from finger grime
Fearless Leader: even when you think your hands are clean
Fearless Leader: clay is like a CSI tool, it picks up everything
DTIntermart: that must be the problem I twist it tight, thought it
gave more strength..
DTIntermart: seems to come from the foil
rdransom1: well folks - hubby just asked me to go out to dinner with
him - (one kid is babysitting and the other is zoned in on claying)
food I don't have to cook I have to go with, so I'm going to have to
rickiebeth1: Have a nice dinner
rdransom1: take care all
rickiebeth1: bye Ruth
bonsaikathy: have a nice time
rdransom1 left the room
hlynn1975 joined the room
hlynn1975: What's being made?
bonsaikathy: so NJ is working on an armature
Fearless Leader: I covered the aluminum foil sections with flesh and
then twisted them together
hlynn1975: ah, cool
Fearless Leader: doing it in large size how I do the wee figures,
I'll get a link
bonsaikathy: and Jenny is going to town on button molds
Fearless Leader: Biz-Archive/Sculpt/lil-man/NewBody/001- Thms.htm
JennyP: brb, I need to go to the garden and find a fresh collection
Fearless Leader: sort of like that, not exactly like that, it's the
cover with skin before connecting the legs and torso that I've done
Fearless Leader: Now this figure got to get a head in life
Fearless Leader: LOL
DTIntermart: NJ can plastic covered wire be used as an armeture?
Fearless Leader: try it out and let us know
Fearless Leader: I have no experience with plastic covered wire
bonsaikathy: just cover a small piece and bake it first
bonsaikathy: just as a test
Shannon: DT, I read somewhere that people do use that, and they say
it adheres better with the polymer in the clay :-)
bonsaikathy: hmm, interesting
rickiebeth1: first put it into the oven to see if the plastic will
bonsaikathy: I have some at home, when I get time I'll try it
bonsaikathy: got a cute story, my grandson is 8 and when he was
visiting from Okinawa, I gave him a bunch of scrap clay
DTIntermart: I'm going to try it I have miles of wire
bonsaikathy: he kept making things and then putting everything
through the pasta machine, I had given him several good sized chunks
and scrap canes, when he was done it was all brown
bonsaikathy: I asked him if he wanted to bake any of the things he
made, he said no Gram, I just like making things, lol
bonsaikathy: so I let him take it home with him
Shannon: that sounds like something similar to what happened when my
little girl tried out her crayon maker.... LOL
bonsaikathy: kids are so funny sometimes, I really miss him
bonsaikathy: Oh NJ we should have let you sculpt Takumi
bonsaikathy: you'd have had a ball with that outfit
rickiebeth1: He is so cute in that outfit!!
pennyi (pennyi52) joined the room
Fearless Leader: I just might Bonsai Kathy
dtintermart left the room
bonsaikathy: you should see the other photo's I died laughing when I
bonsaikathy: traditional sumo wrestling garb
dtintermart joined the room
bonsaikathy: almost nothing
bonsaikathy: I haven't had time to upload them yet to webshots
vlady6us left the room
bonsaikathy: I should do that soon
rickiebeth1: oh my gosh
bonsaikathy: toooo funny
tedi382001: what kind of leaf is that Jenny?
stargazer_sbpcg: what are we looking at Jenny?
JennyP: it's hard to see, but this is a sheet mold
JennyP: I used leaves from a wild prairie rose from my yard
Fearless Leader: It could have been thought out better
rickiebeth1: what is a sheet mold?
Fearless Leader: but I think I like putting the skin on before
entwining the armature sections
bonsaikathy: well I think it is a good idea as then the clay helps
it all to adhere together
bonsaikathy: poor Doug, are you bouncing
JennyP: a sheet mold is a flat flexible mold, that you can run
through the pasta machine with another layer of clay
tedi382001 left the room
rickiebeth1: where do you get this?
dtintermart: I hate Yahoo!
JennyP: I make my own!
JennyP: which is what I am doing now
JennyP: I used sculpey bake and bend
rickiebeth1: from teh flex clay?
tedi382001 joined the room
JennyP: roll it to #4
JennyP: put on the leaves then roll it again at #5
JennyP: bake it
JennyP: then I can use it like a texture sheet
rickiebeth1: thank you for the idea
stargazer_sbpcg: do you leave the leaves on when you bake, or remove
JennyP: I remove them
stargazer_sbpcg: looks like a mummy, NJ! :D
JennyP: this is what I used to make my buttons originally
stargazer_sbpcg: can only see the deepest parts of the impressions
on the web cam... (veins, stem)
JennyP: I rolled the sheet mold through the pasta machine with a
layer of clay, then cut the circles from it, picking the best parts!
JennyP: LOL I have a LOT of different molds to choose from, I get
carried away making them every once in a while!
bonsaikathy: that's a neat idea
Shannon: that's a neat tool NJ is using.... I wonder if it's meant
to be used with clay, or if it was a "found" item?
Fearless Leader: These are clay shapers
Fearless Leader: and color shapers
Fearless Leader: soft rubber tips, use the large one, size 6 for
wide areas, like I'm doing forming the general shape of the face
Fearless Leader: size 2 will make more fine detail like lip mounds
Shannon: oh ok.... cool!
Fearless Leader: size zero is for fine detail like the inside of
ears, nostrils, eyelids
stargazer_sbpcg: Jenny, the clay for the buttons is #one thickness?
rickiebeth1: these tools are really helpful, the clayshapers..
stargazer_sbpcg: i love my clay shapers!
rickiebeth1: me, too...
JennyP: but the sheet mold makes it thinner, so I lay it on top of
another layer, before cutting them
Shannon: no doubt! my little "toolbox" consists of part of a
manicure kit and some crochet hooks...LOL
Fearless Leader: just saved log
Fearless Leader: Now I'll work on the face, I got to adjust the cam
Fearless Leader: I turned the cam view upside down so you can see it
from the same angle as I am
Shannon: LOL that works!
dtintermart: Hey Nj the nose looks like jimmy durante LOL
Shannon: I just wanted to say how much I appreciate that you spend
so much time showing people how you do things!
stargazer_sbpcg: yeah, Shannon!! here-here NJ!!! Wahoo!!
bonsaikathy: it's great isn't it, she's a wonderful teacher too
Shannon: I'm new here, but it sure does appear that she is!
bonsaikathy: well welcome Shannon, good to have you
Shannon: awwww... thank you!
rickiebeth1: NJ is a very compassionate woman and a great
bonsaikathy: there have been so many newcomers that I've not had a
chance to individually welcome you to the group
Shannon: thanks Rickie :-D
bonsaikathy: and Rickie Beth is our Kato clay supplier on the group
Shannon: that's ok... I have been getting the email list, and I
don't know how you all keep up! LOL
Shannon: I'm afraid I don't know about Kato clay...??
bonsaikathy: I haven't lately, lol, and I'm a mod, :)
bonsaikathy: I'm doing my best but this week got a little
overwhelming with my brother visiting
rickiebeth1: Kato is another brand of polymer clay and i thinkit is
a wonderful clay
Shannon: look at that.... looking great already.... I have the
hardest time with lips....
Shannon: oh ok... cool! I bet it is!

stargazer_sbpcg: awesome manly face, NJ!
Fearless Leader: Well a man's face appeared
stargazer_sbpcg: most definitely!
Shannon: that's great NJ!
bonsaikathy: seriously, I"m just so glad to finally be able to watch
a demo again after all this time
bonsaikathy: yup a man's
Fearless Leader: now it's a matter of peeling off the protective
covering and doing fine tuning to his body
bonsaikathy: and those look like Captain picards lips
Fearless Leader: Ya, them thin white man lips
Fearless Leader: like a whack in the face with a hatchet
Fearless Leader: whack
Fearless Leader: there ya go
Shannon: LOL his head kinda looks like picard too.... smoooooooth ;-)
Fearless Leader: Ya I'm into Bald guys
Fearless Leader: less work to do
Fearless Leader: LOL
Fearless Leader: door
