marlea_anderson: lol
dragonladyw2001: I got a really interesting phone call a few nights
bernie: domestic or wild turkey
Shannon: my ex is another animal....but we won't go into that.... ;-)
dragonladyw2001: Definately wild.
donna_stamps: cane comes up nicely to make pattern in pinch pot
donna_stamps: so pretty
dragonladyw2001: It was from my ex's girl friend, slightly snockered.
marlea_anderson: it does look nice
Shannon: oh dear
marlea_anderson: uh oh. bet that was entertaining dl
dragonladyw2001: Basically calling to make sure that he really is a
jerk and that it has nothing to do with her.
dragonladyw2001: We compared notes. He hasn't learned a single new
trick in the last 4 years.
Shannon: wow.... that is an interesting call
Shannon: sorry to hear that
dragonladyw2001: I do feel sorry for her.
Shannon: they never do
donna_stamps: they don't usually learn new tricks, do they
dragonladyw2001: I thought it was amusing in a twisted sort of way.
It's the sort of thing that usually only happens in bad movies.
rickiebeth1: mine didn't
DTIntermart: Doug Brooklyn NY
marlea_anderson: lmao did you just see the call part doug?
miss_meme_30: lol
miss_meme_30: must be the turkey
miss_meme_30: lol
donna_stamps: quick question - know you can mix trans with color -
how about glow in the dark clay with color
marlea_anderson: I've been wonky all day, i know that much...has to
be the turkey ( I hope)
donna_stamps: would it still glow in the dark
dragonladyw2001: So it kind of tells me I made the right decision.
She was a paralegal in his office, but apparently lost her job over
the whole thing. And she's a single mom with two grade-schoolers.
miss_meme_30: good question donna
rickiebeth1: my experiences is that the glow looses it's
effectiveness wehn mixed
dragonladyw2001: I think the glow in the dark is overpowered.
donna_stamps: I was afraid of that RickieBeth and DL
dragonladyw2001: Might work with a touch of lighter colors, though.
DTIntermart: LOL yes i di Marla
Rossija: darn, wanted to try mixing glow w/ colors
donna_stamps: So did I for night lights
DTIntermart: Funny call...
marlea_anderson: don't worry about it, I do that a lot too
dragonladyw2001: Then she called the next day and left a message
thanking me for talking with her. <rolling eyes>
Fearless Leader: I have a rebuilt 1999 tute on pinch pots, I'll get
the link.
donna_stamps: Love the shape NJ - almost Navajo or Pueblo
Shannon: that poor girl
miss_meme_30: nite all...need sleep!
marlea_anderson: Night Missy
marlea_anderson: sleep tight
rickiebeth1: sweet dreams
miss_meme_30: hope to see you in demo tomorrow!
donna_stamps: Night, Miss Meme
Shannon: we should be allowed to put out warning posters on our
dragonladyw2001: Yes, I told her she should be glad that she found
out now instead of wasting 25 years of life on him.
Shannon: nite Missy
dragonladyw2001: Night Meme.
bernie: nite misy
Shannon: too true
dragonladyw2001: The pinch pot does look very southwestern. I like
Shannon: is there a story behind pinch pots??? I see them all over
the place....
donna_stamps: I think if I were going to do a scene, it would
probably be Navajo or Pueblo
Rossija: night, Missy.
DTIntermart: Gid works as a thin skin over the completed item, bytit
glows white...
donna_stamps: The country where I grew up
DTIntermart: Night missy
dragonladyw2001: Sounds like a good solution the GID problem,
though, Doug.
donna_stamps: So shows color in daytime but glows white at night?
Rossija: hmmm.... that might work.
DTIntermart: yup I use it all the time, after baking a thin GID
sheet is almost transparent..
Fearless Leader: I can't find it because I didn't link it on the
tute list when I rebuilt it LOL
Shannon: could you mix the GID with other colors? instead of a skin?
DTIntermart: Made hallloween stuff like that...
marlea_anderson: nice tip Doug, thanks for that
donna_stamps: Thanx Doug - maybe will try nightlights after all
marlea_anderson: I have some gid but didn't think I had enough to
make anything with
DTIntermart: and f you cut the GID skin with ablade over areas of
the piece such as eyes and moths you caan see the color faintly...
Fearless Leader: Ah well I'll send it through the list when I find
Fearless Leader: I'm getting booted, let me save log
