DTIntermart: Hi karen!!

esther_reeves: flames is a good idea
kmrhodes: Hey Doug
miss_meme_30: needs more light color i think nj
Shannon: trying to figure out how to get the lines slanty NJ...
Fearless Leader: it is an elusive technique to be sure
electron_forge: they would be great little campfires.
rjchase222: I can do stagger pretty good me thinks :)
Shannon: could you.... as you're layering them, at that last step,
put in an extra section of white? about half a peice?
kmrhodes: yeah, and I can do fall down pretty well
rjchase222: stretch it?? turn it on its side??? hmmmmmmmmmm
kittekattz: are you talking a stagger in clay ... or just in
Shannon: would that give your dark a bit of a hill to slant on?
kmrhodes: I was talking about me personally but everyone else is
electron_forge: that just started, really
miss_meme_30: the only thing that i dont like about clay is havin to
condition it...i am lazy
Fearless Leader: use a food processor, cuts down the time to
kmrhodes: get a food chopper at wal mart for under $10
kmrhodes: does a pretty good job
Fearless Leader: process until it balls up and do the taffy pull and
Shannon: yes, and warms it up too
electron_forge: yeah I just had my first experience with
miss_meme_30: i have one but already has clay in it
DTIntermart: <stggers all thee time LOL
countrylady100ca: Mostly I use soft fimo clays but for cane I use
classic or Premo depend on color
poonkie2: I just stole mine from the kitchen today. It's just great!
Will never return it!
Rossija: LOL, Poonkie!
kmrhodes: another kitchen appliance gets addicted to clay
rjchase222: Poonkie I figured that since I hadn't used my food
processor in over 10 yrs it cld go to clay use!!!!!
electron_forge: I just bought a handy chopper thing by toastmaster.
Just doing 2oz. Sculpey blocks
Shannon: good call RJ! LOL
rjchase222: Am slowly cleaning out my kitchen don't do much cookin
here on the ranch ya know! :)
miss_meme_30: someone just gave me a toaster oven....i just love it
miss_meme_30: wont do the oven thing anymore
Shannon: gee, you'd think a ranch would need a lot of cooking!
electron_forge: thats my next thing
rjchase222: Shannon LMAO
electron_forge: bought a dehydrator for drying my Hirst Arts castle
kmrhodes: how does it work
electron_forge: you would think I was gonna cook somthing. Not likely
Shannon: mamaduke was speechless.... or I can't see her words....
electron_forge: me kmrhodes?
MountainMaMaDuke: Hey, Rickie Beth - I have a question for you? The
marxit ruler, is it just in mm or in both inches and mm
kmrhodes: yes, electron
kmrhodes: err, Douglas? right?
DTIntermart: any one know if you can mix Kayto and scupy or primo or
electron_forge: great for drying out blocks cast in dental plaster.
haven't tried clay
electron_forge: yea, Douglas
Shannon: don't think so DT
countrylady100ca: Maybe I am wrong
kmrhodes: hmmm, wonder about epoxy
Shannon: from what I've read, you should keep like clays
Rossija: I've mixed Premo & Sculpey & it worked fine.
rickiebeth1: it is best to saty withthe clay and liquid clay brands
kmrhodes: Yes, Doug you can mix Premo, Fimo, Kato and sculpey. I do
it all the time
Shannon: because of the chemical properties and baking
hlynn1975 joined the room
electron_forge: I cast a couple of shoeboxes of little bricks and
then stick them in the dehydrato for 3-4 hours and they are perfect
kmrhodes: not much difference
rickiebeth1: ok,,,I am out voted..
Shannon: but I could be wrong.... ;-)
rjchase222: I mix to cause I can't remember always what the heck I'm
kmrhodes: I mix 50/50 Premo and Cernit
kmrhodes: mixt 75/25 Premo and sculpey
MountainMaMaDuke: rickie beth: the marxit tool - is it in mm or
rjchase222: kmrhodes what is Cernit?
rickiebeth1: Pauline,,I cannot remember..
miss_meme_30: i want some cernit
kmrhodes: I figure as long as you have at least 50 % of the main clay
kmrhodes: Cernit is a French Polymer clay
rickiebeth1: I will goa nd check right now..
kittekattz: what's the difference with cernit and other PC's?
poonkie2: mama, it's in mm
poonkie2: the marxit tool
DTIntermart: so S# & kauyto wil work in propper proportions...
MountainMaMaDuke: oh darn!
Shannon: NJ.... you're staggering as you're layering here... right?
pasadena_cal: what are Hirst Arts castle blocks?? mixing is OK
except for canes - then compare it to mayo and cream cheese and you
then can't reduce cane.
kmrhodes: cernit is more for doll artists
kmrhodes: more of a translucent skin tone
kmrhodes: and pocelain finish
DTIntermart: AH FINALY
kittekattz: how much difference with Super Sculpey?
rickiebeth1: all in mm ..Pauline
kmrhodes: big, big difference
MountainMaMaDuke: darn it! why did they do that? We are still using
the inches in America right? Just kidding LOL
kittekattz: LOL ... I'm a relative "newbie" to claying, can you
rickiebeth1: it is fine to ask questions...
rickiebeth1: I sure asked a lot of them!!!
kmrhodes: we are are newbies
MountainMaMaDuke: thank you dear for looking!
kmrhodes: questions are good
kittekattz: isn't super sculpey supposed to have a "porcelain" like
finish when baked?
miss_meme_30: where can i get cernit?
rickiebeth1: that is really true Karen..
kmrhodes: I sell Cernit
kittekattz: sorry ... my only clay around here is Sculpey or
Premo ... my choices are limited!
MountainMaMaDuke: how expensive is it Karen?
Shannon: NJ, what if you flipped every other peice around?
electron_forge: how do you sell this stuff if the website isn't up
kmrhodes: Yes, the super sculpey is supposed to but the cernit is
favored by doll artists
kmrhodes: 500 gram brick for $10
DTIntermart: S3 is too soft but the colors are fabulous
rickiebeth1: Premo is the best to use - in my opinion when between
Premo and Sculpey
kittekattz: I'l like to get into sculpting figures ... guess I
should learn the basics first, huh?
MountainMaMaDuke: OK thanks!
miss_meme_30: how much for shippin?
kmrhodes: can do 3 or more bricks for $5
miss_meme_30: i love it kitte
electron_forge: I went with Scupley as a newbie it was cheap and let
me get my feet wet
rickiebeth1: My favorite clay is still Kato clay...
kittekattz: do you use cernit, missy?
kmrhodes: and a lot of art schools start with super sculpey
DTIntermart: Cernit is harder the n fimo right karen?
miss_meme_30: no but want to get some!
kmrhodes: nothing wrong with it
kmrhodes: but the other clays are stronger
kmrhodes: cernit is one of the strongest
kittekattz: LOL ... that's good since I have a couple bricks of it!!
Shannon: Kittie, NJ has a lot about figures on her site, and I'd be
happy to help you too, if I can :-)
miss_meme_30: i menat sculpting
rickiebeth1: Sculpey is more brittle
kittekattz: I'll be hollering, Shannon. Thanks!!
Shannon: yw! you can email me or add me to your messenger list :-)
rickiebeth1: Karen knows a LOT about the clays..and Premo is a great
kittekattz: I had a craft fair I had to get ready for last weekend,
and have a couple of parties to attend, but after the holidays, I
want to get "serious" about claying
DTIntermart: is cernit hard to condition?
kmrhodes: I like to experiment
rickiebeth1: she sells Premo and a few other brands..
MountainMaMaDuke: This Cernit - does it come in different colors or
is this the one that comes in a skin tone color only?
kmrhodes: no, its not Doug. Same as the rest
rickiebeth1: and I sell Kato...
kmrhodes: it will get softer as you work it
hlynn1975: karen, how many premo colors do you have?
electron_forge: kmrhodes < I gave that link to all the guys/gals on
the Hirst arts boards! I love that Alley Goop! We make a lot of
small molds for use in our buildings/diaorams. Hope they all come
kmrhodes: Thank you Douglas
kittekattz: thanks Shannon ... I'll add you ... and you can add me
so you'll know who the heck is trying to get in touch with you!!
rickiebeth1: Alley Goop is fun to use!!!!
kmrhodes: I have all the Premo colors
hlynn1975: I came in late, what is NJ making?
electron_forge: it's on my wishlist. Need to slow down a bit as I've
been off work for awhile
Shannon: hi Lynn.... she's trying to replicate a feather cane/blend
DTIntermart: Alley Goop is GREAT!
hlynn1975: ah, ok, very cool
kmrhodes: The cernit comes in flesh, almond, white, bisquit
electron_forge: hard to do though
kmrhodes: carmal, noughat,
MountainMaMaDuke: ooooooH, those are cool colors!
MountainMaMaDuke: very earthy!
hlynn1975: Karen, do you give gc's?
kmrhodes: oh, gift certificates?
DTIntermart: Looks good enough to eat....
hlynn1975: sorry, gift certificates.
kmrhodes: I do
hlynn1975: I should stop assuming that other people can read my
electron_forge: I think she may have found it again!
kmrhodes: I'm not up with all the computer lingo
MountainMaMaDuke: getting better NJ!
poonkie2: That looks great, NJ!
hlynn1975: I was thinking of having hubby give me one for christmas
