rjchase222: Yes NJ but I can't remember right now!!
Fearless Leader: LOL
rjchase222: O yes what will happen to a clay piece
cured that wasn't smashed good before putting clay
over foil??
mommaclara2001: What does the man need. I didn't get
to see the end, last night?
Fearless Leader: Razma, nothing will happen if you
don't sit on it or something. Maybe an air bubble will
rise up and make a clay pimple. Depends on how much
air was caught inside.
Fearless Leader: Momma, there wasn't much done to the
man, we're putting leaf cut out pieces on him to build
up muscle mass still.
rjchase222: Thanks NJ I was afraid it might blow up
while cookin!!!! :)
mommaclara2001: OK
Fearless Leader: the only thing that's "blown up" in
the oven in my time on the list is a GOLF BALL
Fearless Leader: do not put golf balls in the oven
rjchase222: OOOO glad ya told me about the golf balls
cause I've got a lot of them & was thinkin of doin
something with clay!!!!! Now I won't!!!!! :)
Fearless Leader: LOL
Fearless Leader: so last night we ended on adding mass
to his rib cage with a partial leaf shape. The
straight edge was put on his spine and the rest was
wrapped around his rib cage.
Fearless Leader: Snow in South Texas! Gosh
pasadena_cal joined the room
pasadena_cal: Hi all
Fearless Leader: now I'll add mass to his hips. Merry
Christmas Cal!
mommaclara2001: Hey Cal
meplus5kids: Hi Razma, sorry, trying to get kids off
with dad
meplus5kids: Not a lot of snow, in fact it stopped. To
wet to stick to the ground
Fearless Leader: New Orleans broke a 50 year record
for snow.
Fearless Leader: now some mass for his butt
meplus5kids: My mom just called and told me the same
thing, about the record
Fearless Leader: for his thighs I'll 'stretch" the
leaf shapes to elongate the leaf
rjchase222: Mary will try & send ya some warm
sunshine!! :)
Fearless Leader: for the back of the leg, we need calf
muscle. Another elongated leaf shape with the point
aiming at the ankle will work.
dragonladyw2001 joined the room
Fearless Leader: Merry Christmas DragonLady, give us
your first name so folks can come to know you.
meplus5kids: Hi Dragonlady, welcome
Fearless Leader: for the knee, bend the leg, pinch the
side of the knee and press in on the knee cap, that's
the easy way to get it.
dragonladyw2001: Ooops. Sorry, I was replying to an
IM. Beth, Tampa.
meplus5kids: Hi Beth
Fearless Leader: When you bend a leg or an arm, where
the clay mashes up in the crease we need an
indentation, so just smooth where it mashes

coming your way...
frogger70301: hehee... I feel like a big kid!
meplus5kids: Won't mind a bit,

frogger70301: it's actually starting to pile up on my

up on the roofs
frogger70301: I think the sleet we'vr been having all
day is helping out...
DTIntermart: MICH I guess that new heater came in
handy :)
frogger70301: sure did...
meplus5kids: I lived in Germany for 3 years. It snowed
in June but never on Christmas
meplus5kids: Mich, where in Louisiana are you?
frogger70301: Thibodaux,,, a few minutes from Houma
dragonladyw2001: No snow here in Tampa. Just cold,
fairly heavy rain. Brrrrr. Looks like it's 7 p.m.
outside it's so overcast.
Fearless Leader: we'll leave our Man here skinny, he's
going to get Robes since he will be Joseph in the
Nativity Scene. I'll smooth his leaf shapes now.
meplus5kids: Very familiar with Thibodaux, had a
friend in highschool that went to the college up
frogger70301: oh, really!
DTIntermart: Nj when you use the clay shjaper are you
using the tip or the side?
frogger70301: I live about 5 minutes away from
Fearless Leader: the side and this is a very firm tip,
good for Man Handling the clay
meplus5kids: LOL NJ

Rossija (rossija9) joined the room
DTIntermart: LOL
frogger70301: not me
DTIntermart: ever heard that one NJ
dragonladyw2001: Yes.
DTIntermart: Never
Fearless Leader: When Joseph was an olden man and had
lived for many a year and a year. He courted and
wedded the Queen of Heaven and Call'ed her his Dear.

dragonladyw2001: The one I know is the one I learned
growing up in W Va
dragonladyw2001: Used to have some of Niles'
recordings, too. Really unusual voice.
Fearless Leader: John Jacobs Niles should have
chronicled the folk songs you heard then.
Fearless Leader: Really, you're the ONLY person I know
who knows of him.
Fearless Leader: I LOVE folk songs, English ballads,
how they changed coming to the States.
dragonladyw2001: I used to try to track down folk
songs, too. Not on his scale, though.
dragonladyw2001: I think it was through his work that
I was able to find the words to the folk tune "Lovely
Joan" that appears in the middle of Ralph Vaughn
Williams version of Greensleeves.
rjchase222: Got to get outside for a wee bit & chk my
awesome roses!!!!! Will stay connected for the moment!
Fearless Leader: We share a similar interest then
Beth. I love to track down more verses to songs and
more obscure renditions of them. Like Folks songs done
to slide guitar. LOL

Fearless Leader: Top of the Hour Log Save, good time
