Demo Stuff

I got booted a couple of times and this was saved by Shannon, so there may be some overlap from the last demo log.

Fearless Leader: let's press some of this on a sheet and see what we get, ok?
meplus5kids joined the room
Rossija: cool!
meplus5kids: I'm trying to stay in
Shannon: tip.... cold canes *snap* LOL but hey... it's a circle inside!!! yay!!!
Rossija: Fabric for one of the people?
MountainMaMaDuke: keep the cane in the freezer for about ten minutes?
donna_stamps: fish scale cover for tin?
Shannon: yep about that
miss_meme_30: man i missed the cane
donna_stamps: That's what I do with my attempts at canes, Shannon
Shannon: it seemed to help!
MountainMaMaDuke: cane making is so much fun to me
donna_stamps: it does, esp with S3
Shannon: Missy I got shots of it
Shannon: LOL yeah, Donna!
miss_meme_30: ty!!!!
Shannon: there must be a big difference in clays though, if NJ can go straight from making, to reducing, to cutting... and it holds it's shape... even under the hot lights
MountainMaMaDuke: you bet!
Shannon: I think I'm going to be contacting Karen!
donna_stamps: That's why I bought Premo = S3 so soft have to pop in freezer before cut because I'm to impatient to wait til next day
Shannon: LOL no doubt!
donna_stamps: covered sheet with fishscale slices then thru pasta machine - so neat
Rossija: awesome!
Shannon: and no bubbles to be seen!
Shannon: thanks NJ!
donna_stamps: wonder if it matters which way thru machine
Rossija: It might... More distortion if "against the grain" I would think
donna_stamps: be interesting to try both directions with 2 sections of sheet to see which way you like better
MountainMaMaDuke: I like to send mine through the pasta machine all four directions to keep the pattern completely still
Shannon: good idea
donna_stamps: great idea, MaMaDuke
MountainMaMaDuke: it works for me
donna_stamps: the distortions might be interesting tho
MountainMaMaDuke: sometimes it is!
MountainMaMaDuke: depends on what is your fancy at the moment
donna_stamps: so now the man is going to become a merman
MountainMaMaDuke: he was getting chilly waiting for us to get back to him!
donna_stamps: don't blame him - I'm freezing
Rossija: I think this may be the gargoyle from Halloween time....
Fearless Leader: MerDemon
Shannon: LOL
MountainMaMaDuke: so am I, going to be leaving pretty soon to start up my woodstove - get some REAL heat in my little cabin
miss_meme_30: lol
Shannon: LOL
MountainMaMaDuke: very COOL NJ!
Shannon: that was great!
donna_stamps: has he been cured yet
MountainMaMaDuke: my guess, probably not if she is still working with him!
donna_stamps: sometimes she cures several times as makes additions
Rossija: I think she JUSt now bent his legs to sitting...
MountainMaMaDuke: true!
donna_stamps: You're right - can't have been cured!!
donna_stamps: check out the shoulder pads
Fearless Leader: all dressed up and no where to go
donna_stamps: He's awesome - so fierce and wicked looking
MountainMaMaDuke: while I am watching NJ work up her cane, I am putting together that idea of the black and translucent Premo clay to make a lace cane out of it next
Shannon: oh wow!
MountainMaMaDuke: I just got so inspired while watching her!
donna_stamps: will you post pix when done? Sounds totally cool!

donna_stamps: How would you prop him for baking, NJ? Lots of batting?
alix: Gorgeous NJ
Fearless Leader: Oh it depends, I don't know what he'll be sitting on, or against yet
Fearless Leader: but I use toilet paper rollers for props, cardboard, they won't catch on fire, too low a temperature
Fearless Leader: His body needs more definition
MountainMaMaDuke: BUFF !
jude: More waist you think?
Fearless Leader: and he was a rough draft, so there's some fine tuning I'll still need to do
Fearless Leader: more pecs
donna_stamps: We used tp rolls for propping some of our things; worked well
Fearless Leader: maybe a nipple ring
Fearless Leader: LOL
MountainMaMaDuke: ouch!
donna_stamps: Painful!
debsdv: roflmao
Fearless Leader: Oh Demons like pain
Rossija: more pecs, definitely. Nipple ring.... hmmmm
donna_stamps: Nose ring?
Rossija: Maybe a chain from the nipple ring to somewhere else?
Fearless Leader: we got to work on his nose and his mouth a bit
DTIntermart: Tp rolls are also good to keep li\ght color beads from darkening when curing seal the ends with foil
MountainMaMaDuke: at my age, the ring would look more like a pancake!
Fearless Leader: he might get teeth
Fearless Leader: I'd get the nipple ring caught in my leg warmers I'm afraid
Rossija: FANGS!
debsdv: Wow. That's a good idea about the beads
DTIntermart: Kool idea
MountainMaMaDuke: TOO FUNNY NJ!
Fearless Leader: Remember Moms Mabley?
