pic on the webcam?
bluebell5071: is yours fuzzy?
bluebell5071: mine is
krafteame: Yes
norajean_sf: If I set it on a better picture then
there'll be lag when I move my hands

norajean_sf: and then move it back to when I start
making something
norajean_sf: did that help any?
krafteame: Is there a way Im supposed to set the speed
or something at my end?
luxo632000: don't see a difference

rossija9: Hi Mary
norajean_sf: unfortunately there's little I can do
from my end to improve the picture
norajean_sf: Hey Mary
krafteame: I mean the pic wasnt moving very much when

wingsbe2: Hi Thanks
norajean_sf: Who's on Dial up?

phyllisinvegas: me
norajean_sf: as opposed to DLS or Cable
rossija9: I am
krafteame: Im on broadband
mommaclara2001: I have DSL
norajean_sf: that might show things down, Lisa if
you're on broadband and still can't get a good picture
I'm stumped
bluebell5071: cable here but its ok for me
wingsbe2: I'm cable
mommaclara2001: It is fine for me.
norajean_sf: ok, before I mix the colors, which is
really boring, are there any questions?
krafteame: Im on cable thats broadband right?
phyllisinvegas: someone had a question befire
wingsbe2: Right
norajean_sf: ask it again, now that I'm back at the
krafteame: pic is not real real clear but image is
moving better. Thank you .
phyllisinvegas: mousefingers did you have a question
mousefingers1: I'm on dial up
norajean_sf: I put it back to quicker to catch
norajean_sf: Pam did you have a question when I was
feeding my son?
norajean_sf: He left out, just came by to eat and
merrie60us: broadband is either cable or dsl I think
mousefingers1: yeah, but it isn't about this project,
it's about another one I'm trying to find something
out about
merrie60us: typical child
mousefingers1: looking for ideas for a "fantasy fish"
I'm doing it around a roundish shaped
mousefingers1: glass votive
merrie60us: I want to find out how to cloisonne from
clay. It looks so interesting I really want to try and
do it.
norajean_sf: when ever I need a shape I make it with
alumimum foil
norajean_sf: and cover with clay
mousefingers1: I wish my Dad could have helped me move
my clay stuff in here but he didn't have time
merrie60us: good idea
norajean_sf: as for Cloisonne, I'm thinking that metal
foil as the base and then mix colors with TLS to go
over it
krafteame: You can shape the foil and then cover it.
very flexible in that sense. And it saves on clay
merrie60us: oh I was thinking to take a sheet of clay
thick and press a rubber stamp in it. and bake then
add colored tls
mousefingers1: I have the shape, I was looking for
different color and fantasy image ideas
merrie60us: that I mix myself
merrie60us: not sure if that will work but will give
it a try
merrie60us: bright colors for fish
merrie60us: think salt water fish at the aquarium
norajean_sf: if you put a foil like silver leaf or
gold leaf under the TLS in the impression of the stamp
you'll get that foil shining through
mousefingers1: I've got a glass votive that I'm making
a lid for. I'll use a foil ball for the shape on that.
I thought a fin for the lid holder would be cute.
sbjwh: Try looking at some pics of koi, they have some
pretty wild fins and heads
merrie60us: when I took a class with Kathleen Dustin
she used foil as the base and covered with clay just
like NJ showed us.
sbjwh: Maybe, a few dragon flourishes
mousefingers1: this is a real bubble shape, sort of
like a goldfish. I was thinking of a sk blend of
greenish blue to blue
merrie60us: sounds nice
mousefingers1: cf dragon flourishes would be good. I
wish I had the book
mousefingers1: big googlie eyes
mousefingers1: big pink lips with skinner blend to
light pink--have the cane for that
merrie60us: what about putting bullseye cane slice
here and there to carry through the bubble theme?
minimadness423: baker's break is over for a bit...have
to handle something in the back as soon
as I can
mousefingers1: good idea
norajean_sf: Ok KathyL
mousefingers1: I actually have some canes that color
mousefingers1: I want him to look almost cartoonish
mousefingers1: oafish
mousefingers1: and silly
mousefingers1: I guess with big pink lips it would be
a girl--or a drag fish
mousefingers1: my Dad is funny, he likes sparkle and
pearl and irridescent stuff. I have some PX powders
and some byzantia and some lumieries
mousefingers1: and a couple of some other mica shift
paint but I don't remember the name of them
sbjwh: Might he/she have one eye winkin
mousefingers1: that might work
sbjwh: That lech look
mousefingers1: I wish I had a camera to show you what
I come up with. Maybe one of my siblings will have a
digital camera they will bring tomorrow and I can get
them to send me a pic
rossija9: What you're describing sounds like that
blue/iridescent fish character in kids books.
rossija9: Shoot -- can't remember author/title info.
mousefingers1: that would be the look I'm after. I
just can't quite "see" it in my mind
phyllisinvegas: yes it does Rena
merrie60us: Rainbow fish is the name of the book
rossija9: Yes, that's it!
mousefingers1: I know what I want, I just can't quite
get it into focus in my mind.
mousefingers1: I know rainbow fish, she isn't cute
merrie60us: Do a google for rainbow fish and see the
mousefingers1: brb gonna snoop the web
norajean_sf: ok, since I mix green from yellow and
blue, and then add more blue, more yellow or gold I
have a lot of green sheets in storage.
luxo632000 has left the conference.

minimadness423: back for a few. was reading about the
rainbow fish...have you considered adding false
eyelashes after the final curing?
norajean_sf: Since I'm using pearl to lighten the
purple and Pearl Red in the dark purple I'll stay with
the mica and use this green that has gold mixed in it.
phyllisinvegas: that looks really nice with the gold
sbjwh: Loverly
minimadness423: I love the shimmer
norajean_sf: so I'll toss this in the food processor
and press it fresh, that way the plasticizers will
bluebell5071: yes thats pretty
phyllisinvegas: wow that is going to be stunning
