phyllisinvegas: I love that look so much
phyllisinvegas: I think it is one of my all time
kamoe23: Think about to buy a new food processor
nndewbre: what does putting the clay in the processor
do that wouldn't happen if you just warmed it up on a
heating pad?
phyllisinvegas: I need to buy my first one one of
these days
phyllisinvegas: it saves time and is much easier
kamoe23: Yes, indeed I see it
kamoe23: I'll do all with my hands
sbjwh: I don't care what color combo u use, this turns
out great
phyllisinvegas: I have been too
dragonladyw2001: I've been looking around at all the
thrift shops, but apparently other clayers have been
getting there ahead of me. No luck finding a processor
yet. I'm too cheap to shell out $30 to buy a new one.
phyllisinvegas: That is for sure, I am going to hit
the rumage sales when it warms up a bit
nndewbre: $30? I didn't know you could buy one for
dragonladyw2001: I think I've seen them at Target in
the $30-40 price range.
kamoe23: On here it is more expensive
nndewbre: We're talking about the processor, not the
pasta maker, right?
phyllisinvegas: ah that is pretty neat NJ
phyllisinvegas: yes the food processor
dragonladyw2001: That's the coleus leaf from
phyllisinvegas: yes
nndewbre: Is the processor how she got those little
dots in the flower yesterday??
sbjwh: U mite try the black and decker small food
chopper, abt 10$, new.
dragonladyw2001: Is that the one that holds about a
cup of stuff?
phyllisinvegas: no she built the cane that way
sbjwh: coleus turned out great
sbjwh: yes
nndewbre: I missed the first part of that yesterday,
got in on the last of the coleus
phyllisinvegas: she put a coleus leave between two
pieces of pearl clay and ran it through the pasta
phyllisinvegas: now she is folding back and forth
phyllisinvegas: like a fan

norajean_sf: no, check out what was used in this tute
norajean_sf: I use scraps, but limit it to colors you

idea how this one will turn out right now
phyllisinvegas: looks pretty good to me

leasbeadheaven: does there need to be any prep work
done to the tin to keep the clay from coming off
Yahoo! Messenger: heartlandimages has declined to join
and sent:  Thanks, but no thanks.
phyllisinvegas: looks like she just placed it on the
tin and is folded it over the edge
phyllisinvegas: o that is nice
leasbeadheaven: that looks awesome
dragonladyw2001: You could always clean it off with
rubbing alcohol first or give it a light sanding, but
that isn't always needed.
dragonladyw2001: I think I feel a trip to the work
room coming on after this. Assuming I can find my
pasta machine. I just moved in October and am still
living out of boxes.
phyllisinvegas: I moved in July and am still living
out of boxes don't feel bad
phyllisinvegas: off with their heads
leasbeadheaven: oooh. I see people!!!
dragonladyw2001: Live people or dead people.
phyllisinvegas: very dead no brain in that one, must
be a man
dragonladyw2001: A friend of mine moved over a year
ago and she's still unpacking, too.
leasbeadheaven: ROTHFLMBO!!!
phyllisinvegas: they are moulds
bluebell5071: lol
norajean_sf: look at this
rossija9: LOL Phyllis!
dragonladyw2001: They do have brains. They're just
located in the auxilliary command center.
norajean_sf: this face mold looks like the face that
the impression will make
phyllisinvegas: that is not where mine's is located
believe me
norajean_sf: we turn the indented mold shape into a
convex face
norajean_sf: dig
dragonladyw2001: Cool.
nndewbre: dig
phyllisinvegas: yup I dig it
sbjwh: Velly cleaver
norajean_sf: ok, that's the way you can check your
leasbeadheaven: I'm assuming these are your own molds,
that you've made?
nndewbre: I want to see it come out of there without
getting all warped...
phyllisinvegas: she has a neat trick for that
norajean_sf: if you want to see how the mold will
shape the impression you can use a mirror on the mold
leasbeadheaven: are you going to show us how to make
norajean_sf: these faces were made just for making
face molds
leasbeadheaven: I'm a newbie, can u tell? most of u
probably know all this already.

the TV series LEXX

dragonladyw2001: Ahh. I should have know. <g>
