12-31-05 Demo Log Index
norajean_sf: brb, I'm still trying to save log and
then had to deal with some family stuff. brb
tedi382001: happy neew year!!!
wingsbe2: NJ what are you doing....that's really
creationsbypat: she is doing fish scale cane
wingsbe2: Shoot....I missed it
tedi382001: that's a lovely cane
beadyeyedbrat: brb
norajean_sf: back, sorry about that
posey4u: when you girls do a demo you need to get
Dragon Naturally Speaking actually types for you
as you talk into a head phones
norajean_sf: my ex-DIL had some "issues to address" I
wrote to her to tell her to "Le-Lax"
norajean_sf: I got too much background noise to
talk/type. You'd get a whole bunch of crazy stuff
included. LOL
posey4u: never thought of the noise
pcajenny: me too
pcajenny: to much going on in the background
tedi382001: nice cane jenny
pcajenny: ok I have my skinner done
pcajenny: now I am gonna cut it apart
raven_hill_wench: that could be bad when someone
screws up
norajean_sf: was scrolling up and reading about dial
up and DLS and I think additional memory on the
computer does help
norajean_sf: cutting it like the fish scale, but in
six pieces instead of four
norajean_sf: flipping the 1/6th portions of jelly roll
blend alternating
norajean_sf: putting two sets of three alternating
sections back to back
norajean_sf: giving it a squeeze
norajean_sf: rolling it to make it round
norajean_sf: I'm going to do another blend while
PCAJenny is doing that
nndewbre: Oh, I love it just like that
norajean_sf: so those who are new to blends, jelly
rolls and such all can get the basic moves.
tedi382001: thats really neat
pcajenny: that will be my medium green
pcajenny: I will extrude it with my clay gun into the
shape I need
pcajenny: but I need a light green now
pcajenny: that's next
nndewbre: Exactly what is "extrude"? I thought I
understood it to mean just to roll it thinner?
beadyeyedbrat: Man, I'm going dyslexic. Saw green
beadyeyedbrat: Put it thru a clay gun
beadyeyedbrat: Force it out in long snakey things
nndewbre: What is a "clay gun"?
posey4u: can you do it without a clay gun
nndewbre: Won't that distort it?
beadyeyedbrat: Yes, it does distort some
pcajenny: it does get distorted, but that doesn't
nndewbre: Ain't gonna fit....<G>
pcajenny: I am going for the impression of fabric
beadyeyedbrat: Jude, do you go to SDPCG meetings?
pcajenny: and as long as there are light and dark
areas it will be ok
norajean_sf: Here's the screen shots for the Easy
Breezy Blend Technique
lunytuner: Jenny ...just got your web cam up too! Woo
hoo! Now I have Two webcams at the same time ...and
that's with dial-up wonderful is that? Thank

lvmypolymerclay: I'm going cold turkey on the pepsi
nndewbre: I'm sorry, tomorrow is our anniversary and

leftover green bean casserole and apple pie
pcajenny: bk
pcajenny: it's hot in here, I had to open the window
nndewbre: My granddaughter has that pepsi problem
lvmypolymerclay: I'm hoping my hips will thank me in a
few months
norajean_sf: Jenny, change your cam angle so folks can
see your pasta machine
norajean_sf: there's new folks who would like to see,
thanks honey
pcajenny: yw
lvmypolymerclay: so what are we working on?
nndewbre: Do your pasta machines run all the time or
do they detect clay, like a paper shredder?
nndewbre: Mine has a crank
tedi382001: have to run, thankyou nj and jenny, Happy
New Year everyone
beadyeyedbrat: lol
pcajenny: run until i turn it off
lvmypolymerclay: mine only detects me when my hand
goes up to crank
norajean_sf: I'm doing an Easy Breezy blend and Jenny
is doing a skinner blend. I'm using a hand crank and
Jenny has POWER!!!

minimadness423: Amy had to run...wished us HNY
nndewbre: I love that color NJ
norajean_sf: ok, thanks KathyL
norajean_sf: It's Premo Pearl Red and Pearl
minimadness423: looks like you two are in a race to
see who can blend the fastest...grin
norajean_sf: I think I can adjust the lighting better
pcajenny: I love my pasta machine motor
pcajenny: LOL
minimadness423: Jenny...was it an accessory you could
add on in place of where the hand crank goes or is it
brand specific
norajean_sf: No improvement for lighting, hmmm
stargazer_sbpcg has joined the conference.

minimadness423: Well, NJ it didn't get worse
pcajenny: yes it is an accessory
minimadness423: will it work on any brand pm?
pcajenny: I got mine from Polymer clay express, and it
fits right in where the crank goes
pcajenny: I am not sure about that
pcajenny: hi jean
beadyeyedbrat: Rut roh. Jean's back
stargazer_sbpcg: Hi!   :)

beadyeyedbrat: :-S
norajean_sf: Howdy Jean/Stargazer I'm going to make my
blend into a stargazer flower petal just for you
stargazer_sbpcg: AWESOME!!!!
minimadness423: I have a rather nice one picked up
from a yard sale for $ had the original sticker
of $49.95.  it is amazing how many people think making
their own pasta is until they actually try it and see
how much work it is...LOL

what???   :)
creationsbypat: Jenny what brand of clay are you

disect patterns to get what I might want in PC
pcajenny: that is what I do for a living

norajean_sf: Now I'll reduce this and make a Stargazer
lily flower

greatauntjudy: Jenny, I cannot see your cam...keep
getting a server busy message. Drat.
beadyeyedbrat: Lookit all those plugs.
minimadness423: Do you go to the show in Paducah KY?
pcajenny: I like the medium and the light

and don't like it
greatauntjudy: Nice, NJ.
pcajenny: so I am going to do the dark again
pcajenny: yes I do go to Paducah
beadyeyedbrat: I don't remember the first thing I did
from NJ's site.
beadyeyedbrat: That was....5 years ago?

stargazer_sbpcg: there were lots...   tiger...
stargazer_sbpcg: :)
pcajenny: I also go to Houston, California,
Pennsylvania, Chicago and more
minimadness423: this coming April?  they do that show
every year just for my birthday...LOL.  Mom and I have
missed the last 3-4, but I think we could swing it
since it is right after tax season.
beadyeyedbrat: I do remember watching the Lexx

nndewbre: Oh, pretty lily
beadyeyedbrat: You made a propeller!
lunytuner: Isn't that what started NJ on her clay
journey? DOD?
minimadness423: and what kind of boat would that go
on?  :))
norajean_sf: There
beadyeyedbrat: I dunno. Could be
lunytuner: That is gorgeous NJ!
raven_hill_wench: wow I have to try that lily now
beadyeyedbrat: The cane is going to fly away!
greatauntjudy: Terrific, NJ!
norajean_sf: Blend to ribbon, bury snakes, jelly roll,
petal shape, slice and form
norajean_sf: Now let me share a link for those who are
new to getting "Lei'd"
beadyeyedbrat: Oh yeah. I made a lei using her
beadyeyedbrat: Gave it away to a lady who fell in love
with it at the fair.
wingsbe2: Love the lilly
norajean_sf: Check out this page for a four petal
minimadness423: no comment from the mischief section
of the peanut gallery>:)
norajean_sf: change the petal you get a different
flower, still four petals
norajean_sf: if you stack the flowers you get a Lei
norajean_sf: Everybody must get Lei'd

norajean_sf: LOL
beadyeyedbrat: I'll drink to that
norajean_sf: I'll buy that for a dollar
nndewbre: Neat
lunytuner: Lei'd for a dollar...
norajean_sf: Same technique, slice four petals and
connect on the tip of a clay shaper or something
minimadness423: what a cheap lei
norajean_sf: then you can chain them together
norajean_sf: Or an easy lei
minimadness423: multi lei'd!
beadyeyedbrat: All those plugs are for the Tumbling
lunytuner: "Inexpensive" Lei ...
pcajenny: yep
beadyeyedbrat: unreal
norajean_sf: getting another link
norajean_sf: pictures 7, 8, 9, 10 you see the
stargazer lily used on a figure
norajean_sf: it's her clothing, her wings
nndewbre: hey Jenny, will you be shooting that gun
beadyeyedbrat: Captain, there be Dragons here!
pcajenny: yep
pcajenny: as soon as I get one more color mixed
norajean_sf: that's why I'm making more of this cane
because she got hit by a pile of stuff and her wings
fell off, not cured yet when the accident happened
nndewbre: Oh man, I may have to stay awake to bring
the new year in after all.
beadyeyedbrat: That would be cool for Mardi Gras.
beadyeyedbrat: Oops, did I say Mardi Gras to NJ?
lunytuner: I can't remember the name but you have done
those little tiny yellow flowers for a lei too....they
sure would be pretty combined with the colors of the
Stargazer lily to make a lei.
beadyeyedbrat: oooohhhhh
norajean_sf: they got a pile of stuff tumbled on them
norajean_sf: so they are damaged, the figures
norajean_sf: dragon was cured already
lunytuner: that's what happens when curing
procrastination happens..
beadyeyedbrat: Sure does
pcajenny: much better green
norajean_sf: poor stargazer lady here
norajean_sf: she's the most damaged
beadyeyedbrat: They were valiant in battle and he's
taking them to the hospital?
lunytuner: Looks like the battle between good and!
lunytuner: Armageddon, even!
lunytuner: NJ..that's looks worse than the tangle of
Christmas lights I had this year!

didn't make it.
norajean_sf: poor darling. But since I love the LEXX
characters I kept on practicing with Xev's face
norajean_sf: along with Kai
norajean_sf: This is the latest effort for Kai and Xev
norajean_sf: but her face molds are my favorites,
sculpt the face, make your own mold and use that
raven_hill_wench: I will do that once I get a really
good face
norajean_sf: This is my favorite
nndewbre: That's a great face
raven_hill_wench: I love faces that show emotion
norajean_sf: I did this by accident, if I can repeat
it I'll make a tutorial, how to get the colors like
that with the aba-fold
norajean_sf: I need someone filming behind me when I'm
norajean_sf: some things I go... how did I make that?
norajean_sf: Focus Jenny please can't see detail

make molds of them.
vlady6us: wait til she starts extruding them all
pcajenny: now I get to start extruding!
pcajenny: need to get set up first though
raven_hill_wench: I am practicing sculpting faces but
none have been worth molding yet
beadyeyedbrat: Cheaper by the dozen
raven_hill_wench: I usually get frustrated and mash it
all into a ball and start over
lunytuner: EXTRUDING???
vlady6us: all those canes of jennys will be extruded
lunytuner: No way..
vlady6us: yes way
