Katie: It's usually my craft rooms
Katie: He sure is green.
Katie: How do you know you have to give it an ice bath? Do you use
directions some how?
kgedrich: I just find when I'm doing the opals that it helps with the
transparency and also the thinest you can get on the trans
kgedrich: I use premo trans with bleach
Katie: OK, thanks
kgedrich: the flakes i used can be purchased at Michaels in the

Katie: We have 1 goldfish and that's only cause my grandson gave it to

kgedrich: yep told my son if he brings anymore animals home its him

Katie: LOL, that's what my girlfriend said to her daughter about and
more cats.
kgedrich: love them all but a pain when you want to go anywhere
Katie: Yes, that's the only reason my husband says no dog
kgedrich: going to Virginia in a few weeks to see my brother and my
hubby has to have a list written out so he can take care of all the
Katie: NJ, saw an electric past maker at a garage sale today but
passed it up cause I'd really like a crank one.

Katie: That's cute!!
Katie: I can't remember. It was brand new.
kgedrich: I like the control I have on my Atlas but i want the bigger

Katie: I'll probably kick myself for not buying it.
kgedrich: keep eyeing the one I brought home from my father's estate
but my son says no way MOM im using it for pasta, can you tell he
cooks LOL
Betty (bettyintennessee) joined the room
kgedrich: wb Betty
Betty: Thanks, Kat
Katie: LOL, that's cute.
Katie: Hi Betty
Betty: Hi, Katie
kgedrich: making a outfit for your green lady
Betty: Hi, NJ, Libbie
auntyalias: ok
kgedrich: afk
auntyalias: now I took the leaf cane
auntyalias: pressed it on a sheet of green
auntyalias: first doing random background
auntyalias: then adding the four leaves that will go around the neck
in the center
auntyalias: I keep on trimming the sheet down to be able to fit it in
the press
auntyalias: I can always use that trim for beads or belts or head
auntyalias: I found to dress a raw clay figure like this
auntyalias: with a raw clay sheet that's also warm and tacky
auntyalias: it's good to use powder on the side of the sheet that
touches the body
auntyalias: so it doesn't stick when you're fitting it
auntyalias: I'll cut out a hole in the center for the neck
auntyalias: then I'll slice downward a bit so the head can fit through
kgedrich: Nora is your figure already cured?
auntyalias: nope
kgedrich: okay thanks
auntyalias: so we can pose it after dressing
auntyalias: so I dusted the side of the pressed sheet where it touches
the body
auntyalias: cut out a neck hole and a slit to allow the head to come
auntyalias: form the sheet around the body and we can just trim away
what we don't want
auntyalias: now to make the seams attach, I'll touch the edges where
the powder is with TLS
auntyalias: now if I want the front to overlap the back
auntyalias: I should touch the seam edges of the top part only
Betty: She looks good
auntyalias: anyone ever use Fabric Tac?
auntyalias: that glue for fabric?
kgedrich: not me
auntyalias: when making mini clothing with fabric we use Fabric Tac
auntyalias: a fabric glue instead of sewing
Betty: I've used a different brand
auntyalias: TLS is what we use when making clothing out of clay sheets
auntyalias: it's used in the same way
kgedrich: no sew is good
Betty: Okay to wash it by Aleenes, too
Katie: I've used no sew
auntyalias: you have to think ...what side do I put this TLS? On the
underside, but think are you going to overlap the clay sheet?
auntyalias: Well TLS is the fabric tac for clay sheets
auntyalias: use it in the same way, but after you put the two sheets
together, give it a wee mash
auntyalias: to make them adhere better
Betty: That's a great tip/lesson, NJ..thanks
Katie: She works magic with those hands.
Betty: It's amazing to watch
Katie: sure is
Katie: great job
auntyalias: now see how she becomes a person
kgedrich: ok nj lion head is done and stained on cam lovely lady
auntyalias: with the head wrap
Katie: yes
bettyintennessee left the room
auntyalias: Hey looks great with the stain, Kat
kgedrich: thanks
Katie: Very nice

Betty: Thanks Nora
Betty: Hi, Katie
Katie: LOL
kgedrich: you have a tut on that dont you nora think ive seen it they

Betty: lol..I'll remember that
auntyalias: now that I have her head wrap on, dressed and with flowers

auntyalias: the one she's wearing is picture 18
auntyalias: From the Water Lily demo
auntyalias: it's a loose hand blend and it came out so nice, I hope I
can make that cane again
auntyalias: it was an accident
kgedrich: got to love those accidents
auntyalias: LOL
auntyalias: I love them when I can repeat them
auntyalias: then they can be proper tutorials
kgedrich: yep

Life is like a lump of clay, both are what you make of it.
