** Special Event Commencing **
.Dinko Tilov> It was a bit cold when I went there, so I guess there weren't as many people as usual, but still it was good.
.Dinko Tilov> Yeah, kind of like the saying. :)
NITEFALCON> i think i was there in july so packed, plus extra tourists (including me)
.Leigh> hi kids, leigh will be here in a sec... (stephen speaking)
.Dinko Tilov> I'll go again as soon as I can. Do you know what they had there?
.Dianne> Incognito, huh, Stephen?? :)
.Dinko Tilov> Hi Stephen!
.Dinko Tilov> Haven't seen you in ages Stephen! :)
.Leigh> hi dinko (he's sitting right next to me)
.Dianne> As Ria would say, Dinko is wearing his funny pants!
.Dinko Tilov> NF, they had a stand of things made out of spoons at the saturday market. All kinds of things made just using regular kitchen spoons !
NITEFALCON> i have seen stuff like that before. when I was there I got a "computer virus" this women made them out of clay (earthen kind)
.Dinko Tilov> I didn't see much polymer clay stuff there...
.Dianne> Hi Sunni!
.Dinko Tilov> Hi Sunni!
NITEFALCON> i would really love to get to go there again.
.sunni> hi gang!
NITEFALCON> hi sunni!
.Leigh> hi sunni
CJFOSTER1> Hi Sunni, sorry I missed night before last.
.sunni> no problem, connie.
.sunni> dinko - are the ross's treating you well?
.sunni> *wink* hi celie!
.Leigh> she'll be here in a sec sunnie (stephen)
.sunni> ah. (((stephen))) thx.
NITEFALCON> sunni...i had to think a minute who you meant :) its late here
.sunni> stephen - how ya doing on the faux opals?
.Dinko Tilov> What time is it?
NITEFALCON> 3 am
NITEFALCON> i am in germany
.Leigh> should have something up this wekend
.sunni> *giggle * you must be getting close to end of shift, nite.
.sunni> thx stephen!!
NITEFALCON> no, no shift. don't work nights this week. don't work again till monday. just being insane at the moment
.sunni> dinko - when are you returning to our fair state of oregon?
.Dinko Tilov> Time zones... I hate them :)
.sunni> time zones make me think. *groan*
NITEFALCON> i only hate them when I have to travel over them in the easterly direction. then they are killer. the other direction is tolerable
.Dinko Tilov> SUnni, I'm going back to the Beautiful Northwest on 12! :)
.sunni> yup. east to west really plays havoc with sleep patterns. too bad we can't fly over the pacific and the continent to get to europe!!
CJFOSTER1> I fly to Russia a couple times a year. I don't have trouble going East, but can't sleep coming back and it is murder!!!!
.sunni> ah!!! it'll be good to have you back over here. how are you doing with perceiving the size of our country? ;)
.sunni> dunno why it's so hard to go west. you'd think time was just time?
.Dinko Tilov> Sunni, I had to have a total change of scale, because distances here are huges, and so seem most things! :)
NITEFALCON> "everything is bigger in America :)"
NITEFALCON> and even bigger in Texas
.Dinko Tilov> I meen in Europe all the countries are so closely packed together you don't realize it when you're there. And here it's always the same country. :)
NITEFALCON> no offense to texans :)
.sunni> hahahaha!! yes indeed!! i was once in a town in England and was using my American perception of distance to get to the right street to turn on. i passed it by a good 10 blocks!!!
CJFOSTER1> But bigger yet in Russia. So you know how many time zones they have in that country???
.Dinko Tilov> :)
.sunni> well - we did cut it up into states for you.....
NITEFALCON> I know what you mean dinko. I have the opposite effect here. I am in germany but I can be in Prag, Czech in 2 hours by train.
.sunni> no connie - how many?
.Dinko Tilov> I was telling Leigh about how in Bulgaria we consider 40 miles "far away", while here it's almost nothing...
CJFOSTER1> Right, 12.
NITEFALCON> what is the population of bulgaria?
.Leigh> Hi Gang, I think I"m here!
.sunni> 40 miles. i go that far to get to the store and back!!
.Dianne> Hi Leigh!
.Dinko Tilov> Hi Leigh!
NITEFALCON> man sunni, you are out in the boonies :)
.Dinko Tilov> It's about 8 million.
.sunni> ysm!! i am and loving it!!!
CJFOSTER1> My husband travels that far to work every day, and I use to.
.sunni> 8 million? we have cities with more people than that!!!
NITEFALCON> dresden (where I am currently) is about 500,000
.Leigh> Hi Dinko, long time no see!
.Dinko Tilov> It'a beautiful city, Dresden, I've been told...
.sunni> oh right, leigh. so stand up and walk into the other room. sheesh.
.Dinko Tilov> Hi Leigh, my friend, I'm so glad I can finally talk to you! :)
.Leigh> LOL actualy we are about 3 feet away from each other! I broght down my laptop!
NITEFALCON> I love it here. It is a gorgeous city.
.sunni> hahahahahaha - ok - so lift up your head!!!
NITEFALCON> geeze, everyone thinks they are a comedian tonight.
.Leigh> You guys don't know what you are missing!!!! I have got the greatest house guest a Clayer could want!
.Dinko Tilov> But we're not talking to each other. No talking - only typing
.sunni> nite - you need to take more pictures around dresden!! are there any of the old buildings left after the ww2 bombing?
.sunni> dinko - that's so fun to have someone to surf with sitting right next to you!
.Dinko Tilov> And I'm having the greatest vacation with Leigh and with Stephen!
.sunni> a nice break from all your schoolwork, huh? dinko - what did you learn last semester?
CJFOSTER1> I lived in Germany for awhile when I was a little girl. I loved it!! I remember it as so pretty and green.
NITEFALCON> sunni, I have taken TONS of pictures. I just haven't gotten them scanned in. need to do that.
.Leigh> He doesn't even mind being chained to the kitchen table and forced to make DINKOS!
NITEFALCON> most building were rebuilt (but you would never know to look at them)
.sunni> well - nite - time to get busy.....
.Dinko Tilov> Well, I can tell you what I studied, but it's hard to tell what I learned. :)
.sunni> oh!! did they rebuild them in the decorative style?
.sunni> dinko - that'll do!!
.Dinko Tilov> I took physics, math, humanities - ancient greece
NITEFALCON> now there is a combo...how did you come up with ancient greece?
.sunni> oh!! physics and ancient greece!! math - it's ok.
NITEFALCON> sunni....the altstadt was flattened from the war. They rebuilt it exactly like it was stone by stone.
.sunni> dinko - if you're not strong in math, i recommend you take all your math requirements back to back.
.sunni> nite - that's so good to hear. i thought dresden was lost. it was a jewel.
.Dinko Tilov> But now it's all over. .. I'm chained to the kitchen table and claying. Thank God I have a pillow at least... :) Ahhh.. academia, where are you... :)
.Dinko Tilov> Sunni, math is OK, it's physics that bothers me... :)
.sunni> *grin* just a couple weeks away - that's where it is!!
.Leigh> He'll pay for that one, No breakfast for him!
.sunni> isn't physics pretty much just advanced math?
.Leigh> And we have fresh bread and water!
NITEFALCON> there is a lot more to physics than math.
.Dinko Tilov> And amcient greece is a requirement..
NITEFALCON> a requirement for what?
.sunni> seems to me you could apply what you learn about ancient greece to clay. great food for figurine ideas.]
.Dinko Tilov> That's precisely why I find it hard - I was taking only intro to calculus, but by end of semester things were making more sense ...
.Dianne> I bet Dinko has been having a blast with you and Stephen.
.sunni> so if you didn't have the math background, why'd they start you right into physics? or did you pick that?
NITEFALCON> what is it you are majoring in exactly?
.sunni> dianne - who wouldn't. i'd love to spend a week with the ross's!!
.Dianne> Has he gotten Stephen making crazy critters and folksies yet?
.Leigh> We've been having the blast with DINKO!
.Dinko Tilov> Ancient Greece is pretty interesting. It's omething the college thought everyone should go through. We're taking Rome next semester.
CJFOSTER1> I didn't see anything saying where we could see your work. Did I miss it?
.Leigh> Stephen still isn't into making them, but he loves to watch Dinko make them!
.sunni> you'll love studying rome. fascinating civilization!
.Dinko Tilov> I picked Physics myself, because there's another requirement - any kind of science - 2 semesters. Well, physics seemed fundamental, and fundamental it is... :)
.Dianne> How about you, L? Have you been making folksies??
.sunni> connie - it's on the webpage: http://www.polymerclaycentral.com - then just click on dinkos
NITEFALCON> which school are you at?
.sunni> ah!! ok, dinko!!
CJFOSTER1> OK. I'm going out for a minute to look at them.
.sunni> ok connie.

H2O_BABY> we used plastic fork tines to cut holes
H2O_BABY> I tried to get them to take a pic, but they never did
.sunni> oh well. maybe you can build more dinkos with them again, sometime!
.caneguru> That is so cool to hear about polymerclay being used as a therapeutic tool!

.sunni> brb - time to drain the cheewawas.
NITEFALCON> the cus words are usually the first thing people learn

.Leigh> HIs English is excelent, and he even catches most of my sarcasm!!!
.Dinko Tilov> Leigh has not used a single one of "these" words before me! :)

H2O_BABY> now we shall have to, Leigh
.Dinko Tilov> Broccoli - amore mio! :)
.sunni> oh!! how bright and electrifying that clay would be, t-luv!!
CJFOSTER1> They put some precious gems in nuclear reactors to intensify the color. Wonder what it would do to clay.
.caneguru> Tell us about the broccoli Dinko
H2O_BABY> gawwwwwd, the Italians have got him...
.caneguru> (Is that something like Tell me about the rabbits, George?)
.Dinko Tilov> Broccoli is the real danger, not the nuke, I tellya! :)

NITEFALCON> hi again. I had to give my computer a couple of wacks
.caneguru> mental ilness?
.Leigh> I think it would b3e more dangerous if I served it to him!
.caneguru> Like false pregnancy or something? (My background is canine science)
.Kathy> yes called psychogenic polydipsia - fancy words for self induced excessive water drinking
NITEFALCON> how did we get talking about stones all of the sudden? *ears perked up*

.caneguru> I've heard of that
.Kathy> will drink any and all you give her
.sunni> self induced, kat?
.Kathy> doc said she will kill herself if i dont regulate her water
.Dinko Tilov> Because, sunni, it's more lethal than radiation. It tastes so "good" you just wish for some intensive X-raying!
H2O_BABY> isn't that a symptom of rabies?
.Kathy> yes sunni no physical reason for it
.Leigh> We've just been teasing him at every meal that there is brocolli in it since ti's the only food he doesn't like
.caneguru> Nite, we got on that because we were talking about radiation
.Dinko Tilov> To end the suffering
.Kathy> lol no h20
.sunni> ahhhhhhhh. i see!! ;)
NITEFALCON> radiation, stones, excessive water drinking and ....brocolli. now I am really lost
.caneguru> I think lima beans are worse than the broccoli. Evil!
.Kathy> she is only allowed 2 cups a day and she has a hard time with that sometimes
H2O_BABY> broccoli ends suffering? am I lost or what???

.caneguru> yes. That's the Saint Saiens
CJFOSTER1> I can't figure out why some burned and some didn't.
MSPOLYCLAY> I really wanted to learn from Diane Dunville how she makes lamps but she isnT giving any workshops this year
CJFOSTER1> Some of it was the same clay, just thinner.
.sunni> there are hot spots in ovens, connie.
H2O_BABY> perhaps you need a thermometor
.caneguru> I saw her stuff (Dunville) at Ravensdale. It's awesome!
.Leigh> Dinko has been thrilled with being able to bake his critters and not have to watch them the entire time because of the oven
.Kathy> CJ sometimes that will happen because of the pan you are baking on -ive had the same thing happen a couple of ties
H2O_BABY> Leigh said something (I think) about using tile to bake on - heats more evenly
.Dinko Tilov> Oh I've done that quite often in the past. But now that I bake in Leigh's oven I'm so much more sure that what goes in the oven will go out that it's unbelieveble.
.Kimba> Somehow, you just remind me of that happy go lucky flamingo ;-)
CJFOSTER1> aYes, that is what someone else said. I am going to pick up a thermometer tomorrow to test it.
.caneguru> I keep a tile in the back of the oven as a heat sink
H2O_BABY> plus use paper under your pieces, don't touch them to metal
.caneguru> Never thought of myself that way, but I'll go with it Kimba. Thanks!
.Leigh> YES, place a layer of ceramic tiles on the bo9ttom of your oven to help keep the heat more evenly distributed
.sunni> so t-luv - you've learned how ovens work? will that improve your cooking back in the old country?
CJFOSTER1> heat sink????
.caneguru> HAHAHAHA Sunni
NITEFALCON> no one will probably believe me but I cannot find an oven thermometer anywhere in dresden
MSPOLYCLAY> have any of you tried to make lamps?
NITEFALCON> my BF thinks I am nuts for even looking.
.caneguru> How strange, Nite
.Dinko Tilov> Well, Sunni, I guess so, if I get a new oven there. :)
CJFOSTER1> You could probably find one on the internet.
.Leigh> I can send you one NF! email me and we
.Leigh> 'll make arrangements
.sunni> so trade someone something for a thermometer, nite!! or pick one up back home.
NITEFALCON> my BFs logic (true german logic) is that ovens have a thermometer already, why do you need an extra one.
.Dinko Tilov> I believe you NF, you can't find one in Sofia too.
CJFOSTER1> I'd offer to send you one, but it would probably be farenheit.
MSPOLYCLAY> I bought a convection oven on the internet and it works great
.sunni> marilyn - are you thinking of building a lamp from scratch or just covering one?
.caneguru> What about a scientific supply house, Nite?
MSPOLYCLAY> I want to free form a lamp
NITEFALCON> its ok. I could have bought one when I was in the states. haven't burnt anything yet and nothing has fallen apart so I will assume its the same.
.sunni> connie - nite's american. fahrenheidt would be ok!!
.Kathy> I saw someone on CD do a lamp shade - was pretty cool
CJFOSTER1> Does the convection oven work on clay?? My oven can be used either regular or convection.
.caneguru> Wasn't there a lesson in Jewelry Crafts of Dianne Dunville's lamps?
.sunni> you would need to build one around an armature, marilyn.
.Kathy> not sure
.caneguru> I use a convection oven Connie
NITEFALCON> besides calculators can fix those pesky little celcius/farenheit problems
.sunni> yes, connie. Convections are usable!
CJFOSTER1> Do you use the convection for the same amount of ti;me?
H2O_BABY> Has anyone here had an article in JC?
MSPOLYCLAY> did they tell whether the lamp shade had wire or glass armature?
.Leigh> my digital thermometer does both F nad C, has a switch on the back of it to change it
.caneguru> Convection ovens are preferrred by many artists
.caneguru> I believe she uses wireform
.Kathy> the lamp i saw was shade only and was metal frame
.caneguru> You have!
MSPOLYCLAY> the convection oven works great for clay. The same time and temperature just much more even heat
.Leigh> I hven't had an article in JC, but I have in Lapidary Journal, does that count!
.caneguru> Sure does, Leigh
H2O_BABY> I know but I have not gotten my jewelry back from them - it is over 6 mos
.caneguru> Neither has Kellie :(
CJFOSTER1> Do you use the same temmpreture for convection?
.Leigh> Oh no, that seems awful long
H2O_BABY> I think Kellie is having a probolem with that too
NITEFALCON> you had an article in LJ, when?!?
.sunni> !!! no foolin? !!! did you give them a self addressed box?
H2O_BABY> ooh which LJ, Leigh
.Leigh> I think it was 97 and 98
CJFOSTER1> I promise I can spell. I just can't type on my lap top.
.sunni> speaking of kellie....
.caneguru> Kellie! Were your ears just burning?
.Kimba> Hi Kellie!
.Kathy> oh no kellie is here - no typing allowed kellie - LOL
.kellieAK> no, were ya talking about me again?
NITEFALCON> before my time (subscription wise anyway)
.Leigh> spelling doesn't count around here, honest, or I'd be in big trouble
H2O_BABY> hi Kellie, I just mentioned you!
.kellieAK> hey barb
.caneguru> we were talking about how JCMag hasn't returned your necklace
H2O_BABY> how the heck are you?
.Kimba> We nmention Kellie and she appears! MAgic! :-)
.caneguru> We speak good Typonese here
.sunni> kellie - we were wondering if you'd gotten your jewelry back yet.
.kellieAK> hahah! I need to email them
H2O_BABY> I haven't gotten mine back and they don't answer me
MSPOLYCLAY> I formed clay over a glass vase that I covered with paper.
NITEFALCON> well that is just suckky
.kellieAK> nope not yet. shoot, I haven't even spoken to them since they told me they didn't know where the necklace was back in oct
.caneguru> Did it hold up?
.sunni> how'd it turn out, marilyn
H2O_BABY> did you leave it on the vase?
CJFOSTER1> Why the paper???
.sunni> kellie - didn'tknow where it was? how is that possible?
H2O_BABY> they must have lost mine too...
.kellieAK> good question sunni. they don't seem very organized over there
.sunni> don't think i'll consider writing for jc after all.
.caneguru> JCmag seems to be very disorganized administratively
.caneguru> just photo your own stuff Sunni
NITEFALCON> i hope you charge them a WHOLE!!!! lot of money for it if they lost it!
.caneguru> but not digital
H2O_BABY> just send them pics of your work, don't send the work itself
.kellieAK> well, write for them, just odn't send them your item,
CJFOSTER1> Sounds like my house!!!
.sunni> thx, linda. i'll remember that.
.caneguru> You remember my problems with digital pics and them... phooey
.kellieAK> is dinko here?
H2O_BABY> they only have a few people working there I think - how can they misplace things
.sunni> connie - marilyn is trying to make a free form lamp.
.kellieAK> I think it got misplaced around someones neck!
.sunni> no filing system, barb.
.caneguru> Dinko, meet Kellie from Anchorage
MSPOLYCLAY> then I removed the vase and I have a form to work with. It is tall and slender and flares out at the top.
H2O_BABY> Kellie, we have dubbed Dinko "T-Love"
.kellieAK> t-love? and why may I ask?
.sunni> so marilyn, how strong is this all clay form?
H2O_BABY> Marylin, did you glue it back together with TLS?
.caneguru> It is the way his last name is prounounced more or less, Kellie
.kellieAK> ah IC
CJFOSTER1> I don't understand how you could get the vase out without breaking it.
.kellieAK> I'm just gonna lurk here okay???
.caneguru> and both he and Leigh are being awful quiet....
.caneguru> Yes Kellie, rest those wrists!!!
.sunni> good girl, kellie. ((hug))
.Kimba> Less typing Kellie!
.Dinko Tilov> Nice to meet you Kellie!
.kellieAK> *waving at dinko*
.Dinko Tilov> Sorry I didn't pay attention for a second...
.kellieAK> that is okay! it is a busy chat
> .Kimba gives Kellie a warning glance
> .caneguru thinks dinko better sign in to claylandia soon!
H2O_BABY> oh no, Dinko, they are being bad now
MSPOLYCLAY> the form is strong enough to stand alone
.Dinko Tilov> Where do i sign in as a volunteer!!! for claylandia! :)
H2O_BABY> it sounds like a light bulb vessel form - do you add more clay afterwards
.caneguru> Leigh will show you the folder.
MSPOLYCLAY> I plan to add another layer using liquid sculpey
.caneguru> You know that you're in our National Motto, dont you?
CJFOSTER1> I haven't gotten all the way through it.
.Leigh> Kellie, I"m so glad to see you, please take care of your hands, we need you and worry about you!
.sunni> that's an excellent idea, marilyn!
H2O_BABY> what happened to Kellie???
.Dinko Tilov> I do I do. I'm very flattered to be there! Thanks!
.JENNY P> - signed off -
NITEFALCON> carpul tunnel
.sunni> kellie has severe carpal tunnel
.caneguru> boy oh boy, Kellie's wrists, my back.. who's playing the flute and holding the flag?
H2O_BABY> kellie, perhaps you need to get voice recognition SW
.kellieAK> I told rhett the same, but he says my puter can't handle it
CJFOSTER1> I'm not even going to start talking about my problems. I'll sound like the old lady I am getting to be.
.caneguru> Tell him to get you a better computer
.sunni> time for a new puter, kellie.
H2O_BABY> Thank you and the others who contributed to the cake topper
.Kimba> So tell him HE gets to be your voice recognition system! ;-)
H2O_BABY> Kel, I almost didn't have room for those HUGE roses!

.Leigh> Tell me what???? I missed something?
H2O_BABY> we had a competition string on the message board a while back

.sunni> you betcha!!
.Dinko Tilov> Well it's a little longer than the bird lesson, more pictures...
.Dinko Tilov> It will be again sort of detailed, for kids but not only...
H2O_BABY> but the topic is??????
.Dinko Tilov> Dinosaur.
H2O_BABY> or by longer, do you mean SNAKES
.Dinko Tilov> Or something like that. :)
.sunni> oh dinosaurs!!! how wonderful!!
.sunni> i do like the greyhound you cobbled up.
.Dinko Tilov> Snakes, no no, no snakes this time. I meant there are a lot more stages, because it's a bigger animal after all. There some work on the text and some picture editing to do, but..
CJFOSTER1> I've been doing jewelry for my daughter s and trying to gigue out what I could do for my son.
.Dinko Tilov> Thanx sunni. It started as a horse. I actually wanted to make a horse...
H2O_BABY> Boys like BUGS
.Dinko Tilov> ...but soon I guess we'll be ready.
.sunni> an interesting horse!! LOL
H2O_BABY> how old is your son?
.sunni> barb - girls like bugs, too.
CJFOSTER1> Not my son. But he would like a dinosaur.
.Leigh> - signed off -
.JENNY P> and snakes, there is a snake on ebay right now by Jon anderson that is fabulous, take a peek it might give you some ideas
.caneguru> bak but lurking while i eat
.sunni> connie - have your son take the birds with teeth tutorial
H2O_BABY> girls like everything, sunni, boys are told "not to"
.sunni> k linda!
.sunni> what a shame, barb.
CJFOSTER1> Oh, he couldn't do it. But I want to do something for him.
.Dinko Tilov> Sunni, I wanted to make the horse that I made later on for the knight that is on the page, but it just turned into a dog - what could I do?!
.Kimba> WB Linda - you missed it!
.sunni> go with the clay, dinko!! it knows what it wants to be!!
H2O_BABY> when my nephew was 7 he loved kewl necklaces on leather straps - manly jewelry
.caneguru> missed what
.Dinko Tilov> Boys like ugly critters - goblins monsters etc. :)
.sunni> jenny - i love your clowns!! claude is fab!!
H2O_BABY> yes, why are we guessing when we have a boy right here???
CJFOSTER1> I am not sure how to make a necklace he would like.
.Dinko Tilov> That's how I feel about it sunni. When you're in the clay's hands there's nothing you can do :).
.sunni> yeah!! scarey stuff, dinko!!
NITEFALCON> wb leigh
.JENNY P> Thanks! He was one of my favorites too!
.caneguru> missed what????
.sunni> how old is your boy, connie?
.sunni> wb leigh.
CJFOSTER1> He likes trains, police cars, fire trucks.....but I can't figure out how to do those.
.Kimba> Dinko told us about the new lesson
.Dinko Tilov> Hi Leigh!
.Leigh> Hi Dinko~!!!
.Dinko Tilov> I told them everything Leigh....
CJFOSTER1> I have three, but the one I am talking about is almost 9.
.Leigh> Yes, it is so cute!!!
.caneguru> crap i missed it
.Kimba> WB Leigh!
.Leigh> Oh NOOOOOOOOO!!!!! You told them EVERYTHING?????
.sunni> so make him a fireman's hat to hang of a chain. or an fireman's axe. or a piston.
.Dinko Tilov> Hi Leigh! Why didn't you join in from the very beginning of the chat!
.sunni> well - not EVERYthing...
.Leigh> You know Dinko, I can lean over with my marble rolling pin and smack you one upside the head!!!!
.JENNY P> connie there was a lesson in an old polyinformer by sue heaser on making a clay car, you could adapt that into trucks or trains
.Dinko Tilov> OUCH! OUCH! :)
CJFOSTER1> That's an idea. I just haven't been around enoguh to get my ideas working. I am still strugling with making something besides a basic piece of jewlery for the girls.
.sunni> see? always bully the boys when mom's away....
H2O_BABY> boys like making things too - faces, bottles of hope
.Leigh> Serves you right! Next I'll get out my "KEEP STEPHEN AWAKE" water pistol!
NITEFALCON> i am going to call the napcd soon (national assoc, prevention of cruelties to dinkos)
H2O_BABY> put something good in the pistol...
CJFOSTER1> He couldn't do it.
.caneguru> hey how are yhe dogs????
.Dinko Tilov> I'm awake though!!!
.sunni> make him a set of railroad tracks for a bracelet, connie.
.Leigh> I'll shoot them too, Nite!
CJFOSTER1> He has some learning problems (he had FAS) he couldn't do it.
H2O_BABY> how about button covers?
.Leigh> are you talking to me Linda?
H2O_BABY> with kewl designs
CJFOSTER1> He can't button and unbutton.
H2O_BABY> BUT THEY ARE DECORATIVE...
.Leigh> they are fantastic!!! And they love the snow!!!!! The official names are now Boober and Beepers
.JENNY P> hmmm I am thinking you could use an empty toilet paper roll as an armature for a train,
H2O_BABY> OR - HOW ABOUT A CHECKER SET - SOMEONE MADE THAT CHESS SET...
H2O_BABY> TIC TAC TOE SET
.sunni> barb - why are you shouting?
CJFOSTER1> He likes checkers. I could do something with that.
.Dinko Tilov> Checkers and chess are the best!
H2O_BABY> dinko bird checker set
.Leigh> The checker set is kewl! You can make a cane and just cut slices for the chips! I had someone use my dragon cane for a checkers set
.sunni> i'd love to see a dinko chess set.
CJFOSTER1> The only thing is when he gets angry he throws things so the pieces would have to be unbreakable.
.Leigh> 'wait till you see the DINKO Chess set!
.Leigh> The set is done, we have to make the chess board
.sunni> ah - connie, i would use the superflex then. it's more rubbery.
.Kimba> Connie - I saw a great checker set that had animals - 3D ones, for teh pieces instead of flat discs
H2O_BABY> oh, if the pieces break you can make new ones
.sunni> cool!!! i can hardly wait leigh/dinko!!
.Leigh> mix super flex with premo so you don't get too frustrated, super flex is like sticky bubble gum otherwise
.Dinko Tilov> Oh, I used super flex for the first time a few days ago I can't believe how flexuible that stuff is!
.sunni> leigh, that's good to know. i just bought a whole set of it.
.Leigh> and keep it COld
.caneguru> I'm back
CJFOSTER1> I was thinking police cars against fire trucks, or something like that. Not sure how you would crown them though.
.Leigh> i'm front'
.caneguru> I'm sideways
.Dinko Tilov> hi caneguru
.caneguru> and upside down
.sunni> i'm tops

.Dinko Tilov> Bye dianne, nice to talk to you!

.Kimba> Well, with Elissa we have birds with hearts!
.byrd> (at least they are paid for)
.sunni> yesm - play on techniques. dinko has a tute out "birds with teeth"
.Leigh> He does make them quite fast, but I have seen him spending a nice amount of time on some special figures
.caneguru> ooh a composite! Birds with teeth, hearts, horns....
ELISSAHEART> I finally found the typing box!
NITEFALCON> good for you!
.sunni> elissa - you're a hoot.
.byrd> dinko what brand clay do you use most?
.Leigh> Leigh's Clay!
ELISSAHEART> Aren't I?
.Dinko Tilov> Yeah, like someone said on TV the other day "provided there's enough time we can do anything" . :)
ELISSAHEART> Nice to meet you, Dinko!
.Kimba> Umm, isn't that birds with p'orns?
.caneguru> porny birds
.Dinko Tilov> I use all kinds, but super sculpey is my favourite. And premo too.
.sunni> and since you just experimented with superflex, what did you like about it?
.Dinko Tilov> My pleasure ellisaheart!
.Dinko Tilov> It doesn't break that much , so you can afford longer tails and hair and fingernails. :)
.Leigh> and they work well for teh critters too!
.Kimba> Byrd - Linda makes horns from clay thet look very real, and she calls them p'orns
.sunni> really? do you think you'll use the superflex more?
.caneguru> for polymer horns = p'orns
.caneguru> The ornament that Leigh has is a p'ornament
.Dinko Tilov> I think so sunni, especially for the tiny thin parts.
.Leigh> and it's right smack dab in the middle of my tree right out in front, Linda!
.caneguru> LOL! I only made two. You have one and Marie has the other.
.Kimba> Did Leigh get Phil or Gree?
.caneguru> Not sure
.Dinko Tilov> But I have to experiment some more with it sunni...
.sunni> keep us updated. i just bought some and i'm quite fascinated with its resilient quality.
.Dinko Tilov> Isn't it cool! I was totally amazed when I saw some strings that Leigh had made with it!
.sunni> what caught my attention about it is the ability to crochet with it.
.caneguru> Lin!88MHaunani uses flex clay as loops for button closures on necklaces
.Leigh> You just need to find the right mix for what you ar eusing it for, I use it for the leaves, and some of them turn out great, some needed a little more stabiity, they softned up too much
.caneguru> lindly that is
.byrd> cane, what a great idea
.sunni> oh!! is that what you made the leaves out of for the swappers, leigh?
.Leigh> I is very very good and very strong, just can be frustratng because of the sticky
.caneguru> Leigh, your leaves at R'dale? Were they flexclay?
ELISSAHEART> I have a question. Does anyone know if superflex will adhere to the regular clay?
.Leigh> The leaves that were in the RAVE piece were part flexclay, and the long leaves that were in there are wilting like real leaves would, but I didn't want that to happen!
.Leigh> Yes it does
.caneguru> Thx Leigh
.Dinko Tilov> It totally does Ellissa from what I've seen and done.
.sunni> can you mix superflex with the other clays?
ELISSAHEART> That's exciting!
.caneguru> Yes you can Sunni
.caneguru> It's not quite as gummy as the old Super Elasticlay
.Leigh> Yes, but the best mix is with premo, since it is more the same quality and premo has flexibility too
.sunni> *reaches for idea book again*
.sunni> thanx leigh. that's good to know.
.Leigh> Does anyone know what the main use for Elasticlay is???
.Kimba> UHOH!! I think sunni is slipping into mad scientist mode again!!! ;-)
.sunni> nope. not a clue here.
.caneguru> Karen Murphy uses it for making molds
.sunni> uh yup, kimba.
.Kimba> Making molds?.
.caneguru> tell us Leigh!
.sunni> that makes sense. with the flexibility, you should be able to remove the clay being molded easier.
.sunni> do you know leigh?
ELISSAHEART> Excellent idea! Are they as durable as any other oc mold?
.Leigh> Yes, it is very good for makng molds!!! but I don't think that's the main use!!! But then again, I'm not sure, but I've gotten it froj two companies that they sell the most elasticlay to people
.Leigh> making something unuusal
.Dinko Tilov> WHat is it Leigh?
.caneguru> unusual? Is it someting you can mention in polite company?
.sunni> unusual? rings?
.sunni> ah - think dirty?
.Kimba> OH YES!!! I remember your mentioning those!!!!
.Leigh> And once I tell you, you will never look at another package of Elasticaly the same again!
.sunni> life is good!!
.Leigh> Let s jjust say sex toys
ELISSAHEART> alright already! We give up!
.caneguru> That's what I thought. LOL.
.sunni> yup. think dirty.
.caneguru> Great minds run in the same gutter
NITEFALCON> i need to get some sleep guys....i amspacing out here.

.Leigh> Hey, it's me, might aswell think dirty!
.sunni> g'nite nite!! pleasant dreams!!

ELISSAHEART> You and george Bush Sr!
.Kimba> Thank you Linda! :-)
GAIAZEUS> oh yes, i was missing the great pizza of nyc this week!
.Dinko Tilov> I will caneguru!
.Dinko Tilov> What about Bush?
GAIAZEUS> yikes...i wouldn't put dinko and george in the same sentence
ELISSAHEART> Dinko, I know I joined you late, co maybe you have already been asked this question, but do you make your own shaping tools?
GAIAZEUS> the old bush hates broccoli...was a slow news day once years ago
ELISSAHEART> Bush Sr. hates broccoli!
ELISSAHEART> The broccoli farmers were up in arms!
.Kimba> Dinko - Bush Sr got into real trouble years ago when he stated he hated brocolo
GAIAZEUS> anyone else have a spin on that?
.caneguru> Did I post the Curious George link at PCC?
GAIAZEUS> haven't seen it...i'm intrigues though...
GAIAZEUS> intrigued that is
.caneguru> I'll find it and post it later
.Kimba> yes you did, Linda
.caneguru> OH. Thanks Kimba!
.sunni> dinko - a cuticle pusher?
.Dinko Tilov> Bush Sr. sounds like a man of principle to me. I admire his position towards brocoli!
GAIAZEUS> kimba - do you remember the subject title?
.Leigh> He accomplishes miracles with a very limited number of tools, none of which are specific to polyner clay, until i sent him the clay shaper!
.Kimba> not off hand, sorry :-(
GAIAZEUS> thanks...i'll search
.Dinko Tilov> Yeah, Sunni, a cuticle pusher (after a quick consultation with Leigh of course :))
.Kimba> I think it had George in the title though....
.sunni> thought so. you "sent" out a mental image and that's what i caught.
ELISSAHEART> Did the clay shaper make a noticable difference?
.sunni> yeah - how do you like your clayshaper?
.byrd> i love my clayshapers!
.Leigh> From what i understand it just made his work easier!
.Leigh> HI miki!
.caneguru> Miki!!! ((((((((HUGS!))))))))))))
ELISSAHEART> Is a clayshaper just one tool ar a set of tools?
.sunni> hi miki!!!
.Leigh> Well, I only sent him one!
.Kimba> Hi Miki!! It's about time you got here! ;-)
ELISSAHEART> Hi, Miki!
.Leigh> But you can get them in sets
.miki> yeeehaaaa class let out early so i got ot pop in for a few
.caneguru> How are you feeling, Miki?
.sunni> both elissa. there's a range of clayshapers.
.miki> how is everyone?
.Dinko Tilov> The clayshaper made it easier to make the links, when you attach an arm to a body for instance, to smoothen the transition. You can do it with a rigid tool of course, but the rubber end of the pointer is really good for that!
.sunni> hi joan!!
.miki> hey joan!!!
.Kimba> Hi Joan!
.sunni> elissa - saying clayshaper is like saying paintbrush.
.Leigh> Hi joan!!
.byrd> hello loan
.caneguru> Norm! Ooops sorry wrong place
.Dinko Tilov> Hi Joan!
.Joan> I look at the post wrong wwas thinking 11 not 9 sheesh!
.miki> sorry to interrupt Dinko
.Dinko Tilov> Hi miki!
.byrd> i gota go,folks
ELISSAHEART> thanks, Sunni.
.Joan> Hi all!! so continue on!!
.byrd> nice meeting you dinko
.sunni> dinko - when you blend with the clayshaper, does it pull the clay or press the clay together?
GAIAZEUS> (linda - tried that address got a http 404 msg)
.Dinko Tilov> Oh no you're not interrupting anything mii...
.sunni> byrd - you leaving?
.byrd> - signed off -
.caneguru> I just opened it here... It worked
.Kimba> Bye byrd!
.miki> good.....please go ahead....i wish i hadn't missed most of this
GAIAZEUS> (i'll try again)
.Dinko Tilov> It's more like a smoother with which the "joint" between two pieces of clay can be made less visible when needed.
.sunni> ok - gotcha. thx, dinko.
.miki> has the question of pc clothes already been discussed?
.Dinko Tilov> You're welcome, it's not much of a tip really.. :)
.sunni> no miki. which question is that?
.sunni> yes it was, really, dinko.
ELISSAHEART> Another question. Before yoiu start, do you have a mental image of what you want, or do you just create as you go?
.Dinko Tilov> PC clothes?
.caneguru> I'm gonna take a break for a while. Thanks for the chat folx!
.miki> lol...well like how do ya do it?
.sunni> gnite linda!!
.caneguru> nitey nite!
ELISSAHEART> Bye, linda!
.Joan> Night Linda!!!
GAIAZEUS> see ya linda thanks again
.miki> sorry i missed you linda
.Leigh> nite lineq
.Leigh> linda too
.miki> Dinko...are all your creatures nekkid?
.caneguru> lineq... I like it.
.caneguru> - signed off -
ELISSAHEART> Hey, guys! We're bombarding him!
.Leigh> Miki????? That's a personal question!!!
.Dinko Tilov> Sometimes I set out to make something - like a military guy. Then I intentionally try to make something like that, but I have no specific image with all the particulars. I just start the critter and see how it goes.
.sunni> brb - gotta drain the chees again!!
.miki> LOL...weeelll Leigh......hubba hubba
.Dinko Tilov> No, come of them wear bikini. :)
.Joan> LOL!!! Oh la la!!!
.Dinko Tilov> I guess most of the time the ideas come while claying not beforehand.
.Leigh> I can tell you, I get to see them nekkid, but he alsways puts clothes on them to bake them
ELISSAHEART> You mean underwear?
.miki> well i can't seem to make the clothes and it's very frustrating
.Joan> I would think the clothes would be easier then the sculpture
.Leigh> maybe we could do a lesson on a simple figure bnad how to put clothes on them!
GAIAZEUS> sounds like the wild woman swap from the egroups list - you didn't participate did you dinko? (we haven't gotten them back yet)
.Leigh> what do you think DInko?
ELISSAHEART> Greaqt idea, Leigh!
.miki> Leigh that would be awesome
.Dinko Tilov> Well, the clothes I make are really only a shhet of clay wrapped around the critter most of the time, with just little hints that it's an item of clothing (like sleeves, or collars) :)
.miki> Joan the sculptures are easier for me than the clothes
.sunni> oh leigh - if you could get dinko to do a figure + clothes tute, that would send me into ecstasy.
.Joan> I have not tried either so I really can't say!
GAIAZEUS> dinko - it sounds like this is all very intuitive toyou - but not to some of us :)
.Dinko Tilov> Miki, I can do that. Leigh and I will do that!
.sunni> oh goody!!! *smack* thank you!!
.miki> alright Dinko^5 thanks and a big ole hug ((((((Dinko))))))
.Joan> Oh great!!!
ELISSAHEART> Can't wait! I have four old ladies who are waiting for bodies as we speak!
.sunni> ???? bodies?
.miki> LOL....they can have mine Elissa
.sunni> and mine!
.Joan> Ellisa that sounds really bad!!! ROFLOL!!!
GAIAZEUS> cute miki -
ELISSAHEART> thanks for the offer, Miki, but you still need yours!
.Dinko Tilov> GAizeus, It is indeed intuitive mostly, so I apoplgize if I sometimes don't explain myself very clearly taking some things for self explanatory and all. ..
ELISSAHEART> (Look at my "bevy of Beauties")
.miki> brb....save my seat!!
GAIAZEUS> no apology necessary - it's fun to have such a humble artist here in our midst
.sunni> ah - ok elissa. haven't been to the board yet today.
ELISSAHEART> It's in my Photopoint album, Sunni.
.sunni> ok = i'll ck it out later.
ELISSAHEART> Dinko, has anyone ever suggested you do a video?
.Leigh> His Agent is working on it!!
.Dinko Tilov> Leigh and I have talked about it a couple of times Elissa.
.miki> bak...and that's a great idea Elissa
.Joan> Oh good for you Leigh!!!
ELISSAHEART> Who's his agent?
.Dinko Tilov> Leigh is my agent!
.Kimba> I think it is a great idea too! I would buy one! :-)
.Dinko Tilov> :)
ELISSAHEART> I figured! 8D
.miki> I can't imagine how great it would be to be so talented as to need an agent :o)
.Joan> Mind boggeling ain't Miki!!!
.Leigh> I think if he did a video it would appeal to a very wide number of people, from children to adults!!! He is fascinating to watch nad very personable!!!
.miki> and what a great agent to have
.sunni> i know i'd buy one. provided it isn't $40. *sigh*
.miki> me too sunni
ELISSAHEART> I believe you're right, Leigh!
.Dinko Tilov> No, it will be 75 at least :)
.Leigh> And I think it's worth it to see how many more fellas we can get to come out of the closet and admit they want to play with clay!
.Dinko Tilov> Just kidding. :)
.Joan> Hey Jeanie!!
.sunni> hi sweet!
.Kimba> Hi Jeanie!
.Leigh> If we can't get someone to make them, then Dinko and I will make them next Christmas and sell them ourselves!
.miki> $75.00???? 0-<-< <---- thats me in a dead faint
.Dinko Tilov> Hi Jeanie!
.miki> hiya jeanie
.Joan> Oh it that what that is Miki? HEHEHE
ELISSAHEART> I 'm placing my order now, then!

.sunni> 0<8< i would think....
.miki> or 0<8O<
.Dinko Tilov> :)
.Leigh> Well, I'm working on talking with Abba productions, but i also have a feeling that Stephen and I could do this ourselves!!! I think it has a lot of potential, and now that we have to find some way to
.Leigh> make a few dollars, since they turned off the delphi money, its worth looking into!
ELISSAHEART> Now you've lost me.
.Leigh> Anyone want to learn all my translucent secrets???
.sunni> ok leigh. if you and stephen can produce this yourselves, it'll be an excellent start on getting you guys ready for university classes.
.miki> somebody give Elissa a map
.Joan> I think you and Stehpen could do it!! you just need a video cam
.Sweetsmile2(jean> Yes elissa
.Kimba> Of course we do, LeigH!!!!!
.sunni> silly girl. of COURSE we want your translucent secrets!!! and you could make a tape on that, too!

KJ2K> Hi everyone
.sunni> welcome 2k!

.Leigh> See, it's just a matter of getting the cam corder, and we actually have one alredy, it's just old!!!
.Sweetsmile2(jean> hi Karrie
.Joan> So as long as it taped clear it should be fine!
.miki> Leigh...rent one
.Joan> Miki great idea!!
.sunni> yes - rent one that has fade in and fade out - has titling capability.
.Leigh> I'm expecting an inheritance from an uncle who passed away, maybe with that we can start some kind of video business, as long as you can see the work and learn the technique, its worth it! not only
.Leigh> that, we might =not have to charge as much eaither!!!
KJ2K> Joan, thanks for the post about the Carol Duvall show. I had never watched it before
.sunni> i keep sleeping thru CD shows. they only show in the morning here.
