Hi, people!

I haven't been around for quite a while being busy learning to be a Web
designer in "night school" and not having had time for polymer clay... I
used to be well-known around here and now I'm wondering how many of my old
pals are still poking about in the newsgroup. (My new newsgroup reading
software doesn't make it all that easy to tell...)

I saw Dotty and Katherine Dewey (got your book, love your book, going home
to make a mousie!) but I'm sure there must be more of you out there -- yes??
I am trying to decide whether to pretend I can afford to go to Ravensdale
(mostly for Kathy Dewey's dragon/griffin workshop!) so if any of my old pals
are*** out, encourage (or discourage!) me as you see fit!!

If you want to send me e-mail, the preferred address (don't hit reply on

Thanks!

Sherry Bailey

Sherry! I was missing you! So I'm very glad to see you back.
(Say....there's a mask swap starting up---can I interest you in more details?)
Welcome home!!!

How strange!  I was just thinking about you yesterday!  Hope all's
well in your part of the world.  I hope you can come to Ravensdale
this year!  Nice to see you on the newsgroup!

Cheers!

Desiree here, occasionaly bangin' around in this newsgroup. Soooooo glad
to "hear" your voice return. Hope things have been going well for you. You
know, it's almost worthwhile when someone drops away for a time, only
because it makes things so much sweeter when they return.

Let us know if there's a web site of yours to be peeked at.

Desiree

Sherry,

Your absence was deeply felt. I am so glad you are back. I missed your voice
of reason! I hope you'll come to Ravensdale again.

I, too, was just telling someone how odd it was to not see your posts in the
NG, Sherry!  Glad to know you are still out there and o.k.!!! It would be
great to see you at Rdale again, if you can swing it!!

Kathy Dewey, who greatly appreciates the review and would also like to
see your mousie and any webwork you've done.

YOU!!! I have a bone to pick with you!! How come you make that stuff look so
EASY and yet the cat I'm working on (maybe the mouse later) looks strangely
like E.T.?!  (I will not be giving you a run for the money any time soon!!!)
But I will keep practicing and eventually I'm sure I will get it right!
(Sigh!)

Also, I have a confession. I always imagined that your preference for
leached clay was one of those personal preference things, but that *I* would
be perfectly happy using clay straight from the package! HA! WRONG! (Really
really wrong!) Anybody reading this, take note -- the amount of difference
between fresh Premo for sculpting and leached Premo for sculpting is
unbelievable! (E.T. is in leached Premo, by the way -- no excuse there!)

Thanks (everybody) for replying! I hope I can get to R'Dale to see y'all!

Sherry

For beadmaking, too... I got some silver Premo that could be
spread with a butterknife!  It was a real challenge to
TOUCH.  I had to make beadholes by ever-so-slightly dimpling
the raw bead, then using the Dremel after it was baked -
otherwise I'd have had beads that resembled innertubes!

Kelly, who is super-glad you're back, Sherry!

Oh, you people, you people!
The cat is the most difficult animal in the book, the mouse the easiest.
Begin at the beginning.  Every animal teaches.  Each successive animal
relies on previously learned techniques while it teaches a new
technique.  So, put the cat aside and go back to the beginning.  The
mouse teaches a lot about assembly and texture, but is small enough so
that lessons are learned quickly.  The rabbit and seal introduce foil
cores that reduce baking times, and creating a compact sculpture
as well as working on a larger scale. The bear and basset expand on foil
core shaping, working with greater amounts of clay,and forming limbs.
The fox and fawn take the limb techniques further. The frog and bird are
two examples of very different animals made over similar foil cores and
with similar armatures in the toes. They expand on texture techniques
as well. After all of this, you're ready to tackle the cat, a very fussy
creature made with slightly softer clay (it's that Granitex/Premo
blend).

letters

But Kathy -- that would imply FOLLOWING DIRECTIONS!! Moi?!

(I kind of figured out that it was a sequence you intended after getting
going, actually, but I am aiming to make replicas of my two real cats and I
THOUGHT it would be a help having them right there. No mice to be found,
thank goodness! I found out what rotton models the cats are in the process,
too! Live and learn!)

Are you going to make companion videos so we can see everything in 360
degrees, huh, are ya, huh??!! (Would you like me to shut up?!)

I think I will just leave the book arfully arranged on my coffee table with
my Dewey original mouse and bunny and let everybody imagine I did it myself!
HA! (I'm sure I'll fool ALL my friends that way!)
